Cryptos are cratering again and any serious speculator must ask if these assets are worth the bother. After achieving good results for those buying low in 2018 and hitting solid numbers in July of 2019, cryptocurrencies have floundered the past two months and in the past week have fallen badly. Pundits (shills) who said July proved a positive reversal was taking place and all doubts should be put to the side are once again in hiding. A recent study suggest approximately 25% of all cryptocurrencies have not had a new single line of code developed this year, meaning they are dead. As the shadow of quantum computing and communication approach all encryption in the current blockchain realm may prove to be vulnerable.
