Anyone want the domain bitname.org (for free)?

Post by gst » Sun May 08, 2016 7:19 pm

A long time ago I registered bitname.org to run a namecoin resolver on the public Internet (see https://forum.namecoin.info/viewtopic.php?t=22 for more information). This domain has been unused for years now and it's going to expire in about a week from now.

Does anyone want it? I'm giving it away for free (you'd just have to pay the regular registration fee to your provider). The domain is currently in unlocked state - feel free to issue a transfer request. I'm going to approve it on a first-come-first-serve basis.

There are currently very few people aware of namecoin, and .bit domains so most people that could be interested will not be familiar with this forum.

I suggest posting on a domain name related subreddit.

Um, I think the reason gst posted it here is because he *wants* someone familiar with Namecoin to get it.

@gst I don't have any use for it myself.
