Just some clarification…
I’m not against Public ID auctions by MaidSafe or domain squatting by Private Individuals. If it works, go for it! See my quote from the Public ID’s thread below.
Special note: I don’t think MaidSafe or MaidSafe Foundation wants to
pre-sell the most popular names. But I’m also not against them doing it
to help themselves and the community by funding future development.
Many Public ID’s will find their way to those who “want” them more. Obviously, those with money will acquire them, unless we go with @bitbybit’s suggestion below.
Therefore, I propose that all current registered domains on clearnet are reserved by maidsafe or other trusted party, and provided to their current owners at their request, without an expiration date and free of charge (or applying a cost based, processing fee structure).
My main focus is on the SAFE Network Economy, not individuals or groups. I want the Network to have very good Safecoin circulation, which encourages a growing economy and benefits all of us. Perhaps the Network could charge a (Public ID ownership change Fee) instead of the extra PUT registration cost. This could fund the Network indefinitely.
As for individual interests, they are free to do what they want. Those motivated by money or charity will start trading when Public ID’s hit the market.
