This halving reduces the new supply of Bitcoin and is expected to occur around April 20. Historically, it has proven to be a bullish wind for prices, although there are doubts about whether a repeat is likely given that Bitcoin already reached a record high in mid-March.

During today’s trading moments, the price of Bitcoin dropped by 4.3% to $63,245. Meanwhile, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market value saw a decline of around 4.31% to $3,085.

Inflows into three-month-old Bitcoin exchange-traded funds in the United States helped push it to an all-time high of $73,798 last month.

Marszalek concluded: “I expect a significant positive impact over the next six months following the Bitcoin halving.”
