FTX, DCG, Genesis and Bitcoin: Crisis won’t include a lot of selling and market is safe – Novogratz

  • Crypto veteran, Mike Novogratz is convinced the latest crypto crisis won’t be detrimental to the industry.
  • The hurdles, according to him may make investors prioritize how they engage with the industry.

The impact of the ongoing crisis in the crypto market particularly the recent implosion of the FTX Derivatives Exchange has been downplayed by veteran industry executive Mike Novogratz. Weighing in on the current events in the industry, Novogratz said the current liquidity crisis between Digital Currency Group (DCG) and its subsidiary, Genesis alongside other embattled firms will play out over the next quarter.

Speaking in an interview with CNBC, Novogratz said while the DCG strain is “not good news,” it won’t “include a lot of selling.”

There has been clear evidence that the market might be recovering from the underlying impact of these collapses with the recent price run as seen since the beginning of the year. The combined digital currency market cap surged back above the $800 billion resistance and is pegged at $856.92 billion, up 0.89% over the past 24 hours.

This growth was fueled by the 3.60 percent weekly growth in Bitcoin which pegged the top coin at a price of $17,420.96. Ethereum is also up 6.69 percent to $1,333.11 within the same time frame according to our data. With these recent price upshoots, Novogratz appears to be talking from an informed position.

In the interview, he acknowledged that though the outlook for crypto is bad at this time, the broader industry is not going away.

The company’s enthusiastic view of the industry has pushed it to reveal that there may be more venture funding for this new year, despite the distrust fueled by FTX Derivatives Exchange. The company is billed to continually double down on its earlier offerings in the space, including the facilitation of the first Over Counter transaction in partnership with Goldman Sachs.
