I am really sorry for the noob questions, but some stuff remain unclear:
Acquiring Maidsafecoins seems to be easy:
- acquire bitcoin through coinbase (or other)
- move the bitcoins to Poloniex
- exchange bitcoins against MaidSafeCoins
- send the bitcoins to a paper wallet, or a bitcoin wallet client and cold store for max security.
Now, where I am not clear is: the day when Maidsafecoins will have to be sent for burning and be exchanged against actual SAFE coins, will we have to download the omni wallet anyway, because sending coins require to comply with the omni protocol ???
When it happens should I use the Omni Core, or is Omniwallet enough ? (I dont trust anything online and Omniwallet is still web-based)
Can I do cold storage through Omniwallet ? Omni Core has to download the whole blockchain from scratch and it is not very convenient. It takes hours.
is there any hardware like Trezor which supports the omni protocol ?
Imagine the dev team eventually delivers and the price of Safemaidcoins triples because of the hype. Everyone will be sending their coins to burn them and get SAFE coins in a very short span. How do you know for sure that https://www.omniwallet.org/ will work and not be subject to a ddos attack for instance?
