What did the Americans ever do for us ?

That's a pure propaganda article sadly so typical for the BBC these days.

ICANN is based in LA and currently all you need to do is get an injuction from a local LA court to hyjack any domain you want or even a whole country top level domain (as happened with .ir / Iran a few days ago, the .ir top level domain has been given to some jewish association by a LA judge! :wacko: )

So the sooner ICANN moves away from the US to some international body such as the ITU or the UN the betterfor everybody.

This is what Namecoin is about.

The name is misleading. it is not a 'coin', it uses a decentralised ledger based on that of Bitcoin, to implement a distributed domain name registry. In principle, only the person who holds the private cryptographic key to a particular domain name can alter the ownership, entries for DNS, etc. It is outside the reach of ICANN.

Namecoin domains use the the .bit TLD.

Like it! I will check that out.

Got so fed up with listening to Max Keiser pumping bitcoin, I kind of been ignoring it for the last 18 months - hence namecoin slipped past me.
