I think Bitcoin will rule and these 2 firms are best known for building solutions around it. Was wondering if a collaboration with them (as Safe team feels appropriate based on timing of beta release) for SAFENET to become the go to storage layer for any Apps developed on tools provided by these firms, that will be awesome for SAFE network. The mission/vision to build safe, decentralized internet and solutions is common amongst all of the 3 companies (blockstanck, Blockstream and Safenet). SAFE network is blockchain less but can certainly be the storage partner for these entities.

Thank you for your answer… After reading your post I have googled a little and found out BlockStream is behind Lightning. WOW! Haven’t known that… I am still probably a crypto noob (but learning) :smiley:

I totally support the idea of @dirvine making a guest appearance on JRE if the opportunity ever presents itself. That would be absolutely incredible for the cause.

Hey you read my mind :sweat_smile:

I think though he would need to read up on the network first. From what I’ve seen of his interviews he tends to know a fair amount about the subject matter prior to the interview and prides himself for doing his research. In other words there would need to be some back n forth prior to the interview so he is aware of what it is all about and how it affects people & for example his streaming.

Here’s one - they’ve even got the name sorted! :joy:

Seriously though, providing secure access to datasets for academics is a good use case for SAFE.

I think I read a headline yesterday that Sir Tim Berners Lee has partnered with Blockstack. Does that open up potential for Maidsafe to partner with Blockstack as well. I’ve been pitching this for ‘soooooooo’ long. How great would it be for SAFE to become the fully integrated and go to storage layer for SOLID and Blockstack.

I know we need to wait for beta and a fully functional product but perhaps initial discussions could begin on this front. This will also allow the experts at Blockstack review SAFE and provide honest feedback for SAFE team to collectively work towards a great solution/final product. Thoughts?

Doesn’t look like anything new has happened, unless I’m missing something. TBL signed up to Blockstack last year and tweeted about it, and for some reason they’re rehashing the story on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJ4bs6vaoKw
