Ari Paul, the founder of blockchain investment firm Blocktower Capital, weighed in on the bear market, comparing the current situation to the tech crisis of 2000. Paul wallets Bitcoin (BTC) to Amazon, which is one of the companies that survived the crisis.
In a Twitter thread, Paul noted that while there are “modest” products in the crypto market, many improvements must be made to approach the popular trend. Paul also argues that adoption is “5 years behind” than many hoped.
The Blocktower Capital CEO also highlighted Solana’s network breakdown, delays in Ethereum scaling and future upgrades, and Bitcoin’s security being overlooked during bull runs but “feeling very different” in a bear market, assuming that optimism won’t cut any further in this situation.
Paul then compared the crypto market today to that of Nasdaq in 2000, saying that most cryptocurrencies are risky and in their early stages. However, the Blocktower founder emphasized that something like “Amazon” will survive the crash. He believes it could be Bitcoin.
According to Paul, Bitcoin has “much better odds” than other cryptocurrencies because it has no competitors as a product and in terms of its technology. He tweeted that:
While it sounds bearish, the Blocktower founder clarified that he is “more bullish” on crypto than he was almost a year ago. He just wanted to warn people to be careful with what they buy during the current market downturn.
The effects of the bear market have had a major impact on the livelihoods of some employees in the cryptocurrency industry. Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase recently announced that it will be laying off 18% of its staff because of a drop in revenue and a bear market.
