change comes slowly ,and people tend to stick to what they know and understand.in reality people are scared of change so until it gives reason beyond doubt ,most people will stay by what they know and has proven to meet their needs and wants.even though there might be a market monopoly out there i think it will be like this for as long as both parties (customers and service providers) are being satisfied .

Bitcoin has a long history, so it has a large community, fact is also bitcoin is not perfect and its development hasn´t evolved much since it´s beginning, and these maintainers of the ledgers and developers sometimes wants some advancement in the bitcoin, when they do not come to an agreement how will they handle some change in the actual system they promote a fork, which means they will use the base ledger history and from a determined point (block) they will follow their own way with the supposed changes they would like to have seen in the bitcoin, but there was not  a consensus about it.

Why is Bitcoin the predominant one among different forks, such as Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin SegWit2X?

Is it because Bitcoin is the most original one? ....

Because there are hundreds or thousands of Elvis impersonators.

But there's only ONE Elvis Presley.

Bitcoin is the original coin created by satoshi.
Other coins like BCH and others are just an act of creating clones of bitcoin by hard forking and claiming to be the original bitcoin.
But segwit 2x would definitely create some serious issues as it has majority miner support and it may replace the legacy bitcoin.If it does not has enough support,then another coin bitcoin segwit 2x would be created.
It has even support of more companies related to bitcoin.

How do you determine which one is original BTC and which one is clone? In case of BTC/BCH there were two identical blockchains. And even developers splitted to two different groups.

Only thing, that made it being "original BTC" was, that one blockchain contiuend under original BTC name, another one under new name. But they were identical. Same will go for a new hardfork.
That is incorrect, the devs are all of them following the same vision, many people try to use some definition that suits them but it is very simple the original bitcoin is the one that did not fork, the miners were the ones to fork because they are not happy with the way things have turned up and they decided to create a separate project so there is no doubt that BTC is the original coin and BCH a cheap clone.

@The_Dark_Knight: So what is the definition you'd like to see used:

1. The original chain is the one that does not make backwards-incompatible changes to their source code, or:
2. The original chain is the one that is supported by (the majority of) the current core developers.


For Bitcoin, we might use (1) or possibly either one, but for Ethereum, it is very clear that (2) has happened in the past with the big DAO-fork (resulting in Ethereum Classic).

Everybody has their own way of wanting Bitcoin to work. It is not updated as much as it should be and people try to capitalize off of this by forking.

Looking for the next great investment

They can fork the source code not the chain.

The most possible reason is that forking BTC will give them most profits.

Probably because it's most accepted by community.  With regards to forks, satoshi had a solution:  The chain with the most work done on them should be the predominate one.

BTC has by far, the most work (PoW) done on it.  The problem with this is that - the other forks are still having some value and as a result, are still active chains.

This is very fracturing for the community.  They should stop the forkings
