Dude, I am glad you are so enthusiastic about MaidSafe, and yes you would be right to consider ICOs finicky, scammy and filled with gimmicks. And if projects are legitimate, they need to mature and be tested in the real world.
Having that said, I have been around the cryptoworld since the very early days, and there have been only two technologies that I’ve been evangelizing, first it was bitcoins and now it is MaidSafe’s SafeNetwork, you don’t need to remind me how revolutionary the SafeNetwork is, I was at the IPO.
But the key to any investment success is to properly be able to analyze the playing field, anticipating to risks and threats especially in technology endeavors.
You see, historically not always the best technology won, it is really a pity, and that almost always happened because these companies failed to understand the difference between a technology and a product.
99% of the projects out there that are being ICOed are pure shit, and it is easy to fall into the trap of being dismissive of any other technology generalizing that everything based on
blockchain is never gonna be comparable to the SafeNetwork.
Which most likely will be true, but underestimating that an inferior and yet “good enough” product could manage to own a sizable percentage of the marketshare is a fatal flaw.
Also, if you read the documents of Dfinity you can see it is not a typical hack such as Storj, Sia or whatever is out there.
And I mentioned, I know some of the team members of Dfinity first hand so I know that this team will deliver.
Don’t let your fanaticism cloud your analytic mindset.
Dfinity will release next year, and MaidSafe should be getting to a beta version by next year as well, otherwise it will be a shame to see another project to steal MaidSafe’s thunder.
