What is the next big thing in Bitcoin/Crypto?

Somethings I remember generating a lot of excitement at first.
Mining, when it could still be done with graphics cards and early mining machines.
Gambling, the early sites SatoshiDice and later Just-Dice had huge followings. Looks like there is still a lot of crypto gambling just split up over many more sites now.
The early Altcoins such as Dogecoin and Huntercoin.
Tokens and Dapps made possible with Ethereum.
Earlier Tokens with the airdrops were very profitable.
Dapps looked very promising at first, not sure they've lived up to it yet.

What do you think is next?

Next big thing would be acceptence of Bitcoin and other crypto coins on a real-time basis which is bit difficult due to volatility, developers should focus on how to make cryptos usable like any other online payment method or the purpose it's developed instead of just leaving it as a investment medium because the core objective of crypto coin is to make our lives easier and upgrade ourself with next level of technologies which is need of the hour.

I feel Bitcoin and other altcoins needs to focus on adaptability by having tie up with tech startups and gradually move on to wider range of audiences

Something you've missed in your list which has been there since ever. It's HODL.
Holding bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies you think it's really valuable for a medium to long periods would generate the profit you dream about .
Those who bought to hodl btc before December 2017 are actually financially satisfied.
Gambling, mining, and alts are all for fast profit and are all somehow a sort of gambling as you predicted that the method is profitable, when for btc if you think it's the currency of the future than you would never lose; at least for the next decade

Have we missed any? I think there's nothing. Everything is there as you have mentioned. But asking what is the next big thing, I have been thinking about another group of crypto projects that we never know. From, ICO, IEO, Defi, and next.

I don't think there is a need to have this because we already have plenty of crypto projects, in fact, a lot of them been abandoned or even dead. What we need now is to have the full adoption of the system, to widen the consideration of Bitcoin, and let people enjoyed this without thinking the authorities will apprehend them or put them in jail

There will always be next after DeFi, but we don't know yet. But I really hope that in the very near future, the adoption of lightning network be massive. To address the problem of high tx fees in the regular btc network, LN is really one of the solutions. But not most people are familiar with using this network. So if in case, LN will have good adoption, I guess a lot of people will be happy using btc as their payment method

Being universally accepted as payment method by online and offline stores, this was the true design by Satoshi himself so it somewhat we see online stores "bitcoin accepted here' logo then perhaps this will be the ultimate fulfillment to all of us. I don't know if you heard about the Defi, but this is the big thing, however, it was just pure hype as altcoin has evolved from IEO-ICO-DEFI-???

Mass adoption, I think, is the next big thing. We have seen its market value develop as years are passing by as well as its spread of popularity. And now, it is more exposed to the masses and IMO, this technology will soon be more accepted in the world market as a mode of payment but not primarily the only medium. It would more likely co-exist with other digital currencies. But I doubt it will already be used in daily transactions because its market price's volatility is still profitable to invest. So maybe, once its market price stabilises, that will only be the time its advantages will be taken advantage at its fullest, in transactions

Defi is the current trend and thinking what's next? we'll never know. Is there any new type of crowdfunding that's becoming popular other than the past styles of ICO, IEO and Defi? I don't think that we get to see one of them. I thought that IEO was going to be one of the longest wave but it didn't looked like it did. Being backed by a known exchange looks a win-win for the projects but still, it didn't lasts. Next could be the governmental interference for such crowdfunding

So maybe, accepted in a way it will just be recognize? and not be fully used based on its purpose which is being a digital currency. Its volatility I think is still an issue to why many people are afraid to put their savings into it because they will be exposed to risk of losing money from doing so, especially at times wherein the market price is falling. Since those people are not aware of its true nature, we really cannot blame them from doing so. Thus, further development is more likely to happen in the future regarding this issue.

I agree with your point, but for me personally Bitcoin isn't "making our lives easier and upgrade ourself with next level of technologies", it's rather a safenet against banks, gov control and crises which we are on the verge of

Plus on the mass adoption really since right now if we want to see Bitcoin grow we must look at it in the long term way and see if Bitcoin is really being accepted in terms of its demand. Right now we are seeing news about companies buying Bitcoin from their cash reserves and also companies like Paypal integrating Bitcoin into their system, this are just some signs that Bitcoin is indeed being accepted in the commercial stand-point. Now we have to wait if this will also be embrace by the consumers who are looking for alternative modes of payment

Dacă doriți să obțineți profit din bitcoin, atunci ar trebui să faceți tranzacții zilnice și vă sugerez să tranzacționați cu Sarah Barton. O fac de mai bine de 1 an și mă descurc. Puteți ajunge la ea prin e-mailul ei,

The last two big things were DeFi and ICO. Both were hyped because of their supposed decentralization, while on practice no one really cared about decentralization, it was always about making money on a speculative market and selling shitcoins to suckers. The next big thing will likely be some new form of tokens that will be hyped as a replacement for some part of traditional finance, maybe decentralized insurance tokens or something like that. Of course it will never be used on practice, just like ICO didn't replace stocks or DeFi didn't replace traditional finance

I think the next big thing in crypto is its mass adoption. People should also learn how to utilize bitcoin as a medium for payment to buy basic necessities like fiat and not just as a sole investment forever. But with bitcoin's high volatility at the moment, i think it's totally hard for this to finally happen but hopefully, things will be realize soon. It's good to see bitcoin and even altcoins already part of this payment methods even an alternative ones.
