Bitmain’s co-founder: halving can lead to bitcoin’s drop in price
Jihan Wu, co-founder and ex-CEO of Bitmain, is “pessimistic” about the prospect of a price surge after the halving in May 2020. According to him, people started to bet on the price growth in advance, and due to that the market can show the opposite effect.
Wu also pointed to Litecoin, that plunged two-fold after its halving in August this year.
