What is a Bitcoin halving?
For miners, obviously, the block reward is going to be smaller, but for the rest of us, the future is uncertain despite the historical facts. If the interest in Bitcoin stays the same, and the scarcity greater, the natural thing would be for the price of the asset to increase.

Hackernoon also brings a similar forecast as the outlets mentioned above. However, this is a wee bit more optimistic as they claim that BTC could also see a significant rise in 2020.

NewsBTC dismantles the idea that halving can affect the price of Bitcoin directly like other outlets state. Instead, they are looking at a wider perspective. In order for BTC to reach $100,000 after the halving, a lot of things have to come to pass, NewsBTC claims.
However, fueled by the dry statistics, Bitcoin’s market capitalization could reach $1 trillion, which would, in turn, push the price towards $55,00 in 2020.
