Industry insights from Kate Anderson

We asked Kate about key trends in the cryptocurrency market in 2022.

What trends are we likely to see in the crypto market going forwards?

As the cryptocurrency market prepares itself for the next bull run, there will be a lot of focus on improving user experience. Zoomers (Gen Z) account for a significant proportion of investors, so exchanges will look to more innovation to better serve them. Institutions are also expected to become more involved in the market, so we’re likely to see new products for business as well as institutional and crypto partnerships. However, there’s still a lot of work to be done in the sector on improving trust and security. Terra’s collapse and Celsius’ bankruptcy have cast a long shadow over the integrity of the crypto market.
