The bitcoin halving is just a few days away and the growing excitement is palpable. On this episode of The Breakdown, NLW argues the excitement is also legitimate, and looks at nine reasons why bitcoin has never been stronger going into one of its every-four-year issuance reductions:

  • Hashrate
  • Mining competition
  • Accessibility and Services 
  • Infrastructure
  • Institutional awareness and participation
  • Narrative relevance
  • Perceived and real resilience
