They say that you can differentiate the leaders from bosses by the way that they pull their team and communities up, regardless of the hardships that they may face internally, and if there is any truth to that saying, it looks like 2018 definitely put a spotlight on those start-ups that will continue to thrive in 2019, as well as those that will implode due to lack of leadership and consistency, or simply the lack of appreciation for their team and community members.
As we sit in reflection on the last day of 2018, the team over here at IAGON continues to faithfully seek to change the world, once cpu at a time, with optimal decentralized cloud computing services. While there could, quite literally, be nothing accomplished without a dedicated team, our true pride comes from the people that have continued to support throughout all of the waves that have been proliferating through the market. With 2018 coming to a close, we are reminded of the excitement and uncertainty that accompanied cryptocurrency enthusiasts and investors as 2017 came to a close. An uncertainty that was easily dissolved as the market begin to re-energize itself while affirming the reasons behind cryptos inevitable rocket to the top.
The close of 2017, with bitcoin at their highest point of $19,783.06, and Ether hitting a peak of $1,417.38, proved to be a bit different than that of 2018, as we come to closing numbers that have managed to hover as a mere fraction of the year before. As of the development of this piece, Ether is sitting under $100, while Bitcoin seems to stay in the area of $3,500, however, in my opinion, there could not be a better time to buy into an investment that has endless potential to yield returns.
Okay, we get it. We truly do. There is always going to be ‘the fear of the fall’, but does that mean that you shouldn’t brace yourself, and strap in for the ride? Our team thinks not. In fact, in times such as these, it is imperative that you buckle in and ride it out because there is always sunshine after the rain.
Let’s face it, Rome was not built in one day, and great technologies are not going to be built in the overnight hours either. Immediate gratification is your biggest enemy in the realm of tech, and that is why you’ve got to take the good, with the bad. Just imagine that the contractor working on your home was sitting and clocking every penny worth of wood that they were using. Do you honestly think that micromanaging and excessive oversight of that ONE aspect, would allow for them to put their brain power and energy into the development of a stellar project? I highly doubt it. The same should be said of those of us that are working within this space. Market conditions should never have the ability to sway our dedication towards our projects, and we would suggest that they don’t affect your decision to hold or dump your tokens and/or cease in the supporting of your favorite projects.
So, on this day, the last in a year of triumphs and surprises, the IAGON team implores you to look back on 2018 and share some of the most rewarding and/or frustrating moments in your crypto journey.
Here’s to a New Year!
