Mining Reward - When Will The Last Bitcoin Be Mined? - Bitcoin Stack Exchange

Mining Reward - When Will The Last Bitcoin Be Mined? - Bitcoin Stack Exchange

Estimates have been thrown around a lot recently as to the year in which the last Bitcoin will be mined- where are these estimates coming from? Could someone send me to the relevant code? The code is in the one of the answers to the question I am marking this as a duplicate with. (Nick's to be specific.) The accepted answer goes into more of the algoritm and schedule. David Ogren May 2 '13 at 2:41 possible duplicate of How many bitcoins will there eventually be? David Ogren May 2 '13 at 2:41 Actually this was the question I was really looking for. It might be a better dup of this one : bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/9959/ David Ogren May 2 '13 at 2:42 The estimate is 2140 based on the block reward halving frequency of four years. According to math and knowledge that there are 32 halving events , in 2136, the block reward will yield 0.00000168 BTC per day, which is 0.00000042 BTC per block. That's 42 satoshis . It's arguable that there could be one additional halving, to a block reward of 0.00000021 BTC, but that would require a major protocol modification since the number of Bitcoin would then exceed 21 million. Additionally, to go past that, there'd have to be a protocol modification to extend divisibility past eight decimal places. It is far, far to early to worry about either of these, because we're more than a century away from this problem. Continue reading >>

#1 Simple Bitcoin Price History Chart (since 2009)

#1 Simple Bitcoin Price History Chart (since 2009)

Bitcoin was not traded on any exchanges in 2009. Its first recorded price was in 2010. Technically, Bitcoin was worth $0 in 2009 during its very first year of existence! Bitcoin's price never topped $1 in 2010! Its highest price for the year was just $0.39! Bitcoins price is measured against fiat currency, such as American Dollars (BTCUSD), Chinese Yuan (BTCCNY) or Euro (BTCEUR). Bitcoin therefore appears superficially similar to any symbol traded on foreign exchange markets. Unlike fiat currencies however, there is no official Bitcoin price; only various averages based on price feeds from global exchanges . Bitcoin Average and CoinDesk are two such indices reporting the average price. Its normal for Bitcoin to trade on any single exchange at a price slightly different to the average. But discrepancies aside, what factors determine Bitcoins price? The general answer to why this price? is supply and demand. Price discovery occurs at the meeting point between demand from buyers and supply of sellers. Adapting this model to Bitcoin, its clear that the majority of supply is controlled by early adopters and miners. Inspired by the rarity of gold, Bitcoin was designed to have a fixed supply of 21 million coins, over half of which have already been produced. Several early adopters were wise or fortunate enough to earn, buy or mine vast quantities of Bitcoin before it held significant value. The most famous of these is Bitcoins creator, Satoshi Nakomoto. Satoshi is thought to hold one million bitcoins or roughly 4.75% of the total supply (of 21 million). If Satoshi were to dump these coins on the market, the ensuing supply glut would collapse the price. The same holds true for any major holder. However, any rational individual seeking to maximise their returns would distribute Continue reading >>

Controlled Supply - Bitcoin Wiki

Controlled Supply - Bitcoin Wiki

A fixed money supply, or a supply altered only in accord with objective and calculable criteria, is a necessary condition to a meaningful just price of money. [1] Fr. Bernard W. Dempsey, S.J. (1903-1960) In a centralized economy, currency is issued by a central bank at a rate that is supposed to match the growth of the amount of goods that are exchanged so that these goods can be traded with stable prices. The monetary base is controlled by a central bank. In the United States, the Fed increases the monetary base by issuing currency, increasing the amount banks have on reserve or by a process called Quantitative Easing . In a fully decentralized monetary system, there is no central authority that regulates the monetary base. Instead, currency is created by the nodes of a peer-to-peer network. The Bitcoin generation algorithm defines, in advance, how currency will be created and at what rate. Any currency that is generated by a malicious user that does not follow the rules will be rejected by the network and thus is worthless. Bitcoins are created each time a user discovers a new block .The rate of block creation is adjusted every 2016 blocks to aim for a constant two week adjustment period (equivalent to 6 per hour.) The number of bitcoins generated per block is set to decrease geometrically, with a 50% reduction every 210,000 blocks, or approximately four years. The result is that the number of bitcoins in existence is not expected to exceed 21 million. [2] Speculated justifications for the unintuitive value "21 million" are that it matches a 4-year reward halving schedule; or the ultimate total number of Satoshis that will be mined is close to the maximum capacity of a 64-bit floating point number. Satoshi has never really justified or explained many of these constan Continue reading >>

What Is The Bitcoin Mining Block Reward?

What Is The Bitcoin Mining Block Reward?

The Bitcoin block reward refers to the new bitcoins distributed by the network to miners for each successfully solved block. Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoins creator, set the block reward schedule when he created Bitcoin. It is one of Bitcoins central rules and cannot be changed without agreement between the entire Bitcoin network. The block reward started at 50 BTC in block #1 and halves every 210,000 blocks. This means every block up until block #210,000 rewards 50 BTC, while block 210,001 rewards 25. Since blocks are mined on average every 10 minutes, 144 blocks are mined per day on average. At 144 blocks per day, 210,000 blocks take on average four years to mine. Total circulation will be 21,000,000 coins. Itll be distributed to network nodes when they make blocks, with the amount cut in half every 4 years. first 4 years: 10,500,000 coins next 4 years: 5,250,000 coins next 4 years: 2,625,000 coins next 4 years: 1,312,500 coins etc - Satoshi Nakamoto The block reward is the only way that new bitcoins are created on the network. Satoshi explained this in an early email post in 2009: Coins have to get initially distributed somehow, and a constant rate seems likethe best formula. The block reward creates an incentive for miners to add hash power to the network. The block reward is what miners try to get using their ASICs, which make up the entirety of the Bitcoin network hash rate. ASICs are expensive, and have high electricity costs . Miners are profitable when their hardware and electricity costs to mine one bitcoin are lower than the price of one bitcoin. This means miners can mine bitcoins and sell them for a profit. The more hash power a miner or mining pool has, the greater the chance is that the miner or pool has to mine a block. As miners add more hash rate, more sec Continue reading >>

"effect Of Halving Of Bitcoin Production On Price In Usd. " By Trader Ndthl Published June 26, 2017 Tradingview

So I did a comprehensive chart of BTC on Trading View using Brandon Kelly's latest video as instructions (I have put 3 vertical lines in, one for each halving (2012-11-28 and 2016-07-09) and one for the upcoming soft fork on 2017-08-01. I have also put a number of trendlines on, intersecting every time the 7 (green) and 21 (red) day trend lines cross the 77 (orange) day trend line . The angle is the last two 77 day touches. The two purple ones predict exactly the value of the 7 and 21 day trend lines on 2017-06-26. They are from 77 day trendline crosses on 2014-11-30 and 2014-12-12 :-) The reason why I made the chart was to see the effect of the halvings. It's apparent the first one resulted in a rally shortly after. For the second one it's apparent there was a rally shortly before. The people buying BTC are still practicing? ... :-) Comment: One thing I missed in the initial description is that it takes a year for the halving to take effect in the form of a massive spike. Then the next 3 years until the following halving there is a drop and gradual start to the next rally triggered by the halving. We are at the peak after the 2016 halving, there will be a big drop to the one in 2020. Continue reading >>

Crypto-mania appears set to unwind once again. The other day we were noting that if Ethereum soon turns swiftly lower it could mark the 3rd peak of a topping pattern with potential of more than halving its price. While the price sequence isnt as decisive for Bitcoin , sellers were found in an area we were looking to as a potentially big turning point. To see how traders are positioned in Cryptocurrencies and other markets, check out the IG Client Sentiment page. Ethereum looks to have posted 3rd peak of an ominous topping pattern The other day when we were last discussing Ethereum it was pushing towards a trend-line we had penciled in as resistance. It didnt quite make it that line, instead stalling from around lows created a month-ago. In any event, the turn lower was swift and may have cemented a top.

Bitcoin Next Halving - From 12.5 To 6.25 In Less Than 3 Years

Bitcoin Next Halving - From 12.5 To 6.25 In Less Than 3 Years

BITCOIN NEXT HALVING - From 12.5 to 6.25 in less than 3 years Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction. Advertise here. At this rate, I see bitcoin EASILY being 6 figures in 3 years. 6 BTC is just a tiny amount of coins, so im pretty sure someone owning double the reward (12+) is going to be pretty wealthy. Eventually, anyone owning 21 or more, is going to be pretty rich. I don't care how the scaling drama ends up, even if bitcoin stays as it is, the price will keep going up (even tho other alts will profit from the lack of scaling, but bitcoin is the cryptocurrency backbone reserve with the best devs and the most solid blockchain with the oldest history, all of those are big valuable qualities within itself) you are talking about a price rise, and a big one at that but yet you are rounding up 0.25BTC from the reward as Billy said when it comes to price all this drama about block size don't matter. there is still the same amount of bitcoin available and with each halving the reward is lower so it decreases the sell pressure coming from miners selling bitcoin. aka lower supply + higher demand = moon. Well, basically just holding at this point. It's tempting to sell right now but considering that we do have the halving coming up in what is a relatively short time I think paying attention to the market and avoiding any massive crashes is all that should be done, the rest should just be simple accumulation. Kind of nuts to think about, kind of stoked for this and I hope there are some interesting events to spice up the time between now and then. Even with what other people are saying I feel this is one of the main things that's going to be pushing the miners more and more under the centralize Continue reading >>

Vertcoin Reward Halving Explained

Vertcoin Reward Halving Explained

Vertcoin Dev Team | I talk about Crypto and stuff On December 12, 2017 Vertcoin will undergo its first ever block reward subsidy halving. The halving will occur on block 840,000 and reduce mining rewards by 50% from 50 VTC per block to 25 VTC per block. This halving occurs roughly every 4 years and will continue to half until the supply is fully emitted. But what does this all really mean? Will mining be impacted? What about the value of the coin? Should we expect a spike in price? All good questions and all will be answered. Lets get into it. Before I dive into the specifics of halving, lets address a simple yet commonly misunderstood concept: Where do new Vertcoins come from? Within every block that is mined and added to the blockchain, there is a transaction that contains a 50 VTC mining reward. This reward is sent to the miner (or miners in a pool) that solve this block. When you mine VTC youre receiving brand new freshly created Vertcoins. This translates to roughly 28,800 new VTC created and added to the total supply daily. Vertcoin has a max supply of 84,000,000, four times the max supply of Bitcoin. Every 4 years the subsidy will half until the last Vertcoin is emitted. Like gold there is a finite supply of Vertcoin making it a deflationary asset. This means with time, every Vertcoin increases in rarity, become harder to obtain and ultimately increases in value. So the mining reward is being cut in half, as a miner, does this mean Ill receive less coins from mining? In short, yes. At halving, assuming the number of miners and hash rate remains somewhat consistent, everyone should expect less VTC paid out compared to the blocks prior. This will invariably cause a drop in network hash due to miners shutting down their rigs as they will find mining not be as profi Continue reading >>

The Halvening! Bitcoin Halving For Rocket Lovers

The Halvening! Bitcoin Halving For Rocket Lovers

In the Bitcoin network, user transactions are grouped in blocks and recorded to a digital public ledger called a blockchain . Miners are in charge of this task, and receive a mining reward in the form of bitcoins for each block recorded. The amount of bitcoins rewarded for each block decreases with time: it is halved every 4 years . This event, the moment when the mining reward is divided by 2, is commonly called "Bitcoin halving". Other denominations are used: "reward drop", "reward halving", or simply "the halving" or "the Halvening" which is a popular meme among bitcoiners. When Bitcoin was created in 2009 , the initial reward was 50 bitcoins. In november 2012, it dropped to 25btc after the first halving. The second halving will take place in July 2016, decreasing the reward to 12.5btc. Read more... As any freely traded asset, Bitcoin price depends solely on demand and supply. The evolution of bitcoins supply is hard coded and is known to everyone, so it all depends on the evolution of demand. Bitcoin being a very young currency with much room to grow in use and value, I would personally bet on a price increase. How much? When? It remains 100% unpredictable. One thing is certain though: at the time of Halving, the supply reduction will already be priced in the exchange rate, thanks to market anticipation. So don't expect a big price movement on Halving Day. Note that other examples of halvings are available for comparison. The first Bitcoin halving occurred on the 28th of November 2012 . On that day the price went up +1.7%, a negligible move. However the preceding and following months showed continued growth and led to the famous early-2013 rally (from 13$ to 260$ in 4 months). More recently, the Litecoin, a Bitcoin clone, passed its first halving on August 25th, 20 Continue reading >>

What Is The Bitcoin Halving And Why Is It Important?

What Is The Bitcoin Halving And Why Is It Important?

What is the Bitcoin Halving and Why is It Important? July 08, 2016, 04:37:59 PM EDT By Bitcoin Magazine An event is about to take place on the Bitcoin network that only happens roughly every four years. The amount of new bitcoin created and earned by miners with each new block of transactions is about to be cut in half. This is part of bitcoins predictable, transparent monetary policy , which can be verified in the source code available on the Bitcoin Core GitHub repository . When these sorts of changes in bitcoins inflation rate take place, it's known as a halving event . This upcoming halving is expected to take place this Saturday when block 420,000 is mined. Before getting into the effects of the bitcoin halving, its important to understand some of the basics of bitcoin mining . When someone creates a new Bitcoin transaction, it is sent around to all of the other nodes on the network, including those who are also contributing to the mining process. These transactions are collected and stored locally while the miners are also working on a puzzle of sorts, which requires a lot of computing power to solve. If a miner solves the puzzle before anyone else, they earn the ability to publish the new block of transactions to the public blockchain and collect a reward of 25 bitcoins (soon to be 12.5 bitcoins) plus any transaction fees. The mining process is the genius of Satoshi Nakamoto s creation. Miners essentially prove that they have skin in the game by trying to solve the puzzle that goes along with each new block of transactions. The ability to solve that puzzle proves to the rest of the network that the miner spent money on various resources (hardware, electricity, etc.) and has earned the right to mine a block. The miner is willing to spend money on those resources Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Halving Event: What You Need To Know Quartz

Bitcoin Halving Event: What You Need To Know Quartz

Already over the past year, Craig Wright stepped forward as Satoshi Nakamoto, bitcoins anonymous founder , but later backed away from those claims; a civil war raged at the upper echelons of the bitcoin community over changes to the networks code; a renowned bitcoin developer wrote a eulogy for the cryptocurrency ; and another virtual currency, ethereum, exploded in popularity . Against this backdrop, the price of bitcoin has nearly tripled. Its nearly impossible to say why bitcoin has done so well. But as an asset not directly tied to a single economy, it tends to attract investors when theres a lot of volatility. Theres certainly been no shortage of that. Now, a looming event expected around July 9th, known as the halving, could rattle the entire bitcoin systemits price, its stability, and its future. Before we get started, we should go over how bitcoin works. Bitcoin is a digital currency that lets two people enter into a financial transaction without any middlemen. While simple to use, the technology is loaded with checks and balances to eliminate fraud. One of the keys to preventing fraud is the process of mining . Bitcoin transactions are stored on something called a block. If the bitcoin network is essentially a massive accounting book, then the blocks are its pages. Each block can store 1 megabyte of data, and its the miners job to confirm the authenticity of the transactions contained in the block. The miners do that by taking each transactions corresponding data and using it to complete a math problem. The solution is known as a hasha shorter unique string of digits that has all the important transaction information within the block. Once completed, the hash ties back to the last block, which is how bitcoin creates a permanent, unalterable transaction record. Continue reading >>

The Reward For Mining Bitcoin Was Just Cut In Half

The Reward For Mining Bitcoin Was Just Cut In Half

The reward for mining Bitcoin was just cut in half Hype check: Pokmon Go says more about Pokmon than it does about AR Bitcoin just experienced a major milestone in its short little lifespan. The reward for mining a block (a block = a ledger of transaction data) was just cut in half from 25 bitcoinsto 12.5 bitcoins. This means that assuming a price of $650 per coin,going forward miners will make ~$8,125 per block they mine, compared to $16,250 before the halving. But its ok! This is allsupposed to happen. Let me explain. When the code for Bitcoin was written, it was designed to be a currency with no more than 21 million bitcoins ever in circulation. And to encourage people to mine (which is what validates and supports the entire bitcoin network), Satoshi created a reward that went along with each block. When Bitcoin was first created, the reward was set at 50 bitcoins per block mined. And, the code specified that every 210,000 blocks mined that reward would be cut in half, until it eventually is reduced to zero after 64 halving events. This exponential halving means that even though the last halving wont occur for over 100 years, 75% of all bitcoins have already been mined and distributed. So, today was the second ever halving in the history of Bitcoin. The first halving (when the reward was cut from 50 to 25 bitcoins) was back in November of 2012, when the price was around $12 dollars. Ok, enough of the history lesson. You probably just want to know how this will effect the price of bitcoin. In a perfect market the USD/BTC price would have simply doubled, to compensate for half as much bitcoinbeing rewarded. This logically would make sense, since the cost of mining isnt changing at all, and without a doubling of price miners are instantly seeing their revenue cut in ha Continue reading >>

How Bitcoin's Second Halving Came And Went, And Not Much Happened

How Bitcoin's Second Halving Came And Went, And Not Much Happened

Bitcoin's block reward halved for the second time last week, from 25 to 12.5 bitcoins. The event, commonly referred to as the halving (or sometimes: the halvening), was a key moment in Bitcoin's history. Such halvings are scheduled to occur once in about every four years, and they ensure that no more than 21 million bitcoins will ever be in circulation. Unsurprisingly, the halving was highly anticipated, and predictions on how the event would impact the Bitcoin ecosystem abounded. One week since the second halving, this is the aftermath. Perhaps the most debated issue leading up to the halving concerned Bitcoins exchange rate. As Bitcoin's price is based on supply and demand, some thought a cut in supply would naturally lead to an increase in price. But since the halving did not come as a surprise, others expected the market to have anticipated the supply cut, and would have already priced it in. Others believed that an anticipation of a price increase could actually have resulted in a bit of a bubble, and therefore expected a fall in price. Now, one week after the halving, it's clear the price has not moved substantially at least not by such an extent that it is obvious the halving is the cause of it. Hovering around $675, compared to about $650 at the time of halving, the exchange rate did increase by a couple percentage points. But thats not unusual for Bitcoin. It can, however, be argued that the price increase as a result of the halving did occur in anticipation of the event that the halving was indeed anticipated and calculated in. Bitcoin's exchange rate rose about 50 percent (from $430) in the three months ahead of the halving, and even more than doubled (from $300) compared to a year ago. And, of course, how the halving will affect Bitcoin's price in the near Continue reading >>

What Is The 'halving'? A Primer To Bitcoin's Big Mining Change - Coindesk

What is the 'Halving'? A Primer to Bitcoin's Big Mining Change Of all the rules inbitcoin's code, few are as revered as the hard limit of bitcoin production. The codedictatesthat 21 million coins will be released over the course of bitcoin's lifecycle. By limiting the total amount of bitcoins that could be created, Satoshi Nakamoto was able to establisha defined amount of available data, a revolutionary accomplishment in and of itself. The limited production of bitcoins was, in a way, aimed at counteracting the endless printing of papercurrencies. Nakamoto compared it to the discovery and mining of goldin theoriginal Bitcoin white paper , writing: "By convention, the first transaction in a block is a special transaction that starts a new coin owned by the creator of the block. This adds an incentive for nodes to support the network, and provides a way to initially distribute coins into circulation, since there is no central authority to issue them. The steady addition of a constant of amount of new coins is analogous to gold miners expending resources to add gold to circulation. In our case, it is CPU time and electricity that is expended." But in the actual code, there is actually no constant of amount of new coin. Instead, there are rules in place that dictate how much bitcoin will be released and when and how that supply is reduced overtime, ultimately leadingto a time during whichthere will be no new bitcoins released. Each time a new block is added to the bitcoin network, freshly minted bitcoins are rewarded to whichever miner discovered the valid block. This reward, initially set to 50 BTC, fell to 25 BTC in late 2012. Sometime next month, this number is expected to fall to 12.5 BTC. This event is known as a "halving". According to the Bitcoin Core Client, main.c Continue reading >>
