MaidSafeCoin (MAID) - Price & Trading topic


#2478

What do you think is better to hold, PDC or MAID?


#2479

200K Euros or Maids? You got a screen shot?


#2480

I hold MAID for my belief in the SAFE network.
I also hold PDC for my belief in the need for a social network on top of any network, including SAFE. Both.


#2481

200k Maids…

Yep:


#2482

Thank you. :slight_smile:

That’s a lot. Someone who believes the alpha2 announcement is already proved in?


#2483

Seems an odd time to cash out with the release coming today, but then they might want to get in to USDT to avoid any further btc drops…?


#2484

MAID seems to be holding up quite well price wise in the face of the bitcoin fall… And what a lovely fall, may it continue.

Edit: Famous last words.


#2485

Place your bet, how far up does it go once alpha2 hit before settling down?

  • It sink!
  • Stays about the same.
  • 0.00018 sat
  • 0.00020 sat
  • 0.00025 sat
  • 0.00030 sat
  • 0.00040 sat
  • To the moon and beyond!

Fall is not an option?


#2487

Could probably have done with an option between “same” and 20!

Any longer and we’ll be at 12 too.


#2488

there there, added a few option.

oops it reset all votes when I do that, vote again people.

EDIT oops It sink takes an ‘s’, i’m scared to fix it. I don’t want to reset again…


#2489

pump-n-dump but a small one.

they simply bought during the last few weeks at the times while the maid/btc price was low which helped raise the price. Then at/after announcement they sell and take profits to do the same thing in another market


#2490

I wasn’t expecting a huge bump straight away, but didn’t expect the opposite. Let’s see how it pans out over the weekend.


#2491

Seriously Alpha 2 had no effect on price!!!


#2492

Speculation money flies in and out, but investment money moves much more slowly. I was not expecting loads of speculators to suddenly jump in for alpha 2, we’re still a fair way from testsafecoin which is all they’ll care about I’m sure.

If there are more press releases then we might see a gradual increase in volume and demand over the next few weeks. It’s still a bit early to say imo. New investment money often has to do its DD and then go through the processes of ‘buying’. Sudden spikes are rarely very long-lived, better to create new interest and investors than just excite the current crowd temporarily I reckon.


#2493

So just checking the price now. Alpha2 was a typical buy the rumor sell the news apparently ?
Was there any press release ? No buzz at all ?


#2494

Few seemed to buy the rumour and there was no news released to sell on. All a bit of a damp squib, really. Given functionality was similar to test 19, I am wondering what the motivation around alpha 2 was, if not to shout about the milestone being reached?

Surely, these sort of alpha events should be celebrated, bringing renewed enthusiasm and faces into the community? I wasn’t expecting massive fireworks, but I was expecting something.

Edit: typos!


#2495

Albeit a minor one. We’ve seen huge ones for announcements. Near doubling in price then big dumps a couple years ago.

The whales were more likely worried about BTC then to try and pump a under hyped alpha release

The forum made plenty of buzz for weeks and the announcement in the previous dev update saw the price rise a little IIRC and the pump-n-dumper had probably bought prior to that so the dump as little as it was made them some profit.

Its a network that will remain running even when later testnets are running. Its for developers to have a stable platform to develop against.

In my opinion it will be alpha 4 and later that will see more of this. Should have vaults at home in alpha 4.


#2496

To me alpha 2 makes alpha 4 more of a reality, seeing as it’s a full-blown release with confidence and major working parts. Maybe it just means A3 will be more of a hit, being that much closer. If it isn’t… well, tough on people not buying in. It’s all mostly whales’ games, anyway.


#2497

I may be wrong but Alpha 4 is the integration of 2 and 3 plus running home vaults. To me Alpha 3 is the key as we should learn if Safenet is actually safe. If it is, then the project will have a huge layer if remaining risk removed. There should be price movements after this. Having said that, if you bought at ICO time, you should already be smiling​:smiley::joy:
