“We all got caught up in this hype, we all got caught up in believing things we knew were untrue.”
— Meltem Demirors
Interview location: Skype
Interview date: Sunday 30th Dec, 2018
Role: Chief Strategy Officer
As we enter a new year and reflect on 2018, it is essential to learn from any mistakes we have made. The 2018 Crypto bear market has hit many hard, from trading losses to layoffs at Bitmain and Consensys to the closing of GigaWatt, the contraction in the market has been painful.
Crypto and Bitcoin still offer so much opportunity and the survivors of the bear market continue building and continue learning. So what next? What will happen to all these protocols and crypto startups? Almost certainly, the ICO mania is over, and now we need to enter the phase of value creation.
In this interview I talk to Meltem Demirors, Chief Strategy Office at CoinShares. We discuss what happened in 2018, the lessons we should all learn and look forward to 2019, setting out our hopes, wishes and personal resolutions.
