Shower thought suggestion here. Not completely thought out at all.
Would it be possible to allocate, collectively, centrally (or whatever) a small 1% fee of all Maidsafe coins (or transactions) to a non-profit organisation via a fund that is setup to buy, build and distribute global comms hardware for the SAFENetwork to use.
Communications hardware meaning fibre-optics, satellites, routers and then eventually even mobile phones, desktop computers.
Users can then sign up to this network for free. This can expand to mobile networks, telecommunications etc. The smart phones and computers would obviously need to be purchased with safecoins from the non-profit organisation and those funds would go back into building and maintaining the hard network.
Alternatively not all SAFENetwork users would have to pay this fee and only those who want to, therefore only they can then signup to the hardware network.
Maybe an idea to fund this Mesh Network I have read about?
Other threads I have found discussing something similar:
p.s. I have no idea when it comes to technology, so please be nice.
