14 million coins here we come. Nobody notices in the media because people don't really know about the block reward schedule. It's too technical for most people, despite the fact that the having is such a major economic event. Their loss. Wild parties are brewing on the streets... the countdown has begun... 17 blocks remaining.

Remember the bitcoin reaches $1000 party in Germany? Maybe we should have a halving party instead. It can be more or less extravagant depending on the price of the coin at the time. Wink

Well, the halving isn't for another year so. . .

Why not have a 2/3 party?

There aren't enough tech parties out there.

I had a Windows 7 party when it launched. It was a wonderful event that everyone will remember for the rest of their lives. I can't wait for Windows 10. All my friends keep badgering me. We'll check Windows 10 out, do some cake farting and then have a gang bang.

And wasn't that party if it stayed above $1000 for an entire month? I guess it hasn't happened yet.

350,000 blocks... certainly an achievement. Quite an achievement too. Scary to think that bitcoin has been around for six-seven years though and already two thirds of the coins are in circulation, with only the final third ready to be released over the next 125 years.

I think that mining will start running obsolete by 2018 or less. Either the price has to increase, or we have 1w/PH. Otherwise, there will be no one mining those smaller fragments of bitcoin.

i see people always say one of bitcoin its main advantage is a low fee structure. but how will this still be the case once there is no more btc left to mine which means that the fees must go up significantly if price isn't high enough.

The theory is that values and transaction volumes will be considerably higher than they are now. I guess we'll need to assume there'll also be a different generation of machinery that doesn't require constant updating and tons of electricity and cooling.

Well, we may have more efficient nodes which is when it doesn't really matter. You could wake up 3 years from now with a portable node and you've made over 10 btc through fees.

People are more dumb than ever. There is nothing technical about the supply. It's like having 2 apples and adding 5 more in 10 days. Quite simple actually. Looks like 12 more blocks to go. We're going to reach it very soon, although I'll be sleeping by then.
We definitely should make something big for the halving. The question is what and where?

People are more dumb than ever. There is nothing technical about the supply.

We are the evolution (of the society).
We trust the job of the ledger.
We reward miner for the job.
We will win at the end (not so far ... now).

Block 350,000 confirmed.  14,000,000 Bitcoins of the total 21,000,000 that will ever exist have now been mined.  Only 50% of the current Bitcoin supply can possibly ever be added to the market to dilute existing value.
