He cites the collapse of Mt. Gox, one of the largest Bitcoin exchanges then, saying that the market survived and thrived afterward.

In February 2014, a massive 840,000 BTC hack caused the Mt. Gox exchange to collapse. Just a few months before, Bitcoin had reached a new record high of almost $1,100, with Mt. Gox controlling about 90% of all transactions.

Following the attack, Bitcoin had a subsequent decline in value of up to 85%, bottoming out in January 2015, almost a full year later.

For the first time, traders saw a major Bitcoin bear market, and it was not until December 2017 that another all-time high was reached. Fast forward to 2022, and Bitcoin lost 76% of its value in a year, significantly down from its all-time high of $69,000 attained in November 2021.

FTX contagion spreads

In the past week, institutional lender Genesis Global Capital suspended customer redemptions, citing the abrupt bankruptcy of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX.

Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, the world's largest Bitcoin fund, plunged after the news, and the price of Bitcoin dropped as a result.
