1. ## Cryptocurrencies discussion

Hey all,

Anyone mining/investing in any of the latest cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum / Dash / Monero?

I made a bit of cash investing quite early in Monero

2. @anth_;

3. Not heard of Dash. But i'm pretty certain Ethereum will increase in value same as Monero did. Monero was added to one of the largest darknet sites (Alphabay) when it spurted in value. Alphabay is also adding support for Ethereum so you can almost guarantee that it'll increase too.

I'd steer clear of ethereum since the DAO got hacked a while back; same with dash -- I haven't looked into it personally but from what I've read some see it as a sham. I don't know personally, but it might be worth reading up on.

Anyway, XMR seems solid, I hang out on the IRC quite a lot and the core devs are good people

5. Oh yeah, and I was reading on bitcointalk a couple of weeks back - NEM/XEM and Iconomi had high hopes -- although I've also being looking into Lisk. It's like the wild-west though

6. Worth looking into Stratis for investment, seems to have had a pretty good growth trend

7. How often do people actually use bitcoin as a currency they hold other than a investment or to spend immediately?

8. People who fall for the alternative currency meme do quite frequently

Only times I do is due to laziness.

I really dislike the instability that's currently associated with crypto-currencies, speaking in terms of wanting to use it as a medium of exchange like USD that I can hold in reserve, even though it's usually/always been to my own slight profit in practice thus far.

I've only ever spent them immediately. The first time I bought around 25 bitcoins. I remember thinking that $3 for a virtual coin seemed like a lot 11.

It's like the wild-west though Yep Dash to me always seemed like a pump and dump. Glad to hear about the developers. I feel XMR is what Bitcoin was thought to be by most people (anonymous) but due to the blockchain it isn't really that way.. Bitcoin development seems to have some internal disputes on the way forward so I'm hoping Bitcoin users starts to trickle down into altcoins so I'm holding my XMR There was also the issue of Bitcoin crackdown in China.. LTC definitely saw a price increase due to the announcement of SegWit. I think Lisk is a good altcoin as well. The altcoins I'm watching closely at the moment are ETH, XMR & SC (SIACOIN). I also think ETH will see an increase of usage/value with the development of the raiden network.

XMR dropped a bit and has risen as well to ~20GBP! 17.

Tell meeee 18. Originally Posted by TheOsrsplayer I got a question, what do you guys think is the next cyrpto to invest in? That can still shoot up 100x????? Tell meeee Undoubtedly, Ethereum. 19. Originally Posted by TheOsrsplayer I got a question, what do you guys think is the next cyrpto to invest in? That can still shoot up 100x????? Tell meeee That is very hard to predict. @Kasi; says Etherum, I am not so sure about that, somewhat doubt it. It competes in a market where a tens of other wellknown crypto-currencies also compete, along with Etherum Classic. Stratis however is quite different from the rest, so it wont compete in the same way which makes it more likely to grow individually, however 100x, that's A LOT, specially since it has already since september grown more than 100x. But surely there is good room for growth in several crypto-currencies.. But as a currency grows larger growth will be slower, and Etherum is already quite big, quite close to the size of Bitcoin now.

Ethereum is decentralized and waaay more community based. Stratis really doesn't offer more than Ethereum. @slacky; What are Stratis' main differences? when you say it is quite different from the rest? 21.

Because it's developed for businesses using c#? 23. Some crazy drops in the past 24 hours.. Pretty amusing to see USDT which is supposed to be pegged at$1.00 at $1.07 24. Bought 867151 SIA @$0.0061 going to hold while monitoring project progress on slack.

Hoping it hits around 0.03\$ at the end of this year but this is definitely a long term hold for me.

25. @slacky I wish that I stocked up on some STRAT not doing so bad though myself!
