Looks like a pre-launch app in Synereo are interested in utilizing the SAFEnetwork. I wonder if they realize that SAFE ‘storage’ is not an API you can access from the web.

The Distributed & Decentralized Social Network
Your curiosity. Your family. Your hobbies. Your passions. The things you love and care about. Belong to you.
The beauty of recent developments based on the innovative Bitcoin blockchain technology is that they allow the public to claim control over previously centralized endeavours. By creating automated, trustless interactions over the network, we can now build systems that do not require concentrated power to maintain order. Rather, the power is spread throughout the network and is left in our hands, the active participants in it.
The Bitcoin revolution has brought us control over our money. In this position of control, we are its owners and we decide what to do with it, uninhibited by the interests of those in positions of great influence. Synereo is attempting to do the same, only with the fundamental social tool of the Information Age - the social network.
With current social networks, you are not the client. You are the product being sold - and for huge sums of money that you will never see. These massive corporations maintain extensive databases characterizing your behavior in an attempt to exploit the content that you create and the networks that you build with your friends and family. They’ve tapped into your deeply human need to socialize, with no respect for your privacy or psychological well-being, to turn your life into an endless marketing opportunity.
Your Identity is valuable. Your
All carry monetary value. Everything you do online is being tracked and monetized for someone else’s financial gain. And while these corporations tap into our most basic of needs, they demonstrate the ability - and, as a publicly traded company, a reason - to adjust their algorithms in a way that affects human behavior on a large scale.
We’re now in a unique position to take this power back from our social networks, to keep the value we create for ourselves, and put it to work for us. By disconnecting the application from its current axiom of generating revenue for its corporate owner, we can move development in the direction of supporting the network and its users. It becomes an ever-evolving social product, shaped to facilitate our need and desire to communicate.

im a member of the synereo dev team - a new distributed social
network - and we are evaluating distributed storage solutions. i would
very much appreciate if you can assist me with a couple of questions:
- do you have a testnet setup yet and if so can we contribute to testing?
- do you have any timescales on when storage will be ready for use in production?
