Market Fears Point to Potential Buying Opportunity

The past few months have been brutal for cryptocurrencies, which went from a total market cap over $2 trillion to shedding over half its market value in just a few weeks. One culprit? China, which banned cryptocurrency mining. While the global mining network is reestablishing itself in friendlier jurisdictions, there’s rising concern over how long that will take and if the market will be flooded with used mining equipment.

This Hated Stock Has Massive Rebound Potential

Meme Trade Absurdity Strikes Again
