I’ve kind of asked this before, but wanted to make a dedicated thread. No pressure, just a thought I wanted to articulate again.
Since the MaidSafe company has grown over time, would there be enough people (or maybe only one person) who could make not an alpha, not a beta, but a “Zeta” network that is basically a completely bare-bones MVP of the core features? Perhaps the most important is one with Zeta-SafeCoin, so people will get excited, earn sustainable income, and therefore be able to dedicate time to decentralized SAFE projects. This is what it takes to tap into the tens of millions of programmers out there.
It doesn’t have to be pretty. It doesn’t even have to be impressive. It just has to be slow, decentralized, ugly code, but allow people to make Alpha 2 style apps and earn some sort of token from it.
From there the whole world might wake up to SAFE, at least in a small way, in random pockets of the world, and the project could actually start influencing people’s lives, and spark their minds.
The project could take on a real life of its own, development could take things in many progressive directions, and MaidSafe could continue on theirs with less pressure.
Just what we have right now could be rigged up nicely enough, adding in the token. We already have the functional community net.
If any of my apps could even earn fake Zeta-SafeCoin, I for one would be able to get more excited and put more of my life straight into it, and have that time be justified. I’m sure others as well. Even Rust Engineers Some sort of exchange rate would emerge, even if it’s hilarious at the very beginning. Everything is.
