TL;DR: The Crypto Hustle With Eléonore Blanc presents its fifth episode. We delve into the subject of Bitcoin and mental health. It’s not a subject too many want to discuss, and for good reason. But it’s real. The cycles of ups, high-highs, and downs, low-lows, have an impact on our lives in profound ways.

Surviving Bitcoin Cycles of Mental Health

When bitcoin markets are moving upward, when the price of the project you’re most closely associated is booming, all is well. The world is your oyster. Skys are blue. All smiles. As reality sets in and there is the inevitable correction, cognitive dissonance creeps into our minds. We don’t want to face what is happening, the impossible: maybe we were wrong.


Don’t feel bad. We’ve all gone through it. Some of the most successful veterans in the space have been down and out. If you’re around long enough, cryptocurrency humbles. It takes all that optimism and hope and crushes it into a fine powder. It’s easy to be cynical.

In this episode, Eléonore Blanc takes a brave chance. She confronts her fears, her depression, and failures … in public. She’s unafraid to laugh at herself. She’s allowing herself to be vulnerable as a way to encourage others through their own tough times. It’s an important and fun listen.
