Why do I feel like I'm the only one who is clearing up the FUD being spread about blockchains here?

Alaric's description is not accurate.

1. You do not deal with "bunch of base56".
2. You do not buy NMC.
3. You do not go to exchanges.
4. You don't even need to use Namecoin, as that is not the only blockchain that is used for this purpose (you could use Nxt or Bitshares DNS (BDNS), both of which have DNSChain forks in development, with BDNS support coming very soon to the master branch of DNSChain).

I explained already how it would work here:


You are free to reply to that email.

Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA.
