I am wondering whether ETH is going through a similar episode of frenzy as Bitcoin in 2013, rising as high as 450 $ this summer (?). It seems quite unstoppable at the moment.

The fact that Andreas Antonopoulos cared to write the book titled "Mastering Ethereum" is an indication of the potential he attributes to this concept. It also suggests that he is preparing the ground for the moment when Ethereum might overtake Bitcoin and become the largest cryptocurrency - something he seemed to dismiss as unlikely not too long ago. At any rate, to me as a layman and speculator, I view this as a convifmation that I am probably invested in an asset and concept that, barring disasters, will continue to evolve and hold value in the foreseeable future.

MLN will democratize hedge fund management and has a solid team. Also, there are only about 1000 Ethereum addresses holding the token (not including on-exchange holders) so it's still very early on. Price just took a beating so it may be a good time to get in. 

HMQ is doing amazing things with biometrics as a means to authenticate access to your wallet removing the traditional barriers related to verifying accounts, managing keys, etc. I think of it as a universal UI for blockchain. Their goal is to offer banking services to the unbanked using this tech. They're partnered with Deloitte and SAP LatAm posted a nice write-up on them. Logo is pretty awful but the market cap is under $30M.  

*disclaimers*

- This is not investment advise

- Never invest more than you can afford to lose

- I see these as long term plays. Who knows what happens in the short term.

where can i buy Verge, MLN, and HMQ? :-) on what exchange/gateway?

A good way to find the market for any coin is to go to coinmarketcap.com and click the link at the top where it says "4130 Markets" (https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/volume/24-hour/). This page will show you the top markets for each crypto currency. Looks like Bittrex.com is a good exchange for all three. 

If you are new to the space be sure to enable (and learn how to use) two-factor authentication (2FA) for any exchange you hold funds at. Funds in an exchange are vulnerable to hacking, particularly if you don't use 2FA. As you get more comfortable I highly recommend storing funds off of an exchange in a cold wallet. You can google "how to 2FA" and "cold wallet" to find out more about each.

Anyone invested in Tether - USDT? Seems there is some growth potential there. Also ranked 4th at current volume rankings @ coinmarketcap

Tether is a pegged currency like steem dollars and bitusd, meaning the coins are designed to have a fixed price that doesn't move much if any from the the currency prices they are targeting. The prices are fixed because it offers the coins unique utility, not because you can make money holding them, waiting for them to go up in value.

My main holdings are ripple, lbry, siacoin, and stellar in descending order of current value of holdings of each 'coin'. 

Mid-level holdings are ethereum, Bitcoin with Bitcoin transitioning to main holdings by the end of next month as a potential fork is forthcoming.

Too many coins of interest to post here that I have yet to acquire.

So you expect an increase in price of BTC upon the fork? Judging on the transition to a main holding...

No, not initially, in fact I would expect the opposite, that BTC value goes down, but having an expectation of coin doubling if the user generated soft fork is implemented is not unreasonable given the right circumstances.
