Let’s admit it, 2018 has been an awful year for cryptocurrency. Fueled by Hopium and promises of a bull run, the market tanked over 80% from its all time high in January. 11 days in and 2019 doesn’t seem to be much better than the year before, markets are still down and signs of recovery are far and few in between.
Most crypto news sites’ alexa rankings are in free fall and Google trends shows a 93 point decline in interest since January. Statistics don’t lie, and looking at any metric regarding crypto interest will tell a similar story. So why did everybody stop caring about crypto?
