I do want to mention, even though I’m not a coder, I did some research and guys, it’s a fact that good softwares take a long time to build. Patience is key.
I was worried for longer times it takes to launch for two main reasons:
- A competition will make another safenetwork faster and
- The infrastructure of the internet will be out of date, that we will have another form of data storage/coding/internet that uses completely different infrastructures than the Safenetwork can work with, so the whole developed code ends up being outdated and useless(e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7atw7THKho this video talks about how quantum entanglement can be used to transmit information, and what i found was that they do not travel on wires, the whole current infrastructures will need to be updated to allow qubits to travel and China already is on top of doing it http://www.news.com.au/technology/science/space/china-sets-new-record-for-quantum-entanglement-en-route-to-build-new-communication-network/news-story/e528da0cf68b2e63bbe093cab49ec507)
Conclusion from my research so far though, is that there isn’t really a competition quite yet, the current ones we have, the main one being substratum, is making progress but is also doing their tests, however, i don’t think it’s going to be as good as the Safenetwork technology and privacy wise(although, i may be proven wrong and frankly the safenetwork’s browser isn’t as good in terms of it’s GUI and overall feel, it feels like the old Internet Explorer, while substratum doesn’t need a special browser), and i do notice, they can do marketing much better, with weekly VIDEO developer updates. I mean, for such a short amount of time, they’ve accumulated over 11000+ people in their telegram group. Our group is only current at 1400 people and we started both our existence as well as the telegram group earlier than them. At least 6 months earlier. (which btw, if you use telegram, feel free to join https://t.me/safenetwork). So this will be the biggest ‘concern’ so to speak, if any. Which decentralised internet will have more actual users and adoption. Much like how Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are competiting for users and adoption. But overall i think if the Safenetwork can do a good job at it’s technology and GUI, it’ll be the biggest in the space.
The second issue, after my research i concluded it’s not a big concern at the moment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4fEVgILGos I’ve watched this video and done other research, and concluded that at least for 5 or so years, the whole infrastructure won’t change as much. People and government are still interested in investing into 7 year long projects building new 5G networks for example. And i definitely think in 5 years, they’d be done or basically done with their development. So I’m actually not as worried now. I can wait as long as it takes And so should you, really, as i think if you don’t give the development team too much pressure, they will do better. They definitely have enough pressure as is.
But a few suggestions would be, marketing team needs pressure and also, need to build a safebrowser(which is the main gateway to interact with the safenetwork, so this is like everything, if we can build a good safebrowser it’ll mean a lot) that’s much more like Google Chrome look and feel instead of the old Internet Explorer which no one likes to use these days. Mainly due to it’s GUI and look and feel.
