We are currently analysing cost/ capacity & processing performance of a number of alternative data / file storage solutions as an interim option until SAFE is ready. The status of SAFE will be reviewed in the near future for deployment readiness and a decision will be taken whether to pursue the alternative storage solution for a limited period of time, The decision will be communicated together with a short-list of recommendations and associated analysis.
A limited number of seeds will be allocated for testing / promotional purposes (exact number yet to be determined), these seeds will be reserved and phantom seeds issued to the testing cock-pits for use during testing activity. Once integration and penetration testing have completed satisfactorily, live seeds will be available to purchase and associated crypto-wallets activated to enable secure transfer of value.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention: the seed engine mechanics video was misleading as it has the following step in the process ommited : - When n99 retained value (1%) from user activity (excluding content download) reaches 100 seeds in value, 99 of these seeds are scattered randomly amongst all users on the network. n99 retains only 1 seed (1%) from this amalgamated total for it’s own income to mitigate profiteering by the network with the random scattering of the 99% to mitigate users profiting directly by their activities.
Supplementary Comment: the Seed Engine Mechanics video is currently being updated and will be re-issued at the start of testing together with associated documentation
