A milestone in Bitcoin’s history, the block reward will be halved for the second time today. Where the first “halving” cut the mining reward from 50 bitcoins to 25, for the next four years miners will only earn 12.5 bitcoins for each block they find - not counting mining fees.

Bitcoin Magazine took a look at how the industry has grown and matured over the last 4 years.
