Pantera Capital’s Dan Morehead and two investment associates think the crypto winter is over and has been over for months.
In a recent newsletter, Pantera argues the most recent crypto bear market ended on November 21st and lasted a total of 376 days, more than the median bear market length of 307 days.
“Pantera has been through 10 years of Bitcoin cycles, and I’ve traded through 35 years of similar cycles. I believe that blockchain assets have seen the lows and that we’re in the next bull market cycle – regardless of what happens in the interest-rate-sensitive asset classes.”
Pantera’s investment associate Sehaj Singh notes that Bitcoin (BTC) saw a drawdown of 77% over that time, compared to the median bear market amount of 73%.
Pantera believes crypto is beginning to “grind higher” and is fully in the next bull market cycle already.
Pantera Capital launched the first crypto fund in the US in 2013 and currently has $4.1 billion in assets under management. The company has made 100 venture investments and 110 early-stage token investments.
