MaidSafe with their SAFE Network
safenetwork.tech/

Think a distributed operating system, think zero boundaries, think privacy. Think censorship resistent. That's what Maidsafe can achieve with their SAFE network.

It's basically the next generation of the internet going way beyond where cloud services are now. Basically providing services that run on a multitude of machines regardless if they're operating in a data center or privately owned.

It will also feature a payment system through SafeCoin, safenetwork.tech/safecoin/

Projects like these are creating the future

Hence, they're working on this for over 10 years. It's complex obviously
