No one knows for sure whether or not the disruptive socio-economic paradigm brought by Blockchain technology and its applications will really take hold in our world. For all that we know, though, those who believe that the recent bear market or crypto winter will be fatal to the success of Blockchain are losing sight of that deeper sense of the paradigm itself, which goes well beyond the speculation over its specific realization. The hope is that Blockchain can trigger more participatory, collaborative, and inclusive mass logics and that it can become a major tool used to improve current systems. The digital transformation underway is closely related to a new trend of network building. Such activity, in view of a near future in which technologies will have reached a more specific state, could be the factor enabling the shared creation and direct exchange of value in ecosystems of various kinds, not limited to economics. To make sure that this mindset change will lead us all in the direction of sustainability and democracy, it is fundamental to disclose to the vast public knowledgeable insights — not only the ones related to technological aspects — that can help in understanding the topic better and in evaluating the potential application of such ideas to different contexts. …

When looking at the blockchain ecosystem over the past few years (2016–2018) some surprising observations can be made. When compared to previous market cycles, which have usually been related to traditional institutional buyers and fear of missing out on parabolic trends, these observations may have some qualitative meaning applied to them.

My general observation is as follows: Bear Cycles occur when institutional investors are held to the same standards as normal market participants. Bull Cycles occur when institutional investors are held to their own standards as market makers.

When a market has the potential to return 3000% in 12 months, big volume buyers are always interested in moving their own wealth through those markets; we see large market adoption of specific assets during these FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) windows: BTC, LTC, ETH, XRP, EOS, and more have all gone through phases where global exchanges have leveraged the listing of those specific assets as validation mechanics for their platform to attract high-cap traditional wealth. …
