Home / Education / Glossary / Halving


In the context of Bitcoin, halving refers to a pre-programmed event in which the block reward provided to miners for validating transactions is cut by half. This practice is repeated at regular intervals, often every four years, and is intended to manage inflation while progressively reducing the issuance of new coins.

Halvings are important in the cryptocurrency’s economic model because they ensure a limited and predictable supply over time.
