Analysts are of opinion that, “Cryptocurrencies might be having a bad year, but zoom out, and they’re doing just fine. Four years from now, some of the current crop will likely have died, but if history is anything to go on, the best of them could be worth multiples more.”
Thomas Lee in his comment about the selling of trend states, “Demonstrate the foolishness of writing off cryptocurrencies just because they’ve been battered for a few months.”
