The article discusses the upcoming bitcoin halving and the opportunities it presents for investors in mining companies. It explains the mining process and how miners are compensated with new bitcoins. The halving serves to slow down inflation and make existing bitcoins more scarce. The article also mentions the evolution of mining into a big business with high costs and multinational corporations involved. It highlights the positive impact of past halvings on the price of bitcoin. However, it cautions that mining profitability is currently at an all-time low and the halving will occur during a period of heightened interest rates, which may require miners to cut costs and potentially dilute shareholders to raise capital.
