The SAFE Network only accepts new Vaults when there is a capacity deficiency. This means a user can’t just create 10 million vaults and connect to the Network. Clearly, this needs to be balanced against the fact that we don’t want to prevent home users from joining.
It’s rare for Maidsafe to acknowledge, that the utilisation of data center architecture will form the basis of the Safenetwork…at least for x years.
Autonomous in operation, clustered in physical distribution.
Home vaults add resiliency, but do they contribute to throughput in any significant way (without local mesh/ peering)
Are home vaults effectively a way of supporting the idea, but at a disadvantage, if entering the lottery is the primary motive of running a vault.
When I run the executable for the first time, should I be presented with the option to create a local vault and/or a provisioned vault (for a fee) and have a reasonable understanding of rationale.
Or is the profitable (latency wins) farming aspect of the network, to be realised only by investors (pooled capital) and those in the know (like the priests of old, who knew the movements of the sun)
