Three Things We Learned About Bitcoin After Recent Volatility

If a Cryptopacolypse occurred, what coins would survive? What coins would become the trees for other projects to develop from? & what about exchanges? What would happen to people's coins if they exploded? What did Crypto used to be like? & WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH USDT "PRINTING?"

THIS NOT AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS. THIS IS BETTER CLASSIFIED AS A CONFUSED RAMBLE ROOTED IN GRATITUDE & GREED
Please don't one sentence shill this post w. the coins you're holding.
Posting on reddit isn't going to lighten the load of your bags, make you richer any quicker, or further the technology these projects are developing.
"Why are you asking? Is this FUD"
No. This isn't FUD. I have no idea how to tell if the market's going to crash or skyrocket beyond /CryptoCurrency & related forums. I'm just watching what happens & participating where I can, like, in selling digital fucking tulips for up to $300.
The hell is that? What is going on?
This question about the market being ravaged by bears the size of moons bears a curiosity I'd like to aim at folks that have been around for a while (before 2017) will have some perspective on the volatile nature of the market, having watched coins rise & die. If you've been around a while, what are your thoughts on the current state of regulations, taxes, corporate shenanigans, weird ICOs, all this crazy cash grab run that seems to be muddying the point of crypto? What was it like 2 years ago? 5 years ago?
"Okay, jpw123, you fell in on /biz/ ponzis (& promoted them, thinking you were "helping") & have no idea what you're doing. In your ignorance, what do you think would survive a massive crash?*
Well, I'd bet a single ETH that ETH would be one to survive.
BTC, maybe, because of the name? The "father figure" archetype that'll eventually be surpassed by the children of the coming days?
Aren't these two the giants (ETH + BTC) that the "networks" (right term?) of many coins entire infrastructures are based off of?
Looking at this, I think l knocking the fruit from the tree (many of the useless alts) would be easier than cutting the tree itself down. This tree is strongly rooted.
In this community, in the cryptoworld, among the coins, what do you think are the potential future "trees?" What are the apples that'll rot & fall to the dread "0." cough cough please XRP please
Crypto is here to stay. If the government continues invading this space, tries to strengthen regulations, if Wall St starts occupying the blockchain, well, we're fucked.
& it's happening. What to do?
Some other guesses for coins that'd survive (keyword: "guesses") would be NEO (Chinese ETH, right?) + ARK (I'm not sure if this is a secret I'm supposed to keep?) + ICX (post after post after post, South Korean ETH) .
Those coins all have large communities via reddit, discord, etc,, & most with real & active partnerships that'll keep them afloat.
Maybe VEN (soon to be VET) & IOTA too? XRB?
Some of these (like VEN + XRB (instant, free transactions, right? I'm working this post from memory as a bit of a test of retention).
I've read up some on these coins, but cannot say I'm an expert. I'm still learning how a blockchain works. But many of these coins are the ones y'all are screaming about regularly here, & I feel you might make money off the coin, BUT WILL IT SURVIVE A MULTI-YEAR BEAR STAMPEDE?
I know less about, about those y'all keep screaming that they're going to revolutionize one thing or another. I'll keep digging, & appreciate the information you share.
I'm still new to crypto, & if there are coins I haven't listed you think would survive, please share! But please, explain why.
"I'm holding huge bags I bought at an ATH," is not a good reason.
Oh, well, I'd be a fool not to mention XMR. With the current tax laws, & the general need for privacy in a surveillance state, I don't see something so fundamentally powerful shriveling up & sedating the state's hunger.
USDT PRINTING
WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THIS? I see conflicting arguments relating to an "audit" that occured. Poking around, this seems to be bull-ish-shit. How worried should we be?
How do we keep the Wall Street krakens from leaching into this? Is that even possible? Is this another example of capitalism eating itself until there's nothing left but a wasteland to mine pennies out of the dust of what we could of become?
PS : My research is limited. There's so much going on news wise, tech wise, coin wise, it's hard to keep up. I poked around with Bitcoin in 2013, but didn't really get involved until Nov, 2017. Therefore, I am still a newb.
Gratitude to the folks who are still posting quality content & educational material here. I'm exhausted of the repitive shills for the coin of the week.
What coins would survive an onslaught of corporate bears sinking their teeth into this market, destroying my already weak portfolio, & murdering my dreams of not needing to work a day job while learning to develop my passions?
DISCLAIMER : I hold a little NEO, ETH, & during the early January madness, bought into FUN, POE (honestly, this was my worst investment in the sense of reason why. I like to write.), REQ XLM, BAT (PAY CONTENT CREATORS), ADA (this was also a sporadic, un-researcheed "oh hey, this is cheap. ignore the marketcap, investment), HORSE (really digging this so far, a FOMO that's working out), &, I am very ashamed to admit, that I lept on the TRX wagon early on thinking I'd be a millionaire. Lessons learned. Sold out at a profit & transferred to a coin w. an actual product (but did keep a small amount because these markets are fucking insane)
Some heavy lessons have been learned. When emotions get involved, you're going to wind up kicking it with me, going on a long walk thru 2018 with some heavy bags & learning patience. Newbs, please don't fall for /biz/ shills. DYORx5
& fellow newbs, I don't recommend this, but if I fell for it, I feel many others will follow suite down the road as exchanges re-open registrations.
If you're going to do a ponzi scheme, get in within the first hour, or don't.
SHILLING Okay, did earlier feel like shilling? Typing this doesn't feel that way, considering I'm shit broke in-comparison to what some folks here are moving around. Those buy walls man.
Well, after having learned to navigate these spaces better, & dodge the FUD (a lil, my heart's been polished with a blender this past month, I'm greedier than I realized), I've looked into DOT, EXRN, ADC (Kendrick fucking Lamar), BPL, XRB (yesyesyes, I've seen all your posts, this coin seems beautiful, I just haven't gotten in yet).
Oh, & ARC. Lordy lord, tell me more. This coin seems wonderful Tell me what's messed up about it. That development team seams to actually care about the community. That's a sign if I've ever seen one.
Let's keep these roots strong.
& please DYOR before investing. I've really fucked myself on that one.
CLOSING GIGGLES
I just imagined the price of all these coins shooting up before I can purchase any. Damn. There the market goes.
