I'm looking for Bitcoin to lose ground to the contenders when this collapse ends and the market advance resumes.

I think the scalability problems of BitCoin are major (and a big problem unless a solution is developed) and the crypto market will be picking new horses for the next bull run.

Not exactly sure who (??) those strong horses will be in the next crypto bull run but I'm watching the field.

Anyone feel free to chime in with ideas.

Most ICO are being issued as a utility. Therefore it appears the security law would not be applicable.

The "utility" argument is a $500/hr feast for legal eagles and it's paid for by people who buy these "utility coins" with Dollars / Euros / whatever while those who create these critters are laughing all the way to the bank.

It's just a guess, but I think Bitcoin has enough support as the King of Crypto that the current issues (scalability, fees, etc.) will over time be fixed by the Bitcoin core developers. The more Bitcoin's role as King suffers due to these issues, the stronger the demand will be on the developers to fix the issues, and Bitcoin will eventually right itself and carry on as it always was and always will be.

That's my bet.

It is indeed a valid argument that will make big money for lawyers.

We cannot say at this point in time if the blockchain/Crypto technology will be disruptive. It has the look of it, the timing is right and it make sense. We should find out in coming months or few years. If it is, you can be sure that not only the ICO's issuer will be laughing to the bank.

What do you like?
What do you own?


Rather than mention specifics, I'd rather state consistent themes I follow (some choices include more than one). Some of you can guess these but I will not comment so please don't ask.

1. New technologies (supplementing blockchain or completely new).
2. IoT (several different applications, especially supply chain).
3. East Asia (China, Korea, Japan, etc).
4. Picks and shovels (exchanges...ease-of-use and/or decentralized)

Diversify, do your own research (DYOR), read white papers, view YouTube reviews, read Reddit, Slack, Medium and Twitter. Initially I subscribed to a couple of paid services but have since dropped them. I can learn as much reading the free stuff mentioned above. There's a huge amount of info available and you can quickly sort out who's providing good info vs hype (beware of Pump & Dumpsters).

Be prepared for extreme volatility which is simply part of the game. The risks are high but so are the rewards. Just since Jan 1, my portfolio has gone up nearly 100%, down 50% and today +12%...just in 20 days! However +250% (3.5X) since I started 6 months ago (mid-July). If you can't stand this volatility even in a small portion of your portfolio, stick with CDs, bonds or ETFs. It is the Wild West again like the Internet Bubble in the 90s.

Don't do this! (There were PLENTY of warnings about BitConnect BCC).

I'm curious if you've ever looked at wagerr?

Subject 59927

It's a small cap crypto project which seems like it could be a home run if they can deliver what they've promised - decentralize person to person sports betting.

I like it because

- It has an easy to understand usage (sports betting. simple)
- It exists entirely inside the crypto world. It doesn't have to integrate with the real world (corporations, supply chains, banking, etc.). I like the lack of friction with the real world.
- It sounds fun. I think centralized sports betting services are huge in countries where they are legal (such as England). This sounds like the same thing, but lower commission and you will be able to bet from your PC or phone.

If Bitcoin and the blockchain makes sense as a person to person payment system, person to person sports betting probably makes equally important sense. Why not?

I would imagine the hardest part is getting the connection between the real world winner of the event (49ers beat the Eagles!) into the network via automation. What if the result is wrong in the transition from real world to the wagerr blockchain? Other than that, it seems pretty standard stuff for a blockchain app.

Anyways, there's a wagerr thread on SI if anybody is interested. Not much discussion because they don't have much news yet (still in pre-launch phase), but things should get rockin' fairly soon.
