Rootstock Smart Contracts Platform

Not in production yet, but it looks like a promising Eth - BTC project that might be one of the first-to-market.  This claim seems impressive: 

"...RSK can scale far beyond Bitcoin in its current state. RSK scales to 100 transaction per second (same level as Paypal) without sacrificing decentralization and reducing storage and bandwidth usage using probabilistic verification and fraud proofs, as well as blockchain sharding techniques."

They bring an Ethereum clone to Bitcoin, i.e. instead of ETH, BTC is consumed as gas. It's obviously not to the liking of Ethereum. Basically bytecode processing on blockchain can run anywhere, and Ethereum is not much more than a bytecode compiler in this context. Rootstock runs on a sidechain like blockstream, they are usurping Bitcoin, hard to predict what this means for Bitcoin in med to long term....

So far the Ethereum project  did not "attack" Bitcoin. But the Bitcoiners do not love Ethereum, and with Rootstock they extend into their realm. Maybe a Ripple-Ethereum alliance can be forged, with an instance of Ethereum running on a Ripple ledger. This would makes sense, it is fast with settlement finality, and Ripple IOUs are predestined for real world smart contracts....
