Today, on August 5, the reward for the Litecoin block for miners was halved.

Halving happened on block 1,680,000, changing the block reward from 25 LTC to 12.5 LTC. The next halving will take place in four years - tentatively on August 2, 2023, as a result of which the block reward will decrease to 6.25 LTC, making digital silver even more scarce.

According to litecoinblockhalf, 75% of the total Litecoin supply has been mined so far. The current inflation rate of the coin is 4.26%, and after four years it should drop to 1.80%.

Many investors were sure that the market had long “digested” the positive expectations in connection with a decrease in cryptocurrency emissions and expected either a sideways price movement or even a decrease in the LTC rate.
