Now you're talking 

it's nice this crypto is getting a little bit of exposure.

does seem sort of curious we were having similar discussions on the bubbly bitcoin thread in the beginning.

a little bit of skepticism.reticence is healthy IMO.

also nice to see a few MSM articles on these guys doing the rounds.ETH v IOT looks like it will become the intel v AMD of transactions! we will have to see which one shapes up best.

There are people.who make stuff and generate wealth. Then there are people who skim off those who make stuff and wealth. Which are you?

there are those who have a good idea and seek it for the betterment of society,there are those who come just behind them and will weaponise it.

I am saying this technology does have some potential,but sent in the wrong direction could be abused.As far as investment is concerned I am neutral

mods i understand gold and bitcoin being on the front-page, but does a no-name alt-coin pumper deserve to be on the front page? 

At least bitcoin *MIGHT* actually eventually act to bring house prices down eventually. 

hi JJ.

might have to disagree with you on this one.OK bitcoin as it was in real terms if you invested at the right time HAS brought house prices down considerably.we need to look at crypto's as an asset class by themselves now,and compared to other traditional investment methods.

would concur these are high risk trades.

bitcoin had first mover advantage in it's field,but you can't condemn out of the box something which has a completely different application.

 

maybe set up another thread for these?

I'd say there are those with a good idea for the betterment for society, and those looking to exploit those with a good idea for the betterment for society. 

Take the finacialisation industry. No one making anything of value or worth there. Just spending all thier time and energy using people who actually make stuff of value or worth.

Get off your horse sir. Who are you to decide which is the right crypto-currency?

Today in the news: Venezuela will soon introduce the Petro - an oil-backed crypto. Maybe even one, that will have an option to go hyper.

Now, on the bitbugs’ thread they said, there is only one crypto, and it has a finite supply. :D

Okay, gonna stay with the shiny yellow one, plus some shiny white one.
