The MaidSafe project announced today it has 500 developers signed up to build applications for its decentralized Internet platform. This follows the project’s successful crowd sale that raised $6m in its first five hours.
MaidSafe has the ambitious aim of radically decentralizing all the web services that exist today, and is working on projects that include altcoin wallets, unlimited file storage and sharing applications, a decentralized music store, secure messaging applications and a decentralized altcoin and fiat currency exchange.
The idea is that these services will be free, not only from authoritarian shutdowns and seizures, but also hackers and other malicious attacks. On MaidSafe’s planned network, all data is “shredded, encrypted and distributed to participating computers, or ‘nodes’, throughout the world”.
