I stumbled upon this post on Reddit. There is some skepticism in the comments and @nicklambert, @dirvine and @Fraser tries to answer most of it. Still, I don’t think that people really get what MaidSafe is/does from this. I think that a lot of people compare it to Freenet. Someone said: “Isn’t there like 5 other projects doing the EXACT same thing?”. Someone else mentioned Hyperboria.
It would be great to have a summary/comparison of these systems, from a technical standpoint but also in what they try to accomplish. It would be a great resource for newcomers.
I know it’s a big task so perhaps we can use this thread to collect bits and pieces that can later be summarized.
