Countdown to BTC Halving | Golden Finance Mining Earnings Report: According to Jinse Finance, according to data from the OKEx mining pool, the next BTC halving date is expected to be May 15, 2020, and there are still 41 days left before today. The current block height of BTC is 624151, and the block height of the next halving is 630000.

Today's network computing power is about 103.08EH/s, the network difficulty is about 13.91T, and the next difficulty is predicted to be 12.98T (-6.71%). There are still 5 days left before the adjustment. Today's BTC income: 0.00001808BTC/T/day. [2020/4/3]

"Yes, this 15,000 BTC transfer transaction was operated by Bitfinex. We recharged the hot wallet, and the remaining bitcoins were returned to the original address."

The record for the highest Bitcoin transfer transaction has been broken

In terms of dollar value, the 15,000 BTC transferred by Bitfinex is the most valuable transfer transaction in Bitcoin history - the last Bitcoin transfer transaction worth more than $1 billion occurred on September 6, 2019, according to Transaction records show that the number of bitcoins transferred at that time was 94,504 BTC, worth about $1.018 billion, but the handling fee was as high as $700. In contrast, the handling fee for this transfer is obviously much lower.

However, in terms of the number of bitcoins transferred, neither of these transactions is the largest bitcoin transaction. The single largest number of Bitcoin transfers occurred on November 16, 2011, when 500,000 BTC were transferred. However, the transaction was valued at only US$1.32 million in US dollars at the time. If the transaction took place today, the estimated transaction amount would be US$3.5 billion.
