The Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) halving, anticipated by the cryptocurrency community, is approaching rapidly, with less than 3000 blocks remaining until it occurs.

Expected between April 18 and April 22, 2024, coinciding with the mining of the 840,000th block, this event will reduce the block reward from 6.25 to 3.125 bitcoins.

This reduction in rewards directly affects miners' incentives and could impact the broader market dynamics of Bitcoin.

Bitcoin's deflationary economic model is upheld by halvings, gradually decreasing new bitcoin issuance until reaching the maximum supply cap of 21 million, thus controlling inflation and enhancing scarcity.

Historically, Bitcoin halvings have led to significant fluctuations in its market value, making them highly anticipated events for investors and market analysts.
