First client chunk stored on 60 vault MaidSafe network

Last week, on the 14th Nov 2013 to be exact, our first client chunk of data was stored in our 60 vault mini MaidSafe network.

The chunk was then retrieved and verified by the client with the chunk content remaining consistent, despite many stages of transmission.

The procedures covered by this process include :

client Creates its Account on network

-> client Registers its Pmid to network

-> client retrieves its PmidHealth to verify whether the previous registration of Pmid succeeded or failed

-> client Puts one chunk into network

-> client Gets the stored chunk to verify whether the previous put succeeded or failed


Although there are some missing implementations and observed problems that had to be bypassed during this first system integrated network wide test, it proves the possibilities of the MaidSafe network and the functionalities of current design/implementation handling self-authorisation and data put/get requests.

The Following diagrams illustrate data flows that were covered during the test, missing implementations or observed problems are highlighted in red.






  1. A huge step right enough 🙂 . The first self authenticated, self healing network with data stored in a manner that’s now the fuel of the network. It’s the culmination of thousands of man hours to get this far and it’s a huge relief to the team. Qi has done amazing things to be able to test this extremely complex series of algorithms, it’s remarkable to see it all happening right now.

    It’s a short hop from here to full capability, we just need to test carefuly and then release it to the world. Then we can watch as things change and this network evolves.

    Who needs servers or equally unnatural things like certificate authorities and human controlled authentication services? This is proof positive that these things are now unnecessary.

    Well done guys!!
