It shouldn't come as a surprise that Crypto Specific Subs – are served with an insane amount of Copium. When anything bad happens with the crypto you can check the Sub and find the latest spin for why “it is actually a good thing” and why the token is going to inevitably Moon.
Being a previous sub favorite and one of the most shilled Cryptos on this sub in 2021, everyone here is probably more familiar with the 46th Ranked Crypto, 'Algorand' – than higher ranked cryptos like: Stacks, Aave, FileCoin, or OKB. As a result, it shouldn't be surprising that Algorand gets an unequal amount of attention over it's horrendous bear market performance.
Even today Algorand continues to drop and is currently the worst performing crypto over the last 7 days out of any crypto in the top 100 by Marketcap.
For the past year, whenever I see anything bad happen to Algorand I check the Algorand Sub and often see the same rehashed lines
“Algorand is the easiest to use L1 and has the best tech this bear market doesn't matter”
“Now is the time to buy Algorand, Development is only getting easier”
When people call out Algorand for it's obvious flaws, like the Centralization of ALGO and the Foundation constantly dumping on retail. You see things on the Algo sub like:
“The more the Foundations dump now, the less they can dump later. This is going to become bullish in a bull market.”
As a spectator it's easy to believe these lines, especially coming from people who are so confident that their crypto of choice will recover.
Despite that – Algorand has just continued to fall during this bear market and currently shows no signs that it might recover. Especially now that the biggest ALGO DEX is closing shop.
It's true, the CryptoCurrency sub does have a horrendous record and will often shill pumping projects only to make the new buyers – bag holders. But for all of its flaws, this sub does have users that really know the Pros/Cons of different Crypto projects, and aren't just going to repeat the same lines of raw and unfiltered Copium that you'd find in a Crypto Specific Sub like Algorand
Don't look for investment guidance in a Crypto Specific Sub – If you do, you'll likely end up DCA'ing into a endlessly dumping project based off an insane amount of unfiltered copium from the existing (bag)holders.
