Tether is a systemic risk in that if it explodes, billions of dollars could effectively disappear and cause exchange insolvencies. An alternative to Tether hugely reduces that risk.

The Gemini dollar is the best argument against the BTC as a SoV thesis.

Bitcoiners like to point to Venezuela and Turkey as nations primed for hyper-bitcoinization.

The Gemini dollar enables easier hyper-dollarization, which, at least in the short term, is more attractive to many.

Also the Gemini Dollar is great for Ethereum adoption vs Bitcoin adoption.

One of EOSβ€˜s greatest strengths is in having 21+ independent, accountable, and well-financed teams like @EOS_Canada & @eosnewyork to help provide user support, develop infrastructure, and market the platform.

Ethereum Classic is the worst of both Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Not as secure and immutable as Bitcoin, nor as aggressive as Ethereum in making the platform valuable for development.

I can’t find a single interesting project building on ETC. Not one.

BNB’s value is driven by more than the cash being returned to investors by Binance. BNB has tremendous utility and is used as:

- Staking token – Users who hold a significant amount of BNB get discounted fees on the exchange according to a set schedule
- Discount token – users who pay their exchange fees with BNB get a discount
- Payment token – trading fees on the Binance Chain can be paid with BNB

The only dimension in which DAI is better than USDC or GUSD is censorship resistance. Anonymity provides censorship resistance.

There will be cheap collateralized loans available with fiat coins too, Maker is not unique there. Eg: one could borrow USDC against ETH using Dharma. Therefore anonymous fiat coins are a pareto improvement to MakerDAO and DAI. Literally better in every single way.
