Full Show Notes:

Will Crypto Bounce Back Or Has The Bubble Burst?

Over the last nine months, we’ve seen significant price adjustments in the crypto space - including drops of almost 70% in the prices of some of the most widely followed assets like Bitcoin. Have these substantial reductions shown that the perceived promise of these technologies was hollow? Or is this just part of the normal ebb and flow of these asset prices? Well, Jeremy believes we’re going through a healthy contraction right now.

If you think about the evolution of emerging technologies, there’s always a hype cycle. Think about the internet and when the bubble burst. We went through a couple of years of unbearable winter. And during that winter is when the fraudsters and the crappy business models were flushed out. Jeremy believes that that’s the exact same thing happening right now. It’s painful, but it’s necessary.
