On a more serious note as others have pointed out, just because it already exists doesn't mean that you can't profit from it (depending on your definition of profit). Simply seeing the project through to completion can score you net gains is two areas:

  1. You learnt something
  2. You beat everyone else who gave up because a competitor already exists

I mean how will it look to folks if you give up because you have competitors?

You don't have to monetise everything
