Zeit is time in German

Relevance of Geist is, well, obvious  Cheesy

And it sounds nifty

Does GG have plans to address the 51% exploit that exists?

You mean the Fundamental Exploit of 51% as described in Satoshi's paper or the "attacker with 51% screwing up diff without invalidating blocks"?

The former can be sort-of addressed with a clever implementation of licensed mining, I suspect, but that is my bellyfeel nothing more.

The latter is solved already, like, at the moment of reset.

You have any intentions of creating licensed mining?

Not at this point, but should an actual proposal for a sufficiently versatile scheme emerge, I would definitely consider it.

Zeitgeist was a shitty movie and 'time-travel attacks' sounds much cooler.

Personally I am going with the time warp attack.
