I recently I gave Safe project presentation at Paralelni Polis at Prague (in Czech) https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1JWU92t9fa0M-q909T14lSgSkG1uSSFdLxxjR8_6AaDk/pub and I got a few of question that I wasn’t able to answer. I am sure these were addressed somewhere already. Thank you for pointing me there.
(1) How fast the network will be, mainly in terms of latency? Would it be usable for ordinary browsing? Are there any reliable tests or predictions? My fear is that the network will soon be overwhelmed by the protocol communication.
(2) Is there any schematic documentation of Safe logic network structure? Meaning what are the main data structures saved in DHTs, that the network relies on: node PKI - client data and datamaps - safecoin - data chunks - …
(3) User can store the data forever without need to pay per time or giving (forever) equivalent amount of disk space hile the network itself seems to be unable to forget even if resources are going down. This seems to be a design glitch, isn’t it?
(4) Since users has to pay for storage only once, this seems to contradict the fact that farmers are paid based on resource/time.
(5) Client authentication is based on static key+password+PIN right now. Will it be possible to authenticate based on challenge-response? This would greatly enhance client side security, mainly when private keys would be stored on hardware like TREZOR and would never leave the device.
