gimme the DASH!
I'm sorry, but I just can't see how a name change, something discussed for a YEAR, is 1. so shocking and 2. changes anything important about Darkcoin?
We have had so much negative feedback regarding our name, Darkcoin. Andreas Antonopoulos talks about Darkcoin as if it's threatening, dark and scary. It can't shake it's nefarious undertones. This puts us in a VERY limited niche market. This was never my hopes for this coin.
A name change can only move us forward. If the name is so important that people would rather this fantastic project - with so much to give the world - should languish rather than flourish under a "cool" name, well then I give up. And I wouldn't blame Evan for giving up either. Why put your whole being and all your efforts into something you had hoped would change the world, when your very supporters want to marginalize your project?
Well hello there name change? I haven't heard any official news at all that we needed a name-change? On every channel I lurk there wasn't an info about this other than in the official announcements that popped into my RSS feeder a few days ago, so how exactly is this being discussed for a year Tante?
It was never in the interest of the community to have sudden changes emposed on them like in the current financial system, or am I wrong? Did such steps taken by the governing authorities not ruin enough coins already? (Vericoin rollback to name a good example).
This is a HUGE move for DRK to change it's entire entity and seeing how supposedly Evan has already signed deals and contracts for dash, how can this help DRK in any way, shape or form?
You might have just as well folded the only escape route DRK would have had in the future, which is the Anonymity that speaks for itself, DARKcoin namely
Anyways, I personally as a member of this community do not agree that a name change will move us any closer to any goal that was openly discussed than before, come what may in the future, DRK was always the 1st anonymity coin people went to, this might very well change in the future due to poor exposure or sacrifices.
All the best,
Sir... A rebrand must happen. Read any of my previous posts as to why this should have happened long ago... Back in Feb/Mar of last year....even.
Edit: Some of the greatest brands are simple names
to name a few....
I could get on board with the name I think after that argument but I have one question--is DRK moving to be more centralized or decentralized? I'm confused.
Good argument. You finally won me there.
Bitcoin is the number one coin for anonymity (with mixer service) by 100 miles, darkcoin hardly penetrated darknet, just like it hardly penetrated any merchants or businesses - like Evan and many merchants here said, the name is unfriendly and they not interested. Darkcoin has only been successful with core of investors not anywhere in the market. That's where DASH or digital cash comes in
Well, I beg to differ, one market has already invited DRK in and I think it's only the beginning of everything, why change for the sake of some quick buck when the long term goal is what really counts?
Anyways, I learned very early that discussing such things with authorities NEVER works, so I for one, will be trashing my 2 Bitkee DRK Storages and throw them away and sell my DRK for some genuine coin that respects the people and their voice in a fair and democratic way instead of just being all childish and doing whatever a single individual pleases to do.
The cool thing about the Crypto-Space is that you don't need to stay, I wish we would have the same options in the current fiat market
See you on the other side,

This is what I was saying earlier. At first it's sort of blah. Then you think about it, and the more you think about it, the more sense it makes.dazbarldy over at BCTtalk took some (very slight) suggestions from me. What do you think of this?
Inverted C, with the morse code screaming financial SOS, at the same time like a smoke trail from the speed of IX
I think the concept is becoming magical.
Actually your knee-jerk reaction is childish and without trying to have a discussion you ensure your defeat.
i dont think it's important because dashcoin has like $0.03 volume per day
I guess not everyone has had a chance a to read the 5000 posts of this discussion, but Evan bought Dashcoin(DSH) and the rights to "Dashcoin". Just like you would buy an existing domain, and there will be no more development on that project. We just bought it for the name, and to make just we had prior art when we do trademarks and such.
