That’s not how pricing works. Use cases != market cap. Water is more useful than gold, but gold is worth far more. Price is dictated by supply and demand and is also speculative in nature. Maid has a much higher supply than bitcoin: with equal demand you can expect prices per maid to be 204 times less than bitcoin, e.g bitcoin at $20k equals maid at $98.
A big misconception in crypto is that technology = value. This is completely false and goes back to what I just said about supply/demand. You can have the best technology the world has ever seen, but with no demand it remains worthless (from a financial perspective). A large market cap in and of itself is a value property of bitcoin which is hard to compete with. High market cap is what allows larger investors to place and move funds through the system. That in and of itself creates value.
The network effect is to a large extend what creates demand, but there can be speculative demand as well. Maid has been benefiting from speculative demand, we speculate that maid will release a product in the future. Maid at this point is simply a token on the omni network and far inferior to bitcoin in every aspect.
All previous attempts at creating decentralized networks, such as freenet has more or less failed in their attempt to attract mainstream usage and maid is at very high risk of ending up with similar lack of usage. I believe maid will be far more successful than freenet to gain traction, but the reality is that decentralized solutions comes with certain disadvantages that centralized solutions avoid. Those problems could make it hard to attract the mainstream type of users who don’t give a rats ass about privacy or owning their own data. Point is: It won’t help with a ton of use cases if nobody is using them.
Yes, and it’s all more or less guesses. No conrete info has been presented yet as to the emission schedule we can expect. Needless to say, 10% is a very small amount of total supply, will more usage make up for the new coins? Maybe, that’s pure speculation at this point.
Regarding “burning of coins”, isn’t that actually just a transfer of wealth from the person who does the PUT, to the host ?
