Truth and facts[edit]

  • MaidSafeCoin is the new decentralized internet, the world's first autonomous data network.
  • Blockchain based storage solutions that store a data identifier (e.g. hash) in a blockchain, but store the data 'somewhere else' do not improve the security of our data. That 'somewhere else' still needs to be secured, and if this data can be deleted, or our access denied these 'solutions' are not fit for purpose. The SAFE Network removes people from the management of our information to protect the world's data.


  • Slogan: The new decentralized internet.
  • Slogan: The world's first autonomous data network.
  • Launched in 22 Apr 2014 (began in year 2006).
  • MaidSafeCoin (MAID) is based in Scotland.


  • The official ticker symbol for MaidSafeCoin token: MAID
  • Token type: ERC20
  • Circulating Supply: 452,552,412 MAID

The New Internet Shouldn't Be Blockchain-Based

00:00 The Internet's changing and there is a wave of new technologies entering the market, but most failed to provide the levels of privacy and security we should expect.
00:09 The current internet relies on centralized servers owned by a few large and powerful organizations to host your data.
00:18 These central points act as honey pots for hackers and advertisers trying to monetize your data.
00:23 Decentralization offers a solution to this problem.
00:27 Data is split up and hosted on unused capacity of users devices, and network is created as these devices are linked together without central servers.
00:38 However, many decentralized services are built on block chains, which are an amazing design for public Ledgers, but terrible mass storage containers.
00:48 Storing data directly on the blockchain is prohibitively expensive and provides poor read/write performance.
00:56 Subsequently, blockchain based storage solutions store a data identifiers such as a hash in a blockchain but store the data somewhere else and this somewhere else still needs to be secured.
01:09 We should be trying to secure the data, not the pointer to it.
01:11 It is time for a solution that secures both the data and the ledger.
01:17 This is the safe Network, the world's first and only autonomous data network.
01:22 An autonomous network is not a set of servers or own storage locations or identifiable nodes, it is our self-healing, self-configuring and self-managing system.
01:35 Similar to a colony of ants, there is no centralized Authority and yet it's highly optimized and effective.
01:40 Comparative to blockchain mining which uses proof-of-work algorithms, the safe network operates on a proof of resource farming system.
01:50 Users are paid for the quantity and quality of storage capacity they provide to the network time.
01:54 For a truly decentralized, autonomous internet, dedicated to the security of your data.

An Introduction to the SAFE Network

00:00 How much of your life is stored digitally?
00:02 Your photos, your files, your most intimate conversations, it's all on a hard drive somewhere and it's probably easy to access by you, but also by the cloud storage companies you trust.
00:16 Those companies have a track record of handing over their data to governments.
00:21 Their first priority is to make profit for their shareholders, not your privacy.
00:26 Then there's cybercrime, it has become a bigger business than the trade of illicit drugs.
00:34 Due to the enormous amount of data stored on cloud servers, they are a target that's hard for hackers to resist.
00:41 It's time to take security and privacy back into our own hands.
00:45 MaidSafe uses decentralization and encryption to ensure that only you can access your files.
00:55 The safe network is completely distributed, there is no central point of control or weakness.
01:01 The software connects unused computing capacity to form a global network that can handle all data and communications.
01:09 It's not just about storage, it allows you to safely run any app that exists today, while paying you for your contribution.
01:20 Here's how it works.
01:20 You create an account without the need to identify yourself and decide how much space you want to dedicate to the network.
01:31 As the space is used, safe coins are given as a reward.
01:34 Safe coin has a market value and can be freely treated just like Bitcoin.
01:40 Before you upload a file, it is encrypted on your computer.
01:46 It is then fragmented into small pieces and spread at random throughout the network.
01:51 Data is stored with redundancy and files are autonomously moved by the network as connected computers are turned on and off.
02:00 Only you have the credentials to make it available again.
02:04 Your data and your thoughts belong only to you.
02:08 You decide what to do with them, no one else.
02:12 MaidSafe: privacy, security and freedom for everyone.

Stage Events and Milestones
ALPHA 1 Initial alpha implementation enabling users to access MaidSafe managed nodes using the SAFE Launcher to use several demo applications.
ALPHA 2 The Authenticator. The current release incorporating a more secure form of network access now bundled with the SAFE Browser.
ALPHA 3 Secure Autonomous Network. An autonomous secure routing layer that will see the network architecture becoming more decentralised, enabling users to run routing nodes and providing secure transient data in the process.
ALPHA 4 Secure autonomous data services. The addition of a storage layer through the reintroduction of user run vaults facilitating a much broader range of decentralised apps and use cases.
BEYOND Data republish and network restarts. A security audit of the network. Test safecoin. Real-time network upgrades. Network validated upgrades.
