One thing that sets the Maidsafe project apart from other crypto projects is the weekly update. The updates provide transparency, accountability and consistency from week to week, month to month, and year to year. For those that are investing, it bolsters the image of integrity and security of the Maidsafe project. Plus those people know where there money is going, and what is being done on their behalf. To provide some perspective, I have provided some statistics on Maidsafe’s weekly update. To do this, I went into the “Updates” folder, and counted every post with the word “update” and a specific date, as a weekly update. Here are some basic “update statistics.”
Number of weekly updates so far: 220
Date of first update: May 19th, 2014
Number of replies to first update: 1, and that person did NOT emphasize that they were the first to reply.
Longest break between updates: I didn’t see any update between September 8th, and November 17th, 2014. That’s a period of 70 days. Other than that, the longest breaks have been 21 days, each Christmas.
