Do we own bitshares.com?
« on: October 20, 2014, 04:51:43 PM »

Was just thinking about the bitcoin.com fiasco, and wondering if the same thing will happen to us.

AFAIK invictus owns the BitShares trademark so you could pursue traditional means of getting it back when it matters

I totally understand how this all makes sense from a strategic and business perspective, but it is kind of ironic, no? Considering the philosophy behind .p2p and all. I just find that amusing.

you need to link to the old/classical world to build a bridge to the new bright future :)

Yeah, yeah I know. You gotta work within the system to change it. Still thought it was worth pointing it out.

Actually the bitshares trademark was rejected outright for everyone forever says Dan

So I guess if they try to pull any shit then they can just incur the wrath of anonymous cryptonerds which is quite scary IMO

Actually, BitShares.com would not be able to be seized because of the 2003 registration date.

By the way, I'm liking this new rebranding thing that's been going on :)

So does this mean we don't own the domain?

No one cares about Bitshares.com though. There is no need for Bitshares.com when we have a distributive DNS system that will most certainly replace the status quo.

He tries to hawk it on here regularly. Thusfar, I think he's up to a $13 bid from us. Which has taken him many months.

hahahaha wow

I wonder if the guy has checked out the market cap for Bitshares. With a current market cap of nearly $50 million the Bitshares community could have offered the guy at least $1 million dollars if we really wanted it. haha

Again, as I previously mentioned there is no need for the bitshares.com domain when one of the goals this community is trying to accomplish is creating a distributive DNS system. Which I am 100% certain will be achieved.

If DNS DAC is successful, we'll be forking the current ICANN centralization of all TLDs, grandfathering in all currently registered .coms. The internet will never grow out of the .com.

Say "Bitshares.com", then say "Bitshares dot pee to pee".

I am well aware of all the innovation that is happening here and within the BitShares technology. It is truly disruptive, and I have even purchased some myself.

I think the real offers will start rolling in when calling 'BitShares' a community makes as much sense as calling 'Forex' a community.

Yeah its a possibility who knows you might even be able to get much more in the future when and if this whole thing takes off.
