    I agree ISO compliant would be ideal. Also curious for what happens to the old Dashcoin.

    So you guy don't want to compete against BTC

    http://www.xe.com/?c=XBT


    Why some of you people choose to stay a step behind is beyond me sometimes

    Also, as already stated, preventing exchanges from listing other coins named "Darkcoin" or "DRK"

    I'm with you on that. But the elephant right now is... what if we can't use it ? Any ETA on trademark issues?

    It would remain Dashcoin, I guess... one does not negate the other. Its legacy, just like basic software dev.
    At worse Dashcoin will piggy-back on Darkcoin's move and gain some momentum from us. Only exchange is Poloniex.

    But ISO compliance is more professional and it's one less thing that would need to be changed in the future if it does gain widespread adoption. I say we start acting like we want to be taken seriously now and differentiate ourselves from the DOGE and MONA and CLAMs in the sea of generic cryptocurrencies.

    And what is the problem here? If anything ISO starts way after patents and trademarks end, by a long shot. ISO may restrict some abbreviations, but its like a lottery. Do you know what ISO is?

    you can give clear information about the future of the original dashсoin?
    I understand that you have more important things to do, but agree that respect for other members of the community would be appropriate.
    thank you

    no you dont.

    Its not a registrar, its a compliance of procedures committee. So you can push XDD all you want and it wouldn't matter at all.
    They only certify you if you comply to their specific standards.

    you kidding? what it means to join you?
    and if we had coins and their investments, who we will reimburse them?
    for that mess? Hundreds of people are extracted. Did you just lock the account with the source code?

    It is not our fault. YOUR developer sold the right to us. If you have complaints direct them at the correct person.

    so you can leave the section with the source code of the original coin?
    why do you need it freeze?

    No one will reimburse. Its now officially legacy software. Like Windows 7 software wont work on Windows XP.

    [​IMG]

    If anything, you may see a serious pump because of this rebrand, and be able to exit at a higher value. I know it sounds a bit hostile, but the entire Dashcoin marketcap is only 2 or 3 Masternodes. It will be the best thing that happened to you !! the coin is dead!

    [​IMG]

    Best hopes for a speculative profitable exit !!

    I was just being polite, it was just an invitation. The original developer of that project abandoned the coin on his own. We only bought the rights to the name. If you have any questions with regards to that you should direct them to the developer of "Dashcoin" we don't have any details on his decision not to continue with that project.

    This is true
    BTC is XBT

    We could be DASH and XDD

    DASH for the P&D'ers (shitty exchanges)
    XDD for serious international currency traders on platforms like Forex

    Why not just be consistent and have a single international ticker

    I know we don't chose ISO, but ISO compliance would help reduce confusion for things like Forex exchanges and help avoid the problems Bitcoin has had with BTC/XBT.

    Exactly!!

    ... my favourite exchange is Kraken and they comply by XBT, which I absolutely hate! But it has no meaning whatsoever, except makes Kraken one of the most credible exchanges out there.

    (despite low volume)

    If, imagine, some south american committee decided Bitcoin would be ZBT for regulatory compliance, then that would be that.

    Lets focus on whats important. Hard work in every field that we can actually make some contribution.

    Agreed. We're going to need some good graphics to embed the ideas in it... It can be made to work.

    Hey Bro, could you be the DASH Dalmatian without the unofficial logos for a little bit, a few days? It is your unofficial account but we will need your support in pushing the new branding and we need to avoid confusion by promoting unofficial logos. Just a friendly request.
