The year 2020-2021 saw a large influx of new investors into the crypto market making its trading volume soar. Tesla CEO Elon Musk singlehandedly brought in the majority of investors into the crypto fold after he announced his investments in Dogecoin in early 2021. The market was plush with new and first-time investors and all top coins saw phenomenal growth up until May 21′. The market then saw a slump during the second half of the year but picked up steam in November. Both Bitcoin and Ethereum reached their all-time highs during that period and the sky seemed to be the limit.

The market took a complete u-turn from its bull run in 2021 and is slumping to new lows in 2022. Investors who entered the market between 2020-2021 have suffered the most losses and the market is testing its mettle. The bear market is running in a never-ending cycle making ‘buy the dip’ seem to be too risky.

Analysts worry that the batch of new investors might turn away from the crypto market due to facing heavy losses. “If the market decline continues, it will become too painful and retail investors will bail,” said Eben Burr, the president of Toews Asset Management to Reuters.

“Everyone has a breaking point,” he added citing that the younger investors might not return with new money anymore.
