Introduce yourself


Hi, my name is Francois, I’m a web developer from France.
I heard about the safe network reading an article about crypto currencies. I must say I was very impressed but skeptical when I first read few days ago that there were actually people working on such a project. A decentralized internet? really? But the more I read about the safe network, the more I am actually excited.
A decentralized internet would be a great start to end many problems in this world, and it’s about time for things to change. It would be a new heaven for potential whistleblowers who are actually under a lot of pressure right now. I really want to get involved and become a node. I feel like this is the most important thing that needs to happen right now.
I wish you all the best, you are the best of mankind.

My name is Mark and I’m a linux administrator for several year. I’m not a crypto currency expert, still learing since litecoin appearing, ut in this case this project is very interesting to me because of the concept of bringing internet freedom back.

Nice to meet you!


My name is Emanuele and I discovered crypto currencies only in the early 2017. I have been trying to get info and understand how and why to invest into MaidSafe.

I don’t know anything about brokerage, finance and the likes. I even have difficulties installing the necessary tools and I’m still trying to figure out how to invest money into this project and protect my investment.

Hopefully someone will be so kind to point me what to download and install and how to become a part of the crew. I actually believe in this project more than on others despite many crypto currencies have had a faster increase in value.

That being said Hello


I’m Robb Sands, an American in Scotland, so pardon my occasional lack of “u’s” in spelling, and redneck twang in pronounciations :slight_smile:

My background is an odd mix of technical and marketing. I’ve managed software teams in American, telecom engineers in Britain, done quality assurance, implementation, business analysis, product management - all in the Microsoft world.

Realising marketing was intuitive, and necessary, I’ve spent a number of years managing marketing teams, running my own digital agency and am never really sure which is more interesting, marketing or development. It’s all a reason to wake up in the morning!

I’m a member of various IETF groups, have donated years of my life to charities and enjoy work most when there’s a cause that needs my participation, and that of others too.

I’ve been fascinated by cybercurrency, mined bitcoin and a few variations, just to see how it all worked. Bought a few, made a couple of quid and should have bought more.

For me, MaidSAFE, the project, the network, apps, currency, despite me not knowing all the ins and outs, has my attention. It strikes me as one of those really massive fireworks displays that you’re just about to light. It’s not exploding everywhere yet, but it just gives that hair standing up on the back of your neck feeling, in anticipation.

I’d love to see how far the boundaries can be pushed, figure out how I can make a bit of money in the process, and end up feeling satisfied that I’ve been a part of the effort.

This seems like a great project, a cool group of people involved and active, and I’m looking forward to contributing wherever I can…


Hello, my name is Manuel Vargas. I’m noob programmer and I think this is an exciting project that I will follow and in invest in. I’m new in crypto world too, but I’m learning with you. Thank you all.


I’m Bryan from Austin, TX. Recently became interested in cryptocurrencies, block chain technologies, and decentralized data. Looking forward to seeing MaidSafe develop and innovate!

Edit: Really impressed with the forum layout and functionality. Keep up the great work! :taco:


Flokii From Australia.

I am currently studying cryptography and computer science.
Super excited about the way a portion of the world is moving to a decentralised system.


Всем привет, меня зовут Артем, я из России. Новые технологии как Биткоин пользуются успехом,но к сожалению этот поезд уже ушел, maidsafe будет революционным изобретеннием, в котором я хочу помоч чем смогу

MOD EDIT (google translate)

Hello everyone, my name is Artem, I’m from Russia. New
technologies like Bitcoin are a success, but unfortunately this train
has already left, maidsafe will be a revolutionary invention, in which I
want to help than I can


Hi, I’m Dan from Little Rock, AR. I call myself a computer enthusiast because I’ve been dabbling on PCs since they came out. Unfortunately I’m also ADHD so while I enjoy trying anything and everything computer related I rarely master anything. I ran across MaidSafe while updating my knowledge of cryptocurrencies. The technology has the potential to be the future of the internet.
I look forward to watching it develop and hope my lack of technical savvy will make me a valuable product tester as the average end user.


Hi. I’m from Malaysia. Been following this project for a little more than a year now. Been delaying my intro in this thread but hey, better late than never right?


Hi, I am Harvindar from Malaysia. Have been following Maidsafe since July last year. It is exciting to see the developments and am looking forward to it go live. It has the potential to reset the internet as we know. What it will offer is needed. Happy to know about the project.


Hi, I’m from South Africa. I have a small MSP company. I came across Maidsafe when researching Cryptocurrencies. I’m super excited to see where this project goes.

Nice to meet you all


Hello, I have been following the forum for a couple of years and just joined it last week. Impatient to see the final result of this amazing project.


Hello, I’m BTCrypt and I’m a Microsoft engineer (specialization: AD, Office365 and Azure). I Highly believe in the decentralization of the internet AND money. I’ve been following the safe netwerk from the start, but I got involed today because I’m really, really looking forward to Alpha 2.

I Can’t wait for this to go live.



My name is Brian Jolly and I am a mechanic, initially as aircraft and later adding industrial machinery. I am fascinated with the idea of a decentralized and gateway-less internet. I have followed MaidSafe and it’s work for the better part of the past year and have been excited to see how it is progressing. I really believe that this technology will revolutionize the digital world. I hope to eventually be involved in some small way and I am very interested in the Alpha 2 release.


Hello everybody,

My name is Mark Peers, and I work as a controls support engineer in the glamorous world of Airport Baggage Handling. I have been interested in blockchain technology for about 6 months and I am keen to keep learning about anything related. I joined this forum because I am really interested in maidsafe and also have a peaked interest in project decorum, and this seems to be the most active place to find some information on that particular project.
Happy to be here!


Hi! My name is Soton. I’ve lived on four different continents, but currently call the US home where I work as a management & strategy consultant. I first heard about crypto back in 2010 when I read about Bitcoin while sitting in my cube at an ad agency (used to work as a brand strategist). I thought it was an interesting concept, but couldn’t have imagined what it has and will become. These days, I’m more interested in learning about the applications the technology (block chain, and now data chain, it seems) enables as well as the applications that support the ecosystem, than crypto as a currency (but that’s still awesome too). I’ve been following Maidsafe from a distance for a bit, and am excited to see what comes next. :slight_smile:


Hello! This is really exciting to me, the whole idea gives me hope for our potential future. Great to know there is a community involved in this project, hope I can help somehow, although I am not a programmer. Still a fan!



I’ve been following MaidSafe, and SAFE Network for a little under a year now. My interest arrived predominantly via the Rust community. I’m a full time software developer mostly in the ruby space. I started following Rust over three years ago. I’ve recently become more active in security, and privacy oss. I think the SAFE Network has great potential that I’m excited to explore. Ideally I’d like to begin helping out with some of the os issues where I can. But first I want to familiarize myself with the community. So here I am!
