So as I was reading through Rabbits vs. Turtles I started thinking about apps and their data usage.
Will apps be required to buy storage to store a users application data as that data gets larger or will the user’s app data be counted against the app user’s available storage amount?
It would seem right to me (as a classic web dev) that we don’t want to make it hard for developers to get started when they are building apps (ie perhaps their free space or other free space up to some amount). Then when the app is large enough (using more storage) we will want to have them purchase more space to handle the load of their app or require the users of the apps to use their own storage allotment.
As I understand things, the more an app is used, the more micro payments or app charges they might receive so this will/should play into things as well. Having enough farmers to handle all this data will be a HUGE deal. Incentivizing farmers will be a HUGE deal. Incentivizing builders with good ROI will be a HUGE deal. Incentivizing users with great apps will be a HUGE deal… I’m noticing a pattern here.
I’ve read through the blog post “The Economics of Safecoin” but have not read all the posts on this forum so maybe this has already been talked about. I’m really excited to help make this work and wondering what others are thinking about app data…
