Ignore the naysayers they will die poor and still be saying nay like fucking sheep when Ethereum is running the back end of their shitty stock markets and the company they work for is directed by a complex of trustless smart contracts.
It's easy OP. You are probably too dumb to get it, just as the rest of /biz/, but the big picture is:
1) Get 21 BTC, 2) Hold them for 10 years, 3) Retire as a part of the "1 million club" in the most important network on the planet. (Note: NEVER sell 100% of your Bitcoins ever, goverment issued currencies will never be as valuable as Bitcoin anymore, in a post Bitcoin-environment. 50% is as much as you should ever sell, guaranteeing that this 50% retires you -50% of 21BTC in 2026 will retire you-).
You can still do it while the entry price is doable for a non-already-rich person.
You can either do this, or become increasingly butthurt and enjoy the losser grandpa team.
BTC is down because the network cannot satisfy demand and scaling a decentralized network involves uncertainty and risk.
If the Bitcoin community can jump these hurdles (1-2 month time frame) BTC will break $500 - and I believe strongly they will.
ETH is more than just another altcoin but its price right now is driven by speculators who know nothing about its actual application. Ask anyone shilling ETH on /biz/ what makes ETH special and they'll shout MUH DECENTRALIZATION but understand absolute nothing about the underlying technology.
The Ethereum network sounds promising but its primary goal is to facilitate decentralized applications, not act as a store of value. I think ETH's price will eventually be derived from the value of what that amount of ETH can accomplish computationally on the network - not hold "intrinsic" value like BTC.
BTC is the "gold" of the crypto-world. I see ETH more as "electricity" than a competing precious metal. That's not to say ETH isn't a good buy right now - but buy it because you understand its application, not because MUH BITCOIN 2.0.
