These are truly testing times for crypto investors as global concerns over inflation, increasing interest rates and a strengthening dollar have impacted the altcoin market,” he said.

Analysts point out the rate hikes, rising inflation, recession fear, Terra-Luna fiasco, Russia-Ukraine war crisis as the key reasons which dented the crypto market sentiments. Crypto, a highly risky asset, is proactively sold by institutions in volatile times.
Decoding the reason for this mayhem, Edul Patel Co-Founder and CEO, Mudrex said that the crypto market has been on a bearish consolidation since early April and has started to fall since mid-May due to several macroeconomic factors.
The market has not yet recovered from the recent crash as market participants are moving away from the riskier assets class, he added. “Memecoins were the most impacted cryptos during the crash.”
Market might take a little more time to recover and get back, said the analysts. Investors are also hesitant to return to the market with increasing fear of inflation and recession, they add.
“Since the market is down, it can be a great opportunity for investors looking to stock up on cryptos to DCA,” advised Patel. “Investors with a less-risk appetite should observe the market movements closely and not jump into impulsive buying.”
“Investors are advised to go Bitcoin heavy to navigate the current bear market,” Subburaj suggested as he sees it akin to the go to crypto asset. “BTC has dropped over 80 per cent in previous cycles and subsequently registered new highs every time.”
“With other altcoins, the risk of the project closing down always remains,” he added. “As long as their portfolios grow in value in terms of Bitcoins, they can be assured that their portfolio will grow in currency terms over time.”
