Here is a reply on the Alex Fortin blog about $600 price prediction on Maid:

$600 for Maidsafe in a few years? That would give the company a market cap of $271,531,447,200. That’s a bigger market cap than General Electric, AT&T, Alibaba, Procter and Gamble, Visa, and Wal-mart. Do you think you’re being a little ambitious?

Firstly don’t forget the S-curve in supply (it’s not likely to get much over 3.5bn coins) and the fact that safecoins are burned/destroyed when used, then farmed anew with a higher velocity of money and utility than anything we’re used to in crypto – you HAVE to burn safecoins to store or serve data on the network, only surfing is free.
Secondly, even at your estimate that’s under 1/3 of a trillion. If SAFE Network is really successful it could do a hell of a lot more than that given the number of areas it excels in – black market ($10 trillion), internet ($15+ trillion), IoT (predicted over $7 trillion by 2020 and $20 trillion by 2027, gold and silver ($8 trillion), serving the unbanked, remittances etc ad nauseum.
Really, there is no limit to the potential for a secure, private, censorship resistant network (real digital freedom) that monetises spare resources, scales positively, and provides free infrastructure for developers, along with a coin that has intrinsic value to store and serve data securely, can be sent instantly with zero fees, no PoW, private by default, capped supply, huge utility demand blah blah blah..
Really, if it became very popular and worked exactly as described with no compromises made to the functionality it promises, then I think in the long term MAID/SAFEcoin could even dwarf that prediction – crazy as that may sound to the uninitiated. It can also do the smart contracts of Eth, but it scales, so if you like Eth potential and you like upside and the chance to make crazy returns then you should like MAID. It is by far and away my favourite pick and biggest hold in crypto, I have sold almost all my Eth in this recent bump . Sell optimism, buy fear and uncertainty.
My big pics for ROI in 2017/2018 are MAIDSAFE and PDC/Decorum.
I’ll be returning to quote myself here at some point with some numbers to show how right I was ;-p
