We all use the Internet, and it would be hard to find a bigger, globally accepted and revolutionary invention that has come along within the last generation. The Internet is so important that many of the world’s largest companies are in fact Internet companies like Google and Facebook that maintain a database of user information that runs into the billions. This honeypot of personal data for every person in the world on a central server somewhere is the safest way to use this intercontinental system in the age of hackers, mass surveillance, and cyber criminals. Maid safe is looking to change all of that and is on the cusp of releasing their MVP, or Minimum Viable Product, for a fully-decentralized Internet protocol which has been exactly ten years in the making.

If you are in the United States or are watching the 2016 U.S. Presidential election process, you are watching a somewhat sullied but still somewhat legitimate power struggle within the vacuum of the antiquated “twoparty system.” Democrats and Republicans fight it out for eventual leadership and control of the nation. Bitcoin, in 2016, is going through its own electoral process of its own. The timing of it is just a matter of coincidence, but the stakes may be even greater than any Presidential race. This process is global in scope. The Western philosophy of what Bitcoin is and what it can be versus the Eastern viewpoint of what Bitcoin can provide. Two worlds, two cultures who see one revolutionary system from opposite points of view. Who’s right? Is anyone wrong?
