I think one of the biggest drawbacks with BTC are the long transaction times.

So, if there's going to be an alternative coin getting to be (relatively) 'mainstream', I'm sure it'll have to be one with short transaction times. Of all the 390527835098723 recently introduced CloneCoins, Worldcoin seems to be the most popular (for whatever reason) at this moment.

I'm curious if this one is going to stick, or if another coin will overtake. To get to a conclusion on this, I think it's important to see if there's other things that new coins could improve on, relative to WDC and BTC. For example, how bloated will WDC's blockchain get? I think this is a problem with Bitcoin, and I'm not sure how Worldcoin handles this. Any input from people less nooby than I?

Personally, I hope it sticks, I really love those fast transactions Cheesy

Hey Bazkie Grin

The fast transactions are nice, I think online wallets can overcome the blockchain size for casual users of worldcoin (no doubt services like this will become available when the need arises). Worldcoins biggest strength at this point (in my opinion) is it's community - one thing that really makes it stand out.

i was hopeful however it seems the devs on dgc have provided much more so far and people have moved on from wdc for now. Hopefully some market place or use for wdc soon. I favoured wdc over dgc i do though think dgc current price is not stable there is no way it can be worth so much more than wdc.
