The bitcoin Squeeze
Original research piece by Lightning Capital’s Charles Hwang. Many people who have held bitcoin for a long time have been through several boom and bust cycles. Recently, many folks have noticed a pattern to these cycles linked to the bitcoin halving event that happens every 210,000 blocks or approximately every four years. Historically, these halving events have not been properly priced into the market, thus causing a large bull run; followed by a bear market. This bullishness is supported through fundamental factors that cause a downward shift in the supply of bitcoin while historically, there is a possibility of an increasing demand for it. If this is true, this ultimately could lead to a price surge and eventually correct back to a new equilibrium price.

Norway's Kryptografen on Lightning Capital's Bitcoin Halving Research
In May 2020, the planned halving of "mining rewards" in the Bitcoin chain will take place. This means that the number of new bitcoin mined falls from 657,000 per year, to 328,500. According to a hedge fund manager, this could lead to the bitcoin price rising to between $ 20,000 and $ 50,000 already next year.
