so I was reading this very good post on what markets might adopt the SAFE network : Market Research on market size and growth
It came up that the top 100 torrents are like 150GB of total data but account for at least 450TB of data transfer. Now correct me if I am wrong but it is my understanding safecoin goes into the farmer pool based on the size of your put but farmers get paid based on how many get requests they fulfill. There seems to be a large imbalance here where some data might have a much lower price to put compared to how much will be paid out to farmers for get requests of it. Is there a way that this gets balanced out or is it like one big communism and everyone basically is always picking up the slack of these leaches?
I mean that’s how torrents work and somehow its still worth it for a small percentage of people to pay for a mob of leachers so maybe the issue is null? It’s a bit different in that there the “farmers” are being taken advantage of, but on the SAFE network they will be paid fairly, its the end user that might get taken advantage of. I mean it’s really a question of if a person who buys safecoin and then storage space on the network is still getting a utility that outweighs their costs. I mean for the guy that just puts some pics of his family there for them and him to get at most every couple months. It might be that there is some communism in there and its not the very BEST price but its still one the user is willing to accept for what they get.
Don’t get me wrong… I want the SAFE network to be my source for free porn… but I want it to be done in a sustainable way that doesn’t take an unfair share of network resources from other people that are also paying for them.
