It's the great Crypto Crash Charlie Brown! The naysayers will put DC's PRIDE parade to shame as they will make the news circuits and say "WE TOLD YOU SO!!!" Yes, these are incredibly tough days and only in time will it make any sense. Can this be the capitulation event? I continue to see Analyst's sentiment that we could possibly see between $17K-$20K before the massacre is over.  

The Celsius collapse was definitely unexpected as the LUNA debacle. It is easy to lean into the FUD and begin the panic and it's understandable but it's key remain open, listen, and wait. Even in the midst of all the carnage, building continues so the game isn't over; IMHO. 

In addition, the FIGHT phase is definitely here as Binance has now delisted Litecoin which implemented MimbleWimble (Privacy features) and it doesn't signal a good sign but things will continue to get crazier before they get sane. This is the game we play, I've been in Crypto since 2011 and have seen 3 of these disastrous scenarios and I HODL because nothing fundamentally has changed about Bitcoin (NOT CRYPTO) and so, let's see where we go. Buckle up!
