Help me understand how one crypto currency is better than another.
I'm having this problem with researching crypto-currencies and the echo-chamber that seems to surround each one. For every voice on one subreddit that says "X is the future", there's another that claims "X is not going anywhere because Y-coin is superior." Obviously if someone bought into an alt-coin they will advocate it because they benefit the most from it succeeding, but what are these alt-coins truly trying to solve? What's wrong with Bitcoin, and why are Ethereum, Monero, Litecoin, etc better or worse? Thank you for your time.
This question is to see what response the sub actually has of the man...there is a related cross post on bitcoinUK which you can find if you really need to see why this post exists, but it's pointless for most so I won't link to it here. Please let me know what to make of this man.

Other than "Don't do it!" does anybody have any handy advise for at least breaking even with cloud mining? Many days ago, shortly after stumbling into the wonerful world of cryptocurrency but before discovering DogeCoin, I purchased a cloud mining contract. 75 Gigahash/s sha256 "lifetime" and 1.5 MegaHash/s X11 for one year. Today I crunched the numbers on my last two weeks of mining: - I might break even with Bitcoin and Litecoin if the difficulty doesn't go up significantly (it will) and if the exchange rate stays in the current $400 to $500 USD/BTC range. - I'll lose a bit mining Dogecoin under similar circumstances but not much and I'm more inclined to support Dogecoin. - Peercoin and Zetacoin both show large losses, in the neighborhood of 33% return, under current conditions. - I'm tinkering with mining Namecoin, Curecoin and Unobtanium right now but doubt that they'll offer significantly better returns. - Other options include Dash, BitcoinDark and StartCoin (X11 only). I suspect that I've chucked my money into a hole in the ground but would appreciate any advise on making that hole shallower. *Editted for spelling
You can pay with StartCOIN at shops that use CoinGate
Dear StartCOIN Community, As a payment gateway dealing with cryptocurrencies only, our team at CoinGate are very happy about their growing popularity. For quite a long time we worked with Bitcoin payments only, but we eventually came to realize that it’s no longer just Bitcoin that is important. Contrary to some people, we believe that cryptocurrencies should not just be regarded as tokens or assets, but also should serve a purpose in making everyday payments. As the crypto-payments industry is still tiny compared to conventional payment methods, it is quite difficult, however, to inform people about the possibility to pay with cryptocurrencies and convince them it is worth the effort. So, we have come here to this subreddit to let you know that as a result of our integration with ShapeShift, you can actually pay with START if you ever come across one of the CoinGate merchants! In addition to START, our payment gateway allows customers to pay with a number cryptocurrencies. Our team is certain that the so-called altcoins with their rapidly growing value have huge potential in becoming relevant for casual payments online. As such, we are preparing for the future and are currently working on our invoices to make the payment experience with StartCOIN and other cryptocurrencies smooth and friendly to casual users (an upgrade is going live soon). Actually, if you use cryptos for making payments online, but never thought it’s possible to pay with START too, let your favorite merchants know about CoinGate and our payment processing service - we would be super happy if you did! Kind regards, CoinGate Team
We need talk about Simon Dixon / Max Keiser / BankToTheFuture
In the wake of another Bitcoin/Crypto startup failing (Cryptsy) the community needs to become more vigilant to weed out the entrepreneurs who are less than honorable. I notice that Simon Dixon & Max Keiser (+ associated cronies) are pushing their 3rd 'Bitcoin Capital' fund on BankToTheFuture. What (sane) investors almost certainly missed is that regardless of what is invested in the fund, Simon pockets 25% equity and Max gets 25% too. Maximum normal fees on VC funds are "2 and 20" ... i.e. 2% annual management fee + 20% on any capital gain investors receive. These guys are taking 50% of everything, regardless of whether investors profit. This from Max Keiser who rants about 'banksters' constantly. Their funds push 'daily dividends' as a feature, even promoting the total number (not quantity) of dividends paid out. Ignoring the smell of ponzi, how are these generated? I believe it is by mining StartCoin ... can you say "conflict of interest"? There is a reason why BankToTheFuture and these funds are offshore ... they'd never get away with this in the EU/US. BankToTheFuture could be an important crowdfunding platform for our industry and others ... we should pressure them to stop this behavior.
