Bitcoin’s tumbled to a 15-month low. Ethereum is circling the drain. Despite announcements of a Swiss ETP, more regulated bitcoin futures in Q1, a German stock exchange launching a crypto platform, and institutional investors getting in, the market keeps on hemorrhaging. Is it time to jump ship? Cut your losses and get out while there’s something to get out with? Is this the end of crypto?
The short answer to that would be, no one knows. It’s possible, of course. Apart from miniature countries floating in the Mediterranean with reputations for accepting money from questionable sources, regulators haven’t been welcoming.
The ICO model is all but dead. The scaling headache is now a constant migraine, and Mark Zuckerberg has a net worth to rival the market cap of Bitcoin. Even those inside the industry like Barry Silbert are starting to sound positively glum.
We've seen half a dozen fundraising deals fall apart over the past month after the lead pulled out. All is not well in crypto VC investor land
Good time to remind founders that a signed term sheet does not equal cash in the bank

Die-Hard Crypto Fans Keep the Faith
Yet, here we still are. We may be losing money, but there are plenty of us not losing faith. Pomp remains bullish to the end (although, he’d look a little silly if he didn’t).
When crypto prices are down, the naysayers take a victory lap.
They yell “told you so!” over and over again. Their enthusiasm will be short lived though.
History will be unkind to those who bet against technology.

And there are plenty of others still flying the flag for the longevity of crypto, including the likes of Nasdaq and Bakkt.
Is This the End of Crypto?
Erik Voorhees once told me you can’t change the world in a smooth predictable curve. And he’s certainly seen his share of ups and downs in this space.
What this continued bear market has shown if anything is that the blockchain revolution is going to take longer than we thought. The bear market may not be over any time soon, but the heart of crypto is still beating and it will outlast the premature victory dances.
You don’t need to post pessimist post of this kind to to think crypto is dead. In the contrary, the rebound will be amazing and in a couple of years everyone will use crypto!
The revolution still there and we are moving toward it!
I seen this nonsense so many times over the years. I sold 2000 Dash at under a quarter after reading some expert’s flawed analysis . With millions joining daily, the big boys and wall street know their bailouts and fees even when losing client’s investments are coming to an end. Crypto is the revolution and we need to build our community from within. Bitcoin at 3k is amazing for those of us who lived through the earliest “corrections”
This is another manipulation attempt driven by greed. No you are not going to be buying your coins cheaper.I just laugh at this kind of news. Bull market just starting I can tell already 🙂 Don’t miss out the train 🙂 just saying
We can only hope!
No more hoping bro. We need to bounce already. Stop reading this crooks. All they do manipulative news.This guy is one of them.Next target this next Target,bitcoin dying,bottomless spiral, under that bottom not even near. As they can see the future from magical sphere.Or can they?
I agree with you that nobody really knows what will happen in the future. You should read our latest article: https://nulltx.com/bitcoin-xrp-ethereum-price-in-the-green-litecoin-and-bitcoinsv-leading-with-8-gains/

Hi Fellas! Cryptocurrency Trading is the Forex (Foreign Exchange) of cryptocurrencies. This means, you are able to trade bitcoin and altcoins normally for USD, GBP and EUR. Cryptocurrency Trading is an alternative way to get involved in the Crypto-World. It doesn’t require mining hardware nor investing in bitcoin hyips or bitcoin cloud mining which is said to have a high level of risk involved. Crypto trading is now seen as a good opportunity to make good money. Many coins quadruple their value in less than a week when a good strategy is implemented. I have been trading it for close to 2 years now and I’ve made about 150K due to the fact that I invested wisely and now my wife have also joined the Crypto-World with me.

All these posts are pointless if you aren’t actually making money via cryptocurrency. Don’t be a fan of cryptocurrency, be at the forefront of it. It does not matter whether the market is down or not, everyone can make a great profit. You just have to know what you’re doing and have the knowledge/tool to make money trading cryptos. Thank God I met Mr Parker. He is the best when it comes to trading cryptocurrency and his strategy is crazy. He is the reason behind me having thousands of dollars every month. Take a bite, his email is kramerp04@ gmail. com
