As hard as it may seem... IMHO Things are in play now. Now let's sit back and see what's what. I am very VERY certain that at this point there are lawyers involved and people meeting on what's to happen next. I'm willing to chill and see how this plays out. One thing is for certain... If lawyers and legalities are involved... This will take time, that's how it works. In mean time grab a glass of wine/beer/Scotch and relax folks.

Why would you change the name to a name that is a ready taken by a financial product-solution? And decide to challenge their trademark? A pre-existant financial and you want to name a financial the same name and challenge the first. I'm not going to call that like what it sounds out loud....

As I said, I'm not even certain that is the company. I'd have to look at the minutes from the last board meeting.

Whether that's the one or not, nobody owns a trademark on Dash. Someone has simply applied for one, and they are a start up, not established by any means, and younger than Darkcoin if I recall correctly. This is something of a foot race. The board is confident that we can obtain rights to the name, but this is one of the reasons this was not made public - it's not yet a certainty.

Why would you change the name to a name that is a ready taken by a financial product-solution? And decide to challenge their trademark? A pre-existant financial and you want to name a financial the same name and challenge the first. And more than 1 pre-existant financial with the name Dash? Is somebody trying to sabotage Darkcoin?

I'm not going to call that like what it sounds out loud.... At least not until I get really disappointed... Don't you guys use google? So who's the dummy here? Me? maybe... I'm trying not to comment too much on the name change but it seems like we don't necessary have the smartest cookies here... Please feel targeted...

None of them are just called dash... also, lets call darkcoin 'digital cash'; cash is not trademarked.. and if people start using the word DASH, well, we cant help that ;)

Did you really expect for a common term to be exclusive in the world in this day and age.

I also have Google, here is an example:

Financial institutions that use the term Circle and are not the cryptocurrency Company:

You edited those links in as I was responding.

With respect, I think your argument is a bit weak. "Financials" is a very broad brush, and none of those have the specific name we want nor do any of them do what we do.

Hahaha sorry buddy minotaur you must take for an idiot, you are comparing the use of the word circle and the word Dash.

Believe me I'm also tired as seeing you guys so ineffective as a foundation. You have the worst PR people I have ever encountered and I havn't seen anything from the foundation as far as common business sense yet, or results, I'm still waiting. Come on hate me! prove to me you guys are really good! And can do better than use the same ****** name as the rothschilds financial product and say its not just called dash...

Also as an investor in Darkcoin and the only person to create a Darkcoin business so far as I know... Hate me if you want, if it makes you guys better that's ok! :)

Thats fair... :) And with respect I think you're argument is weak and possibly maybe even (edited)

I'm going to get hated today... lol but thats ok as long as its good for Darkcoin because that is where my heart is, you are a founder and you want the same name as the rothchilds? and others ... What is going on here? Is this a coincidence?

We ARE competing with Western Union. InstantX could put them out of business.

"Today, the impact of remittances is recognized in all developing regions of the world, constituting an important flow of foreign currency to most countries and directly reaching millions of households – approximately 10 per cent of the world’s population."
That was a joke, but you couldn't see my tongue-in-cheek. :)

Dude you are extremely confused, I am not in the foundation board. I am a member of the foundation just like you. I am just active in trying to help, this is a volunteering project if you feel you can do better than others just go ahead and do it no one is stopping you.

Give this whole process a few weeks. Legal things need to play out before we jump to conclusions. I would love for you to elaborate specifically on what the harm is naming the instant finance solution Digital Cash or DASH if we are able to obtain a trademark and other legal items? I know there are other companies and products named DASH, but I trust the lawyers who are involved in or hired by the foundation.

I'm not too worried about it. Either way... Things always work. And besides... Things were getting a bit boring around here till this happened. Successful releases of features, the odd troll, and child Harold all boring. Hell this kicked up the community in quick hurry... For a second I thought I was going to see some fists flying... Any takers? I'm game for a Lil woop ass ;).

Seriously.. If anything this has solidified my believe that you folks are the best cryptography community out there. Let's have some faith in our Dev and company... So far... I've done well by keeping the faith ;). Evan is no dummy and it will probably come out he had this planned for long time already. I've seen that same quality in other leaders as well. And frankly why I bought in Jan/Feb 14...he was a man of action and put his real name behind it... Rare in the crypto world.

It is important to point out weaknesses and that is why this thread is here. I would wager that constructive criticism and ideas are looked upon and responded to better than the post I quoted from you.

I welcome your ideas, just be constructive if you want real responses and to be taken seriously. Be warned: many of the questions you have simply won't be answered until the core foundation team comes to a final decision and entirely figures out legal. It would be idiotic to announce anything before that time and just add to the confusion.

It's the way you're going about it that's wrong. You're a fellow Canadian, you should have better people skills than that. You may be right, but you're coming across as a douche right now.

Yes, meaning when Circle a large VC funded crypto company was founded, a few months ago there were already many financial institutions with that name. But that name is only meaningful in the crypto sphere. Our name will mean something to our target market. That was my point.

I know what you were trying to say... Its just that you chose to use one of the most common words in the english vocabulary to justify naming Darkcoin Dash...
