Topcoin is something I have received on every paid Uniregistry transaction, but I never used any nor did I really know how to use Topcoin. In December, Uniregistry announced that it would remove Topcoin from its platform. I never made an effort to acquire or use Topcoin, so it wasn’t a big deal to me.
Yesterday afternoon, I received an email from someone named John Detjen, who let me know he is working with a few domain industry veterans to relaunch Topcoin. I don’t know John, but he mentioned that he is working with Josh Metnick, Michael Blend, and Ammar Kubba on the relaunch. The idea behind Topcoin is that it is a “a token for domain names and web services.”
There are four things that John shared with me about the relaunch of Topcoin:
– Topcoin has a new team working on a relaunch.
– Topcoin will have five dedicated people in attendance at NamesCon to help answer questions and do merchant partner outreach.
– At NamesCon, we will be launching our first Topcoin wallet app.
– We are searching for a flagship registrar merchant to connect with our 21,000+ Topcoin wallet holders. We will also be seeking additional partners who want to be a part of our ecosystem.
If you have accumulated some Topcoin and want to learn more about it – or if you are a service provider that wants to work with Topcoin, it sounds like NamesCon will be the place to connect with them.
