I’m new to the forum and have been out of the bitcoin scene for a wee while having suffered a number of investment disatsters courtesy of Danny Brewster and a handful of bitcointalk securities scams and failed businesses.
I bought into Maidsafe having been inspired by David Irvine’s podcast on Letstalkbitcoin! and only in the last week realised that not only has bitcoin price crashed but maidsafecoins have gone up significantly since my initial purchase.
Over the last couple of days I’ve been hit by the bug again having brought myslef up to date with the latest on Maidsafe.
So that was my intro, now down to the subject matter. I’m not that well informed on Maidsafe and have the following questions, although before I go ahead I want to say that I’m in this for the money in equal part to believing in this technology concept as a betterment for mankind and can’t wait to start farming.
- If safecoins are to be distributed in set proportions; x to crowd sale, y to devs and z to farmers then what incentive is there for the network to continue once z has been depleted?
- Will farmers who get in early benefit from that in the same way bitcoin miners benefitted from a low ‘difficulty’.
- If goverments and large corporations decide to put an end to David Irvines dream can they be prevented?
- If comercial data centres pop up to support the network and account for the large proportion of resources what happens to the network if they lose incentive?
Thanks guys. I’m only a stones throw from Troon and would love to pop in one day, but for now it’s best to let them crack on. Good luck.
