Hi everyone, nice to finally see a forum for EOS. Unlike others I’m not really a technical person so had some questions and would really appreciate someone more knowledgable enlightening me.
I was reading up on the distributed storage that will be provided by EOS - I understand the part where it will not cost any tokens, and a person can use storage and bandwith proportional to the EOS tokens they’ve staked and locked etc.
What I was wondering was that, Dan Larimer says in interviews etc that people will not have to pay for the bandwidth costs of other users downloading the files etc as other users will have access to bandwidth through the virtue of the EOS tokens they own etc.
So if there’s a decentralised youtube on EOS - and a person uploads a video, will only other EOS token holders be able to download or stream the video? I understand that some free bandwidth perhaps may be provided by block producers, but if a video goes viral who covers bandwidth costs? The white paper talks about this but I just couldn’t understand who would actually pay if people do not own EOS tokens and the person who uploaded video is not willing or able to cover the cost either.
Furthermore - in the roadmap it says that parallel execution will be done after launch, does anyone know how long dan larimer will be developing for EOS?
Basically I was wondering who updates or programs EOS after Dan leaves.
