Thanks for the article, I enjoyed reading it. To clarify your classification of MaidSafe, we’re rolling out a decentralised data and communications network, so not just about storage. We believe it to be the World’s first autonomous network. Also, The SAFE Network is being built on an entirely new set of protocols and used Omni only for the issuing of MaidSafeCoin in the 2014 crowd sale.
As you mention, these exciting new technologies will provide incentives for crowd participation that didn’t exist before, but also enable the storage of private data on a decentralised public network, something not possible with BitTorrent which is more focussed on public file sharing.
Thanks again! Nick.
