When Litecoin blockchain was launched in 2011, its mining block reward was 50 LTC. After 3 Litecoin halving events, its block reward came down to 6.25 LTC and block height reached 2,520,000.
Halving events in blockchain networks are an intelligent way of reducing the token supply and increasing the value over time. Satoshi Nakamoto introduced the concept of Halving with Bitcoin blockchain. Being a hard fork of Bitcoin, Litecoin also shares most of its features, including the halving event. While the total supply of Bitcoin is 21 million, Litecoin’s token supply is 84 million. The halving event plays a crucial role in achieving this limited token supply. And, unlike fiat currencies, Litecoin can avoid inflation over the long run by reducing the supply and increasing the value when demand rises.
