MaidSafeCoin (MAID) - Price & Trading topic (Part 1)

8 or 9 cents is my guess :slight_smile: . Prepare your wallet :smiley: .

My thoughts on the crash…

Bring on Alpha 3…and maybe ummm Bittrex International :wink:

… I just cannot believe the attitude of some people I know. Doesn’t anyone know proof by induction? Is it not on the UK syllabus anymore?

From my point of view technologically SAFEnetwork is inevitable. It will be delivered successfully.

Global politics is another, and… Damn, global govs are so slow.

Well waiting for alpha 3 we do have to bet on prices.

We should all put 100 Maid on the table and guess what will be the rate December 31st.

Winner takes it all.

Mr swissprivatebanker. :slight_smile:

I’m partly counting on you to pick up business from the rest of us noob’s here, when it comes to independent financial matters.

I remember there was an end of 2018 price prediction topic on the old Maidsafe Reddit. Lowest guess was a bit over $3. I think most have learnt their lessons when trying to anticipate, well, anything crypto :laughing:

Getting ready to back up the truck for my seasonal present to myself. Thanks to this swoon, I will hit my target holding after almost 5 years of accumulation. Best of the season to everyone.

I’m not so sure how that will affect the price though. I have foolishly bought into MAID a couple of times before or during earlier releases, like Alpha 2 and PARSEC, just to find out the price went down soon after. I think that may well happen again. There has been an upward trend recently, which I think has been in anticipation of Alpha 3, but it has been shadowed by the collapse of bitcoin now.

I don’t think Alpha 3 is much of selling point outside of this community. If I understand it right, it is just about getting part of the system work, but there isn’t anything that is actually useful to anybody. So is it something that would get more people to buy MAID? Who are these people that are supposed to buy? How many of them are there?

I would be very happy to be proven wrong though.

I think its the most usefull part of the whole network as David stated.

Hopefully before long, you’ll be very, very happy. From the MAID price perspective, Alpha 3 should, at the very least, mean people won’t hurry to sell MAID at every BTC dip, as they should feel more confident about the progress.

You also need to realize there are people following this journey and even reading this board without ever contributing or engaging. It’s not necessarily this community only. It’s plenty of people who have been rather passively following this project since the ICO.

Love that last paragraph :slight_smile:

I agree with @Toivo re little price action, the ‘Bring on Alpha 3’ was in my best William Wallace war cry!

Development targets are what I celebrate, price sorts itself if the mission gets completed as intended.

Yes, I’m in this for the long perspective and not so much concerned about every price movement. I have just been thinking during the releases that “now this going to be a clear step up in the long term price”, just to find out that has not been the case - yet.

I don’t know what kind of MAID owners make these price movements? Are they naive small investors like me, who genuinely believe the next release is going to change something in the price of the coin? Or are they more of a loaded and experienced investors playing the “buy the rumours, sell the news” game?

Anyway I’m happy of having contributed my small money in the benefit of this project, however it turns out to become. It is a vision worth pursuing and supporting with whatever you have.

So how can I use it and for what?

EDIT:

I have the view that most “anybody” can do with the Alpha 3 is setup a routing node and this way donate resources to run the Alpha 3. Nothing more. I might be wrong here.

Alpha 3 (Fleming) is going to be:

“Secure Autonomous Network: an autonomous secure routing layer that will see the network architecture becoming more decentralised, enabling users to run routing nodes and providing secure transient data in the process”

What does that “… and providing secure transient data in the process” mean? Does it mean that users can provide transient data, such as some kind of messages? If so, that is exciting and more than I expected. And if that is open to people outside this forum, I would expect some price action too.

We’ll see…

Must be a potpourri of people and interests. It’s like asking who keeps the price where it’s at. I know for a fact there still are people left who never uttered a word on here, never really talk about MAID – and they sound very skeptical whenever they do – and yet they still keep their ICO MAID in hundreds of thousands. Partly because it cost them little to begin with, partly because there is this tiny voice inside their head that tells them “keep doubting but never sell!”

There is a polar opposite to every extreme, so there must be small fish guys who are full of optimism, they trust this project and yet they panic-sell whenever a downswing comes.

This is what David said:

So it provides the secure and decentralised backbone of the network. I think you can’t “use” it for something. Its just part of how the network works.

The safe network will definitely be able to route messages. There is already an email app on the test net, but we will see if/when realtime messaging becomes possible. The possibilities for this project, to put it mildly are very exciting.

The thing is that the Crust test was something of an event to me, because I was able to at least:

  1. Connect to others directly
  2. Watch from dashboard how the test goes
  3. Invent a funny username for myself
  4. Show these things to someone else

Is there anything I can do with the Alpha3? It would be cool to be able to do something, that would showcase in a tangible way what this Alpha 3 is about. Maybe some kind of dashboard, or anything at all. Or is it just that I have computer running and “I guess something happens there…”

@dask Yes, I know of those and I have checked out a couple of Safe sites sometimes. But the Crust test was the first actually decentralized thing I myself participated. The test net is not that exciting as it runs on some server somewhere.

Fair enough. Depending on how long you’ve been following, you may not have participated in the last Vault test which was decentralized and demonstrated that data storage works.

I imagine there will be some sort of dashboard for alpha3, but the exciting bit will be knowing that your vault is actually doing the routing and that you are connecting to a decentralized network. Otherwise I imagine it will look like it does now, just with vastly different plumbing under the hood.
