The Crypto coins have massively dropped over the last few days, ironically they are touted as the safe haven, but traditional gold has done far better only dropping single digit %, while major cryptos lost around 50% over the last week.
I am not really a crypto coin enthusiast, the only thing I am interested in is it actually being used as practical use of money, rather than investment.
The great thing about market crashes is they tend to shake out all the old shit and allow it to be flushed away to be left with a cleaner slate, and also flush out fraudsters like Bernie Madoff etc.
To me, BitCoin as money is the shittest of them all, because it's slow and illiquid.
Stockmarket experts always say the best things to reliably trade for the sake of fairness and safety are markets that are the most liquid so you can get in and out fast.
So I have looked at the "major crypto coins" for the one that has done the most transactions and appear to be the most liquid and thus fair/reliable/fast, this to me is Ripple.
You can see it has fallen more than BitCoin etc, but that is simply because it is the most liquid/fast/fair coin.
I can't stress this sentence enough, in time, the cryptocoin that behaves the most like Ripple in terms of liquidity will be the most popular, simply because it is the most practical and least manipulable coin to use, in the end (but it will take years) the cryptocoin currency wars/popularity winner coin will be the one that offers the fairest and practical to use, that is something that is incredibly fast and incredibly liquid, anything else is scammy shit.
This "Tether" coin looks pretty good as well.
The way how BitCoin is still popular while being incredibly shit and impractical shows how long it's going to take before a practical/cheap/fast/liquid cryptocoin technology surfaces to the top, and then BitCoin can be forgotten old garbage and viewed as the same as MySpace/GeoCities/AOL/Napster etc, BitCoin will join MySpace it's just going to take time.
