If people are getting wiser to the fact that MAID will not be based on blockchain consensus mechanisms, then MAID might not rise along with all of the alts above it which are based on it, until MAID proves itself more and more on its own merits.
It has hit 40 on Coinmarketcap, when it was at 30 not too long ago. I said it wouldn’t go to 100 like someone said, but there’s no ignoring the trend. (Not that it’s literally going that low.) And that trend is saying that it will continue to “stagnate” (that’s the word necessary for the description of MAID slipping on Coinmarketcap).
As @danski just said, even Alpha 2 might not do anything. It depends on how the updates are formulated, and if the right people take notice at the right time.
However, what I truly think will be good for MAID—besides Alpha 2, or particularly Data Chains, which will also be (more) important—is Testsafecoin (even more important!). Any one of these poignant developments will on one level or another cause Blockchain/Other funds to pour into MAID, bringing it to 20(?) or greater. (And in the top 5(?)-10 with Safecoin even moderately working.)
