Serious thoughts on MAIDsafe

OK, ive been about this Reddit forum for a while now, have invested in numerous altcoins, lost with numerous altcoins too.
One of those I have not yet sold is the MAIDsafe token, why? Because after years in development it still ain't finished!
I'd like to know, what do you guys think of it? Do you know about it? There is a lot of FUD and bullshit on here relating to the next awesome or crap coin, to which all quite frankly are pump and dump shite, apart from bitcoin.
Is anybody here sitting tight and waiting for these guys (MAIDsafe) to launch the safe network, to then unload there (converted) safecoins? What's your target sell point?
Their forum is always quite busy but around here they seem pretty dead. Are they crap at marketing? Or is it soo old people can't be arsed with it?
I'd be keen to know what others think of it.
Thanks.

Every week we talk about the most interesting coins on the market and pick out the ones which have played their part in our users’ quest for the best results.
Today’s hero is MaidSafeCoin (MAID), held by most of the Top 10 users in this week’s USDT leaderboard.

What is MaidSafeCoin?

Maidsafecoin (MAID) is a decentralized application development platform based on the Bitcoin Blockchain. The Maidsafecoin network forms separate personal computers located all over the world, which provide storage space for network files and computational power for the operation of the Maidsafe network.

What is it used for?

Within the Maidsafe network, there are “money” units that are paid to network members for the provision of their resources. They are called Safecoin. The number of accrued Safecoin depends on different factors: the CPU capacity, the provided memory and the time spent on the network. Safecoin coins are intended exclusively for use within the network, namely for the purchase of Maidsafe services, such as disk space, etc.

What is the best way to invest in SAFE Network?

I'd like to financially invest into the SAFE Network because I think this technology is much needed, however, I'm a bit confused as to what would be the best way to do it at this stage.

Should I buy MAIDSAFE coin? Should I attempt to invest directly into MAIDSAFE company? Should I just wait to buy storage power to farm SAFEcoin on launch?

It seems that investing into MAIDSAFEcoin right now hoping to get SAFEcoin 1:1 down the road might have a few issues. MAIDSAFEcoin is currently worth around $ 0.18 USD per coin. Assuming a single coin is the smallest unit and cannot be divided further, unlike Bitcoin for example, then if the USD price per SAFEcoin significantly rise, wouldn't it means that the simplest storage of data would eventually possibly cost hundreds of dollars? Further assuming that this is the case, I don't see users paying that amount of USD to upload/store a photo for example. Wouldn't that devaluate my investment?
Or let's say I have enough USD to buy 1/10th of the total MAIDSAFEcoin market cap (currently around 85 millions). Without knowing how much more SAFEcoin will come into existence it is difficult to predict what percentage of the SAFEcoin I will be holding from that initial purchase as time goes by. Without knowing the market cap percentage AND the market value, how can I know if that investment is going to gain in value? Especially if both market cap percentage AND market value could go down at the same time.

Serious insight would be greatly appreciated.

SafeNetwork - Secure Access For Everyone (100% privacy, security and anonymity), An Anonymous Secure Decentralized Distributed Autonomous Data Network

Internet is going to be SAFE Network - Secure Access For Everyone (100% privacy, security and
anonymity)
An Anonymous Secure Decentralized Distributed Autonomous Data Network 
Safenet will be a game changer, it can do anything the current internet does, creating and browsing dynamic websites, voice and video chat, email, secure file storage and much more, plus your files literally live on the network until u delete them urself u can also share ur files with others which means the end of torrent and other p2p filesharing apps they will all be replaced with safenet. it's still in alpha state, 1 year from now it will be in release state.

“The SAFE network can provide every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet, from video streaming, encrypted messaging, VOIP, storage and collaboration, exchanges..etc…” Nick Lambert, Chief Operating Officer, MaidSafe
The SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network is made up of the unused hard drive space, processing power and data connection of its users. It offers a level of security and privacy not currently available on the existing Internet and turns the tables on companies, putting users in control of their data, rather than trusting it to organisations. (By providing your unused computing resources to SAFE you will be paid by the network itself (No humans involved) in a network token, called safecoin.)
why is Maidsafe worth paying attention to? In short, Maidsafe aims to radically change the structure of the internet, which, if successful could have enormous implications for both cryptocurrencies and the internet at large.
In this article, we’ll unpack all things Maidsafe and by the end, you’ll know exactly why this company, network, and token should be on your radar.
History of Maidsafe
Maidsafe was originally conceptualized in 2002 by David Irvine but it wasn’t until 2006 that it was officially incorporated. Its genesis is well captured by this quote from an interview with TechCrunch.
“The reason that this project started was a server-based internet is completely against engineering logic.”
From the early days, Irvine was aware that the internet had the utmost potential to be as much of a runaway success as a catastrophe. Maidsafe is his decade-long quest to liberate internet users from control and avert said catastrophe.
Unlike most its contemporaries in the crypto/decentralized network space, Maidsafe has been around since Apple was developing the first iPhone. Not many startups have this type of a timeline but then again, not many startups are trying to fundamentally restructure the internet.
Over the years, the Maidsafe team has been cooking up a smorgasbord of algorithms. They’ve received 20 granted patents (and 12 pending) and run countless test networks. The main interest here is not rehashing a long history but seeing what comes of subsequent Alpha releases.
What is MaidSafe and the SAFE Network?
MaidSafe is a company that is designing and implementing what they call the SAFE Network - a next generation decentralized and secure network. The SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network is a new secure and decentralized data management service that is built by sharing the unused computer resources of the individual network participants.
Each user of the SAFE Network provides a part of their computer resources: data storage space, processing power, and Internet connectivity thus forming a large decentralized network.
The SAFE network puts its user’s safety and security on top of everything else and so the user data is encrypted and broken up into chunks that are spread among the users of the network. The people that participate in it are not actually aware of the data they have been asked to store on their systems, not they have direct access to what it currently stored on their computers.
Furthermore as a user if you share some of your unused computing resources on the SAFE network you are going to be compensated for doing so and get paid in Safecoin crypto tokens.
The SAFE network is not being controlled by a single large entity or a multiple global ones, it is not controlled by anyone in fact as it is decentralized and the users participating are what is essentially building up the network itself. The safenet is based on nature and how insects react to circumstances, through the study and observation of nature and the social structure of ant colonies. These studies have inspired simple yet profound solutions to complex networking issues that are integrated into the core of the SAFE Network allowing the network to be fast, secure, scalable and highly efficient.
Even Maidsafe who created the safenet won’t be able to alter the network to make it less efficient once it is launch. The network won’t allow less efficient upgrades, only ones that would make it better! How crazy is that! So once it is live, you cannot shut it down anymore.
So without people like you, the future user of the network there will be no network. There will be no privacy violations weather you decide to host your own website on the network, visit a website somebody else already made, create or run an application or just provide some of your spare computing resources to help make the SAFE network bigger and stronger.
“The SAFE network is a data and communications network that can provide the infrastructure for every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet” Safenet is currently in alpha testing, this means you can use it and test it but everything is hosted on test nodes at the moment. I created my first website this week and it is amazing.
This is truly mind blowing where we are at now with peer to peer and the possibility are endless. What can we do on the Safe network?
Safenet will evolve as more and more developer create new program for it. But to start with, you will be able to create website that cannot be taken down or censored and upload sensitive files that only you can read from anywhere in the world. There will be video chat like skype, and everything else the current internet can do.
When the full vision is realized, the Safe Network will be a self-managing, self-correcting network. The system will consist of individual nodes (computers) run by normal people who share resources to construct a system that is completely self-contained. As network volume grows, the architecture is designed to evolve independently to handle its growing responsibilities. Data is continuously encrypted and the entire system never stops self-optimizing.
There are a number of different technical features that make all this possible. Here are a few (for a deeper dive, click here):
*LOGIN AND SECURE YOUR DATA WITH NO MIDDLE MAN:No need to give your password to anyone, or ask a third party’s permission to access your data. Your information, and access to it, belongs to you!
“The MaidSafe vision is to replace today's existing server centric and intrusive systems with a fully distributed, safe, secure and private network. A network with no third party being able to intercept, copy, steal, sell or otherwise access the network’s data.”
How much does it cost to use safenet?
Safenet is totally free to use. The only cost is to offer a part of your hard drive to host part of the network. The more you offer, the more you can upload on the network.
What is Safecoin (MAID)?
Safecoin is a digital crypto currency token that is in the heart of the SAFE Network. It can be thought of as the oil in the engine of the SAFE Network, and is used as a way for all users of the network to be compensated for the value they provide.
You can think of Safecoin along the ways that Steem Dollars or Steem Power works on Steemit, you get rewarded these for your contribution on the network in the form of useful and interesting posts as well as voting for others. It is not exactly the same thing, but think along these lines.
SafeCoin Is the fuel that drives MaidSafes adoption and use. Safecoins can be purchased, or they can be earned by Farmers or Builders. They are stored within users wallets and provide access to the networks services and applications, or can be bought and sold on exchanges for bitcoin or cash. Safecoins are being distributed entirely automated with no human intervention by an algorithm.
Only 4.3 billion MaidSafeCoins will ever be in circulation at one time and each coin will have its own unique identity. Furthermore Safecoins will be "recycled" when they are being exchanged for network services, so there will be a new supply of coins for users to earn.
Safecoins are given to users in return for them providing some of their unused computing resource to the network. These include free storage space, processing power, and Internet connectivity, this process of providing your resource and earning Safecoin in return on the platform is referred to as "Farming". You can think of this as the "mining" for SafeCoin if you are a crypto currency mining, but instead of using only CPU or GPU power to help sustain the network you are sharing parts of your computing resources to be used by the network, so the SAFE network uses Proof of Resource "mining".
“Farmers” provide their unused computing resources to the network. The more they provide, the more they are paid. they can also contribute more than just space, They can contribute processor power as well which will be used as a Network Based Replacement for Server-Side Processing, so low spec devices (e.g. smart phones) would have no problem using apps that require huge processing power, it will also be convenient for universities and some institutions doing scientific computation (no need to buy expensive mainframes anymore they could just use safenetwork, which would be cheaper and faster)
“Builders” are the application developers. They can earn Safecoin in two different ways. Firstly, they can design applications, and the more an App is used the more they are paid. Secondly, they can assist with bug fixes and new features, which in turn strengthens the core of the SAFE network.
What is PtP (Pay the Producer)? It's a proposed feature to reward anyone who PUTS (uploads) public content with their wallet address (watermark). When data chunks are requested via GETS, the SAFE Network rewards the wallet address associated to those chunks. In simple terms, the more popular your content (video, music, art, games, APPS, etc) is requested by clients, the more rewards you earn. The reward can be Safecoin, or SAFE GB, Divided Safecoin, or some other variation, Pay the Producer rewards are network rewards and not paid for by the user.
Pay the producer reward is determined independently of the farmer's reward. It does not reduce the farmer's reward if a "pay-the-producer" pay address is associated to the chunks (content), At this time pay the producer will only be for public content.
.....................................
The SAFE Network is going to compete with and complement the Internet that we love to hate today. Instead of data being relatively open and accessible, the SAFE Network has been designed to securely encrypt all data within the network. This will make privacy the default. If users want their information to be public that is of course no problem, but the way the network is designed, users will have to opt-out of privacy.
This will be a completely brand new grassroots Internet. The massive privately owned server farms that own the data of today’s internet will be replaced by a decentralized network of computers that encrypt user’s files and divide them into many small parts that are duplicated and stored in many places all around the world.
Anyone can join the network anonymously by donating a portion of their hard drive space, computing power and bandwidth.
For contributing their computing resources, the users will receive safecoins and in order to use the computing resources of the network, users will need to have and spend safecoins.
The SAFE Network will be able to do everything the Internet does today, but because it has such a different infrastructure, it will do it in a different way.
Here is a short list of some of the benefits of this restructuring: Denial of service attacks will be useless, in fact the more people use the same websites, the better they will perform.
Cloud storage will be completely private, relatively cheap and always accessible.
Messages, email, and VOIP will be encrypted by default.
Websites will never experience downtime and cannot be censored.
Social networks’ data will be owned by the users and they can choose who has access to it.
Mass surveillance on this network will be impossible; no one will be able to collect your browsing data.
Underutilized computing resources can be monetized.
Direct micropayment channels will be built in, so content producers will not have to advertise to their audience to raise funds. ................................................................................................................. This network is something that will make youtube, twitter, facebook and all those big corporations that are misusing your data and privacy go broke
it also pays you according to the popularity of your public content, there is gonna be an app called SafeTube which is something like youtube with monetization but with no more self censoring fearing demonitization, since the network does the paying by itself, there is no more human bullshit involved, the more views your videos have the more u get paid in safecoin u can then exchange safecoin for $$$ on the SafeExchange App with the people or companies that want to upload to the network but don't have the time or resources to farm safecoin themselves (Downloading Content Is Free For Everyone, only uploading costs you safecoins)

MaidSafe Due diligence questions

1) I keep seeing anonymity this and anonymity that regarding MaidSafe however I'm not understanding how that's really possible, isn't your IP still basically giving you away on the MaidSafe network? This isn't tor-based, right?
2) it seems like out of all non-bitcoin cryptos MaidSafe has the largest potential since it's basically creating a whole separate and supposedly private and uncensorable internet however how exactly do the coins get demand and where is the supply of coins coming from?
3) I keep seeing you guys saying that corporate centralized cloud-based systems will be screwed by MaidSafe's technology but again how will cloud users even go about using MaidSafe as a cloud-based storage?
4) this 'seems' like a killer app for crypto if it works and could make all existing cloud offerings antiquated instantly, so I'm curious why aren't there more competitors besides Storj and Ethereum? I mean if this takes away Amazon's cloud business that's $6b annually, so why aren't they themselves building a MaidSafe-type crypto (rhetorical question since we pretty much know what Amazon thinks of crypto).
Thanks JL
Edit: bought a ton of Maidsafe. Thanks for the answers!

How do you store your (maid)safecoins safe and secure?

Hey guys,
I'm trying to figure out the best way to store my (maid)safecoins, preferably offline because I don't want risk loosing my coins to a crash/scam/robbery of the exchange where they're stored right now.
I read about it a couple of weeks ago and it seemed the best way to do it was with the masterchest wallet. I thought I would transfer my coins from masterexchange to my "offline" wallet in the masterchest app for windows and keep everything stored offline and save (with several backups).
Apparently masterchest wallet is not being supported anymore and they refer to omniwallet, which apparently is still in beta and also online. The phrase "we were able to keep all userdata with the latest update" doesn't instill too much confidence I have to say. Besides, the fact that I'm just transferring my coins from one online storage to another doesn't really make sense for me.
So, my question is: How do you guys store your (maid)safecoins right now?

What can I do with Safecoin

Completely noob question, but assuming I buy some safecoin what can I do with them? What are they good for? Why should I buy them?
Are they/will they be similar to bitcoin in that I can buy things with them? Other than helping to fund the project I don't see what use they have.

For contributing their computing resources, the users will receive safecoins and in order to use the computing resources of the network, users will need to have and spend safecoins.
The SAFE Network will be able to do everything the Internet does today, but because it has such a different infrastructure, it will do it in a different way.
Here is a short list of some of the benefits of this restructuring: Denial of service attacks will be useless, in fact the more people use the same websites, the better they will perform.
Cloud storage will be completely private, relatively cheap and always accessible.
Messages, email, and VOIP will be encrypted by default.
Websites will never experience downtime and cannot be censored.
Social networks’ data will be owned by the users and they can choose who has access to it.
Mass surveillance on this network will be impossible; no one will be able to collect your browsing data.
Underutilized computing resources can be monetized.
Direct micropayment channels will be built in, so content producers will not have to advertise to their audience to raise funds. ................................................................................................................. This network is something that will make youtube, twitter, facebook and all those big corporations that are misusing your data and privacy go broke
it also pays you according to the popularity of your public content, there is gonna be an app called SafeTube which is something like youtube with monetization but with no more self censoring fearing demonitization, since the network does the paying by itself, there is no more human bullshit involved, the more views your videos have the more u get paid in safecoin u can then exchange safecoin for $$$ on the SafeExchange App with the people or companies that want to upload to the network but don't have the time or resources to farm safecoin themselves (Downloading Content Is Free For Everyone, only uploading costs you safecoins)

Maidsafe investment

Hi all,
I'm new to reddit and to this sub as well. Would like to hear your opinion on this matter. My wife's cousin back in Malaysia works for a company called CCP. It is an electronic trading group that deals in cyptocurrency.
I got curious so I went to see one of her presentation to find out what is she doing and to my surprise, they are introducing Maidsafe coin to everyone.
It was quite a smart presentation because at first, she address the crowd of 20 young people that she is talking to potential millionaires of the future. She then proceed to give a little bit of history in regards to cryptocurrency and talked about bitcoin's history on how it was around around $0.01 when it was launched and now it has risen to more than $1000. She then proceeds to tell a story about how a lady in China became a millionaire from it. She then talks about potentially turning back time and investing in a different currency with is maidsafe. It is now at $0.18 per coin at the moment and has the potential to increase exponentially.
After that, the presentation was about Maidsafe decentralizing the internet. She kept emphasizing that something big will happen this June ( the launch ) and people have to act quick and invest in their company. I couldn't find out much about her company apart from a few video clips about them on the internet and this is one of them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nAz_9bZTFc
I have my doubts about her comparing bitcoins and safecoins and about her pushing her sales. There are about 50 "agents" working in that company in Malaysia and they have been pushing sales for a few months now. My wife's cousin have been living life large, buying branded stuff and posting it on the net.
Would like you guys's opinion on this matter thanks! What do you guys think about having agents pushing the sale of Maidsafe coins everywhere in Asian countries?

Safenet will rule them all ...... Secure Access For Everyone (100% privacy, security and anonymity)

Internet is going to be SAFE Network - Secure Access For Everyone (100% privacy, security and
anonymity)
An Anonymous Secure Decentralized Distributed Autonomous Data Network 
Safenet will be a game changer, it can do anything the current internet does, creating and browsing dynamic websites, voice and video chat, email, secure file storage and much more, plus your files literally live on the network until u delete them urself u can also share ur files with others which means the end of torrent and other p2p filesharing apps they will all be replaced with safenet. it's still in alpha state, 1 year from now it will be in release state.
Try alpha 2: https://maidsafe.net/ (Right now u need an invitation token, read their forum)
More Info: https://www.alexfortin.com/maidsafe-safenet-the-new-internet/ https://steemit.com/maidsafe/@cryptos/what-is-maidsafe-safe-network-safecoin-and-why-it-is-exploding-now
Frequently asked questions(Safenet Wiki):
https://safenetwork.wiki/en/FAQ (Read the wiki to understand how it works....) https://safenetwork.wiki/
Safenet forum: https://safenetforum.org
Decentralized apps Developers are starting to build apps that use the SAFE API. https://apps.safenetwork.org/
“The SAFE network can provide every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet, from video streaming, encrypted messaging, VOIP, storage and collaboration, exchanges..etc…” Nick Lambert, Chief Operating Officer, MaidSafe
What is MaidSafe and the SAFE Network?
MaidSafe is a company that is designing and implementing what they call the SAFE Network - a next generation decentralized and secure network. The SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network is a new secure and decentralized data management service that is built by sharing the unused computer resources of the individual network participants.
Each user of the SAFE Network provides a part of their computer resources: data storage space, processing power, and Internet connectivity thus forming a large decentralized network.
The SAFE network puts its user’s safety and security on top of everything else and so the user data is encrypted and broken up into chunks that are spread among the users of the network. The people that participate in it are not actually aware of the data they have been asked to store on their systems, not they have direct access to what it currently stored on their computers.
Furthermore as a user if you share some of your unused computing resources on the SAFE network you are going to be compensated for doing so and get paid in Safecoin crypto tokens.
The SAFE network is not being controlled by a single large entity or a multiple global ones, it is not controlled by anyone in fact as it is decentralized and the users participating are what is essentially building up the network itself. The safenet is based on nature and how insects react to circumstances.
Even Maidsafe who created the safenet won’t be able to alter the network to make it less efficient once it is launch. The network won’t allow less efficient upgrades, only ones that would make it better! How crazy is that! So once it is live, you cannot shut it down anymore.
So without people like you, the future user of the network there will be no network. There will be no privacy violations weather you decide to host your own website on the network, visit a website somebody else already made, create or run an application or just provide some of your spare computing resources to help make the SAFE network bigger and stronger.
“The SAFE network is a data and communications network that can provide the infrastructure for every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet” Safenet is currently in alpha testing, this means you can use it and test it but everything is hosted on test nodes at the moment. I created my first website this week and it is amazing.
This is truly mind blowing where we are at now with peer to peer and the possibility are endless. What can we do on the Safe network?
Safenet will evolve as more and more developer create new program for it. But to start with, you will be able to create website that cannot be taken down or censored and upload sensitive files that only you can read from anywhere in the world. There will be video chat like skype, and everything else the current internet can do.
“The MaidSafe vision is to replace today's existing server centric and intrusive systems with a fully distributed, safe, secure and private network. A network with no third party being able to intercept, copy, steal, sell or otherwise access the network’s data.”
How much does it cost to use safenet?
Safenet is totally free to use. The only cost is to offer a part of your hard drive to host part of the network. The more you offer, the more you can upload on the network.
What is Safecoin (MAID)?
Safecoin is a digital crypto currency token that is in the heart of the SAFE Network. It can be thought of as the oil in the engine of the SAFE Network, and is used as a way for all users of the network to be compensated for the value they provide.
You can think of Safecoin along the ways that Steem Dollars or Steem Power works on Steemit, you get rewarded these for your contribution on the network in the form of useful and interesting posts as well as voting for others. It is not exactly the same thing, but think along these lines.
SafeCoin Is the fuel that drives MaidSafes adoption and use. Safecoins can be purchased, or they can be earned by Farmers or Builders. They are stored within users wallets and provide access to the networks services and applications, or can be bought and sold on exchanges for bitcoin or cash. Safecoins are being distributed entirely automated with no human intervention by an algorithms.
Only 4.3 billion MaidSafeCoins will ever be in circulation at one time and each coin will have its own unique identity. Furthermore Safecoins will be "recycled" when they are being exchanged for network services, so there will be a new supply of coins for users to earn.
Safecoins are given to users in return for them providing some of their unused computing resource to the network. These include free storage space, processing power, and Internet connectivity, this process of providing your resource and earning Safecoin in return on the platform is referred to as "Farming". You can think of this as the "mining" for SafeCoin if you are a crypto currency mining, but instead of using only CPU or GPU power to help sustain the network you are sharing parts of your computing resources to be used by the network, so the SAFE network uses Proof of Resource "mining".
“Farmers” provide their unused computing resources to the network. The more they provide, the more they are paid. they can also contribute more than just space, They can contribute processor power as well which will be used as a Network Based Replacement for Server-Side Processing, so low spec devices (e.g. smart phones) would have no problem using apps that require huge processing power, it will also be convenient for universities and some institutions doing scientific computation (no need to buy expensive mainframes anymore they could just use safenetwork, which would be cheaper and faster)
“Builders” are the application developers. They can earn Safecoin in two different ways. Firstly, they can design applications, and the more an App is used the more they are paid. Secondly, they can assist with bug fixes and new features, which in turn strengthens the core of the SAFE network.
What is PtP (Pay the Producer)? It's a proposed feature to reward anyone who PUTS (uploads) public content with their wallet address (watermark). When data chunks are requested via GETS, the SAFE Network rewards the wallet address associated to those chunks. In simple terms, the more popular your content (video, music, art, games, APPS, etc) is requested by clients, the more rewards you earn. The reward can be Safecoin, or SAFE GB, Divided Safecoin, or some other variation, Pay the Producer rewards are network rewards and not paid for by the user.
Pay the producer reward is determined independently of the farmer's reward. It does not reduce the farmer's reward if a "pay-the-producer" pay address is associated to the chunks (content), At this time pay the producer will only be for public content.
.....................................
The SAFE Network is going to compete with and complement the Internet that we love to hate today. Instead of data being relatively open and accessible, the SAFE Network has been designed to securely encrypt all data within the network. This will make privacy the default. If users want their information to be public that is of course no problem, but the way the network is designed, users will have to opt-out of privacy.
This will be a completely brand new grassroots Internet. The massive privately owned server farms that own the data of today’s internet will be replaced by a decentralized network of computers that encrypt user’s files and divide them into many small parts that are duplicated and stored in many places all around the world.
Anyone can join the network anonymously by donating a portion of their hard drive space, computing power and bandwidth.

“The SAFE network can provide every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet, from video streaming, encrypted messaging, VOIP, storage and collaboration, exchanges..etc…” Nick Lambert, Chief Operating Officer, MaidSafe
The SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network is made up of the unused hard drive space, processing power and data connection of its users. It offers a level of security and privacy not currently available on the existing Internet and turns the tables on companies, putting users in control of their data, rather than trusting it to organisations. (By providing your unused computing resources to SAFE you will be paid by the network itself (No humans involved) in a network token, called safecoin.)
why is Maidsafe worth paying attention to? In short, Maidsafe aims to radically change the structure of the internet, which, if successful could have enormous implications for both cryptocurrencies and the internet at large.
In this article, we’ll unpack all things Maidsafe and by the end, you’ll know exactly why this company, network, and token should be on your radar.
History of Maidsafe
Maidsafe was originally conceptualized in 2002 by David Irvine but it wasn’t until 2006 that it was officially incorporated. Its genesis is well captured by this quote from an interview with TechCrunch.
“The reason that this project started was a server-based internet is completely against engineering logic.”
From the early days, Irvine was aware that the internet had the utmost potential to be as much of a runaway success as a catastrophe. Maidsafe is his decade-long quest to liberate internet users from control and avert said catastrophe.
Unlike most its contemporaries in the crypto/decentralized network space, Maidsafe has been around since Apple was developing the first iPhone. Not many startups have this type of a timeline but then again, not many startups are trying to fundamentally restructure the internet.
Over the years, the Maidsafe team has been cooking up a smorgasbord of algorithms. They’ve received 20 granted patents (and 12 pending) and run countless test networks. The main interest here is not rehashing a long history but seeing what comes of subsequent Alpha releases.
What is MaidSafe and the SAFE Network?
MaidSafe is a company that is designing and implementing what they call the SAFE Network - a next generation decentralized and secure network. The SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network is a new secure and decentralized data management service that is built by sharing the unused computer resources of the individual network participants.

The people that participate in it are not actually aware of the data they have been asked to store on their systems, not they have direct access to what it currently stored on their computers.
Furthermore as a user if you share some of your unused computing resources on the SAFE network you are going to be compensated for doing so and get paid in Safecoin crypto tokens.
The SAFE network is not being controlled by a single large entity or a multiple global ones, it is not controlled by anyone in fact as it is decentralized and the users participating are what is essentially building up the network itself. The safenet is based on nature and how insects react to circumstances, through the study and observation of nature and the social structure of ant colonies. These studies have inspired simple yet profound solutions to complex networking issues that are integrated into the core of the SAFE Network allowing the network to be fast, secure, scalable and highly efficient.
Even Maidsafe who created the safenet won’t be able to alter the network to make it less efficient once it is launch. The network won’t allow less efficient upgrades, only ones that would make it better! How crazy is that! So once it is live, you cannot shut it down anymore.
So without people like you, the future user of the network there will be no network.

But to start with, you will be able to create website that cannot be taken down or censored and upload sensitive files that only you can read from anywhere in the world. There will be video chat like skype, and everything else the current internet can do.
When the full vision is realized, the Safe Network will be a self-managing, self-correcting network. The system will consist of individual nodes (computers) run by normal people who share resources to construct a system that is completely self-contained. As network volume grows, the architecture is designed to evolve independently to handle its growing responsibilities. Data is continuously encrypted and the entire system never stops self-optimizing.
There are a number of different technical features that make all this possible. Here are a few (for a deeper dive, click here):
*LOGIN AND SECURE YOUR DATA WITH NO MIDDLE MAN:No need to give your password to anyone, or ask a third party’s permission to access your data. Your information, and access to it, belongs to you!
“The MaidSafe vision is to replace today's existing server centric and intrusive systems with a fully distributed, safe, secure and private network. A network with no third party being able to intercept, copy, steal, sell or otherwise access the network’s data.”
How much does it cost to use safenet?
Safenet is totally free to use. The only cost is to offer a part of your hard drive to host part of the network. The more you offer, the more you can upload on the network. (Downloading Content Is Free For Everyone, only uploading costs you safecoins)

If users want their information to be public that is of course no problem, but the way the network is designed, users will have to opt-out of privacy.
This will be a completely brand new grassroots Internet. The massive privately owned server farms that own the data of today’s internet will be replaced by a decentralized network of computers that encrypt user’s files and divide them into many small parts that are duplicated and stored in many places all around the world.
Anyone can join the network anonymously by donating a portion of their hard drive space, computing power and bandwidth.
For contributing their computing resources, the users will receive safecoins and in order to use the computing resources of the network, users will need to have and spend safecoins.
The SAFE Network will be able to do everything the Internet does today, but because it has such a different infrastructure, it will do it in a different way.
Here is a short list of some of the benefits of this restructuring: Denial of service attacks will be useless, in fact the more people use the same websites, the better they will perform.
Cloud storage will be completely private, relatively cheap and always accessible.
Messages, email, and VOIP will be encrypted by default.
Websites will never experience downtime and cannot be censored.
Social networks’ data will be owned by the users and they can choose who has access to it.
Mass surveillance on this network will be impossible; no one will be able to collect your browsing data.
Underutilized computing resources can be monetized.
Direct micropayment channels will be built in, so content producers will not have to advertise to their audience to raise funds. ................................................................................................................. This network is something that will make youtube, twitter, facebook and all those big corporations that are misusing your data and privacy go broke
it also pays you according to the popularity of your public content, there is gonna be an app called SafeTube which is something like youtube with monetization but with no more self censoring fearing demonitization, since the network does the paying by itself, there is no more human bullshit involved, the more views your videos have the more u get paid in safecoin u can then exchange safecoin for $$$ on the SafeExchange App with the people or companies that want to upload to the network but don't have the time or resources to farm safecoin themselves (Downloading Content Is Free For Everyone, only uploading costs you safecoins)

What's the use of MaidSafeCoin in the MaidSafe Network?

Actually, i have a lot of other questions regarding MaidSafeCoin, however, when i saw the main video about MadeSafe it was "clear" to me that the MaidSafe Network didn't need any CryptoC, so:
Why do we need MaidSafeCoin?
What are the strong properties of MaidSafeCoin to compete against other CryptoC's like Bitcoin or Zerocash?
And... how does it actually work? Is there any whitepaper i can read?
I mainly want to know if MaidSafeCoin is a currency designed as a innovative coin or as a way to support the MaidSafe development.
Since people seem to have invested heavily in this coin i'm sure you will find this questions entretaining.
I know there is a forum about it, but reddit seemed like a good place to chat about it.

Will we be able to create a better digital currency than Bitcoin or any other altcoins using Maidsafe?

Bitcoins and other blockchain technologies are the best digital currencies right now but they still have certain things that could be considered weaknesses like 10 minute confirmation times, centralization of mining, large storage space needed to run a full node, inefficient use of electricity etc. I understand it's possible to build applications on top of Maidsafe. Could someone with a more technical understanding of Maidsafe tell me if it's possible to build a digital currency on the Maidsafe network that solves some of these problems? It seems like if this is possible, it could potentially make things like Etherium, sidechains, treechains etc obsolete.

Safecoin creation and creating other currencies?

After reading the safecoin description, I'm still much confused about how coins are created. Does the maidsafe foundation keep some sort of private key that can create new coins? How does the crypto around this work? Does it mean you could also build another currency based on the maidsafe network?

OmniWallet & Buying MaidSafecoin

Hi,
I want to buy some MaidSafecoin. Is the safest way to do this is by purchasing bitcoin in coinwallet, sending it to Omniwallet and buying Maidsafe coin there?
Which is the best/safest way? Will Omniwallet be enough?
Thanks for helping this NOOB investor :)

According to MaidSafeCoin's white paper BTC's distribution is arbitrary

In their white paper (http://docs.maidsafe.net/Whitepapers/pdf/Safecoin.pdf) MaidSafe claim's that their Safecoin token is, in contrast to BTC, not distributed arbitrary;
"Unlike many cryptocurrencies, whose creation is not backed by anything, the distribution of safecoin is backed by data. The generation of safecoin is entirely network led and they are only created as the network is used and data retrieved from network nodes. This activity is in contrast to currencies like bitcoin, whose coin distribution is arbitrarily set to 10 minute blocks."
But as BTC are similarly only distributed if transactions have taken place this claim doesn't make sense, right?

Safenet will rule them all ...... Secure Access For Everyone (100% privacy, security and anonymity) a network that pays the contributors

Internet is going to be SAFE Network - Secure Access For Everyone (100% privacy, security and
anonymity)
An Anonymous Secure Decentralized Distributed Autonomous Data Network 
Safenet will be a game changer, it can do anything the current internet does, creating and browsing dynamic websites, voice and video chat, email, secure file storage and much more, plus your files literally live on the network until u delete them urself u can also share ur files with others which means the end of torrent and other p2p filesharing apps they will all be replaced with safenet. it's still in alpha state, 1 year from now it will be in release state.
Try alpha 2: https://maidsafe.net/ (Right now u need an invitation token, read their forum)

Frequently asked questions(Safenet Wiki):

Decentralized apps Developers are starting to build apps that use the SAFE API. https://apps.safenetwork.org/
“The SAFE network can provide every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet, from video streaming, encrypted messaging, VOIP, storage and collaboration, exchanges..etc…” Nick Lambert, Chief Operating Officer, MaidSafe
What is MaidSafe and the SAFE Network?
MaidSafe is a company that is designing and implementing what they call the SAFE Network - a next generation decentralized and secure network. The SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network is a new secure and decentralized data management service that is built by sharing the unused computer resources of the individual network participants.
Each user of the SAFE Network provides a part of their computer resources: data storage space, processing power, and Internet connectivity thus forming a large decentralized network.
The SAFE network puts its user’s safety and security on top of everything else and so the user data is encrypted and broken up into chunks that are spread among the users of the network. The people that participate in it are not actually aware of the data they have been asked to store on their systems, not they have direct access to what it currently stored on their computers.
Furthermore as a user if you share some of your unused computing resources on the SAFE network you are going to be compensated for doing so and get paid in Safecoin crypto tokens.
The SAFE network is not being controlled by a single large entity or a multiple global ones, it is not controlled by anyone in fact as it is decentralized and the users participating are what is essentially building up the network itself. The safenet is based on nature and how insects react to circumstances.
Even Maidsafe who created the safenet won’t be able to alter the network to make it less efficient once it is launch. The network won’t allow less efficient upgrades, only ones that would make it better! How crazy is that! So once it is live, you cannot shut it down anymore.
So without people like you, the future user of the network there will be no network. There will be no privacy violations weather you decide to host your own website on the network, visit a website somebody else already made, create or run an application or just provide some of your spare computing resources to help make the SAFE network bigger and stronger.
“The SAFE network is a data and communications network that can provide the infrastructure for every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet” Safenet is currently in alpha testing, this means you can use it and test it but everything is hosted on test nodes at the moment. I created my first website this week and it is amazing.
This is truly mind blowing where we are at now with peer to peer and the possibility are endless. What can we do on the Safe network?
Safenet will evolve as more and more developer create new program for it. But to start with, you will be able to create website that cannot be taken down or censored and upload sensitive files that only you can read from anywhere in the world. There will be video chat like skype, and everything else the current internet can do.
“The MaidSafe vision is to replace today's existing server centric and intrusive systems with a fully distributed, safe, secure and private network. A network with no third party being able to intercept, copy, steal, sell or otherwise access the network’s data.”
How much does it cost to use safenet?
Safenet is totally free to use. The only cost is to offer a part of your hard drive to host part of the network. The more you offer, the more you can upload on the network.
What is Safecoin (MAID)?
Safecoin is a digital crypto currency token that is in the heart of the SAFE Network. It can be thought of as the oil in the engine of the SAFE Network, and is used as a way for all users of the network to be compensated for the value they provide.
You can think of Safecoin along the ways that Steem Dollars or Steem Power works on Steemit, you get rewarded these for your contribution on the network in the form of useful and interesting posts as well as voting for others. It is not exactly the same thing, but think along these lines.
SafeCoin Is the fuel that drives MaidSafes adoption and use. Safecoins can be purchased, or they can be earned by Farmers or Builders. They are stored within users wallets and provide access to the networks services and applications, or can be bought and sold on exchanges for bitcoin or cash. Safecoins are being distributed entirely automated with no human intervention by an algorithms.
Only 4.3 billion MaidSafeCoins will ever be in circulation at one time and each coin will have its own unique identity. Furthermore Safecoins will be "recycled" when they are being exchanged for network services, so there will be a new supply of coins for users to earn.
Safecoins are given to users in return for them providing some of their unused computing resource to the network. These include free storage space, processing power, and Internet connectivity, this process of providing your resource and earning Safecoin in return on the platform is referred to as "Farming". You can think of this as the "mining" for SafeCoin if you are a crypto currency mining, but instead of using only CPU or GPU power to help sustain the network you are sharing parts of your computing resources to be used by the network, so the SAFE network uses Proof of Resource "mining".
“Farmers” provide their unused computing resources to the network. The more they provide, the more they are paid. they can also contribute more than just space, They can contribute processor power as well which will be used as a Network Based Replacement for Server-Side Processing, so low spec devices (e.g. smart phones) would have no problem using apps that require huge processing power, it will also be convenient for universities and some institutions doing scientific computation (no need to buy expensive mainframes anymore they could just use safenetwork, which would be cheaper and faster)
“Builders” are the application developers. They can earn Safecoin in two different ways. Firstly, they can design applications, and the more an App is used the more they are paid. Secondly, they can assist with bug fixes and new features, which in turn strengthens the core of the SAFE network.
What is PtP (Pay the Producer)? It's a proposed feature to reward anyone who PUTS (uploads) public content with their wallet address (watermark). When data chunks are requested via GETS, the SAFE Network rewards the wallet address associated to those chunks. In simple terms, the more popular your content (video, music, art, games, APPS, etc) is requested by clients, the more rewards you earn. The reward can be Safecoin, or SAFE GB, Divided Safecoin, or some other variation, Pay the Producer rewards are network rewards and not paid for by the user.
Pay the producer reward is determined independently of the farmer's reward. It does not reduce the farmer's reward if a "pay-the-producer" pay address is associated to the chunks (content), At this time pay the producer will only be for public content.
