If you’re currently on the fence about whether to remain bullish or bearish amid a seemingly weakening crypto market, good news: some of the world’s most iconic investors and industry players have recently given views and insights from both sides of the fence.

Banking on cryptocurrencies nearly reaching a “bottom” is Mike Novogratz, Founder, Chairman & CEO of digital asset merchant bank Galaxy Digital Holdings. In fact, he stated during a recent interview that “We’ve gone to a level that should be close to a bottom: $21,000 Bitcoin (BTC); $1,000 Ethereum (ETH).”

We wish to note that these levels also correspond with the 200MA line - which historically proves that it is, indeed, an excellent time to go long on crypto. Also, at the time of writing, both BTC and ETH prices were going up.

In addition, Novogratz pointed out that “There’s been a tremendous amount of capitulation and fear. Usually not a good area to sell.” And though he agrees that cryptocurrencies could still sink lower, he said that he remains bullish over the long run.

Sharing a similar view is Arthur Hayes, Co-Founder and former chief of BitMEX, who recently tweeted his observation that BTC is forming a base at $20K while ETH is attempting to limit its losses to $1k.

He did, however, warn that should support levels break for BTC (at $20K) and ETH (at $1K), we could expect “massive sell pressure in spot markets.”

On the other hand, seemingly bullish and unbothered is well-known macro investor Raoul Pal who recently tweeted that he is taking the recent market downturn as an opportunity to strengthen his crypto positions “probably starting next week and into July.”

Why? The former Goldman Sachs executive shared a similar view with that of Novogratz and Hayes: BTC is nearing a reversal or, at the very least, a bottom. He further explained, however, that two factors signal this BTC bottom: the relative strength index (RSI) and the DeMark indicator, which uses a mathematical formula to identify inflection points in price.

As for his overall thoughts, he shared that “In fact, the best way to optimize returns is to add significantly when the market tests the key trend.”

Also giving investors his two cents is Anthony Scaramucci, Founder of Skybridge Capital, who recently advised investors to “stay disciplined” given the current condition of the market and with threats of higher inflation looming.  

That said, he stated that he is “...encouraged by the fact that Bitcoin is above 50% of the overall crypto market cap right now.” He also admitted that SkyBridge Capital has been “buying the dip”, saying that “With incremental cash coming into our fund, we have bought more Bitcoin and Ethereum.”

He also mentioned that this is his “eighth bear market” and that he expects “to survive this one as well”, and added that “...people will look back on this debacle and say I wish I had fresh cash to buy into that.”


In comparison, our proposed approach at Cake DeFi remains practical and fundamentally-based on all the benefits that decentralized finance (DeFi) offers.

In fact, in a recently published online article, our Co-Founder and CEO Julian Hosp shared a simple but highly sensible piece of advice on dealing with any type of economic downturn: take it as an opportunity to recalibrate your portfolio.

Indeed, despite the crypto market’s current condition, he believes that astute investors shouldn’t fear the looming “crypto winter” and that “Long-term crypto investors consider such lows and highs as typical market fluctuations and the perfect time to recalibrate their portfolios.”

Needless to say, all of us at Cake DeFi concurs.
