Why did 4K60 become a standard spec? 60 FPS is in the dead zone of frame rates.

I am not a serious videographer, but I do watch a good bit of content and it seems like 24-30 FPS is the standard. For slow mo it seems like 120 FPS is the bare minimum. 60 FPS seems like a weird middle ground... it looks a little unnatural and isn't fast enough for slow mo. Why did 4K60 become a standard for all manufacturers to hit? I feel like it would be more useful to have, for example, 10 bit full width 4K30P than slightly cropped 8 bit 4K60P for example. Can videographers chime in?
