I really don’t think fct and maid can/should be compared in any way personally. I would not look to fct for insight into the path maid might take. Being bullish and going up is where the comparison needs to end really.
The second the world believes/knows/understands maidsafe have done ‘it’ and there is an operational and robust network, the world has changed forever.
Factom, on the other hand, are just making practical use of blockchain tech and they can do it now - even though they could also explode if they get a few big clients. Their rise was and will be very different from SAFE, which should really go completely crazy once a real network is live and proving itself robust, but until then has no real reason to jump by a factor of 4 or 5. Post launch 10x should be very fast imo, even 100x market cap from here to half the size of btc should be pretty damn fast really. It’s apples and oranges though isn’t it? I don’t think there are any fundamental similarities between the two projects so if their trends look similar I’d say any correlation is coincidental and unlikely to continue.
Just my 2 cents ofc. I’d love maid to go 5-10x pre launch just with excitement, but I don’t see it happening until real safecoin is live myself… then we will all have the rug pulled out from under us in the EPIC upswing that follows.
