Ushering in a real, coherent economy?
Feels like they should really be called Other Coins, not Alt Coins, since they’re all working together. each providing a unique function. We now have MaidSafeCoin, SafeExchangeCoin, and ProjectDecorumCoin. Seems like having a platform like the SAFE Network makes all other coins come smoothly along, relying on Safecoin’s Network, like silk.
It’s overwhelming to think about it right now, which is why I started this of course! Difficult to grasp what’s at work. I think one currency might not be more important than the other; but a certain syndrome of people’s perception will always have Safecoin valued more highly, it being “the first” one. There may be technical reasons for higher valuation to be true, even over a long period of time, but I’m no good at those.
Maybe people will look at it all one day, how complex yet smoothly the economy can run, and then try it out in the real world. It would be part of the world initially, but perhaps people may look at it as a successful model to ASAP then roll out (more?) tangible similarities. Maybe what doesn’t work today will simply melt away, that much more quickly.
