The volatile nature of the crypto space brings about many challenges, particularly during the bear market. For smaller scale startups in the space, it can be difficult to secure funding or find clients that are ready to adopt the new asset class.

So for digital asset organizations, there is greater motivation to build reliable technology that can create connectivity and increase adoption.
