Alternatively, the crypto world was recently bombarded by news from Christine Legarde, President of the European Central Bank, who stated that ‘Bitcoin is worth nothing’.

Her recent statements come as central banks remain skeptical of cryptocurrencies, with leading countries looking for more regulation for the space.

Certainly, that crypto, like any investment is risky; however, the recent collapse of another stablecoin has raised alarms among regulators who are becoming more impatient with the possibility of crypto markets regulating themselves.

On the whole, crypto enthusiasts have reasons to remain bullish on crypto as more adoption could lead to more stability and predictability in the markets. Even satirical projects aim at making the markets more stable and secure for the end-users.

With such a vibrant and creative community it seems only a matter of time before markets stabilize and continue their uptrend.
