Mati Greenpan sees in the Bitcoin Halving strong Push factor
According to Martin Greenspan, Senior Market Analyst at eToro, is the limited amount of Bitcoin one of the main reasons for the Rally this year. In a customer message, he pointed to the upcoming Bitcoin Halving, the on 24. May next year is expected in the case of block number #630,000. Bitcoin Halving is an event in which the number of Block generated the Bitcoin reward is halved. The total number of miners mined Bitcoins will be reduced in the next Bitcoin Halving from 12.5 to 6.25 BTC. This is according to Greenspan, a driving factor of the Bitcoin price, and is partly responsible for the current development (freely translated):
The recent increases in Bitcoin are mainly due to the supply side. There is already a shortage of Bitcoin in the world, and with the upcoming Halving in the next may, the Countdown for an even lower offer has already begun.
These models also confirm findings from new research of the Digital Asset Research company Diar. The results clearly show that the whales collect since August of last year continuously in Bitcoin, and not sell, but “hodln” (freely translated):
About 26% of the circulating supply of Bitcoin to the value of 36 billion US-dollars are now in the addresses with an account balance of 1,000 to 10,000 BTC. In August, 2018, as Bitcoin was also $ 8,000, were these addresses are less than 20% of the available Supplies, which indicates a strong accumulation of almost 7% in less than a year.
The study also shows that private investors are increasingly investing in Bitcoin. Whether these explanations actually have led to the current rise of Bitcoin, it can not be guaranteed. Nevertheless, the Adaption of Bitcoin is progressing every day.
