The 2022 bear market seems to be never-ending as the crypto markets are down for seven months straight. The global market cap stood at $3 trillion in December 2021, but the same is now at $920 billion. On average, the overall crypto market cap is dipping nearly 3.6% every day in July alone.

The overall sentiment is gloomy as the market is testing the patience of investors every day. Crypto exchanges are experiencing a decline in the number of web traffic and users during the ongoing bear market cycle. Even top crypto exchanges have seen a dip in traffic and this is drying up their revenue stream. Investors placing the ‘buy’ orders are seeing a sharp fall as they fear the markets might face further corrections.
