I wander if in the near future some tokens or coins can fusion together...like for example in the stock markets or acquisitions, when big holdings buy other companies or when there's a fusion of 2 companies into a bigger one...

Do you think it is going to happen also in the crypto ecosystem?

That might start a new trend and this idea might just happen. Cryptocurrency forks are happening because they want to create new tokens or coins that is still based on the initial Blockchain but wants to create another set of Blockchain so they can utilize this technology. If they start fusing tokens which might work, that will be revolutionizing because they want to fuse Blockchain technologies and they can apply it anywhere they want. There will be mixed platforms with good ideas and that might help the cryptocurrency industry grow.

Do you think it is going to happen also in the crypto ecosystem?

This is a really interesting thought because the way I see it, crypto is at such an early stage that we don't see many coins that are targeting the same audience. Soon enough, given that crypto currency gets big enough, if there's competition for the same markets, then it makes sense that one coin can aquire the other. The only issue is that there will have to be some type of technology to make sure that people get the amount of the merged coin too. The issue comes from the fact that exchanges don't carry every coin, they carry some coins each.

It's unlikely because there is no way to fuse blockchains. You can do forks (creating two new chains) but as far as I know, you can't merge two chains into one.

yes, this is the point, and of course it is going to be possible in a future context in which adoption is growing and a fusion between blockchains o project can make sense, it seems to me that it wold be in a middle future therm but who knows.....maybe in two or tree years adoption will be massive and fusions will be necessary Smiley

It has not happened yet that I know, and due to the way the blockchain technology is concieved, it is unlikely that it could happen. There are some projects such as Polkadot that will try to make communication among chains possible, and that would be similar to a merge.

A far better example is the EURO.
A new currency that replaced the mark, the frank, the lira and many others.

But I don't see it happening in the crypto world.
Because on of the coins would have to make a hardfork to change the protocol to match the other and the other another fork to absorb the blockchain.

Most likely it will end up with 3 coins instead of 2 (the original A and B and the fused AB)

Well, the idea is not impossible and it is quite interesting as well. It will be the some as the merging of two companies to better cater customers and services as well. If this happen to crypto and both ICO combined their works, it only means big potential and growth on the market. The thing is, it won't be that easy.

It’s hard to imagine how this can take place from a technical standpoint. What if one token has a larger circulating supply than the other? How would you reconcile the programming behind each of them. I’m not sure how all that would work behind the scenes.

I guess anything is possible but a more likely scenario is that one coin gets abandoned and the development team joins the development team of another coin to make it better. Or maybe a coins swap could be done with the abandoned coin.

Abandoned coin will revive again. The thing here is people wanted to merge in blockchain because the transparency is there and consider it that the mainstream media wants everything to be united as one but it takes time to do that. Cryptocurrency right now is an early stage and it won't hard for them to kill the vibes of crypto. There's a saying that if you can't beat them join them or embrace it!

That is an interesting idea, fusing two coins seems impossible but to create a new blockchain in top of the other two seems like an easier approach, however it seems unlikely, after all when two companies merge there are two CEO making the decisions, who is going to make the decision to fuse two coins, the developers, the miners or the user base.

It could be possible if the two parties would coordinate.  In the same time it would be necessary for them to fuse it.  But from the maintime many would think about it first.

its possible, but they must unite their ideas, vision, or they can use third party to  do it.

That's possible if that some token(or let's just say One company) sells the product or the market to other token owner(or other company) then I think they make a big fusion but still the owner are make it as like it is in the name of his (token) its like even he buy that token and there is fusion but still the name of his token or company are still the one who conquer that.

This seems very possible if two or more ICO's developing the other crypto coins start merging or constituted a lawful partnership that would required their alternate coins to become as one with combining of their unique features that will bring a blast on the market trend of cryptocurrency in our world.

How would two chains fork to a new chain? Both protocols change to the same? How would wallets deal with the historical chains? You would need a wallet that recognised coins sent on both the previous chains. In order words a wallet that recognised historical coins on two separate distributed ledgers.

Fusion together of two coins in the future is impossible for me  because every coins and platform has different way of scheme,and different  contract address they introduce to the exchange  trading site's,and it can give's conflict to all investment traders.Fusion of two companies to make a bigger one altcoins that maybe happen if there's aggrement both the two companies and the blockchain make this kind of deal but for me the decision is so hazy,that they authorized this kind of coins fusion,because crytocurrency is  big different from local stock market bussiness.

You want 2 chains to fork to a new single chain? Wouldn't it essentially mean creating a new coin?
From realistic perspective I don't think this would happen even if technically it's possible somehow. There are a lot other things to consider in this, every crypto has its unique features how will they turn out after the merging?

technically is not so difficult, both chains can swap to a new one, if you establish a period of time in which the holders has to swap their coins to the new one it is not a problem.
The main problem is for holders that leave the coin in the wallet and forget about it, the solution could be leaving the swap option available during a larger period of time
