@dallyshalla This is an interesting thought experiment, but I don’t think it has any substance.
Safecoin is paid at the GET. Okay, but what is it paid FOR?
It’s paid for participating in the network as a full node, including storing, caching, monitoring, verifying, securing, etc, There is no way to differentiate which is being rewarded, because to get paid the node has to do it all. If it fails in any particular, its ability to earn is lessened.
In the future there may be additional resource contributions which can be rewarded separately, such as computation, connection bandwidth, etc., but those will have to be separately metered as contribution will not be uniform. In other words, some people will have the resources and some won’t, whereas initially everyone has the same basic resources in order to participate, and those with more efficient/effective resource will be paid a bit better.
I’m guessing infrastructure contributions will have to have a separate token, and perhaps computation.
The point is that the rate of earning safecoin fluctuates on the whole package of the Vault’s participation, so the answer to “What is being paid for?” can only be “Participating”.
