Does anyone else think that Ripple could be n.o 1 crypto this yr?

If Ripple has any value, it won't be for another few years. Very little real use case for 2018. Only speculation.

 

Coin to watch for 2018 is EOS. If Dan Larimer can actually get it up and running it is going to pummel Ethereum. Given a choice between EOS and Ethereum, there is no choice. Ethereum will go the way of buggy whips.

 

I agree and disclose that I own EOS. 

 

Ethereum is retarded and just look at what happened with cryptokitties. Last year I thought that ethereum was trying to do too much too fast. I have a soft dev background. Too many bugs in Ethereum... Its price has crashed back down to realistic levels now.

Naturally you have absolutely no interest in any particular  cryptocurrency.  Neutral party?

 

Pumping is not allowed.

I bought some Ripple and have come to the conclusion I bought a dud coin, it has done nothing but crash since I bought into it, just another Shitcoin that is tied into traditional banking.

I hold over a dozen different coins, so I am hoping that at least one of them comes good in the long run, I'm in this for the long game.

Ah so you are the person who caused it to crash!!555. The crypto market has been hot for the last twelve months, now we are seeing the correction with the short term speculation taken out of it, where each currency will perform on it's merits. I cashed in most of mine when the slide started, Ripple is the only one I kept as I had a modest amount so I thought I will hang on and see what happens when growth starts again. I think I will be also buying back into Ethereum soon as well.

The moment Banks will see the system as useful they can create a similar by themselves. And those value "coins" are distributed by those Banks. And the Ripple? Worthless!

It could be property. It could be shares.

In fact, it could be any asset that can be tokenised on a blockchain.” 

How do you convert property into digital tokens?

 

Sure, you can make a ledger showing who owns which property, but how is that ledger going to stop me from squatting on your physical property?

 

You need someone to enforce what is written in the ledger, so we need to have courts and the police enforce it, and if we trust these authorities, why would we need the “trustless” ledger in the first place? It adds no value whatsoever, as the courts and police can be corrupt even with a trustless distributed ledger.

 

The same goes for your shares example. I can start a company and sell you 50% of the shares which we record in a blockchain. But that will not stop me from distributing 100% of the profits to myself. To avoid that, we need a legal system, not a blockchain.

Don't own a single coin of it actually. I won't buy any either until Dan proves he can make it work. Don't encourage anyone else to buy any either, but as I said, it is the coin to watch.

 

Also, as an aside, I do not trade coins. I am one of those old school geeks who actually looks for value and holds. I leave trading and pumping to everyone else. If EOS works, Ethereum is doomed. Wait for the 'if' before you act.

I got out of stock marked before the fall in 2008, and never returned back. So happy I followed my gut back then. I know it was pure luck, but I had the feeling for a long time. About Bitcoins, my gut say it is a pure pyramide game you place your money in to. I would say good luck to all of you who dream about fast money and easy woman. 

 

I will continue to buy gold and silver coins to invest for future.

It was pure bad luck for you. You missed out on a 9 yr bull run in the U.S stock markets and global markets from 2009 onwards. Easiest money Ive ever made. I disclose that I sold everything in Jan this yr

We can argue about me getting out before, or getting in after, or where do you want to start?

I know a fellow who invests in the negative.   

 

He invested in companies that were focusing on dealing with the Y2K event.   He was  very disappointed when the entire world was not fractured because of  the ruse of the whole Y2k thing.   I told him at the time that he was sick to wish the world suffered so he could gain a few dollars.

 

He next went after oil stocks and hoped the price of gasoline  would reach incredible levels.     In the meantime,   he bought a Prius and  hoped gas prices in the USA would reach 20 USD a gallon.   That doesn't  talk about the prices in much  of the rest of the world which mostly are far higher.

 

Then he went for gold and hoped the economy's of the world would collapse and his    gold coins would have incredible value.    He was convinced gold would actually be "cheap" at $20,000 an ounce.  Needless to say I disagree.

 

 

Then  he told me he hoped to figure out how he could profit from hurricanes in one year  where it was  expected or predicted to be  unusual hurricane activity on the USA Eastern coast.

 

Different people have different ideas about investing.

 

I don't think I could feel good about investing with hopes for the negative.
