Bitcoin: Approaching its fourth halving, expected to reduce annual selling pressure by $10 billion

Bitcoin will undergo its fourth halving on April 18, 2024, reducing the block reward from 6.25 bitcoins to 3.125 bitcoins, further diminishing bitcoin's production and selling pressure.


Before the halving, Bitcoin's annual output was approximately 330,000 bitcoins. Calculated at a price of $65,000 per bitcoin, this would introduce over $200 billion in selling pressure to the market. Following the halving, the annual selling pressure of Bitcoin will also halve, effectively reducing it by $100 billion, thereby alleviating the selling pressure.

Bitcoin: Historically, following each of the three halvings, there has been a significant increase in price in the subsequent year

A common trend among halvings is a significant price increase in the year following the event. With less than 30 days remaining until the fourth halving, the market is beginning to factor in the impact of this event. There is a high probability that Bitcoin will continue to experience volatile upward movements. 

Bitcoin: ETFs receiving accelerated fund inflows, fueling continued upward momentum

On January 10th, BTC spot ETFs were approved, leading to billions of dollars in off-exchange fund inflows thereafter, further driving the continuous upward trend of Bitcoin. 


Taking cues from the gold ETF, the introduction of the first gold ETF led to a decade-long bull run for gold, with gains exceeding 400%. Currently, the market value of gold is $14.5 trillion, while Bitcoin's market value is only $1.3 trillion, indicating that Bitcoin still has ten times the potential compared to gold. Moreover, the launch of Bitcoin ETFs is more favored than that of gold ETFs in their respective periods, with the speed of fund inflows significantly leading the way.

Inscriptions: Bitcoin's native innovation, poised to trigger a third wave of enthusiasm

In January 2023, Bitcoin developer Casey Rodarmor introduced the Ordinals protocol, allowing users to embed data into the Bitcoin blockchain, thus creating NFTs and token-like assets on Bitcoin, ushering in a new era of innovation within the Bitcoin ecosystem. Since its launch, Ordinals has accumulated over 60 million total inscriptions.


Inscriptions represent a native innovation within the Bitcoin ecosystem, attracting more users and developers to the Bitcoin community. Various new applications and gameplay mechanics continue to emerge. When Bitcoin undergoes its next halving, market attention will once again shift towards the Bitcoin ecosystem, and inscriptions are poised to kick off a third wave of enthusiasm. 

Runes: The Runes protocol is expected to go live during the halving, and Rune Stone is poised to become a core asset

Rune Stone, introduced by Leonidas, the founder of the Ord.io browser, completed its initial distribution by airdropping NFTs to 112,383 Bitcoin addresses. Its current market value exceeds $300 million. Rune Stone has become the representative asset of the Runes Protocol. More and more projects are starting to airdrop tokens to users holding Rune Stones. Rune Stone possesses significant potential for imagination, and its future applications and gameplay are highly anticipated. 


Additionally, after the launch of the Runes Protocol, users holding Rune Stones will be able to convert them into fungible tokens. Rune Stone embodies a narrative of "Runes protocol" + "Airdrop asset" + "Coin issuance expectation" and is poised to become a core asset.

Meme: Blue-chip NFT mfers launched its token, soaring from 0 to a $200 million market cap in just 12 hours

On March 30th, the founder of the blue-chip NFT project mfers, sartoshi, launched the token mfercoin. In the whitepaper, mfercoin was described as a meme coin with no intrinsic value, profit expectations, or prescribed utility. 80% of the tokens were injected into the liquidity pool, while the remaining 20% were airdropped to the mfers community.


The NFT project mfers was launched in 2021, sparking a wave of PFP frenzy in the crypto community and establishing itself as a well-known NFT project. Following the launch of mfercoin, with the spontaneous support and dissemination from the community, it achieved a market cap of $200 million within 12 hours. Regarding the future of mfercoin, as stated by the mfers community, "1$mfer = 1$mfer".
