Ripple CTO gave out the example of Google back in 2000. He compared how people back then didn’t believe that a search engine would be the next big thing and will make billions of dollars ahead.

He mentioned that some search engines like Ask Jeeves, Altavista and Lycos were also at the right place at the right time but couldn’t make the most of it. Ripple CTO believes that crypto is at that stage where the market is still figuring out if it is going to be the next big thing.
This is why prices tend to move together as people become more or less accrued that digital assets will be the next big thing. However, with time the crypto market will mature and would figure out which digital asset will be successful.
