Bitcoin forks

    With so many Bitcoin forks over the last month or so which ones will folks be hodling.
    Which ones have a chance in this crowded market?

    I've looked through many of them, some are interesting, all of them seem to offer something new or at least a newer or better way.
    So basically if you held Bitcoin over the last 6-8 weeks you now hold at least 10 more coins.

    From what I can tell Lightning Bitcoin looks the most interesting, and if the developers can pull it off may be a real challenger to not only Bitcoin but also to litecoin, Ethereum as well as Neo.
    Its fast Bitcoin with the benefit of being able to have contracts.

    Here's a linky to all the forks

    None of them in my opinion. Core will continue to dominate them

    I don't expect any of them to challenge Bitcoin straight away, but they can have a case to be in the top 10 crypto's and if successful even then start to challenge the top coins

    Haven’t a notion how to claim coins from forks but do you guys genrerally claim all coins? Is it worth claiming them?

    Edit: I’ve bitcoin held on a ledger nano s is it hard to create new private keys and switch the coins into it?

    They're yours by default, just sit on your key and if they ever become worthwhile you can go about setting up a client.

    I think a lot of people would sell them at first, or at least when a wallet is developed for them. That reminds me of a lot of the alt coins which many people rushed to sell when they had risen a few bucks.

    This would be a good thing as it would allow for a more even distribution which in the long run would be better.
    Me, I will hodl as usual, I may even add some of the ones that look like they have value.
    Like Bitcoin-cash has done really well, I'm glad i didnt sell, happy I added some and regret not adding more but its now worth twice what bitcoin was at the start of 2017
