Reward Halving Event

« Back to Glossary Index

A reward halving event is a predetermined event in the Bitcoin network that halves the reward for mining new blocks every 210,000 blocks, or approximately every four years. This mechanism ensures that the total supply of Bitcoin will approach 21 million but never actually reach it, aiming to prevent inflation.
