It is very important to get content/applications onto the SAFE-network to let it grow and really replace the current internet.
For this to happen we need developers and the easiest way to get developers is to tell them how to earn money on the SAFE-network.
I am sure a lot of developers will jump on board quickly if they know how to earn money on the SAFE-network in an unconventional way.
I already put some thoughts into how to make money with a SAFE-Network app since I am interested to build something with this network.
But I am not sure if my statements below are correct or if there are other possibilities:
People which access files will not only pay the provider but also the person who initially uploaded it. Maybe also the uploader of a file can pass ownership.
Can we determine access fee (per kB or per file)? This would open the possibility to a database of files on a per use basis and not a ‘I pay 10$ per month even if I dont use anything’.
Owner of a file shares read only access to subscribers. After subscribtion is ended, access to file is removed. Is the removal of access possible?
Wouldnt it possible for a person to gain access once and copy everything nearly instantaniously into his own SAFE-network directory?
Earnings by app usage:
I read that core developers will get rewarded based on the GET requests into the network.
But what happens to a developer who wraps those core apps (or others) and build an application on it? This new app will have no direct requests to the network and therefore will get no reward.
Is there a structure in place that allows such wrapper to be identified and pass eg 30% of earnings to the wrapped application?
