5 Worst Performing Cryptos To Avoid Post-Bitcoin Halving – CoinGape

5 Worst Performing Cryptos: Late Friday evening, Bitcoin underwent its fourth halving at block 840,000, reducing the mining reward from 6.25 to 3.125 new bitcoins per block. This process is scheduled approximately every four years to reduce the rate at which new bitcoins are generated, thereby controlling inflation and extending the currency’s longevity.  

As per the historical trend, the reduced supply and steady or increasing demand following the Halving event have typically triggered a significant uptrend in both Bitcoin and the broader altcoin market. 

However, despite the anticipated bullish trend following the halving, some altcoins may underperform, suggesting that investors carefully seek out better investment opportunities.

However, the renowned trader Alicharts highlights that despite the rollout of Bitcoin ETFs and the recent halving, public search interest in Bitcoin and cryptocurrency has not spiked, suggesting that the market could be in the early phases of a bull run. This subdued search interest might indicate untapped potential for growth in the crypto sector.
