I’m a newbie… And i got into Safemaid because i was looking for a secure way to browse the internet. In doing my mandated reading for membership… I have learned that Safemaid is a conglomerate fueling a cryptocurrency called Safecoin and that the browser mostly works by caching small bits of websites on peoples computer. Because the program isn’t complete, there are some “bootstraps” which i presume to be servers connected to traditional internet in case someone decides to visit an unknown site… Correct me if i’m wrong.
This feels very p2p to me… which is cool. I like p2p but i have no understanding of blockchain and cryptocurrency although I understand the idea presenting of a value-service exchange and I’m ok with it for anonymity. However, I have to ask what if I visit a site that’s generally unknown or unpopular? Would I have any anonymity? Also, what’s the difference between Safemaid and a p2p Vpn for anonymity? Wouldn’t they do the same thing essentially? Albeit, I can reason that the problem with Hola is that you may be the exit node for some unsavory content. That doesn’t seem to be a problem here as the key is caching instead of bouncing between nodes. Again… Correct me if I’m wrong.
