Ryan Selkis, CoinDesk's Managing Director and one of the significant members of crypto social media community, has posted a tweet concerning the value of two top cryptocurrencies. Thus, the man claims that Ethereum may be more valuable than Bitcoin is now.
I think ETH may be more valuable than BTC now. Anyone who knows me knows how utterly insane that is for me to say vs Jan 1 or even Aug 1.

Selkis also adds in the comments that his "BTC is getting largely reallocated to XMR/ZEC".
On top of that, CoinDesk's Managing Director touches upon the SegWit2x topic saying that "he's afraid 2x will succeed, or if it fails miners will attack Core chain". Cryptocurrency Security Consultant, Sergio Demian Lerner, remarks on SegWit2x:
What gives Bitcoin value is that if it is attacked, and it does not withstand the attack, there are some devs that will fix it quickly. We're waiting until the bcash/2x/core fork saga clears a bit to launch the platform. A peg cannot withstand a split.

Charlie Lee, the Litecoin creator also known as one of the most honest developers in the cryptocurrency world, also comments on the post suggesting launching "it on Litecoin first as they can help test it out and have no fork drama".
