A) This leads me to think there won't be thousands+% increase in the value like there was in Bitcoin in '13. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Does anyone plan on just purchasing Ether if they're not using it for contracts/etc?
I'm not a computer programmer but am absolutely fascinated with Ethereum, and absolutely understand the decentralization concept and think it's going to be the future. How can I participate if I'm not able to do programming, etc?
