The Bitcoin Halving is only 12 days away! And the mood is getting bullish!
The Halving is expected to occur around May 12th at 8 pm AEST (Perfect time for a party if not for Corona)! The block time being variable means the exact time could still change.
Google Trends shows searches for the halving increased ten-fold.
Past Bitcoin Halvings have historically resulted in bull runs in the months following.
As of this time, the price rose 28% for the month and is still climbing. It is now at the same level as before the Corona shutdowns.
In-fact Bitcoin briefly reached a new all-time high in Argentinians Pesos. That's of-course partially a function of the Peso going down.
