Among the dozens of topics covered during the AIBC Europe Summit, a lot of attention was unsurprisingly attributed to the recent turmoil in the crypto/blockchain world. In a keynote, high-end influencer and crypto and NFT consultant Crypto Megan shared her insights on everything contemporary related to the continued growth of the crypto space in the face of the FTX fiasco and the ongoing bear market.
Believing in the Crypto Space
With doubt in the Crypto Space presently spreading like wildfire, Megan opened her keynote with a powerful argument, linking Crypto as an innovative technology to the advent of the WWW. “Not seeing the potential for Crypto is like saying the web is only good for porn in the 90s. By now, the internet has touched every aspect of human life. And so will Crypto.”
Bear markets are not a sign that x is dead, nor a reason to despair. They are a natural part of any market cycle. The mentality of long-term investment has always been crucial to the central values and infrastructure of Blockchain and Crypto technologies. Looking at the current bear market with an open mind, this is perhaps the best opportunity for investments. Furthermore, investors are going to get to prepare for the next bull run. “Investing is much like chess. Making those moves which become meaningful and game-changing down the line. Staying ahead of the curve.”
Revolutions have never been easy. The road can get bumpy. What’s important is that we remain relentless in our conviction towards developing the Crypto Space. – Megan Nilsson
Recalling the recent FTX catastrophe, Megan remarked how FTX are not solely responsible for the losses suffered by investors. “People are putting too much faith in so-called ‘thought leaders’ and their reputations, when it should be on the algorithm.” Education in the space points to the dispersion of the idea that the big Crypto names are immune to bankruptcy and failure.
The major Crypto exchanges not being backed up by fiat is also a worrying issue. If stable coins are regulated 1:1 to the dollar, the floodgates are bound to open up, bringing in trillions of dollars in smart money investments. “Patience is once again the key. Impatient money has always found itself transferred to patient money anyway.”
Finally, Crypto Megan reasserted her belief in women driving the next Crypto bull cycle. Since the beginning of Blockchain and Crypto, a variety of women have been carrying the development of the emerging technologies. It will be no different in the upcoming months and years.
