I have a proposal for a new celebration called "Halving Day".

The celebration would coincide with the Bitcoin block halving that occurs once every 4 years.  Given the random nature of blocks being found, the day cannot be set until probably a few months before the actual day.

The purpose of the celebration is to simply get together with fellow bitcoiners and celebrate this wonderful invention called Bitcoin.  I would like to see large organised events similar in nature to what we see for New Years celebrations around the world.

Similar to New Years, there could be a live broadcast on a big screen (see bitcoinclock.com) or loud speaker that announces the first halved block in realtime for a bit of arbitrary back slapping and high five'ing.

Other activities could be combined into the celebrations, maybe charity fund raises or company announcements or awards ceremonies..

If nothing else, even just printing some posters saying "happy halving day", or wishing strangers in the street a "happy halving day".

Eventually I would like to see this event become as popular as other 4 year events like the Olympics and World Cup.

So lets get ready to celebrate the inaugural Halving Day in 6 weeks time on the 30-Nov-2012.

Happy halving day!

We've been thinking about this for a while, the proper event for the occasion is of course a block party.

In fact the exact date cannot be set until 4 days before the event. (Or more precisely, 4 days before the event you have a 24-hour window for when the event is 99.7% likely to occur, and a 16-hour window for 95.5%.)

When block 209999 is found the countdown starts: "600, 600, 600, 600, ... Happy block year!"

True, and when he will finally get caught, sold out by one one of his closets followers for 30 BTC and get killed on a electric chair, this shall be the new symbol of our religion.



Of course there will always be the one that believe it wasn't the real Satoshi and his return has yet to come.

And the ones believing he got resurrected and ascented into the blockchain, but that are just crazy people.

Sometimes I fancy that Satoshi must have been a visitor from the future, a Prometheus bringing us mere mortals the secret of fire, thus enabling the further progress of civilization.

The Great Halving Bug always tries to ruin the celebration, but gets stomped by the Great Shoe of Reputation.

There will be chocolate-coin-filled bug piñatas for the children and shoe-on-a-sticks to beat them with.

Except math and hard-coded rules are clear and easy to read up by anyone.
Actually.. I don't know! heh

I guess you meant block number 210000 or 210001?

Or:
Do we celebrate the last 50 BTC block, or the first 25 BTC block?
Whatever, I stick to the number with the many zeroes. Bitcoiners like zeroes! :-)

Block 0 had 50, but they weren't spendable, correct? So 210000 will have 25 reward.

The point when the last 50 BTC block is mined is the point at which the game changes, IMO.  From that moment onwards all miners are working for a lower potential reward, regardless of exactly when the first 25 BTC is found.

For me, it's not a celebration unless the Bitcoin price goes up when the block reward drops. My guess is it will go up for a bit and then back down as people that have invested start selling.

Why people would start selling after the block reward drops? Does bitcoin will be less reliable? NO.

Yes, for a short period of time but I think things will move on with the increasing prices due to the halving.

Does anyone has a good guess when it will happen? If it's 6 blocks / hour it should be the 29th in the morning (UTC).

Wed Nov 28th 7pm ET!

Whenever it is we're ha(l)ving a party at Seals.

2012 11 28 would be cool as it's the full moon for extra emotional intensity & partying, it's also a penumbral lunar eclipse & they don't just happen every day ~ good stuff, it's also my birthday ftw Smiley

Hey how accurate is this halving day? I could change by a day or two based on total network speed, right?

Correct.

I believe early on the 29th is if we get 10 minute blocks, but we've actually been getting like 9.6 or something for a while and that would put it earlier.

You can always get the latest ETA at bitcoinclock.com. It says 11/29, but it assumes 10 minute blocks. It's starting to look like 11/28 in the evening. If ASICs come online before then it will probably be much sooner than that.

Yeah try UTC or write GMT+/-N

As for when ... 3 weeks ...

This diff is currently only running 1.9% fast. (with very close to 4.5days to go at 1.9%)

Then 2 weeks with anywhere from -2% to 10% adjustment on that
(well that's what I guess - and in that range my guess is 4%) or between 342.7 hrs and 302.4 hrs or 4% = 322.6 hrs

Then another 337 blocks after that ... I'll go the same range -2% to 10% (and guess 4%) so between 57.3 and 56.6 hrs or 4% = 53.9 hrs

So on those figures - with it now 8-Nov 05:15 UTC (oh another block just came in I'll ignore it Tongue)

I get my guess of: between 29 Nov 9:15 UTC (-2%)  and  27 Nov 16:15 UTC (10%)
Or my 4% guess = 28 Nov 9:45 UTC (4%)

Yup. Not a currency. A religion.

Bitcoin is great and Satoshi is his prophet.

No, Satoshi is the messiah whose return is eagerly awaited.

True, and when he will finally get caught, sold out by one one of his closets followers for 30 BTC and get killed on a electric chair, this shall be the new symbol of our religion.

[image excluded]

Of course there will always be the one that believe it wasn't the real Satoshi and his return has yet to come.

And the ones believing he got resurrected and ascented into the blockchain, but that are just crazy people.

That's so fxxxxxx funny! Smiley

Sorry about my ignorance, but how exactly do we determine when it happens ?

I take it is on a set block number ? So if it's block n that's the deal, then we sit with the champagne glasses at n-1 and just wait for n, and once n comes we can all say cheers and start jumping, is that right ?

Yes.  Block 210,000 is the first block of the halved reward. The time it will be produced looks like 11/28, or possibly 11/27. Since the time to produce a block is random (but is usually close to 10 minutes), a more exact time cannot be predicted at this point.

Will you be able to have a beer in between each block? How will you divide the "10 minutes", drink it all as fast as possible, or be slow and hope you have those 10 mins? I see some fun block-games coming! :-)

I get my guess of: between 29 Nov 9:15 UTC (-2%)  and  27 Nov 16:15 UTC (10%)
Or my 4% guess = 28 Nov 9:45 UTC (4%)

Smiley
With about 10 days to go Smiley

Amusing that the last diff did actually finish on 1.9%

So based on it now being 18-Nov 21:00 UTC (though it's tomorrow here Smiley)

Current Difficulty of the 870 blocks so far in this last difficulty change before halving is -1.4% ... still JUST inside my rather large -2% to 10% range
(Yeah looks like it won't be anywhere near 10% but I'll leave that as the top value anyway)

However, I'll drop my 4% guess now down to 2% for the remainder of this difficulty + the 337 blocks until halving.

So again with the range -2% to 10% and 1146 blocks until the last diff change:
Between 194.8 and 171.9 hours (or 2% = 187.2 hrs)

Then another 337 blocks after that ... -2% to 10% (and now guess 2%):
so between 57.3 and 50.6 hrs (or 2% = 55.0 hrs)

So again based on it being 18-Nov 21:00 UTC and block 208517
So between 29-Nov 09:06 UTC (-2%) and 28-Nov 03:30 UTC (10%)
Or my new 2% guess 28-Nov 23:12 UTC

Edit: hmm - that 337 range is wrong, 10% is 50.6 (I typed 56.6) - never noticed the mistake before either - corrected now.
That meant the 10% is 28-Nov 03:30 UTC (not 28-Nov 09:30 UTC)

So anyone know why bitcoinwatch and bitcoincharts are saying next difficulty change at 209,664 blocks ... I thought the halving and next difficulty change co-incided, i.e. 210,000?

http://www.bitcoinwatch.com/

http://bitcoincharts.com/markets/

EDIT: evidently they don't coincide ... my mistake, just had always assumed they would ... the next difficulty change will be the 104th and the block reward halving will occur 336 blocks after that change and 1680 blocks before the 105th difficulty change ... as you were, no need to panic.  Wink

I've just started keeping track so I don't have many data points yet but I have a simple approximation based on current block and time between blocks as reported on blockchain.info.

So far my estimate falls in a six hour window on the 28th between 14:30 and 20:30 UTC.

umm, simple approx. says about 6 days, 16.6 hours from nowish ... so 2100 28.11.12 UTC ... roughly speaking?

Time to do one last guess? Smiley

With 127 blocks to go until the last diff change - difficulkty is showing 1.16% - not majorly different to my 2% guess - but still a bit lower.

Now lets say it is 25-Nov 17:45 now

At 1.2% that will put the last difficulty change (before halving) at 20.9 hours from now or roughly 20hrs 55 minutes.

Or 26-Nov 14:40 for the next diff change

Then add another 337 blocks at between -2% and 10% (or using the current diff value of 1.2%)

That gives between 50.6 and 57.3 hours after that - or between 28-Nov 17:16 and 28-Nov 23:58

But using the 1.2% number we get: 28-Nov 22:10

Hmm all my numbers are on the 28th now (UTC) Smiley

I'm betting it will actually drop, quite markedly too. Reasoning being a "buy the rumour, sell the news" effect. With so much speculative money in bitcoin a good portion has come in to profit from the "halving" phenomena. This money will take profits after the halving (I think they are already doing this for the last few days) .... I'm expecting to drop more and probably it will be a while before the long term effect of the decreased inflation works its way through to the supply/demand equation.

Heh difficulty for the last change was 2.08% - matched my guess (2%) surprisingly enough, so I should have used it for the last calculation rather than the reported (incomplete) value at the time of 1.2% Tongue

Anyway with it simply counting down blocks and no more changes - currently it's 116
27-Nov 23:20 UTC now

116 at 10 minutes is of course 19hrs 20min

-2% is 19hrs 43min

+10% is 17hrs 24min

So that's now a 2.33 hour range

and at a 2% guess thats: 18hrs 57min to go or 28-Nov 18:17 UTC

Looks like my 6 week rough estimate of 30th November (AEST) was pretty close, its now looking like 29th @ 6:30am (AEST).

So had any big party been organised for the 30th with say a 2 day buffer either side would have been sufficient.

Tough to organise a kick-ass party for 6:30am though.. lol

Block rate has been going wild for a while Smiley
It's at 5% at the moment.
I saw 17 in 95 minutes 2.5 hours ago

But I was thinking that the higher that get the better!
42 left to go now - but the change of hte hash rate dropping after 1/2 is quite high and it's only 13% into the difficulty change
So that remaining 87% could possibly take a while ...

Anyway it's now 28-Nov 10:00UTC

+42 at 2% (yeah I'll stick with 2% anyway even though it looks like it'll be wrong Tongue)
Is 6hrs 52min or 28-Nov 16:52 UTC - already more than hour earlier than my last guess.

and if it stays around 5% it'll be 6hrs 39min - so 28-Nov 16:39 UTC

10% will be 6hrs 18min or 28-Nov 16:18 UTC

So anyway - with it this close it's almost certainly 28-Nov 16:NN UTC for some value NN Smiley

Block rate has been going wild for a while Smiley
It's at 5% at the moment.
I saw 17 in 95 minutes 2.5 hours ago

But I was thinking that the higher that get the better!
42 left to go now - but the change of hte hash rate dropping after 1/2 is quite high and it's only 13% into the difficulty change
So that remaining 87% could possibly take a while ...

Anyway it's now 28-Nov 10:00UTC

+42 at 2% (yeah I'll stick with 2% anyway even though it looks like it'll be wrong Tongue)
Is 6hrs 52min or 28-Nov 16:52 UTC - already more than hour earlier than my last guess.

and if it stays around 5% it'll be 6hrs 39min - so 28-Nov 16:39 UTC

10% will be 6hrs 18min or 28-Nov 16:18 UTC

So anyway - with it this close it's almost certainly 28-Nov 16:NN UTC for some value NN Smiley

Countdown today is the day...whioeeeeee  ...o no my incom halves today happy or sad but what ever it is a milestone  Shocked

I am also intrested to see how many hashes will get plugged out after today  Cry

Little or big, some miners will shutdown OR move to other coins.

Oooh. That is pretty awesome timing but I'm sure it only holds true in one place. Can someone find out where that happens at the moment the blocks halve? I hope it's not off the coast of Africa in the Null Triangle (0.0.0.0)....

No, 2. The instant that 209,999 is found is when things change. Waiting for 210,000 is like celebrating New Year at the end of January 1st.

Yes. Before 209,999 all miners are competing for 50 BTC, after it they're competing for 25 BTC.

It's pretty significant... we have been doing this for years now on 50 BTC.  This will look like a massive reward when it's at 25.. 12.5.. etc.  These will be the "old days".

The suspense is if the new block 210000 will actually get 25btc reward or if the whole system falls over..
The code is very simple, highly unlikely to be buggy. Smiley

Code:
    // Subsidy is cut in half every 210000 blocks, which will occur approximately every 4 years
    nSubsidy >>= (nHeight / 210000);

It's two parts... 1) it stinks, we like big rewards but 2) this project is actually living on and upholding the original design.

Nah, its right, means shift by x (in our case by one) which equals divide by 2^x. (I assume, I never read the code.)

Subsidy is shifted right by number of times the height is over 210000.

Can someone explain me why did block 209998 get only 10 transactions when it had time for 23 minutes? And block 209999 543 transactions in just one minute?

Was that done on purpose by the miners, so that as many transactions as possible are on the famous "last" block?

You know, it's actually really fun to think that the BTC community finally has something positive to talk about and be excited over as opposed to the normal ponzi shiz.

So after today its back to ponzi for 4 years?
