Namecoin had a problem that someone registered lots of DNS for pennies since price was not locked to something.
BipCoin solved this by pegging it with Gold.


I am not a PRO but listened one podcast with their interview and since i like Criptonight in general kept it in my memory.  BipCoin solving this problem way better then Namecoin

Interesting idea. I will do some reading on this over the weekend.

A 'free internet' is a great idea, but remember that most connections are going over equipment owned by large corporations- ATT/ Verizon in the US, I believe Virgin in the UK,  Deutsche Telekom in Germany etc...
so there may always be some form of censorship available since these companies are usually directly tied to the government.

Because many people seem to be misinterpreting Namecoin's role, I'll quote the source:
Quote
The ICANN community appears to be reasonably accepting of Namecoin’s role as an alternative to DNS; Namecoin makes different tradeoffs from DNS, is therefore likely to be optimal for a different userbase, and can co-exist with DNS in its current state.
https://namecoin.org/2017/04/17/icann-58-summary.html

This means that ICANN recognizes Namecoin as an alternative and doesn't want to interfere. The developers would like to avoid a "collision" that'd cause .bit ending up becoming an ICANN TLD.

Honestly, and without offense, some people seem to be misinterpreting icann's role.

edit to add
After I posted that I noticed another post I had made in a moderated thread was deleted, and my reaction is to simply discredit the person trying to control the conversation through 'moderation' of other peoples' comments.

Speech, conversation, etc can be very useful, it has importance. But when it is hijacked by one special interest then it becomes trivial. A person is free to surf through icann's world wide web. They can find a lot of good sites and a lot of bad sites. The one thing though they can count on, is that any sites that offend major commercial interests in the United States will be taken down by icann. Is that really what the internet should be about?

I'm just spreading awareness about this coin. I don't own any at the moment! Just to let you know...
