I had a question to the team re: could the network be used for licensed apps which are running cracked software. They ultimately said 'yes, but we dont advise it'. It would not be curated on iexecs own dapp store.So for such workers and users that contribute to such a 'dark' iexec network - they wouldnt necessarily have the reputation/protection/support as the condoned part of the network. Imho It would pose too much of a risk to workers to make dark uses of iexec possible... Until SGX/privacy cpus are the norm for home computers
iExec is a free network like the internet. Only iExec is decentralized and has no influence from within. Registering your application is not required to use the network. But assume that the applications that are approved in the dapp store are for legitimate purposes.
Good question. Funny, the term 'dark iExec' 👹 In theory, any (dockerizable) application could be registered to be powered by workers on the iExec network. Even if it is not listed on the iExec Dapp Store - private exchanges of resources and RLC can be facilitated by sharing the 'order' privately.In terms of worker protection, I will need to check with the team about the specifics of that one.
Let us not make a drama of this. The market itself with all the developments is already a tragedy in itself. It takes a certain amount of time for the market to indicate the right direction.Cryptocurrency can already be traded without this having to represent a product. Blockchain itself is not a strong sales tool to provide interconnection to parties, just as example kubernetes can not do this alone. It is what you want to achieve with it. iExec as a company will come up with plans to acquire revenues but it is important that this network does not entail any costs in the chain.
