Why havent you invested in glorious computer money "EFEREUM". Yet?

Do you hate money? Do you want to die a poor penniless nocoiner?

There's a million permutations. You might as well buy some ethereum
>>
>>1086854
seriously isn't this a pump and dump?
>>
>>1086855
No it's not. It's going to be much bigger than bitcoin ever was.

The market cap is only just over $300million and by the end of the year it will be over a billion if not a lot more.

Notice how i said "a lot" instead of "alot" I spell correctly because I am not a retard and you should listen to what I'm telling you.
>>
>>1086861
can you really convince me?

why is the price spiking?
>>
>>1086864
Due to speculation.

Not without good reason though. The usecases of ethereum are many, and it is far easier to develop on than bitcoin.

Also, there are signs that banks will be using ethereum software, via consensys, an ethereum startup, to create their own permissioned interbank ledger sytem which would mean frictionless transfer of assets from bank ledger to public ethereum blockchain and vice versa.

All it takes is for a single one of the many distributed applications being developed on ethereum to become popular to take ether market cap to the tens of billions
>>
>>1086877
Would you buy eth? And how much would you buy if you had 5k
>>
>>1086890
If I had 5k to my name I would buy 1 or 2 grands worth.

If I had 5K to speculate with, I'd put it all in to the one thing I know will pay off hugely and that is Ethereum.

I did not buy Ethereum on hype. I bought it when it was totally unknown because I liked the ideas and I had a feeling the development team knew their shit.
>>
>>1086896
And thanks to that gut feeling my initial investment is now worth 18X its value and I know in my heart of hearts that it's only a matter of time before it's 180X or 1800X
>>
I think the idea of it reaching 100 bucks is insane, 15 bucks no sweat. But triple digits is out of the question.
>>
>>1086905
If it reaches the same market cap as bitcoin which it could easily do within a year or two, the value of each ETH would be close to $100.

And Ethereum has a strong likelyhood of becoming much much bigger than bitcoin due to it's much wider range of functions and ease of application
>>
Personally i have no intention of selling any ether for at least 18 months. In 18 months I will be able to judge if the project is likely to succeed or fail. Right now it's only just getting started.

Selling now would be like playing deal or no deal and accepting the bankers offer when the first box is opened.
>>
>>1086908
>ease of application

Still waiting on an online wallet.

Nevertheless, it's strong support and financial backing into it's ecosystem is the only thing that's got my attention. Also, as another anon mentioned in another thread: great ideas aren't inherently successful.
>>
>>1086911

How much money have you put into ether thus far?
>>
>>1086911
Agreed. Best of luck to us both, albeit I'm rather pessimistic.
>>
>>1086921
Not much. I invested a couple of bitcoins in the presale stage and I paid for a year mining contract when the price was $0.8

By the way, if anyone wants a way to lock in cheap ether supply for an entire year at todays prices no matter the price in the future you can buy a mining contract from 'genesis mining'

I feel honour bound to promote that company since they are now mining ether for me at a massive loss

And it's probably the cheapest way for a non technical person to obtain ether

>>1086918
There are already many many clever developers applying ethereum to real world applications in interesting and potentially highly profitable ways.

These dapps could outcompete the entire glut of sharing economy apps and steal their market share of 10's of billions.

Decentralised airbnb, decentralised uber. Etc. It would outcompete them by being much More profitable for the provider and cheaper for the user.

Thats a paper about the problems with bitcoin and existing cryptoeconomic systems

It shows that the ethereum developers are solving these problems step by step.

Ethereum is still in development but they have solved wuite a number of these issues and will continue on that front.

Ethereum is serious computer science not some copy and paste shitcoin my friend.

I think it will be growing for months. I would only begin consider shorting if it hits $60, and would only enter a trade if it reaches $150.
For now I will buy a little and see what happens since it's so cheap.
If it grows but doesn't even break the $20s I won't do anything.

The biggest player, IBM pulled out of this gay meme made by autistic devs who can't even explain what it is. The shills understand just enough about it to make it sound attractive and no more. They don't know what they're shilling, Bitcoin was more straightforward and never took off, you think this clusterfuck which is a year old with not even a wallet will ever do anything? God am I happy I decided not to buy. Dump your ETH now and go make some big boy real investments, not nonsensical bullshit peddled by retards.

Yeah its just going to keep going up and up isn't it. It'll be Bitcoin lite, it may go up, but then just slowly burn out like Bitcoin did. Being remembered as just a social experiment.

Daily reminder that ETH was premined the fuck out of and the devs will make much money off your incompetence and naivety while blaming the eventual failure on some legal shit or lack of backing.

Why would anyone buy into IBMs centralised ledger.

It's not even a cryptocurrency

This is quite far fetched FUD
>>
>>1087207

Its not supposed to be a cryptocurrency for kids to trade back and forth. You best believe that big business will favor this over fucking Ethereum.

IBM have basically taken a mix of concepts and turned it corporate-friendly, corporate support is the only thing that matters. IBM has its expertise and its name to its advantage, what does the Ethereum project have? A handful of unknown devs who can't even explain what it is who also changed their mind halfway through about what Ethereum even WAS and a few thousand neckbeards on the internet.
>>
>>1087213
Uhuh and there are a million conpanies in this "corporate ledger" space. What makes you think microsoft or google will adopt IBMs centralised shitpile?

Far more likely that ethereum being the only player in the game with a proven tested programmable blockchain in the real world right now will begin to set industry standards as they are doing so already.

>>
>>1087222

They don't have to, they can make their own. My point is that big tech business will never buy into ETH because why would they? They have the resources to make their own. Without the backing and the capital investment of big business to prop it up ETH will flop harder than your dick after your grandma jerks your boner.

The Ethereum project did indeed prove the concept, they did the hard work for free and now, big business will reap the benefits and mold it for themselves.
>>
>>1087241
>>1087247
All we can do is see what will happen.

I personally will still support a free decentralised blockchain over whatever centralised shitpile someone like IBM cooks up.
>>
>>1087251

Learn from past events. Bitcoin did not live up to what it said it would have. This technology that Ethereum has developed will just be stolen and adapted by big business. You personally aren't what matters for the life of blockchain technology, big money matters, long term interest from big companies.

Even if I liked ETH I can't deny it'll get crushed by IBM. Ethereum wanted to create something that would upset many establishments, it never flies. Instead the establishment take the idea. It happens with tech all the time.
>>
>>1087255
The world does not revolve around IBM. An open source blockchain is far more likely to be adopted widely.
>>
>>1087258

Did you even read the first line in the article?

>"IBM has announced that it will soon release its own, open source version of blockchain software"

IBM have released many open source projects before this wouldn't be the first.

So what's Ethereum's advantage now?
>>
>>1087263
Go and buy shares in IBM then. No ones stopping you.

Ethereums advantage is that it's decentralised and censorship proof.
>>
>>1087269

>Ethereums advantage is that it's decentralised and censorship proof.

Those aren't things big business care about. Ethereum will stay in hobby mode then fade away, sorry friend.

It's something small businesses care about, which is enough to drive up the value of ETH. Nevertheless, I believe I read something regarding MS' interest in ETH.

There's room for two decentralized blockchains. But you have prompted my interest in IBM's project. Looking forward to hear more about it, and will likely invest in both ETH and IBM.

Ethereum has myriad applications beyond being some sort of tool of other big businesses.

It doesn't really shake my confidence in ethereum.

To grow bigger than bitcoin, IBMs participation is not nessesary at all.

People are building killer apps on the ethereum platform right now.

it has no current competitors.

I did just speculate and gamble 1400 on buying 300 or something eths. Will just set a sell order for 2x the money and leave it. I'm pretty sure there will be lots of shilling in the future for this crypto and sooner or later it will raise to 2x and I will double my money.

Can someone explain to me how ETH is supposed to usurp BTC as the main crypto currency?

All I keep hearing are buzzwords. And from what I understand ETH is used mainly as a programming platform for smart contracts, so it really is more of a niche coin like namecoin which may be useful but never become as popular as the main cryptocurrency.

There's so much functionality built in to the protocol. The only way this doesn't eventually take off is if someone else beats them to it and gets adopted more widely. Bitcoin is a flip phone and Ethereum is a Nexus 6p. Ethereum's structure is built so that bloated transactions cost more money to execute. You are compelled to be efficient when executing contracts and transfers because it costs you less money to do so. Bitcoin has become bloated with no such checks.

Also, no other crypto besides Bitcoin and Ethereum are even on the radar. Look up the volume and market caps of all the altcoins. Ethereum is the only one making a dent. Just wait until China gets in on this rocket.

Sure. Heard of Satoshi Nakamoto? That's actually Nick Szabo. It's p well known by people closely involved in Ethereum world (who btw are geniuses)

https://www.quora.com/Is-Satoshi-Nakamoto-now-with-about-1B-in-Bitcoins-really-Nick-Szabo

See the second answer. Here he is giving a talk at Ethereum's last dev conference:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Y3fWXA6d5k

Keep in mind that this guy is unofficially working on an Ethereum project and Consensys is in talks with all the major banks/regulatory bodies/other institutions trying to promote Ethereum.

Szabo was the guy who invented the concept of smart contracts

Szabo IS satoshi. Bitcoin was an experiment between Szabo, Hal finney and Wei dai.

Wei dai invented hash cash, hal finney was the first person to ever recieve a bitcoin transaction. It was sent from...his programming buddy Nick Szabo aka satoshi nakamoto

I actually spoke with the IBM guy that's been quoted as evidence of them pulling out.

/spoiler/

They're experimenting with their own blockchain technology right now. They aren't ruling Ethereum out. The major concern that the guy cited was confidentiality concerns that IBM's clients had which seems like a valid concern from now. He seemed pretty smart and basically was hinting that they'll come around to being okay with more transparency in their businesses.

If you believe the product is good and taking off like many of us it makes sense to invest what won't ruin you and stick with it for at least a year. There are some things on the horizon (like China's huge mass getting in on it in the Fall) that make it a good bet.

Im happy to see the market drop 20% it's fully over heated. No one should be buying ETH over $5 right now.

>>1092038
$5 right now is a fair price considering the potential.

I am a large ETH holder myself. $5 is not a price I would consider selling at. but it is a price people might like to buy at. I want the coins to naturally transfer from the hands of greedy traders to future long term hodlers and people who will actually use Ethereum for what it was meant for.

this kind of frothy market attracts noobs and scammers. Panic is never good and what we've been seeing is panic buying. Already read about one noob on here losing his coins because he didn't understand how myetherwallet worked.

It basically uses similar blockchain tech as Bitcoin, except the blockchain can be used to create "decentralized" programs, which essentially means that after the programs have been created, no human being can interfere with it or hack it or whatever - just thousands of PC's from all over the world "confirming" the actions taking place. That's the best explanation i can give you from a limited understanding i have of it myself.
>>
>>1093783
Ah, yeah, I forgot about the revenue aspect that comes with its useage. Still, how is that better than regular internet? I take it the ISPs will still be charging us in this grand future? So we'll pay for our internet and then we'll pay for our ether, or maybe earn it. Unless the average joe can make a surplus by just browsing the web and normal shit I don't see the incentive. And if everyone can earn a good income from that shit then that just doesn't seem realistic.
