.p2p or a _com ?
« on: August 11, 2014, 10:22:07 PM »

1. BitShares DNS is launching with the TLD .p2p and may also offer TLD's like .own & .key

BitShares.p2p
Apple.own
Google.key

2. However it may also be technically possible to replace the dot '.' with something else like a '_' and then be able to offer the letters from ICANN domains such as _com too. Web addresses that end in just a _ will also be possible.

Apple_
Google_com
Wikipedia_org
Bitshares_p2p


Which of the two approaches do you prefer/you think would be more popular?

It seems pointless to discuss something we have already concluded is not technically feasible.. backwards compatibility and playing nice with ICANN namespace are both critical
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

If we want TLDs widely adapted etc.

BitShares.p2p
BitShares.own
BitShares.key


only traditional .TLDs working IMO

I think the underscore option as in google_com was the only one that might be backwards compatible.
(Otherwise I would have preferred a + or a !)

I'm passionate about the idea of brand_com's and just brand_ hence the poll but am happy to be proved wrong by the market because all I really want is to maximise my investment.

I'm also seeing PTS increasing while Namecoin is struggling. (Namecoin down 10% yesterday.) 
This is also a very good sign for the .p2p DAC in it's current form.
