Podcast: Why the crypto crash impacts you?



Cryptocurrencies were all the rage in the past few years on account of rising asset prices and volatility. Now, they are going through a bear market that has witnessed some popular currencies going totally bust. This phenomenon of an “asset class” going from hot to untouchable is not new. We’ve seen this again and again in different forms and proportions.

The current bear market in cryptos certainly impacts the investors, start-ups, promoters, and VCs who are directly involved in the crypto business. But, this bear market has second-order effects that may impact you as well. Listen in, as Deepak and Shray discuss the nuances of how the crypto bear market impacts you.
