What is the Vision & Value of LeoFinance and the LEO Token In 5 Years?

In the last LEO Roundtable, we did a walkthrough of the numbers of LeoFinance to breakdown the various aspects of the community and look at it as a business.

In doing this, we came up with a valuation for LeoFinance as a company and also projected the future potential value of the LEO token given a set growth rate and a given timeframe. The primary example we used is a 5 year timeframe and an average of a doubling in the # of users per year.

Given how small LeoFinance is today, a doubling in users each year is not a hard target to reach. For example, we’ve more than doubled the number of users that interact with LeoFinance just in the past few months.

We also used some more conservative numbers in terms of current total users, etc. At the end of the day, I think the target token price of ~$0.60 over the next 5 years is extremely achievable and the growth rate of doubling our users each year (and probably even more than that) is something that we will continually focus on as well.

With all this said, we talked about how Hive plays a role in the growth of LeoFinance and vice versa. As more people use Hive, more people will likely stumble upon LeoFinance since we occupy space on Hive in terms of our applications (like Hivestats.io) and also in terms of our community and the content created by everyone actively participating in it. In turn, LeoFinance also contributes to the growth of Hive as every new LeoFinance user is automatically a user of Hive as well.

The math gets interesting when you realize how small LEO is today and how much potential it has to grow in the future when extrapolating prior performance.

Having those lite accounts with escrow is going to be huge, you can then seriously start poaching medium for authors, tons of cool crypto authors on there and if we can get them in easily, reward them, get them to leverage their medium audiences to improve ad revenue, you've got something big here.

Yeah, that would be a huge opportunity, we tried with Seeking Alpha, but the focus should be authors in the crypro space.

hmmm...i like those excel calculations. But....it is a bit to conservative for me

Posted Using LeoFinance

Yeah I agree, they are on the side of a conservative estimate (even though it's 10x over 5 years).. This is tech and even more so; this is crypto. The potential is hard to quantify

Posted Using LeoFinance

I'm long-term bullish on LEO

Keep up the good work team :)

Appreciate it Nathan! Keep up the good work as well ;)

Wouldn’t it wouldn’t it be more accurate to speak in terms of Hive?

I personally think the price of Hive is too volatile, in addition, I can relate to the USD much quicker.

Posted Using LeoFinance

Yep, as Rolland said, Hive is a volatile metric to place it against. None of us know what HIVE will be worth 5 years from now, so it could skew our numbers quite a bit.

This way, we can evaluate LEO on it's own merits

While converting Leo to Hive and then to LTC or BTC is a little frustrating, I actually prefer Leo to Hive right now.

It fits with what I tend to focus on (money, getting out of debt, investing) while keeping some level of focus on crypto which has taken a bit of a backseat for me at the moment.

The community does seem a little small right now. And engagement isn't very high. But hopefully we can change that. I like what we have here, so seeing some growth in this community would be great.

I certainly won't be stopping my content creation here.

Happy to hear it. We're going to keep pushing forward for more engagement and activity in the community as a whole. The latest stats have been continually trending up, so we're on the right track.

Now we just need to keep pushing forward on our developments and growth efforts. I think the team is doing a great job and we've got a very solid roadmap for the rest of 2020.
