It's October, 2017. Why would anyone expect any different from Bitcoin, Etherium, LiteCoin and the rest of the digital currency crew? I mean, one day China wants nothing to do with it, then a few weeks later, think otherwise. Why think otherwise unless it seems cryptocurrency truly is the wave of the future. The "new" economy. And why not? IRA's are now being built on alt-coins. This ain't your grandpappy's retirement. Nah-this is a whole new frontier because eventually, millennials will need to retire and they too will need something substantial to fall back on. So will our children, who are small now and haven't a clue what to expect.
As long as ICO's continue to become as mainstream as Kickstarter projects and as long as they will continue to be funded, strap in--no one's going anywhere. Even the smaller, lesser-known alt-coins are gaining momentum. Other nations have citizens who buy houses in Bitcoin. It's getting to be commonplace.
