You're a funny guy I'll give you that :-D You don't even know the difference between investment and speculation. Then you wonder why I call MNOs idiots.
If it loses its crown, it'll be to a hard fork and to another version of bitcoin. Coinbase has already gotten hacked - people panic sold, then other people bought the dip. Same thing happened with Bithumb, same thing happened with OKEx, same thing happened with GDAX... keep hedging your hopes though. At least the lack of liquidity keeps DASH under the radar for no one to care about hacking it.
But you've peaked my interest on these "other businesses" who have completely dropped bitcoin or any variation of it in favor of other cryptos. Mind naming one?
I know what difference other people put between investment and speculation, but it's not my definition. Again, you can call it what you like but in my world success is defined by outcome. You're either good at making money, or not, the proof is on the balance sheet.
How about Dell computers, "[UPDATE] Due to low demand, Bitcoin is no longer available as a form of payment. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. You can still complete your purchase through a number of alternative payment options such as PayPal, all major Credit Cards, and Dell Financial Services."
Hosting companies, for example, are seeing less bitcoin payments. Do you think people are willing to pay $5 - $10 fees on a $20 hosting package? Or how about yours.org that was originally bitcoin, then litecoin and now bitcoin cash.
