I do not see Bitshares or Steem as being a competitor to Cardano. If EOS launching before Cardano concerns you then you should be concerned about any smart contract coin that came after ETH/ETC. Both of those have larger funding than EOS, Dfinity, and RChain.
Charles Hoskins and Cardano are heavily involved with ETC so just because the coin hasn’t been around as long doesn’t mean it is lacking the experience which is what I am guessing why you are giving EOS and the like an advantage.
@7UP - You keep mentioning you do not see it skyrocketing like others might very soon. In this space any coin can sky rocket at any time for no reason at all. So I do not understand your though process here.
I mean ADA did have its skyrocket just as all new coins do. We see this graph happen all the time.
All three of the graphs are for smart contract platforms and just so a small sampling. I think this year is going to be the one for the books as last year and previous year trends are going to be broken as there is a much larger user group and developer view on the space.
Unless you can give me some legit reason other than a gut feeling and the reasons you mentioned we are going to have to agree to disagree as I feel the coins that @peterhaymond mentioned are more or less shit coins in my book.
I do not see DEX’s actually making it into production with out following KYC and AML laws which more or less defeats one of the primary purposes and are causing most of the complaints of new users trying to setup new accounts on current exchanges.
