This chain although was community based is dead in terms of value.
Freely produced coins will kill the value of the coins unless someone with some large pocket change wants to invest heavily into it...but will likely lose some value in their investment because of the illiquid market conditions.
Not necessarily going by this, name-coins are freely produced are they dead?
Actually going by allchains.info they seem to be doing fine. 0.007+ Rates.
Ixcoins are being mined freely atm they are worth 0.0003 for many many months.
Being mined freely doesn't necessarly kill the value.
I am just saying that i0coins with a lot of community work put into it, a new logo,
Fixes to the problem, you even mentioned that once the 50% bug was fixed
you would put the exchange back up Doublec. It was in the red text on the site, mentioning
about until its fixed its being taken down, it was something like that.
The thing is if you do put the exchange back up, that will hugely increase the value of the currency.
If everyone takes Namecoin down of course it will crash a lot in value.
Same thing occured to i0coin here as it had the 50% bug. Give it a chance.
It won't cost you a thing opening the exchange, and
to be honest you will profit off the fees.
There is no risk DoubleC.
You can make the difference just be part of the community and try to push it as well.
A driven community currency I believe has its potential.
Give it a chance.
And to top things off I can offer a 25,000 i0coin Bounty DoubleC, if you reopen it.
