If you are reading this post, congratulations. You have survived the 2022 bear market! Happy new year to you.
We may be far from another bull run, however after so much FUD the market is bound to bounce back at some point this year or the next. After significant dips, the cryptocurrency market tends to lateralize. And that’s what I expect for a good part of 2023 unless we see another dip caused by macroeconomic conditions.
It is just a matter of time, and patience is key during these times.
On another note, after the bear market is over you will realize how many projects you felt had substance during the bull run simply disappeared. An ecosystem that expands with every bull run, and shrinks every bear run. The rate of survival is low so pick your gems wisely.
For me, it is all about fundamentals. The fundamentals are security, scalability, reliability, and decentralization. How many cryptocurrencies have a good balance of them all? Not many actually!
In fact, in 2017 I invested in several altcoins, where many were simply a concept, without a product. They seemed like great value propositions on paper but not in the real world. That’s one of the reasons why I do not diversify much. I lost money on most and I stick with value propositions that have survived the market long enough: One example: Bitcoin
