This forum is for discussing foundational coins and tokens...

There are coins and tokens we regard as foundational, mostly because they have grown the fastest and have the biggest market cap. The grand daddy of them all is of course Bitcoin. Even though it's dominance appeared to peak at about 60%, it still maintains dominance among all other cryptos, now just above 30%.

Perhaps the best place to view a foundational cryptos is CoinMarketcp.com, it's an excellent resource for investors, where you can see the current market capitalization and drill down to all kinds of useful information, including its representative website.

Use this forum to talk about these assets, the markets they represent, any significant investable developments, and discussion on the usefulness and potential.

I have been observing the volatility and drops in Total Market Cap; #1 Bitcoin, and #3 Ripple both appear to retract in line with the drops in total market cap, whilst #2 Ethereum tends to retain it's total market cap significantly better.

At the time of recent December 2017 peak, when Bitcoin was over $260B market cap, Ripple was $90B and Ethereum was $110B.

Today we can see Bitcoin is $~200B, Ripple is $55B and Ethereum is $105B. 

Despite the rather significant drop in Total Market Cap and for #1 Bitcoin and #3 Ripple, we can see #2 Ethereum hold.

Furthermore, Ethereum has been steadily gaining in it's overall market cap and price since December 2017 (Price in December was $450, Today $1000). In the very the same period, Bitcoin has been experiencing a drop (although rather volatile with peaks and valleys) from it's $19,000 price peak in December, it has steadied itself closer to roughly $11,000 in January.

I am also trying to understand the reasons behind Ethereum's Support line during this December 2017-January 2018 period and the dynamics behind what a new #1 top coin may mean for the crypto future.

I have a suspicion we may see an altcoin (likely Ethereum) take majority market cap sometime this year, which may potentially generate a new resurgence on cryptos and create big hype in the process. I feel the Bitcoin itself has been tested (mostly due to it's high fees, transaction speed and impractical use) and I think although many people remain bullish on Crypto, just not as much on the Bitcoin as they once were.

I think Ripple's drop relative to Ethereum is a fundamental story. Ripple was complete hype with no real utility and overvalued by at least 100x. See my video. And Ethereum, is a platform coin, that hosts dozens, maybe hundreds of other coins. It has it's own problems in terms of technology, but it's relative value over Ripple is many orders of magnitude greater.

There is one coin I've been looking at that's out with the top 100 and that's storj which is a platform based on the decentralised storage. It is competing against the centralised cloud storage companies and has been growing slowly over the past year. It has made changes along the way by changing its coin to an ERC20. I think this would be a coin worth looking at for investing in long-term. Any thoughts would be welcomed.

Power Ledger looks like a good long term investment to me. It is based in Perth, Australia and is expanding into India and Europe. You can watch an overview video of this company at
