Watch this video for an introductory overview of the network. Find out why this technology is so important, the problems it solves, and discover many of the network's unique features.
The SAFE Network is soon to provide access to a world of exciting apps where the security of your data is put above all else. In time, downloading the free SAFE software will provide access to: messaging, apps, email, social networks, data storage, video conferencing, and much more.
Rather than using data centres and servers common within today’s internet, which are prone to data theft and surveillance, the SAFE Network uses advanced P2P technology, that joins together the spare computing capacity of all SAFE users, creating a global network. You can think of SAFE as a crowd sourced internet. It is on this network that everyone’s data and applications reside.
All you need to join this network is to download the free SAFE software, create your account and tell the network how much space you are going to provide. It’s that simple!
By providing your unused computing resources to SAFE you will be paid in a network token, called safecoin. To start earning, download the free SAFE software, create your account and tell the network how much space you are going to provide.
As network data is stored and retrieved from your computer (Vault), your virtual wallet will start to automatically receive safecoin. You can use these to pay for other services on the network, or convert to another currency via a SAFE currency exchange.
The ecosystem around the SAFE Network is already starting to blossom and a number of exciting apps* are already being built by third party developers using the SAFE APIs.
Applications that provide access via the Launcher API ensure that you can access all apps with the same PIN, username and password used when you created your SAFE account. This means that you stay in control of your details at all times.
