It is commonly thought that we can generate a profit only when the market is in green. However, you can still make some earnings even when the market is down. Please take a look at some trading ways which can not only help you survive but give you the chance of earning money during the "storm"!

Make some money even when market is down.
Even if the general market is in a downtrend, there are still some ways to help you make a profit. Depending on your risk tolerance, you can bet on the overall market trend, anticipate micro trends, or just hold coins and earn passive income. With each method, there is a tradeoff between the risk and reward, and this depends on your ability to balance risk.

+ Shorting

Shorting, or short selling, is effectively the opposite of buying a coin and hoping for the price to increase. In a short sale, you borrow coins from the exchange and sell at the current price. Once you close your short position, you then have to buy back the same number of coins at the current price in order to give the exchange back the same volume of coins. Therefore, in a short sale, the most desirable situation is one in which you initiate the short position at a high price, and close your position at a low price, thus selling high and buying low. This technique is typically used to hedge portfolios and reduce risk, but can be a powerful tool when facing an extended downturn in the market. Shorting is somewhat risky as your losses are uncapped due to the price’s ability to go upward without bound; in a long position, your loss is capped at that of the price going to 0

+Swing Trading

Swing trading takes advantage of the short-term price movements in a coin’s chart rather than looking at the large macro trend. Within a confirmed upward or downward channel of price movement, there will always be small peaks and valleys in the price as it moves in that general direction. Experienced traders can thus make money off of the micro trends, buying the lows and selling the highs during a bear market. In this scenario, market volatility during crashes is the ideal situation as it provides the most number of useful local optima in the chart. In order to swing trade, you must become familiar with the various forms of technical analysis such as pattern formation, and indicators such as RSI. This is only recommended for people with a high risk tolerance and significant experience using technical analysis to analyze short-term movements.

+ Passive Income - If you have a lower risk tolerance and do not want to use more advanced trading methods, the next best thing is to hold onto coins that generate passive income regardless of market activity. There are many coins that can generate passive income, but the two main types are staking coins and exchange coins. Staking coins, in exchange for governing the network, provide additional coins for each coin used in the staking process. Expect somewhere between a consistent 5% to 10% annual return for staking in most coins. Some proof-of-stake variants, such as Ark’s DPoS, provide higher returns than more decentralized versions of staking. Exchange coins provide various benefits on exchanges such as reduced fees, and some, such as KuCoin’s, provide a form of profit-sharing in which a percent of exchange fees are returned to coin holders. The percent return from these coins is directly tied to volume, which may fluctuate, so it is difficult to ballpark. Staking coins are much more consistent and similar to dividends, whereas exchange coins are still speculative in that you are betting on the success of a particular exchange.

I agree with you about what you say in the post. But "Shorting" entries I really do not understand
