nick.lambert got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Rebrand safecoin, the digital currency of the decentralised network, SAFE
Check out nick.lambert's Logo design contest…
Safecoin is a digital currency or token, the only one that exists on the SAFE (Secure Access for Everyone) Network. The SAFE Network is a secure and fully decentralised data management service. The network is made up from the unused computer resources provided by the individual network users. The network is an Open Source project, designed and implemented by MaidSafe (http://www.maidsafe.net). Each user of the SAFE Network provides a small part of their computer resources; hard-drive storage, CPU power, and bandwidth. This local resource is called a Vault. Each Vault is cryptographically secure and connects to other Vaults throughout the network. Safecoins (http://maidsafe.net/safecoin) are used within the SAFE Network to access and use services on the network, such as storage, VoIP, messaging...etc... All safecoins are saved in a user's wallet and can either be earned or bought. The SAFE Network and safecoin are aimed at all Internet users, primarily consumers. EXTRA PRIZE - On top of the prize money stated above, the winner will receive 5,000 safecoins when the network goes live!

Logo types to explore
What sets safecoin apart? The world of digital currencies and assets has exploded in recent times and there are currently 571 listed on Coin Market Cap (https://coinmarketcap.com/all/). Many of these coins don’t distinguish themselves from one another, either in terms of features or design. We don’t believe this is the case with safecoin. It offers: Complete anonymity - unlike bitcoin there is no public ledger (block chain) and it essentially functions like digital cash (only the existing and the single most recent owners are known). Security - cryptographic signatures ensures that only the owner of the coins can transfer ownership while eliminating double spending. The decentralised (a key concept) nature of the SAFE Network and the encryption utilised within provides users with a very secure store of value and medium of exchange. Utility - safecoin is required to access and use services and applications on the SAFE Network, access is not permitted without it. Safecoins are generated by the network (no human involvement) based on how much the network is used. It is possible to have an unlimited number of transactions and confirmations take place at network speed. (It is worth noting that bitcoin is limited to 7 transactions per second and confirmations take up to 60 minutes). There are zero transaction fees. WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? We are looking for a logo, that encapsulates one/some of the of the defining features above. No words should be incorporated other than “safecoin” or this could be abbreviated. It is important to us that the logo itself looks as good scaled down as it does large. Almost all existing digital currencies are circular in shape (for obvious reasons), however, it would be interesting to also see designs that break the mould and further help to set safecoin apart. In addition to the designs themselves, it would also be interesting for the designer to provide a brief commentary on the main aspects of the design and the key concepts they were trying to encapsulate, if they feel comfortable doing so.

Michelle.J was great to work with and came up with several concepts that fit my style. She made adjustments quickly and was very responsive and helpful.
