The first BTC halving took place in November 28th, 2012. The main purpose of Bitcoin halving is to keep a steady and predictable supply of new Bitcoins entering the market to avoid inflation.

Bitcoin price usually increases in the months leading up to halving as investors buy in anticipation of increased demand for Bitcoin after the event.

Miners receive a fee of 6.25 BTC for each Bitcoin block mined in the current era, which began after the third halving event on May 11, 2020. The daily average of 144 blocks, which indicates that roughly 900 BTC is generated and given out every day, was taken.

The fourth halving event will ‘halve’ this incentive and bring its value down to 3.125 BTC per block. Every day, roughly 450 BTC in rewards will be dispensed if the daily average of blocks remains the same.
