Keiser explained that with the progression of the cryptocurrency space and adoption of Segregated Witness (Segwit) and the Lightning protocol, a lot of people started to better comprehend the store of value bitcoin offers, as well as scaling that would come about off chain. This, per Keiser, made crypto owners move their funds back into “the most secure chain [bitcoin]”.
Keiser even further proposed that altcoins are going to pennies or maybe out of existence, considering that “all that cash is going to flow into bitcoin.” He speculated that with bitcoin's market current dominance 60%– which Keiser purports could go to 80%– 90%– “the altcoin phenomenon is finished,” he mentioned.
