If eQSL is ever linked to a 'presige' certificate, that
award will loose its prestige. Of the electronic confirmation
systems, only LotW is secure and verifiable.
Yes, LotW can be "cheated" but it requires the agreement of
both stations to enter a falsified confirmation ... just as
it requires the agreement of both stations to create an
authentic "bad" QSL card. LotW does eliminate the "bad"
cards that come from busted calls and/or QSL managers who
write the wrong band on a card and eliminates the ability
of a station to get 160 Meter DXCC for contacts on 17 Meters.
LotW is "a good thing" and merits the support of every active
contester and DXer. Upload your logs whether you intend to
ever claim the credit yourself or not.
