In this collaboration episode with JW Weatherman, we talk about some of the reasons why Bitcoin is best, versus the altcoins. Some factors:

  • Economics – Money as the most saleable and liquid asset
  • Confidence in Bitcoin’s monetary policy
  • Exchanges
  • Proof of Work mining
  • Mining decentralisation
  • Financialisation, such as Futures and a coming ETF
  • Developer incentive
  • Upper layers are being built on Bitcoin
  • Altcoin affinity scamming
  • We also discuss some of the security flaws and problems with the design and execution of altcoins: Bcash, EOS, Ethereum, Ripple, Monero, Zcash
