ETH dapps ?

Sitting here on a bag of ETH and thinking about the future and one thought that struck me was: Is there even a functional DApp on the ethereum blockchain yet?

Are there any dapp demos
Is there a lightweight offline wallet that doesn't require me to download the whole blockchain
How many of the actual holders can program smart contracts?

I challenge you to name one legitimate application of a DAPP other than drug market and coin exchange.

it's a giant meme. The majority of dapps would work better with traditional centralized architecture.

Btc is money for the entire fucking world.

Eth is a platform to run meme applications.

The fact that anyone thinks that these things have remotely similar value is laughable. People buying eth don't even understand what they;'re buying, they just want to get into crypto and feel like btc is too expensive.

ETH is also money for the entire world. Money with cheaper and faster transactions. BTC is a store of value for people who are obsessed with limited supply

It is actually equally "dangerous" as the scripting language bitcoin uses. I can tell you've only heard the "larger attack surface" meme and have not actually ever researched it yourself.

RumChicken

Right. And how many times has btc had to fork due to an attacker running of with tens of millions worth?

Lunatick

Haha now I know you're full of shit. That was because of a bug in an application written on top of ethereum, not because of a problem with ethereum itself. This is the equivalent of calling the internet dangerous because a website got hacked.

Both BTC & ETH & crypto in general have a long way to go.

I don't see mass adoption by 2020 or while any of us are still alive.

Everyone go back to FIAT. Problem solved.

Have you heard of byzantine fault tolerance method to mitigate inconsistencies in distributed computing. Let me guess no because you don't know shit about crypto or distributed computing. You can only make up words that suit your agenda. Why don't you go through the series of tweets that followed after where vitalik clearly states that the method to mitigate any attacks is decentralized and follows the BFT model.

This is a good read btw medium.com/@VitalikButerin/minimal-slashing-conditions-20f0b500fc6c

I love when people link this tweet as if it's a bad thing. He's referring to the mechanism in PoS where if people stake and then try to attack the network, their deposit will be automatically deleted. It's honestly a genius way to deter attackers.

No. Maybe one or two extremely shitty useless ones, but otherwise no. ETH's value is based completely on speculation from newfags convinced it will be the world currency cuz smart contracts n sheit.

Another problem I see is that they can print unlimited ETH basically making every coin worth less and less. The hallmark of a shitcoin

Techpill
Techpill

which makes no sense because banks have already made it known they will deploy their own blockchains, not use neet coins.

dapps in general are dumb. the point of distributed computing is to split up work and do it in parallel. that's the only reason it has any value. with ethereum you have lots of computers executing the identical scripts. it's 100% a meme. it goes against software best practices like microservices too, it's a monolith.

bitcoin + sidechains is the future. that's why bitcoin is 3k/coin.

Skullbone

Vitalik said the inflation rate is designed to stabilize ETH around 100m circulating supply. I know you're obsessed with the "limited supply" gimmick of bitcoin but an artificial supply cap does not make necessarily something valuable - just ask all the people who mindlessly hoarded limited edition beanie babies trying to get rich.

Emberburn

I suggest you sell cause once Bancor is released everybody is gonna pour their ETH in that

Fuzzy_Logic
Fuzzy_Logic

ETH's value is not based on speculation it is risen because of the failures of bitcoin devs to come up with any logical solution. Ethereum is clearly superior to bitcoin right now because of its ability to handle more transaction which are also cheaper, smart contracts which effectively remove middle men and a large community. Unless bitcoin devs fix the issues with bitcoin i can see ethereum taking over the cryptomarket in a few months.

Fuzzy_Logic

Yes, that makes it ok. The DAO was literally user error, and besides nobody was forced to participate. You're no different from boomers saying Bitcoin is a scam because some guy lost his private key.

AwesomeTucker

I'd argue hard deflation is actually negative for a currency. You don't want for first-timers to hold their advantage eternally, as it discourages adoption; nor do you want to push people to hold instead of spending.

This is why I stood on the sidelines for years on BTC and jumped on ETH as soon as I heard of it. Having limited inflation during the early stages followed by a constant use of gas from apps years down the line makes sense economically.

It's likely Ethereum has grown too much too fast, but the ideas behind it are much more sound than Bitcoin. Eth is practical, Btc is ideological. In an ideal world Btc should win, but in the real world I'm betting on Eth.

PurpleCharger

The issue isn't that someone fucked up and lost people's Eth, the issue is that devs decided to fork to deal with the fuck up. How is it any different than a bail-out?

Vitalik and the main devs / foundation pretty much said they will continue development on the new chain. What did you expect everyone else to do?

takes2long
takes2long

The d in dapps stands for decentralized, not distributed. There are more advantages to decentralization than just distributed computing. Mainly everyone automatically having access to the same data and having a guarantee that it is correct (voting, business records).

Ethereum doesn't make every mining node execute the same script in full.

PackManBrainlure
PackManBrainlure

So? people still have a choice, and some even made the decision to stay with the old fork. Sorry I'm not convinced that letting a hacker keep 10% of all ether somehow would have been the right decision.

Eth isn't money kiddo. Turing completeness makes it too insecure as a store of value.

TurtleCat

More freedom in the kind of code you can run means more vulnerabilities. BTC is purposely turing incomplete to maximize security.

Newbies think Eth is a strictly-better upgrade over BTC when this isn't the case at all. They aren't even in the same space. BTC is money, Eth is a platform for dapps.

VisualMaster
VisualMaster

putting 10% of all ether in a buggy smart contract is where you need to look, if you are looking for wrong decisions

but anyway "right" or "wrong", doesn't matter, what I am saying is that i wasn't really a choice, Eth development is so centralised that it will die without Vitalik / Main devs. Especially if all of them are actively developing on a eth clone. So don't act like it's some magical consensus miracle in Eth, it works like that because there is a Supreme leader and everyone follows him as they have no real alternative

Harmless_Venom
Harmless_Venom

Bitcoin is clearly much better where everything is in a deadlock while people argue with each other over their conflicting interests until the chain ends up splitting in 2 anyway.

btc has problems, no doubt, as does eth, but at least it's adhering to the idea of decentralization.

Ethereum is a platform for dapps. Ether (ETH) is a currency which can be used to pay for running apps on the Ethereum platform, among other things.

ETH's value is based completely on speculation.

Bitcoin isn't? Why do you think BTC is nearly $3000/coin now? No one buys bitcoin because they want to purchase shit online, they do it because they see it as a way to make more money. Every news story ever talking about BTC is because so and so became a million or made thousands of dollars. No one cares about the blockchain.

Most of us are interesting in doubling/tripling our money, just like Bitcoin or any crypto really. We aren't buying it because we think it's going to be the world's currency or because of it's possibilities or even hype, we all buy it because we see it as an opportunity to make money for ourselves.

Inflation is a tax on cash. Governments want you to spend and invest your cash to progress the economy instead of hoarding it. An economy that only ran on bitcoin would never work because everyone would try to save as much as possible.

I think it's absurd to think the central bank and the elites haven't had a hand in creating the blockchain and bitcoin. No one even knows who the creator of bitcoin is. They could easily hide behind a made up name, Satoshi Nakamoto.

Just as those in control of the game created drug rings & prostitution rings big enough to serve their own agenda, what makes you think they aren't involved at all in the creation of the crypto?

It's much easier to control nations who are all tied in to the money system via the computer. A money system that could easily go down and be made useless in the event of a natural disaster.

Seriously, think about it. Crypto is just another way to control over the masses, no matter how you cut it.

The only away afford is to get rid of all money once and for all. People should be working together to make things without the use off money.

People have built houses and grown their own food forever without any use of money. Now everyone wants someone else to wipe their ass for them in this society...that's what the world is coming to. Crypto makes everyone fucking dumb as shit. Money makes everyone evil as shit.

Get right with God. The homeless and poor are closer to him than any money seekers.

and no, as a matter of fact, ETH and BTC cannot both exist and thrive in the market. yes they both fill different niches but guess what, i dont give a shit, im going to dedicate my ETH millions to driving BTC to zero, buying up BTC exchanges and miners and slagging them, shorting them, hiring teams of lobbysists to pass anti-bitcoin laws

because it's personal now, bitcucks are the biggest, dumbest, cringest faggots on earth and im going to dedicate my life and millions to smashing your lolbertarian fedora coin to splinters
