At the end of 2021 cryptocurrencies were the rage.
Everyone wanted in and the sky was the limit. As we
begin 2023, numerous crypto exchanges and
decentralized finance businesses are in ruins and one
of the moguls of the crypto world, Sam Bankman-
Fried, is on house arrest awaiting trial for wire fraud
and numerous other charges while his business, FTX,
is in bankruptcy court.
At the end of 2021 the crypto world was counting profits
and believing that the sky was the limit. At the
beginning of 2023 investors are asking if they will ever
get their money back from failed crypto businesses.
Why invest in cryptocurrencies today?
Why Invest in Crypto?
Over the years various reasons have been proposed for
why one should put their money into
cryptocurrencies. The one that is the strongest even
during the ravages of crypto winter is that unlike
currencies like the US dollar or euro (fiat currencies),
cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have a maximum
supply that is set by their internal code or
mathematical algorithm. Thus, nobody can keep
printing more and more currency like happened in
Germany in the 1920s or is happening today in
countries like Venezuela and Argentina.
Reasons to Invest in Crypto That Have Fallen by the
Wayside
Crypto proponents said that crypto tokens like Bitcoin
were unrelated to other financial assets and thus not
subject to the same financial pressures. They were a
hedge against inflation and a store of value during
times of social and political unrest as well as times of
war.
However, over the last years Bitcoin has gone up and
down virtually in lockstep with the Nasdaq market.
The world is seeing the worst inflation in four decades
and crypto has fallen by as much as three-fourths of its
peak value while the dollar has risen against other
currencies during crypto winter.
War is raging in Ukraine as Putin seeks to reestablish the
Soviet Empire and crypto has fallen. The one way in
which crypto currencies have helped is in the ability
for Ukrainians to walk out of their country and carry
the key to their savings on a thumb drive!
Bank Failures and Recovery of Bitcoin
What is in the news recently is the failure of SVB and
other regional banks which has caused fears of the
collapse of many regional banks. Meanwhile, Bitcoin,
Ether, and other crypto tokens have rallied. One needs
to mention that the “recovery” of Bitcoin has mirrored
that of the Nasdaq as stock market traders bet that a
stressed banking system will keep the Federal Reserve
from raising interest rates any more or at least so
rapidly.
What Does the 2022 Collapse of Crypto Tell Us?
Bloomberg published a useful article detailing the many
facets of the 2022 crypto collapse. The salient feature
of crypto in 2022 when all was said and done was that
the decentralized system of crypto exchanges,
decentralized finance businesses, and even blockchain
gaming, NFTs, and the Metaverse were much more
centrally controlled than envisioned in a perfect crypto
world where transactions were supposed to be person
to person without middlemen taking their cut.
Not only were so many crypto businesses interlinked
with loans and investments but many, like FTX, were
claiming money loaned from one branch of the
business to the other as separate and unencumbered
assets. What this tells us is that it is time to bring
crypto into the broader regulatory scheme that other
financial entities must endure in order to protect
investors from business collapse and fraud.
Does Supply and Demand Apply to Bitcoin?
The best argument for Bitcoin and other
cryptocurrencies as an investment is that there will be
a limit on the supply. The demand is another matter.
On the other hand, crypto businesses like
decentralized finance, blockchain gaming, non-
fungible tokens, and various aspects of the Metaverse
all hold promise as useful and profitable ways that
cryptocurrencies can and will be used for years to
come.
Our opinion is that crypto tokens that are tied to
practical applications are more likely to increase in
value and be good investments than tokens whose only
selling point is scarcity. In this regard we expect Ether
to surpass Bitcoin in market cap going forward.
