See although I agree with you it’s also a false dichotomy because we can have both.
I honestly do not believe SAFE will take over the Internet at any point in time in terms of volume of user uptake. I just don’t see that happening in my crystal ball.
What I do see happening is that we will end up having several layers of the Internet with various networks adding these layers to it. In fact we are already seeing this with the ‘dark web’. Also we know there are intranets running on private networks within the private business sector etc. And we’ll end up maybe even having hardware and OS’s that can only connect to specific networks.
SAFE will be one of these layers of networks and users will switch to and from and I dont think that is a bad thing.
So if I did start this thing I think I would focus on the current Internet too. I’d have too. That’s where the users are, plain and simple. If I want to help people, I help them with the current websites, apps and software they use and of course swing them towards SAFE whilst doing it.
