If you’ve been watching the crypto markets in the last week or so, you’ve likely noticed a huge sell-off across the board (can view charts @ Coinmarketcap); even yesterday saw another 26$ billion US dollars wiped off the crypto ledger. While that is disappointing to certain investors, it is overall an advantage to us all. If you are invested in bitcoin hopefully you invested for all the right reasons and understand that it is a newer tech and there will be ups and downs, as there is with anything in life. I hope that you didn’t invest just to make money, because if that is the case, then I am also gonna guess you bought at bad position timing, i.e. bought into the hype at the peak in the markets for fear of missing out (FOMO). No one can say what cryptos will do, but we can all say with certainty that cryptocurrencies are here to stay, for good. There are some hard lessons to be learned sometimes, and cryptocurrencies are no exception if anything cryptocurrencies are far underrated for the cutthroat winner takes all mentality of the crowds. So while we do see a massive market dip, powers are changing, energies are transforming and the nature of the beast is slowly becoming more clear. Let’s hope that the internal bickering and stupid mudslinging bullshit from opposing camps don’t splash mud in the eyes of the on watchers if I wasn’t invested and didn’t understand the technology – watching the ‘big heads’ (looking at xrp, bchabc, ESPECIALLY bchsv, btc, doge creator Jackson) in the game on social media is like watching children or political leaders fight; it’s very off-putting and does make questions arise, but in the meantime, Shine on you crazy diamonds; it’s all necessary.
