More ETH alts will follow, which is what happened last time. Only this time there are a lot more that will die off before the next bull. It’s easy to say you’re ETH, but better. Shit projects get exposed in a bear market. EOS was talked up just like Luna, ONE, ALGO, SOL, ADA, etc last time.

“The first functioning implementation of a proof-of-stake cryptocurrency was Peercoin, introduced in 2012.[1] Other cryptocurrencies, such as Blackcoin, Nxt, Cardano, and Algorand followed.[1] However, as of 2017, PoS cryptocurrencies were still not as widely used as proof-of-work cryptocurrencies.[5] The biggest proof-of-stake blockchains by market capitalization in 2021 were Cardano, Avalanche, Polkadot and Solana. Other prominent PoS platforms include Tron, EOS, Algorand, and Tezos.[6][7][8][9]”

EOS didn't launch it's own mobile device. I think I kinda agree with OP here, as much as it pains me. Best not to underestimate the power of Solana. I think it's centralized as hell, but it's also super powerful... Seems to withstand lots of attacks because the amount of money big players have riding on it. Solana's been bailed out a few times by some huge players. In a way, that is a form of security...

Bro no. Solana is garbage tier. Go study EOS for some wisdom

Mentions:#EOS

To answer your question. The chain gets congested at 1.5tps. It doesn’t handle DeFi - DEXs are all closed source and rely on off-chain sequencers (Muesliswap is the exception but it’s a basic EtherDelta style order book rather than an AMM). For this reason TVL remains lower than EOS.

When cryptocurrency is surging there's a need for something that satisfies the requirement of "being crypto" that came down from senior management but otherwise isn't since your project would suffer greatly if it suddenly actually incorporated blockchain technology. In the previous cycle that position was taken by EOS, which was basically a database where other people could mess with your transactions (if you didn't know to set them to private). This cycle it was Solana.

DPoS was used by Dan Larimer with STEEM and later with EOS. With dPoS a limited amount of block producers need to be elected while anyone can run a block producer node on Cardano. Delegating is simply an additional feature for people owning not enough coins to reasonably run an own node though anyone can run a block producer node with any amount of coins. Cardano is PoS like Ethereum is maybe going to be one day while it provides an additional native delegating option that Ethereum will miss.

in very diverse ways: On Bitcoin it's solved by having a very restricted *standardness* structure of transactions that can propagate in the network, and then a relatively low sig_op limit. Verification is however much faster than recomputation. On XRP it's done by centralization, by using traditional heuristic and AI-based antispam measures specifically tailored for offenders -- Sybil attack is hard because of the minimum reserve limits. On EOS and Solana, it's hybrid: Central nodes and wallet providers will often simulate and reject failing transactions, but occasionally some of those will sift through and get in the blocks. On Solana in particular that seems to be one of the main sources of consensus instability. Finally, chains that use languages which aren't Turing complete and can use static analysis (e.g., Algorand, Tezos) seem to do that.

**It often takes 2 cycles to kill hypecoins.** After the 1st one, they linger as zombies for the second one as its bagholders still wait for a prophesized comeback and new ATH. Then they slowly slip into irrelevance and disappear for good as they slowly give up in silence. Hypecoins of the 2017 class in no particular order: XRP, XML, IOTA, ICX, NEO, DASH, NEM, EOS, LISK, OMG, WAVES, VET... Now that the 2nd bear is here, these will finally fall into obscurity, little by little, and most are now well beyond the top 60. I bet most of the 2021 class people have never even seen half of those ever mentioned in here. And believe me when I tell you each one of these shitcoins was once obnoxiously shilled in here for weeks or *months* on end. Now you're not gonna want to hear this, but the same fate awaits the hypecoins of 2021. They will be replaced by new ones in the next cycle, and its bagholders will finally give up as they FOMO during the bull or capitulate in the bear. 🐷

Yeah, there's lots of uncertainty surrounding markets right now. But eventually supply chains will catch up with demand and stabilize. Inflation will pull back as demand begins to falter. If you zoom out and take a longer term perspective, it's not all doom and gloom. Recent events are cyclical, as they always are. Does that mean the next 6-12 months aren't gonna suck? Nope. I've been a miner since 2017. I've generally just stuck to the larger coins like ETH and BTC. Most altcoins struggled hard in the bear market. Even the larger ones like EOS went down about -91% from its ATH. Now people don't even really talk about it. I have confidence in ETH and BTC and that's about it. Well I'm still up 10x on my ETH (average buy of $140). At the ATH I was up as high as 34x. Just hold. Transfer your crypto into a cold wallet. Ignore the news. And just hold.

I feel like if there is room for one meme coin to survive successive crypto cycles, then that coin is Doge. Doge is more a part of crypto history than most non-meme crypto projects. All subsequent dog-based meme coins will probably be relegated to history as part of the 2021 bubble along with ape NFTs. The incentive to invest in funny dog coins wont exist in the same way as when the government was paying people to stay home. Last cycle it was ICOs and “protocols” (e.g. crap like EOS). Obviously I don’t have a crystal ball and you are right that “you never know”.

> Number of developers working in an ecosystem does not automatically equal higher features or security. Not automatically, but it would be very strange if the two factors weren't correlated... the developers are the ones creating features and designing protocol upgrades. > Ethereum security is not good, August 2021 the chain was exploited and forked, **fortunately Ethereums centralization avoided complete disaster**. That is not a reasonable explanation of what happened... One of Ethereum's decentralization features is that it runs on multiple clients. There is not a single official program you should use to run a node, instead you can pick from a selection produced by different client teams. One of these clients is called GETH, a potential exploit in GETH was identified and the Go-Ethereum developer team published a new update that included a fix for this. Three days later an attacker began making use of the exploit, node operators who were running GETH and had not updated were vulnerable and this caused a chain split. People running GETH who had updated their clients were unaffected. People running one of the other clients: Nethermind, BESU or Erigon, were also unaffected. How would you interpret that as an example of Ethereum's centralization? > Ethereum is ripe to be replaced with something with better features, and lower cost. Alt L1s aren't competing with Ethereum anymore, they're competing with rollups. Why would anyone deploy something on Algorand, HarmonyOne or Cardano when they can deploy on Optimism or Arbitrum? In fact Arbitrum already has more dApps than all 3 of those Alt L1s combined? And if the dApps are built in the Ethereum ecosystem then that's where users will go to use them. Ethereum's roadmap is fully leaning into optimizing the L1 to help rollups to flourish. Two of the biggest upcoming upgrades (other than The Merge) are EIP-4488 and EIP-4844. The former will reduce the cost of calldata transaction costs and the later (proto-danksharding) will allow the storage of large amounts of rollup data on L1. Each of these should roughly reduce the cost of using a rollup by an order of magnitude, so once implemented a transaction on an L2 that currently costs $1 will cost more like $0.01. This is being done without compromising decentralization or security of the L1. Of course many Alt L1s have got upgrades of their own planned, but I just don't see anything like the kind of innovation coming down the pipe that would be needed to even maintain their position relative to Ethereum's ecosystem. Maybe I'm wrong on that, but my opinion matches the OP's sentiment and over the last couple of years I have invested accordingly. I do still hold a little bit of ADA, because it is interesting how different the approach of eUTXO is to just about everything else, it's plausible that there might be an as-yet-unforeseen benefit that it has which makes it better for some niche usecase? As for stuff like Avalanche, Solana, Harmony etc, I think they will go the same way as EOS, Aeternity and NEO from last cycle. E

I’ve just been around long enough to have seen this all before. Cardano is just following the EOS playbook. You don’t really think somebody is paying me to post on Reddit though do you? That would be wild.

How many downtrends have we had? Plenty already. How many times did people feel that it's over? Countless. Use this experience folks. Just don't be over positioned in relatively newer projects that could go, 'Pooff'.

Boring Tron, Boring EOS, boring Monero etc. You just know they won't go as 'Pooff' like Axie Infinity or Solana might. Just my opinion ofcourse. You might not 100x with these, but at least you might 2x or 3x. Still alright.

You can't solve that problem unless you start introducing trusted systems / centralised layers. Doing so defeats the point of using a decentralised system and opens itself up to abuse because now you need to trust the people in control to do the right thing. The EOS blockchain had that functionality, where transactions could be reversed by so called "arbitrators", and it absolutely got abused. https://cointelegraph.com/news/eos-reverses-previously-confirmed-transactions-as-pundits-decry-centralization

The problem with shitcoins is they are 99% controlled by the developers. No matter what ever they say, they are printing/burning. If you understand that, you understand why the liquidity will always be poor. They pay exchanges to list the coin and when they are ready they dump their coins for BTC or Eth. They can only pay so many exchanges and wash trade. People like Brock Pierce (EOS) and Just iNSun (Tron) are the master of pump and dump.

You’re right, Algo should be with EOS where it belongs lol

Well Im not saying it definitely wont, but its entirely possible that alt Layer 1s wont do well in the next bull run, or just that Juno specifically wont. There is no guarantee at all that a coin will come close to its ATH in a new bull run. Example I like to use is EOS, which had its ATH in the 2018 run, pumped to about 3/4 of its ATH in the May 2021 run, and barely pumped at all in November when tons of other newer projects were setting new ATH all over the place. And people on this sub loooved EOS. Now its just slowly fading into obscurity. That is the fate of 99% of alt layer 1s. My point is I hope you are diversified and Juno just represents a small amount of what you hold.

You missed Scamdano's 1 TPS and 5 year delay on smart contracts that turned out to be a bust. All 2017 eth killers like NEO, Tron, EOS all dead in the water.

I've literally funded my life on TRX and tokens on their network for 4 years. 888tron is a gambling site, but just hold the 888 tokens and collect dividends. Chainzarena is an F2P game that gives divs too. Hell, just holding TRX pays as it's proof of stake. It's been around for years, and despite all the Justin Sun hate it's not been dropped like EOS or other highly hyped coins from prior cycles.

Better go warn Solana or TerraLuna Fanboys or EOS (wait EOS is to late). I already warned in the Past EOS fanboys. And EOS failed, i already warned Solana Fanboys and Solana is failing. I think i know better which crypto is good to invest than you:) because i already saw real issues in Blockchains. And Cardano do not have major issues like most other Chains:) cardano is on a very good way:)

There’s almost no evidence to suggest this, it runs at about ~1 tps and has less DeFi usage than even EOS: http://defillama.com/chains There have already been a few hacks and exploits as devs struggle with Plutus and concurrency, due to minimal tooling and a small developer community. Almost everything is still closed source. It’s early, but give it 12-18 months and it might mature into a larger DeFi ecosystem - it hasn’t been tested yet. The problem is that it’s growing much slower than competitors, especially Arbitrum and Optimism, or Starknet which is picking up the lions share of developer mindshare.

>they have more cash and backing than ever before that can buy them more time EOS.

This reply should have way more upvotes. People dont realise most alts will die, including most alts that are currently considered 'blue chips'. Even a token like LINK which will survive for sure, wont get the same price action as the next hyped coins. Just look at XRP, LTC, BCH, NEO, EOS. I believe only Litecoin made a new ATH last bullrun. Dont hodl alts.

Algo and Solana remind me of EOS then. Just delusional bright eyed idiots

EOS is still #50 by MCAP. Pretty ridiculous tbh

At one time EOS was considered the top dog. IOTA and XLM too.

> Who created that rule? Dan Larimer who was the first to implement dPoS within STEEM and later EOS. > I would not call delegating a "feature" either. Keep poor people away from securing the network sounds totally reasonable..

Mentions:#STEEM#EOS

No it does not. DPoS is used by STEEM and EOS and within dPoS block producers have to be elected. Within Cardano to become a block producer you do not need to be elected. Anyone can run a node to produce blocks. The possibility to be selected by the system to produce a block depends on your amount of coins while there is no required minimum. Any user can choose on his own if he wants to run an own node or to delegate his coins. Within Ethereum there is a required minimum of 32 ETH to participate in staking. There is no natively implemented option to delegate while anyone with less than 32 ETH cannot participate in staking. So in both, Cardano and Ethereum you can become a block producers on your own while Ethereum requires a minimum amount and does not provide the option to alternatively delegate.

Basically 95% of them are in similar position. Will they recover eventually or not, time will tell. At this point I’m leaning towards lower low on a monthly timeframe for them (see EOS). Takeaway for me is to stay away 100x projects in their first bull run because they are in a multi year profit taking for insiders;).

That is extremely possible. But in crypto, all it takes is one slam-dunk. My BNB dust from 2017 is now one of my largest altcoin holdings. Used most of it to buy EOS in early 2018. 😭

Mentions:#BNB#EOS

This is true. The next part is where everything else starts into a bull market except all of trash you're holding. You sit there waiting with your bag of EOS, Nano, IOTA, etc waiting for those new ATH's but they never come and you're left out in the cold. Just replace EOS, Nano, Iota with the current flavour of favorites.

Not excited one bit for equilibrium tbh. I've backed 80% of the projects in the crowdloans so far but Equilibrium is not one of them. The team have been proven and caught out lying and cheating their retail investors and banning and blocking people from their telegram and discord for asking difficult but legitimate questions. I look at their history and arguably they're a failed EOS project hoping Polkadot gives them a platform to find users. Just to see if I was missing anything myself I watched the equilibrium + polkadex stream they did together. Alex seems to have no idea how to communicate an idea or sell a concept. Vivek from Polkadex showed him up, it was clear there was a huge gulf in class between the two. It's as though equilibrium knew they were going to struggle winning a slot quickly - so they slipped into auctions 12-13 which were a mess and caught all the other teams out. This ended with them winning a slot that they wouldn't have won in the normal auction a week after as the bids got much higher than equilibrium raised as a whole in slots 12-13. And according to the users, their kusama project Genshiro has been a nightmare. If you believe in them, awesome, and hope it works out for you my friend. But it's a big nope from me, I won't be using any of their products.
