Crypto Businesses Are Growing Weary as Stocks Fall and Inflation Continues

Many crypto businesses are growing weary as stocks fall and inflation continues. Despite cryptocurrency experiencing growing popularity amid the pandemic, a steep number of these startups and banks are now closing their doors or completing layoffs.

Former federal reserve employee turned professor at Duke University says, Lee Reiners, “The tide has gone out in crypto, and we see that many of these businesses and platforms rested on shaky and unsustainable foundations. The music has stopped.”

Crypto businesses are growing weary as stocks fall and inflation continues. Here’s a list of some of the companies that resorted to layoffs:

  • Coinbase
  • Gemini
  • BlockFi
  • Crypto.com

In the past, cryptocurrency companies were seen as invincible to the inflation and setbacks that centralized banks experienced. But now, that’s no longer the case. These crypto firms and startups are now just as susceptible to inflation and stock fluctuation as the brick-and-mortar banks of yesterday experienced. Experts say this is because, unlike when crypto companies started, they are now tied to the market as a whole. As a result, the most susceptible companies will be those firms that created their own cryptocurrencies. Other experts have long warned that the crypto boom would not last and that the boom experienced over the past two years wouldn’t last forever.
