Consider the hypothetical situation in which after release SafeCoin threatens to overtake Bitcoin’s position as the number one crypto-currency. With SafeCoin’s superior feature list and a higher market capital, I think Bitcoin’s value would eventually suffer severely from the status loss.
Undoubtetly there would be Bitcoin evangelists with vast capital in Bitcoin who missed the SafeCoin boat who would feel severely treatened by the rise of SafeCoin. Do you think it could unleash a crypto-currency war where such people would use their capital and tech skills to try to disrupt SafeCoin’s market? Perhaps by inducing volatility in the SafeCoin market, or DDOSing/cracking SafeCoin<->Fiat exchanges? I believe that could really hurt both SAFE and the crypto-currencies phenomenon in general, and I can’t think of anything we might do to counter such efforts.
