"Several exchanges in the industry fuel bubbles for a quick buck as well. If something starts to get momentum, including meme coins like DOGE or SHIB that don’t realistically have a substantial future, they promote those coins to their users, which can suck retail investors into buying the bubble top. Plus, a lot of Youtube and TikTok influencers pump small coins, and use their audience as exit liquidity." - Lyn Alden

Find out in Lyn Alden's Post-Mortem of the Crypto Crash.
