I wanted to get some feedback from some on this forum about how IOTA and the Safe Network might interact if both are successful in the future.
As a disclaimer I am more excited about a decentralized internet with decentralized storage than I am about IOT (Internet of Things) but I’m confident both of these technologies are the logical next step in our connected evolution.
I have read of a few notes about how the Safe Network can play a role in the IOT space but I’m not convinced of this for two reasons. One reason being this isn’t The Safe Network’s core competency from reading the wiki as well I feel it seems more a marketing campaign than an actual goal.
I see a world where Safe Coin is a true “Internet” currency since it gives license to maintain content that would otherwise exceed the bounds generated by farming. However, I don’t see value in Safe Coin reaching IOT devices especially when these devices function autonomously. That’s not to say the Safe Network shouldn’t be the platform for IOT interfaces just that Safe Coin doesn’t seem the proper currency to incentivize IOT device manipulation/interaction.
Someone educate me here if my assumptions seem short sighted or if there is a killer use-case not considered yet.
