The longer I'm in the crypto sphere, the more convinced I get that I had it right from the very beginning. Namely that apart from a very, very few exceptions, it ultimately really is all about Bitcoin. I mean, who even cares anymore about the tired old "Ohhh look guys, some random convenience store in some city you've never been to is accepting X-coin", or some 💩 like that, real names don't matter, they're all the same.
Now, to try and remain as unbiased and fair as possible and to immediately address the elephant in the room who actually also did partner with countries, this pesky little token, a thorn in my eye, once an absolute hidden gem centralized into near pointlessness: CargoX.
A lot of alts with this type of centralized control and similar empty promises are 100% of the time a scam, a rug pull just waiting to happen. It very seldom is the case that big promises like what CargoX is promising can actually be delivered on. Thus IMO the CXO token is a literal coin flip, a 50/50 chance on whether or not you opted for a scam or missed a once in a lifetime opportunity.
I tested myself and got me a small bag of CXO a few weeks ago, but when the markets went through a mini-crash and CXO remained stable, mostly because no one is touching the stuff, I couldn't bear to miss an 8% extra stack of ETH and converted it all right back. Conclusion: I just don't believe anymore. The community is still keeping daily count though of all the processed documents and all the gains they will make for when the CXO team does another buyback, but with no volume coming in and barely places you can trade the token, who knows how beneficial it will all really be in practice.
Anyways back OT with BTC and you might have already noticed from the way the title is phrased; it's not Bitcoin that's opting or aggressively pushing for others to adapt it, others are willingly and knowingly opting for Bitcoin. Rather big and crucial difference if you stop and think about it. Sure, there are groups and individuals who are introducing others or preaching to the masses about Bitcoin, but they are in no way bonded, affiliated or responsible for Bitcoin. No one can say that for altcoins, which have their communities and early adapters on a daily basis pushing the team to do "more marketing" in order to reel more people in who they can finally sell that bag to they've been hodling on for almost four years now. I guess that if the tech and product doesn't speak for itself, all that's left is to scream your message onto the masses via an over-budgeted marketing mix.🤔
Now some might argue that Bitcoin is only being adapted by smaller countries and that ultimately, it's not all that significant.
So I guess their next excuse will be that "only small planets use it"😂
