As Cryptos Crash, Twitter is Drowning in Memes
Bitcoin and several other cryptocurrencies have been on a wild ride in the past few weeks. Just earlier this week, Bitcoin dropped to $29,000 — before bouncing back — following China’s newly announced crackdown on the crypto which triggered the shuttering of several mining sites.
To put this in perspective, Bitcoin, which today stands at $33,000, is down almost 50% from its high of $65,000 in April.
And the crypto market cap, which today stands at $1.32 trillion, according to CoinMarketCap, fell by nearly $230 billion between June 20 and June 22, according to Cointelegraph. It has managed to regain $76 billion in value on June 23.
These wild swings have put investors on edge, and many are taking to Twitter to talk about the #cryptocrash, whether they are buying the dip, hodlers, are just simply frustrated.
Users are feeling the stress as they are “watching crypto charts live”:

Some, like this user, is all for Hodlers:

And finally, some “veteran Hodlers,” such as The Cryptic Poet, are enjoying the ride:

Whether you’re a crypto novice or a veteran investor, a HODLER or a panic seller, what matters when it comes to cryptos is remembering that volatility is part of the game: one Musk tweet or one China crackdown can make all the difference in a second.
