I can't name any other coin/token, which failed more times than ETH. It's not about loving or hating it, it's all about people losing money, because of situations which can be avoided. I would care less if these ETH based projects were not asking money from the masses, but that's not the case. And believe me when I'm saying that Ethereum has some powerful lobbyists. Otherwise its price would be probably 1/5 from the current one.

Didn't we had enough of this?

That's true to a certain extent. One of the very main reason that people strongly (apart from the belief that ETH really does good / difference to the world) believe in ETH is because of the various strong backers (Microsoft, banks, etc) which you referred to "strong lobbyist". Then again if you have unlimited amount of investment money means you can fail as many times as you want. Take Uber for an example; Uber is still burning money after years but still there are investors rushing in to throw money even though there might be no sight of profit at all.

What do you mean by failing many times?
If you mean the scams (phishing, fraudulent crowdsales etc) and hacks, in my opinion it is not ETH fault.
Ethereum created an easy way to create different tokens, so the ICO fever began, but hackers and phishing scams would exist with or without ETH, and the projects trying to make good use of it shoudn't pay for acts of criminals.
There have been scams, hacking and other frauds with Bitcoin as well. But I don't think people see it as "failures" as Bitcoin stoop up again stronger.
I also don't agree with the "projects asking money from the masses" part, because ICOs are still very inaccessible to 99% of the population. People that fall for phishing scams or sent ETH to an ICO for a project that will never be developed are trying to achieve quick profits and have at least a minor knowledge to manage their own wallets and find out about the ICOs. I am very sorry for them and I know that I could be deceived as well, but it is not like Vitalik and team are in front of churches trying to rip off money from some old innocent people.
So, I see your point, but I have a different opinion and I am still supporting Ethereum as I strongly believe in the technology.

I think Ethereum the Platform is cool technology. I don't think it's unique as there are at least a dozen similar platforms out there all equally interesting. These platforms might have uses for private chains; but, it remains to be seen if they are more useful than centralized systems for businesses.

ETH the token has little value. It's been promoted as a "world super computer" that can run DAPPS, smart contracts, a currency, DAOs and useful to banks. Even someone with basic technology understanding knows that a decentralized system 100s if not 1000s of times slower than a cell phone will never be capable of all that. The recent failures during ICOs demonstrate just how slow a decentralized system really is. A decentralized system might do one thing well (like being a currency) but, it will never be capable of doing a multitude of functions. If there was ever a popular DAPP ETH would slow to a crawl and the DAPP would be of no use.

I suppose it will retain some value only because the average investor lacks technical knowledge and is easily manipulated into believing that the ETH network is capable of doing the impossible.

Yes, I still support ETH but with recent news about the vulnerability of it from hacking issues, I am quite disappointed with it. I hope they can make it more secure so that many people can have a peace of mind.

Please, can you explain your point of view better? I was just thinking about investing in Eth, I don't have many technical skills to understand the details but what's does not convince you? Security?

I still support Ethereum, since there are some working dApps running on it. And more and more interesting projects are going into beta phase in this year.

I will walk 50/50 just because on the 1st of August it is a segwit, but ethereum is actually a good coin, when viewed from the power of altcoin, surely you can not deny that ethereum is one of the best altcoin at the moment, so in conclusion, For now ethereum is still considered a good altcoin as an investment.

I will sure to support ETH, I think it is very important to some ICO projects with fast transfer rate and altcoin distribution. What's more, the ETH has been widely accepted as the ICO payment.

"support", "like", "hate", "f***", ...
people are getting too emotional in my opinion. and in this market you will lose all your money the day you start using your emotions instead of cold hard logic of your brain. just get in, make the profit, dump and get the hell out of there! and then stay out when things don't look good. it is not like there is a lack of "variety" to choose from!

it is a cool technology but it has failed to deliver. multiple times when things got serious and got some traction.

Your reason is nice and no matter who is behind a project if it makes people to lose money is not advisable to invest in. I have been a fan of Ethereum but when I find out that have money in one of the Ethereum wallet online providers and they system was hack I have to change my mind.

Im not a big supporter of this coin, to me its not a currency but it does hold value, i just dont have much confidence in it becaus it could be out gunned at any moment, alot of people dont see it that way, some even go as far as to compare it to bitcoin even saying that it will replace vitcoin, thats impossible because bitcoin and etherum are two sepperate thing$ , bitcoin-currency< eather-blockchain, so it would never replace bitcoin or any other E-currency , bitcoin we know is here to stay, eather never know, we could wake up one morning and eather could be dead.

I used to be a big fan of ethereum. It was my first investment. I took $16 and bought 0.998 ethereum. I just wanted to try investing into something, so I used a small amount of money. I was deeply happy every day watching the price growing. When it became around $180 I decided to see whether my eth is okay. I found out it was all stolen on ethereum-wallet.net. I got 40% reimbursement from the website owners and that's it. Since then there were other cases with people losing money. So now I don't feel like talking about ethereum anymore.

For me I want to support Etherium becuase these one has many projects,even though it fails many times I will still support it and it can give such big effect and good feedback from others that gets benefits from it.Even sometimes it has bad effects its growth has a good effect.
