The SAFE Network is a secure data storage and communication platform, owned by users then no government or companies will be able to control it. Instead of relying on servers that are operated by companies and can be shut down or censored, so anyone can join by installing the SAFE software and creating an account, apps or develop a website. No personal information is shared with the network.
1. SAFE is being developed by Scottish company MaidSafe. It is currently in testing mode.
Here is an example of working app.
2. MaidSafeCoin is a token that was created in a crowdsale in 2014 to support the project (SAFE Network). It can not be farmed (mined) – 4.3 billion MAID limit.
3. MaidSafeCoin is based on the Omni protocol and can be stored as offline in a hardware wallet as well as online in an Omniwallet.
4. When the SAFE Network goes live you will be able to mine Safecoin by offering CPU and storage to the network. It’s very simple because there is no blockchain and no proof-of-work so safecoin will be used to buy storage and services on SAFE Network, and paid to people providing resources to the network by farming.
5. When the SAFE Network launches, MaidSafeCoin will be converted to the network’s cryptocurrency Safecoin on a 1:1 basis.
8. Data stored on the network is either Public or Private, if you want to publish a
safewebsite design it offline then upload the files and folders using the Demo App to the Public area, by the way you can also help MaidSafe debug the system by running a Vault9 to store an encrypted file fragments.
9. App developers may also be paid for their work.
10. SAFE Core is mostly written in Rust.
The goal of Rust is to be a language suited to creating highly concurrent and highly safe systems, and “programming in the large”, that is, creating and maintaining boundaries that preserve large-system integrity. This has led to a feature set with an emphasis on safety, control of memory layout, and concurrency. Performance of idiomatic Rust is comparable to the performance of idiomatic C++.
