HOW DID PREVIOUS HALVINGS AFFECT THE PRICE OF BITCOIN?

As is shown on the chart above, the price of Bitcoin has risen over the long-term following the last two halving events. However, it is difficult to state with certainty that these increases in price were directly attributable to halving events or due to other factors.

The economics of supply and demand, however, remain in effect. Once the halving event occurs, there will be a decrease in the supply of bitcoin left to mine. Therefore, should demand remain constant or grow for Bitcoin, economic principles should indicate a rise in the price of BTC/USD.
