Honorable mention


Marc Bhargava, the co-founder of Tagomi, a company that has recently joined the Libra Association, spoke about the current market cryptocurrency downturn. Since Tagomi is well connected with some of the biggest exchanges as well as some of the biggest crypto traders, he may see the market movement from another perspective.

Bhargava believes that cryptocurrency is not a safe haven asset. This goes against the beliefs of other analysts. “BTC as well as crypto are currently a risk-on asset, more alike tech and VC rather than gold.”
