Safe network is designed to be anonymous, untraceable. It is supposed to be impossible to know who I talk to. Unless they tell me. But are they lying? How to trust?
Yes! This is a common problem. I’m saying that all this time. We need a way to do it well.
See: I have a secret identity “Norimi”. And 3 others? (No, 17! Different name everywhere. Not lying.) I use them for different things. They are “me” but who me is not public.
But I have a public name too. My real name. I use it for things when it matters. If I marry. If I buy stocks. If I sell you my house. We can use government identification and lawyers. (Later, safe network will be government identification? Who knows.)
But there are other times when I want to know you are you and the only you, not a made up persona. My girlfriend knows I am who I am. Do I have a hidden wife? Kids? I said no. Is it true? That’s important! She must be sure she knows I am who I say.
So. We need a way that people can verify real identity. I know you, you know him, he knows her. Now I can trust she is a real person. Thing like that.
