We are witnessing the emergence of BTC (Core) as the de facto standard brand, against which all new coins will always be compared and considered alts.

The message should be loud and clear to people wanting to fork off the mainline of BTC – you don't control the situation no matter who you are, and your newly-minted coin is going to be considered the weaker, junior alt.

If those wishing to fork for whatever reasons were truly smart they would figure out how to help core implement things that will allow them to have profitable side businesses, rather than polluting the ecosystem with more silly altcoins.
