Just a feeling I have.
I do feel that the big ones will stay but these others are on shaky ground.

I could be wrong. Hell, I was talked into bitcoin years ago.

Sure the market crashed in 2008 but it didn't go to zero and it's up huge since then if you bought more instead of panicking. That's because the stock market is backed up by real companies with real profits. Big difference from crypto currency. We've already had some bitcoin exchanges go belly-up with all of the investors losing all of their money forever. Russian hackers did it I believe.

I think part of the reason why the speed goes in and out is because of the massive influx of new users due to other exchanges being down.

I wonder why it doesn't have ICON? It's missing TRON also. Meh. Binance is also later to some coins, such as XRB and a few others, but that's because they charge a good amount of $ to be listed IIRC. Not sure if KUCoin does the same.

Honestly, I think ICON keeps on going up for the foreseeable future, but that's just speculation on my part and what I've read / watched about it.

yeah the new traffic probably has a lot to do with it but even then kucoin slow just seems slower than other exchanges' slow lol. It gets the job done though.


i agree with you on ICON. it'd say it's biggest potential is as a long play.

TRON might have potential I'm not ready for it yet tho, gotta research more on the founder's vaunted connections (i hear he's friends with Jack Ma of Ali Baba but dont know if they are actually going to partner) as well as the political climate of China

There are cryptos that fit this criteria, some will inevitably replace the "Googles" , "Amazons", and even the internet that we all know.

Any good alternatives to coinbase? For some reason it won't let me link my debit card and I really don't wanna wait a week to transfer money from my bank account.
