“Declines are like a road bump”

Now the crypto market has lost a total of 80 percent of its total value during 2018. Although the cryptocurrency markets have gone down and been volatile with large movements, James Bevan, CEO of charity company Ccla, believes that the declines for the crypto markets are only like a road bump, that the market will get over.

“I don’t regard this as an existential crisis, I just regard it as a bump in the road and institutional investors have had plenty of bumps in the road in conventional currencies and transaction systems”, James Bevan said in a panel at Bloomberg Crypto Summit in London, Bloomberg writes.
