But the company is managing a β€œbridge currency” [XRP] that they package to retail investors who buy on the assumption that they are front-running big bank purchasers.

NEO's "Ethereum but China" pitch reminds me of Litecoin's "Bitcoin but Scrypt" pitch in 2013. A long, dark winter followed.

Super bullish on tokens that must be staked as part of ML tournaments, like proof-of-human-work. Aside from Numerai, who's doing it well?

Very few token projects are producing or even planning to produce cash flow for holders. But CF doesn't preclude a token from being a utility: Filecoin, Golem, Numerai, etc., are utilities that should be CF+. Instead, we've written off revenue generation . . . just like the dot-bombs.

Dai survived one of its most significant tests in 2018. β€œCan Dai survive a market crash?” Asked and answered. Dai survived the 94% drawdown in ETH, and the move from a single-collateral to multi-collateral model should accelerate its adoption in 2019.

EOS will surpass ETH. EOS could surpass ETH in DApp activity; as serenity delays continue, developer mindshare will wander; EOS smart contracts use C++ and compile into WebAssembly (better dev experience); on-chain governance works in EOS [and] isn’t close in ETH.
