Joseph Lubin is ending 2018 with positive cryptocurrency predictions. He took to Twitter to elaborate on the ‘cryptobottom of 2018.’
I am calling the cryptobottom of 2018. This bottom is marked by an epic amount of fear, uncertainty, and doubt from our friends in the 4th and crypto-5th estates.

With the several replies by him to his Tweet, it portrayed that he wanted to clear the air about ConsenSys’s rumored issues. The reports of ConsenSys cutting down 60% of its staff, was clearly answered by Lubin. He stated that the same employees are looking at filling other roles in the company.
He clearly emphasized about the future looking bright, and that scalability is going to change the impact of the cryptocurrency market.
One thing to note was Monero’s lead developer, Ricardo Spagni’s sarcastic tweet to Vitalik Buterin’s reply about how the public portrayed ConsenSys cutting staff. Spagni called out Buterin on his response stating that ConsenSys has no organisational management strategy. Buterin’s ‘lulz’ in the reply was also faced by a heavy backlash by users as it showed disrespect to people losing jobs, to which Buterin justified it was about the public’s response.
Expand up to 1100 people, shrink to 600, keeping the 6/11ths that are most productive: they have no idea how to manage capital, capacity plan, or hire.
Expand up to 600 with no shrinking, announce every step of the expansion: wow, clearly competent & experienced leadership.
