Longest Bear Market ever in Bitcoin History 1


No one knows when the market downtrend will end and we see an increase in the price of the cryptocurrencies. Adoption is on the way and institutional investors are waiting for Bitcoin (BTC) Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) eagerly. Bakkt and Fidelity are in its final stages to introduce cryptocurrencies to their users. According to crypto experts Bitcoin (BTC), the bottom is near. 

Bitcoin halving is in May 2020. Halving is a process which occurs every 4 years or every 210,000 blocks and reduces the block reward by half. 
In 2009 when Bitcoin (BTC) is introduced to the world the reward per block is 50 BTC. After 2012 halving block reward reduced to 25 BTC which fuels the bull run of 2013 leading the Bitcoin price to $1190. 
After 2016 halving block reward is reduced to 12.5 BTC which is the key factor of the massive bull run of 2017 leads the price to $19760. 

Next halving takes place in May 2020 and the reward per block is reduced to 6.25 BTC. We hope that Bitcoin will follow its previous steps and may see a massive bull run in 2021-2022.
