I dont agree with that only because of Betamax vs VHS. Not always the best wins, but who deploys and markets first.The name is a powerful thing and destroying it and the identity is a clever socially engineered takedown of Darkcoin from our 'competitors'.
The Darkcoin team can not taken out by FUD, trolls and hacking attempts, as they are too strong, this is done from a different angle in order to separate and weaken us.
Consider that something feels very wrong when Vertoe says she is leaving, the core programmers take precedence before anyone else, they are more important than vague promises from big companies that they will use Darkcoin in the future and after all, the superb coders are what has put Darkcoin where it is today and not some 3rd party marketing company.
When the time is right and you have achieved all that the masternodes and IX are capable of, the big companies will not care about the name because by then it will not matter, instead concentrate on building up and strengthening the beating heart of the masternode network.
This in turn, will form the backbone of the internet in the future, and is how it should be,
please do not walk down a different path.
vertoe has been displaying a lot of resentment for some time. He is sort of the "Darth Vader" here, he does want to represent the wrong meaning of the word dark, with high emphasis on the dark markets and subversion. That can be huge, but in essence a niche, albeit huge.
What Evan proposed has dimensions of hugeness greater, with a clean honest face. We has lost brilliant before all of a sudden (chaeplin) no one ever found out why, but he did. It was a damn shame, but it not the end of the world. Not to mention the Ape-shit (pun intended)
And while yes, a company name has a (legal) product and brands it silly and it is a champion, good on them!
When its a financial instrument, we can never hope to deploy big with the name Darkcoin, that is self-evident!
A like I said so many times, one does not negate the other. We can have a clean face, and the code and infrastructure in place to help out on the deep web, be it subversion, or empowering the oppressed, while say, have a third party fully loaded with AML practicing a totally different game. But they'll never get an AML with a coin named Darkcoin.
vertoe, pleeease chill out and come back and participate in this debate, at least.
