Has blockchain peaked with cryptocurrency?

Will other uses of the underlying tech prove more valuable?

There is undoubtedly a drive to make the most out of blockchain with smart contracts and other transactions but will it really prove to be the saving grace it gets hyped up to be?

My own opinion is that this is the Marmite of the current tech talks; you get some who live and love it, and you get some who simply laugh at the rhetoric and promise. Let me know which side you fall into.
