LISK HOLDS THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES OVER ETHERIUM:
The above argument eliminates this so called advantage of lisk
Single hash generated vs. trillions of valid but discarded hashes generated to secure blockchain in one blocktime
Makes no sense at all
I’ve explained this several times. Churning out trillions of wasted hashes means lots of wasted electricity - like literally a nuclear powerplant’s worth for Bitcoin - and is an ever-growing financial overhead that will ultimately kill the coin.
Cooperative, efficient blockchain generation vs. competitive, wasteful blockchain generation
looks like the same as above
No, it’s the key reason Lisk can run on a $9 CHIP computer and Ethereum can’t. Economies of scale hugely favor Lisk over BTC/ETH.
Stable roundtable clockwork forging vs. unsustainable, exponentially growing free-for-all mining
Forging is no different than mining … just different ways to make the currency
It is so sad to see people that don’t understand enough math to get why exponential growth is unsustainable, or why a stable system is different and better from an unstable one.
Dapps on individual sidechains vs. dapps on bloated mainchain
Ethereum dapps are also sidechains … lol … you seem to be uninformed
The Ethereum Guide says its dapps are deployed on the mainchain ( https://gavofyork.gitbooks.io/turboethereum/content/dapps_deployment.html ). Practically, in Ethereum dapps are just specialized “contracts”. There’s my showdown cards in this poker hand - what’s your counter-reference to prove what you are saying about Ethereum sidechains? Prove to me that each dapp in Ethereum has its own separate blockchain as they do in Lisk.
Min of 2-4 to max of 101 cheap $35 Pi2 / $9 CHIP microcomputers needed for each sidechain backbone vs. large, unlimited numbers of expensive GPU systems needed for mainchain backbone
The GPU rings will not be used once POS for eth sets in
So…PoS for ETH is vaporware, got it. How can you know that Eth PoS will run on microcomputers like Lisk does if ETH PoS finally shows up? What happens to all those sad little GPU miners whose income stream will be cut off?
Sidechain dapps permanently free vs. mainchain perpetual “gas” payments required
Ah … What can possibly be the use of the beloved LISK then …
What part of “free” vs. “paying for ETH gas” is so hard to understand? Free is better. Lisk is still the exchange coin of choice within the dapp itself.
