BitTorrent Based DNS To Counter US Domain Seizures

i see this system being ripe for DNS poisoning. I wish good luck with this project, as this is the problem with any alternative DNS system out there… which all seem to be going for a cloud, crowd-sourced solution.P2P DNS

The domain seizures by the United States authorities in recent days and upcoming legislation that could make similar takeovers even easier in the future, have inspired a group of enthusiasts to come up with a new, decentralized and BitTorrent-powered DNS system. This system will exchange DNS information through peer-to-peer transfers and will work with a new .p2p domain extension.

In a direct response to the domain seizures by US authorities during the last few days, a group of established enthusiasts have started working on a DNS system that can’t be touched by any governmental institution.

Ironically, considering the seizure of the Torrent-Finder meta-search engine domain, the new DNS system will be partly powered by BitTorrent.
