Bitcoin promoter Mike Maloney recently opined that investing in right and select cryptocurrencies should be the main priority and that other than coins like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum, all the other cryptos would go down to zero. Several other economists have echoed similar opinions. However, a look at the pace at which the altcoins are recovering lately might make people want to rethink their stance.
