Bitcoin Halving Failed Us 🥲

Date:

Hello there and how was your weekend?

Ours didn’t go as planned… especially with the halving having little effect on prices… it felt uneventful for something that was all over the headlines. However, the supply shock usually takes a few months to be priced in after the halving.

On the bright side, Runes launched, and miners made over $106m in fees… 5x what they made from previous halvings… 

However, here is the price of Bitcoin at the time of the previous halving events versus the following year’s peak price of BTC:

     November 28, 2012: $13 ➡️ $1,163

     July 9, 2016: $664 ➡️ $19,666

     May 11, 2020: $8,722 ➡️ $69,000

     April 19, 2024: $65,506 ➡️ _______

Where do you think Bitcoin will be at the end of this peak?
