RT @sassal0x: "There are no insurmountable challenges left for Ethereum 2.0. What’s left is implementation details, parameterization, testing, and shipping the code. It’s just a matter of time before Ethereum scales."
Awesome article from @lrettig 👊

I don't see any 'Ethereum killers'.
The roadmap will keep ETH competitive in the future. I don't see any other platform growing beyond the success of something like NEO, which despite having a an actual "economy" of tokens and projects, is still smaller than Cardano and scamcoin er umm EOS.
I think Cardano is one of the smart contract blockchains with the most potential, along with Dfinity. But by the time it's really production ready, Ethereum will probably be way too far ahead. Dfinity on the other hand is so experimental, complex and largely unproven that developers will probably be hesitant to move to it soon. Meanwhile, Ethereum is rapidly improving on all fronts too. Nevertheless buying a little bit of both as a hedge might be a good idea.
But I was wondering are there some others the author was talking about? (Tezos isn't even worth mentioning I think.)
So be it. But I don't think there are any standards by which to call something a shitcoin. People just call whatever they don't hold shitcoins. I just chose monero because the dude seemed like a monero shill.
That said, Monero has a fundamental problem with scalability resulting from its architecture, and therefore won't be able to establish a network effect. I don't think it will be able to get rid of its volatility well enough either to be a useful currency.
Scalability is a huge issue for XMR. Not different than most other blockchain projects though imo
Just in general, you shouldn't call the only digital cash a shitcoin (despite its limitations). I think someday it'll be replaced by something better, but for now it's king
I agree really. It's definitely a valuable project, nothing wrong with it. Calling anything a shitcoin should be avoided in general, because it carries absolutely zero information. That's what I should have replied to the monero guy but got tired and annoyed.
