    "Technically Kraken isn't a site in and of itself, but instead an iOS app. Additionally, it advertises itself mostly as a Bitcoin trading platform, though it also states that it works with "other math-based currencies." Unfortunately, it does not specify which other "math-based currencies." Maybe Ethereum is one of them, maybe it's not. I'm seeing mention of Litecoin and Dogecoin in a screenshot, but nowhere on the page do I see mention of Ethereum."

    "I think it's fair to say this website is good enough if i wanna buy Ethereum or bitcoin but in case i wanna buy litecoin, dash, or other crypto-currencies it's not convient that me as a customer to visit other sites to make that purchase, because i might ended up using the website where i can find the most crypto-currencies. I did not see anything about affiliate marketing. That alone could be a huge boost in sales for the company and for the customer all based on commissions. Overall 2 There is nothing different than the other sites, and it says very little about Ethereum on the front page "

    "I gave Dent a try to see what all the hype was about. I don't know...the whole thing seems a bit too confusing for me. You can bid on mobile data and the prices are transparent, which is a plus, but having to use Dent tokens is as confusing to me as BitCoins. Not sure I'd recommend this to the average person."
