Referring to the post Vitalik Buterin commented, “Is anyone surprised? We’re at the tail end of a crypto bubble.” This is not the first time Vitalik Buterin commented on the ups and downs of the market. Just last month, he said, “There’s no ‘cure’ for bubbles except to let them run their course and pop, unfortunately.”

Coinbase CEO’s take

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong did not comment on this particular post but he had previously shared his thoughts on the ups and downs of the market. Previously, he said that downturns are a good time to focus and work more.

Armstrong said, “The crypto industry is like no other I’ve seen – lots of up and down cycles (reaching a new plateau each time). There have been 3 or 4 of these now. It can be scary the first time you see it, but to us who have been in the industry for many years, it feels like old news.”

“When there is hype, people are irrationally exuberant. When there is despair, people are irrationally pessimistic. Neither is true. Reality is always somewhere in the middle, more correlated with real usage (transactions per day) than the price,” he added, “We use the down cycles to build a strong foundation so we can thrive in the next growth cycle.”
