Hi guys. I’m getting frustrated and i need some advice. I’m trying to build a monetary system that works for the people. I’ve already built a prototype (browser extension) but i want to move forward. Ethereum is the obvious choice, but it still sucks. It’s full of bugs, the docs are out-dated, and it already takes a loooong time for the wallet to download all of the transactions. Sure, users can download a ‘light’ version, but that kinda defeats the object.
Now, i’m still trying to get my head around Maidsafe. What’s the deal with smart contracts? If a contract was made that involved two parties, and it was cryptographically signed by both parties, then you wouldn’t be able to change the contents, as it wouldn’t match the contents that were signed for. And both parties would have a copy of the contract. Is that not enough? Does anyone have any suggestions about this?
My second question is, how feasible would it be to use a browser extension with maidsafe? Will the api allow me to read and write data to a db stored on the safe network? Is this something i can play around with now?
I’ve mentioned this before, but i think my app could be very useful to the safe network as it’s a content voting/crediting system that uses public profiles for establishing trust etc. It would make a very efficient search engine. Attached is a screenshot. There are other tabs where you can register/login, create keys, send credits etc
