Are you saying you think the crypto market should have the same market cap as all US stocks? Cuz that seems pretty insane. I fail to see the relevance of that chart, as companies have revenues, cash flow etc. that can be measured. Whereas crypto only has demand as measured in the last traded price.

I didn't say anything. I just thought it was an interesting chart.

An interesting quote from Ronnie Moas (Ranked #241 out of 4,745 Analysts on TipRanks):

We currently have two hundred trillion dollars in the world tied up in stocks, cash, bonds and gold -- all of which are over-valued. As I have been stating for many months now -- I believe at least 2% of that 200 trillion dollars will find its way into cryptocurrency that will give the entire space a valuation of 4 trillion dollars. We hit 600 billion this morning … up from 500 billion just a few days ago. (EDIT: This was from 1 month ago and today's market cap is 541 billion, so his comparison is still in the ballpark.)

There would have to be a lot of stuff that needs to happen for his dream to become reality Crypto currencies would have to be accepted in exchange for real goods universally. The government would have to somehow recognize and regulate. Because if the government can't regulate and considers crypto some of kind of threat to their system, they might decide to make this whole area ILLEGAL. Then it won't be worth jack...

I'm looking for Bitcoin to lose ground to the contenders when this collapse ends and the market advance resumes.

I think the scalability problems of BitCoin are major (and a big problem unless a solution is developed) and the crypto market will be picking new horses for the next bull run.

Not exactly sure who (??) those strong horses will be in the next crypto bull run but I'm watching the field.

Anyone feel free to chime in with ideas.

Most ICO are being issued as a utility. Therefore it appears the security law would not be applicable.

The "utility" argument is a $500/hr feast for legal eagles and it's paid for by people who buy these "utility coins" with Dollars / Euros / whatever while those who create these critters are laughing all the way to the bank.
