Bitcoin Halving – View from Crypto Valley

7. May 2020 @ 16:00 - 17:00 CEST

Time for Bitcoin to earn its place under the sun?

About the event

The imminent announcement of the halving of the charge for the miners in the Bitcoin network is a privileged moment to take a closer look at a number of issues:

What short and medium-term effects can actually be expected on the price level?
How have the miners prepared for this event, and does this profitability shock pose a unique threat to the security level of the network?
The "halving" events illustrate the predictability of monetary issuance in crypto-currencies as opposed to the arbitrary monetary policy of central banks. We are witnessing the moment when a huge economic crisis triggered by a pandemic threatens to overwhelm already overindebted states. In the coming turbulence, the value concept of unstoppable pure crypto-currencies, whose maximum money supply is fixed in the code, will probably meet with wider acceptance in many countries. Has the historic time come for Bitcoin & Co. to earn their place under the sun?
