I never said fixed cost. It's the same auction model as all of the test networks we've done.
My apologies. A one time up front charge? For what? Perhaps a more detailed explanation is in order. I thought that meant a single fee, presumably the same for all buyers. You may not have said it was variable based on the class of name (popularity or some other criteria), but for a specific name the cost isn't variable is it?
Lets go back to my post.
Is this the place the DNS DAC is discussed; i.e. if I monitor this thread is this where I'll be best informed of everything concerning a "blockchain DNS"?
I've noticed some effort here for DNS work on a blockchain, but it appears to be a PoW style blockchain, presume this is the test networks discussed here is that right?
When will it become a PoS DAC and why the PTS snapshot at this stage of the DNS DAC development? What is the purpose of these "test networks", is it to flush out the code for a wallet / GUI or browser plugin code, or code to be inserted into or replacement for the name resolution layers of a network protocol stack?
I am still confused about this tho I've tried to find out as much as I can. Just doesn't appear to have the same strength of effort as BitShares, and nowhere near the volume of discussion about it.
Is Derrick still one of the developers involved?
And since I seem to be a fountain of questions here's another: Is the approach you've taken for the development of this DNS DAC typical of how future DACs are created? What I mean is starting with a PoW blockchain implementation and ending with a PoS DAC under the BitShares umbrella?
Sorry for the flurry of questions but unlike bitshares this DNS DAC is harder to get current info for. If anyone has info to answer these questions or other links to help me understand this better please let me know so I don't have to post dumb questions.
