[Golem] is a decentralized way of using your spare computing power in conjoined effort with any other member of the community to help massive projects otherwise impossible to accomplish. I like conservation in software.

I like Verge. Having difficulty acquiring it though.

DOGE is an investment in the playful spirit that nourished the early developers and adopters of cryptocurrerncy. Sadly, that smiling spirit has been largely replaced by seriousness, anger and dry self-interest.

With Bitcoin or Ethereum, once you have transacted anything with your wallet, the person you transacted with can look at your wallet, see how much is in there, see how much you're spending, see which wallet it's going to, [and] see how much you've received.

If your bank provided that information to anybody who wanted it, would you be happy with your bank? I don't think so.

With privacy coinsβ€”and I keep saying Monero was the first and I still think the best, certainly the one used the most on the dark web . . . β€” nobody can see anything.

You can give them your wallet and they can see jack shit about what's in yours. They don't know who you are or where you came from. People looking at it don't know what you bought, who you bought it from, or what you sold or who you sold it to.

Ethereum is trashed more than any currency, and yet no currency is more necessary and central due to its smart contract platform that is used by more than 50% of all new altcoins. It's like everyone values water, but not the containers it is carried in.

Lumen (XLM) - called Stellar by some - though Stellar is the name of the network that created the coins. One of the fastest and cheapest crypto transactions. Lumens facilitate the financing of Third World projects and is called by some β€œThe next Bitcoin”.
