Pre-order a Keyhotee ID
« on: November 03, 2013, 05:06:08 PM »

As anyone who has been following Keyhotee and BitShares knows, we are building a decentralized block chain based ID system.  With Keyhotee ID you mine your own identity and the more you invest into mining your own name the more others will trust that it is not a sock puppet and the more you have to lose if it builds a bad reputation.   Keyhotee ID assigns names on a first mined first served basis after the genesis block and the registration date and renewal count follow that unique name everywhere.   These numbers can be used for all kinds of things as the Keyhotee ecosystem grows including:  automatic filtering and ranking of posts on forums,  spam filtering,  threshold for account creation, and as a weighting component in a growing web of trust.   

http://invictus-innovations.com/your-good-name

How long has your Brand been in business and what's it worth to you?

Every Keyhotee ID has a Born-On Date.  The date it was mined into existence in the Keyhotee ID block chain. The closer to the original Genesis Block, the greater the reputation value.  The more you have to lose if you ever have to start over.  The more likely you joined before the Bad Guys learned what an impeccable, incorruptible reputation would be worth in Keyhotee Free Space.

Every Keyhotee ID also has a Recognition of Contribution.  This is what your reputation is worth to you based on what you've invested into it.  Proof that your ID is not a sock-puppet of convenience. Think of it as your personal proof-of-work.  What support have you given back to make the Keyhotee ID ecosystem successful?  So far, there are only two ways to build your ID's lifetime Recognition of Contribution.

And one will be lost forever before Keyhotee goes live on New Year's Eve.

1) Be a Keyhotee Founder. Contribute something toward building Keyhotee Free Space for everyone else.

2) Be a Keyhotee Governor.  Contribute mining resources toward securing  Free Space for everyone else.


So here is how it works:  If you contribute money toward the development of Keyhotee you will receive many benefits that are not available to others.  Among these benefits are:

1) First Pick of Names prior to Genesis Block
2) Your names never expire
3) You earn Investment points equal to 1 normal name renewal for every .0005 BTC you contribute.  Normally it would take 1 year of constant mining to acquire about 8768 investment points, but founders start out with at least 500 investment points when the contribute 0.25 BTC or more.
4) Whenever your name appears in Keyhotee as a source or destination email address or contact it will be given special honored status.
5) Any future ways we can think of to honor the Keyhotee Founders, if you can think of cool benefits let us know and we will add them to the list.

Keyhotee has the potential to change the way we do secure communication and will allow us to send Bitcoin to a name.   What name do you want?

Referral Bonus

There is one additional way to acquire contribution points.  Refer others to the idea.  When you refer someone you get one additional contribution point for every contribution point paid for by the individual you referred.   Help us build the Keyhotee Development team so we can hire a full time developer to continually improve our decentralized email, chat, VOIP, and web of trust system.

We have had a large number of people attempt to reserve Keyhotee ID's such as  FirstNameLast4234   or  Name_Last34 or other obtuse forum handles that they have used other places on the internet.  I would like to remind everyone that you can pick very simple names such as:

"Q"
"Dan"
"Nick"
"Jan"
"Gavin"

These names are far easier to share with someone over the phone.  Which would you rather tell someone, "Keyhotee Mail me as bytemaster, B-Y-T-E-MASTER"   or "Keyhotee Mail me as Dan".   

Take the opportunity to reserve these easy, high-value names rather than fall back to the sacristy mentality of picking names that are longer simply because someone else got the name you really would like.

Can you explain a bit about the process?

I applied for a Keyhotee ID.

I sent a payment in PTS.

What's next? Just wait till the New Year?

I will email instructions once the beta of Keyhotee is out with details on how to redeem your ID.

I am keeping that info private, people may not want their keyhotee ID tied to their real ID.

I will work on something like this after I finish the launch of ProtoShares.

Looking forward to this public list as well.  There are a few names I'm interested in paying the founder min bid for but if they are already taken by people with much higher donation thresholds than I can manage I'd rather know that in advance so I can either pick something else or try to outbid someone more in my league.  For the money/time involved in accumulating the donation amount at current difficulty I'd like to take some of the mystery out.

Also, if I donate X PTS for my chosen name (and alternative names) yet do not get any of them due to being out bid on all of them do I get my donation back, am I given a chance to try and pick something else, or am I assigned some random variation?  Is this detailed somewhere or still being worked out?

Thank you.

At the very least, I will email anybody who gets outbid on their first choice to give them one last chance to pick another name before we pour the genesis block concrete.  This would happen in the week leading up to New Year's Eve.

Nice, now it's cost 10 PTS!!!
http://invictus-innovations.com/founder-sign-up

That's just the minimum bid to enter the auction.  I see you have "testz" as your Keyhotee ID.  If I understand how this process works it's not yours until you're confirmed as the high bidder for the ID "testz" on December 24th.  Someone else can still get it if they outbid you. As the bidding is currently private you won't know until you lose. 

At least Stan has offered to email us to tell us if we lost and give us a chance to pick another name.  By the time we get to emailing about collisions the pecking order should be cast in stone and your second choice should stick.  My guess is you'd have to respond to the email in a short time because if the pecking order is set they can't offer the next in line to pick a new name in case you pick one someone lower picks thus generating another collision (though you could cause a new collision by bumping out someone lower rank than you with your new choice).

Maybe a public anonymous auction would be better to prevent such a scenario.  Or maybe there are few enough Founders that collisions will be rare?

If I have this completely misunderstood please set me straight.

There are currently ~70 Founders, however only about 25% have paid.
