As previously reported by Cointelegraph, the CEO of blockchain venture capital firm Digital Currency Group, Barry Silbert, believes that the crypto market is about to transition from winter to spring.
Silbert commented earlier in February, however, that he thought most digital tokens would lose their value eventually. He claimed that most tokens introduced via initial coin offerings (ICOs) actually had no solid use to take advantage of.
