"Why or why not?"
One of cryptocurrency's biggest potentials is as a method of online payment that can replace credit cards and be much more efficient than credit cards are. - Debit cards and international remittances too! 😊
I'm more interested in what the technology could facilitate than speculating but can't help investing in it's growth. The internet and mobile smart phones have changed our lives, blockchain will too. Glad I invested in those and benefited from their growth but even more glad they are available to everyone and what we do with the technology. - Well said! While it's great that we are able to make some extra money from it, what's even greater is how the technology will be able to improve the numerous inefficiencies in multiple facets of daily life. For one, think about the vast number of unbanked people in the world! Crypto will be able to help them be both more nimble as well as save better. 😄
I am a short term trader and I love to acquire coins - Can't blame ya. It sure is exciting! Nothing beats seeing a coin suddenly break through resistance and go parabolic. 💰
don't agree. i am more interested in underlying technology & future improvements & scalability. also new protocols like lightning.. if progress of these are good, price will come.. i do look for & invest in dapps / tokens if i see good flip candidate. on the whole i am pretty satisfied with the progress. - Yup, I share the same pov about how the price will come along nicely should the underlying technology continue to improve. 😌
Quite the opposite actually, I'm more interested in the underlying technology - That's great! Keep on learning. Knowledge truly is power in this field. 🤓
make a line break - Good recommendation! Trying it out today (:
You certainly can use if for speculation but the underlying technology is transformative. - Agreed. Can't wait to see how the space will be like in like a decade. 🤔
still missing killer apps - All in due time. In the meantime, enjoy cryptokitties gahaha.
I love the technology itself and try to stay on top of everything that's going on but if in the meantime a Lambo suddenly appears in my garage I won't mind either 😉 - I feel ya 😂 Skrrrt 🏎️
Indeed...if it were not it's high speculative nature I wouldnt dare so investing even if it's technology its outstanding..... I think it's speculation nature makes it more exciting because most people invest in Bitcoin and still don't know what is block chain technology even by simple definition 🤣😂 - While I understand how these speculators feel (cause I've been there), over time as I began to be more in tune with the news and what's going on in the industry, I started to really appreciate the amount of effort that people are putting in to push this technology and build the space. I am also convinced that the brightest minds are also in on blockchain atm. 🧠
Showing more interest in speculation as opposed to the ground-breaking ideas and technicalities of crytocurrency can only be described as thoughtless and egotistical behavior. It is like marrying someone for their looks - red flag ! - That's a pretty critical assessment. I think that it's good to have an appreciation of both! 🙏
I think this tech is more important for advancing freedom than speculation
I think cryptocurrency is more like the future of commerce and more than just a tool for earning money or whatsoever. - I agree with this as well. Given the numerous cases of personal data management by big companies, I've grown to become on privacy issues. I believe that crypto and blockchain can really help with this and grant more autonomy to the end user. 😄
I'm more interested in the philosophical aspects from issuing a new type of money - Curious to hear what you have to say about it. Do tell more in tomorrow's poll! 😬
Im in this for the technology 🤖 - Good on you! 👍
