#3

Alot of these Altcoins are from ventures that are either Not general or are at the application layer.
For example, Golem and Steemit are not general purpose.
And Augur is focused on forecasting.
These protocols dont seem to have the potential to attract developers at scale who could eventually create a full stack (towards Web 3.0).


#4

Yes, it would be better to categorize Altcoins that way. Sounds like a job for a Google sheet - note to self to do this.

My guess based on past waves of disruption, is that the number of real protocol layer ventures that make it will be tiny - about 5-10 maybe. How many TC/IP of money ventures will developers support with their time?


#5

here is the Google sheet. Ranking is a snapshot in time. I am sure somebody can make it dynamic. I have only filled in any I know. Anybody with this link can comment, but I did not want to open up editing to all:

Apart from Ethereum, I don’t see any of the others on your list as having an Altcoin funding strategy.

The only one on this list that I know is getting developer traction is IPFS ecosystem. I don’t know any of these guys:

Tezos
Rchain
PolkaDot
Difinity
Cosmos
