In the last century, humanity has never faced a foe as strong as that of the Coronaviruses. Therefore, since the Spanish flu of the second decade of the TWENTIETH century there was a disease with consequences as catastrophic as the Covid-19. And not just for the health of the people, but also for the global economy. That’s why, Jimmy Song says in the Tweet of the day that the crisis of the Coronavirus is a test for the altcoins.
The economic downturn is an interesting test for altcoins.
During good times, speculation/gambling is rampant.
During downturns, people fly to liquidity, which is BTC/USD.
Meaning much lower liquidity for alts or to sharp drop in

We refer to the altcoins, the cryptocurrencies alternatives to Bitcoin, which, according to Jimmi Song, are faced with the test of his life: “The economic recession is an interesting test for the altcoins. During the good times, speculation and gambling are rampant. During a crisis, people rush towards liquidity, that is BTC/USD. What that means liquidity is much lower for the alts or a sharp drop in its price. What do you think will happen?“ This Song explains how despite the fact that they are still uncertain of the effects of Coronavirus on the Bitcoin.
