I’ve known about this project for years but never delved into it very deeply. From an outside perspective as a layman, it seems to me like Safe Network will have the properties of all those networks mentioned in the title and have them in one integrated package. If it works and becomes successful, will it out compete those other networks or are they irreplaceable? There’s the old saying from the Unix community which says, “Do one thing and do it well.” Does that logic apply here?
I have another question. Will it inherit the problems of those 3 networks?
With Tor, your browsing activity can be revealed if your exit node isn’t honest.
With IPFS, dynamic content is impossible to implement, although I’ve read that IPNS can help address this issue.
With Bitcoin, it has a scalability problem, but it might be solved with a 2nd layer solution like Lightning. However, this may not apply to the Safe Network since it uses a DHT and not a blockchain. That said, would there be scalability and security issues with a DHT?
Thanks for your responses.
