First and foremost, a very Happy New Year to all of you! Qtum hopes that you and your family had a fruitful 2021, and may 2022 give you even more joy than ever before. Now, as we wrap up December, it is impossible to start with anything other than our first halving!
On December 1, 2021, at block number 1,427,004, Qtum went through its first-ever halving. Satoshi Nakamoto introduced "halving" to control BTC supply flowing into circulation. Following the halving, the block reward for Qtum dropped from 1.0 QTUM (+ fees and gas) to 0.5 QTUM. This story was covered by multiple media publications like Bloomberg, MarketWatch, and Nasdaq.
