As always, the excitement around the approaching Bitcoin halving event has sparked widespread speculation about its possible influence on the cryptocurrency's value.

  • CryptoQuant's analysis suggests the upcoming Bitcoin halving on April 20 might not have the major price impact investors have historically anticipated, with the effect of these events diminishing over time.

  • The diminishing influence is attributed to the reduced importance of new Bitcoin issuance compared to the volume sold by long-term holders.

  • Telegram countered CertiK's claim, stating there's no compromise risk to its 800 million users from auto-downloads, as there have been no reports of related crypto wallet hacks.

  • Despite Telegram's rebuttal, CertiK holds firm that users should disable auto-downloads for enhanced safety on the platform.
