What are these 'fundamental' factors? To me it looks like regulation is going to kill the crypto market in a few years
No, regulations is one of the fundamental factor which I am talking about in favour of cryptomarket.
First of all, regulation doesn't mean ban and no one or no country can ban cryptocurrecies in any way, because that is the nature of cryptocurrencies and hence, there is nothing like killing of crypto market. But of course, these regulations can slow down the rate of growth of crypto market which is in a way positive for crypto growth in long run.
But regulations are important to build trust of people on crypto currencies, otherwise, many booms and bursts along the way can make the investors loose trust in them. Because as I mentioned many times in this thread almost 95% of the existing cryptocurrencies are either a copy of other crypto or simple scams to take out money from investors without having any significant use case of their own. This is what is causing massive up and down ride in cryptos.
When we are talking about daily usage of cryptos similar to regular currencies we are talking in terms of trillions and not billions and crypto total market has not even reached 1 trillion yet. So there is a long way to go and regulations are important for each country to build trust among users.
Though there are many other fundamental factors to be discussed, but I hardly get anytime to do a research on them and also I avoid doing so now because crypto is still going through a correction and so there will be no instant effect on the market due to the fundamental changes. But in long run will have great positive impact.
Some of the examples are adoption and introduction and legalisation of cryptos by companies, banks, governments etc. Note that even if
Another fundamental change is introduction of Bitcoin lightning network which can be introduced in very near future and I am not aware of exactly what is going on now regarding this.
