Could you estimate time necessary to master altcoin development for a programmer who has good knowledge of c/c++? Is it worth to spend time for mastering altcoin development?

Cloning an altcoin is trivial and doesn't require knowledge of c/c++ because all the code is already written.
Just tweak some parameters and you have a brand new coin.

True developmnet, specifically mastering it, doesn't require knowledge of any specific language. The language
is just a tool and the job usually determines the appropriate tool to use.

Cryptography, multithreading, networking, gui, distributed processing, etc are the programming skills you need
to master altcoin development.

Truth.

And to truly 'master' it probably takes years.

Thats too vague, too

If you look how many various coins exist and what they're supposed to do, it cover almost
any possible kind of software development. Just take a look at maidsafe, for example
