We titled this year’s report The Great Reset because we believe that’s what 2022 represented for crypto – a great reset in prices, expectations, and speculative interest all across the industry. Every major tailwind that propelled the crypto market higher in Q2 2020-Q4 2021 turned against it, resulting in one of the sharpest and quickest price drawdowns we’ve seen to date.
