I was not sure where to ask this and didn’t find an answer elsewhere.
I saw that one of the possible initial applications would be messaging. This suggested that I could write an app that sent data between two logins that happened to login on different utility devices (eg Pi).or PC
I realise that SAFE is not tied to devices and keeps independent of them, so this would be something at the application level and capable of using IO ports on any suitable computer it used. For example send serial data from the serial port on one computer to the serial port on the other computer.
My question is multi part
Would this be reasonably possible? I am guessing that if messaging can be done so can this, it is after all just a special case of messaging.
What are the implications with PUT charges, do they occur and if they do what is the process used for messaging.
I am thinking that by using SAFE I would not need to know where the 2nd login is located in the world, just their ??ID. Is this correct? Can the ID be either the public or private?
On another note, if I PUT a file 10KBytes of data or 1MBytes, is it the same cost and will it cost 1 coin to put any amount of data upto the cutoff for one coin. OR will it keep a tally and when enough file data is written so that it reaches the cutoff for one coin then the coin is charged. NOTE: I would expect the coin to be charged on the first byte, but when is the 2nd coin charged? On the 2nd small file PUT or when the PUTs exceed the one coin amount of data.
