Numerai is one of the first examples I have seen where the clear endgame is a product for AIs.

Ethereum was the first thing to me to come along [after Bitcoin] and create something with capabilities so new that it was worth adding [to Coinbase]. Allowing arbitrary programs is amazing, fiddling with block time/inflation rate is not.

[T]he future is thousands/millions of cryptoassets like we have millions of apps and websites but very few base networks. This mostly looks like assets being built on top of Ethereum at the moment.

[B]itcoin as a payment system is just one of the potential applications of the network. To cap Bitcoin’s value here would be like saying that the Internet, in the early days, was only as valuable as its ability to send email in a more efficient way than fax or snail mail. Bitcoin is valuable as a currency because of the economic efficiencies the Bitcoin network is already creating as transactions flow over it. As with the Internet, more applications will flourish which will make the Bitcoin network, and thus Bitcoin as a currency, valuable.

The Internet enables decentralized distribution of data. Bitcoin enables decentralized proof and transfer of ownership.
