Did anyone from the core team notice that VCs are attacking the .bit domain, currently trying to patent it?

https://domainnamewire.com/2022/11/08/more-companies-try-to-trademark-top-level-domains/
Quote
DeID PTE LTd filed applications for .bit on October 21. The company is behind what it calls a “Cross-chain Web3 identities for you and your community“. The company raised $13 million this summer.

I wasn't able to locate the patent application. This is an especially sneaky attack on the old and established, 100% decentralized .bit of Namecoin. I'm wondering if the community should do anything.

Maybe we as a community should try to find this do.id patient application to file an objection. Who knows that their true intentions are for filing a pattent over a supposed decentralised protocol. They already stole $13m investment money based on deceptive claims.

I'd like to clarify something for everyone who is interested in or using Namecoin.

Namecoin has nothing to do with the .bit TLD or the d/ Namespace, and it was not created by Jeremy Rand or Daniel Kraft, whom are more like maintainers than developers.

Namecoin allows you to create nearly an infinite number of Namespaces.  The number of Namespaces or key/value pairs you can create is only limited by the number of available namecoins, which, like Bitcoin, is capped at 21 million.

I've done a lot of research on Namecoin over the last 8+ years, and I know for a fact that namecoin.org is not an official representation of Namecoin.

The Namecoin genesis block was mined days before the first "domain" using the .bit TLD was registered.  I had the privilege of speaking with the miner who mined all of the early "domains" in the d/ Namespace.  He told me the entire story about how vinced contacted him for assistance.

The first "domains" are mined as a proof-of-concept, followed by some "reservations" for the DOT-BIT Project, which used the dot-bit.org domain as their main website.  The DOT-BIT Project, which proposed the .bit TLD, is not Namecoin.  It is a project that only makes use of Namecoin.

Early Namecoin adopters also established a registry at register.dot-bit.org, where they sold .bit "domains" for one or two Bitcoin.

Some attempted to auction off .bit "domains" on BitcoinTalk, which was not well received by the community:

God I fucking hate domain squatters.  The scummy underbelly of the major TLDs and now in Namecoin as well.

You guys are suck fucksticks, I hope you die.  Well, if it's not you, it's some other cockgobbler doing it, so might was well make a buck, huh?

Squatting has always been a major issue, and Namecoin is no exception.

I recognize Jeremy Rand and Daniel Kraft's efforts to maintain Namecoin operational, but I am strongly opposed to namecoin.org and the rest of Namecoin's public social media profiles being completely controlled by one single persona, which I interpret as squatting and a serious attempt to hijack the entire Namecoin project.

Namecoin's price has dropped from $10-$13 since Jeremy Rand took control of those resources and domain names, and it has been unable to recover for many years.  I've seen Jeremy Rand repeatedly attack people who fork Namecoin, claiming that the forks are "hostile" and contain "malware," despite the fact that he forked Namecoin himself.

Today, Namecoin "development" (if one can call it that) is simply merging from upstream Bitcoin, as it has been for the last 11 years.

I recently discovered that between two upstream auxpow merges, Jeremy Rand and Daniel Kraft hard coded Namespaces into Namecoin Core, which is completely unacceptable.  Namecoin, as previously stated, has nothing to do with the .bit TLD and is not limited to the d/ Namespace.  Anyone who claims otherwise is hostile and deceptive.

This is an open source project, just like Bitcoin; none of you, Daniel Kraft, or Jeremy Rand own it, and none of you are in a position to say that forks are "hostile" and may contain "malware."

Namecoin is much bigger than any of you can imagine, and it has a bright future if the disgusting behavior displayed by those who control the repository on GitHub, or by those who post here nonsensical claims about other Namecoin users, is avoided.  


BayAreaCoins has been helping Namecoin for many years by providing a stable exchange where users can easily, quickly, and anonymously obtain Namecoin in exchange for Bitcoin or other coins.  Any criticism of him is completely ridiculous and unacceptable.

I strongly advise the shenanigan who are spamming this topic to find something else to play with.  You're a complete noob who has never written a single line of code (not even proposed anything positive in an acceptable manner).

I hope neither Daniel Kraft nor Jeremy Rand take this as an insult; I just wanted to make it clear that they have no control over Namecoin and may believe that they are protecting Namecoin from this shenanigan, but that is fundamentally flawed because they themselves contribute to Namecoin's complete centralization, which is not what we want.  They should seriously consider abandoning the project, especially after the recent hard coding of d/ dd/ id/ and idd/ Namespaces into a software that hasn't seen any restrictions on Namespaces in the last 11 years.

I don't think you understand what you're saying; the Namespaces d/ dd/ id/ and idd/ are very clearly hard coded into Namecoin Core, and a normal user will undoubtedly be scarred by a warning that their registration is "non-standard."

In pull request 482 Jeremy Rand and Daniel Kraft introduced so-called "applications."

Jeremy Rand stated:
Quote
Eliminates ambiguous "name" wording in favor of "domain"/"identity"/etc. Also has the happy side effect of producing a scary "non-standard name" warning...

I find it completely outrageous that after 11 years some clowns added restrictions regarding the Namespaces and has removed the "Name" wording when registering key/value pairs!  What exactly is this now?  IdentityCoin, DomainCoin?  It is certainly not Namecoin!

Regarding the domains:

  • dot-bit.org, January 2014
  • namecoin.info, January 2014
  • namecoin.org, April 2014

Daniel Kraft has owned these domains since the dates listed above.  They were previously owned by Khalahan, who hosted namecoin.info, dot-bit.org, and porn domains like wawa-porn.biz on his own web-sweet-web.net.  Khalahan is a Frenchman who used to own the bitcoin-contact.org domain.

Jeremy Rand is biolizard89, I see.  Given that Jeremy Rand's most recent post indicated that he is a squatter, this is a big concern.

I've been told by multiple good-Samaritan squatters that they have been repeatedly approached by people from the NFT community who are asking to buy high-value names for "collector" purposes; all of those good-Samaritan squatters told the NFT "collectors" to get fucked.

At this point, I demand that the GitHub repository and the namecoin.org website be completely shut down because Jeremy Rand and Daniel Kraft are clearly squatters trying to sell squatted domains, and the recent hard coding of the d/ dd/ id/ and idd/ Namespaces into Namecoin Core is motivated solely by financial interests.


Daniel Kraft attempted to sell d/bitcoin for nearly ten million dollars in April 2022, proving that Jeremy Rand is openly lying about the "good-Samaritan squatters".  Daniel Kraft also denied ownership of d/bitcoin on multiple occasions, which was proven false by examining the outputs and inputs of the following two transactions:

The d/bitcoin update on April 16, 2022 (tx), where the value "verify 2022-04-16 9:05:00 CET" is added, is used the output of the previous transaction as input, which was an update to d/xaya (tx).  Daniel Kraft founded Xaya.


This isn't the first time Daniel Kraft and Jeremy Rand have been caught lying publicly, including on BitcoinTalk, as seen above in the case of Jeremy Rand, and as seen below in the case of Daniel Kraft:

I have personally not received any of the Handshake funds and won't in the forseeable future either.

Daniel Kraft did, in fact, claim millions of dollars from handshake.org: https://www.reddit.com/r/handshake/comments/fnzwai/help_with_name_claim/, which he later successfully withdrawn.


Given the massive fraud committed by Jeremy Rand and Daniel Kraft, including money laundering, such as defrauding the NLNet Foundation, and the constant public lying, including here on BitcoinTalk as demonstrated above, threatening Namecoin users who use the Namecoin logo, or those who fork the Namecoin software, is more than enough to demand that they remove themselves from the GitHub repository and hand over all Namecoin assets, including social media and domains, to people who are not in any way associated with them.

This is the only way to keep Namecoin alive!

Daniel Kraft received a 5,000 Ethereum offer for d/bitcoin, not $750,000 as you claim.

It's ironic that you, who has been repeatedly called a troll and a noob by Jeremy Rand and Daniel Kraft, are now defending Daniel.

Info: About the actual situation of the Namecoin project please see this summary!

Correction: For the personal view about the situation of the Namecoin project by someone who's not been involved in the project/community so far, see that link.

There may be some truth to what Daniel Kraft and BayAreaCoins claim about you, because your fake Namecoin channel on Telegram https://t.me/namecoin grew from 840 "members" in September 2021 to 3,200 "members" in a year.

our main Telegram group @namecoin. I recently kicked several hundred accounts that were inactive for more than 6 months, so we have "only" around 840 active members at the moment (while the "community" around "J.R." aka biolizard89 stucks at 14 members on their main IRC channel on libera chat).

"Trade Runner" appears to be buying Telegram subscribers.  You should not be on BitcoinTalk after reading the feedback on your profile and your posts in this topic.  Your first public post about Namecoin was made in March of 2020.


You've arrived at Namecoin, just like COVID.  Perhaps you're ill or something.  Buying phoney followers for your phoney Telegram channel, where you only became admin in August of 2020.

As BayAreaCoins stated, "Trade Runner" you are a troll who should be banned from BitcoinTalk.

As far as I know, the offer for d/bitcoin was 250 ETH, and it was declined.  Do you have any proofs for your claims to the contrary?  If not, then those should be discarded as purely FUD.

Regarding the Handshake money:  It was claimed for the Namecoin team (and I believe the Handshake guys actually meant it to be distributed to past contributors, not to the project for the future).  I personally declined to receive any of that money.  Namecoin got also some reserved names on Handshake (bit for sure, and perhaps namecoin as well, I don't remember the details), which I claimed using namecoin.org DNS.

As TradeRunner already stated, I see myself mostly as code maintainer for Namecoin (and also that at the moment mainly because Namecoin is the codebase on which the Xaya project is based).  I do not want to get involved in politics, and also do not want to voice or support any strong opinion about any non-technical issue.

Don't lie, Daniel Kraft.  You claimed you were only willing to talk technical, then came here to talk yourself out of stealing millions of dollars, but you did not answer any technical issues I raised.  For instance, hard coding d/ dd/ id/ and idd/ into Namecoin Core and removing the "Name" wording from Namecoin to use it as a DomainCoin, IdentityCoin because you based Xaya on the Namecoin codebase.

Since you claimed bit/ on the handshake, you should transfer me all domain names like namecoin.org and go fuck yourself along with Jeremy Rand on the handshake blockchain where you can register xaya.bit and build it there instead of degrading Namecoin.

I can merge auxpow from upstream Bitcoin and keep it safe, there is no need for you in Namecoin, better register domob.bit, xaya.bit, and wikileaks.bit on handshake and never look back, now that you own bit/ on handshake, why are you wasting our time here?

Daniel Kraft, you're a domain squatter who has been sitting on domains for years and trying to sell them for thousands (sometimes millions) of dollars.  You also offered the d/0 key/value pair for $5,000 personally to me.  You're nothing but a filthy criminal.

Let the Namecoin project go and enjoy your new handshake.  You can now start squatting .bit domains on handshake right away because you own bit/.  Handshake also includes auctions by default, allowing you to make a quick buck.

I will manage namecoin.org and the github repository.  You can retain your access to the repository for 1 year, but not the domain name namecoin.org.

Don't even try to argue with me, Daniel; you know I'm correct.

I asked for proofs about your claims (that there was an offer for d/bitcoin of 5000 ETH, or that the owner was actively trying to sell).  You didn't provide any, and instead continue to just spread claims and FUD.  No use discussing any further.

Once again, you did not respond to anything technical.  You can either respond appropriately or close your mouth and go to the handshake blockchain for your xaya.bit, as I mentioned earlier.

Daniel Kraft, what FUD are you referring to?  Show me anything I said that isn't true.  You're absolutely hilarious.

I've never said anyone should be banned from Bitcointalk.

TradeRunner had a little "ban BAC" campaign going for a while, but that was fruitless and backfired something fierce.



I suspect Cyberterrorist and TradeRunner are the same users.  I appreciate the kinder approach to me this round because I'm way crankier than Domob or Jeremy Tongue.

So thank you!

Needless to say, taking money doesn't make someone a bad person.  If you can sell it, sell it... if it feels right.  *shrug*

Also, I don't do anything for Namecoin, except, provide a platform that allows people to buy & sell NMC with BTC if they wish.



If you don't like the way something is going, then make it yourself.  The best project will continue forward.  There is no need to try to strong-arm a .org from someone.  That's not a great look.

Do your own thing, do a good job, earn trust, use donations well, and you will replace "them" naturally.

I'm sure you said something along those lines, and if I look closely, I can find where you asked others to report him.



No.  We are not the same individual.  Fortunately.



Yes, I agree with you on the domain issue.

Also, I don't do anything for Namecoin, except, provide a platform that allows people to buy & sell NMC with BTC if they wish.

That is entirely correct; I adore your exchange; it is by far the best, if not the only, exchange for Namecoin.

I demand that the Namecoin project post a statement on namecoin.org stating that Uwe Martens is not affiliated with the Namecoin project in any way.

He continues to mislead people into believing that namecoin.org is nothing more than Jeremy Rand's "personal blog" and that namecoi[Suspicious link removed]o (namecoin(dot)pro) is the only legitimate website.

He dupes people by pretending to have 3200 members in his fake "Namecoin community" on Telegram.  He obviously buys followers.

I request that Jeremy Rand send an email from jeremy@namecoin.org to abuse@telegram.org requesting that his fake channel, which he has been using for two years to attack anything and everyone connected to Namecoin or expose his scam, be deleted.

More proof that Danial Kraft is a charlatan.

According to Daniel Kraft's official website, https://domob.eu, he claims to be the creator of the id/ Namespace in Namecoin.

Use of the id/ Namespace example: https://namebrow.se/name/id/domob/

Looking at the blockchain record for id/ (the Namespace) https://namebrow.se/name/id//, you can see that it has been owned by BM-2cXeN1HuY8h7nYAkPj1mny4Ki4wywPorwM since at least June 22, 2013, 6:31 p.m.


What is the significance of this?

This demonstrates that Daniel Kraft is currently squatting on approximately 11,000 names in the d/ Namespace that he is attempting to sell.
Not only is he attempting to sell the squatted names, but he is also attempting to extort between $3,000 and $5,000 for each name.

It should be noted that the d/ Namespace is still used today to obtain .bit domains.  That is, if you want a .bit domain, you must pay Daniel Kraft thousands of dollars.

He is also squatting in the id/ Namespace with around 280 names, such as id/a, id/b, id/c, id/schatz, id/schatzi, and even id/satoshi.

At this point, Namecoin's only option for survival is to abandon the use of the d/ Namespace, which is squatted by the criminal gang of phelix, Daniel Kraft, and Jeremy Rand, who are running around like headless chickens pretending to be "Namecoin Developers" when they are squatters who only maintain Namecoin to make a buck.

God I fucking hate domain squatters.  The scummy underbelly of the major TLDs and now in Namecoin as well.

You guys are suck fucksticks, I hope you die.  Well, if it's not you, it's some other cockgobbler doing it, so might was well make a buck, huh?
