The problem with BTC vs. fiat price drops is not the investors losing money.
Good trader makes money shorting the asset as well.
The real issue lies with miners.
The level where BTC mining brings profit is around $6,000.
If the price stands below that level for long time, a lot of miners will be OOB.
The exception: Chinese mining companies are still profitable around $1500-$2000.
So problem solved?
No. The problem is blockchain is independent only when none is able to control more than 50% of miners.
And that could happen in China.

Your thoughts?

Sure it does. Even on decreasing price you can make profit by shorting it

It is like in Weimarer Republik tackling with hyperinflation. If you have money, buy anything you can. It's a bit late thought..

A lot of guys consider crypto as simply spending fiat to buy BTC.
World of crypto is much more diverse. If you want to hodl why not buy XRP which is going to be used by international banks to settle transactions.

That is a very interesting comment about the discrepancy in mining costs leading to control of BTC. But even is Chinese miners held 50% they would not necessarily be all working together. If they did then it would need to be kept secret otherwise the interest in BTC would collapse. So achieving control would be extremely difficult in practice

Of course, it has! But will take time to make the ground. This is why, long term view is very much important.
