With rc5 around the corner I'm finding myself asking if they'll be an RC6. Darkcoin has achieved it's objectives with rc5 and im left wondering what's next in store.

Whatever it is, it's exciting to be a part of it.

I know there are talks about MNs being used for tor, but in terms of the coin tech, is it complete?

Darkoin has not acheved its objectives yet. It will with market adoption :)
I guess this is our RC6, a world adoption.

I think it is almost there. I'd love to see it 'let loose' soon just because at some point we need to see it tested in the real world. The tech is solid, Evan is a dream dev for any new tech and so the next step is seeing it in the wild.

But it's in the 'wild'. We just need to educate users about the identity challenge of using BTC over drk.

Not until we move past release candidates and see the open-source, etc. (and so copycoins). At some point RC drops and you just have Darkcoin. That's when it will be fun (and even more fun will be Darkcoin 2.0).

There is an awkward debate to be had at some point concerning why Bitcoin took off, namely darknet markets, and, of course, the fact that what DRK offers is even better. So should that be avoided or not is crucial because who would adapt this coin first if we are honest?

Well one can wonder just how long it will be until there is a market that only accepts darkcoin. I personally don't see it taking to long for this to happen.

Well one can hope although it is important to be sensible on such matters. I have high standards and high hopes for DRK. If any coin takes on BTC it is DRK. I am sure of that. But consider how long it has taken companies to even consider BTC. It's a long process.

Agreed but the "ground work" is already being worked on with BTC.

For example, a third world country coming into todays times does not need a land line phone because a cell phone already exists. The technology grew on itself and as a result home phones were not even installed. So lets hope someone somewhere is working on an integration system with versions of LocalBitcoins and electrum. It's times like these I really wish I could develop this but I'm just over here looking at porn. :eek::D

Just kidding.. Im all in DRK. You know that means I'm just lurking in the corner. :oops:
