I'll add my posting here, I'm also hiring Rust programmers for a cryptocurrency.
We're going for a more traditional cryptocurrency rather than decentralized storage. However, we have determined a method for mining this cryptocurrency amongst people equally, some set-up required but it doesn't require any monetary initial investments out of our users. They can just plug in and earn and we even have some extra security features that prevent theft and Mt. Gox style attacks.
Go with Maidsafe if you are looking for salary, we aren't quite there yet, but we can give you equity that should be worth a whole lot more than what MaidSafe can hope to offer one day.
@jacksoncscot: We may want to talk about partnership at some point.. I've looked into decentralized storage and as I understand it, MaidSafe still has some Sybil prevention issues. We've figured out how to do some pretty fancy Sybil prevention that I'm sure you'd find interesting, like I said no initial investment required. Not POW, POS, or POC. A true Proof of Person - POP.
