I think that depends on the currency.
With bitcoin for example, I do not see that would work. It would be like creating new bitcoins intentionally, and that is a really bad idea.
Maybe it would be possible with some ICOs as kind of a marketing move. Creating a new coin that climbs up the ladder of market capitalization in order to get more attention.

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?

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.

you can create a new blockchain and swap coins to the new blockchain
...or just invent a new technology
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?
yes it's true but if you improve with better features holders would be happy
you can swap out different amounts balancing the decimals if the to different coins have not the same value, this is the magic of cryptocurrencies, the decimals offer the possibility to divide the coin in ,000000000000000 Smiley

yes, for example.

of course with bitcoin and with most of the coins on the top of marketcap is quite impossible, but we don't know, the crypto ecosystem is changing so much that it is reshaping continuosly and in the future we don't know what can happen.

also if there's a rapid massive adoption maybe we will be forced to make everything more accessible for everyone

It would be possible if the two platforms compliment with each other and that they would share the same vision. Would probably another hype for cryptocurrency since it would help those project with less resource and merge with a much better platform to be able to stand the competition of cryptocurrencies.

A merger between two or more cryptos would really be humongous  and overwhelming. It would obviously be for the betterment of both the coins into one,a lot of audience would be attracted to this,but finding a perfect match for both the cryptos is almost as impossible, cause we know how cryptos function and most of them are ERC20 tokens or built on waves platform or some lame ass motive(promoting a shitcoin to go to the moon and the like). Litecoin was developed only because they wanted faster transactions. We can go on and on about this but most of the cryptos,IMO are shit if it has to be used for a merger. They are only beneficial when it comes to trading or mining.

Aren't tokens actually the ones easier to merge?
They share the same protocol, you could easily convert a tokens and b tokens to c tokens, abandoning the first two and create another useless token.

But I doubt it would be better for the bigger coins.
No matter how you look at it, from the perspective of one that holds one of the coin it means printing money.

And why would a better coin share resources with a failed coin? It would drag it down also.
The most popular coin can just make a hardfork and copy all the feature of the other coin , without any merger.

Most of the tokens are shit,inconsiderate of which platform they are built in. Merging would not help,maybe it would make things worse,just like how things work out in corporate. Two major companies screw up their whole reputation(if any) in the name of a merger.

If we bring in corporate world into this, then from that point of view,major companies like taking over small companies,for two reasons: They have a new product to work towards,and their reputation grows as people see that this company did a "good thing" and bullshit. Now if major crypto-related companies do so,people would talk good about it,another reason for the coin to be pumped. So what is happening is goodwill of the reputed company makes people think nonsensical facts and this becomes a reason for them to "HODL". Sad reality check.

I see it as quite difficult to merge different blockchains, but fusions could well be a mere financial one, and in this case this could be achieved perhaps with a next stage of the Bancor protocol, which already now is able to create pool of liquidity across different assets.
