#1 Would it be possible to bring the Darkcoin (er, "Dash") Foundation in as a Bitshares DAC?
From eduffield's post (https://darkcointalk.org/threads/rebranding-followup.4266/
"the name “Darkcoin” has some negative perception by businesses we’ve reached out to. They’ve said, it’s not the privacy centric nature of the product, but the name that is unfortunate"
"the foundation began investigating the use of it [Dash] and found a trademark application ... we need to challenge that trademark application to even be able to use the name, otherwise it’s a complete non-starter"
"We’re absolutely open to everyone’s input and always have been. We would like this process to be 100% transparent as possible. In the community supports it, I would support hiring a firm
to handle the rebranding for us. We could allow the firm
to engage directly and transparently with the community, then have foundation members vote
on the final decision. Originally when the community started talking about rebranding months ago, we also began talking about it internally
. It’s obvious that we missed something in the process and I’d also like to apologize on behalf of myself and the foundation’s board
Needless to say, I got a Darkcoin buy signal today on their news.
Could Bitshares help them by converting their Foundation to a DAC and #2 allowing their coin holders to maybe even get some yield if there was a Dash-market-pegged bitDash asset, er uh, yeah, I know this is a total newbie question sorry. I'm thinkin we could help a lot of the altcoins out there... not just the bitBTC, ya know??
