The above chart states that it took 3935 days to mine 18 million Bitcoin. But, before then, the asset has hit 18 million on-chain transactions, hit a market cap of the same volume, reached $18 million in mining fees, and much more. The list states the following and how many days it took to hit the milestone:
And then, of course, the final stat of 3935 days to mine 18 million Bitcoin.
That said, it is widely known that there is only to be 21 million Bitcoin, meaning that there are just three million left to be put into circulation via mining. Many speculate what will happen on the path to mining the final Bitcoin, considering that the asset’s next halvening is to happen soon, as BeInCrypto has previously reported.
That’s not to mention the fact that mining difficulty will only increase, meaning that miners will be putting in more work with less reward, which is already happening to altcoin networks across the crypto-sphere, as BeInCrypto has also previously reported.
What do you think about these statistics? Will miners continue participating in the Bitcoin network after the halvening? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
