So I’ve been trying to think about websites/webapps that would be nice to make on the SAFE network, and in doing so I’ve found myself wondering about data ownership.
If for example, you were making a simple website where people post images and text would they upload it to your site’s storage, or would they upload it to their own storage, and link it to the site?
The first option is the most convenient one for the user, I would say, in most situations, but maybe if you were making a sort of YT replacement, it might be nice to have the video always be the users data, instead of the site’s data.
The only thing that seems like it could be a downside is relating to Safecoin. In the situations where the user is hosting their own data, they must pay Safecoin. Now, I’m sure this could be automated in many circumstances, but what concerns me is how fast could an average user generate safecoin, and how much data usage would they get per coin?
Something that I think would suck is if during your normal usage at some point you get hit with a “you don’t have enough funds in your safecoin account to post that image on this website” message.
Is this simply something that’s going to get worked out in one of the testnetworks when safecoin goes into beta, or is there already some kind of vision for how this will work?
