Its been mentioned that its going to be long enough for everyone to exchange, including those who rarely check in.
Well as I mentioned before that about 2 year ago Poloniex expressed an interest even asking when it will be available so they can prepare.
My thought is that since the exchanges hold all the coin of the account holders they would exchange their coin all at once and rename the market at the same time. Since its a 1:1 there is no reason not to. The two coins will be worth the same since they are effective the same value.
Yes, it really is only a matter of deciding on what method to go with, but I’d say only absolutely needed when SAFEcoin reaches a few dollars each. But I hope a lot earlier than that.
You have missed something. The amount of coin returned for farming depends on network conditions. The more spare space the less coin for farming is given. The first month is likely to see a glut of spare space and so 1 coin per 100,000,000,000 GETs and possibly 1 coin per 1,000,000,000,000,000 GETs. In other words possibly very little coin for farming.
BUT even bigger than that there is “recycling” of the coin. In order to have farming people need to upload their data. People will be paying coin to upload their data and that coin is destroyed.
It is very possible that there will be less coin on day 30 than day 1.
