    Bitcoin surge providing altcoin opportunities?

    Looks to me like altcoins are all falling right now. I'm guessing because people want to sell for bitcoin while it is climbing.

    Makes me feel like it may be a good time to invest in some of them.

    Im interested if anyone has any constructive thoughts on:

    Waves
    Stratis
    NEO

    I've been paying them some attention over the last couple months and feels like they are due to go up.

    Also might purchase some more Ripple.

    I'm a gambling man... why not?

    I like your attitude! I'll say this much: in the 'normal' crypto universe (basically, all of time until a couple days ago), when BTC spiked or crashed, the alts normally followed in the same direction, often moving even larger percentages up or down, starting on a slight delay.

    If that model holds, moving BTC to alts makes a ton of short term sense. But a reason to wonder if it will hold is that normally the alts wouldn't still be even/red vs USD 20 hours after bitcoin started a surge.

    Hell, I'm with ya -- I think it's probably a good bet; plus, I'm tired of doing nothing but selling today. I'm gonna go sniff some alts.

    I went with XRP. It's down 8% vs USD while BTC's up 15%, so a pretty solid exchange.

    I split 1 BTC Between all 4 of them and a tiny bit of OMG for fun. I think (hope) they have all just bottomed out for the short term.

    Good luck to us

    Gotta agree with waves, hopefully their deployment of smart contracts and their upgrade to NG goes well. 1k transactions per second will be very nice, especially considering how cheap transactions are on there.
