Dear Fortuna supporters,

Founder Brian Cai’s Foreword

On January 9th, 2018, Xiaoping Xu, founder of ZhenFund, announced that the revolution of blockchain is coming, and it is a significant technological revolution which allows those adopters to prosper and those resisters to perish. He also called on people to open their arms to embrace the impacts that blockchain will bring to all walks of life.

Ever since then, blockchain has soon been under the spotlight. All the newbies were crazy about it and invested all their money into the world of crypto.

On August 15th, 2018, the total market value of cryptos is less than 200 billion USD, 70% lower compared with seven months ago.

Currently, we rarely hear slogans like “All in.” Instead, we ’ll stand a chance to hear things like “Hodl”and “Perseverance Prevails.”

This round of bear market will last for a long time. It ’s pretty hard to predict when it will come to an end. Only by self-sufficient can one live well both in the bear and bull market.

If the bear market stays still till the end of this year, the impacts are as follows:

First of all, a large number of projects will be shut down. To be more specific, their core team will no longer function, or they just switched their business direction.

Secondly, those projects which dedicated to building infrastructure will go bankrupt. A feeding-frenzy will ensue. As we all know, it’s quite hard for those technology-driven projects which specialized in providing blockchain infrastructure to make profits in the short run. If they’re insufficient in cash reserves, then their core members will be more likely to be poached by other A-level projects.

Thirdly, no blockchain business application-oriented project has found out a full set of profit models. Therefore, the trial and error model will be significantly narrowed in the bear market. This will, in turn, cause the failure to meet profit demand raised by investors.
