To be expected

The Fed is shrinking the money supply, and interest rates are going up. When they could easily borrow money at almost zero interest it was a lot easier funding speculative startups. Even if you know 90% will fail, if one is a winner with a 20x return you still double your money. Now the interest costs eat into that significantly, and they have to be more picky about who they fund.
