I don’t think anyone can accurately predict the market at this point. I think even the Safex team would agree that the future of Safex depends on the execution of the project.
IMHO, cryptocurrency will only continue to gain a foothold on global commerce. In the next few decades (if not years)((, barring some apocalyptic event that takes down the internet)), we will see fiat shrink to near extinction and crypto will take over. I would trust Bitcoin over Bank of America any day of the week. Then again, that’s probably because some teller at Bank of America can lie to me, the blockchain inherently can’t. That’s the beauty of the technology we’re dealing with here.
Re: valuation… Amazon just as one example in the market is valued at the time of this post at about $544 billion. If Safex had that market valuation, it would be over $200 a coin. Consider the facts that Amazon started a mere 20 years ago, and Safex has a lot of logistical and technical advantages over Amazon, especially as technology improves. Also consider the fact that Safex coins can be lost much like other crypto currencies (which will only deflate the value), and that Amazon has to adhere to certain legal restrictions that Safex couldn’t even if it wanted to.
Right now, Safex has value because (imho smart) people are buying into the idea.
If it’s done right, or in other words the project is executed well, the sky is the fucking limit.
I’ve personally looked at particl, syscoin, bitbay, openbazaar… none of these projects IMHO seem to “get it right”. Their market cap isn’t that far from Safex, relatively speaking. To reiterate though… it’s not the market cap that’s going to win, it’s the execution.
I’ve been a software developer for over 20 years, and my bet is on Safex.
