I am a big believer in Bitcoin and the fairer world it builds block by block. Such a belief leads some to consider me a Bitcoin Maximalist.
In a sense, I am a Bitcoin Maximalist since I fundamentally believe that Bitcoin is, and will remain, superior to all Altcoins.
Bitcoin will be able to adapt thanks to the strength of its community and its unique characteristics will allow it to remain the king.
Nevertheless, this does not mean that I do not think that some Altcoins will have a role to play in the future.
Some Altcoins responding to real-world user issues will persist in the future and will come to play a role in addition to Bitcoin.
First of all, I am thinking in particular of Basic Attention Token, whose project to implement an Open Web model is very promising.
Brave Browser, which is at the heart of the Basic Attention Token project, is already an important success and the future looks very promising.
Its innovative advertising model that respects user privacy has a role to play in the future against Google.
Likewise, I think Nexo has a bright future ahead of it.
Nexo is an instant credit line platform in cryptocurrency. You deposit your assets in cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Litecoin, Nexo, …) within your Nexo account.
Once these assets are deposited, you instantly have a line of credit in fiat currency at your disposal without the need for any verification.
In the future, Nexo could evolve, and why not offering this type of credit line in Bitcoin directly for example.
Developed by Enjin, Enjin Coin is the cryptocurrency leader in Blockchain gaming.
Among the sectors that will be strongly impacted by massive adoption of Blockchain technology is the gaming industry.
Already having partnerships with Microsoft and Samsung, Enjin Coin has a bright future in its specific domain.
When the average person hears the word Blockchain or the word cryptocurrency, there is a 99% chance that they will immediately think of Bitcoin.
Since 2017, everyone has heard about Bitcoin at least once.
This gives Bitcoin an important advantage that allows it to have more and more fresh money coming into its network.
Behind Bitcoin, Ethereum is the most well-known cryptocurrency for the uninitiated.
Ethereum is the second cryptocurrency and has put forward the concept of smart contracts.
Ethereum is migrating to Proof-of-Stake as a consensus algorithm which will make its network more centralized.
This negative point is offset by the fact that the most promising cryptocurrencies are based on the Ethereum Blockchain.
By buying Ether tokens, you will indirectly benefit from the Alt Season.
Finally, Ethereum is currently at the heart of the decentralized finance movement (DeFi) which is set to continue to develop strongly in the future.
Here again, the success of DeFi will benefit Ethereum and will allow its Ether token to see its price rise sharply.
Apart from these few examples of specific cryptocurrencies, I think that 99% of current cryptocurrencies will tend towards zero in the future.
Cryptocurrencies that do not answer to real world user problems are the ones that will disappear in the future because without any real use, a cryptocurrency cannot survive in time.
