Looking for your favorite sh*tcoin to moon again like back in January? Odds are that’s not going to happen — and Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin agrees.
According to Buterin, cryptocurrencies have previously been primarily about trying to gain recognition. Now, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who hasn’t at least heard of Bitcoin. They’ve also probably heard of ‘the blockchain.’ Heck, there’s even a decent chance they’ve heard of Ethereum. Unfortunately, there’s an even better chance they know someone who lost money buying at the top of last year’s bubble. Ethereum

When the Levee Breaks

The project which made Buterin famous — Ethereum — has (‘as the kids say’) gotten rekt. Reaching highs above $1,400, there was actually a time when many in the cryptocurrency industry believed Ethereum would top Bitcoin as the dominant cryptocurrency. Those sentiments seem silly now, as ‘The Flippening’ is likely never going to happen. Ethereum When it rains, it pours — and the levee has all but broken when it comes to sentiment surrounding Ethereum. The initial coin offering bubble has burst, putting the ICO factory’s future in jeopardy. Meanwhile, investors are getting impatient and some in the media are questioning whether or not ether (ETH) has any intrinsic value at all. Ethereum

Patience is a Virtue

Nevertheless, it’s important to remember that all cryptocurrencies are in the throes of a bear market — were fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) reigns supreme — so it may not be time to sound the alarm on Ethereum just yet. What do you think of Ethereum’s future in the cryptocurrency market? Do you think ether is still a valuable investment? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
