My only guess is Ripple. If they make it more user-friendly it can (and will  Tongue) be "Apple" of the crypto's
That doesnt mean that BTC or any other coin will be trash.

I think you will see a whole big range of 'meme-coins' develop, as JesusCoin, LibertyCoin, Americoin, AfroCoin, EnviroCoin, things like those, get produced and minted... people will tend to want to deal with their own kind... and then there will be metacurriencies:  Bundles of currencies to suit each individual.

At any rate, it is impossible that BTC will be successful and others not, though I would bet that BTC holds the lead.  But there will be a whole 'ecology' of coinage out there... each coin with its own niche.

I think LTC is a good contender for second space, just by hearing the perspectiv of others. The other could be ripple, but to be honest I am not so sure about the centralised control where a company hands out the initial coins and gets a lead on everyone else until they open the source. Maybe someone can educate me, but it seems against the spirit of what crypto currency is and should be about.

Litecoin requires too much energy per MH/s. Fewer miners will support the network. That makes it less secure.
really? how much more?
My gpus are maxed out no matter I mine btc or ltc anyway, makes no difference to me.
Have you heard about ASICs? They take about 1-2% of the power per MH/s of a GPU for mining Bitcoin.

ASICs? A sick what?  Grin j/k

Most people view LTC's ability staying out of ASIC arm race as a positive factor, not disadvantage.
