Generally, people turn to altcoins to protect themselves against Bitcoin. They will tell you that spending is essential, that Bitcoin 2.0 will be even better if you give them some of your Bitcoin. Once you have fallen into temptation, they will leave you alone. In the realpolitik of the blockchain, everyone is a hustler. There is a war for your bitcoins and your only defense is the will. Although unlimited amounts have been injected into altcoins, ICO software, vulnerable third-party services, etc., many Bitcoin-related issues still need to be solved by open-source development, funding for these projects, security, the accessibility and usability of the software. The Bitcoin network is increasing, making it an even better investment. Most altcoins are technically different from Bitcoin, which often explains why people invest in it. The reasoning is this: Since these altcoins have much of the same utility of Bitcoin with something else, the altcoin can be more useful than Bitcoin and therefore takes over. If an altcoin shows its usefulness, Bitcoin can add the same utility in several ways. Altcoins must not only compete with Bitcoin, but also with all entrepreneurs looking to build something on Bitcoin. When you compete with Bitcoin, you compete not only with its user base, development team and much larger mining, but also against the vast ecosystem of startups, open source projects and entrepreneurs. This does not mean that any investment in altcoin is bad. Each investor needs to assess his / her own risk / reward ratio and decide whether or not he or she meets his objectives.
