Regarding whether declining liquidity in the cryptocurrency markets and increasingly aggressive tactics on the part of many virtual currency exchanges could pose a threat to future of the cryptocurrency markets, Mr. Singh stated: “That’s always been the concern about the ICOs, and the trading exchanges in the ICO industry that aren’t quite regulated. […] Last year, getting an ICO token listed on a Binance or a Bittrex could increase your market valuation [by] […] a billion dollars.” Mr. Singh continued: “ICOs are no longer in favor anyway – they’re down 95 percent.

The Bitpay CCO asserted that the performance of many ICO tokens is dependant on the price of the leading cryptocurrency markets, “Until [BTC] and the other large ones […] get back some of the gains, the ICO markets are going to be in a lot of trouble actually, and a lot of those ICOs will never make it back to where they were 8 months ago.” When asked how the bear market has impacted Bitpay’s business, the company’s CCO stated: “At Bitpay, and [among] people I talk to in the industry, we’ve never been more bullish actually,” adding “Business is great, we’re hiring more people, we’re working with several global large companies around the world, […] everyone [is] going full speed ahead.” What do you make of Sonny Singh’s predictions for the cryptocurrency markets?
