All of them are good for bitcoin because they attract more money to the market which is good for bitcoin, they can't be higher than bitcoin in terms of market cap.

I think the immediate reaction from people invested into Bitcoin would be negative, when they hear that some new Alt coin or "Blockchain" based technology was launched. You immediately think that money will flow away from Bitcoin to these Alt coins and Bitcoin will lose investors.

Could a new coin attract new investors to the whole Crypto currency scene, that would not have invested, if it was not for this coin?

Let's say for instance "Mc Donald's" launch a new Alt coin, called "McCoin" and Billions of people starts to buy and sell these coins. What would the natural spinoff of this be? I think "increased awareness" of Crypto Currencies. A percentage of these people might start to trade other Alt coins or Bitcoin as a result of this. <Big companies will kind of legitimize Crypto currencies, because people tend to trust these companies>

Do you think this is Good or Bad for Bitcoin, when this happens?  

Every cryptocurrency that is newly circulated in the market is good for bitcoins because in this way, the competition in the market will keep on growing and we can expect a better future for bitcoins.

I'm not so sure that many of those altcoins are bringing new money to the market, most of all the money currently invested in cryptocurrencies is invested in the top 20 coins, if the other projects were that good and were able to bring benefits to the community we will see a more fair distribution in the amount of money invested in them but since it is not the case it is fair to say they do not really bring too much to the community.

new altcoins can appears but there is no guarantee those altcoins will survive more than bitcoin even though those altcoins popular but for long term still bitcoin the best cryptocurrencies to hold however i think this is good for bitcoin because possibly the people who buy altcoin also can consider to buy bitcoin as their asset too and if this is happened then i think we will find new investors for bitcoin
That is the case but the fantastic part of it is that they have at least in a way been able to help the whole space grow. Sure, a lot of people invest in the crypto space for different reasons, and having bitcoin alone in this space, would actually have made things boring or slow a little bit.

As long as there are alternatives, even though they do not stand a chance of competing with bitcoin due to the first movers advantage, but at least they serve their own purpose, and they are useful in their own area, which I believe bitcoin cannot end up having it all, or probably, we could have just been dragging with growth and development somehow.

Having new altcoins is good for the crypto economy,much of the wider awareness of bitcoin in recent times can be traced in parts to the proliferation of ICO projects.I think having new altcoins has a positive impact on the price of bitcoins.It draws more funds to crypto and some of those funds eventually end up in bitcoins.

new cryptocurrency means there will be new competitor in the market, it only means that the community of cryptocurrency is keep on growing and there are more people who are interested on bitcoins more than fiat.

I think its good for bitcoin because most of the newly created coins now are in ethereum blockchain amd it made no difference to ethereums price in the market so in bitcoins case, I dont think there is a threat if alrernate coins are created in bitcoins blockchain.

Yeah this is also very much true. As ICO's are forming day by day but with no real progress in the ETH platform as they dont really contribute to the value. If they would have increased the value of ETH then it could have had bad effects on the BTC as most of the people would have gotten attracted towards the ETH more.

This would have been really bad for the bitcoin economy. Thankfully there is no progress in the ETH value due to ICO's!!

They are anyway different sphere so lets not get worried about because of the altcoins.
Basically, this is not about ETH but BTC, but since you mentioned that, I am not sure what you actually mean by not bringing any value. As far as I am concerned, as long as Ethereum is usable, that makes it valuable and whatever happens on the Ethereum blockchain in terms of development has to do with the developers and not the tokens.

They are all there for their own purposes and serve their own various needs for the users, and in this case, I am referring to those with products, and as long as they are on the Ethereum blockchain, they sure do have a role to play. Overall, for bitcoin, I do not see any problem that altcoins could have created.

Correct. In case there is a new project that gains people's interest, there isn't new money flowing into that project, but money will flow out of existing coins right into the new one.

I am actually quite surprised with how altcoins haven't managed to come up with something really groundbreaking in the last years. Plenty of features they advertise with, barely any use. Only Ethereum managed to actually position itself in the market properly, and we see how that lifted its price significantly. Now it's waiting for Ethereum to dethrone itself or have the ICO hype come to an end.

We also have Monero, which is quite a technical revolution in privacy terms, but it's being put to waste on centralized exchanges.

it seems it depends on how the products and developments that new altcoin has, if their products are good and there are no obstacles then it can be very good too.
Unfortunately most of the altcoins today are more like living in the shadows of bitcoin. It is either some of them are more like a replica or clone trying to do what bitcoin could not do or some are tokens which are utility based. I believe it is a big space though and there is enough room for everyone. It is not a bad they are there, although in a way they have caused a huge diversion, but one thing is that the growth is imminent, and at least, they still bring a lot of competition for the space.

There was a debate in this forum on why we need altcoins and there most people shared like altcoins are indirectly providing development ideas and testing platforms. I guess no one could ignore all these. It means new altcoins and blockchain based coins are always good for BTC and its community for making it evolved as per requirements of future.

We are already in cryptocurrency and this was already existed, new altcoins, and new blockchains that some of this wants to beat bitcoins blockchain. It's good that we have some altcoins that having different ideas and usage as we are approaching the coming future this will help our future and for Bitcoin it remains the same it is the most used crypto to exist in the world we can never change it even saying that every company is starting to make their own coin regardless how bitcoin investors decrease because a certain time when it goes up the investors were always going back to it.

I have come to strong conclusion that only the good and bad news around the globe can hamper the crypto currencies movement. It matter when there is exchanger that has got hacked, it matter when there is government accepting the crypto currencies, thats all! These kind of news and many more can only hamper the crypto currencies prices. No it does not matter if new altcoin is coming our way because it has its own crypto sphere where investors could be different, same and in equal for which we have no idea. So it doesn't matter if they bring new coin in market.

Definitely if such a reputed company launches a coin,it would attract many investors but still bitcoin has got well settled,bitcoin investors would still continue to hold bitcoins.

It somehow good for some investors to atleast try other crypto investment aside from bitcoin. Altcoins are created for it's affordability. We all know how bitcoin cost, so producers and crypto lovers think of a way how cryptocurrency aside from bitcoin, with another blockchain but lower in value will fit the investors criteria and they found out the alternative way about it, which is the altcoins.

This would always dependent on their demand, petty coins may have some negative impacts to bitcoin as it may taint some bad reactions and reputation generally to cryptocurrency most especially to those unaware people but there would be some altcoins which have some good usages and platforms hidden gems they've said that would be beneficial to bitcoin and other pairings of that specific coin.

When new coins are introduced with the blockchain network that is actually a good thing happening for the bitcoin market as the blockchain technology is being promoted and even though it is presented to be a competition for bitcoin the use of blockchain is a note that people are accepting the new standards of finance

Indeed expanded mindfulness is a thing yet we ought to recollect this that it will pretty much abatement the quantity of speculators accessible to Bitcoins is the thing that I think. Some time before there was just Bitcoins and individuals needed to put resources into this simply because there was no other alternative however now you do have a loads of choices therefore we ought to recall that with such a large number of choices the monetary estimation of Bitcoins alone will diminish and the fame as well.

The more coins that prefer to choose to make their own coin instead of choosing the most rational choice coin in this cas4e the bitcoin are proving to be difficulties as the bitcoin can be used to value any assets as it is the accepted convention of the world so it's not good for bitcoin

I think people react negatively to seeing a new type of Blockchain based on the technology and the fear of thinking that bitcoin and other Altcoins will lose investors may be new to menopause. Much experience in investing in electronic money. That might also be good with bitcoin.

I think that is what directly affects the value of bitcoin in the current cryptocurrency market. Previously, bitcoin was considered the first coin in the world to use blockchain technology to succeed. Now if any new co-learners learn bitcoin using blockchain technology, then developers will have more advanced technologies to overcome the bitcoin value.
