I will put my favorite coin USDT as one of the top ten, very practical to buy when you expect bears are coming. because of its stability, you can actually chart better using it as a base currency and prediction is much easy. unlike other pairs when trading with BTC/ETH as the base your not only charting (coin)/btc or eth but you must look at BTC/USD chart as well to make a prediction because everyone is affected when a sudden drop or increase in BTC value.

Many will disagree but I think BCH would be ahead of BTC in the scenario described by OP. Because BCH scales on-chain, Bitcoin does as well originally but Lightning Network massively decreases the real (original) value of Bitcoin.

Can you explain why you think the "Lightning Network massively decreases the real (original) value of Bitcoin"?

I recently checked the features of XMR in a recent article on this forum, I think monero deserves better credit than it currently gets, and several other coins like that

It's bad in terms of the bitcoin spirit. It may lead to centralization, that's not the essence of bitcoin. I know many will disagree with this opinion. No big deal.

What a great list. I would've added Syscoin, Civic (or should I say Identity) and Factom, but they seem to not be in the top 100 (for the moment Wink). I admit I do not follow the hit list positions from nearby... I've seen far too many scams and shitcoins appear (and disappear) in these top lists. Let's say market cap is not necessarily a reference for quality...

I am also a bit surprised how no-one mentioned Stellar yet.

@theymos, you could add a poll to this thread, which allows you to filter out your personal preferences and leave only those you prefer in the poll. Wink I am quite curious to read which coins you would name as "coins for sane people".

A lot of the tokens that are payment tokens for platforms and protocols realistically do not have much value other than what has been artificially injected into it by forcing it as a payment. (Of which many projects are beginning to accept ETH as well as their ERC token).

Many of the different coins (not tokens), however, hold value, especially those that are made to be easily used by public and major players. Ex: NEM seeing major use in Japan, even by Japanese government. ICX in South Korea. VeChain by many major companies for supply chain management. Qtum, Nebulas, and I'm sure many others are worthehile in that they enable the use of mainstream coding languages like C.

A case could also be made for tokens that are being used in high volume and have burn mechanisms. Binance Coin comes to mind

Maybe no one at all, since no one is that widely used and it's just speculation of what is going to be at this stage?  Smiley

XLM
XMR
BTC
ADA, EOS, NEO, ZIL
BAT

I don't think exchange tokens like BNB should be considered.

It was only a matter of time before this topic started to look like a thread from the Speculation board.  Grin Cool

Of  course it's all about speculation.
If not, can you name one coin that is "good" today?A real effective working product?
Btc ? Too slow, too expensive, not accepted by the public yet... which is its goal.
Eth ? Not working ! No scalability...far from what it should be.
Xmr ? Still considered illegal by many.

If the masses of people were anywhere near close to being sane...

There would be NO coins...NO COINS would be needed...MONEY would NOT exist.

(Save as objects of ARTISTRY decoration etc..)

Also interesting would be a list of coin projects which respect their roadmap and deadlines.

Would be a real "short list".

There is a total of only 8 DAPPS actively used, 5 on Ethereum, 3 on EOS :

https://ethereumworldnews.com/dapps-future-eth-eos-apps/

Quote
According to a tweet from Kevin Rooke, a Canadian cryptocurrency analyst/researcher, the Ethereum and EOS blockchains collectively host only eight DApps that are actively utilized (daily) by more than 300 users.

In my opinion, I think if the interest in the market was to be 'more sane' as you define it, I think it may well look very differently shaped then how it is now. Thus, Bitcoin may not have been the top coin - don't mind me that's my opinion only.

in my perspective, the top coin is if people were sane is EOS. they call it the ethereum killer. and it far surpasses bitcoin when compared in terms of scalability and speed.

In addition to your link, there is also this alternative ranking to CMC : https://www.coingecko.com/en

It's not based on total market cap, but instead on github activity, community activity, exchange liquidity, ... The result is interesting as well.


For the fun I mixed both links and the result is as follow : (there aren't much coins left from CMC top 100!)

1/ Bitcoin11/ Qtum 21/ BAT
2/ Ethereum12/ Binance Coin22/ Bytecoin
3/ Ripple13/ Bitshares23/ Polymath
4/ Litecoin14/ Waves24/ Kyber Network
5/ Monero15/ Steem25/ Komodo
6/ BitcoinCash16/ 0x26/ Bancor
7/ Stellar Lumens17/ Sia27/ Horizen
8/ NEO18/ Golem28/ Wanchain
9/ ZCash19/ Augur
10/ Nano20/ Decred


I assume that staying in the coins listed above would be a "sane" bet combining: CMC top 100 + working product + active development + active community.

Nice topic.

BTC
LTC
XMR

The followup to this is why were coins  created in the first place.
I would say to provide  interest on funds.

Banks gave  5 to 10%  from 1977 to 2001 or 2002.

Markets fully crash a bit later.. say 2006 to 2008

Then coins came along in 2009.

For system to work  you need a few big asic coins and a few big gpu coins.

The vast majority on coinmarketcap  are filler to make exchange to better coins.

All digital currencies can be a method of payment, which is just like bitcoin. But that is the only purpose of bitcoin. Until we see how RSK works.  But as of now, bitcoin is just a currency.  Hence I will not put it on the top. Can i use ETH, XMR, WAN or AION to make payment?  Sure i can, as long as the other party accepts it.  This is about mass adoption. But many alts can be used for something else.  e.g ETH & NEO have smart contract.  ICX, WAN, AION, interoperability.  XMR, Zcoin, privacy.  If i were to pick a top 3, there would be something like:

1. Speed
2. Privacy
3. Interoperability.
