My take is that regardless of what btc does in the short term, there are very likely a good number of alts which will do better than Maid in the next few months and they’re what I’m betting (being the operative word) on, in the hope some of them pop and enable me to buy more Maid than I would otherwise have. Reallocation of funds to a basket of more promising short term coins, basically. But always with more Maid as the end game. So I don’t mind what happens to maid or btc as long as the basket equals or betters Maid, which shouldn’t be too tricky if you believe like me that Maid-specific pumps are much less likely in the current environment (maid entering its next long quiet phase of development, crypto mania continuing to spread elsewhere).
Note I am not criticising Maidsafe or the pace of progress at all, just assessing the dev cycle / roadmap and it’s possible effect on price. When it’s ready, it’s ready, and I hope to max my stack in the meantime.
Any thoughts on my thoughts warmly welcomed!
(My characterisation of “long quiet phase” may be oversimplified or just plain wrong, especially given the new marketing hire, but I think most would agree that Alpha 3 is not coming out next week, nor are we likely to be surprised by a barrage of tier 1 PR in the near term)
