A recent post on TorrentFreak reassured my conclusion that absolute majority of the Altcoins is going to live in the future. The first reason is that if your invested wealth is deprecating in value, you most likely will continue to run the node in order not to make it decrease even more. For torrents, there are no incentives, and yet the oldest torrent is still being shared, due to it’s decentralized nature. Cryptocurrencies have much more than that, they redistribute over time more efficiently and the incentives make them at least 100 times more reliable than a torrent. Expect your coin to outlive you.
