Garbage ICOs wipeout

Over the past six months, hundreds of the ICOs have been forced to close up shop, which CoinFi CEO Timothy Tam said was a necessary shakeout for the market, writes CNBC.

“The garbage, or at least a good portion of it, is starting to get collected,” Tam said. “Ultimately this strengthens the market.”

Still, he underlined that a 10 percent bitcoin spike doesn’t mean crypto prices are in the clear or that it’s “time to breath a sign of relief.”

“If anything, it proves speculation still dominates and most — not all, but most — are not trading in reality,” Tam told CNBC, adding that he saw some institutional-level money flow into the markets over the last 48 hours. Tam said certain investors had been sitting on the sidelines, waiting for the market to find bottom.

“It’s certainly a hell of a lot more cost efficient to buy now,” he said. “The hope is that the market has culled jumpy retail investors and, as regulators move in, we start to see some much needed stability.”
