CNBC and Mad Money host Jim Cramer advised investors that they still have time to sell their crypto holdings. Cramer urged investors to sell their cryptos before it is too late, as he believes the markets could plunge in 2023. He added that it’s never too late to sell cryptos and jump ship when the prices are still considered high.

“You can’t just beat yourself up and say, ‘hey, it’s too late to sell.’ The truth is, it’s never too late to sell an awful position. And that’s what you have if you own these so-called digital assets,” he said on CNBC.

Cramer included names of leading cryptocurrencies suggesting that they could collapse during the upcoming recession. He named Ripple (XRP), Cardano (ADA), Polygon (Matic), and Dogecoin (Doge), to fall further and claimed they could go to $0.

The CNBC host also took potshots at stablecoins during the segment. TerraUST had depegged in May this year and fell to $0 within three days. He claimed that Tether could also face a similar fate along with other stablecoins in the market.

“Tether, a so-called stablecoin that’s supposed to be kinda-sorta pegged to the dollar, still has a $65 billion market cap. There’s still a whole industry of crypto boosters trying desperately to keep all of these things up in the air. Not too different from what happened with bad stocks during the dot-com collapse,” he said.

Cramer labeled cryptocurrencies “speculative assets” and “so-called digital assets” during the segment.
