I'm Juan Galt, I've been a journalist and researcher in the crypto space for about 4 years now. I'm currently working for The Dollar Vigilante and we've decided to cover Maidsafe for our next newsletter.
I've gotten in contact with the PR team and we'll be doing an interview over the next few days, but I wanted to throw some questions at the community here and explore some of these topics. From business development and growth strategy to the tech side of things.
Shall we? Here's some important questions to start off with.
My understanding of Maidsafe before this round of research was that it aims to use sharded encrypted redundant storage of data to create a secure and decentralized internet. Is this still the case and what is the state of development as far as that kind of data storage?
Maidsafe's token is currently ontop of OMNI onto of Bitcoin. From what I've read, it will be swaped for another one called Safecoin at some point in a future upgrade. Does the team/community have any leads or conclusions as to what blockchain they will use for Safecoin, or do they intend to build their own?
Also, from what I gather, the current Maidsafe network is wholly on testnet. and that's ok. I understand that ETA's in software are annoying and problematic. It'll be ready when it is ready ,yes ...
But. I'm curious. What are your predictions or estimates about when Maidsafe will go mainet?
-Last but not least, are there any big news, updates, events or anything exciting coming up in the short term that is news worthy or important to users, investors and speculators?
-[EDIT] Another important questions which I forgot to ask is about the domain resolving process / system. If Maidsafe is decentralized and has no blockchain, how then does this system work?
Are there any network topology maps I can look at? tnx.
Thank you very much for your time. I'll engage you folk in the comments.
