The ☰thereum Foundation DAO
(upon formation) could open-up a vote, for The Community
to suggest and discuss which TLD's (Top Level Domains) we might initially have included in the ☰thereum Domain Name System
Candidates could include:
This is just a preliminary list off the top of my head. Architecting and implementing a resilient, sensible, long-lasting, name-reg system, will be a challenging initiative. One that will require input from the broader nodal community.
Since 'eth' is also already associated with 'ETH' and 'Ether' (☰thereum's internally based cryptocurrency; token; coin; product) it may introduce unnecessary confusion if .eth
were also to serve as a TLD.
The existing combined values of the term "ETH" as a cryptocurrency and eth://
as a DPI (Decentralized Protocol Identifier) - or to use a more headache inducing technical description: eth://
as an abstraction application layer, for process-to-process distributive transmissions, across a decentralized communications value protocol - are both already substantially significant use cases.
Responsibility for the structure and management of any eth://
Top-Level Domain Names that are introduced and eventually implemented into ☰thereum, could be effectively managed by specific DAO's. These organizations would form freely and organically, at the outer edges ov ☰thereum. They could then seek consensual TLD authorization via submitting TLD proposals for The ☰thereum Foundation
to review and approve.
These types of organizations (DAGR's; Decentralized Autonomous Governing Registries) are effectively equivalent to what Domain Name Registries
are over in http://
land; where new TLD's are added into the DNS by ICANN
((extra credit for the trvly 1337))
Opening up the conversation around The ☰DNS will enable ☰thereans to have an input in the crafting of best practices for TLD addition to the ☰thereum DNS. The ☰thereum Foundation
could structure a simple contract facilitating the frictionless and effective review of these and other processes, proposals and administrative tasks pertaining to decision making that would best be served if direct input from The ☰therean Community
were taken into consensual consideration.
So here we are
deep in the transitory phase..
☰nduring the cross-over..
This period ov limbo
inwhich we now find ourcellves
makes it hard to sleep..
Ideas ov all sorts,
What is IT?
This New ☰arth 0perating ϟystem
we are imagining.....
Like Andreas Antonopoulos has mentioned so many times in the past: "Something like bitcoin, in theory, doesn't work.
Just as, wikipedia in theory, wasn't going to work.
But it works. It works really well."
By introducing such 'grandiose undertakings' like ☰thereum, we are effectively formulating the collective manifestation of a distributive, voluntarily integral, societal system. I may be headbanging with the choir
, but 'this thing' we're building is going to greatly assist us in Ðefining new social parameters and constructs, which may
aid us in our life living interactivities and ultimately in our specie's solunar cosmik evolution; beyond beyond.....
:: Carl Sagan's ghost exits the stage ::
☰thereum, like Planet Earth's mycellium network, may come to be the etheric infrastructure, or digi-astral body ov the human psyche. It can spread, propagate, and convey nodal-nutrients over great distances, eventually sprouting fruiting bodies — like our ϟacred mushrooms
do. This means that no matter how many nodes fall off the network, more shall pop into place and the cycle ov the galactick continuum sails forth Ad infinitum
think re:generative death/birth cycle.
☰thereum re:presents an orthogonal opportunity
to plug directly into
the $ocioϟpiritual ecology
ov th33 species.
There are XXXtra-dimensional KINsideRaySuns and real3Y3ϟΔZ☰Ns that shall be grasped at upon ☰thereum's emmergence within The VVorld Soul.
Realizations that lye beyond simple cognitive accessibility at this layer/realm/array ov dualistic paradigmatic receptivity (binary frequencies flying from pixels beamed by glowing screens).
☰thereum will be one ov many bridges, ϟerving and Δssisting Th33 PlanIT in its ☰xpedient Δctivation ov th33 inÐiviÐual and ☾ollecktive neurosomatic infrastructure.
Of course this is all just an angle on things.. but the DNS system of the ☰thereum protocol is a critical component for the long-term success of the ☰thereum undertaking. As is the proper establishment of The ☰thereum Foundation
- being a truly Decentralized Autonomous Organization.
Still, it's very early days.. I suppose.
