Why Thank you, me lady...
Darkcoin is not playing the role you mentioned. Bitcoin is. Darkcoin plays the role of Bitcoin's nasty dark brother.
I agree, Darkcoin needs a new name. The "*coin" just screams "shit-coin".
I disagree. Bitcoin can never fill the roll I outlined, ever. The government can control Bitcoin because it's an open checking account for every person in the world. This makes it easy for the government/s to remain in control. Darkcoin takes all control away. What they can't see and pin on you, they can't take away. They must ask for it.... or better still, they must propose a good reason for you, as a citizen, to give them money. If you don't agree or find value in what they propose, you don't give.
This is awesome, it's what I was trying to say! I am just really bad at expressing myself
Will we rename the Wallet to "Dashboard" ?
Me too sometimes Tante
OMG, I've almost pee'd my pants, that was so funny!!!
DASH is horrible. Do we even want to be associated with old school "cash" anyways? I thought the whole point of crypto was to get away from banking and cash??
maybe we should change it back to Xcoin? DASH is not a good name. Maybe just digital-cash then and forget the work DASH completely! Keep the ticker DRK but call it Digital cash.
What do you all think? Don't change Darkcoin, just rebrand it in an acronym It stays Darkcoin, but mostly becomes known like so:
Darkcoin InstantX and darkSend Coin = DISC
This way we can keep our logos
From DARK to DAWN
I like it. It has a very natural feel to it.
I am in the Philippines and it was a beautiful sunset about thirty minutes ago so now dusk is turning to dark. I like the DARK but I look forward to the DAWN.
Not too sure about DISC, we don't need external media where we're going
We really should consult the branding firm and see what they come up with. If we are going to re-brand, we could use the opportunity to come up with some clean/fresh/minimal.
I like the direction "https://www.circle.com/en" has taken. Simple is better.
I should also say, I quite like DRK IX DS 2FA also (it has snappy modern feel)
Finally, could you elaborate on "Scalable to billions of transactions per day"...not many people seem to be talking about that.
against my own words earlier, today DASH makes a heck load more sense. Its a quick mono-syllable, self ticker, with a D
sounds like cash. Like bitcoin is a coin using bits, DASH is the (potentially first real) digital cash (just please dont use Digital Cash, its so 1980's!!)
"yo dude, got some cash I can spare for a beer?"
"shit just ran out, but I think I still have some left over DASH on my phone, hold on, yup, this round's on me"
Let's call it Duang.
NO, and you already said it before so please stop
I suggested this earlier but then deleted it because we have dishwashing detergent Dawn.
Don't worry. It was supposed to be a joke.
EDIT: I know I said it before. Just feel terrible reading another 7 pages of discussion without message from Evan clarifying whether DASH is set in stone or not.
Game: find the day where Evan announced the possible re-branding:
(Hint: it's somewhere on the right side of the graph)
Looked like one person dumping ~10k DRK in four stages when I had a brief look earlier.
Please everyone, this is what our competitors want, don't be conned by the name change, it will weaken us.
There is a 2nd follow up thread here ..
lol yeh me too anyone who hears about it thinks it's illegal. it would be nice if the name itself didn't try to spell this out in big letters.
Do you think there is a scenario where no one decides to exit after a name change? The people against it are very vocal, that does not mean it makes less sense, the technology is exactly the same, the re-branding can be very positive for adoption. Isn't it about preserving the civil liberties of the majority? If changing the name helps us reach that majority, isn't that what we should do? I think some people just want to feel radical just for the sake of feeling radical, but if the true purpose is getting this great technology to the majority then the name must be changed.
Thanks Minotaur. Exactly.
Inevitably decent percentage of people wouldn’t love new name (because no name could satisfy 100% of current darkcoin-lovers).
So in short-term it is causing sales and price dropping. But in long-term it will cause buying: new people (previously was affraid of «dark-name») will force the price rising.
So It is better to look at current mess as on unique possibility to buy cheap DRKs .
At the moment isn’t clear how many are going to be sold and how many will be bought - but this uncertainty is a source of potential short-term profit and about guaranteed long-term profit. $$$
I'll leave my personal opinion about this all out of it.
All I'm hoping for is that some people who were greatly appreciated here will calm down soon and join the discussion again.
I can understand the reasons for the emotions going where they have been going though that's for sure.
Whatever happens happens, just disappointed to see the community in it's current state. That's about as neutral as I'll get on the subject so I'll leave it at that.
The tech and general idea behind DRK is what pulled me in, and as long as nothing drastically changes in that aspect (as in regulations/government control and such) I'm staying in.
Hey mate, you don't know me but I seen you in the BCT forum for long time
I get you are unhappy with the strategy but did you think sideways for a minute - isn't a global currency called Dash that delivers total privacy and is also used by major retailers a better way to bring privacy to the world, than a niche coin that just gets pushed further towards darknet? I mean isn't it a smarter way to get some privacy back in the real world by building that into something much bigger that the mass market will actually use?
I heard you sold your DRK, hope you buy back and don't chop your nose of to spite your face! startups are always crazy up and down but you can't give up you have to see it through!
One important thing is - level of anonymity depends not only on tech but also on number (and "quality" For example mixing with current bitcoin-mixer users can cause more problems than benefits) of users you can mixing with. That is why huge base of non-criminal users are more important for practical anonymity than ring signatures and all such "narrow niche stuff".
Good point. Phil Zimmermann, creator of PGP, always advocated to use encryption for trivial communications too to avoid the encrypted ones being identified as suspicious. Same thing with mixing.
