Lee made the statement during an interview with CNBC on June 20 saying that price dips are natural reaction of people to such news because no one wants to lose their money.

Lee however said that hack of exchanges does not mean that something is wrong with the cryptocurrency stolen or the ecosystem in general, comparing the scenario as when robbers rob banks saying, such heists should not affect the price of gold.

“If the exchange does not protect the coins well enough and gets hacked, it doesn’t really change the fundamentals of the coin they are protecting.” He said.
