Personal list about blockchains

A developer view.

From Good to Databases.

All opinions are personal.

Good

- Bitcoin

For both payments and OP_RETURN based use cases, Bitcoin gets the top place. It has the most hashrate (security/immutability). It is easy to develop on. You can inspect the chain and validate scripts easily. You can build a lot of cool stuff on top of OP_RETURN (have a think about this). Bitcoin is a real blockchain. The asset is the strongest amongst all the other. You can use payment channels to get around high fees. If you think you need a "layer 2" option now, you can use a second chain (LTC/BCH for example or a non-pow one, depending on the use cases). You can do cross chain atomic swaps (lower fees / faster transactions).

I'm not a big fan of LN as it stands currently. I think it will need a lot of time/development to be usable. I suggest to base your solution on payment channels if you were thinking about LN.

Good-ish

- Ethereum

- Rootstock

Ethereum is powerful as it gained a lot of traction, it's not simple and straightfoward as Bitcoin is (thanks Satoshi), but it's good as it's PoW and a lot of nice development is going in and around it.

Somewhat Good

- LTC

- BCH

- BSV

- DOGE

At least are bitcoin forks, they're PoW, if you learn development in these you can apply it to BTC Plus:

- Ethereum Classic

Of course!

Privacy coins

- Monero

- Zcash

Networks

  • Cosmos/Tendermint/Lotion.js
  • Polkadot/Substrate
  • PoA network (xDai Bridge)

Networks are interesting, I believe we'll see some nice networks or peg-chains

Peg Chains

  • Rootstock (had to re-mention it again)
  • Liquid

Look "ok" to me

  • Dash

  • NANO

  • Eth based tokens

(I would put all the top ERC20 tokens in this bucket here)

Databases and "no comment"

  • DIY Blockchain/Hashchain/Naivechain

  • Stellar

  • R3 Corda (at least they're honest, DLT, not a blockchain)

  • Hyperledger Fabric

  • EOS/IOTA/Ripple/the rest (no, not Tron, thanks :))


That's my own opinion, please don't bash me :)

Also I don't know many coins I just focus and hava an opinion about the few top ones.

Thanks for reading, hope you have a similar view to mine, especially if you are a developer and tried some of these blockchains.
