Just like DASH' announced it was going after the Marijuana industry Monero' is aiming at the music industry. This is a fundamental change and brings validity to monero'. Let's not forget that the music space is HUGE! Just look at how Apple' monetized on this market. Selling songs for 99cents and keeping 30% of the rake! OUCH if your a musician and that does not include the take your label gets. This is a game changer even more than Dash getting into the marijuana sector IMO'. Going back, Napster' changed the way we obtained music! Monero' I believe could be the same game changer!
Let's compare. Apple pays about 64 cents for every 100 streams on apple music. It's estimated that an artists gets about $0.005 cents per play or if someone buys the tune the artist (or rights holder) gets about $0.70. Now depending on whether they are under contract the artist ends up with about 10% of the total take. Of course the music industry is corrupt, but this could level the playing field for new artists. What if I sign a contract with my label that I keep 90% of the profits from all direct downloads from my site . You can see how this changes the game for musicians especially unsigned ones. Again cryptos taking out the middle man. LOVE IT!
But if you follow, I do not trade on news, I trade on charts and invest on fundamentals. The charts foresaw this "news" before the news was released, we spotted it and got in. That's how it's done! Now I couldn't believe that I was seeing on facebook and some of the blogs I follow that people were selling Monero at $235-$250 and stating it will pullback. HUH? Seriously? This is a fundamental game changer for this coin. I went ahead and added at $235 on the breakout, why would I sell here? Some are simply stupefied and narrow sighted. This has left many with sellers remorse, as Monero continues higher and it should!
If I have mentioned it once, I have mentioned it a hundred times. Most long term buy and hold investors outperform traders 90% of the time, and Monero' could not be a more perfect example.
This without a doubt a game changer not only for the music artists, but for Monero as well. Now don't expect DASH to lie down and take this easy. I believe they will want their piece of the pie and they are a beast. But there is room for both!
Meanwhile Charlie with LTC' is still in twittersverse. I look at there news release and it's "we hit an all time high". Maybe someone should have tweeted back that Monero is out performing you because you are acting like a child when you should be focused on growing and becoming a contender for specific markets. This is why you are under performing the market Charlie! And even though a rising tide raises all ships, yours will eventually sink if you do not grow up and take this seriously.
All in all I am not selling here, but will be looking for a pullback to add more. With DASH' trading around $750 I think Monero' should be valued around $450.
The game is changing and I want to be in aggressive marketing coins and Monero' has made the top 3 list for sure!
For the record I updated the count after looking at DASH's run.
