    Cardano has one big problem to legitimacy in my eyes. Why haven't the by the book US exchanges like Coinbase listed it? I'd bet that they are worried it doesn't pass the howey test so there could be issues in the future with the SEC. Nothing else makes sense to me, Coinbase has listed practically everything half decent. Doesn't mean it can't pump, but Cardano is potentially effectively XRP by stealth (founders effectively originally held entire supply and are just pumping and distributing it), but it won't actually be the next anything unless it clears the US regulatory hurdle.

    Is extended binance "maintenance" outages normal?
    Pulled out a bit of ADA to my wallet last night but unable to withdraw the rest this morning :(

    Coinbase has long been anti ADA due to residual anger from the ETC split.

    Reading back through this thread is interesting from last year about Cardano, Ethereum.

    I think it's fair to say we've kind of accepted high fees/ low transaction speed & sidechains with bitcoin but it feels like Etheruem is going to have it's lunch cut by Cardano and Polkadot, the utility and price is sh!t for Etheruem and the only way it's scaling is sidechains and 2.0 is years away.

    I think I read that 3,000 of 3,800 dapps are on Ethereum and only 31% released this year are on ETH....

    Anyway whatever time will tell.

    It's funny, soo many stories of these - so few of, kept my Crypto - now I'm worth $millions.. Guess it just takes someone super strong to hold or super dumb to luck into the moments they go through the roof.

    If I held and just kept to my original plan of slowly buying and kept at it.. I'd have some life changing $ by now.

    So, ETH to 10k by EOY? Not plausible? Seems to be going gangbusters, even if trailing BTC gains right now

    I am a big ETH supporter but I think that is a tad optimistic. However anything is plausible in the crypto space. No one knows for sure though and anyone telling you different you need to stay away from.

    Nope. Cardano had released native chain multi assets and an ERC-20 smart contract converter. The projects are already jumping over.

    Crazy that a company such as mastercard doesnt invest heavily in a solid smaller coin and then annouce using it as payment, get both payments and massive return on initial investment ( unless they already bought into bitcoin in teh past )

    Big companies like that aren't risk takers, even Tesla they're not really taking a risk (despite how Elon portrays things, 1.5B is a like you or I going to the casino and dumping 1k on the tables, big, but not life changing if it doesn't pan out), buying in big of X shitcoin isn't going to suddenly make it the preferred crypto. buying big into the already biggest coin just solidifies it's market cap and public opinion = good for business.

    I haven't been paying much attention to various altcoins and their different approaches. How did ADA solve the whole block-space issue/speed of the blockchain size increasing? (the reason that fee's get pressured upwards)

    edit:
    wow, apparently the ETH blockchain is up to 6.4TB
