Still, Haun stated in an interview that:

“it’s not a bad time to deploy a crypto fund” regardless of these challenges. The excessive volatility is harking back to the primary two crypto funds I deployed. What I realized from these funds is that nice founders and nice initiatives are going to be in-built each cycle.”
