On Dec. 30, 2022, anonymous Twitter commentator Shitcoin minimalist (@bccponzi) shared the performance demonstrated by all assets from Cochran’s portfolio. It appeared that the CAP token is the best performing asset on this list: it only lost 33% of its price in 2022.
By contrast, some of the tokens mentioned by the analyst lost over 95% (which means that their valuations declined 20x). Keep3rV1 (KP3R), Helium (HNT), Perpetual Protocol (PERP), Futureswap (FST), Hundred Finance (HND) were among the worst performers with 95-98% losses. Babylon Finance (BABL) lost over 99.9% of its price: since mid-November 2021, its price dropped from $216 to $0.06.
The Flux (FLX) token that was labeled “strong outperform” lost 98% of its price. Ironically, “god tier” and “strong outperform” were decimated more mercifully than others, losing 86% and 87.3%, respectively.
Bitcoin (BTC) was “safe haven” for investors in 2022
Other segments, including “risk-on” and “high-risk,” lost 80-84.5%. Overall, the result of the “2022 shopping list” was 83.92% being lost.
Meanwhile, Ethereum’s (ETH) price only declined by 68.7%; Bitcoin’s (BTC) price dropped by 64.8%. Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) look like “safe haven assets” amid the painful crypto market plunge.
The net capitalization of cryptocurrency markets dropped by almost 61%. On Nov. 22, 2022, cryptocurrency market capitalization reached its bottom below $780 billion.
