EGLD - low fees, fast transactions, relatively low cap, scarcity

Mentions:#EGLD

Awesome reply! Maybe read deeper into the EGLD & UTRUST acquisition if you have the time. 👍

Mentions:#EGLD

I personally don't think sharding is needed for a payment only blockchain. But if you do, EGLD is a pretty good candidate. To be honest, I don't think any crypto is really that great for payments, since frankly no teams truly really care about that use case. The modern world has so many ways to send money domestically in a low fee and fast way. Payment based blockchains are only really needed in countries with corrupted currency or when you need to do a lot of international payments for a low fee, but there are a lot of new services outside of blockchain that are trying to solve this issue. I think the best use case for a payment based blockchain in the developed and modern world is privacy ones. That is where you actually see the most adoption when we talk about crypto for payments, since privacy based blockchains solve a real issue. Think of dark web and Monero. There's also instances where even the Federal government uses Monero for their black ops dealings. But Monero is far from perfect! Stick with EGLD, but their value proposition comes from having a scalable smart contract platform. I personally don't think smart contracts are the future, I'm more of a fan of application based blockchains. But as of right now, I don't think there's a good payment based crypto yet.

Mentions:#EGLD

ETH and BTC for a start is really a good buy but for such amount, I would rather take on good low cap with promising prospects like AXL, and a few alt like BNB and EGLD.

From my understanding, the way the algorithmic stable coin worked was right there on the white paper for ***everyone*** to see. He didn't mislead anyone. He didn't ask you to invest in it. With a gun to your head. People FOMO on projects when they see big, green dildos. Guess what, there's a chance that a huge dump is going to happen. Or possibly even going to 0. I bought EGLD at an average price of $490. You don't see me posting about going to kill the developers, do you? I made a fucking mistake, I learnt from it and I won't ever FOMO into something ever again.

EGLD and Algo waaaaay to cheap right now I will ape into them

Mentions:#EGLD

Thanks for the advice mate. I finally had the chance to buy some DEIP because of their listing on mexc. And some EGLD, SOL DOT and DRIP. This are the days where we buy and wait for the moon

Liquidated majority of your Alts? I can’t do that man. I was even thinking of adding DVDX because they’re building a zero slippage Dex and some more EGLD. We shall see the end

Mentions:#DVDX#EGLD

Well am glad I got the extra cash to buy some of my favorite gems at a cheaper price. Also had to get some ALBT because they’re building the future of the financial market. Then SOL and EGLD too

I know a handful of people that use crypto for payment though. Maybe it is expensive in your country due to taxes and all that, don't know. I have a friend who uses a platform to pay with EGLD since it is very cheap in gas fees. Some other times he uses USDC when he wants to use a stable coin.

Finally my card unlocked and I bought some fucking dips 2 chunks of atom for 11.69 eur 1 chunk of xtz for 1.91 eur 1 chunk of AVAX at 36.06 eur still have to buy 2 chunks of FTM but I can't access binance from my current location, let's see how low it will go, if it reaches 0,38 eur I'll buy 3 chunks. LINK is approaching my first bear market tier of 6.99 eur... ALGO is still far from it, 1st bear market tier set at 0.30 eur. ADA hit my first bear market tier of 0.65 euro yesterday, next tier is at 0.32 ADA (-50%) per euro (4 chunks) EGLD is holding great, my next tier is 95. SOL is in re-entry mode since the first network crash (swapped all my stack into eth back then), nex tier is set at 55 euro (2 chunks) and finally polkadot, near my next tier of 9.99 euro. ​ Let's see where my bottom scraping strategy will bring me... probably to the magma... for at least a year.

I value projects based on the solutions they bring to the crypto space, community, ecosystem and their competitors. These logic has helped me with some of the gems I hodl like DVDX, EGLD and AXS.

I'm still buying some dips, they're some cryptos I've been hoping to get this kind of opportunity to accumulate and now it's here, so no way I'm sleeping on it. EGLD and XPRESS are the two main ones

Mentions:#EGLD#XPRESS

Hmm, let me see, could the one coin I sold yesterday fearing a bigger crash (EGLD) be the only thing in my portfolio that is green? Why of course, of course it is. This is fine 🙂

Mentions:#EGLD

That’s exactly what I am doing picking up a couple of projects who are still building products despite the dip, focused of EGLD, DEIP and LUNA.

I'll admit to having 15% in ADA and 5% into VGX and 1% scattered across ONE/Theta/EGLD. But, yes, BTC/ETH is how its done.

ONE is the only obvious one out of those. If anything ATOM triple topped and FTM quadruple topped. NEAR double topped too, but SOL didn't have a double top, how would you call that one? ADA had a single top, so did EGLD and AVAX. Other alts barely had any clear tops. It's easy in hindsight, but the double top trope can be quite misleading, causing you either to sell early (SOL's first top in September) or never sell (NEAR smashed through $20 the first time, didn't touch it the second). Saying alts are overpriced and due for a downtrend is one thing, and you would be right. But don't say double tops are easily identifiable or you can easily sell them for a profit.

Plan was to get familiar with good potential crypto projects. And it has not been disappointing. Was able to bag some NEAR at a pretty early stage, got to know about DOT EGLD and low caps like DVDX and DRIP.

Guilty as charged: bought EGLD at an average price of €480. Worth €120 today! Sweet -75% "gains"! Still holding the bag.

Mentions:#EGLD

Best shot now it to DCA. Gonna ave you a lot as well because the market will eventually come back. Don’t know when but I know that when it does, we’ll be smiling again. Been doing that for BTC since the beginning of the year and EGLD too. Am thinking I might add DEIP since they just got listed on mexc exchange but let’s see how that goes. HOLD 📍

Nice. Got my DVDX bag staked on Unifarm, BBANK staked on their app, ORE and REEF as well. And of course, EGLD. I can finally actually keep my profits rather than pay 80% tax lol

EGLD and LTC and that kinda thing really. All depends on how Lightening Network gets on, whether BTC evolves with smart contracts or remains a flat track bully, whether its implicit trust is ever broken etc.

I think the current maximum number of nodes is something like 3200. Some people would probably prefer no limit. I think it's decentralized enough. Also some kind of queue system for new nodes if I am not mistaken. And if many nodes unstake, as far as I understand if the number of nodes is too low and a node try to unstake it would be rejected. As in unable to unstake the staked 2500 EGLD.

Maybe. Not trying to. I don'¨t even have much EGLD. Far from my biggest bag. But technically it seems like a good means of paymemt that could scale globally. Not sure why it isn't more popular, but I would like to know.

>BTC and ETH, but if I was to dive into an alt, DOT looks juicy. Low price, and has a good amount of development still going on. I'm loading up on some EGLD, NEAR and tiny bit of Algorand

So you saw the last time they fucked about with stuff then? On 04 March 2022, CDC slashed rates for anyone holding more than 30k USD by 50% and also slashed the staking rate for LUNA, EGLD, ATOM, ETH, BTC, stablecoins, DOT and MATIC. I think my TGBP staking went from 12% PA to 6% PA - I wasn't staking the others.

Here are 6 I’d bet on not disappearing before 2030: BTC, ETH, LINK, DCR, DOT, EGLD..

I also use binance mainly because it’s home to some of the most promising low caps like DVDX and UBXT. EGLD is also great because of its speed. It can perform over 70k TPS

Elrond (EGLD) is a super usable chain with a very nice wallet (Maiar on the app store). If you're the least bit tempted by NFTs it would be a great chain to learn on. Algorand is pretty similar to Elrond. Also a great option. I think they'll both survive a bear market.

Reading the comments. Looks like Elrond (EGLD) will be accepted. What’s the consensus in this community on Elrond?

Mentions:#EGLD

With synthetic pairs there is always a bull market somewhere. Like $100 long EGLD/USDT and $100 short MANA/USDT to get a long EGLD/MANA. But risky with those shorts because they can rise more than 100 %.

Or better still, something with long term value. It’s hard to miss it when you have that much time. I’ve bought in ALBT and EGLD as long term shots say 5 years

Almost all of them have dropped in value. For me, the highest decline is in EGLD, OIN, FTM, and JUNO, and right now I'm looking at the long term. I believe they will bounce back.

There's that. For Elrond you only need one EGLD.

ZIL, EGLD and QKC have already been doing this for more than a year, so it’s not such a convincing hypothesis.

#Polygon Pro-Arguments Below is an argument written by Maleficent_Plankton which won 1st place in the Polygon Pro-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > **Background - Polygon is many-sided**. There's the main Polygon PoS network that acts as a sidechain to Ethereum, and then there are so many side projects, many of which deal with Layer 2: > > - MATIC: The main Polygon token, which is present on multiple networks > - Polygon PoS: The main Ethereum side-chain network that most are familiar with. It saves checkpoint state on the Ethereum network every [256 blocks (5 minutes)](https://research.binance.com/en/projects/matic-network). > - Polygon [Hermez](https://docs.hermez.io/#start-here-for-hermez-10-documentation): ZK-rollup Ethereum Layer 2 > - Polygon [Zero](https://blog.polygon.technology/introducing-plonky2/): A fast ZK-stark/ZK-snark hybrid solution built on the Plonky2 protocol. It proofs are theoretically [100x faster than current ZK proof calculations](https://blog.polygon.technology/zkverse-polygons-zero-knowledge-strategy-explained/). > - Polygon [Miden](https://blog.polygon.technology/polygon-announces-polygon-miden-a-stark-based-ethereum-compatible-rollup/): Stark-based ZK-rollup Ethereum layer 2 > - Polygon [Nightfall](https://blog.polygon.technology/zk-proofs-protocol-polygon-nightfall-launches-on-testnet-to-provide-low-cost-private-ethereum-transaction/): Enterprise version of Polygon that uses "ZK-Optimistic Rollups" (ZK proof for privacy and optimistic-rollup for scalability) > - Polygon Avail: Standalone network or side-chain solution > - Polygon Plasma Bridge: A legacy bridge that shouldn't be used anymore. > > This post will mainly focus on the Polygon PoS network. > > ------------------ > > **PROs** > > **Much faster and cheaper to use than Layer 1 Ethereum** > > The main benefit of using the Polygon PoS network is that it's an Ethereum side chain that provides faster and cheapers transactions for Ethereum tokens. It can process 1K-10K TPS with a [2-second average block time](https://polygonscan.com/chart/blocktime), which also has deterministic finality. The base fee is only 30 Gwei, and the total transaction fees hovers between [$0.1 to $0.5 USD](https://polygonscan.com/chart/transactionfee) (~4M transactions, ~30k total MATIC fees per day). > > This is also much cheaper than [optimistic rollups](https://l2fees.info/). > > **Largest Layer 2 network adoption** > > Among all the Layer 2 Ethereum solutions, Polygon PoS is completely ahead of every other competitor in terms total locked value with a [$4.8B USD market cap](https://defillama.com/chain/Polygon) (Jan 2021), compared to [$5.4 USD **Combined** Total Locked Value (TLV)](https://l2beat.com/) for the next 10 largest Layer 2 rollup solutions. Note that this does not include the $12B market cap of the MATIC token since that's a coin/token on multiple networks. DeFi support for Polygon is massive. > > One of the main issues with Layer 2 is that most are currently walled gardens with lackluster CEX/CeFi support for on/offramps. After all, the main benefit of lower fees on Layer 2 is lost if you can't on/offramp directly. Polygon is also ahead of competition here with support from Crypto_dot_com, Nexo, Binance (international), and Kucoin. Celsius Network will also have support mid-February. > > Polygon PoS is the only other large network besides Ethereum currently [https://support.opensea.io/hc/en-us/articles/4404027708051-Which-blockchains-does-OpenSea-support-](supported on OpenSea). > > **Weak competition** > > There are so many Ethereum Layer 2 competitors, but nearly all of them are rollups. Polygon PoS works differently in that it's a separate network where the state of the network is stored on Ethereum every 256 blocks. Thus, it doesn't directly compete with them. > > In addition, it also doesn't compete directly with Ethereum killers (ALGO, SOL, ETH, ADA, EGLD, etc.) in that it's designed as a side chain specifically for Ethereum. It shares popularity and as Ethereum grows. > > **Shares Ethereum developer tools** > > Polygon and Ethereum share similar EVM development tools (including Solidity and Vyper), so it's easy for Ethereum's large number of devs to develop for Polygon. > > Many Layer 2 rollups have yet to roll out EVM support while Polygon PoS is already battle-tested. > > **Abundance of research** > > For better or worse, Polygon is working on multiple Layer 2 solutions and constantly researching different protocols. Polygon Zero in particular provides [extremely-fast ZK proofs](https://blog.polygon.technology/zkverse-polygons-zero-knowledge-strategy-explained/), and its technology might become the future leader for ZK rollups. > > ------------------ > > Disclaimer: I currently do not own any MATIC. ***** Would you like to learn more?

I staked for the CRO Jade card at $.06. That’s definitely something I wish I had put more money into at the time. I would also stop myself from selling a few thousand EGLD at $7. That one makes me lose sleep at night still.

Bro you clearly didnt do your research Algorand and eth2 don't solve the trilemma To solve the trilemma you need - theoretically limitless linear scalability and henceforth endless TPS - Good security - Decentralization Elrond solves that. Elrond can do 5.4k TPS per shard and there are currently 3 shards but there can be endless shards. It has audited and good security through secure proof of stake And in terms of decentralization: it currently has one validator pool with 25% of the network. That is the legacy delegation where people can delegate their EGLD directly to the elrond team. But in the coming weeks, legacy staking will vanish completely and so will the validator pool. When that happens elrond will be more decentralized than Bitcoin. The biggest validator has only 8% of all delegated egld while the 6 biggest btc mining pool all have more than 10% of the total hashpower

> Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Elrond (EGLD), USDC, Tether or Dash Is it just me, or is this a weird selection?
