Interesting sidebar: ECDSA nonces were one of the sources of Bitcoin's
transaction malleability. The (massive pile of hacks that is) segregated
witness feature being added to Bitcoin has an added side effect of removing
signatures from the hash of a transaction, and with it the associated
malleability.

All that said, if you're designing a new system today, pick Ed25519.
