    Theres a article in wired about a new cryptocurrency called Ethers which aims to create a decentralized
    web infrastructure with a new blockchain like the Bitcoin blockchain. The Ethereum blockchain supports
    programming languages such as C++, Javascript, and Python. Apparently anything that you can do on
    a server you can do on the Ethereum blockchain - instead of making calls to a server it would be making
    calls to the blockchain. The project just raised $15 million worth of bitcoins, people traded the bitcoin for ethers. Ethers are necessary in order to use the ethereum blockchain. This is one to watch I think.

    It's ridiculous. First prove yourself then get funding from the community. They might already be in hawaii or some carribean island.

    Exactly and who cares if it succeeds or not now as the founders have already made bank as well as holding the largest majority of ethers.

    Anyway, ethereum has already been forked. Its called æthereum, it has all the same functionality as ethereum without the initial uneven distribution of app tokens.

    No, i dont think you are right... basically i do not feel there is enough argument to prove that ethereum is doing good!

    Ethereum is a unique alternative, and it does bring alot of utility to the table.

    At least it isn't just another BTC or LTC clone.

    It has it's own blockchain and a truckload of other unique features.

    I wouldn't say that it is "better" than bitcoin - but it is a useful alternative
