Massive Crypto Rush in 2017 reason for the current downfall
Over the past 24 hours, the price of Bitcoin fell below $3600 level – which has also affected some major digital currencies including XRP, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, and more. Mr. Zhao recalls the valuation of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency market in late 2017 which was reaching a peak of $20000. While recalling this in an event, he says;
I believe… at the end of 2017, there was definitely an overshoot on the price side… There was a lot of guys rushing in, very simple projects with very simple whitepapers,
Indeed the meteoric rise in crypto prices enticed massive rush in 2017 and ‘once that massive rush-in finishes the price declines.”, he added.

I’m very, very confident – CZ
Bitcoin’s declining price is not something that Mr. Zhao fears about, in fact, he expressed his level of confidence on the crypto market to thousands of the audience attending the event. Although the daily volume of cryptocurrency market kept on fluctuating with the negative graph, Zhao believes there is a lot more development in crypto space.
“I’m very, very confident that this space will get so much bigger, we just got to be prepared for when that happens.
However, this is not the first time Zhao is positive about the growth of crypto, during an interview at Bloomberg in Mid December 2018, he spoke about his confidence on the future on blockchain, despite his own assets being hit.

Binance focusing on Building
Binance has been crowned the first spot among crypto exchange ranking at Coinmarketcap. Talking about the price movement, he states ‘I don’t look at the price’. Rather, he says, ‘building is crucial than checking the price regularly’. Addressing the audience at the conference, he says that he looks at the price only when somebody informs him about the price movement.
What we do is we focus on building. He continued that; “There are more people in the industry, there are more people working in the industry, there are more people attending conferences, there are more conferences going on.
