Price declines, hacks, regulatory clarity – Q2 held no shortage of surprise for the crypto market.

Exchanges faced hacks and several smaller blockchains were hit with attacks resulting in millions of lost funds. Further, prominent industry critics Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and Nouriel Roubini all launched new rounds of criticism in the media, with Buffet even going so far as to call bitcoin "rat poison squared."

But it wasn't all bad news. Goldman Sachs opened a bitcoin futures trading desk, renowned VC firm Andreessen Horowitz launched a $300 million crypto fund and regulatory certainty came as an SEC official declared bitcoin and ether, the market's two largest assets, aren't violating U.S. securities laws.

Still, the result of such volatility is that many people are questioning what direction the crypto-industry is headed.

In order to shed light on this, we invite you to take our latest State of Blockchain survey. Our short, anonymous survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. Questions range from asking your sentiment of the recent price dips to the latest software developments.

Responses will be published in our quarterly report. You will be providing insight to market movers and could shape the future of what is to come with your responses.
