There are a lot of things MaidSAFE could provide but by far the most important is a permanent unavoidable much safer replacement for efforts like Wikileaks. That will change the narrative in whats left of the net and the way power works in the world. Seems like that has to be the foundation, the fire starter, and its enough to spread the service quickly to scale. Time is compressing.
The best way to ensure a successful SAFEcoin may be to have a successful ProjectSAFE launch first. If need be I hope ProjectSAFE can be launched without the SAFEcoin element… A FED made transparent may be more willing to recognize the practical boundaries of nationality. The intent of the spin on this bit of propaganda (Wired 11/6) seems to be (in part) to lump SAFE in with the sinking “selfish” bitcoin ship.
On the one hand the GOP getting a majority in the Senate may help crypto currency efforts, on the other Obama wants the TPP as does the GOP (as did the Dems) and the GOP now thinks it will push the FCC to further weaken the net for “money as speech” to help fuel the vote suppression efforts that allow it to continue to exist. Voter suppression is not transparency compatible and if they are laying the groundwork for the next 911 for further crack down that wont’ be compatible with transparency either.
