'tremendous growth' hasn't really been a thing lately, as far as crypto is concerned, unless 'growth' is defined much differently, too...


To be fair, headlines tend to focus on the currency part of cryptocurrencies, as opposed to the value of the underlying technology - blockchain. So when the currencies fall there is a tendency to think it's the end of crypto!

But 'currency' in the usual sense is just one use case. There are lots of other applications (and existing projects) out there for which the currencies mainly serve as tokens for exercising the functionality of the applications.
