A Core Developer
A Core Developer contributes to the SAFE Network codebase and is directly rewarded with safecoins.
Developers work on the SAFE Network core libraries, which are written exclusively in the system programming language Rust, according to a coding standard and with the support of mailing lists and community resources. In addition to the core team working directly for the company MaidSafe, there are decentralized Core Developer pods worldwide which exist to disseminate project knowledge and aid development.
The amount of safecoins awarded to a Core Developer is determined by their contribution, and payments are allocated from the MaidSafe Foundation from a reserve of 5% of all safecoins set aside for this purpose.
