CKB (short for Nervos Network’s native token, Common Knowledge Base) halving refers to the event where the block reward for mining new CKB tokens is reduced by half.

This event is programmed to occur every 4 years, or every 33,600 blocks. The first halving of CKB occurred on November 16, 2021, at block height 6,720,000, which reduced the block reward from 128 CKB to 64 CKB per block.

Halving events are a common feature of many cryptocurrencies, and they are designed to control the rate at which new tokens are minted, thereby promoting scarcity and maintaining a steady inflation rate over time. The halving also has implications for miners, as it reduces the reward for mining new blocks and can make mining less profitable for some miners.


There are several places where you can buy cryptocurrencies, from centralized exchanges to decentralized exchanges. In its vast majority, a centralized exchange allows not only the purchase of the asset, but also its storage, whereas a decentralized exchange will require you to have an external wallet.
