Price is going UP like crazy in the past few minutes (I guess people relized that It's going to be big once they saw the Crowdfunding) !! https://coinmarketcap.com/assets/maidsafecoin/ , I regret that I didn't buy enough Safecoins , really

To me, MaidSafe places the control of the internet in the hands of everyone.

Are we approaching "no-brainer" territory yet?

If it works it would be the coolest thing imaginable, real, decentralised, digital freedom... too many bells and whistles to even begin listing them.

Let's all just hope they pull it off, if they do it is a (very rare) no-brainer. People will indeed use the round wheel if you invent it. There surely can't be many things that one could be as sure of.

Another good article about this topic on Bitcoin.com

Students from Glasgow University’s computer science wing have initiated a research and development exploratory course with Maidsafe. Academic alumni will develop with the SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network to create next-generation internet applications.

What a great week for Maidsafe/SAFE.

  • Glasgow University to Build dApps With Maidsafe as Part of New Course
  • Maidsafe announced international expansion through "Maidsafe Asia" which is a new joint venture with a Hong Kong company
  • The SAFE API Docs website went live full of code examples and explanation
  • The BttF equity raise just went green meaning that Maidsafe is properly funded for the coming years




We're waiting for the next dev-update where a new demo app will see the light as part of a new dev-tutorial. What it will be? Hard to say, the last time we got an email app.

Quote
We are currently working on integrating the SAFE Beaker Browser8 with the APIs required for the next example app. We are aiming to release the second Dev Tutorial next week

This is all we know so far. Great new week to come.

I just have a question.  How many nodes are there on the MAIDSAFE blockchain? I mean, how many people are keeping the network up?
Also, is there a way to "ping" blockchains to see how many "nods" or active users / wallets they have?

Don't you guys think it would be good to be able to hav a list somewhere of how many nodes all the blockchains have? Can't someone do that, or tell me how?
I would gladly host a website regarding that data. I think its very interesting to  be able to see how many users all the blockchains actually have, or I mean, active constituents, in a comparative chart, as it could shed some light on actual scope of magnitude of the crypto community as a "whole".

Maira there are other currencies toting the same promises of an "internet on its own"
you also have Ethereum doing the same, along with Blocknet (which also has a decentralized crypto exchange) as well well I/O coin which is still in development, although also plans a decentralized exchange, and is also an "internet on its own"

Kim dot Com also plans a Megaupload 2.0 with his Bitcache, which also plans to be an "internet of its own" an internet within the internet, beyond public hackability, sort of like a global private intranet...

I know these are vague statements but that's the general gist of it...

now if only there could be "one ring to access them all and in the cyberspace combine them!"

It sounds like there will be a lot of competition for the hard drive space. I'm assuming that will determine the winner. The internet has a lot of content so to be successful this will need a lot of users.

I just have a question.  How many nodes are there on the MAIDSAFE blockchain? I mean, how many people are keeping the network up?
Also, is there a way to "ping" blockchains to see how many "nods" or active users / wallets they have?

Don't you guys think it would be good to be able to hav a list somewhere of how many nodes all the blockchains have? Can't someone do that, or tell me how?
I would gladly host a website regarding that data. I think its very interesting to  be able to see how many users all the blockchains actually have, or I mean, active constituents, in a comparative chart, as it could shed some light on actual scope of magnitude of the crypto community as a "whole".



SAFE doesn't use a blockchain, that's the big difference with other crypto projects. Think of it as nodes that connect just like BitTorrent but with messages and a cryptocoin implemented. SAFE solves a lot of things at once. So you can share data just like BitTorrent but in this case it's encrypted. You can register a domain just like on the normal internet, but in this case decentralized. You can update data that's stored on the system. At the moment the nodes run locally on a datacentre  Grin but we've had several testnets where we ran nodes from home. This thing scales to 100K users at ease. To a million as well. With Bitcoin you need to have some dedicated hardware to mine coins. On SAFE you just use your computer to deliver data to the network. That's called "Farming" and I think we'll reach a million users quite fast when the network goes to BETA. But first we'll see Alpha 2 and maybe 3. Not really sure.

Any whitepaper to tell the details about the transactions without blochchain? I can't imagine this, cuz this is revolutionary to the blockchain technology. If this is officially launched, the marketcap will be larger than Eth?

Any whitepaper to tell the details about the transactions without blochchain? I can't imagine this, cuz this is revolutionary to the blockchain technology. If this is officially launched, the marketcap will be larger than Eth?

The world did transactions for decades without a blockchain. In SAFE they do use cryptography to change ownership of an address or some data. Think of it this way:

You are in a group with 15 close nodes. You can't pick your own address so the address you have you got from the group. Now you say to them: I own Safecoins at address "HHGTFGHH" and you prove it with a crypto sign. Your close nodes will contact the group responsible for that address to see if that's indeed the case. If your sign is correct the group replies to your close nodes > yes, this person indeed has Safecoins. Next thing you say is > I would like to move 1 Safecoin to address "JGFJVGH". You sign your request and your close nodes will forward to the group responsible for your coins. They will change the ownership of 1 Safecoin to the desired address and send a confirmation back. In reality several other groups are included as well. So let's assume it's 100 people. So 100 people are involved in a transaction. It's signed by all groups.

I know for sure this will work because you are able to register a domain in the DNS (decentralized Name System) as well which works exactly the same way. The domain you create (say safe://mycatwebsite) uses the same mechanism as well. You become the owner of the address that's the hash of your domain so to speak (simple version). So Safecoin transaction are expected to take place under a second. The network allows thousands transactions per second as the network grows. It's all based on ownership. They have several patents and papers as well. Things changed over the years though, here some links:

http://docs.maidsafe.net/Whitepapers/pdf/Safecoin.pdf

https://www.google.com/patents/WO2008065347A2?dq=ininventor:%22David+Irvine%22&cl=en

https://www.google.com/patents/US20100064354

Here's a RFC (Request For Comment) for Safecoin.

https://github.com/maidsafe/rfcs/blob/master/text/0012-safecoin-implementation/0012-safecoin-implementation.md

Here are other active RFC's including the ones currently implemented.

https://github.com/maidsafe/rfcs/blob/master/RFCs-by-status.md#active-rfcs

That's the thing with SAFE/Maidsafe. People see this as another cryptoproject with a coin. It's more than that. It allows for storage, coins, email, chats, downloads, websites and more. Maidsafe just announced a joint venture with a company from Hong Kong (Maidsafe Asia) which will sell these technologies to companies. They run a "local" version of the Safenetwork where all stuff is encrypted even while it can be stored in a datacenter from Amazon. It get un-encrypted in the terminals of the users, but even Amazon can't see what's going on. All they see it nodes that store and deliver encrypted chunks.

Ive been sitting on my MAID since the ICO.

So tempted to just cash in while the price is still dropping. Although I know it will pump again very soon as this project releases its Beta version

This is a really good explanation. The one thing that I want to know is how many users are participating.

I just have a question.  How many nodes are there on the MAIDSAFE blockchain? I mean, how many people are keeping the network up?
Also, is there a way to "ping" blockchains to see how many "nods" or active users / wallets they have?

Don't you guys think it would be good to be able to hav a list somewhere of how many nodes all the blockchains have? Can't someone do that, or tell me how?
I would gladly host a website regarding that data. I think its very interesting to  be able to see how many users all the blockchains actually have, or I mean, active constituents, in a comparative chart, as it could shed some light on actual scope of magnitude of the crypto community as a "whole".



SAFE doesn't use a blockchain, that's the big difference with other crypto projects. Think of it as nodes that connect just like BitTorrent but with messages and a cryptocoin implemented. SAFE solves a lot of things at once. So you can share data just like BitTorrent but in this case it's encrypted. You can register a domain just like on the normal internet, but in this case decentralized. You can update data that's stored on the system. At the moment the nodes run locally on a datacentre  Grin but we've had several testnets where we ran nodes from home. This thing scales to 100K users at ease. To a million as well. With Bitcoin you need to have some dedicated hardware to mine coins. On SAFE you just use your computer to deliver data to the network. That's called "Farming" and I think we'll reach a million users quite fast when the network goes to BETA. But first we'll see Alpha 2 and maybe 3. Not really sure.    

This is a really good explanation. The one thing that I want to know is how many users are participating.

Over 3000 people have tested the Alpha network. This doesn't mean 3000 connected at the same time. So over 3000 clients downloaded the client in the first couple of weeks and connected to the Vaults. In the testnets where we ran Vaults from home I think we had over 1000 now and then. But this was all limited use. Before they deliver Vaults again for people to run from home they have to implement the new routing and the protection against nodes that keep connecting to target a group.

This one is implemented right now: https://github.com/maidsafe/rfcs/blob/master/text/0037-disjoint-groups/0037-disjoint-groups.md
This one should follow in the coming weeks: https://github.com/maidsafe/rfcs/blob/master/text/0029-data-chains.md/0029-data-chains.md
Same for this one: https://github.com/maidsafe/rfcs/blob/master/text/0045-node-ageing/0045-node-ageing.md

Coding this stuff is not the only thing they do, they need to invent and discuss the logic as well. On the Dev Forum you'll see some long discussion about all of these RFC's. At the same time they're delivering API's so external devs can work with the system before it's fully capable. Several projects from external devs are active at the moment.

Token Holder from initial ICO.


I installed launcher/demo app and uploaded some files and it was remarkably fast which was impressive!

Is the most recent demo app encrypting files? Are the files stored on multiple nodes?  I think the nodes are not yet being managed by client "farmer" nodes but rather in a lab somewhere?

How was the valuation for purposes of the recent equity sale determined?  Is there any regulation or safeguards for investors?  Not to be critical but would hate for something to go wrong and give MaidSafe a bad image.

I was hoping Kim DotCom/Mega Upload 2.0 and or Paul Puey/AirBitz would have made a play with MaidSAFE - any thoughts on why they appear to have passed?

Still optimistic for this project!

 
I had a dream that MaidSAFE and Kim DotCom had a press release about using MaidSAFE for MegaUplaod 2 data!

https://letstalkbitcoin.com/blog/post/the-crypto-show-with-kim-dotcom-simon-dixon-and-cody-wilson

They asked Kim about possibility of using MaidSAFE but no specific comment.

Its a no brainier but seems like running in parallel universes....

I will give it a try sometime next week. Does sound like something that needs a lot of dedicated users for it to work. Internet caps would not help.

Yes, everything is encrypted from bit 1. The nodes run indeed in a datacenter but even the owners of the datacenter can't see what's in the packages. Your ISP can't see anything either. The SAFE Mail App is probably the most secure email on the planet at the moment. You don't need to use PGP-keys as all encryption is done in the background.

How much longer will this project take to be completed?
Does anyone know?
