The discussion on making safe alt coins got me thinking the yesterday. I wanted to essentially make a ledgerless bitcoin 2.0 that PoW would benefit the network. I started thinking about what all the network actually needs and how to measure the metrics. That led me down looking into some other projects and how they measure their metrics… and it struck me - Safe covers the space of so many other projects all at once.
IPFS - DNS based file location and quasi permanence - We do that.
Storj - blockchain based file storage at a cost - we do that and way better
Ethereum - blockchain based “world computer”. While we don’t do that yet, I know there has been a ton of thought put into it and the network being designed to roll it out with “ease”.
There are three very admirable projects, but they don’t have the tech to have it done really well and efficiently. That’s SAFE. Why try to figure out how to make 3 different projects work together to play nice when you can just use one? Every time I have another epiphany about safe I am in awe again.
TL;DR: Thank you @dirvine for your vision and tenacity to carry it through for all of these years. You’ve managed to figure out a way to put together in one nice neat package what others have only managed to do part of, in a more efficient and distributed way than anyone else. Keep up the amazing work team!
