Monero is so centralized & editable its devs can clandestinely plan surprise hard forks without miner manufacturers finding out about. Good luck having that kind of shitcoin sustain any kind of government attack.....Anonymity is not a switch you can flick on.

Researching altcoins & astonished at their idiocy. Ripple is even stupider than Ethereum, but Steem has got to be the stupidest of them all.

While I still believe Litecoin is just another pointless alt, I think @SatoshiLite genuinely believes it's digital silver & it helps BTC.

Augur is an excellent example of a thoroughly stupid idea masquerading as a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, like all ICOs. The only point to its existence is to allow the scammers behind it to sell a ponzi token destined to go to zero in the hands of suckers

Bitcoin isn't "cool" or "awesome" new tech. It's an ugly contraption optimized to be neutral apolitical money, not for your user experience. It's not the toy you want, it's the medicine you need. Like it or not, it's your best chance for living in a free market with sound money.
