SafeMoon Orbital Shield (SOS)
Powered by SafeMoon
As SafeMoon mentioned in September, Orbital Shield is going through beta testing. SafeMoon shared some results with the community last month about Orbital Shield's ongoing development mentioning that after the completion of a third-party program that tested for any vulnerabilities in the security of Orbital Shield, no system or data compromises occurred!
In September SafeMoon also shared that external beta testers were slowly being invited to test the Orbital Shield Beta. The external beta testers selected were given the okay to share their ongoing beta version updates and screenshots with the community.
So much exciting information was shared. One of the community external beta testers, Danology, captivated Orbital Shield's security features by creating a list mentioning the 256-bit encryption used, the zero data storage due to the real-time decryption of anonymized data, the patent-pending seed phrase regeneration, 2-factor authentication, 24-word seed phrases, and more!
Some screenshots also circulated which answer the question of how to know SafeMoon Orbital Shield is a quality security product you can trust.
The answer provided reads,
"This security has been integrated and developed by experts within the industry. These experts have worked with many high-level companies and individuals, including the US government. The technology is backed by years of development to ensure that it is as secure as it can be at the time."
Towards the end of the month, SafeMoon shared some gratitude to the BETA users and QA Engineers for the many improvements added mentioning that these will enhance the ease of use and fluidity of SafeMoon Orbital Shield.

SafeMoon CEO John Karony answered a few questions the community asked about Orbital Shield last month and shared some thoughts on Twitter about Orbital Shield. He reminded everyone that Orbital Shield is being implemented into the SafeMoon App first and also shares that he is "considering opening up SOS [Safemoon Orbital Shield] to other Web3 businesses to license and use" for their security.
"...Orbital Shield is being implemented into the SafeMoon App first, however many companies/industries could utilize Orbital Shield to improve the security of their products.🙂"
"...Security frequently takes place in an applications background. Wish we could have added cool sound effects, but we elected not to do that at this time."
"I believe Twitter and other platforms should use SafeMoon Orbital Shield (SOS) as its user credentialing system. Nobody likes mass data breaches. I am considering opening up SOS to other Web3 businesses to license and use."
Internal Company Leadership
Chief of Staff Joshua Chilcutt popped in on a Twitter Space last month to converse with the community. He shared a little about himself, SafeMoon's company leaders, and working with CEO John Karony.
"All of the senior leaders that are around John are amazing individuals in their own right. I shared with John a couple weeks ago that I am envious of the 40-year-old John because he's been surrounded by such ... high-quality and high-caliber leaders and he has a willingness to learn beyond any CEO I have ever worked with."
SafeMoon's Global Community Manager, Veno addressed some community concerns with the goal of providing as much transparency as possible in a long heartfelt message this past month on Reddit. You can read his message in this month's corresponding Pulse article.
Hey SafeMoon Reddit, let's talk. Hey SafeMoon Reddit. Veno here, SafeMoon Global Community Manager. I wanted to stop on in and say hello as I have not yet had the pleasure to sneak on in here and chat with you all, and introduce myself. I was previously a CM in our extensive discord network, and now I'm overseeing the other platforms like reddit and facebook as well. So I wanted to touch base with you all, mention a few things that may be on your mind, and answer what questions I could. Not very 'AMA' style as I'm still getting my footing with all the moving parts in several situations, but as close as I can get I suppose. 😎 Wall of text, incoming! 🪦 'We're being censored!' 😶 No of course nobody wants to censor you. The moderators here are always looking to simply enfore standard rules to protect the community. When controversial things are posted, sometimes the staff/mods here look for guidance, and yesterday my guidance was to remove some of these styled posts, knowing some of you would be upset at the action. The goal here wasn't censorship, but to protect the atmosphere. Now I already know that won't fly with some of you, because it sounds so generic. But these decisions are made with a lot of consideration, information, data, and understanding of every angle of issues, actions, and results. These decisions are made carefully and thoughtfully, looking for what's best in any given situation. I know that answer will be twisted into a weapon by some, but so can be almost everything anyone says. I believe the effort to communicate with you is important, because I know some of you just want to understand a situation in any way possible. If there is any request I see at the top of all other's it's calling for transparency. So this is my best effort towards that end with what little I can say. I'm an analogy person, so let me use one for this example as to why we make the decisions we do. With a lot of things in consideration (extreme patience for products, condition of the markets, world events, state of the economy, concerns of your own personal investments, etc), I feel we know the general mentality of our audience and community day to day, even if you don't think we do. These mentalities can be similar to a room filled with fuel. When controversial things are posted, it can be similar to bringing a torch into that room filled with fuel. Even if you think it's going to light the way, the outcome will likely be combustion, chaos, and more frustration, and not the outcomes you are hoping for either way. 'SafeMoon is Silent!' 💤 The complexity is mountains more than you could ever know, especially when you involve anything in the hands of a lawyer or court. When a conversation even touches the land of legal anything, I hand out the usual 'no comment' responses and advise all the teams to do the same. It will continue to be this way, and is fairly standard business practice. The Secret Sauce, ain't so secret. 🍅 It's no secret that we are aiming to guide our community towards a calm, respectful, and more positive mindset. This isn't some kind of trick, these things actually have a measurable impact. Having decades of experience between many of us in these matters, I cannot even begin to express how important a calm and collected mentality can affect change. If you've ever heard the saying that a 'first impression' is everything, it's more true than you know. There's a reason businessmen ask for an 'elevator pitch', because you should be able to pitch your idea to them in the time it takes an elevator to go up a tall building, and sometimes that's all the time you'll ever get. When someone new discovers SafeMoon, the clock starts ticking. For many, they will make a judgement in their mind based on what they see fairly quickly, on if it's worth their time to explore further or move on to the next thing. Our goal is to showcase not just what SafeMoon is, but our community. You're an incredible community, and a lot of you have given a lot of time and energy towards us and your fellow holders. That has meaning. That effort has real meaning. Most importantly, that effort can be easily undermined if not cared for. We care for this community just as much as many of you do and the decisions we make each day are towards that goal. More analogy time! If you provide a plant the right atmosphere of water and nutrients, it's being allowed to grow and bear fruit. Really, what I've typed is just a fancy complicated way of explaining that we're human too. We do care, and we are in-fact trying to always do our best. Yes, we're actually human. 🥴 Behind the words on your screen are real people, who have lives and families, foods we love, activates we enjoy, and jobs we work hard at. The non secret of our species, is that humans are prone to mistakes, regularly. Try not to chase us down with pitchforks over mistakes while we're trying to juggle a few hundred spinning plates while dancing on hot coals (yay analogies!). There's a lot of multitasking and ambition that leads to minor bumps along the way, as is human nature. I solve a lot of these confusions and concerns with communication, and I believe that's the best way to solve the concerns on this board as well. So Thank you, for those of you always so patient and calm and respectful to our teams, moderators, and fellow community members. Sometimes it's a challenge, but I know many of you try, and I'm so grateful for that. So this is where I'll turn it over to you: 🙏 Before any questions, keep these key points in mind: - If it's about any safemoon product, I won't have answers or timelines for you. Sorry. If the product is out or teased, turn to our official sources or education website for more info. - If it's about anything that even remotely near anything legal related at all, I'll not respond to it. - If you ask about things outside of the scope of my position, I may be unable to give a proper answer, and have to move past the question. I've been managing communities for most of my life. I like to be down here with you all, comunicating and understanding , and acting as a bridge between the core team and company, and all of you who support us. Don't set the bridge on fire, let me keep using it for peaceful and maybe some fun communication with you all.
