    Perhaps the most amazing thing about Ethereum is that it has both a strong community and a very aggressive product vision.

    That may be the winning combo.

    Current market prices imply that Ethereum is going to be the runaway market leader for smart contract platforms. This is not a given. There are many secular trends at the demand level, supply level, and security level that commoditize most of Ethereum’s perceived advantages. Ethereum will not be the sole smart contract platform. That’s not to say Ethereum isn’t here to stay or that Ethereum won’t thrive. I wouldn’t bet against Ethereum. But there will be huge opportunities for non-Ethereum smart contract platforms. Ethereum will not be the one smart contract platform to rule them all.

Seems pretty reasonable to me that almost all PoW-GPU coins that aren't ETH are prone to being 51% attacked, at least until ETH moves to full PoS, at which point it's likely to become XMR I think (could be even sooner depending on FFG economics).

I don't know that much about NEO, but I'm generally skeptical. I also generally don't care for this author but figured I'd share. NEO holders, beware.

The collateralized model (e.g. MKR, and not Tether) is fundamentally hard to argue against.

The best venture investment of the last three years wasn't a venture deal. Ethereum — 750x, liquid, and open to all.

I have often said that Ethereum is doing it right throughout the DAO fork, and Bitcoin devs, with their fetishistic dependence on "the longest chain," their inability to change ancient code, and their obvious conflicts of interest, are on weak ground.

Every 10-15 years, there’s a major new transition. . . . To me, Ethereum is the most important technology of the decade, for sure. I don’t even think it’s going to be questionable.
