Hello, i’ve been lurking around here for a few months now and really excited to see the progress of the project. It’s crazy how far the team has come. Really happy to be part of such a great project and community.
I am Pushparajan from India. Went through some video presentations and loved the way true internet must be. I used to be fan of technology behind BitTorrent and now the whole internet pictured this way amazed me. I am an excellent C++ developer who is very much interested on distrivuted systems. Eveb my master porject is around it. Love to see true Web 2.0 ontology application on the safe network so that the search on this network gives really useful results. The idea of mining your private data is no more with big corporations made me even more interested. Waiting for my token to test the SafeBrowser.
My name is Matt and I live in St. Paul, MN, US. I’ve been involved in the blockchain industry since 2012, first in buying Bitcoin, then mining for a bit, then Ethereum, then assorted startups such as Ascribe and Colu (as a user and dev, not someone with position). I got into Solidity development 18 months ago, and have been developing in that and Python/Tensors for about 3 years.
My whole life is in this space now. I just started a Podcast called Makers of Chains, which is both educational and satirical take on the industry. A purely educational platform which’ll cover the industry from an architecture, development, and scam aversion framework, and finally, working on my personal DAPP projects. The biggest one is a Blockchain as a Service, with Smart Contract Protocols managing a series of executions. The DAPP is to reverse engineer human resources into a completely open, immutable system where all employees see varying value in their performance with each other, rather than middle-management determining value. Also, by varying metrics of distribution, differing scarcity tokens are issued to employees, which performs a few innovations 1) creates an open market-place for Paid Time Off; Sick Time; Unpaid Time Off; etc where employees can buy, sell, or trade their time resources amongst any other employee as they see fit. 2) creating a holocratic/flat/agile environment where staff openly vote on priorities of projects to reduce needs for meetings. & 3) to create an open, censorship-resistant history which is represented by way of tokens for staff to have the power to purchase their own promotion, to further enable the power of an open, merit-managed/leadership managed system, replacing the opaque, bureaucratic, and often times slow process laid in the hands of human resource divisions, which is innumerably responsible for employee retention cycles.
Maidsafe could indeed be a core utility to help myself, and support others, with their long-term projects in this industry.
Hi, I’m Matthew. I heard of Maidsafe a while ago and joined more recently. I’m interested in peer-to-peer based hosting systems, since that seems like a great benefit to independant media publication, preserving web sites that would otherwise get overwhelmed by traffic, fail from lack of maintinence, or get motetized too aggressively in an attempt to manage the former problems. Safecoin doesn’t seem like a bad idea, but I’m glad it’s more of a side-effect of how the Safe Network is meant to load-balance itself, rather than being the primary function of the network.
Hi, I am Simone. Doing a PhD in distributed data storage. I joined the forum to know more about MaidSAFE, in particular about its underlying model and architecture.
Hey, I’m Tyler from Buffalo City, NY. I’m a pharmacist and affiliate marketing enthusiast. I have a huge passion for food, hate to stay in comfort zone.
Hello all, I have been a long time maid margin trader on polo and have a lot of interest in the safe network. Glad to see such an active community after all these years!
Hi all and cheers from Italy. It’s indeed good to see there is such an active community. I am looking forward knowing more about this project and collaboration.
Hi, Dave here,
I am a PhD student at NSU, Florida and doing research into decentralized storage vs cloud/edge as my first proposal is an automated web cache so they can both exist and decentralized host get paid automatically for improving delivery and bandwidth use. Step one is comparing performance for viable candidates. Hoping to build a new future!
Keep up the great work.
Hi, AMWNN here,
I am a USAF member, residing in Dallas, TX. I’m in the financial world, completing my CFP while working towards my Masters in Counseling. Recently, I’ve started a company merging cryptocurrency and commercial real estate so I’m excited to buy some more properties and making guaranteed income from my crypto portfolio. I stumbled across MaidSafeCoin after figuring out my 40/40/20 strategy and it’s been a great few days. I love this community! SO much positivity, knowledge and a great future. Keep up the great work!
Got interested in MaidSAFE after watching Silicon Valley and did a few quick google searches. Found this project and it’s been on my mind for over a year now. Lurked forums here and there but never joined in a conversation till now.
I see the huge potential in this, and what made Bitcoin valuable from a few pennies to thousands of dollars will most certainly make SAFE coins valuable as well. If this works and MaidSAFE releases a robust browser initially, this will change everything. Power to the individual and anarchy in the best way possible.
Edit: I’d also like to learn a lot more about what’s happening in the MaidSAFE Network. Has this idea been possible for awhile and if not what changed in terms of technical concepts or mathematics. How did this project get started, are there any interviews on the founders?
I’m CEO at FincaMínimo, a startup aiming at private property management. We’ve developed our own platform in order to manage private property communities. We are really interested on privacy of data, and of course on cryptograghy. I would be glad if I could test SAFE Network, in order to try to beeing part of it, making our platform available on it if possible.
I am here to introduce myself.
I am from India.I love exploring about new things,gaining knowleges,shizuka I am the explorer of Knowlege.
Waiting for someone to welcome me.
Hey all! This is my first post on here. I am coming from a project called Intercoin (intercoin.org), which my friends and I started about a year ago. It lets communities issue and manage their own currencies for their members. Before that, I ran a startup called Qbix (qbix.com) which built a platform for communities to launch their own social apps to connect their members.
We find that social networks form a very good base for adding a payment layer on top. Money derives its value from a sort of network effect, same as social networks. You can see this with WeChat, Facebook Payments, Google Payments, and now Kik and Telegram ICOs. However, all those networks are global and monolithic. We want a federated DLT that gets partitioned by community, however large or small it is.
When I looked at the SAFE project, I really thought you guys had just the right architecture for file storage. It is the closest in spirit to the kind of technology we aim to build. It is actually decentralized and secure in the most effective way. When I was designing Intercoin’s payment system, I came across very similar ideas. Kademlia trees, DAGs for histories permissions and rules, and local rather than global consensus. We also added some new concepts, such as the Permissionless Timestamping Network, which you guys might like.
I have some criticism / questions about how you are implementing crypto-currency on top of SAFE (MaidSAFE?) but I will write that in another topic.
Hey guys - I have been getting more interested in bitcoin and altcoins lately, and upon doing research I found this project. I am not an engineer, I am actually a community manager that is one of the original community managers (about 13 years doing it professionally) haha. But I was excited to see this project as it is much needed and I think I would feel better about putting some money in a cause I really care about. I get the jist of what is going on here but will dig deeper before I ask any questions prematurely.
