Halving and Bitcon price: there might be a hard fork problem

Halving and Bitcon price: there might be a hard fork problem

bitcoin_price_hard_fork_problem
Bitcoin price continues to rise during this week, nearing the amount of $600.
In fact, bitcoin established a new positive trend during the past week, growing fast and surpassing $580 the last weekend.
Currently the Bitcoin price is $586, the highest price since August 10th, 2014, when it reached $589.

Bitcoin Price is growing

Previously we offered several reasons for this Bitcoin jump, as in the Chinese Domain article you can read here.
Data from the yuan/bitcoin market shows that the price reached a high of ¥3,866.11 ($589) there, so it would probably keep growing or remain stable. 
Other experts in the bitcoin sector expressed different ideas, concerned about the problem that halving could lead to. 

Hard Fork Problem

Recently we also read about the hard fork problem caused by the halving of the reward for miners.
In fact, when the halving will occur, the miner reward for new blocks will be lower (from 25 BTC to 12,5), but their expenses for electricity and hardware will remain the same, so their profits will drop. 
This could generate a hard fork problem, as miners could leave the Bitcoin core Blockchain to work on other chain to increase their profits again. 

In the meantime, in fact, the ethereum price for example surged 50% in a week.
