The challenges of crypto startups

Crypto has grown a lot and has the potential to change financial services. To keep going and be successful, crypto startups need to be careful and deal with new challenges and risks

Increased competition

As more and more startups enter the crypto market, competition can become intense. Established companies with deeper pockets and greater brand recognition can make it challenging for startups to gain a foothold and build a loyal customer base.

Market volatility

The highly volatile nature of the crypto market presents a challenge for investors, as prices can fluctuate wildly in short periods of time. This makes it difficult to accurately forecast returns on investment, and may discourage some investors from providing crypto startup funding.

Cybersecurity risks

Attracting funding for crypto startups can be a challenge, as there are relatively few crypto-specific funds available. This difficulty is compounded by the lack of trust in the industry, following events such as the FTX crash, making it challenging for those looking to invest in blockchain companies.
