In any case, I pointed out the problems with every project I mentioned. Every project I mentioned, however, is there because each one needs each other to work with another to get a fully working system that can actually replace the current one.
The SAFE network (as it’s current development is looking to go towards) will not be faster than regular P2P, in fact it will be slower than a game of “For Honor” and especially slower than a site like bitchute which uses peers to host its site’s content. This is because the data will be distributed using XOR addressing. To express why this is a problem further, allow me to quote someone from the GoTenna project:
"But after looking at Lightning, and similar protocols, they make two assumptions that must somehow be overcome :
exchanging messages with any node is essentially a free operation, because all nodes are equally connected on the internet
communication costs are negligible and an interactive protocol is ok
Neither assumption is true for a long range, but low bandwidth, mobile mesh network like goTenna."
Two things to note:
- This was said about bitcoin’s lightning network which only has to process transactions and not other data
- This may be specific for GoTenna and all but you may have noticed that net neutrality is going away and will remain true for legacy networks as well.
To top it all off, MaidSafe has been in development for 9 years and substratum is already on its coat tails. When the SAFE network is fully launched it won’t even be as competitive as its alternatives.
I came back here because this is where my mesh network journey began and I felt it was worth it to give you a kick in the rear to wake up and develop a partnership or something to get a competitive edge. I have a plan laid out to get that competitive edge, but it won’t matter if its ignored. (Hint: it has to do with restructuring the powers that grant us access to the internet itself)
