This forum needs more content. It's no secret, I'm not into crypto. I missed BTC at $40/USD and was going to 'wait until it went below $40/USD again' before buying it, and watched it go over $1,000 for the first time over the next several months. I also used to receive Bitcoin from a few customers around the same time, but spent it as I would any other currency and bought stuff from TigerDirect or Overstock.com or paid hosting bills with it. I never held it, and if I had, well, I'd be a little better off financially for it today to put it simply.
So, I feel like I missed the big Bitcoin explosion. But with so many other coins, do any offer anything that might prove to contribute to future big growth?
I've recently watched the price of OXEN more than double in the past month or so. My buddy chats me up about THETA often but I know little about it. Both of these seem unique in that they're tied relatively unique networks for content distribution or privacy.
Then you have the Brave pushed BAT. I don't particularly care for Brave, but if you ever get bored check out any Brave browser community online since most of the discussion is about BAT, and not the browser itself. But I get the feeling that any random coin probably has a vocal fan base behind it as well so the observation about BAT is likely meaningless.
Then you have the larger, more known coins. Monero, Litecoin, and Etherum. It seems that Monero is the new standard for actually private transactions and seems to be favored by some over BitCoin.
Anyhow, do any of these (in your opinion) have any chance of being the "next" BitCoin where you may see the price skyrocket in the next 2-5 years?
