Tell me, newbie here.

How long the bitcoin will maintain its leading position in terms of capitalization?

What happens if it is overtaken by ETH or XRP?

Will this mean that the exchange will change the currency pair and altcoins will be traded with another currency, which will occupy the first place among all the others?

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

Lots of things will change since we are used to bitcoin being the first. If bitcoins be overtaken by different coin maybe that will just be treated like bitcoin.
That coin will be also very volatile and exchanges will change the pair with that coin.

But for me, that happening is quite small. All couns is build up in bitcoins as the primary coin. The base will not be shaken up without removing all other coins. The bitcoins effect to the other coins are very evident. When bitcoin lowers all of the coin follows.

No one can say with certainty, it could be within this year or it could be never. My guess is ETH will take over within the next 2 years.

What happens if it is overtaken by ETH or XRP?

Will this mean that the exchange will change the currency pair and altcoins will be traded with another currency, which will occupy the first place among all the others?


Most exchanges already offer ETH/ALT pairs as well as BTC/ALT pairs. I don't think that anything else will change, certainly not in a short time. If for example BTC fell very low and many alts overtook it then I think there may be other pairs added.

First, use the search button.
We already have a fresh thread about this, and a lot more in the past about this subject.

Second, nothing will happen. Marketcap is meaningless.
