As this is my first post, I would like to express my great respect for what you are doing here. It’s truly amazing stuff.
I’m in the process of understanding the concept of MaidSafe and I need your help with some of the issues.
Let’s assume I intend to build an application based on the MaidSafe framework and use SafeCoins as a way to monetize it.
How will my users access my app? Will my app be a stand-alone entity or will my app’s users be required to install MaidSafe first and then access my app inside the framework? Will there be something like an app store where I publish my app (i.e. something like Ethereum Mist browser)? Is my app supposed to use the MaidSafe self-authentication mechanism or have its own custom authentication?
I’ve read the thread about the issues associated with rewarding the content creators and possible ways to prevent the revenue stealing through unauthorized duplication.
Will the same issue concern the application creators? In other words, if I create a popular MaidSafe app can some third party just jump in and redistribute my app excluding me from the SafeCoin revenue stream? Or do we have a mechanism to prevent this?
