Jan 15th, 2015. I thought I'd have a look at the activity of some of the altcoins.

Bitcoin
- bitcointalk: 10m+ topics
- activity on https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/graphs/contributors - very high
- Comment: lovely old steam engine

Ripple
- xrptalk.org: 4,100 topics. forum.ripple.com: 5,400 topics
- activity on https://github.com/ripple/rippled/graphs/contributors - high
- Comment: like a Japanese bullet train (driven by a team of experienced, responsible and well-trained people)

Stellar
- stellartalk.org: 1,300 topics
- activity on https://github.com/stellar/stellard/graphs/contributors - medium
- Comment: like a Japanese bullet train (driven by a team of cry babies who are prone to throw their toys out of the pram at any moment)

NXT
- nxtforum.org: 108,000 topics
- activity on https://bitbucket.org/JeanLucPicard/nxt/overview - high
- Comment: resist the new world order. Hippies and anti-government cranks.

Dodge
- doges.org: 48,000 topics
- activity on https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin/graphs/contributors - dwindling
- Drug train

Darkcoin
- darkcointalk.org: 3,200 topics
- activity on https://github.com/darkcoin/darkcoin/graphs/contributors - low
- Drug train

My personal opinion is that
- Bitcoin is dying and will be dead soon. (Litecoin, which I didn't mention, is dead)
- anyone whose business model revolves around Silk Road Reloaded is going nowhere
- "off grid" hippie movements will die
- those who can straddle the tightrope of business and politics, as well as win the hearts and minds of consumers will win

No desired thing is net by your “straddl[ers]” (Eamorr) via such “straddl[ing]” (Eamorr); therefore, this practice thereof will cease in time.

No desired thing is begotten of such straddling by your straddlers; therefore, their correspondent practices will cease in time.

Government isn't perfect, but it's the best we have.

As well as being impractical, Bitcoin is technically incapable of being the world's currency.

We have the knowledge and the solutions. Hippie movements, no matter how well organised at a local level, simply do not scale.

If you should “have” (Eamorr) nothing but poison soup, should you not hunt?

- anyone whose business model revolves around Silk Road Reloaded is going nowhere

So thats Bitcoins business model?

Also, suppose, you know, Silk Road decides to implement all or some of the coins you have listed above? Would that too be their business model?

I don't really care about Silk Road Reloaded.

Anyway, Silk Road requires hiding your identity. If the Silk Road folks want to spend millions of $$$, time, effort and political persuasion into setting up a currency, best of luck to them.

Silk Road has done more damage to crypto than all the market manipulators put together.

And this post isnt damaging?

The FUD we see every day isnt just what you see written about on a forum. Its the people who past these kind of threads that abuse its name vocally to their friends and peers. Post after post on this forumn speaking about the fall of Bitcoin as people praise other coins that they hold more of. This is the stuff you would epect to see on cryptocointalk or something else more dedicated toward the inteterest.

Im not directing all of this toward you personally but its just getting old.

Sigh. Last time I checked, this is the alt-coin section.

If you don't like to hear objective criticism, then I suggest you go back to wherever you're most comfortable.

Hi Eamorr, interesting that you manually compiled some of the data into the OP. You might be interested to take a look at www.coingecko.com for more stats updated daily!

What's your view on BitShares?

BitShares 11946 Topics

https://github.com/BitShares

Also where did you get your stats on NXT?
You say they have 108000 topics but according to nxtforum.org they only have 6516, big difference?

Also Dogecoin only has 9800 topics but you given them 40 000+?

So BitShares may well have the most topics after Bitcoin then?

I don't have much of an opinion.

My initial impression is:
- one man band
- no community
- no money
- no influence
- they don't even bother to update their Twitter


Also where did you get your stats on NXT?
You say they have 108000 topics but according to nxtforum.org they only have 6516, big difference?
Huh
nxtforum.org

"General Discussion" has 53,000 posts alone.


Also Dogecoin only has 9800 topics but you given them 40 000+?
Please see doges.org, as cited.

So BitShares may well have the most topics after Bitcoin then?

Eh, no.

Ok you're confusing posts and topics

Doge.org has 53107 posts in 9802 topics

If you look at nxtforum.org scroll to bottom you'll see a forum stats option...

NXT has 148711 posts in 6516 topics

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?action=stats

BitShares has 168808 posts in 11946 topics

So BitShares does have more posts and topics than others on your list I believe

Apologies for previous post, I meant "topics".

Yes you are confused. They have 53000 posts (Not Topics - you are wrong) in 'general discussion' but only 1545 topics

These contribute to their total of 148000 posts & 6516 topics

BitShares has both more posts and topics than any of the others you mentioned, excl. Bitcoin & BitShares probably have a pretty busy GitHub too by comparison I imagine.

Yes, you're right. My bad. nxtform.org doesn't have anywhere the number of topics I reported.

I think coingecko's analysis is far, far superior to mine (http://www.coingecko.com)

One thing I would say about coingecko: ripple's community is reported as being "forum.ripple.com". That's more for the developers and a place to talk directly to the employees. The real ripple talk takes place at xrptalk.org.

This results in the "community activity" metric for Ripple being unfairly attenuated.
