    for some it's not about short term performance. will it ALWAYS outperform it in the next 5 years? how about 10 or 15 years? so maybe people buy to hedge against that

      >BTC go down
      >ETH violently dumps
      Your shitcoin factory exists because Bitcoin exists.

      Eth will likely always outperform bitcoin but the typical established pattern is that it will never decouple from the bots which counter-trade bitcoin's movements and the retards who pump eth to buy shitcoins.

      The cycle is well established, bitcoin is going to keep bouncing off the resistance limply before a cascading capitulation that makes May look like a joke. Eth will just fucking shoot straight down to 300 dollars, which is 3x the previous bottom. There it will stay until bitcoin does a big fat move from 20k to 50k and people realize the bullrun is back on in 2025,

        Good point, wonder why you didn’t get any (you)‘s.
        The question is, how do stablecoins play into btc vs eth and other alts? Would people rather cash out into tether when things are going down?
        But it still does seem like btc bull alt moon and btc bear alt rekt is still the case.

    ethereum is just another alt, of which newer alts outperform it anyway

      And Bitcoin has never seen a high to ethereum since 2015.
      Anyway there are alts that reached a new high in this cycle after already pumping in 2017

        nice cope but irrelevant
        if outperforming is what matters, ethereum became obsolete in june 2017 when it permanently peaked against bitcoin
        from that point onwards newer altcoins always massively outperformed ethereum in a bullrun, and bitcoin outperformed in a bear market.

        ethereum just enters no mans land, a permanent downtrend since 2017.

            yeah, you bought an alt in a bullrun and it outperformed bitcoin
            how long have you in these markets? that's literally 101.

            almost everything outperforms in a bull, ethereum got massively outperformed by newer alts itself. your point is?

            [...]

            yeah, and so did dogecoin, but it took the "weathiest" man in the world constantly shilling it.
            you think that's bullish for old alts that have now skipped an entire bull market on a permanent downtrend? poors will believe anything.

              i think that btc is not the 100% bet some are shilling it. Especially fungibility and the fact that early buyers always dump hard is not goood

            yeah, but you're in the red from 6 months later, permanently. its not the 0.15 wick, even 0.09 has been an impenetrable barrier, and thats 40+% off the ath.

            anybody that bought ethereum early (<0.01) doesn't give a fuck, but that's emotional trading. the trend is all that matters, and so far ethereum has yet to break the altcoin trend. that means smart money will always have an eye on the exit until proven otherwise.

              I don't even know what that means since buying ETH has been the better play for like 85% of ETH's 7 year existence, and this weird appeal to voodoo semantics like "its an altcoin" means nothing in the face of the obvious: ETH runs this industry, and BTC is a ponzi

                your metrics work for hundreds of assets though, that's why trend is all that matters. a child could outperform bitcoin in a bull market. in a bear ethereum did the same as any other alt.

                There are two types of cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin, and everything else. Eth falls under the everything else category. You seem to have the roles of btc and eth reversed. Eth is the ponzi. But I'm not gonna try to talk you out of it. Just keep holding until the merge bro I'm sure everything will work out flawlessly and you will have proven me and everyone else in this thread wrong. Just two more weekz!

                🙂

                yep like every other btc maxi including the other retard you actually don't have any arguments except "IT JUST IS, OKAY?"
                must be hard to sleep when the *only* thing propping up your investment is the next buyer; BTC has zero utility, it is literally a game of how retarded the market can be - for now there's enough information asymmetry for people to believe BTC dogwater blockchain illiterate narratives, but its flimsy, and it just means ETH is undervalued at current prices relative to BTC, which makes it an extra comfy hold

        and go work out how many alts made a new bitcoin high in 2021 against their 2017 high. you'll find effectively nothing outside of tokens attempting to be backed/pegged by real-world assets or businesses.

        old alts are just that, old. they peak once, and permanently enter a macro downtrend. maybe ethereum can break out of that, but there's zero evidence since 2015 that ethereum has been performing as anything but an average alt.

    Because they have a maximum amount of coins. Assuming they don't have some sort of technical malfunction or extreme competition people will grow more and more trusting. Countries will fall. Regimes will change. Markets will turn over. Fashion will change. Bitcoin will just be there. The same amount getting more and more valuable. That's sort of an overall crypto argument though but I think it's cool and works pretty well as a store of value from a technical use case perspective.

    it's not even that old of coin. It had a fucking 7 block reorg just a few weeks ago. I hold eth for outperformance as well and dumb wallstreet/retail money but to not have majority in bitcoin is plain foolish. If you want out performance bnb would be the best risk/reward over eth. 70% bitcoin 20% bnb, 10% eth. BNB has everything you wish the merge had but has a company behind it that can buy back the coin from profit and has a much better burn rate. It does the same shit as eth as well. eth has more projects built on it for now but most of that shit is going to migrate anyways except for things that need to be the most decentralized of the centralized solutions (like defi ) and even that might go to bnb just depends if it's robust enough to withstand the regs. Games, nfts, token swaps all that shit is on bnb and works much better.

            i feel bad for losers like you. You only lived through bull markets and big tech dominance. No wonder you ask a question and then attack anyone that answers it with name calling, emotional arguments, and other child like behavior.
            Your ass is going to be on the street soon as rates keep rising and your careers is ended because you work for zombie companies. Pajeets and h1b1 visas can do your jobs for 1/10 the price and will work longer hours. I saw this shit before. do yourself a favor and look at the company's balance sheet that you work at. If it doesn't amazon, microsoft, or apple your probably fucked.
