What I'm referring to here is the possibility that the system proposed by Maidsafe may not even work. And that is the reason it is not finished yet. It's nice when you have centralized the servers in digital ocean and things appear to be working, yet when you go into the wild and distribute on everyone's machines things can change, and when you put all the trimmings (anonymity, coins, payments, and don't forget it's all supposed to be instant; it all sounds good). On the other hand, we do know for sure that block chain systems do work 100% for distributed consensus, and decentralized control of networks, and protection of data from hackers and theft.
I am introducing another perspective when it comes to speculation around the Maidsafe project. It has now been more than 10 years of trying to get this, and already several mentions wrongly of it's being manifest over the past 2 years. It is clearly highly unproven, and people can say "can't you read the white paper". I think that you can read the white paper and see it is an interesting idea, and seasoned software developers will reply saying "if they can pull it off yes it's great". I just took for granted that Maidsafe will finish the software, actually without question, that was my mistake. When I started to explore "maybe I'm wrong about this", is when I realized many holes that can't be answered without the finished implementation.
For example The Bitcoin whitepaper was released with accompanying implementation that worked as described, with a few bugs. So far there is yet still no indication Maidsafe has a working implementation based on the specifications (things always look better on paper and when they're 10% of the whole specification). That is also part of an issue I believe around speculating on maidsafecoin in that, how are people able to evaluate if the software is working or even going to work. If there exists some implementation of a "SAFE Network" then we must evaluate it, and not jump in head first that's my opinion on the approach.
For now block chain is eliminating the server, it is decentralizing the flow of information. It is working as specified.
Regarding SEC, I am not encouraging further speculation for the reason that it makes sense to get excited about something that is working. In that sense pumping safe exchange coin is just pure speculation at this time, actually. I know personally that I have planned for an implementation based on existing systems for an anonymous contract platform, however, how can you know that it will work until it's working? But if others are going to speculate of course I won't be able to stop them, though I am not promoting my work at this point until it is finished.
If SEC holders demonstrate a majority opinion to stay developing safe exchange on the Maidsafe network, then we will just be twiddling thumbs for a while. But if that's what majority of people want then that is okay too.
