Sounds like the best strategy to me. I don’t have the time or the inclination to get into trading and feel that even if I tried it as a living, buying and holding would be the better strategy and that’s not including the opportunity cost of the income lost from not working. I’m invested because I’m optimistic by nature, probably naively so, and I’m a neophyte when it comes to understanding the tech, but also the challenges of what the Maidsafe team are taking on. That said, I think I’m a good judge of character and I have enormous trust and confidence in David and Nick, despite never having met them.
My own wild-eyed guess about price, is that there is massive risk/reward asymmetry, or in simpler terms the upside massively outweighs the downside. The reason I think this is that my (probably uninformed) view from listening to people who work in the crypto community but not for SAFE is that the vast majority are sceptical. Most people seem to believe that the only thing being delivered is promises. Jameson Lopp’s (who I respect) recent tweets are a typical example of this. So, if an anonymous, fully automated, P2P network is delivered I think it’s going to absolutely stun a lot of the people who work in and take an interest in these things, much less the world at large!
The rational thing to do as an investor when presented with this kind of asymmetry is to bet, and bet big. I don’t really think I’ve bet big, but I have enough of my net worth in maidsafe coin to make any self-respecting financial advisor have a heart attack, even though it’s only about 20% of my investable net worth and I do also plan on buying equity! And, if for whatever reason the network doesn’t work as planned there will be no tears from me and the much greater loss will obviously be felt in Troon.
