Max Keiser: Altcoin Phenomenon Finished, Value Will Flow Into Bitcoin
Keiser said that with the development of the cryptocurrency space and adoption of Segregated Witness (Segwit) and the Lightning protocol, people began to better understand the store of value bitcoin offers, as well as scaling that would happen off chain. This, per Keiser, made crypto owners move their funds back into “the most secure chain [bitcoin].”
Keiser further projected that altcoins are going to pennies or even out of existence, because “all that cash is going to flow into bitcoin.” He reasoned that with bitcoin’s market current dominance 60% — which Keiser purports could go to 80%–90% — “the altcoin phenomenon is finished,” he stated.
