Very nicely written guide on how hardware wallets work for these who are not sure: https://goo.gl/Rt9uvM

@
Pushingtowin certain agree, Dash aims to be the most user-friendly cryptocurrency in the world.

Its network features instantly confirmed, double-spend-proof transactions, an erasable transaction history and a self-governing & self-funding model through incentivized full nodes.
Dash is the first true Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). 
 
Monero is a secure, private, untraceable currency. Some people might think that this definition could be applied to Bitcoin but that is actually not the case when it comes to being private and untraceable. Monero is a digital currency that uses a different kind of cryptography to allow for these specific attributes.
 
There is a common misconception that Bitcoin is entirely untraceable digital money. The very premise of Bitcoin is that all transactions can be viewed on a public ledger called the blockchain. This is useful because it allows anyone to verify that a transaction occurred, particularly for ones that need to be completely transparent (e.g. government, non-profit spending).
 
Monero is different than Bitcoin in that it focuses on the privacy aspect of transacting with a digital currency.
 
Monero uses a different type of technology to make the transactions untraceable and the balances hidden. If your bitcoin address is ever shared publicly, anyone can view your balance and all other bitcoin addresses you have ever transacted with. Even though names aren’t explicitly stated on the blockchain, if someone decides to share their address publicly, all previous and future activity associated with that address will forever be linked to that person. You also don’t necessarily need to share your address publicly for someone to figure out that you own it. In fact, just transacting with other tagged addresses may be enough for someone to figure out that an account is owned by you.

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero and Dash

Those are the ones to watch.

Etheruem is what we now buy primarily.

I do not know much about Monero or Dash but if Ether can have such massive backers with the alliance that was formed, i will most definitely back it! Will most definitely look into the other two. Need to understand what differentiates the different cryptos first.

I have bought bitcoin a long time ago and I am very happy with the growth over the last couple of years, also did a few bitcoin transactions and it is so easy and fast, it has to be the future.

 

I have heard about Etherium, but have not had a real look at it since I know there are so many scam coins out there, but the way I understand it Etherium is more for creating smart contracts and to ensure proof of work, stuff like that.  Can it also be used as a currency and is that the purpose of the coin?

Etheruem is essentially facebook if bitcoin is myspace.

It ads the missing components.

Very nice Ted Talk -> He talks about etheruem and the blockchain https://www.ted.com/...ey_and_business

I am bullish on Etherium and all crypto currency, however I think we may be in a bit of a bubble at the moment across all the cryptos, But Long Term Etherium looks promising, exciting times ahead

How are we feeling about the rise of Ethereum? With a market cap of over R2 billion which is 10% of the market cap of Bitcoin and yet not even a 10th the price of Bitcoin.

 

Is the general public long on cyrptocurrency yet?
