It is interesting to note, that despite all the attention and ICO launches on the Ethereum blockchain, it's still hard to see why success in any would translate to significant gains for Ether. Serious scaling issues remain, which one way or the other, will lead to material changes in the Ethereum blockchain.

At least Etherreum has Vitalik who acts as a sort of nexus of focusing. As contrasted to Bitcoin, where it's an absolute mess.

cryptocurrencies are pyramid schemes, no one cares about use case, it's just about getting rich

ripple xrp would be the first actually useful cryptocoin that solves real world problems AND has a rational motive for price increase

not entirely in disagreement with that, neither am I fully in agreement. Potentially, Etherreum might pull a rabbit out of the hat (to avoid using another cat/bag analogy). Some of the fundamentals are there but I think the wealth should have come later. Now that they've had a taste of money before solid product, this is an issue. On multiple levels it's an issue. And yes, should it fail rapidly, your pyramid scheme comment would start leaning in more heavily. I like to think that things are more fluid than that and not black and white. Still though the blockhain's success does not equate higher price for the crypto. In 10-15 years from now, this stuff will be lessons in strategy - super interesting to watch it happen.

Its about time. Theyve seen etherium isnt ready for the next few years.

We could also use XRP as "gas" lol . Only purpose of etherium so far lol

What good is a "global computer" if you can't pay for using it in any damn currency you happen to own? And pay the lowest possible price for it.

This is like saying that everyone needs to own XRP to use Ripple network. Watching Miguel's video it is clear that users need to go through exchanges to convert from fiat to XRP first...

Codius enables smart contracts on Ripple. It's the Ethereum of Ripple - just better

How does it work? Similar as Etherium? Own coin etc.? Will there be a relation with XRP in this construction? And how will this be better than Etherium? Is there a technological edge here? Etherium got a lot of excellent developers (not a big fan of Etherium myself btw). With NEO etc., why another platform?
