    "I'm honestly suspicious of Litecoin. Yet another cryptocurrency, Litecoin lacks the popular usage of Etherium or Bitcoin, rendering it somewhat useless for anything other than speculation. If you want to make anonymous and instant transactions, you really should stick to ETH or BTC. In my own experience, I ended up converting everything to BTC anyway, so what was the point?"

    "This is an OK alternative, though not the best cryptocurrency out there. I would tend to look at Ripple as the other currency poised to take off."

    "It's another one of many cryptocurrencies, and they are really hard to tell and understand what will become a popular and widely used currency, without reading the whitepapers your self and seeing if you believe it will do good. This appears to have a chance at becoming popular, but it's really hard to tell, as many other people have to take notice and start using it as well for it to become more popular. I guess I would recommend this one, however I would note to take caution, as it's a really unstable market. Cryptocurrencies are like the stock market."

    "I am unsure if NEO is a good alternative for Monero. With the current landscape of cryptocurrencies, it's hard to determine which ones will succeed and which ones will fail. NEO looks like a promising option for future, with a focus on a smart economy, however, with anything cryptocurrency related I wouldn't invest more than you are willing to lose."
