The conditions in the crypto market are not the best. The prices still decreasing since December 2017. However, this is not the reason for panic, at least not about bitcoin. As long as bitcoin is the oldest cryptocurrency, it has experienced several large crashes. Bitcoin’s longest correction lasted for 411 days with 87% loss of value. And back in April 2013 bitcoin lost 83% just in 3 days. However, notice that bitcoin recovered each time. So this is not the end, just another long correction. It’s not time to sell off coins, quite in the opposite – it’s time to buy them.I believe in the potential, which certain coins can realize in the future. Probably not all altcoins will survive this bearish market.
