    Iota seems really nice.
    It does not require downloading the entire block chain to verify a transaction. Also it is faster and can handle more transactions per second.

    Exactly. You can store the rights to an image on a blockchain so that only the private key holder can say they own it. But that doesn't stop anyone from duplicating or altering an image and redistributing it, nor does it prove that the first person to claim ownership of that image on the blockchain is the original owner either. So it won't do anything to stop copyright infringement, it could maybe be a help in court when there are disputes, but it seems to me that it could also be used to irrevocably steal the rights to an image that someone doesn't own. How this translates into value for a crypto token is anyone's guess.

    The most interesting altcoin will be the one that might replace BTC if BTC can not scale in the long term. And honestly: nobody knows whether BTC scaling is possible or not.

    If BTC can not scale, then the logical conclusion will be that blockchains can not scale, so something from DAG might be the future. However DAG are in crisis: Byteball has no volume, Iota has not normal=safe wallet and it is still centralized with coordinator (which should be shut down in 1yr+) and RAI/Nano recently ****** up completely.

    It is obvious that there is no real world use of any coin except BTC atm that can justify the 0.5T valuation of coins. However we live in a weird world and at weird times. 8T market cap with gold has no justification. Real estate market makes no sense as well. Raising prices of companies that have extreme P/E ratios have no common sense too.

    All altcoins have a value as a casino. If you have altcoins, you are having shares in the 0.5T rising gambling market, that is it. And most players have yet to come.

    That said the (Iota) data marketplace https://blog.iota.org/iota-data-mark...e-cb6be463ac7f is something that must have some use in future. I am not saying Iota will be used. But data marketplace will be a huge thing and at least to me makes sense if it has to be decentralized. Still it is just a concept like ETH.

    We are all bloodsucking ticks, hungry, devious
    each one latched on to the ass of the previous
    when the last and the first latch on it can be shown
    ass-blood sucked by the first from the last is his own

    I would go for full speed to ETH, dirt cheap now (about 277 USD) compared to the possibilities.

    I am hearing everyone talking about TRX, their collaboration with Bittorrent, so maybe it's one of the best

    I prefer Ripple and ETH - I think they're the most stable.
    On the whole the market is so wide now that you can lost yourself in it.
    Just check the news and be up-to-date with it.
