The CEOs of Twitter and Tesla have said that bitcoin “will make it,” but recent ecosystem developments suggest that the financial winter may continue for quite some time.
Elon Musk, the recently hired CEO of Twitter, tweeted early Monday morning, “BTC will survive, but it might be a hard winter.”
The statement follows recent tragic occurrences that caused the Crypto ecosystem to collapse. However, this “crypto winter,” as it is often known, has been gradually deteriorating due to institutional breakdown in the ecosystem and shifting global financial circumstances.
Musk’s response came in response to a remark that recalled BTC’s previous high of $69,000 and inquired about the price of bitcoin a year from now.
After the collapse of Terra’s so-called stablecoin caused chaos in the financial world, the sector was afflicted by a cascade of uncertainty. Suddenly, institutions and the global community were forced to acknowledge that algorithmic stablecoins may fail. Companies with a great deal of vulnerability quickly collapsed with the Terra infrastructure.
FTX, one of the most prominent cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, abruptly and almost immediately ceased operations. The company, which portrayed itself as an ecosystem rescuer by insisting it would purchase other failing firms to safeguard consumers, failed to protect its own clients after declaring bankruptcy and subsequently having over $515 million in consumer assets compromised.
Even though trust in the ecosystem’s institutions and custodial service providers is deteriorating, as Musk stated, “BTC will succeed.” Consumers may simply learn to have more faith in themselves than in people whose decisions and actions can affect not just them but also the whole ecosystem.
