The Maidsafe price has not been discussed recently but as we reach testnets and visibility is gaining, i think investors (especially long term holders) would love if they are being rewarded for supporting this project from economic standpoint as well. No harm in it : )
I think the maidsafe price will adjust accordingly with demand and all long term holders will be rewarded well. However, I also really like Radix DLT concept. It is another venture run by a UK based firm launching soon after 6-7 years of R&D. Their idea is to keep the price of coin constant/consistent so the price of service is controlled. As the value of network increases, they will give corresponding additional coins to existing holders so the total value of their holdings increase even if the price of the coin is consistent/maintained. I am not sure of MAIDSAFE coin pricing algo but hope holders will be rewarded as network increases in prominence.
I havent posted in a while but have been watching the progress. Great work by Maidsafe team!!
