Whats the general plan here? No reduction in names/block I assume? Won't this make the first blocks incredible valuable and later blocks less valuable as the goodness of remaining names declines? Maybe it should start really low (1?) and move up gradually to a stable amount (100?)?
That's interesting. I guess we adopt that.
Yikes. That's just what rolled off my fingers in a second, there may be a much more clever way.
Maybe even link it to the log of difficulty or something. That way if it becomes a huge global thing there can be lots of addresses quickly, but if it stays small creating addys will still require a contribution to securing the network.
The blocks/hour is free to be changed too, don't forget.
