what are your differences with maidsafe project?
Have you think about to make an IPO using Bithares? (like maidsafe used mastercoin) of course with bytemaster sugestion's to make it succesfull not like the ipo-maidsafe-joke...
I think we just decided to go to Counterparty, we plan on doing the crowdsale next month. Counterparty looks like the most polished platform for that so far. We plan to have more blockchains and tokens in the future, so perhaps we could at some point.
As far as Maidsafe, like you said there crowdsale was a bit of a disaster. Their technology however is coming along quite nicely from what I've seen. We build our tech on the blockchain, whereas they have their own flavor of P2P. If their tech pans out we already have plans to integrate them. Storj builds apps and protocols, we can play nicely with everyone.
Well if you send a transaction to store the metadata for a file in the blockchain. We could just eliminate the need for mining if we used Bytemaster's system, and it would work perfectly.
As far as devs if we could find some common technologies (like Transactions as Proof-of-Stake) that we both need, Storj would be happy to put some devs and resources towards it.
