I ran some charts on the top 10 coins by marketcap, to see how they individually performed had you invested 6, 12, 18, 24 and 30 months ago. Here’s my results. The conclusions are unclear but some thoughts come to mind:
I think we have a division in possible conclusions, it’s: “Bitcoin will kill all/most alt-coins given enough time” vs “new alt-coins have utility that will eventually out perform Bitcoin”.

I made some comments on some of the leading alt-coins on a Slack channel yesterday. People found it useful, so this is an informal quick and dirty paste of comments for reference. I might add more to this post later.
FCT – I like Factom, have just recently started holding them. I like that the project comes from a founder deep inside an industry working on a solution rather than the other way around which is the norm for crypto projects. You can see this playing out with industry players coming onto the technology, including government departmentsOne Comment
This is a bit of a tangent to my usual posts on crypto-asset analysis. But since any investor in this space will need a good solution for storing your tokens, I thought I’d make mention of Exodus Wallet.
Currently there’s only two user friendly multi-token wallets available, Jaxx and Exodus. Of the two, Exodus appeals most to me due to its design and usability. It’s in fast development and the most common question from the community is what tokens and features will be supported in the roadmap?
I did some research on their Slack channel this morning and here is my best definitive list below which I’ll keep updated for a while until Exodus have their own FAQ that supersedes this one. This article will continue to be updated through direct conversation with the Exodus team.
Metcalfe’s Law states the value of a network is proportional to the number of members squared.
I thought it’d be fun to run the numbers on the Bitcoin Network.
Since we don’t have solid figures on the number of active users on the network, I’ve had to use network transactions** as a proxy to active users.
** Network transactions per day excluding long chains (e.g. produced by bitcoin mixers)
Dash’s focus is a payment network so transaction turnover will be key. Let’s run some numbers to figure out transaction turnover and market cap valuations…
This is Bitcoin’s transaction turnover as a function of their market cap:

Bitcoin’s blockchain is like a telephone party line, it’ll work for a village but it won’t when it scales to the world.
Pundits are debating whether we should increase the block size indefinitely to allow more capacity on the network. Well I guess it’s time to take an analytical approach…
Here’s the block size over time on a log scale.
Just for kicks, I thought I’d apply some trading technical analysis to the Bitcoin Network transactions per second graph.Comments closed
