    Reading up on some articles and found an article about JP Morgan taking a crack at their own cryptocurrency, somewhat old news but still could be big. What does this world think? will this take off or is there another coin that can stand by the likes of bit and lite?

    No. Traditional crypto's have thrived because they are decentralized.. If there was a company to issue coins, manipulate money supply and the public ledger... Only a fool would buy into that. At least you know what you are getting into with bitcoins, as they are coded to be deflationary.

    Thats exactly what i was thinking, it sort of defeats the whole crypto purpose, but then again i feel the normal investor whos not into bit and such now could be drawn to it's "professionalism" and held away from the more decentralized currencies.

    They might actually succeed on that one, because they have the power to make it easier to cash in/out.
    E.q. if people could buy Bitcoin with their credit card, there would be a massive inflow of new users.

    I think Vertcoin has a good chance of being the next big coin.
    With Scrypt-Asics coming out, and the litecoin dev most likely not
    planning on switching the algo, Scrypt-N and Scrypt-Jane will be where
    the GPU miner run to.

    Vertcoin has openly stated its intention to keep it decentralized,
    pushing for a hard fork if necessary when scrypt-n asics are announced.
