What Can Cause A Crypto Crash?
Any macro and microeconomic events, such as exchange crashes, can significantly affect crypto prices. They can also slip by the slightest change in the market, affecting investors’ confidence in risky assets.
This year has been quite bad for the cryptos, where all the major cryptocurrencies have had a long-term downfall. In the case of FTX, the impact was bigger in the market. The crash affected FTX and bigger currencies such as Solana and Ethereum.
This is not the first time when the crypto market crashed. The crypto market crashed multiple times. For e.g. Bitcoin went below $3,500 in December 2018. It’s all-time high was in November 2021, about $69000, and it’s more than 75%.
What are the risks of buying crypto?
When the crypto market crashes, buying crypto is not a good sign. Some are intrigued by the crypto market and think it’s a good time to buy crypto at low prices. While the prices can recover as in the past, it can also take months.
Conditions could also get worse instead of getting better. Following past crashes, the market could take some time to recover.
Unlike the traditional market, Crypto markets don’t break circuits when the prices swing too early. The prices could slip much faster than the traditional assets.
As a rule of thumb, investors shouldn’t invest only in one asset. Instead, they mixed portfolios to reduce the risks.
As with any other market, crypto is associated with high price swings. Even though the market experienced big upswings this year, reversions are also commonplace. We have experienced similar reversions many times in the past. If you are an investor, you have the right to think about the future of cryptocurrencies. As a rule of thumb, you should only invest what you can afford to lose.
