In my mind the critical use case for SAFE is a kind of ARPANET II. The goal of the original network was to keep communication alive under the then worst case existential tech attack outcome which was nuclear war. Now we live with surveliance security states in a winner take all race to set off quite possible a dooms day machine in run away synthetic intelligence while some of these same states are claiming they’ve been long term encountering unidentified phenomena that implies the existence of possibly tamed run away intelligence or just that it is here now and of course we can’t understand it but it may put an upper limit on our attempts to light a fire we can’t contain.
At roughly 50kbs a second up and presumably at least 50kbs down SAFE is good enough to reproduce early 90s internet which is good enough for secure chat, email and text. And that can go on solar powered battery backed tough disposable nodes with mesh and line of sight optical like lifi or longer distance optical and on reworked phones or maybe just little pager like devices that contain nodes.
There has to be 1 in 100k people or 30k adult people that need that security now for the real security of a livable world.
Release now perfect later. And screw the coin. People who are overly excited about crypto are people who think there is something wrong with fiat when the potential and value of fiat is 10 billion times that of crypto and crypto is nothing more than a little patch for fiat. Its so damn laughable that these manipulated libertarians want to eliminate the state but don’t also want to eliminate money, markets and contracts. They don’t want the state but do want unrestrained might-makes-right coercion and manipulation despite saying they
are about being free of coercion.
Also this has to be released now if you haven’t already let the code out forkable to keep the control freak UK government from stopping it.
