As I remain a HARSH critic and ever skeptic of the Crypto world, it is news like we see recently surrounding ETH that makes the hair on your neck stand on end. My mind is open (slightly) to the utility and application/employment of cryptocurrency into the global economy, having cautiously approached it over 10 years so as not to be bitten. Yet, when one sees Mt. Gox occur, ETH imploding and money vanishing into "wallets" never to be accessed again ($280,000,000+ is not chump change), one has to take heed.
Scares the crap out of me still.
ETH is done: https://techcrunch.com/2017/11/07/a-major-vulnerability-has-frozen-hundreds-of-millions-of-dollars-of-ethereum/http://www.businessinsider.com/ethereum-parity-wallet-hack-freeze-missing-code-2017-11
Incidents such as the above will cause setbacks in the crypto world as an already hesitant population hears of such occurrences.
Bitcoin appears to continue to be the unchallenged, reigning champion at the moment. Let's just tread with caution friends - nobody needs to get their wealth vaporized.
