If you look at shitcoins (e.g. AuroraCoin,BeeCoin) and compare them to innovative coins (HeavyCoin,MyriadCoin), they both go down after an initial pump. Shouldn’t HeavyCoin slowly rise because of its intrinsic innovation value? Let me phrase that the other way round: Why is an innovative coin more valuable than a stupid clone? Answer: It is not. In the current climate innovation does not actually make a coin valuable. At least for now.
