After the Bitcoin price declined from slightly under $11,000 and lost over a thousand dollars within a few hours recently, it has so far recovered to the level of $8,334 and has been holding around that point, as per CoinMarketCap.

Many optimists are expecting the BTC price to surge soon and at least regain the ATH achieved in late 2017.

However, some crypto traders believe that the bears are about to gain control of the Bitcoin market.

Jihan Wu doubts the halving will make BTC price spike

As per a recent Forbes article, the founder of the Bitmain mining giant, Jihan Wu, does not believe that the BTC halving expected in May 2020 will have a bullish effect on the BTC price.

Many crypto experts and ordinary ‘hodlers’ strongly believe that the cut down of miners’ rewards will make BTC more scarce and thus would let its price soar.

Jihan Wu says that if the BTC price does not pump after the halvening, miners will have to ‘balance efficiency and computing power”.
