Onename Chooses Bitcoin, Dumps Namecoin
The startup Onename made a big announcement on September 12 at the Blockstack Summit 2015.
In result, Onename will be switching from Namecoin’s blockchain to Bitcoin.
Onename is a tool that had used the Namecoin blockchain to work with decentralized identity systems (DIS).
It uses a unique way to create a ‘name’ or unique profile to accompany your online blockchain verified identity.
The open-source identity provider began its project in March 2014 with the ability to create a name instead of a binary number solution or a Bitcoin address.
