Q1 2023 Recap

Among other things in the first quarter of 2023 BankSocial Exchange expanded bringing CNS to even more users, and Centric Rise experienced growth as well as a significant reduction in supply.

Dear Centric Community,

The first quarter of 2023 brought continued volatile market momentum, climaxing with the disturbing collapses of crypto-friendly banks, including Silicon Valley Bank, Signature Bank, and Silvergate. 

While sobering, the bank scare seems to have sparked some renewed interest in crypto, bringing bitcoin to a 9-month high of above $28K. Are these bullish signs heralding a crypto market recovery—or just a temporary lift? We’ll leave that for you to ponder, and for the market to ultimately decide. 

Either way, for the time being, we’re keeping our heads down and sticking to our bear market strategy that we shared with the community at the beginning of the year.  

Now let’s take a look back at the first three months of 2023.
