If bitcoin can switch to pos or dpos and implement 2sided pegging, they will consume the industry.
It seems with blockchain 2.0 the need for change has been realized.
Is anyone else feeling the same way?

It's not a fact that they will consume the industry. Not everyone likes Bitcoin.
How many people had their Bitcoins stolen, hacked, or saw all the negative propaganda about Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is just a brand and nothing more. The technology isn't as good at Bitshares. The side chain technology is a desperate attempt to protect the Bitcoin brand for the benefit of people who have businesses which depend on SHA-256.
The rest of us don't really have to care which brand wins because the technology is more important. The people who end up using this technology might not even use it as Bitcoin. It might just be built into their browser under some other name and with a new blockchain entirely.
So altcoins aren't going away and in my opinion shouldn't. If you want maximum adoption then you want altcoins. If you want maximum decentralization then Bitcoin either has to move from SHA-256 or you're going to have a very centralized central Bitcoin infrastructure which everything depends on.
I think that is a stupid move, especially after heartbleed. The one good thing about having many coins is similar to having many Linux distros. Not everyone is going to want the same brand because in some places Bitcoin as a brand just isn't going to catch on. Everyone wants the best technology though, and if you do that right you don't have to care about the brand anymore.
Let's focus on technology and utility. If you have 10 different chains which all have better technology this is more important than if you have just a few chains doing everything all developed by the same core developers.
