Why Binance Believes That There Will Never Be 21,000,000 BTC

According to a recent article published by Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, on its official website, the crypto community is probably misinformed to believe that exactly 21 million is the total number of Bitcoin (BTC) that will ever exist.

Binance says due to rounding discrepancy, deduced from the fact that a Bitcoin is only divisible into 8 decimals, which makes it impossible to endlessly half the block reward, leaving the Bitcoin that would ever exist at 20,999,999.9796 BTC.

Binance Explains the Number 21 Million

Binance explained further that the number “21” is triangular in nature. And triangular numbers counts objects arranged in an equilateral triangle.

“21 in itself is a triangular number. Triangular numbers count objects arranged in an equilateral triangle and, as such, make computation easier and more efficient. On top of that, the mathematical explanation for “21 million” has been credited to Bitcoin’s deflationary “block halving” protocol that occurs every four years…”

The calculation credited to a user on StackExchange, as shared by Binance goes thus;

Calculate the number of blocks per four-year cycle:

6 blocks per hour

* 24 hours per day

* 365 days per year

* 4 years per cycle

= 210,240

~= 210,000

Sum all the block reward sizes:

50 + 25 + 12.5 + 6.25 + 3.125 + 1.5625 = 100

Multiply the two:

210,000 * 100 = 21 million.
