Bitcoin Supply is Not Unlimited

Often aiding bitcoin to mark its superiority over fiat is the fact that only 21 million bitcoin will be ever created. This trait ensures that unlike fiat that is created out of thin air and can be printed as much as needed, bitcoin is not destructed by the hands of inflation. Every four year since its inception, the number of bitcoins created is halved. Until now, about 17 million bitcoins have been created so investors must grab their shares before newly created bitcoins become unavailable and only bitcoins in circulation are investors’ last hope.

Only 636,813 more bitcoin will be mined before the next halvening.

Think that leaves plenty for you?

Think again.@CashApp is buying 10% of it.@GrayscaleInvest is buying 21% of it.
