Very interesting. While this isn’t at all the main point of the article, I was intrigued by this part:
The exciting opportunity will be building a model where individual users are rewarded in crypto-currencies for sharing their data in return for services. This is not idealistic it is feasible, because the SAFE Network will work in conjunction with blockchain immutable ledger technologies that can validate transactions
Was this worded like this specifically to reach out to blockchain projects, or is there some idea of tighter integration of the SAFE network and blockchains?
I just wonder why Safecoin (which can validate transactions) wasn’t used in the example here, at least alongside Blockchain immutable ledger technologies. People may miss that the Safe Network can also be a crypto currency platform that hosts coins / tokens and validates transactions, plus can hold a distributed ledger if required.
I’ve always thought it’d be very cool if there were a way to integrate with blockchain nodes to enable them to interact with the SAFE network to scale, using SAFE a bit like the Lightning network by locking up blockchain tokens / currencies so they can be traded / transferred / stored on the Safe network, and then transacted back onto blockchains when required by sending out through SAFE connected nodes.
Very much looking forward to hearing the talk tomorrow, and hearing what the outcomes of the conference are for the team
