Maybe I am just dense, but it seems to me that your definition of crypto, the economic incentive to make use of a blockchain, means that Bitcoin is obsolete. Its only use is as a currency, mining is frightfully expensive and energy-intensive, and you can't build projects on its blockchain.

On the other hand, it is truly decentralized, and any valid competitor has to be decentralized. Your take?
