Regulation tends to add legitimacy as well as limit competition.

Yeah, Bitcoin annually goes on sale when folks in Asia sell some off to cover New Year's expenses. And this year the South Korea thing happened at the same time. I was just at TNABC in Miami and no one looked bovvered. The closest I saw was a joke that a few Lambo orders probably got cancelled. :lol:

Op-Ed: When is a Crash a Crash?
Once again we awake to a sea of red in crypto land. It has become quite a familiar sight this year with only a few days showing the potential for a rebound. It hasn’t happened and Bitcoin continues to tumble pulling all of its brethren down with it.

Crypto space isn’t the only place in pain though; stock markets across the world have taken a beating this week also so how do we really define a ‘crash’?
