The Longest Crypto Bear Market In History

The crypto market has seen the most extended bullish market it has ever seen as the crippling market clocks 411 days in the murky waters of despair prevalent in the crypto industry. The lingering situation is longer than the ones experienced in recent past.

The last crypto bear market that was experienced before the ongoing one saw the top value cryptocurrency, Bitcoin fall from the value of $1,100 to $200. This took place between the end of November 2013 and the beginning of January 2015. This was subsequently followed by a bullish trend that saw it reached its peak at the later period of 2017 before the lingering bear market started.

The present crypto bear market has seen the industry take a great loss of market cap as well value. Most of the cryptocurrencies have seen losses of over 80 percent to 90 percent in value. Also, the market cap of most of the cryptocurrencies has seen similar losses.

Further, the condition of the market has led to great losses for various crypto firms such as ConsenSys, Bitmain, STEEM, NEM, among others. Different crypto firms have taken various forms of austerity measures to survive the crypto market. The methods taken have been evident in the reduction of workforce, decrease of spendings, abandoning of projects, restructuring among others.
