As the company keeps a close eye on the great cryptocurrency crash, WEBB COO stated that:

“The downturn in cryptos is partly blamed by the automatic stop-loss orders placed to mitigate the risks to the currency investors, also the completion of the hard fork from bitcoin and bitcoin cash split, and additionally the rise of interest to institute government regulation that is needed in order for mainstream investors to enter the space.

What is disconcerting is now there is an open investigation by the Justice Department to determine whether there was fraud conducted prior to the run up in bitcoin price at the beginning of the year. This investigation, if true, could precipitate a collapse of Crypto industry around early to mid of 2019. A number of expert analysts predict such a great cryptocurrency crash collapse. If that happens, I think with the addition of new regulation and an industry wide adoption of safe investor practices will likely validate the tech and support the foundation for the next digital currency growth.

And when that happens we will see institutions and banks readily move in as they will ensure their interests in this next financial growth helps to benefit their bottom lines. To paraphrase Betty Davis, ‘Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride’.”
