CZ advises us to prepare for a crypto boom
He detailed the successful 2017 and the tragic 2018 for the crypto space. CZ also said that the crypto market is extremely undervalued at the moment and many cryptos are oversold.
CZ always makes sure to tell people that the crypto prices are not that important. For him, developments and achievements are the essential things we should be checking out.
CZ revealed that he’s not usually looking at the prices in the market.
Binance is more concentrated on building rather than checking prices; they want to be prepared for the next massive crypto wave that is going to hit us.
“I’m very, very confident that this space will get so much bigger, we just got to be prepared for when that happens,” CZ said.
