It’s tough to stomach a 35% drop in any asset.
In the fourth quarter of 2021, bitcoin — the most popular cryptocurrency — hit a record value of more than $68,000 per coin.
It rocketed to that valuation in just 12 years. That’s impressive!
But the last two months haven’t been kind to cryptos, due to a hawkish Federal Reserve and the omicron variant of COVID-19.
It’s making investors more cautious.
Bitcoin Drops 35% in 90 Days
Because of that risk aversion, bitcoin fell 35% off its November 2021 high — the price dipped below $40,000 earlier this week — and other cryptos have fallen just as hard.
There was a rebound midweek, but rising inflation and uncertainty related to high-growth tech stocks (which crypto trades close to) isn’t a great sign for crypto’s near-term future.
However, my dive into the crypto space has uncovered different ways to invest in this emerging market. And it doesn’t involve the high-profile names you are used to hearing.
In this episode of The Bull & The Bear, I tell you how you can invest in this discovery.
