This week, each of us definitely experienced some stress. On Wednesday, the market was in chaos, traders were in hysterics, and investors lost billions. Those who have long been in the cryptocurrency environment have already recovered and expressed very optimistic predictions about the market. For example, Bill Miller isn’t fazed by the bitcoin drop and says the volatility is “pretty routine”

Cathie Wood, still a Bitcoin believer, sees it going to $500,000.

And Mike Novogratz predicted an increase in the price of Ethereum to the level of $5,000. He also believes that the fall of Bitcoin is a buy signal and the current drawdown does not change the overall bullish trend.

“Markets should not be an easy way to earn money. If they were, we’d all be rich. Markets overheat, then adjust. It is normal.”

Let’s talk a little about the price list. Bitcoin fell to $30k, bitcoin stocks on the exchanges reached the lowest in four months. This happened after the largest outflow of digital coins in a year was recorded against the background of the collapse of cryptocurrency quotes on May 19. In one day, users of crypto exchanges brought to cold wallets about 175 thousand bitcoins for $7 billion at the exchange rate at that time.
