Zcash is Bitcoin plus three enhancements:

Selective transparency
GPU mining to prevent centralization
Potentially more effective governance

. . . Zcash is the super-set of Bitcoin.

Countless people must migrate to support family. The cost to remit? An entire month's pay.

Bitcoin—as a global, free, instantaneous payment rail—will help many expatriate families retain hard-earned income.

Essentially free and instantaneous to Skype anywhere on Earth—but sending $300 internationally takes days and costs a meaningful chunk.

Dai  [is]  an asset-backed, hard currency and the first decentralized stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain. Effectively, the stablecoin is backed by over-collateralizing the system with other crypto-assets. Despite blathering by bloggers, Dai remains valued at one US dollar, thereby retaining its peg.

In general, I think cash and payments are one of the last areas blockchain will affect. . . . While Bitcoin may win digital gold, I don’t think it’ll succeed as money: it’s too volatile, isn’t designed to be money, and has no dynamic monetary policy (which is part of why gold was abandoned as a form of payment in society).

A permissionless dapp/protocol like 0x or Augur could barely run on EOS, and would probably eventually get censored by the block producers at some point. EOS has played with the slider between centralization / decentralization and scalability. *That is not innovation!* Innovating is when you do something new and do something that makes things better *without* having to face some severe tradeoff.
