Ethereum is so fucked. It's inevitable at this point. How do we profit?
>>
>>2558323

Question really is. How can we trust a coin that has gotten hacked (dao) and now has caused people to lose millions due to one dump?

While innocent little BTC got fcked, not due to it's own doing, but due to a Jew exchange.

Tell me. What will happen to ETH?
>>
sell and hop on the litecoin rocketship to the moon that is about to happen
>>
>>2558323
I regret not selling at 420, got greedy.

Seriously bros, how is Ether meant to solve the scalability issue? It doesn't even have fucking public dapps on the blockchain yet, and FUCKING MIST DOESN'T WORK, it takes forever to sync. This thing, as of right now ,is garbage and is fundamentally the same coin it was when it was trading for $11 when I first bought in back in February.

True.
>>
>>2558461
Yeah, of course it is. But the price is built on hype, let's be real. The only difference between $11 ETH and $400 ETH is hype. There have been no major technical breakthroughs. In fact, we've regressed, because not even the fucking native wallet client, MIST, works now.

I am was holding yesterday a worth around 200k in that nothing-for-the-future btc (apart from being expensive but thats it) and now I buy with it all dem cheap eth. I expect it to moon between august and september, not due to bitcoin´s depressive wave with all that segwit2x or that shit. Guess what it is.

Exactly what I did. Just sold half my Ether stack, just in case ETH has some miraculous recovery, but I'm losing confidence, desu.

>>
>>2558392

Caused people to lose millions? You mean like how McDonalds caused people to be fat? Get the fuck out of here.... everyone who lost a huge amount of money with eth today only has themselves to blame.
>>
>>2558392
You're mistaken and don't understand the technology

Ethereum was not hacked. The DAO smart contract, which is completely unrelated to Ethereum itself but is simply a smart contract that was deployed on the Ethereum network, had a bug in it that a hacker exploited. Not Ethereum itself. The smart contract.
>>
ETH IS A MESS
>>
>>2558594
That is the truth but so many people think "ETH got hacked." I wish it was easier to explain to the idiots.
>>
lol I wonder how many threads like this were made about BTC in the last 8 years, see its value now. I'm holding, every new ICO depends on ETH, so either we crash and burn or go to Jupiter. Remember, this is still in development. You think Facebook mooned in a couple months?
>>
>>2558594
>smart contract unrelated to Ethereum

Are you fucking stupid? The whole reason Ethereum exists is to utilize smart contract functionality through the use of Solidity and related compilers. The DAO was built natively in the Ethereum virtual machine, using Ethereum protocol, and Ethereum programming languages. Of course it's related to Ethereum you imbecile, it IS Ethereum!
>>
>>2558594
>>2558618

doesn't it indicate something when the foundation itself can't even put together a secure contract on the ethereum network? it seems to me right now that turing-completeness is a bigger headache than it's worth, considering all that they have been able to write thus far are erc20's

Why then they forked ethereum, not the dao? For the lulz?
>>
Just got started. Would this be a good time to buy ETH? Or just stick with BTC?
>>
>>2558648
No, you don't understand. The DAO was a smart contract deployed on ETH, and this smart contract itself had a bug in it

What you're saying is basically "Someone wrote a program in C++ and the program had a bug, therefore C++ is broken!"

Nothing was wrong with Ethereum itself, just the DAO smart contract
>>
>>2558686
I went all in ETH yesterday because I have high hopes between aug. to sep. for ethereum. You say where you are, I want so see what happens to the other side, would be boring if everyone was on one side winning or losing.
>>
>>2558682

DAO can't be forked when it's a smart contract. Doesn't work that way.

My point in saying that ETH was hacked, was to say that's what people are thinking when trading.

There has been to much bad rep put onto ETH.
>>
>>2558655
It does indicate something but I don't know if I'd go that far. But it doesn't indicate Ethereum itself is broken as other anon said.

>>2558682
You can't fork a smart contract that doesn't even make sense. I personally don't know whether they made the right choice. Idealistically I say the made the wrong one, but realistically this could have crippled Ethereum early on. It's a bad situation overall but it doesn't indicate anything bad about Ethereum itself
>>
>>2558731
I don't think they're undertsnading the simple fact that ethereum is a PLATFORM and it is only due to the human eroor that constructed the smart contract as such that the security of the contarct could be under mined by neferious figures .
>>
>>2558916
It's understandable and you can't really fault them for not completely understanding it

Full comprehension of Ethereum basically requires a Bachelor's in CS at the very least, or a lot of self studying.
>>
>>2558916
see >>2558655

maybe the platform itself is a problem

maybe it's better to have tighter blockchain protocols for security and then figure out how to allow the individual blockchains to interoperate
>>
I think I saw somewhere that the ETH came from the Genesis block(idk what word to use). Isn't that founders only? So doesn't that mean that Vitalik or one of his co-founders took advantage of everybody?
>>

then why would you buy yesterday? its going to dip even more, that is 100% sure

it's very clear you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about and you're just repeating false information you read on 4chan as if it's reality. i hope to god you are not making actual financial decisions based on fud and trollposts on this website

do you honestly think vitalik and a co-founder would be so fucking stupid as to sell off a pile of eth that big all the way down to $10? as much money as they made, they could have made WAY, WAY, WAY fucking more. there are literally thousands of transactions on the genesis block

furthermore, did you see how quickly eth bounced back after that massive sell off all the way down to $10 you stupid fucking faggot?

do you know whta that means?

it means there's a lineup around the block, circling a thousand times over, of people tryying to buy eth. eth's price dropped today because of BACKORDERS AND AN ICO CLOGGING THE SYSTEM. NOT PEOPLE PANIC SELLING AND THE FOUNDER JUMPING SHIP LFMAO

Eth isn't going to make anyone a quick buck right now while they work on their excessive congestion and orders, but oyu're a stupid fucking nigger if you think ether will be less than $500 by october

lol no shit. You just finding this out now? Dev teams don't care about coin prices. Eth is not designed to cater speculation.

>>2559072
From what I understand:

He sold a massive amount, which dropped the price quite low (mid 200s?) this kicked in a bunch of loss-prevention mechanisms people had set up to sell if the value dropped suddenly, which caused a snowballing effect dropping the price all the down to 0.1 as all buy orders were filled and a surplus was created, and then the market stabilized after the sales finished and climbed back to normal-ish.

It's inflated because of ICOs. Especially (((Bancor))) caused the $400 peak. But there is no real value in it just greed, you can see it on /biz/. (((Bancor)))-Shills dreaming about x10 and Lamboland, not realizing that they already lost 20% due to ETh dropping.

So all these ICOs are stacked on ETH like a card house. If one shits the bed, it will all collapse.
>>
>>2561259
I don't understand how it works. So things like Status or Bancor. How do they make the price go up? When they're in the pre-buying phase? And then what makes ETH price drop? When the ICO is released to the public?

>And then what makes ETH price drop?

if you think its going to crash just short it and shut up about it, everybodys always talking about how its going to crash but never shows proof that they went short on it...why? because you are all scared and don't even believe your own FUD.

>inb4 they can't fork a smart contract
That's the point. They had to make "Tokens" for smart contracts instead of having ETH backed by every smart contract.
Since then ETH is entirely hype and people not understanding that ETH Tokens by nature have to have more value than ETH (because they're backed by their function not by the ability to run arbitrary functions).
