DASH, a payments-focused peer-to-peer cryptocurrency forked out of the Bitcoin source code, has just completed its halving.

The halving was completed at block height 1,892,161, and the current block reward is 2.3097 DASH. On the Dash blockchain, the block reward for miners is halved about every 840,000 blocks, or every four years.

The halving event is important for DASH because it affects how many new coins are issued, which affects the dynamics of supply and demand for the cryptocurrency.

According to OKLINK, the next Litecoin halving event will take place in around 40 days, while the BTC halving will take place in 308 days.
