Dear Centric Community,
Q2 is under our belt, which means 2022 is already half over. Hard to believe, isn’t it?
What a difference a quarter makes.
If you’ve been paying attention to the broader crypto market, you’ll know Q1 closed with bitcoin in the mid-40s ($45,538.68). Three months later, it plummeted by over fifty percent, including dipping below $20K and taking most of the market down with it. While certainly not unscathed, Centric Swap has fared the storm better than some.
Even amid a crypto winter—and with rumblings of a possible global recession on the way—Centric Foundation remains optimistic. There’s an incredible peace that comes from knowing that regardless of market swings, red candles, and bloody price charts (too dramatic?), our hero Centric Rise continues to grow, hour by hour, unphased by the swirling chaos. CNR’s pre-programmed hourly price blocks don’t check with the market to decide if they should activate or not. The blockchain enforces CNR’s growth, irrespective of any emotion, FUD, or FOMO.
If history repeats itself—and it usually does—this too shall pass, and we’ll be back in a bull market before we know it. Meanwhile, we continue to work every day to advance Centric adoption worldwide.
Bear markets are the times to buckle up, tighten the belt, focus on the essentials, and continue to build. And that’s what we’re doing at Centric Foundation.
By the way, many of you have shared that you’re looking at the current market as CNS accumulation season. Not financial advice, but there’s a reason the phrase Buy Low, Sell High gets bandied about, regardless of the financial weather.
On that note, let’s take a step back and review the terrain we traversed over the past three months.
