I am starting to think so, why would you want any other altcoin when you have ethereum that can do it all?

What exactly is ethereum?  Is it a crypto currency of its own or a platform for cryptos?

I don't get your logic. Currently we have shit load of altcoins that somehow co-exist and we don't see everyone jumping on one (currently "best") altcoin.
Why do you think it would be different with Ether? Not to mention you can use Ether to create more altcoins.

Edit:

Both?

They co-exist but are rapidly being sold into oblivion. There is no barrier to entry and 100 of coins are being introduced every month. Huge multipools selling for a profit for BTC.  My 8 month honeymoon with alts are now over.  I'm now licking my wounds and sticking with BTC(asset) and now ETH(platform).. The only two that a feel have a future. I should have stuck with BTC from day one. I would have saved a heck of a lot of my money.

It's not going to kill them it's going to die a slow and painful death. It's not that great of a thing.

ETH(platform).
Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Ethereum as a platform isn't any more likely than Ethereum as a currency.

Vitalik admitted that oracles are a better solution for most of the things people what to do with Ethereum, and there's absolutely zero reason for those oracles to work with Ethereum instead of Bitcoin.

Im sorry but no, it seems every new month there is new hot altcoin. And you need new blood every month buying the useless crap.

Sorry but you had to post in altcoin section to discuss with altcoin-minded people instead...

Simple human greed, they wish to be like btc early adopters, so they always dump hundreds dollars here and there on alt coins. We have thousands of these greedy pigs and that add up to multi millions market cap for alt coins.

Believe it or not, these ppl still refuse to see the price of btc isnt just hype.

Does anyone have a link to these "oracles" or what Justus is referring to in this post ?

Oracle is a generic term, not specific to any particular implementation.

This is the blog post I was talking about:

Ethereum looks promising, but its still in a concept stage. Even now they are not sure what tech to use, and are trying to team up for DPOS. So I doubt anything can be said about it right now.
