CoinNewsLive (CNL): What are your thoughts on the existence of bad actors in the space and what does it mean?
Jonha: “I view the development of blockchain in the same way the internet grew. At first, it was just the cool kids and over time it moved mainstream. Blockchain is similar in a way. There are bad actors in the industry, this says more about the makeup of the populace than any underlying moral in the technology.”
CNL: What impact will the current crypto winter have on the ecosystem in the long term?
Jonha: “New technology starts off elitist, expensive, and often scrappy. But I feel the long crypto winter has been good for the sector. It is a shame and I feel for people have lost jobs but now only scalable, provable projects will move forward.”
“The market and the whole industry has an interesting way of policing itself as people who get involved tend to become wiser, projects that don’t necessarily deserve the attention and money of their investors get busted. Hopefully, the industry will clear of such junk projects and have more time on focusing on building impactful products and services.”
With most analyst including Jonha, predicting a better ecosystem after the current cryptocurrency winter, it will be interesting to see how things turn out as the market begins to pick up.
