Better investment, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, or Ripple,It depends on your investment objectives and risk tolerance. If you are looking to just buy and hold one cryptocurrency, it should be Ethereum. I must warn you than holding Ethereum is not for the faint of heart. If you are the type to panic sell when you see your investments down 20–50% then it’s not for you. If you are going to quickly take profits, then it is also probably not for you. If you are looking to invest long-term and hold for at least a couple years then Ethereum could be one of the best investments you ever make.

Which one is the best cryptocurrency next to bitcoin?
If you are more risk averse you can go with Bitcoin or some combination of Bitcoin and Ethereum. Bitcoin is significantly less volatile but has less upside potential.
I would avoid Litecoin as a long-term investment. It has skyrocketed lately due to the recent implementation of Segregated Witness, but once Bitcoin solves it’s scaling issues there would be little reason to for anyone to use Litecoin. The network effect of cryptocurrency is very strong, and Litecoin is almost identical to Bitcoin but has far few users.
