Is 2018 the Year of Bitcoin? Maybe not. Does Ethereum have too much of a head start in the smart contract development space? What about the scaling problem? Will the Lightning Network roll out in time, before competition swoops in to capture this market? Who stands to benefit from Bitcoin’s growing pains?

But since both blockchains use the same cross-platform coding syntax for smart contracts, competition could be fierce. Surely they can coexist, but either side could rise to be the standout winner of the decentralized software game.
