“If we could do it over again, this is probably how we would do it…” Quote from Marc Andreessen about Maidsafe, the Venture Capitalist that co-founded the first widely used web browsers Mosaic and Netscape.
For the past 10 years, MaidSafe have been working on creating a decentralised internet called the SAFE Network. With privacy and cyber-crime being a major global issue, there couldn’t have been a better time for Maidsafe to go live on BnkToTheFuture.
Rather than data being stored on servers owned by large companies, the SAFE Network connects the spare computing capacity of its users to form a global network.
This decentralised design leaves no room for single point of attack as data locations are constantly changing. Data is automatically relocated as users switch their computers on and off. This provides levels of security not possible with today’s centralised servers.
In addition to the security benefits, the network is actually being fuelled by the spare computing resources of the users.
Exclusively to our Online Investment Platform, qualifying investors can now check out the Maidsafe pitch here.
