With the significant price drop in the entire crypto market many people have expressed their discouragement and dismay about the loss in value of DASH at this time. However there is an upside to this drop in price. The following is my opinion only and not intended as financial advice. When the DASH price was high real world users (not speculators) to the market were put off from buying DASH because of the high price. Now that the price has significantly fallen however those very same people now have a opportunity to buy DASH with considerably less risk. The other important factor consider is the large whale speculators that have millions to invest are currently sitting on the sidelines waiting for the bear market to end. In my opinion this is the ideal time for real world users however to enter the market. Millions of people in Venezuela could consider buying DASH with considerably less risk of significant decrease in prices, since a large amount of the price fall has already occurred. Yes, the price could fall further however with DASH we have the Masternodes that have collateral tied up with DASH and Masternodes do not tend to sell. This will add some stability to the price once the speculators have left. There are currently 4871 Active Masternodes currently according to https://www.dashninja.pl and 5005 if we also include the inactive Masternodes. Since the inactive masternodes have also not sold this gives a total of locked in DASH of: 5005 x1000 = 5005000 DASH locked up by masternodes and inactive masternodes According to coinmarketcap.com are 8,508,492 DASH coins available on the market. This would mean, under worse case scenario, even if everyone who does not own a masternode sells their DASH (which is very unlikely to happen) this would give a DASH base price of 37.64 USD (5005000/8508492 x 64) = 37.64 USD Since MNOs are investing for DASH for the long term this means my estimate for the worse possible case scenario for DASH to fall to around $40 USD . Once again I am stating this is not financial advice. It is just some approximate calculations showing that the rate of drop of price is likely to significantly slow down since it appears the worse of the fall may possibly be over. Provided the MNOs keep their masternodes and believe in DASH long term future new entrants to DASH have an opportunity to enter the market with a much smaller risk of loss due to speculative investors. This is exactly what we want. We want all the speculative investors to leave DASH so that the price stabilises at an affordable level for real world users e.g in Venezuela to start taking up DASH. I believe that the DASH price drop is very beneficial for real world users to start to take up DASH and for this reason I believe the price drop is one of the best things that could have happened for DASH for mass adoption in Venezuela. We are now at the point of DASH taking off in Venezuela with the large franchises like Church's chicken and Subway now accepting DASH, with the likelyhood that other big brands may also see the benefits that DASH is bringing to these businesses and feel encouraged to follow suite. It means that real world adopters that get on board now could well benefit from the DASH price rise later on. We need real world adopters and long term believers and investors (MN). We do not want speculators that can only cause wild fluctuations in price. If we also look at the charts at coin market cap you will see that after a huge drop in a cryptocurrency it enters a long period of a relatively stable price. After Mount Gox was hacked and the bitcoin price had fallen to around $200 the price stayed relatively stable around that value for around two years before it started rising again. this is exactly what we want. We do not want volatility. We want a stable price so that real world users can get on board now. In my opinion now could be one of the best times for real world adopters to get on board with DASH and that is how we build a stable currency.
