Hi guys, talking about adoption, I read topics in this forum and I believe that there are three types of users (generically speaking):
A) Those who already use technologies that involve privacy (Tor, Bittorrent, Zcash, Monero, etc.)
B) Those who believe that privacy is something important (they learned this by watching news of Facebook scandals, etc.), but don’t fit in group A
C) Those who just use everything that is in the mainstream, believing that “mainstream = reliable/safe”.
Getting adoption from Group A is easier, but will always represent a very small portion of the population. Also, a focus on this group would make the media say that SAFE Network is a place for illegal operations, which would make large-scale adoption even more difficult.
But getting adoption from groups B and C is a big challenge. Groups B and C will not install the Safe Browser for adventure or curiosity, they will only use something that makes a lot of sense to them, something extremely useful.
I don’t know if it is possible, but it would be very interesting if there was a transparent bridge between the Desktop/Mobile operating systems and the Safe Network. For example, imagine that someone developed a messaging application (like Whatsapp) inside the Safe Network, but a user can leave this app installed directly on their phone like any other app. The user does not even know that the app is in Safe Network, for him it does not matter, he just sees the usefulness of communicating in a safe way.
When cell phones started to have internet, there was no need for apps, after all cell phones already had browsers. However, the concept of apps became very popular, I believe that mainly due to the ease of obtaining access to resources with one click, without having to enter a browser - then click on a site, besides the possibility of using many offline resources.
The ideal situation in my opinion would be the possibility of using very useful resources with direct access, in a transparent way. I would like to understand what is possible and impossible to do on this point.
