You didn’t think being this early on revolutionary technology was going to be easy, did you? $1.16 billion liquidated in the past 24 hours. HODL isn’t just a phrase anymore, it has become a lifestyle. Being levered in any direction in this market will not end well. The amount of leverage in crypto asset trading is coming to a point of danger for the entire market. The quicker that retail learns to buy and hold crypto assets with real utility, the less pain they will feel on days like yesterday and today when their assets depreciated in value by 20%-40% if not more in some cases.
China has banned cryptocurrency for the second time this year. They also have been doing this annually since 2014. Here. This was reiterated again with the purpose of instilling fear in retail about crypto assets. Now you may ask “what about mining? They banned mining this time too.” This benefits Bitcoin in making it more decentralized as China has a majority of the mining power in the World for Bitcoin. This is not so much the case for Ethereum, where miners are more distributed and popularly seen throughout the US and Europe. However, the mining ban in China may hurt Bitcoin in the short term as the hash rate may drop, but overall it is better for the future of Bitcoin as well as crypto assets in general.
