A store of value is very sensitive to sentiment. A real utility that knocks its competition out of the park is not. It doesn't matter how anyone feels about crypto if they just need to leave their pc on to get free access to censor resistance, efficiency, immutability, privacy.
While SAFE is still just speculation it will be volatile because it is priced in BTC. As soon as real safecoin launches it decouples from the whole ecosystem in many ways. Utilities are judged on their usefulness, not their industry's reputation or history. We don't need people to want to invest in SAFEcoin for it to rocket in value, we just need people to want to farm it and use it for free, the rest takes care of itself.
Personally I don't think you need to worry too much about the rest of this crypto bubble. If SAFE works as we hope the rest will fall into place imo.
