You can’t participate in the crypto craze without participating in the crypto crash.
The January crypto crash wiped out $1 trillion, with Bitcoin off 50% of its market high. The sell-off over the past two months has brought the crypto market cap from $3 trillion in assets down to $1.6 trillion.
In May of last year, a crypto crash also wiped out over $1 trillion in market value.
This month’s sell-off has introduced young investors to the principal of risk-adjusted returns. A risk-adjusted return measures the profit of an investment against the risk that must be taken to achieve it. In essence, what goes up… must come down. So, what’s the moral of the story? Don’t invest in the crypto craze unless your risk tolerance supports participating in the crypto crash.
