>Polkadot is less likely to be classified as security by SEC Because Gavin says so? The de-facto CEO of Polkadot saying it's not a security? Oxymoron much? There's no way, in a million years, that DOT is not a security and ETH is. No. Way.

Mentions:#DOT#ETH

The dilusion is high in this thread. How can you compare interest on a Pow coin like Bitcoin with interest on stakeable coins like Polkadot? DOTs are being generated out of thin air to those who stake their coins. The expected staking rewards for DOT can even be [looked up](https://miro.medium.com/v2/resize:fit:1100/format:webp/1*5VfUPC7kTEOAgtyKZEOl_A.png) online. They are predefined. And yes, this also applies to ETH now, running a validator uses up around 1Kw in electricity.... Per year! And the amount of staking reward simply depends on the total number of stakers. Plus fee income. Pow coins like Bitcoins have to be discovered investing tens of thousands of Dollars in electricity. The CEX can't just create the necessary Bitcoins out if thin air for you by running a node and lock up some Bitcoins in it.

The SEC is the only group looking to declare cryptos a security. Odds are, they will declare almost if not *all* of them securities. The only ones they've ever indicated they *wont* call a security (*indicate* mind you, considering they can 180 on a dime or lie through their teeth) are BTC and ETH. So, I have no idea where you're getting the idea that DOT is safer than ETH...

I wouldn't say things are exactly the same. There is nothing you can do on DOT's main chain, but create new blockchains. It truly is software with the purpose of creating blockchains. You can do whatever you want with Ethereum's layer 1. Not that I think Ethereum is a security either. Far from it.

#Polkadot Con-Arguments Below is an argument written by Shippior which won 3rd place in the Polkadot Con-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > Polkadot, while an interesting blockchain and often shilled as the one blockchain to rule them all, is far from ideal. A minor side note is the name of the blockchain which often leads to a small chuckle the first time that the name is heard. Rumor has it that the Web3 foundation has already hired a marketing firm to rebrand the Blockchain to a more mature entity. > > Polkadot focuses mostly on institutional parties instead of retail investors, thereby foregoing a very large group that has significant funds available to invest. The environment that has been developed by the Web3 foundation itself, the Polkadot.js wallet is clunky in its use to say the least. It isn't as flashy and easy to use as many other wallets on the market and it has withheld many investors from using it. Next to that the minimal amount of DOT to be able to stake is currently 120 (~$3500). It has fluctuated between 0 and 220 in the past which made retail investors a target to be dropped as nominator and thereby losing their staking rewards while they need to wait 28 days to unbond their DOTs that have been staked. > > These three facts (clunky wallet, large unbonding time, large minimum staking stack) lead a lot of retail investors to keep their DOT on the exchange where they receive a smaller staking fee than is received by the exchange, effectively increasing the wealth of the big players. > > All in all DOT is not the most easy to invest in crypto for retail investors and therefore will not become one of the key players in the cryptoverse. ***** Would you like to learn more?

BTC and ETH are my main ones then it’s ADA and DOT. I’m also putting small amounts into ATOM, LINK and CKB

I'm over-diversified, but I actually believe in all the projects I'm holding, plus they serve different purposes and are part of different narratives: Matic: Strong partnerships, has large DeFi landscape and established project overall. Near: Very easy to code it for someone who knows javascript= more dev adoption = more projects and faster development , plus very low fees and fast transactions Azero: It's a new L1 that I believe is gonna do good, makes use of DAG technology and has an innovative blockchain structure. Metis: Apart from being led by vitalik's mom (big brain). Jk, it's a L2 with an ecosystem that is growing fast, and has same advantages as matic , OP ,etc ATOM & DOT: They are both interpropability-focused projects competing with each other. Hard to tell who's gonna win so betting on both sides is safer. LDO : ethreum staking service, I think it's an important part of the ethreum ecosystem, and has a strong use case, so keeping it longterm. Might add Rocketpool as well. Kda: Very secure L1 coin, I'm considering dumping it so nothing else to say.

Polkadot has some amazing parachains that weren't around during 2021 bullrun(s). It'll be interesting to see the impact of the likes of GLMR, AZERO, TRAC, TAO etc have in tne next time, even just the building up of positive sentiment in Polkadot more generally could help whip up demand in DOT. Definitely see it as a player, but also agree with others that MATIC is very well placed too.

>BFT is old tech And? Tendermint, tinderbake etc are much newer and work much better than ouroboros. >the base case for cardano was to match bitcoins level of security and evolve it Cardano is much lower security and much more centralized than BTC, and there's nothing it does that couldn't be done better on a BTC L2. >cardano transactions take around 20 seconds, if you want instant finality you can use layer 2, base layer is all about security Stop trying to be tricky. Finality on Cardano is 5 min. That's a direct result of using nakamoto concensus. Cardano doesn't have any L2s. The security on L1 Cardano is lower than the 33% threshold for DOT. So it's not even debatable. No side chain will ever be able to settle with L1 faster than 5 min without risking security. There's no reason to use L1 Cardano, and Charles knows that nobody ever will. Cardano doesn't even have basic governance. He could implement that any day he wanted to. The code is no doubt already written, but Charles isn't ready to involve the community in the closed door decision making. >if you can stop the network with 33% stake, then guess what, you control the network.. No, you can't... because your stake would be slashed. That's the whole point. Keep pretending not to understand and act like most chains have slashing for more reason. Charles could use his BFT keys to blacklist nodes. You don't even need stake to attack Cardano right now. You're free to stop lying.

Mentions:#BTC#DOT

It can. You have options to stake on centralised exchanges, wich is okay if you have smaller amounts, but if so, you support centralisation. If you have larger amounts you can solo stake via Ledger Live or Trezor cold wallet, or via nomination pools (Talisman for example). Solo staking requires you to know some stuff about how the network runs, and be active in staking (not like set and forget), it's not recomended for novice users. Current minimum amount for solo staking is aprox 264 DOT. Rewards are on daily basis since an Epoch is 24 hours on Polkadot network. The important thing is that you have 28 cool down period when you want to unstake your bonded funds. So you have to wait that period of time to be able to manage your DOT (transfer to exchange or another wallet etc). You can get more info on polkadot or dot subreddit on sticky threads. Good luck.

>you actually need to compromise around 73 pool groups to control more than 51% of stake That page shows just over 20 pool operators (not counting hypothetical SPOs) control 51% of Cardano. Please explain how you are counting 73. >all other PoS, including polkadot, you can't use the threshold of 51% since it isn't nakamoto consensus but BFT This is true, ever since Tezos abandoned the old ouroboros consensus last year, all of the modern chains are BFT. The reason for this is Nakamoto consensus is too slow to scale a blockchain. This is why Cardano and BTC, nor any side chain trying to access their data, cannot finalize any tx in less than five minutes. >so for those protocols you only need to control 33% of stake to control the network This is BTC maxi myth. These chains have slashing that prevents 33% attacks from happening. A 33% attack could never control the network. Theoretically it could only stop the network from writing new blocks. But that has never once happened on even the smallest BFT chain, because the attacker would have their stake slashed before it happened, or immediately after, when all of the other validators fork. An attacker cannot control the network like a 51% attack until they have 66% in BFT. Nakamoto concensus is the oldest tech, and every POS chain that used it except Cardano has since upgraded. Except for Cardano, because Charles who made a career claiming it was the best and can't change it without admitting it is not. Who do you think is right, Charles Hoskinson or the developers of every other L1 blockchain in the world? >as for the BFT keys i was right 😭 >the only hurdle left in cardanos quest to decentralisation Lmao >i am sure there is some obscure network out there that has more block producers I wouldn't call DOT, AVAX, TEZOS or XMR obscure. Each of them are used to process multiple times more data than Cardano. >thats the beauty of cardano, you can run a node for peanuts, >we wouldn't know if they are all ran by the same entity or not Yet many chains have more decentralized block production. 🤔 It's almost like Charles' ideas look good on paper, but don't work for some reason. Coinbase only runs 1 validator on most networks. They run over twenty on Cardano. And all of them were counted as SPOs until someone noticed they were all created around the same time, with the same parameters and unofficially linked them to CB. Which is it? The cheaper your validators are, the more likely someone is to run more than one. And Cardano is the only chain that pays whales extra if they run multiple pools and pretend they are all different. Cardano is not designed to be decentralized, it was carefully designed to game the metrics on paper. No other chain uses trusted closed source wallets and apps. Cardano has a much stronger culture of centralization than BSC.

Bright future ahead for DOT and it’s eco system !

At the time of writing, [DOT only allows 297 validators.](https://polkadot.js.org/apps/#/staking) This is obviously bad for decentralization because not everyone has the ability to propose blocks. > > Polkadot currently has 13 "council" members.

Often it is named in the list of 3rd generation blockchains like ADA, DOT, ALGO, etc. As one can already see it has a lot of competition. As of yet it has to endure at least ADA, DOT and AVAX being above in market cap. Even Cronos (CRO) which is based on the Cosmos SDK has a higher market cap than ATOM itself. This proves that so far ATOM hasnt been really popular with the people and it is resembled by the lack of marketing for the chain. > > To be able to get a better comparison between ATOM and it's competitors first it should be explained better what the vision and role of Cosmos is. Cosmos Hub acts as a security relayer for the Cosmos cryptoverse. There are no smart contracts on the Cosmos chain itself and there is limited governance available. It's main reason is to secure the IBC (inter blockchain connection) network which allows all chains within the Cosmos network to easily communicate with each other. > > Currently there is a debate happening, backed up by a governance proposal, to allow the use of smart contract (implement CosmWasm which is the smart contract enabler on Cosmos network). However this has been met with fierce arguments between pro and con groups, the con group being led by [Jae Kwon](https://twitter.com/jaekwon) one of the main developers of Cosmos who treathens to make his own chain. All in all this discussion might be beneficial going forward but it does deliver a lot of FUD to the community (there is a lot of FUD currently in the Cosmos network, but that is a whole different story). > > Due to the current position of Cosmos Hub, only ensuring security, the discussion has come up in the community what the use is of the ATOM coin.

#Cosmos Pro-Arguments Below is an argument written by Shippior which won 1st place in the Cosmos Pro-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > [Cosmos](https://cosmos.network/) ([ATOM](https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/cosmos-hub)) is a dPoS blockchain. Often it is named in the list of 3rd generation blockchains like ADA, DOT, ALGO, etc. As one can already see it has a lot of competition. To be able to get a better view of ATOM it is to not describe what it is in itself but how it compares to its competitors. > > ATOM compares best to DOT with regards of above list. Just as with DOT the sole purpose of ATOM is to provide security for the network around it. Contrary to DOT, that leases parachains to other networks as a payment for using the security of DOT, the IBC (Inter Blockchain Connection) is free to use for every network that whishes to do so. This has led to a higher capacity of shitcoins on Cosmos compared to Polkadot but it has also ensured that the development of many chains has been faster than it has been on Polkadot. > > Compared to ADA the Cosmos network has a lot more flexibility. The eUXTO model of ADA still provides many limitations in DeFi, which ATOM does not have. It has multiple DEXes ([Osmosis](https://osmosis.zone/), [Crescent](https://app.crescent.network/swap) and [Sifchain](https://www.sifchain.finance/) are just a couple of examples) and currently there are multiple parties working on bringing EVM to the Cosmos, with [Evmos](https://twitter.com/evmosorg) being the most anticipated product which has launched last week. > > The biggest advantage of investing in Cosmos at this very moment is airdrops. The set way to introduce new networks to the network is to airdrop coins of a new network to holders of several networks. This way it is ensured that you are able to participate in a new network, free of cost, or just sell off the airdrop in a network you are not interested in for a small profit (free money = free money). For newcomers: Airdrops are only available when one stakes a minimum amount (normally 5 ATOM) in a non-custodial wallet. E.g. the ATOM should be taken of a central exchange like Binance and be staked through a wallet like [Keplr](https://www.keplr.app/) which fortunately is really easy to use. ***** Would you like to learn more?

DOT been waiting for that to move a long time.

You don’t decide, you just buy BTC and ETH and/or another one or two other top alts, DOT; ADA etc. If you wanna buy shitcoins make sure to buy things that are used, like SFUND (Seedify.fund) a gaming funding platform DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization), all the major upcoming crypto games start in there their ICOs, so if you hold SFUND you can have allocations to these ICOs, floor price always makes at least 2x, but normally it makes 10x… so buying SFUND is massively better than any other shit/meme coin. SFUND was just and example, like, don’t go around buying ElonMuskCumMoonLandingUpYourA$$

#Cosmos Con-Arguments Below is an argument written by Shippior which won 1st place in the Cosmos Con-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > [Cosmos](https://cosmos.network/) ([ATOM](https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/cosmos-hub)) is a dPoS blockchain. Often it is named in the list of 3rd generation blockchains like ADA, DOT, ALGO, etc. As one can already see it has a lot of competition. As of yet it has to endure at least ADA, DOT and AVAX being above in market cap. Even Cronos (CRO) which is based on the Cosmos SDK has a higher market cap than ATOM itself. This proves that so far ATOM hasnt been really popular with the people and it is resembled by the lack of marketing for the chain. > > To be able to get a better comparison between ATOM and it's competitors first it should be explained better what the vision and role of Cosmos is. Cosmos Hub acts as a security relayer for the Cosmos cryptoverse. There are no smart contracts on the Cosmos chain itself and there is limited governance available. It's main reason is to secure the IBC (inter blockchain connection) network which allows all chains within the Cosmos network to easily communicate with each other. > > Currently there is a debate happening, backed up by a governance proposal, to allow the use of smart contract (implement CosmWasm which is the smart contract enabler on Cosmos network). However this has been met with fierce arguments between pro and con groups, the con group being led by [Jae Kwon](https://twitter.com/jaekwon) one of the main developers of Cosmos who treathens to make his own chain. All in all this discussion might be beneficial going forward but it does deliver a lot of FUD to the community (there is a lot of FUD currently in the Cosmos network, but that is a whole different story). > > Due to the current position of Cosmos Hub, only ensuring security, the discussion has come up in the community what the use is of the ATOM coin. It provides no incentive but a low APR for staking, the lock-up period of 21 days is significantly longer than for many of its competitors, and there are a lot of coins in the Cosmos network available that are more usefull for using in DeFi.

Yep. Thats why DOT is my biggest bag.

For me Polkadot (DOT) ticks all these boxes.

Hello DOT pump. Beautiful.

Mentions:#DOT

Yeah sure in a perfect world Alts will 20x. We have been in a bear market for over a year. Many Alts will never recover to their ATH and will fade into obscurity as the next popular thing comes along to replace it. It’s about relative safety and risk vs reward. There’s no guarantee once popular Alts like DOT and LRC will ever pump as they did before. 99% of crypto is BS. BTC is tried and true. Eth is promising but also debatable. Low cap coins are gambling. If you want to gamble, go for it. Not everyone wants to expose themselves to that kind of risk. Personally I am mostly in on BTC (60%+), some Eth and about 15% lower cap Alts. This spread is acceptable risk to me. Yours may be higher.

This is fun and all but my DOT average is still $22 sooo yeahhhhh

Mentions:#DOT

Well, if anyone doesn't see that we are bullish, I guess it's on them. I'm not in any way implying that we'll hit ATHs this year, but we should at least be on our way. The good part, however, is that alts are also making their run, DOT for instance. Hoping LINK and DIA catch up as I know what they can both do in the long term. I guess we just have to chill to see what happens.

Mentions:#DOT#LINK#DIA

Haha, likewise. Although managed to get 80 DOT between $4.90-$6.55 over the past year so can't complain too much

Mentions:#DOT

that was DOT

Mentions:#DOT

You cannot, but even if you could, New staking pools are so easy to use, and you get a much higher return. Why risk your DOT?

Same here DOT waiting for payday to buy more
