‘I lost all my money’: Lessons from the crypto crash
This month’s crash in the value of cryptocurrencies has wiped out investments for people all over the world.

Scott Chipolina, the FT’s digital assets correspondent, and Ilan Solot, a partner at crypto group Tagus Capital, discuss what the future could hold for crypto as an asset class, what more could be done to protect consumers — and the steps investors can take to protect themselves.
