One that hasn't been created yet probably. It would need something that really surpasses Bitcoin.

P.S. DOGECOIN!
when you say surpass you have to more specific about that, like if you are talking about surpassing in all over acceptance or surpassing the current bitcoin Rate or something else .
Personally i won't like any altcoin surpassing bitcoin, but it can certainly happen , LTC has a good chance IMHO, or may be some other coin which haven't came to existence  .

If a coin overtakes bitcoin, I don't think it's been released yet. It's also very possible no coin ever overtakes bitcoin ... being first has its advantages.

Coins could easily overtake litecoin, however. I find Darkcoin/Zerocoin interesting.

Etherium is another possibility... it could bomb out, or be really, really big. Usually with threads like this, we get people hawking junk coins that they invested in, so whatever anyone answers... well, they have no idea.

I have about 3 Dogecoins.......lol.  Maybe that will survive??
As most people have said, probably hasn't been created yet.  Bitcoin just has too much publicity around it to be overtaken by any other currencies.

Ether will surpass it in price and in acceptance if it does what it says it will do.

If you look at the development plan of NEM and what they plan to do promotional wise, IF these two things go according to plan, it will become more widely accepted.

You heard it here first. And please don't jump on my case before actually reading up on these things, and make emotional comments. READ UP on these things.

They have VERY BIG plans. They are going to be hard to do. IF they pull off what they are attempting they will be more successful than any current coin. I just personally believe the people behind both projects are very capable of success. Do yourself a favor and RESEARCH these coins.

Etherium is in the same park as NXT and Ripple. Average Joe will just not understand it. The only people who are really getting excited about these are the techies and investors. I can just about explain BTC to Joe Bloggs, but they wouldn't get these types of currencies at all. They fail because not because they aren't clever or unique or innovative, but because you have to be in the industry to understand them. Your average person on the street has no clue how fiat currency works. How can you expect them to understand Ether?

Dogecoin on the other hand, as ridiculous as it may be, has brought cryptocurrency to the masses. People get it. It doesn't matter how clever your platform is if you can't appeal to the lowest common denominator.

The thing about Etherium is... the masses don't need to understand it now. Ideally they wouldn't, until after the fundraising thing. That is when marketing comes into play. And those who bought early can cash out, if they so choose.

This is the exact problems I have had so far with Etherium, NXT and Ripple just too much trouble to use.

The general consumer just wants to go hey i get it and use it, maybe they are targeting different types of users.

Thoughts

P.S. DOGECOIN!

From what I have heard

Bitcoin has a huge network behind it providing security that no other coin can match, as far as I know this means the so called 51% attack

Businesses rely on this infrastructure to provide goods and services

another coin may be widely adopted but for business purposes this has to outweigh Bitcoins infrastructure

as for Etherium, NXT and Ripple will they be decentralised, regulated and what are the fees involved compared to bitcoin, I think businesses will look at these factors before adopting a new currency

as for Bitcoin it has a long way to go to compete against a well marketed new currency, whereas the bitcoin foundation and community has to market bitcoin on every corner to ensure success

I do not believe another altcoin will gain the community bitcoin has to outweigh bitcoins success
