Hi all I used to be a frequent user here back in 2014. It’s sad to see the network hasn’t been finally released after 7 years, but I’m happy that this project hasn’t been abandoned, as it’s now needed more than ever. I hope SAFE still has a successful launch!
I’ve been out of the loop for a while and have a few questions for you:
- Are my MAID coins still safe? I originally moved them to my own local wallet when the original exchange went under (Poloniex?) The coins haven’t been moved to another blockchain or anything, right?
- What was the final decision with Pay the Provider (PtP)? Is it still a consideration?
- Can you clarify what exactly still needs to be completed before a “final” release, with real SAFE tokens? The roadmap doesn’t make it clear. It says Safe Maxwell Network is coming next, but it only “sets the ground work”. Then there are Apps and User Experience items – do all those need to be finished first as well? A more concrete list of what’s required vs what’s nice-to-have would be great, with a final goal of “RELEASE”.
- Technical question: I see that adding data to the network is pay-once-store-forever by default. What incentive do users who provide storage have to store forever? Do they continue getting paid over time, and if so, are tokens just created out of nowhere? And if not, why should users store data for years, that they’re not getting paid for anymore? Especially considering churn, where users may get old data transferred to them.
