Yes most definitely. Also something to consider is how many “crimes” having a secure system would be made impossible. If one used safecoin, or even bitcoin, would credit card theft or fraud be possible? You can’t steal or forge what you don’t use. If you used the safe network for secure identity verification would you use insecure IDs that could be stolen or forged? If you had all your info on the safe network would your institution have yards and yards of beaurocracy and administration or would you just exchange and or grant permissions, permissions that could later be revoked, with whomever needed access to particular bits of information? If you were a victim in danger or being abused or if you were observing said victimization and could anonymously request help, be it counseling, calling for a personal champion such as a friend or family member or other member of the community, or reporting it to some authority, would that not cut down on crime and offer greater protection? Even just something as simple as the ability of people to have new creative ways to address poverty would cut down on crime. How do we define crime? Would maidsafe not make many institutions irrelivent and therefore the laws that govern them obsolete?
