Re: Name squatting

I am highly skeptical that a court would be stupid enough to to order the transfer of a .bit domain. The reason I am skeptical is because doing so could expose the how little power they have. I have been told that when one goes for OCS school in the military one of the things that they teach is "Ne...

Re: Name squatting

It would be interesting to see anyone try to make me turn over the keys that I have. I am more than willing to hand them over to the owners of the .com names. that is unless they say hand them over or else... That is when I say frak you. That is what makes blockchain technology so infinantly facina...

Re: Name squatting

Unfortunately some domain names can be transferred through operation of law ... there's a provision in international trademark treaties about famous brands and typosquatting or otherwise diluting is not permitted. Preserving .bit for keys and other purely digital certificates is less contentious. Of...

Re: Creative BitNym copyright licence: feedback requested

Interesting concept, approaching copyright notice as a state machine (though given the mashable nature electronic works and decomposition into elements suggest looking at Hierarchical State Machines which support nesting). Copyright worked well when it was the publishers and professionals doing it a...

Re: Idea for a new utility-based non-currency coin

Just my six cents. And I do know that you have worked for UN NGOs. I'm not picking on you. I say stuff like this all day every day to anyone who will listen. Check out my radio show and see.... Huh? If you've checked my LinkedIn profile, I've worked in academia and as individual consultant but neve...

Re: Idea for a new utility-based non-currency coin

Someone told me today, someone who loves the project "I'd recommend anyone in China not associate themselves with FreeSpeechMe, for their own safety." That's a really horrifying thought to me, but I did feel I needed to bring it up. I know it's different with different languages, but I already have...

Re: Idea for a new utility-based non-currency coin

I think the essence of the problem in my mind is what does name coin translate to. Chinese is a symbolic language in the sense that each character is more like a concept of which stringing them together creates concrete meaning. So name-coin could be interpreted in different ways like 钱姓 (lit money ...

Re: Idea for a new utility-based non-currency coin

Seriously, I meant no disrespect. You have to picture me smiling while typing all of this. I am not a programmer, I'm just an idea guy. I was just throwing out some ideas, some new, some not, some good, some probably not. Hey, you're in Singapore, do you speak Mandarin? We're looking for translator...

Re: Storing Contracts in the Name Registry

A contract must be signed by 2 parts at least, so, each part must sign the contract and store the sign in namecoin. One can change the contract, sign it, and other contractors can sign it too, or not. By using the history of the 2 (or more) names, you can find the most recent contract signed by the...

Re: Idea for a new utility-based non-currency coin

Either a scheme becomes so popular it becomes the defacto standard or else people will arbitrage and the scheme collapses. There can be more than one "de facto" "winner" when there are several competing technologies, especially if some offer something that the others don't. MWD there's a distinctio...
