Many people have expressed the opinion that Bitcoin broke new ground, but that there will be some superior or 2.0 crypto currency that will end up dominating. Once Bitcoin is no longer the leading crypto currency, it will crash in price very fast. In our view, the current leading candidate most likely to surpass Bitcoin in Market cap is BitsharesX During this transition the total market cap of all crypto currency will significantly decline. But once the new leader emerges, and people trust it as much as Bitcoin, it will rapidly surpass anything Bitcoin was able to achieve.
Our prediction is that this transition will take place in 2015, and that by the end of 2015, the new leading crypto currency will have a market cap greater than Bitcoin ever had.
