Tradehill had control of the domain contingent to their having a running exchange. When the exchange shut down, they lost the right to use the domain. The domain is privately registered, and Tradehill has stated that they wish to maintain the actual owner's privacy in the listing. They have additionally stated that it is being developed, and isn't just stagnating.

Nope, sorry. Tongue

What is worrying is that we have no idea who is working on whatever will be the eventual site at bitcoin.com.  It could be Mt. Gox doing the same thing that TradHill did.  It could be PayPal taking over bitcoin.  It could simply be Gavin making a less-techy version of bitcoin.org.  It could be anything, but the bottom line is that we don't know what it is.  That lack of knowledge is worrying.

We've all signed NDAs before, and we all know there is a certain gray area where you could hint at something. Wink

It's owned by someone with a vested interest in the success of Bitcoin. That's good enough for me.

Sorry just created a new thread but I guess this is were to keep talking so please delete the former one. (WOW ALREADY DONE, THANK YOU MAGED)

Upto my last knowledge Jered was still on the bitcoin.com proyect (thow the "use agreement, only while TH was functioning", I doubt). I know the proyects to be done on it, but wanted to know if they are still working on them or passed the domain to bitcoin.org foundation. Either case I think that pointing the domain to bitcoin.org is a loyable action.

So, it's been a year and a half. What happened to these 'big plans'? All I see is an affiliate marketer's landing page picking up fees from Coinbase. Nice business, but not necessarily good for Bitcoin.

Myself and a few others have offered the owner alot of money and/or involvement in whatever we're gonna do with it, but he turned it down.

I'm not confident anymore the owner is vested in the long term success of Bitcoin.

Hi Charlie, I haven't seen you post in a while! I thought you were too good for us peons now.  Cheesy When you say "the owner" are you talking about Jered? I thought Jered owned it.

Such an incredible domain asset, very interesting.

Well, I suppose that leaves the door wide open for new opportunities for startups like "BitcoinWallet.com" and "CurrencyEvolution.com".

Hey Smiley

I've been working to relaunch BitInstant, and as soon as we do I'll post alot more.

Jered is not the owner, he had mutual business dealings with the owner which allowed him to use the site as a landing page.

I'm kind of pissed because the owner is just 'holding' until it has more value, where using the actual domain will give Bitcoin more exposure and increase the value.

This kind of rational I dont understand.
