As we reflect on the past year, we see a number possible trends that will affect the market in 2018.
Here are our predictions for the year to come:
1. A major exchange will be hacked
The exchange space is evolving rapidly?—?with many new entrants post-China shut down repainting the space. The emergence and quick dominance of Binance, the reboot of many former mainland platforms, as well as proliferation of exchanges in Japan and in Korea Appearance of many smaller/regional players with other raw tech will lead to more exchanges being compromised, and more used funds at risk. Some are building from scratch. Some are buying off the shelf. Strong security/tech/blockchain talent is impossible to find. Many will come under attack, and there a good chance one major exchange will fall due to lax operational standards and risk management infrastructure.
