A classic crypto crash. The Valeant hype-train. The Nortel nightmare. The Washington Mutual ‘bargain’. The 2008 debacle. 

The memories send chills running down the spines of most investors. The rising panic as stocks fall, the desperate rush to sell, no value to be found anywhere. These are the stories that Bay Street and Wall Street whisper in the dead of night. Stories so grim, so full of fear, that many try to banish them from their minds.
