The recent Bearish trend in the crypto trade market has seen many alphas of the industry scum down to yearly lows, and a few new entrants have even vanished. One such aspiring product which has been mowed down by the recent bear attack is Dash Core Group (DCG).

The CEO assured the world that his startup could sustain itself in the aftermath of the November 15 fork (considered to be the catalyst for current trends). Ryan also ensured that his startup need not take any drastic measures like staff layoff to maintain its lifeline.

Ryan said that the company has an excellent capital buffer which is designed for the hard times like these. The analytics seems to back Ryan’s claims as the recent developments suggests booming DASH wallet download statistics, strong trading volume, and a recent successful network stress test Ryan has put out all these reasons on why his startup DASH is well prepared for the troubled times in a Medium article.
