This is well worth a read as it's important to hear the take of people with the ability to look beyond the next five minutes of touching themselves and who don't Swat people on Twitter who annoy them.

TLDR - There will be utility coins and money coins. BTC is the still the prime candidate to be the money coin.

Thanks for sharing, that was a very interesting read. It's unusual to find such informed opinion from professional investors as most of them don't have an in-depth understanding of the crypto world. Also good as it confirms most of my opinions as to where this is headed.

You should have just copied the entire article instead of making people open a potentially harmful PDF file. That being said, it's quite a realistic perspective, which is something that is refreshing for a change.

I was pretty bored of reading through the many rehashed articles all stating the same, but with slightly different wording. Bitcoin is a multifunctional tool that allows itself to be shaped according to your needs, and that's important.

In order to move forward, there is one thing left to do, and that's making sure lightning network gives Bitcoin the boost that it needs to grow further. The longer it takes to have it working, the longer it will take to progress.

It's 26 pages. I don't think this forum would take too kindly to that being rehashed. Sometimes you just have to live a little.

It's interesting how few people have picked up on the utility coin vs money coin angle. It's totally obvious and it means there's no competition between the two ultimately.

It is working, albeit in the form of invitation only release candidate testing. I'm quite hopeful that a general release product will be available within the next 6 months.

lol, might have made the record for longest post ever.

That's how I have seen this developing for a long time. So many are focused on the relative market capitalisation of each coin without realising that they are complementary to each other, not in competition. LTC, for example, is the most likely candidate to be the biggest side chain to BTC.

This is certainly refreshing after all the sensational but shallow articles. Going to give it a solid read later tonight when I really got the time to properly read it. I also think bitcoin will be more of a money/wealth coin even if LN is launched and works like it should. And that doesn't have to be a bad thing imo. It would be really interesting if sidechains will be a part of it the future.

Thanks gentlemand

Not often there is a read as good as this, written by someone who knows what they are talking about, reasonably and in depth.

Best thing I have read on crypto in months.

What's funny is that these kind of articles have been circulating pretty heavily with most of them rehashed and pointing a certain crypto to be the best pick in both fields (utility and money). As of now, bitcoin is the money crypto, with its utility at an all time low and with only investors jumping on board to take up profits. Tens of thousands of transactions are always stuck on the network, and seeing that bitcoin is the only avenue to get other cryptos, it is expected that the volume of transactions is always up. Honestly IMO we don't need a separate utility coin if bitcoin can solve all these problems, I mean why would you need to board another car when your car can potentially take you to places you need to go without having to rent another one? In paper, that means a waste of time and money, but with bitcoin's situation, it would result to both if you wouldn't use other cryptos in transferring. Hopefully LN really solves the issue on scaling and transaction times. Bitcoin is a mess right now even with SegWit enabled.
