I don’t claim any expertise, but…
I totally see that if the masses switch onto to the SAFE network and away from the WWW…
…and Safecoin (with its no-wait transactions, and is COMPLETELY untrackable / anonymous by default) is just there for them, waiting to be used…
People will start accepting it for wayyyy more goods and services than Bitcoin has ever been used for… And possibly, for EVERYTHING.
It is truly built to be the most heavily used, secure, global currency we have ever seen.
I have no doubt it will take over currency, as long as everything here with MaidSafe is implemented correctly.
They say the internet is growing from connecting only 2 billion people in 2012 to 5 billion in 2020 (imagine all the poor kids and families in Africa / India / China with smartphones these days) and this is a true currency that can facilitate this completely new economic scene.
Bitcoin, with its ever-growing blockchain, lame @$$ wait times for transactions (I HATE THAT!!! WHY SHOULD I WAIT 10 MINUTES AT THE CHECKOUT LINE FOR MY PAYMENT TO CLEAR?!?!??!!) etc., simply isn’t built for where we are heading.
Safecoin, on the other hand, is.
David Irvine is so very far thinking, i can’t even begin to believe it.
Maybe Bitcoin will stay around as a cool decentralized way to handle titles, ownership and other things I don’t really understand,
But safecoin could totally wreck it, currency-wise.
It’s simply built to be the best monetary tool for this day in age, with the global state of today, and of tomorrow
