Thought this was a really interesting way to highlight the fact that there's an open directory of Bitcoin users directly embedded in the blockchain. Our site, onename.io, uses this same directory and our users get added to it soon after they sign up.
Would you recommend bitcoinusername.com to a friend?

Nice work @ryaneshea. What are some of the use cases you are seeing for this search engine?

Have you been working on other ways in which to leverage the blockchain's potential as an open/secure directory?

I'm confused about how this works -- isn't the best practice to use unique bitcoin addresses only once?
