Overheard on Twitter

Over on Twitter, here were the top tweets about Ethereum:

  • From TrustlessState:

    The only way and “Ethereum Killer” could actually kill Ethereum is by building a better ETH 2, and then using the ETH 1 state for account balances at Genesis. Which would mean no new tokens for VCs, which would invalidate the whole motivation behind the Ethereum killer anyways

  • From CyPhlux:

    Remember when the top 3 tokens were #btc #Ethereum #LTC ? What ever happened to LTC? The media and everything mainstream had the hots for all three.. Now the new 3rd asset isn’t even talked about. Infact its skipped over… Its like there’s an elephant in the room made of glass..

  • From TylerDurden:

    I’m sat in a coffee shop – reading and being nosey – and the guy on the table next to me is seemingly trying to convince his friend to buy Ethereum and Monero.If he mentions XRP I’ll step in.
