Zach is a skilled usability engineer who is passionate about Namecoin and decentralized DNS and identity. Anyone who cares about blockchain + internet infrastructure should know who Zach is.

I am spending the remainder of the private DNS fund plus a bit of my own money to bring Zach to VA for a trial week in early January, much like we did with dbrock and drltc.

This trial week will be paid work, he will probably attack low-hanging fruit in our wallet usability. But the real purpose of the visit is to see how well we get along philosophically, brainstorm ideas for how we can keep supporting Zach's work in a way that benefits BTS, and lay out what needs to get done for decentralized DNS to become a reality.

Don't get too excited, there is still a huge spectrum of possible outcomes here. But poaching a namecoin core dev to work on a BTS DNS sidechain may just be one of them, so let's all be nice to Zach =D

 +5% Besides BitAssets, I was most excited about the prospect of DNS. Censorship resistant domains are an absolute MUST.

Easy to use decentralized DNS is going to be such a huge achievement. Would be awesome if it ended up coming packaged with the bitshares full node, then using .p2p domains within the bitshares community would be almost as convenient as regular domain names since I think most of us already has it installed on our main machines.

YES.

Poach all of the devs.

I want to see a Zach Lym paid delegate in our future.  (And on that note, can we please elect Toast and the other core devs already?  Seriously everyone!)


Today it is a namecoin dev.

Next year hopefully it will be people named Vitalik and Gavin. ;)   
This is the power of paid delegates.

Absolutely! Feeling very positive that a few weeks after the merger, we are seeing significant movement by the outstanding team and community supporting BitShares.

For a very short period of time earlier this month I had some concerns about what the next tangible actions would be; now my optimism about this project is at an all time high. The feeling of being the unknown underdog is so excitingly fun and bullish, I am pumped!

It's not just about making money and I hope we all know that by now - thank you for those of you working so hard day and night to make it a reality! The BitShares community is challenging the status quo and I am just so happy to be a part of it.

There is also the possibility that he gets to know your operation behind the scene--the strengths and weaknesses and uses it to one-up bitshares....and gets paid for it.  Like toast said, there is a range of potential outcomes.

Not saying this to be negative but to try to temper expectations. I learned that the hard way after thinking it was almost certain overstock would go with bitshares tech for their exchange...due in large part to the long, free consultation meetings invictus had held with them behind the scenes. We see where that went :P

That said, it is an open source movement so it should be interesting to see how it unfolds!

I COMPLETLY agree. It's how I got involved with crypto back in April. Namecoin was the first cryptocoin I owned.

I only want to say ,this kind of thing is : +5%.

After the merger , BTS is becoming  more attractive to excellent devs to work together for the whole picture.

Personally , have better feelings about things going around rightnow.
