The altcoin market is dead because scammers ruined the space for everyone, and many projects which looked promising didn't pan out. I don't believe we will see another altcoin season. Confidence has been lost. It's only a matter of time before exchanges which are heavy on listing altcoins will become irrelevant.
@kardia, ^^^ this is exactly what you look out for. The internet is really saying in one voice, 'the alt-coin market is dead'. My ears are hurting so loud are the calls. Never a better time then now load up on alts.
@without_worries, well, it has been declining since early 2018 and showing no sign of recovering. Don't get me wrong, I believe certain altcoins will eventually thrive. But there is no denying things have changed in the altcoin market. There isn't much left to trust. So many scams and unfulfilled promises.
@kardia, Depends when you started taking a position, from my perspective since 2016 things look up. You're correct however, certain alt-coins will thrive especially those coins that have already adopted network effects. Never forgot, we're all still super early.
