Commentary

BTC and ETH are still the safest bet

ADA has gained a lot so far

Scam projects like Bitconnectttttt deserved to go and the owners go to jail

TRX is an outlier here

Many top projects back then are still not recovering to its 2017 ATH, even though they are legitimate projects. Some have lost over 80% token value (which means they need to increase by over 500% to reach previous ATH) such as DASH, PPT.
