On a long enough timeline everyone becomes a Bitcoin maximalists…
How long you’ve been on the timeline and how intelligent you are will dictate your response to my statement.
Good point. Well said.
Exactly, f bcash’s camp!
THANK YOU… FINALLY someone said this. Crypto community bashing Bitcoin makes everyone involved like a bunch of children. If Bitcoin succeeds, it opens the way for every other coin out there. Stop it with the immature hate just because you’re holding bags of alts.
Bitcoin appears to be on the long term downtrend, a flippening will occur anytime in the future.
The fact that bitcoin is standing strong today is incredible and testament to its resilience. It’s paving the way for alts.
You are wisely right. Hope all the other guys understand that
This sub loves to hate on Bitcoin, because the majority of people here all found out about crypto within the past year and are holding heavy alt-coin bags. They also fail to realize that Bitcoin has been tried and tested for nearly a **decade**, and it is still going strong today with the most institutional/public acceptance and usage **by far**. And as we’ve seen time and time again, Bitcoin is the backbone of all crypto and (imo) the most resilient store of value the world has ever seen. Some of the shitcoins that people attempt to shill here are absolutely laughable.
Stating that we are still very early in the cryptocurrency space is not a bold statement. When compared to traditional markets, Bitcoin and all other blockchain projects have yet to even appear on the radar of most individuals of power and wealth.
but but… we must make another “lets decouple btc from alts because btc is dragging us down MIMIMIMI”-Post!
This is exactly right
I don’t know if this is a bear market
I think it is unfair to value other coins based on bitcoin, for this reason, I like decoupling. If bitcoin becomes “digital gold” it will keep its value, but there are many other projects which are closer to real world applications hence I dont think it’s fair to value them based on bitcoin
it costs billions of dollars a year to maintain the bitcoin network, and the higher the price of bitcoin the more electricity it will use. I’ll bash it if I want to bash it.
This sub is the home of the alt-coin kiddy pool. Where retards who discovered crypto last year think anything with a “blockchain” like Tron, provides the same benefits of the Bitcoin blockchain. These morons bash the only truly immutable blockchain and give life to shitcoins and ICO scams. Bitcoin is the best application of blockchain, the only crypto that has provides financial freedom, the only crypto that banks are threatened by… and yet, these dumbasses act as useful idiots for the banks when they try to bash Bitcoin. I love it when the idiots here blame Bitcoin when their shitcoins plummet
Who is doing that other than fanboys of other crypto? I don’t anyone serious about crypto, blockchain, and decentralization have this view of bitcoin.
Yeah I stopped using Yahoo years ago. Fuck Bitcoin.
Even a lukewarm news story can cause the market to plummet farther than any traditional market could stomach.
The price will be going up and down with Bitcoin, or without it. The real problem that I have with this “coupling” is when Bitcoin becomes dysfunctional, but we still have to use it, because it has the widest adoption among merchants and exchanges. We should be increasing adoption of our other cryptos to the point where a problem in any single crypto doesn’t affect users of other cryptos.
“Don’t call out our drawbacks because then people will think badly of us and that’s bad for the whole market because we are the brand ambassador for crypto.” I won’t push your agenda for short term gains. It will be better when people realize Bitcoin doesn’t deserve the #1 spot and things are able to decouple. Which by the way, won’t happen ‘naturally.’ It will require effort to set up more fiat pairings. Bitcoin did an extraordinary thing in paving the way for this whole space, but it simply can’t compete with next generation projects.
Just my opinion: Bitcoin does not perform as it was intended to. 30-50$ fees and slow transaction speed have basically made bitcoin a game for those with a lot of money. As a casual investor, I don’t use or buy bitcoin. Other alts have already improved the formula and I would never use Bitcoin to bridge me from fiat to other alts I own unless I absolutely had no other options.
Btc will loose its dominance to ALTs in 2018 onwards. ALTs will give you much more profits as compared to BTC or even king coins like ETH NEO LTC.
HODL solid ALTs and they won’t disappoint you:
ICX, TAU, NANO, CAN, RPX AND XRP are my favs
Actually i joined because of ethereum in january 2017. Bitcoin looked like a shit show and i still think it sucks as a currency
Some people will always enjoy throwing rocks at the throne. Its just a personality type. Its never going to go away, its useless trying to get people to stop really.
Everyone thinks that Fiat pair’s whit every Alt will do the job. But every fiat/alt pair dropped alongside bitcoin.
The real decoupling will come when the market is worth trillions, other Coins find their niche market and tokens have working products making profits to sustain the price.
I also agree, almost 100% of people coming into the space is thanks to Bitcoin.
Didnt even read the article but i feel like the title is well said.
>Bitcoin and its reputation is why money enters the crypto space.
When you make stupid blanket statements like that, they are almost guaranteed to be wrong. Crypto didn’t really take off until Ethereum and ERC20s arrived so it seems to be the complete opposite of what you are saying.
Au the contraire, my friend. I was bashing on Bitcoin DURING the bullrun. 50$ tx fees to be confirmed quickly? That was fucking attrocious and caused loss of adoption.
Most reputable flagship of blockchain tech is certanly Ethereum, not Bitcoin.
