Bitcoin Halving View from the Crypto Valley
May 7 @ 16:00 - 17:00
Time for Bitcoin to earn its place under the sun?
Join the event through Evenbrite, we will provide the access link to the online streaming the day before the event:
The imminent occurrence of the reward halving on the Bitcoin network is a privileged moment to look closer at a number of topics:
• What is the real short-term and mid-term impact to be expected on the price levels caused by this sudden fresh offer shortage?
• How did miners prepare for this event, and is this profitability shock causing a singular threat to the safety level of the network?
• The halving events highlight the predictability of monetary emission in cryptocurrencies as opposed to arbitrary monetary policies conducted by central banks. We witness the very moment when a vast economic crisis triggered by a pandemic is threatening to overwhelm already over-indebted States. In the turmoil to come, the value-proposition of debased unstoppable pure cryptocurrencies whose money supply is written in code is likely to meet popular adoption flying away from fiat hyperinflation in many countries. Has the historical time come for Bitcoin & co to earn their place under the sun?
