The chances of Decred outcompeting Bitcoin are close to zero.

Mob rule/the rule of the rich is not ideal for neo-gold.

Speed is mostly irrelevant for SoV.

It's all about security + disinflation + proven unchangeability . . . BTC beats Nano by an enormous margin.

Holding Nano as a bet it can become a "SoV" when BTC exists is irrational, dangerous, risky.

Dash sucks, premined, shit privacy. ZEC/XMR far better.

Bitcoin exists not only on the technological layer but even more importantly, on the social layer. It is open-source software. If there is truly a technological breakthrough, it can simply be added to bitcoin.

Ethereum is between a rock and a hard place.

It isn’t as good at being SoV / Sound Money as BTC, and it is likely not going to be as smooth / cheap / frictionless at being a DApp platform as more centralized platforms like EOS.

BTC has a clear pathway to becoming an actual money. The way value accrues to VET is totally unknown.
