Safe Network Update 30 September
This week we do a deep dive into the Merkle Register, one of the two primitive datatypes in the Safe Network (the other being immutable chunks).
The Merkle Register is a novel #crdt we’ve come up with to model mutable state. It supports concurrent writes and history traversal.

But what if we lose or forget our credentials? Our precious stuff could be lost forever.
There has to be a better way—and thanks to the miracle of threshold cryptography there is!
The Safe Network Primer has been updated for the first time in more than a year. Find out what #Maidsafe are doing to strip out complexity.
Update, 25 November

Safe Network Update 09 December
A team member gave us a demo of ring confidential transactions (Ring CT).
It was fascinating stuff, but pretty heavy on the maths, so this week we’ve got a stripped down version with the bare minimum of algebra in an attempt to give a bit of background and explain the direction we’re taking with private DBC transactions.
