SixEleven (611) is a decentralised peer-to-peer cryptocurrency on Namecoin technology that allows everyone to register names. Once a name is registered successfully, no-one can take it away from you without your consent. You can associate and publish data with it that everyone can be sure is originated from you but which can neither be forged nor censored by unauthorised attackers.
Each 611 (SixEleven) record consists of a key and a value which can be up to 520 bytes in size. Each key is actually a path, with the namespace preceding the name of the record. The key <code>d/myname</code> signifies a record stored in the DNS namespace <code>d</code> with the name <code>myname</code> and corresponds to the record for the <code>myname.611.to</code> website. Like with Namecoin the content of <code>d/myname</code> is expected to conform to the DNS namespace specification.
The current fee for a new record is 0.1922 SIL, the fee for an update, renewal or transfer is 0.0611 SIL.
