With all the bitcoin hardforks happening, it’s come to my mind that it would be great PR if we could hardfork bitcoin to run on the SAFENetwork.
It would likely be a major rewrite of the code and would require moving the blockchain data onto the SAFENetwork (datachains?) … So it’s not a simple fork.
maybe bitcoin mining on this fork could be replaced with PoS? Not sure.
I am sure that it would bring a lot of bitcoiners into the SAFEnet ecosystem - if only temporarily for some, so that they could claim whatever value their holdings in the fork creates. And getting people onto the network in the early stages after launch would help promote the network a lot I reckon.
Another interesting advantage of bitcoin on SafeNet is speed - transaction speeds on SafeNet would likely blow away the speeds available on existing bitcoin technology.
Anyway, thought I’d put this idea out there for discussion.
I’m categorizing this under marketing and not other projects as IMO this could potentially become a little MAIDSAFE sideproject ‘app’ which could become a use-case for moving or creating alt-coins in the SAFENetwork ecosystem.
