Poor return on investment? I think u need to do some lookin November 2015 dash 2 bucks now 450. Growth of like 22500%.
Btc was about 350 now 7800 ish. Growth of like 2500%.
Would u rather had bought 1 btc or 150 dash in November of 2015?
I’d take the 150 dash.
The ROI I represent is the one that all miners will have to face as the hashrate goes up along with the difficulty. As stated and calculated before, DASH difficulty rises at a rate 4 times faster than bitcoin for every arbitrary hashrate added to the system. In other words, if price was equal for DASH and Bitcoin and so were their short term profits, DASH would require 4 times less network hashrate. Less hashrate means less decentralization. Less decentralization means more centralization of power. More centralization means less miners. Less miners (and less hashrate) means you can upgrade the system all you want, but you will never scale to replace everyday transactions (which is why investors are sitting on bitcoins and DASH is simply siphoning off of its success).
So yes, for those who buy the cryptocurrency, good job, they win a lot of money. For those who invested into the infrastructure required for the network to really take off? They can go fuck themselves apparently, because only people who got in early on DASH are winning, not people who invest in trying to make it a truly decentralized system.
