I am blown away by this project. To think it was in development prior to Satoshi’s whitepaper. IMO the SAFE network isn’t getting the credit it deserves. As an aside i found out about the SAFE network by searching for decentralized storage with the thought a decentralized internet could exist. Mainly i was let down by blockstack using “cloud” (centralized) storage and though there has to be a better way and then i found this!!! My lord, it’s the silver bullet, predating all others like blockstack, filecoin, storj, sia and even bitcoin for that matter. When i read comparisons between SAFE and others i always hear the same response, safe is overly ambitious. With that i have a few questions.
How is accessing public pages and consuming data free?
Does the SAFE network allow decentralization without a traditional blockchain? Is this what the SAFE network is?
Are safe coins only really necessary for end users who don’t contribute via farming or apps?
If i wanted to create an app with significant data how could i get it off the ground without enough safecoin?
Im pretty excited about developing my own app. Am i limited to Rust or are there other languages?
Finally, what are the current gotchas? I know im asking this amongst those who might be bias but i want to know what the most educated group feels about this projects short comings.
I read a good deal of the wiki so plz be gentle if i missed something obvious
