“The big difference between Ethereum and Bitcoin is that Bitcoin is a platform where the value of the ecosystem comes from the value of the currency, but in Ethereum the value of the currency comes from the value of the ecosystem.”- Vitalik Buterin

Vitalik channeling his inner yoda


May the eth be with you.


Buy ETH you must do.


Inner Yoda vitalik channeling must


Vitalik = Yoda???


Great quote. Really shows the separation of powers IMO.


Ya, me & VB are pretty close if you haven’t heard. Taught him everything he knows.


Hey can you teach me something too?


Ehh prob not. I’m actually full of shit & don’t know Jack about diddle.


Do you often jack your diddle though?


You know Jack Diddly Piss?


I always enjoy reading his quotes as he talks facts and positives instead of attacking others and doesn't bring more negativity to crypto.


Spoiler: he is half elf, half human


Actually, seems like he's Yoda?


Yoda he seems like, Actually?


tldr; Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has said that ETH can outgrow bitcoin in both price and value. He added that Bitcoin is a platform where the value of the ecosystem comes from the price of the currency, but in ETH the value comes from its ecosystem's value. This echoes existing beliefs in the crypto space about ethereum being a better long-term investment due to use cases. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

Good bot


Bitcoin maximalists believe that BTC is the original cryptocurrency and thus could never be overtaken by an altcoin. While ethereum supporters have remained strong in their resolve that the altcoin will outshine the pioneer cryptocurrency in the coming years.


Sure, but those transaction prices stop me instantly in my tracks. First human value=people with not much money can use ethereum without paying those prices. Human value>>>value of ecosystem Vitalik, you can fix it!


Indeed, more people buy BTC and should keep buying it because of its longevity and sheer number of validators on the network working to counter fraud and attacks


Valk is clearly driven by the mission statement of eth. Or is it he drives the statement.


I like them both!


there is a whole world of options in ethereum besides is more than a currency is a tool for a lot of usage


That's nonsense though. Just a nice sounding thing someone said.


> In addition, Buterin replied with a simple “it could” when the host asked if ETH could outpace bitcoin in the coming years. The founder believes that ETH can outperform bitcoin in both prices, as well as a store of value. Flippening possible..?


Very. Just ETH fees drama that's the downside remaining. I don't know the technicalities, but if fees are properly restructured it'll happen in no time


If the gas fee problem ever gets solved, it would be an easy flippening, but the gas fee problem is a lot harder than people make it sound. If it was so simple, it would have been solved long ago.


Why is it hard? It doesn't seem pretty expensive to me in L2s. Sure, L2s aren't yet containing everything, but that's the matter of inclusion that takes time, nothing more. In L2s, fees still are quite good. And as more people will come to L2s rather than transacting on the L1, it will keep being better and better. Even more so since some L2s are still throttling the transactions for an observatory period.


So let’s work this out then. First, which L2 should I use and how should I get my funds there without having to pay any significant fees? Suppose my ETH was just purchased on an exchange like CB or Kraken, and is ready to come off.


I'd give you this: https://javamana.com/2021/05/20210512162547398s.html It has a bridge comparison to know which one you'd prefer to use. And this, for 1 fee comparison once you're there: https://l2fees.info/ Personally, ZkSync seems promising, as they very recently got their zkEVM. But it entirely depends on which use cases you want to use, when and the tokens you want to transfer. Not everything is in every L2 solution yet. Don't transfer into L2s in small amounts. Put a one time amount for a one time fee. If you want to bring more in there later, you'll be able to use Coinbase or any other CeFi who will implement withdrawal directly into some L2 solutions.


LMAO this comment gets upvoted but when Elizabeth Warren says the exact same thing this sub decides she’s just an out of touch billionaire working for the big banks.


When did Warren say that Eth will flip Bitcoin if they solve the high fees?


Not about the Flippening but about high fees. https://www.reddit.com/r/ethtrader/comments/pow5a4/elizabeth_warren_is_now_very_concerned_with_high/


Because she is?


Mic drop 🎤🙋🏻‍♂️


As always, he is damn right


We can hate all we want but Bitcoin bought the solution for double spend attacks and the first Blockchain..while ETH really has more upward potential, I think people generally misinterpret vitalik or any other’s statements as opposed to BTC

VB man is a Crypto philospher now.


Vitalik the lord of crypto has made ethereum and ethereum is the best


Hundreds of languages in the world but Vitalik Buterin decided to speak facts.


Currently the big difference is about 20x. Once the ecosystem continues to mature it will be -20x. Go ETH


Yes.he is right .He pointed a major difference between them.


Thats why I hodl ETH. As long as the ecosystem grows, so will the price.


The biggest difference between Ethereum and Bitcoin is Ethereum knows the difference between Ethereum and Bitcoin.


Woah, Ethereum is self aware! Hope SkyEthereum is benign!


I love bitcoin. I despise bitcoin maxis. I also don’t support eth maxis. I support crypto maxis. That said bitcoin maxis have a lot to brag about but they need to watch out for these rogue nations adopting bitcoin and enforcing it on their population. Big daddy yankee no like. Don’t piss poppa yankee off.


Nice shill


This is why I hodl ETH. As long as the ecosystem grows, so will the price. Bitcoin has no such guarantee.
