It should use not a PoW then or use bitcoin chain as ethalon of timestamp server.

Any independent PoW alt chains are poised to die.

What about alts that do improve over bitcoin - for example have better anonymity?

I dont see any alts that actually improve anything over bitcoin. Its all about the network and its security i guess but maybe you can enlighten me as to which one you may have in mind?
Anonymity is a non issue or simply a myth.

What I had on mind is this: https://cryptonote.org/inside/ - that does improve anonymity, but I believe that there are possible also other improvements (maybe quick transactions, maybe something that does not burn so much electricity for nothing, maybe something closing a security problem that we don't know yet about, maybe other things that we cannot even imagine now).

Chains that provide a viable decentralized online marketplace and derivatives trading will likely be valuable.  Btsx and nxt are the frontrunners right now.  One of those will likely take 2nd place in market cap at some point.  Ripple is centralized.  I believe 3-5 chains will emerge as dominant with bitcoin being the primary POW coin (digital gold).  A decentralized internet such as maidsafe may have potential.  All others will slowly drift into obscurity.  I could also be wrong about this.

I understand your point, and it's a good one: PoW "splitting" is problematic in the sense that the security of one chain cannibalizes the security of another chain.

Where I disagree with you is that this means there can only be one valuable chain. There can only be one chain with security as the main feature, that I agree with.

If however you value some other feature higher for some reason, like privacy, because you're trying to run a black market for example, then you will probably be willing to compromise: less network security, more anonymity.

This probably puts a pretty strict upper limit on the max valuation of the "2nd most valuable chain", but I believe it's higher than zero in the long term.

I say (and satoshi said something similar), that "long fork problem" (like CJDNS founder calls it) - is a problem where only one PoW fork survives. Not necessary, but probably Bitcoin. Others either:

- never become mature and die in infancy merging into Main fork their innovations [EVOLUTION], or
- due to some accident (immature fork may become "better" than very mature fork only due to some very big and dramatic event) one of them becomes Main fork, making former Main fork unsecured [REVOLUTION]

I didn't investigated proof of capacity, this looks interesting. But I have no opinion so far. Other proofs I know (proof of stake, etc) - don't impress.

Satoshi had a public thoughts about this using term "CPU power". After 4 yrs of evolution, I think term "cpu power" may be replaced by "electrical power". Also his merged mining idea doesn't solve long fork threat (hovewer in its namecoin realization).

Taking all together I summarize that others POW forks are probably only needed to improve Bitcoin and then become abandoned. No gold or silver or copper. Bitcoin is a complex device and others are spare parts - this is more correct analogy.

These are just my thoughts. And oh... this run out of topic )

So for on topic, what looks likelier - $360 or $580? Wish I had kept some fiat handy, used all in the last dip to buy up, and didn't sell them.

Can some TA expert tell us if bitcoin's going to go up, or down in price?

Huh, look at this. We're now pretty much exactly one full SD below the daily 200 SMA.



And it doesn't really look like support either :/

When was the last time that even happened... Right. Quite a while ago.



So, if 2011 is any indication, we'll see another painful capitulation soon enough, then about a year of at best weak price increase, ending in about 600/700 if we're lucky.

But maybe GABI and COIN will save us! Because as everyone knows, HNIs love to throw funds into a downtrend.

Falllling(not sure if I got the exact number of "l") is a super bear troll that keeps saying we are about to go to 0 and Bitcoin is useless and about to die, like a broken disk.

In fact falllllling says Bitcoin will die, so he is still more optimist than falllllllllling
