As you know, I’m not technical, but was just thinking that a sistercoin on the Master Protocol may be a handy thing to have. My reasoning is that if it might address any future issues, act as a hedge or fall back, or provide utility and there is little (nothing I can see) on the down-side, then common sense says we should do it; I just though people could suggest down-sides or why definitely won’t be needed.
Potential areas that I can foresee this could address are voting mechanism,(retains Safecoin anonymity, gives blockxhain accountability) Safecoin value hedge, alternative approach to crowd funding perhaps etc – more I’m sure.
My thinking is that when Maidsafe are Burnt for Safecoin – an equal amount of the new coin are sent back – this would seem to be the optimum and only feasible time to do this as far as I can see. This way we know an equal amount of sistercoin has been spread out amongst the original investors. The coins will be free and have no discernable value – and Omni owe us one don’t they?
Anyway, feel free to club me to death, but the equation appears to be whichever is greater – potential upsides or potential down-sides. I’d be interested to hear others views on this.
