Someone Registered 'My' Name!
« on: November 13, 2014, 02:28:08 PM »

So someone registered 'freetrade' some time ago, so I've got 'freetradereal'.

Is there any way to transfer or trade in registered names?

Seemed like kind of a newbie question to ask.

Haha, excellent answer. Nobody ever gives you enough credit, freetrade.

The account name squatting problem was the first major debacle of BTSX. The team made account names non-transferable so that they would have no economic value, so people would have no incentive to squat names. Then the team forgot to tell people that names were non-transferable. Classic Dr. Strangelove: build a doomsday device that only works if people know about it, then forget to let people know about it, ensuring that doomsday occurs. :)

My forum handle got squatted as well which is why I had to use svk31 rather than svk. Hope noone ever sent any funds to svk..
