Almost every day we hear of a new shiny set of crypto coins or protocol listed on your friendly crypto exchange and inevitably thrust into the ‘mainstream’. I suspect this is going to continue well into the future. The concepts the prop up these assets, are still novel and in their infancy (10 years on), and are developing at an incredible pace. The value of crypto assets, especially Bitcoin and Ether is increasing and gaining legitimacy, and this attracts people’s attention to this area. Somewhat of a self fulfilling process. But there is a sting in the ‘tale’, pun intended.
