Watching ODN and ODIN currently.

Obsidian could be a good play in the short term as they finally got shit together and released their OSM (Obsidian Secure Messenger) after starting again from scratch...

Long term ODIN would be a safer bet as everything is going to move over to ODIN this year and year's ahead.

ODIN will begin to work on service nodes copying the same infrastructure their Masternode system has and adding on to it. Their service nodes will help with decentralizing the forked OSM codebase as well as other apps that will be part of their network of privacy focused consumer applications.

It's not just about "muh secure messenger" it's about adoption.

We can make all these scam projects till the world ends but if we really want to see cryptocurrencies or conventions take form there has to be adoption.

We're starting to see big businesses spend time and money working with crypto or blockchain "DLT" but we're not seeing general adoption yet.

This is because most blockchain fundamentals are just over the head of "normies" what Obsidian wanted to originally create was consumer focused applications that utilized DLT concepts. Unfortunately there was so much drama and bad developers that the oath to that was blocked and only now is finally clearing up.

They're delivering the OSM as what was promised and carrying onward with ODIN so there is no more dead weight from the Obsidian days.

I've definitely timed and sold profits for Obsidian in the day but bought back after I started following their plan going forwards and I want to support projects that are for that consumer market.

Most cryptocurrencies right now are either a betting platform, which ones are actually making applications? Those are the ones to be watching and supporting. Not some ERCHOT token21.

By that I mean get to know the developers or immediate community. Deception is a long game and some try to keep up an "image". But it's usually pretty fucking obvious especially if there's a fuckton of drama, circlejerking, or overly confident mindset in the whole community.

Looking through GitHub can be useful as well even if you aren't a programmer. Seeing the admin reactions or browsing their other repos/content. Same goes for social media. The shitbags will TRY to shame nonprogrammers to pretend they're all c y b e r and it's super cringey.

The best thing to do OP is ignore most of the retards on here shilling garbage. Search for dapps and look for coins that have a dapp you actually think is useful. Social media, games or stable coins or things of that nature are some examples.

Examine those dapps on an individual basis. That will actually answer your question. Also keep in mind that there are a lot of people extremely worried about how dapps will effect the ecosystem. Crypto social media is uncensorable which means many people are going to be determined to convince you its a scam. The reality is that due to the fact that you cant censor or ban users in crypto its going to eventually become the standard for social media whether you want it to or not. People are absolutely fucking sick of censorship these days. This fact scares the fuck out of a lot of people. Those people are absolutely fucking determined to convince you to ignore the entire space if possible. (((They))) are going to respond to this post saying that dapps are a scam and Bitcoin is the only thing to pay attention to. Which is funny because Bitcoin is a dapp. The lightning network is also a dapp. kek

Some dapps

Maker Dai - The best stablecoin on the market

Bancor - Decentralized permissionless way to trade ETH and EOS tokens

NewDex - Decentralized exchange on EOS

EOSKnights - The first proper clear cut example of the modern crypto profit model in action. (This is damn near history in the making as its the first game of its kind)

Steemit - The first real social media example on crypto.

Busy - a better version of steemit.

Novusphere - a better implementation of social media (probably the best example so far but still in its early stages.)

Memo - Social media on BCH

Leeroy - Twitter on ETH

DTube - Youtube using proper IPFS implimentation on the blockchain

The list goes on.
It appears right now that EOS, ETH TRX and Neo have the most useable dapps right now.

People have been saying this since ETH has become a token.

>> No.12435506

developers only care about bitcoin (once we see some progress on second layers outside of lightning, then it becomes more interestng) and ethereum.

nobody is interested in other payment coins for obvious reasons, there's no development there. for alt-platforms it's a similar story, because none of them have any compelling reason to get developers to leave the (relatively) huge and active community of ethereum, to go and try and get something thats either only incrementally better, or doing something that ethereum (says it) will have done sometime this year.

>> No.12435517

its the same late adopter perspective you see everywhere, but in different forms.

the assumption is that somehow the coins before are now obsolete or meaningless, and yet the coins after won't obsolete or make meaningless the random token they care about, when the fact is its the first coin to appear at the right time that ends up winning regardless, as as been the case every time.

I'm a programmer & an applied mathematician. My advice is to stay away from cryptocurrencies because they are zero sum games at their best and scams at their worst.

They aren't like stocks which actually make profits that they can eventually pump back to stockholders through dividends or buybacks. They're just a set of tokens, except that they use a horribly rube-goldbergish algorithm to implement it compared to a traditional banking system based on trust.

If you want something risky that might get you rich in a few years, I suggest Nvidia stock.
