My name is Doug. Im a truck driver in the US, no college, tech enthusiast. I own a bit of maidsafecoin and have been following since the crowd sale. I have a few questions.
I would like to be able to explain to someone else how the more popular a file, website or app becomes the faster it becomes. (Scalability) As I understand it each file will be encrypted then broken into shards. 4 Copies of each shard will be made and then scattered across the network into many vaults. Also, as i understand it, if the exact same file is stored on the network by several users only one file will be stored. If there are always only 4 copies how does it scale? Does something like a swarm in a torrent happen and if so who gets paid for the gets that aren’t necessarily coming from a vault.
Thanks in advance for your patience.
Cheers from the highways and byways of the US.
