Let's be fair and understand that in any situation that involves money there are always people only chasing profit for what they desires are driven them, and this ones are the ones who actually take the crypto and other business their participate to the extreme of development or the regression of it! Mercenaries in Crypto are those one that are killing the environment and put at danger the all ecosystem!
Mercenaries we can classify those ones that are in the cryptocurrency only to earn they desired profit from it and dump it when they reach what they need on it! Cryptocurrency enthusiasts are not driven by the price but for all that involves the ecosystem surrounding it, the development of crypto and their adoption and worldwide expansion to become a system of payment and store of value.
Actually I believe that the people who just chase profit and with no intention to make it a living style or a future of money and the Industry's based on blockchain don't deserve to be in the crypto space.
Putting down the market will always be threatened by this kind of people and of course if we are more favourable to this kind of development we are conspirators to hurt our revolutionary and beneficial market The Crypto space!
Mercenaries in Crypto are really and will be around for much more time than we think they are! Revolution is here to stay and digital assets are more important for the next times, a warrant to a great future and this must be different from the traditional and centralized monetary system!
I believe that the Mercenaries are hidden in many forms and because they have means, they could also manipulate the BTC price...but they can't do the same with our vision of the future of money!
