Progress is not linear. Dr Maria Montessori was speaking of children’s education when she said this in 1946. But she may as well have been speaking of investments—no index of note has moved in a straight line, after all.
This is especially true for crypto. An emerging asset class, crypto has grown exponentially in the decade or so of its existence, but this overarching growth story is made of many small ascends and tumbles.
As we write this, the crypto market is on one such tumble, falling hand-in-hand with traditional assets as inflation threw a wrench into the global economic machine. Green candles have given way to the dreaded reds.
So we turned to investors inside CoinSwitch to understand how they are handling the bear market. (In case you didn’t know, most of us here at CoinSwitch are crypto investors ourselves)
We went around the room to see if it is all “gloom and doom” as newspaper headlines like to shout, or, like a good student of markets, they see progress as non-linear.
