SAFE Network versus (vs) Everything (v.2)

Isn’t it 42???


Cruel but true, no offense!


Well it depends on the actual question. And in order to understand this question, we must build the greatest network ever envisioned … therefore we must contract with these network builders in Magrathea Ayr.


Thanks, this is great, love it!

Why do I feel that when crypto gurus think the safe-network is broken, that this is an advantage?

Musk, always lies during presentations, by underpromising, clouding the facts, or distracting, while secretly, and subtlety overdelivering.

His strategy is to fool his competitors into giving them a false sense of security, thinking Tesla is further behind than they actually are.

Tesla is so far ahead by now, not many legacy auto manufacturers will ever catch up… like this Polymath expert, the legacy AMs don’t understand what Tesla tech is. It is not a car company, it is a software company. The software is the secret sauce that makes EV’s efficient.

Anyway, Maid Safe has a lot of secret sauce…

So Let them think MAID is broken. And in the shadows the network will grow. And by the time the gurus pay close enough attention, it will be too late to attack. Musk is playing a battlefield strategy: hide your true numbers, and the enemy will be in for a surprise… we will win the war, lol


He’s talking nonsense about Arweave too now, calling it an IPFS clone. The guy is just making stuff up. Arweave stores data on chain, which is nothing like IPFS for better or worse.


The last sentence says it all. “It’s not a blockchain” so it cannot be good.

He is right though, it is not a crypto currency at all. The closest is digital currency but now renamed to what it actually is Distributed storage and protocols with a Digital Token


SAFE Network vs Everything (v3.3) Table

Added from v3.1:
1.) Technical Capabilities - (Row) Categories with color shade distinction: Speed, Security, Privacy, Efficiency, Simplicity, Flexibility
2.) Blockchain: (Column) Proof of Storage - For Sia Coin storage network
3.) Technical Capabilities (Row): Smart Contracts
4.) Clearnet Cloud Services (Column): Tresorit

Adjusted from v3.1:
1.) Technical Capabilities #7 (Row): Renamed “Efficient Energy/Matter Usage” to "No SHA Mining (direct resource network)
2.) Double line for Column names to compact width space
3.) “Post Beta” instead of Check marks in Safe Network (Column)

Is #7 “No SHA Mining (direct resrouce network)” (Row) weirdly phrased? Is their a better way to represent objective energy usage?

Does ABFT still apply even with PARSEC thinned out?
Would an ultra simple way to define SN as: Storage+Compute+BlockDAG+ABFT be accurate?

Chisel this into infographic perfection. Update the original Dynalist as a deep dive comparison. Then make a documentary on Safe Network that takes all these elements and shows them visually with collective narrations. Inspired by the work of melodysheep on Youtube.

Edit 1:
Updated graphic to fix check Score Errors and slight visual grooming

Edit 2:
Updated graphic to include Holochain in DLT net. Also minor graphical formatting


“Social learning is critical to young elephants, who normally pick up successful behavior patterns from older, more experienced members of their herd. Without such role models, generations of ecological knowledge may be lost, leaving some elephants to improvise their survival strategies.”

Real quote from some lad on twitter: “By having Elders (masternodes) you create a permissioned system of oligarchic control”.

Dirty socialist oligarchic elephants!


This has to be the greatest sentence ever made

Edit. Anyone need a band name?


Fantastic work! Love it :star_struck: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


I think it is worth add Filecoin (storage in production) and Fantom (async consensus in production) to comparison.


Could you please add a comparison of The Internet Token to this list, it seems to be a pretty much direct competitor to MaidSafe.

SAFE Network vs Everything (v4.0) - Finally a real Info-graphic in 4k!

Added Since v3.3:
1.) Info-graphic as a dark theme layout. Full 16:9, 3840 x 2160, 3.3 MBs
2.) Fantom, Internet Computer Protocol (ICP), and Skycoin sections

Adjusted from v3.3:
1.) Read left to right and competition heats up.
2.) Bottom text on image reads “This comparative analysis is an attempt to account for every technology’s current design specification to its theoretical limits at launch.” I felt putting “Post Beta” in the older version for SN section was a cheat since every project would have to be scrutinized in a similar fashion in relation to it’s current features. Theoretical limits implies you either got it or you don’t there is no “maybe we can add it later” clause. Saying this I am concerned about section “Broad Application Focus”. We’ll see

(18 Attributes) X (19 Technologies) = 342 Investigations

Still want to make a documentary which would be this info-graphic expanded to animation form with narration. Need to figure how I’m gonna monetize it, cause it’s gonna be a lot of work.

EDIT: SN forum drops res to HD, Here is Imagur Link to actual 4k


SAFE Network vs Everything (v4.1) - Infographic in 4k

Adjusted Since v4.0
1.) Hedera has aBFT, the check score was correct but didn’t actually have the check. Fixed that.


Great job @Bargo_d! I will post an ad on Facebook, more people need to enjoy this beauty!


Privacy. Security. Freedom

Until the network is out and this can be measured and tested its pretty hearsay. Will be nice once it’s released and this all proves to be true!

That’s a lazy interpretation… the ambition and direction of travel, are important… otherwise energy would be wasted not understanding the intent. Nothing is achieved by so many who plan for nothing…

Also, half the fun is anticipation and planning for a variety of what will be possible.


On the other hand every project out there promises the impossible, have to be careful not to fall in hype trappings as well.

The goal of this was to be an almost non-marketing reference. There are no buzz words just purely utilitarian information. I was even tempted to rename it as “Crypto Technology Comparison Chart” but that would actually undermine what SN actually is. The best project will stand on its technical attributes and how quickly it can capitalize them in the market. SN looks great on paper, but there may be technologies that are good enough and getting the mass adoption faster as has already happened. Real comparative analysis barely exist in this industry. Partly because it’s like catching multiple moving trains of progress but also because there is way too much noise directed toward the cryptocurrency FOMO crowd. SN has the misfortune of having transcended well beyond that design specification.
