    Downturn and bear market scared away alot of people. Especially the ones who got in late just chasing returns without knowing anything about any of it. It will never "be dead." But projects will fail and alot of them will go away.

    Iím not negitive yet but getting close... if I pulled all my money out a few weeks ago dangling my toes in the crypto market would have been a pretty big win with the money I took out a while back

    I think a lot of the junk coins are dying off, but I think there are some that will make a big come back.

    If you're not in the top 5, you're withering on the vine. Those have the hype and the sustainability.

    It's not dead, but there needs to be some news, and I think I heard it this morning. Kevin O'Leary talking about an ICO that is regulated by the SEC, and backed by physical assets. Something to do with a hotel chain. I think he said the ICO would be worth $400 million. It's meant to replace IPOs and does away with all the big banks and all the money thats involved with the IPO process. Would be a way for the little guy to get in at the beginning. If companies start doing this, it could be a turning point.

    At the G20 summit they just said they weren't going to regulate cryptos at this time so that should help.

    To much negative news and manipulation. Plus the tax deal has cut down the trading big time. I'm in the red so it's either ride it in the ditch or to the moon. I read something the other day that kind of made sense to me. Everybody keeps waiting for bitcoin to moon but really it already has and now its going back down. It's just on a bigger scale than all the other coins.

    I'm interested to see where the whole crypto scene goes in the next couple years. Is it going to be something that really changes the way our money is handled or is was it just a fad that is already dying out.

    I think it will clearly change the way money is handled, but, I don't think that means the value of Bitcoin or XRP or similar will be more or less.

    Still in it, remember still up gains from last year, regulation from government on trade, and negative news has a lot of people guessing themselves on investing in it. I personally moved into block like ETH, and NEO, still hold BIT an light for currency..

    Tron has all the potential in the world to do well if things stabilize
