Since I am counter culture I avoided the Doc Marten Bitcoin and went with Ethereum.

Transaction was pretty smooth. Loaded Coinbase on my phone to get started, validated my email and phone, registered a credit card and poof. Bought me some Etherum.

Just read that the bitcoin mining network is using as much electricity each day as a medium sized country and so does etherum. Currently each bitcoin creation uses as much electricity as the average american household does in 2 years.

Been in bitcoin for a while. As I see it, the industry is rallying around bitcoin. It is making bitcoin the standard. When this happens, it is hard for competing cryptos to compete. All my money is on bitcoin.

Though I could see Ethereum make it. I think many cryptocurrencies will develope their own niche markets.
