    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.

    Ethereum's platform has the potential to become a World Computer, and I can see tens of thousands more apps being built on top of it, with ETH representing real technological utility value, not just a psychological one.

💩

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.

🔑

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.
