Cryptos are volatile
Yes, cryptocurrencies are very volatile and not appropriate for all investors. It’s always clever to not put all your eggs in one basket but to diversify your crypto investments and thus diversify your risk. Last but not least you should only invest money into the crypto market you can afford to lose and always think of the worst case possible: If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!
Now Bitcoin is known worldwide
Before the the heavy price ralley in 2017 there were only a few nerds worldwide who knew about cryptocurrencies. Yes, they always believed in the possibilities of this new form of payment and investment but nobody believed them. They were mocked as stupid nerds and coneheads. After the tremendous price ralley in 2017, where the bitcoin hit the 25k Limit, the whole thing changend. Suddenly everybody was talking about bitcoins, blockchain technology and other cryptocurrencies. Ever since the Bitcoin and other cryptos are in consolidation mode, but they haven’t vanished from planet earth. In reality they are being used by a large and growing number of people for digital payments. They don’t care about regulations and new laws.
A stable currency mustn’t be volatile
Although it is understandable that the crypto community complains about the crypto collapse it is a good sign for the crypto market on the whole. Why? A stable currency mustn’t be volatile. Imagine the EURUSD would be one day at 1,10 and the other day at 4,50. The whole world economy would be in turmoil, such a currency would be absolutely inapt. Have a look at countries with a volatile currency, such as venezuela, and then look at their condition. It’s a nightmare.
Consolidation was healthy and necessary
If the bitcoin and/or other cryptocurrencies shall be considered as a serious world currency the price range has to be fixed. If we never see the bitcoin hitting the 25k again this is a good sign for the crypto market on the whole and a good sign that the crpytos are being accepted and apte as a real currency.
