Deflationary spiral: Are cryptocurrencies at risk
In the context of cryptocurrencies, a deflationary spiral may happen when there is a self-reinforcing process of draining the supply of coins or tokens from the markets. Although this has not happened in practice, it is a theoretical possibility often cited as one of Bitcoin's potential long term weaknesses.

An anonymous source told CNBC-TV18, that the panel has "categorically said that all such currencies [cryptocurrencies] should be treated as illegal." Furthermore, the panel has also suggested that "the law should enlist punitive measures that the government and its investigative agencies can take in case it finds anyone or any entity trading or dealing/ holding it [cryptocurrencies]."

Year in Review: Bitcoin Outperformed 40 of the Top 50 Cryptocurrencies in 2018 | The Daily Hodl
It's been a long year for many cryptocurrencies. After reaching a high of nearly $20,000 in December of 2017, Bitcoin dropped below $10,000 in early March and has yet to revisit that level. In the ongoing bear market, BTC has lost over 84% of its value, reaching a low for the year of $3,200. But Bitcoin's precipitous plunge wasn't the biggest in crypto. XRP, for example, lost about 93% of its value in 2018. After much internet hype, multiple TV appearances and an abundance of rumors about partnerships, both confirmed and unconfirmed, the digital asset shot up to a staggering high of $3.38 in 2018. Since then, XRP has dropped to as low as $0.26 over the course of the year.

Two-Third of the Top 50 Cryptocurrencies Dropped over 90% in 2018

But the extent of the Crypto winter in 2018 is daunting given that 30 out the top 50 Cryptocurrencies have also lost over 90% of their value. A diagram from Longhash shows all the top 50 Cryptocurrencies in different colors based on the value lost in 2018. Except for the stable coins which are pegged to the Dollar such as Tether and Paxos every other Cryptocurrency has lost more than 60% of its value.
