Title: What would happen if another cryptocurrency took Bitcoins place in Market Cap?
Post by: 8CommaClub on February 22, 2018, 07:05:58 PM
So what do you think would happen if another Cryptocurrency (Example Monero / Ethereum etc) were to take Bitcoins spot as first in market cap?

Then there would be a new "KING" if that thing do happen on seeing bitcoin is being overtaken by other altcoins in the market.It would surely be a record and lots of people would be shocked specially to those who hardly believe on bitcoin but we do all know this thing is really hard to achieve,its possible but would really takes time and consideration on the community on switching out into a new coin rather than on bitcoin itself.

So lets say theoretically , People saw Bitcoin and saw its many problems involving scalability etc , and dumped all of their BTC for whatever crypto... Say they took the entire market cap of BTC into ETH or XMR...

Wouldn't it be time for people to say goodbye to BTC and accept a new King?

In that case, that coin would really have a good potential. I cannot see any new coin that can replace bitcoin yet. As we all know, a lot of people already trusted bitcoin and they consider it as the main currency because it's the first cryptocurrency to become very successful and bring convenience to everyone.

Well, it really is something that can happen and although I do not think that it can happen any time soon it really can happen. And it is just right to think about what might happen when it really does become reality.

If this happens, I think that it will really make a lot of bitcoin supporters lose money. But other than that, I really cannot see any other problems. Well, maybe if that happens there would be a huge dump in all crypto amd may take a long time before it recovers. But who knows? Oh well, we'll know when it happens. Lol.

then the currency would have more attention and conquer a huge community, bitcoin already has a huge community and the other currencies that are created receive altcoin name and that in itself already creates a certain disdain, as if that was not enough, the alcoin are in strong competition against each other which means that they will dispute the market limit between them leaving bitcoin as the leader

bitcoin has an anonymous creator that creates a sense of decentralization and at the same time makes people trust the currency, but other altcoins have their creators that are not anonymous and are centralized which in my opinion will make people not trust so much in the currency, based on my reasoning I do not believe people would dump their bitcoin to buy altcoin and that altcoin to become the new king

Such a situation won't come because the last time another crypto tried to take over bitcoin, the particular coin faced its worst dump ever later on. So if the price*supply of one crypto exceeds the total market capital of bitcoin (which won't happen at least for a few years) the marks will start reacting and once they start reacting we definitely can see a dump in the near future.

If another currency took over btc in m.cap right now, it would be big news and a surprise to allot of people, and it would be a big news to write about for many news agencies. This way, it would probably get allot of attention and pump even more by people that hadn't bought before, but bought when they saw the news report it. But if this was to happen in a recent time(1 year), I think it would drop and btc will keep its spot.

Now, I do not think there is any altcoin that can replace the bitcoin's position in the cryptocurrency market. Bitcoin always has a tremendous support community and its value, although volatile but stable, is the basis for evaluating other crypto coin. I believe in the next few years the value that bitcoin will have is huge because of its rarity.

It's nearly impossible but well anything could happened, also market capitalization aren't everything. When you see it stay for long time enough I think that time certain coin have a great functionality more than Bitcoin was. It's sounds dreamy but yeah that's what I think.

Yes there are altcoins that is possible to replace bitcoin. The ethereum and ripple, I think they can do it since bitcoin has a problem right now dealing with transaction fees. Investors may change their preference in investing in cryptocurrency and may the reason why ethereum and ripple can change the game.

Its difficult to imagine a scenario where an existing altcoin or fork achieves a higher market cap than bitcoin. Perhaps if a future alt were rolled out with significantly superior technical capabilities: greater transactions per second, higher security, better support for loans or assorted substantial improvements it might be possible for an alt to attain a higher market cap. The way things are now, it doesn't look as if there are serious contenders who are likely to dethrone bitcoin anytime soon.

If someday someone succeeds in building a better bitcoin which might be labeled a 2nd generation crypto currency in terms of it representing a noteworthy degree of improvement, then perhaps it could be a good thing if it embodied evolution, innovation and progress. It wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing or a negative if someone manages to improve on something that makes peoples lives better and empowers economies and world markets. Which could in turn elevate living standards and help decrease poverty and have other positive net effect.

I think Ethereum is already there in that it has quick confirmations and offers something bitcoin doesn't, which is smart contracts.

Ethereum is also gaining merchant adoption.

If it does take the #1 spot, things will be as now, just with the roles reversed. Bitcoin will continue to have it's die-hard fans, so it shouldn't have trouble maintaining the #2 position, perhaps building a niche for itself as digital gold.

The problem with ETH is that it depends on BTC. If BTC fails at any point you can expect a huge crash on all other crypto markets and the less real adoption the greater the crash. You could easily see it during the last BTC correction. There was a number of FUD news that targeted BTC and all markets suffered a hit. Coins like XRP that don't really have support and are based on the belief that they will be used by banks one day.
I'd be careful with putting huge money in ETH, because BTC has to succeed first to pave the way for altcoins.

Firstly this is very unlilely because of the market sharebof bitcoin and its huge popularity and large userbase backing.
However, if the amount of coins curculating in the market is considered, bitcoin will lead because of it being the first and foremost cryptocurremcy ever launched.

And if majority of users dumped bitcoins for any other currency, then that new currency will gain the hughest market share and speculatively gain value aswell because of the crisis of that particular coin because everyone would be buying it.

For me, nothing will change. The market is so unpredictable that we should get prepared to such change and never store all the eggs in one basket (I'm talking about crypto as investition).

The opinion that ETH depends on BCT is a fat lie. Please don't not make for yourself an idol from Bitcoin.

It will happen if people lose confidence over Bitcoin its dominance decrease every year so theres a possibility that other cryptocurrency will overtake its throne. If that happens it will bring positive effect to the market specially to the prices, some crypto will be less dependent over it.

Of course, the market has very promising currencies, but the fact that someone can replace bitcoin - it seems not real, at the moment, for sure. Let's not go so far ahead  ;)

Is its dominance decreasing or is the more adoption of crypto in general, it doesnt sound it but it is different I think?
there are more and more projects being created so they are going to attract more and more users and these currencies are all paired to BTC.
I know most people dont rate market cap but looking at bitcoin this time last the market cap was around $18,500,000,000
and today its around $174,000,000,000.

Ethereum has the most potential to surpass bitcoin's market cap and nothing else. This digital cryptocurrency goes from strength to strength. Ethereum will have the best long-term potential of any cryptocurrency though due to flexibility and smart contracts. And most ICO's backing it up, what could go wrong for ethereum?


Title: Re: What would happen if another cryptocurrency took Bitcoins place in Market Cap?

Then if the would have happened, we can expect the many developments of other alternate coins than those we already have in the market right now because many would believe if ethereum or other altcoins can rise above bitcoin then so can them. Many ICO's will be flurry in conducting business plan to attract many investors.

It will depend on why did this happened, if this is because of some sort of bug in the code of bitcoin we can expect to see a huge crash of the market where only the best coins will be able to survive, but if this is simply the result of a new and better coin surpassing bitcoin due to its superior technology then the transition will be smooth, bitcoin will still be valuable but not as much since it is clear that much of the money that is currently on bitcoin will move to this new coin.

I'm not entirely sure what this question is getting at. What exactly could happen, it's just a statistic, it doesn't really mean anything. Bitcoin could lose top spot for a number of reasons and the way the crypto market would be would change with each. Nothing all that spectacular would change though. Let's say ETH grows to overtake Bitcoin, it won't change anything.

Well to reach that state, that means that 3 things could have happened.

1) People decided to pull most of their money out of Bitcoin, so the evaluation of it goes down and so does the market cap, allowing for a new coin to come up.

2) More people decided to put their money into a new coin than there already is in Bitcoin, so the new coin rises above bitcoin in terms of market cap.

3) A mixture of both of the above.

In the case that a new currency is seen as the "main" one, it's likely that it'll end up being the one that moves into the future for a while. We haven't really seen any coins that have taken Bitcoin's place, so it's very hard to state what would happen as of now, but I think if a new coin comes up, Bitcoin will go very far down.

It depends on the next coin to be the KING. If the Ethereum overcome bitcoin, the alts under the ethereum will grow along it. If NEO then alts under it. Same process depends on the coin. There will a be a new famous investment and some bitcoin holders may panic sell to prevent lost.

Well, I don't think that Ethereum can overcome the value of bitcoin, since we are treating bitcoin as the mother of all cryptocurrency neither NEO. Ethereum has been here since 2014 and still its development is quite too low compared to what bitcoin has achieve during his early years.

I think slowly but surely other currencies like ETH, NEO or XRP will be catching up with Bitcoin if its slow transaction time is not dealt with. After closing the gap for a while will not be much of a surprise anymore when it is dethroned. Once that happens drops in BTC price will not drag the whole market down anymore

Disagree completely, I think there would be a complete shit show for a couple of weeks to months depending on how hard the Bitcoin maxmalists want to drag it out. In the end though, if that does happen it will be better for everybody involved here and for the world, because if there is a blockchain that is more secure, immutable, censorship resistant than Bitcoin than by all means show me today!

You are right, I have to admit. My point of view was long term, after the storm and the shitshow. I didn't focus on the short term. Thank you for pointing out my lack of precision. But I see that long term we basically agree.

Well, this idea is very difficult to achieve , especially in coming years because the king Bitcoin exceeds all currencies in many things ( Price, Market Cap, Volume..). So the most investors always choose Bitcoin as a best choice to develop their financial profitability. Furthermore, despite  that many governments tried to break it, but they always failed to achieve that goal, and always remains that currency at the top of the market, Although all the difficulties, Bitcoin always stays at the top of cryptocurrencies.
On the other hand , It is true that many currencies have evolved and progressed in a fast way ( like, Ethereum, Ripple, Cardano, Litecoin..) but  the problem that  this development is always limited. So it is very hard that someday, we'll see a  digital currency become better than Bitcoin.
 Everything is expected in the era of digital currencies so  if that happen ( Digital currency took Bitcoins place ), there will be a disappointment to many users but the only thing that will change is that most users will deal with that currency and it will be the new king.

I think it's really difficult to predict the immediate effects of such a scenario, much less the longer term repercussions (or benefits) of such an event. As pointed out by some very astute observers, it would take a convergence of several unlikely scenarios for it to have a chance to happen, most significant being that people lose confidence or see less value in Bitcoin while at the same time doing the opposite for an alternative cryptocurrency.

The world and their governments right now only recognise Bitcoin - perhaps a small corporate segment is familiar with Ether. I cannot see a scenario where Bitcoin declines while another rises up. For almost the entire world outside of our community, crypto and blockchain is Bitcoin.

We've been through different years and people are still talking about this idea of taking over bitcoin. But this is even better than the last time I've read about taking over the cryptocurrencies. If another coin will lead due to its market cap then so be it. That coin will be more popular and will start to lead out the crypto market so nothing new. For example with other coins, they are from the bottom and its now on the top 10. Nothing has changed, they are still volatile.

They have possibility there's an altcoin that replace bitcoin to the cyrpto world.  First for sure the market cap will decrease and it will take few months before it will increase again because for sure after bitcoin die they have 5-10 altcoins will fight to be number 1. But for sure the highest percentage to become bitcoin Is ETHEREUM because we know this coin is the number 2.

there would be confusions,wether to change  bitcoin and invest to another currency or remain to support bitcoin.we can not deny that investors are after for good profit so when another currency offers good value there is a tendency that they will grab it but on the other side they will be confuse also because of course they will consider the stability of the new currency....bitcoin is already there and i think no other currency would bet bitcoin.

I don't see why people keep discussing something that potentially might happen, while it has happened numerous times already. Yes, you read that well -- Bitcoin's market cap has been surpassed by a few coins already, and it meant absolutely nothing. Ripple did it twice, and a few utter absolute trash coins did so too. Why? Because of how many coins as circulating supply there is available. Don't forget that Ripple with its 99.99 billion total coin supply has an easy way to inflate its market cap like its nothing. Ripple's most recent all time high was +$3.20, which basically translates into a $320 billion market cap. If Ripple at some point becomes $10, then it will have a $1 trillion market cap, and so forth -- do the further calculation yourself with higher prices.

And do you see any problem in accepting of "new king"? It's sad but people somehow don't like to turn from bitcoin to another currency but to be real, we need develope, we don't have to stop on one thing. Is there anything better than bitcoin? Let's move on it. Will there be anything better than this "new king"? Move on better thing again.
Progress is must to have, there will happen only good things if another currency takes bitcoin's place because of it's better function.

There is always a possibility it could happen if the coin that will take over bitcoin would be able to get the trust of the cryptocommunity and will be use for its purpose. We may see bitcoin as a store of value now but we can see that some are using it as payment transaction so it still serve its purpose. It has the advantage of being the most popular cryptocurrency that's why the demand is still high and still holding its throne since the inception of cryptocurrency.

Eventually, another cryptocurrency may be able to take over its throne and if ever it would stay there for some time then we can accept the fact that bitcoin is not the king anymore but if it will happen because the coin is just hyped then eventually it will go down and bitcoin would still be the king. If it stays there then the exchanges would just update their pairings and add the latest king of crypto.

I think if that happens bitcoin value will drop and will no longer appreciate the way it did in the past years. The demand will surely divert into alts and time will come bitcoin will become an ordinary crypto.
I don't see any reason why bitcoin going down and replaced altcoins, bitcoin is bitcoin and altcoins are not the same in bitcoin those altcoins depends on bitcoin price so how would you say that there's somebody coins from altcoin replace that is impossible to happen.
But they are right we don't know what will happen for the future is there always whale but as of now i don't see any possibilities that there's one altcoin who replace bitcoin maybe next step on bitcoin but not replacing on it.

This is another question that people answers more on speculation ideas, actually other cryptocurrencies today are born when bitcoin is already operated. And if we try to look at the market system of all cryptocurrencies, on how the price of every cryptocurrency being moved, they are all act like a sister company, because when bitcoin down their value all kinds of crypto also follows. We cannot determine that there is a competition in the market about cryptocurrencies. (Correct  me if I'm doing a wrong statement.)

as of now i don't see any compitations around the market. 'cause some of the token/alt nowadays is on red due to the  bitcoin price which is climbing  along with ETH so perhaps if there's an alt that can overtake bitcoin i think ethereum is the one and no other alt.

I dont think anything astounding will happen except the thing that we will be frightened to see that our most favourite currency is not numbered second in the market cap. The prices for two to three different currency would be almost the same, I mean it will be above 10K for top three currency and that would be an amazing choice for us. The process might just speed up in terms of selling of the bitcoin. This is because as always people will want to trust the coin which is at the first place. So naturally speaking rest of the altcoins will not be affected much. Only major changes will occur at the first position.

Ethereum has the most potential to surpass bitcoin's market cap and nothing else. This digital cryptocurrency goes from strength to strength. Ethereum will have the best long-term potential of any cryptocurrency though due to flexibility and smart contracts. And most ICO's backing it up, what could go wrong for ethereum?
nothing could go wrong with ethereum.but for me its to early to predict,because as this moment and for the next  couple of years,bitcoin will hold supremacy and for sure many of you agreed on this.though posibility is indeed.but not this early

Of course all people in this crypto world will shocked if that happen. All we know Bitcoin is the King of CryptoCurrency  and her price was expensive, in the past many days, week, months or year the value of bitcoin rapidly rising than any Crypto. And if some altcoin beat the bitcoin and replace to the throne,  we should have to do is accept it.

Of course, your assumption is wrong because there might be a chance in future that bitcoin mark cap will cross by another coin. Till now, we don't have any clear which one will lead because as of now and for the next 25 years bitcoin is major currency.

In my view, the effect would largely depend on how long this bitcoin competitor is going to remain there and by how much it is going to exceed bitcoin's market cap. If it is due to some random event or purely by chance, nothing of importance will happen. On the other hand though, if the bitcoin killer comes to stay, people are going to invest in it and divest from bitcoin over time because most people are looking for profits only. That would likely mark the end of bitcoin as the king of crypto.

It does't really matter.

As of now Bitcoin reached the highest market cap yet. And because of that, many platforms open towards Bitcoin. And for this reason they knew that, they can make profit out of this. Soon different coin-based wallets emerged, various exchange, etc. people are starting to use it as soon as they've realized that Bitcoin is in a different level when it comes to investments and making profits. So it gave Bitcoin an even more wide range of possibilities, and it gained its reputation and become a trend all over the world. Thus, the price skyrocketed.

So if ever an Altcoin would ever be able to replace Bitcoin, it will just going to do the same loop. At first many people would doubt about the coin, accepting it that instantly, what if its a bubble, and the likes. But soon, if its price would go even higher or atleast in steady (that means this Altcoin is higher that the current price of Bitcoin), then people will again start taking advantage out of it, repeating itself.

I'm not entirely sure what this question is getting at. What exactly could happen, it's just a statistic, it doesn't really mean anything. Bitcoin could lose top spot for a number of reasons and the way the crypto market would be would change with each. Nothing all that spectacular would change though. Let's say ETH grows to overtake Bitcoin, it won't change anything.
It is never that simple, in the scenario you are bringing up there will not be much of a problem since bitcoin will just be surpassed by a strong competitor, but what if bitcoin lost that spot because some other occurrence, what if some kind of vulnerability was found or if the governments did a 51% attack or what if they incarcerated the devs, there are many scenarios in which bitcoin losing the first spot in market cap could come from something else than a market competitor surpassing it.

But can it be any other way? I mean losing the first spot will always mean succumbing to a competitor but that is not going to happen without some external factor playing out anyway. I think we should rather put these factors into at least 2 categories or groups. The first is for causes or events which affect only bitcoin and the other for things which affect all cryptocurrencies at once. Obviously, the first group of events should be preferred since there will be only victim with no one else hurt.

Yes it will not be a big issue, because up and down is always there in competition, we can see that people are also investing money in Etherium and other crytpo currencies, they have the expectation that the coin they have selected will compete with any other cypto currency and will overcome them, may be it  will happen in future, but it does not mean that it will bring such a big revolution in the market, i hope that it will be a normal process.

For some years I doubt anything could be very near to btc as it is being the original coin and as a reason today we have many other coins in the market. So may be their would be some coins which will get evolved over the years and may fill the gap between the bitcoin and 2nd coin in the market cap which far behind than the btc.

Are you looking at the price trend of the different altcoin in the market cap? It seems you are not because you came up with that kind of question. If you look closely at the market cap, you can see that almost all coins are price dependent on Bitcoin, meaning if Bitcoin's price is going down, the same will happen with the others and vice versa. So that is really hard to imagine given the circumstances.

The small percentage of the people would hold the Bitcoin further if that situation would happen. Bitcoin would be dumped in the end and this short taking of the Bitcoin off the throne would actually be the Bitcoin demise because it could never return to the first place.
First overtaking would mean more and more dumps with the impossibility for the Bitcoin to recover.
That situation is not going to happen because the Bitcoin established a strong base of the investors which are backing it flawlessly.

I think is not bad for someone who have an investment in bitcoin. Keep in mind, the price of coin in cryptocurrency pure is determined by supply and demand, if someday bitcoin is can be replaced it means the investor again that coin is a lot and beat bitcoin users or bitcoin investors move to coin that replaces bitcoin. The investors who have a intelligent thinking always see loopholes against potential coin for investment.

Yes that is right but i do not think that it will happen in near future, because in current time bitcoin is the main crypto currency where people are more interested to invest their money as compare to any other crytpo currency.

Yes for sure, it will remain as the first on the list, but I donít know if thatís forever, itís also possible that another cryptocurrency can take its place if it no longer offers what investors are expecting from it, just like many were complaining last year that the fees for transaction was too much and they did correct it this year, and we can all see that the fees is now very low.

Itís no longer fast as it used to be at first and we are still yet to see the lightening network that they promised us, but if that will introduce more fees to makes things costly, then I will recommend they ignore that project and focus on something more better.

I believe that any cryptocurrency that takes the number one position in the coinmarketcap list begins to control the market just as Bitcoin is doing now. I have noticed that most cryptocurrencies on the list usually moves accordingly with Bitcoin; whenever its price goes up, others follows and whenever the price starts to go down, others will follow too. But that doesnít that Bitcoin will come to an end, it will still be there competing for a better position just like the others are doing now.

Its normal, any cryptocurrency can actually replace bitcoins in the future, ethereum has the chance to replace bitcoins if most of the people will be preferring to invest on eth more than bitcoins demand and supply is always the answer for the price of cryptocurrency pump up.

That is not impossible to happen dude, there is so many cryptocurrencies out there that are much more useful than bitcoin, for example ethereum for its capability to hold erc20 tokens that are extremely useful for ico projects. And if that would happen it is very sad moments for those who have invested a lot on bitcoin, and the new era cryptocurrencies will born  8).

my view of who is in the top position besides bitcoin, I think it's no problem anyone can occupy the pucak position, either eth, monero, etc, because each altcoin has its own strategy to attract people's sympathy by gaining their trust, and I think it's better when it's not the pucak position inhabited by whom, but how can crypto always survive and become legal so we can work more comfortable and safe, hopefully useful and successful for all of us

The price of the supposed new top coin would determine the price of other cryptocurrencies in the coin market. This coin would have to have some extraordinary features aside blockchain. It's clear we haven't reached that stage yet.

This will be the a great news if someone from the altcoins will takeover bitcoin. Ethereum can do but they still need to fixed all flaws of their blockchain but so far they are on par with bitcoin. The integration of smart contract make them famous and considered an advanced on technology. Also other project like NEO can move forward but it will take time. If 5 yrs from now other project will take over, probably we can see a great future on cryptocurrency.

Nope it will not happen any time soon, and I think ethereum will not be able to take over bitcoin positions, users are more comfortable using bitcoin for their main assets, and ethereum is just an option for their investments other than bitcoin, maybe a few years to come, there will be other competitors

I doubt that there is any other cryptocurrency or altcoin that can supersede the bitcoin. At least not for the next 5-10 years. Of course there are many rising competitors like Ripple,  Litecoin and Ethereum.  But Bitcoin is historically the first and best crypto currency. Itís been just a few years since the bitcoin came into existence and thereís still a long way to go.

Its already happened, the capitalisation of Ripple far exceeds Bitcoin.   However most Ripple is stored with a few of the owners and will only pay out in future for their benefit.   However I choose to refer to that value in realising Ripple is likely far over valued vs its actual usage.

Little matters beyond actual usage, the prices are speculation but trade in Bitcoin done for FIAT or other goods is the largest true economy and there isnt crypto close to that.  Distribution of a coin is one indication of a real market

Well if any other coin took bitcoins place it may said as more users who truly support that coin. It will be difficult actually by other coin to replace bitcoins place as until now people are into use of bitcoin. In the future bitcoin for me is still the king and leading the cryptocurrency.

Ripple doesn't have a higher market cap than Bitcoin.

Bitcoin's market cap $107 billion.
Ripple's market cap (premine included) $48 billion.
Ethereum's market cap $46 billion.

IIRC, it happened once that Ripple actually surpassed Bitcoin's market cap, but that was during a pump that was never going to be sustainable. It has never meant anything, and people completely ignored it.

Ripple's volumes are quite on the lower side. The following coins with far lower market caps have higher volumes:

Litecoin.
Bcash.
Ethereum Classic.

All useless coins.

I agree that we really don't hold of what the future could be. Once the bitcoin max cap will reach, we really don't know what will happen next. Some people are saying that since there are no more to be mined, its price will go even higher and others also believe that the transaction fees will even be higher that time as well - but who knows?

I know many people here will like to see their favorite coin taking the spot of bitcoin at the top of the market cap but I'm not so sure they understand what that means, let us look at fiat, if the dollar was taken out of its spot as the most dominant coin then there will an economic crisis of such proportions that any crisis that came before it will seem like it is nothing and the same will happen to crypto if bitcoin lost its top spot.

I don't think anything will happen. Bitcoin has always been and will remain the first number. In order for the capitalization of any cryptocurrency to increase, huge money and coordinated actions are needed in the market of those who invest this money. But the most difficult thing is to keep the capital. It's difficult.
Yeah you are right. Now the trend is different and many people are putting their money in Altcoin because of the decreasing price of bitcoin and other reason is high price of bitcoin. Small investors are looking to Altcoin because Altcoin also possess big potential of growth and in the near future small coin investors will also earn big money due to increase in the price.

Where is the great news there? Taking over in terms of market cap does not mean it will be stable there forever unless there is no further development going on with bitcoin. Things can change, the cap can still fly back to bitcoin as the case may be, but we really do not need to deceive ourselves as this may not be something we can easily get to experience.

It is going to be like the battle of the titans to me and with the sentiment with bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market tending towards speculation only, which even makes it harder.

Before any other crypto currencies will over take bitcoin in terms of market cap will be as a result of more advanced technology that is to say such altcoin should be able to provide more advance means of carrying out transactions in the digital world and have a very big acceptability in the wider general public. Bitcoin as the mother coin has built a very solid foundation that will be hard to be overwritten.

In order for another crypto currency to take the place of bitcoin in CoinMarketCap, this requires that this coin has the highest level of capitalization. If this happens, then such a coin, like bitcoin, will have a dominant effect on another crypto currency. That is, such a coin will have to influence the price of another crypto currency. However, if the level of its capitalization will not be very different from the rest of the top in this table, there will apparently be no such dominance.

It will never be the same than before when bitcoin is the leader and the source of these altcoins movement.

There can be some waves of similarity that altcoins will now follow the path of the new crypto that is leading the market cap that took the place of bitcoin.

I can't think of some other things that can possibly happen but we don't have to think about it right now. Bitcoin is still in the state of being the best and worthy to be the king of this market.

We should really do follow those insights but people do always keep up on themselves that bitcoin would always be on the top thats why they do made or ask this kind of question out of their curiosity on what would possibly happen. Rankings do matter for some and anytime bitcoin can really be replaced into its spot therefore if that time comes then for sure number 1 coin is already the main trend on where it had been support by most of the community yet the dominance would be clearly seen.

Yes, in time it probably will. Right now its the biggest player in town and everyone that talks about cryptos will talk about Bitcoin in the first place. Ethereum is 2nd best known. The rest you only get to know about once you dive into this crazy world.

But having said that, Bitcoin is suffering from politics that has now resulted in a chain split. Try explaining to people which is the ' right' bitcoin. Or think about the number of scams that will pop up once everyone will try to get a piece of the crypto's. Bitcoin clones in name everywhere. (it may not even be actual blockchain assets, just numbers on a webpage. Your average person will not realize something is off). This will hurt the bitcoin brand, and can possibly lead to no one trusting the name bitcoin anymore.

Then there is utility, ease of use and integration into PoS systems. If Bitcoin cannot guarantee 3-second transaction and confirmation, ready to be used PoS software and completely obfuscate the whole 'blockchain' part (Hashed addresses, seeds etc), it will not achieve large penetration and use in retail.

I think bitcoin has become just another coin following the BCH/BTC split, and for now, only has its first mover advantage. Others are lined up with better specs and that are better suited for the different purposes.

Then there would be a new "KING" if that thing do happen on seeing bitcoin is being overtaken by other altcoins in the market.It would surely be a record and lots of people would be shocked specially to those who hardly believe on bitcoin but we do all know this thing is really hard to achieve,its possible but would really takes time and consideration on the community on switching out into a new coin rather than on bitcoin itself.

So lets say theoretically , People saw Bitcoin and saw its many problems involving scalability etc , and dumped all of their BTC for whatever crypto... Say they took the entire market cap of BTC into ETH or XMR...

Wouldn't it be time for people to say goodbye to BTC and accept a new King?
In this cryptocurrency world, coins and tokens were bound to compete each other depending on how strong they are to survive the struggle. People will surely choose  or prefer those that are mainstream though Bitcoin has already been adopted by some countries arround the world and it is so hard for the people to just forget, abandone or anything  related to that because we already are  using and supporting the king Bitcoin at all.

At least, letís even get to the stage where the market is not much speculative driven first, see how all the coins are doing on their own and how impactful they would be and let us not forget that development with bitcoin is definitely not going to halt, as that is the only reason it would be so easy for any coin to surpass it, but like I said, this is one high expectation.

So what do you think would happen if another Cryptocurrency (Example Monero / Ethereum etc) were to take Bitcoins spot as first in market cap?
It's absolutely there is a huge change in market trend. Maybe in that time we aren't depending on btc price anymore nor the entire market will be affected even bitcoin fall or rise. But isn't possible that bitcoin will loss it's crown as topmost coin in the market and give it into others, not even Ethereum will can have it.

then it will change a new position in the coinmarketcap and there will be a new era of the cryptocurrency. maybe bitcoin in that time will be stable and not too volatile like now and another coin which replaces bitcoin in the first position will lead all of the coins to the new era. meanwhile, bitcoin will compete with another commodity in the stock exchanges and will be transformed into something new.

it will be difficult to happen, but because of this we are wishing, then I think the market will be very crowded if there is another Cryptocurrency that takes the position of Bitcoin in coinmarcetcap. prices will overtake each other, and this will be very profitable for traders.

In my opinion nothing will happen. It's just matter of time for anything to be at top. Like in start no one knows about btc and gradually it got famous and reached at the price of 20K$. Some crypto currency has to replace BTC some day. Some obviously it will be ETH to replace BTC. Then everybody will be talking about eth and it will become more famous.

I do not think such a situation can happen, but if this happens, the market will be seriously affected first. But after a certain period of time, the market will continue to operate just as it does today. I do not think we will see any change if we look at this in terms of the parity because today many large and successful cryptocrrencies already have parallels with USD and other cryptocurrency types. I think the only change that can be seen at this point is the transaction volumes. Of course, changes in volume of this transaction will also be reflected positively in prices.

I could only think of one thing. That is change. The market may never be the same again. If it would happen other coins may now be dictating the market or maybe every coin will rise up againsts each other creating a cryptocurrency market that is varied and maybe most volatile.
The market you are describing is never going to happen, all fiat currencies use the dollars as their point of comparison and before that they used gold, so it is natural we have a single currency to price them all and bitcoin is the perfect choice not only is the oldest coin, it is the coin with the highest market cap and the coin in which everyone trust.

Right.I think this could happen but i know it will really take a hard time replacing bitcoin's place in the market.People have been used to bitcoin and have been benefited all its potentials so for sure if an altcoin had taken place its position,that coin must be very strong and promising that people have turn their backs to bitcoin.

For the moment no one coin can compete with bitcoin, even ethereum though. it seems that for long term bitcoin will still continue to be the main cryptocurrency, maybe there will come some more sophisticated coins, but the key is on the user? because actually the user is very comfortable using bitcoin right now...

If an altcoin will gonna replace bitcoin's spot in market cap, then, it would be marked in history where investors will surely get crazy to have at least 1 pc. of that kind of altcoin in his portfolio.  This phenomenon might happen but it takes a lot of time and gain a lot of confidence to the investors and market prior to achieving that.  In bitcoin part, it would be a great challenge to its investors on how to get back its spot in the market.

It is unlikely that any other currency will be able to stand in the first place instead of bitcoin. Bitcoin takes a solid first position and has too strong roots to go by the wayside. This is my personal opinion..

its not hard to accept this after all ETH is accepted to most merchants as well. and so ETH will be the BASE CURRENCY for most pairs in the exchanges. its not so hard to see this in exchanges after all we are already seeing ETH/* listed on exchanges.

I already know that Ethereum will surpass Bitcoin in the near future. I mean there are way more uses for Ethereum than on Bitcoin. I mean just converting alt coins to Bitcoins, you will need to convert them to Ethereum first. If that should happen, then people will have more Ethereum in their holdings than bitcoin.

One more important thing, ETH is the base of almost ICOs in 2 years nearly, so in the future, when these ICOs get listed, they will be good to trade with ETH pairs (to compare with ICO price).

maybe we can see in the future and will not see this in the short time because bitcoin still leading the cryptocurrency and all coins still adjust their price with bitcoin. maybe if there is a new technology which is better than blockchain technology then the new cryptocurrency will change the position of the cryptocurrency and the bitcoin position will change to that new crypto. but so far, I am not seeing the opportunity for another coin to replace bitcoin in the cryptocurrency.

No one knows the future, maybe the Bitcoin can be replaced by Monero or Ethereum, but to beat Bitcoin, they really need a long time. Bitcoin is the strongest and most reliable in crypto, it is more likely that Bitcoin will remain a crypto king rather than being displaced by another coin.

UuhmÖ. I donít really see anything that will happen. I think things will just continue as it is and Bitcoin will possibly retain the same price it was at before being taken over. And for another cryptocurrency to take over Bitcoin that means that the market cap of that cryptocurrency will have to be worth more than the current market cap for Bitcoin.

Bitcoinís market cap is too big and I donít see any cryptocurrency that can easily beat such market cap. Unless we will all decide together to quit investing Bitcoin and withdraw all our money from it and start investing it in other cryptocurrencies.

No youíre wrong, that Bitcoin price has fallen or maybe that it has been kicked out from the first doesnít mean thatís the end for it. It still continues, and if such a thing happens, that means there is still the chance that Bitcoin might still get back to the top as number one cryptocurrency.

Itís very difficult for any cryptocurrency to take Bitcoinís place as number one, not even these new cryptocurrencies that act like they have got what it takes, nope they donít. Have you ever check coinmarketcap to see the gap difference in market cap of BTC and others like ETH and BCH? So itís close to being impossible, but I know nothing is impossible lol.

This probably won't happen. Because even if people will notice that every other cryptocurrency is approaching bitcoin, they immediately begin to move into bicton not to let that happen.
In my opinion, keeping everything constant, it will act exactly like Bitcoin and people will invest in it as much as they do in Bitcoin. But the statement is a hypothetical one and not a realistic one. Among the crypto besides Bitcoin, only ETH looks a bit potential in the market and might pose a threat to Bitcoin in future but that will be long from now. Right now, we do not have a crypto to replace Bitcoin.

I have to agree on this because bitcoin is great coin, but we cannot be so sure about the future because some altcoins are making ways to improve their technology so investors will come to them and that can be a reason for them to beat bitcoin.

The price of the supposed new top coin would determine the price of other cryptocurrencies in the coin market. This coin would have to have some extraordinary features aside blockchain. It's clear we haven't reached that stage yet.
It does not necessarily mean that would happen. The fact that bitcoin as the highest market cap does not mean the reason why its movement control the market. It simply because it is the first, it has a huge support, it is tagged as a pair with most altcoins and this makes it hard for a lot of altcoins to stand on their own. Market cap to me is really not the judge of a support for a coin as some coins like XRP or EOS which is centralized can even easily be manipulated to that extent.

Anything will happen. I think some people or investors will immediately select the new one. But let us not be afraid of losing, instead we must strive hard in order for us not to be eliminated.
But definitely I will not select. Marketcap is a least significant measurement for me to choose one coin for longer investment in my view. No one is calculating it based on circulating coins even they consider only circulating, devs themselves own more number of coins. Then why we should consider it as an important criteria ?

It maybe happening that another cryptocurrency will come in the market, but i donít think so it will take place bitcoins but instead it will maybe add among other coins. So for me bitcoin is already before the new one get in, so it is not taking its place, it is only adding. So nothing to worry about bitcoins place replacement, because it will stand firm in its place.
I think nothing will happen if another coin takes place of bitcoin and become the top crypto in the market, but I think it will never happen because the market cap of bitcoin is so high that no other crypto can cross that level easily. People still invest their money in bitcoin mostly because they think if the price pump once they will make huge profits against their investment.

But it seems that if you look at the price, it seems to be difficult to compete with bitcoin prices and I think it takes quite a long time to be able to compete with it.

I think some of the altcoins are doing really well since most of them are backed by products and with time, one day, we are likely to see some of these things happening. Who knows this industry is full of surprises, everything has the ability to happen in here and If that happens one day, investors of that particular coin will be happy and more investors are likely to come into this industry as we are still battling to get more people in here.

I'd think there would be nothing different in the market. For one thing i think Ethereum being number one over Bitcoin is an effect. The one thing that would cause it is an outflow of buyers because of the huge number of projects under it. I just hope we see this cone true and eventually see a crypto currency be stable enough to be adopted.

The price of the supposed new top coin would determine the price of other cryptocurrencies in the coin market. This coin would have to have some extraordinary features aside blockchain. It's clear we haven't reached that stage yet.

Every day in the whole world I created many new altcoins. To study more of them it needs much time. But I don't think that some green will get bitcoins place.

I think that nothing will be changed. Someone took first place bitcoin took second and go on. People still will start investing into crypto market in Bitcoin will be on the second place.

This will be the a great news if someone from the altcoins will takeover bitcoin. Ethereum can do but they still need to fixed all flaws of their blockchain but so far they are on par with bitcoin. The integration of smart contract make them famous and considered an advanced on technology. Also other project like NEO can move forward but it will take time. If 5 yrs from now other project will take over, probably we can see a great future on cryptocurrency.

Nope it will not happen any time soon, and I think ethereum will not be able to take over bitcoin positions, users are more comfortable using bitcoin for their main assets, and ethereum is just an option for their investments other than bitcoin, maybe a few years to come, there will be other competitors

I am not even sure it would happen. Probably in a long term as you have mentioned, but until we start seeing bitcoin and altcoins having real life usage and the market of each coin growing based on its demand for that usage are we really going to see the test of power in terms of market capitalization and in this case, a lot of coins and tokens are already standing on their own.
Asides that, I am not sure this is one thing we really want to be considering at all and even at that, bitcoin still will keep standing a better chance.

Wouldn't it be time for people to say goodbye to BTC and accept a new King?
If ever the dumped you're talking about happen that will definitely affect the market and will cause the market to crash. As you can see the price of every cryptos are proportional to bitcoin so when the dumped happened the price of bitcoin will go down and so the other cryptos.

Good point right there, dumping btc means dumping majority of the alts as well, because btc has been the main basis of their respective value in the market.
I dont see any reasons why the btc will be dethroned by another coin/token. For the next 10 years btc still sits atop of all cryptocurrency.
One reason why alts cant take over the top spot, because when a certain alt are about to overtake btc (im sure the price will increase in a good percentage) that's where dumping takes place.

I think it is not a big deal for me since they are just all cryptocurrency and their purpose is only one. Though they have differences in the platform, their goal is to give a decentralized and digital transaction. However, it is impossible right now for the ethereum and monero to extend their sovereignty up to the first and dethrone the bitcoin since BTC upholds half of the cryptocurrency volume.

I agree with you.

Anything will happen. I think some people or investors will immediately select the new one. But let us not be afraid of losing, instead we must strive hard in order for us not to be eliminated.
impossible is nothing in crytpocurrency. while altcoin take bitcoin place,it make cryptomarket more stable and heath.bitcoin dominant will reduce and make other coins more valuable.
You are right that there are limitless possibilities but how do you think is it going to happen? How can you say that altcoin can replace Bitcoin despite knowing the facts that Bitcoin is having the largest market cap and has been ruling since it was introduced. If you think Bitcoin will be replaced by another coin just because it has a volatile price, that is a wrong base to decide the future.

Maybe the coin will be a pair in all cryptocurrencies, bitcoin will also decrease in value, bitcoin is now more an asset because its value is very high when compared to other cryptocurrency, then I think if bitcoin down position in CMC this will be a bad thing for the bitcoin holder itself, I think if it happens it will decrease interest in bitcoin and vice versa if there is altcoin which shifts the position of bitcoin then the altcoin will have the highest value of all crypto.

If the other crypto currency takes the first place in the CoinMarketCap table, this will mean that this coin has moved ahead in terms of the level of capitalization. It will change that bitcoin will no longer dominate the price over other types of crypto currency. At the same time, this new coin will not be short of capitalization for such dominance. That is, the dominant coin will not be and the crypto currency market will, at last. normally develop. I think in general it will be good.

If any of cryptocurrency takes first place in CoinMarketCap table, there are two possibilities. If this coin will also have a significant level of capitalization with respect to other types of cryptocurrency, this coin will carry a price dominance over the rest of cryptocurrency. If the capitalization level not much will outperform other coins, the price of cryptocurrency market will be relatively free, and I would like to see both at the same time behave coins and tokens. I think this will be a real crypto currency market.

Well, it would still be fine as long as the presence of bitcoin was there. Bitcoin is the first decentralized cryptocurrency created last 2009. This is the basis for emerging other cryptos over the internet. So, no worries if another coin takes the place of bitcoin in coinmarketcap as long as bitcoin's purpose is still there being a digital money, an alternative currency for our fiat money.

This is true. But just like in economy there is competition. One may rise and the other may go down. But it is better for the market if the bitcoin stays at number amd stay being the king of all coins because it is the reason why more people uses cryptocurrency . But if it happens, then so be it. People is good at accepting changes.

Well the question is what if one of them does? Would it be bad for the market? I don't think so. If another coin displaces btc and the top coin, that probably means that btc's popularity dwindled already and a certain coin rose in ranks and acceptance.

If this happens, then such a coin, like bitcoin, will have a dominant effect on another crypto currency. That is, such a coin will have to influence the price of another crypto currency.

If ever it did happen, which is improbable by the way, bitcoin will still surpass them at some point since ETH is not built for payments outside of its system and Monero is just creepy with all the extreme secrecy and anonymity.

At least not for the next 5-10 years. Of course there are many rising competitors like Ripple,  Litecoin and Ethereum.  But Bitcoin is historically the first and best crypto currency. Itís been just a few years since the bitcoin came into existence and thereís still a long way to go.

I think its very normal if others coin replace bitcoin as biggest market cap value. I am believe soon or later that will happen because bitcoin only have 21 million supply and others coin have more supply. But in price, i think bitcoin still valueable than others

It is difficult to make that happen, as the whole market depends on bitcoin. bitcoin is a measure of the value of a coin altcoin. Bitcoin is more popular than any altcoin and I still think bitcoin will stand up to the king's position of crypto.

Then there would be a new "KING" if that thing do happen on seeing bitcoin is being overtaken by other altcoins in the market.It would surely be a record and lots of people would be shocked specially to those who hardly believe on bitcoin but we do all know this thing is really hard to achieve,its possible but would really takes time and consideration on the community on switching out into a new coin rather than on bitcoin itself.

I agree. If that would happen, it would just create a market shift, and more and more people would focus their transactions on that new coin that will take over Bitcoin's place. I mean, people would always come after the top coin in the market because it always has more to offer as supposed to those that are under it. However, it wouldn't be that easy to do since the thing about cryptocurrencies is that Bitcoin, being the pioneer coin, has all the advantages in terms of popularity and value, which makes it really hard to dethrone it.

At the current level of cyrpto adoption this is simply impossible. If Bitcoin, the most trusted cryptocurrency, fails then all the other cryptos will fail as well. Maybe in the far far future, when Bitcoin will be used by hundreds of millions of people, and, say, Stellar will be used and trusted by approximately the same amount, the situation ŗ la  "The King is Dead Ė Long Live the new King!", as some posters suggest, will be possible, but not at this point.

That means something went wrong and it might be hurting all of us. I would rather bitcoin go up and something going even higher but for this scenario it doesn't look like that would happen.

 A lot of coins in the market can surpass bitcoin when it comes to potential and use but bitcoin's popularity and it's reputation as the coin that started it all will most likely secure it's spot in the top. It would likely remain there for a good number of years more until crypto becomes mainstream.

If bitcoin cedes its first place in the CoinMarketCap table, a lot will change. First of all, if the coin that won first place instead of bitcoin does not have a very high degree of capitalization, as now bitcoin, then this coin can not dominate the price over other types of crypto currency, as now bitcoin does. Then each coin and token will have its own pricing, which will contribute to the rapid development of the crypto-currency market. Now, in fact, bitcoin constrains such development. This is especially evident now, when exactly bitcoin fell in price at the beginning of this year and therefore all the Crypto currency has been in decline for a year.

Let's stop making with those IFs because it's weird to have that discussion because we know what are the facts in crypto's. No matter on how many altcoins are there's no any other altcoin that can easily replace bitcoin.

No chance! for now and in the next few years bitcoin will continue to dominate the market, bitcoin dominates more than 50% of the marketcap in the market, and will continue to dominate at any time, developers will continue to make bitcoin in line with the times, so I don't think there is a crypto that will replace bitcoin..

For it, you should compare the volume, demand and price for everything. You will get your answers yourself. Yes it can be the case after a lot of years because even bitcoins took a lot of years to reach at this point. As we compared other coins which you mentioned like monero, etc we can see that even those coins are much potential and can really have huge profits ahead so investing into those coins to are much profitable and is ind emand but the price for those coins is comparitively low than bitcoins. Perhaps those coins need a lot of years to go through and get on top of the market cap. Bitcoins are considered as the mother coin of all other major coins and also it is the oldest crypto-currency ever.

I don't think it has any effect, because from what I see now that the average all cryptocurrencies in circulation are independent cryptocurrencies. For example, the price of Ethereum/Bitcoin is very far compared to the price of Ethereum/Bitcoin in 2017, that means the price of Ethereum is not influenced by Bitcoin, as well as some coins in the top 100, most of which are independent coins, CMIIW

Maybe the one capable of taking over is ethereum. But it's almost impossible, so I think it still takes a long time to take the throne. Because even though there are capable ones, it remains difficult too. Because bitcoin is very strong with its potential. And maybe other coins will only follow bitcoin. But if one day someone takes over, maybe the cryptocurrency will start again. That's all I think if someone replaces bitcoin.

Well there is nothing out there in the crypto market that is impossible. The revival of ETH can again pose a threat to the Bitcoin in long run like it did few months ago.

This is just because of the pace with which ETH was growing. Right now, I do not see any other coin so advanced to reach Bitcoin any time sooner except ETH again and Litecoin. Because these altcoin have gotten great potential in long run and we might see them growing high like Bitcoin. However it will take long time.

Nothing will happen except that the name of the top coin will be different but it is unlikely any of the current coins can take that spot out of bitcoin because they do not really bring anything that is revolutionary to the market to take that position away, we will need a completely different concept for that to happen and I am not sure if I am going to see it.

This case is already interesting in that if a cryptocurrency that takes the place of Bitcoin does not have too large a level of capitalization, that is, its capitalization does not differ too much from the level of capitalization of the lower coins in the table, then most likely such a new cryptocurrency leader cannot have a tough price dominance over other types of cryptocurrency, as Bitcoin is doing now. It is possible that then the cryptocurrency can develop more freely.

People that got involved in blockchain technology, because of bitcoin, and werenít just trading bitcoin will have learned quite a bit about blockchain, and vaporized investments.
