The majority of traditional reliable crypto exchanges doesn’t allow crypto short selling ( short-selling is when an investor borrows cryptos and immediately sells them, hoping he can scoop them up later at a lower price, return them to the lender and pocket the difference). Totally absurd during the 2018 extremely bearish market that have seen Bitcoin collapsing from 20 000$ to 5000$, a 75% drop in just 2 months! Again in November 2018 Bitcoin Cash collapsed from 600$ to 80$, an 85 % drop in just one week!
