Personally I am only really interested in bitcoin 2.0 platforms like Ethereum, Counterparty, NEM, NXT, etc. But back in the old 'n days I was into WDC VTC LTC and PPC. Anything forked from BTC and LTC nowadays are pretty much crap.

And then the namedropping of random coins have started. So let me also drop a name, but first let me share my thought:)

After 1.5 year of playing around with Cryptos I have got the experience that 100.000 factors have to be considered to know whether a coin is legit or not. But still I wouldn't say it is just some guesswork to be a happy investor/miner/holder/staker. Probably a fortuneteller would have the same chance as me to become successful.

My five cent would be:
- Make sure the coin has solid ground values and some ideas about its future.
- A dedicated developer team that is eager to make things that are useful and not just copy/paste other coins that have had the luck to become successful. Few coins have survived with only a single developer.
- A community that supports the coin and do not hesitate to help each other. A community that seems to be full of egoists will probably not have any future.
- If you find a good coin, spread the word to others. It's hard to become successful alone.

In my case, I put a lot of interest right now in SterlingCoin. (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=721936.0)


Maybe I should code a Tipping bot, instead of these well-known DDos bots. I would tip your Wallets until these were overloaded.

Try to deduce what the intention behind the alt coin is.   Is it for the devs to get rich?  That kind of thing.

They're mostly all worthless unless you want to make money off pump&dumps.   Which makes the job easier, yet harder to find the needle in the haystack I guess.

Why even bother? Just stick to Bitcoin.

Well bitcoin is good but no anonymity. That is why some BTC whales went to Monero.

This time last year there were less than 50 coins on coinmarketcap, which made picking a winner pump&dump possible. Nowadays there are too many coins and it makes picking a winner pump&dump extremely difficult.

Haven't you thought of the gold rush?

I would say we are in the middle of 21st century gold rush. It will probably be as the last time, a very few will be lucky and the rest survivals will not even earn bread and butter. Smiley

If one should wish to abolish the state, money, and private property, one should look into this.

Well, a virtual goldrush. But there are more than one similarities between this and the wild west: there's quite some people digging for digital gold, people trying to steal that digital gold, you can gamble with what you find and when your equipment wear out there's plenty of shops to get new gear. Hell there's even hookers that'll accept your digital gold.

So when looking for legitimacy consider your own observation: the streets don't change, only their names.

Both have and had, respectively, states, money, and private property underlying their depravity.

Is the stock market a virtual gold rush?  

No one way you can make money off this stuff unless you have the best trading bots or you acquired equity at the very beginning at low cost..  even then it is no path to easy riches, your equity is not guaranteed to be worth a thing and many tech companies do not have an IPO until 5-10 years down the road.

The hookers provided the blow!

Well, I would say that the stock market was wild west in the 60s and 80s, when everybody thought they could make a fortune on stocks. Instead of Miners, they were called Yuppies Smiley
