Company wants to trademark ".Coin" for top level domain names

Andrei Mincov's commentary on the original article
It's one thing to attempt to trademark the top-level domain names that have already been announced. Clearly, that makes the name generic. It's completely different when you first get a trademark that is subsequently chosen by ICAAN as a top-level domain. Imagine, ICAAN choosing to make .apple available to the public. The problem with these applications is that they are so easy to invalidate based on providing fraudulent information to USPTO. A "Delaware registered company formed specifically for the implementation of Domain registry operator services for the .coin Top Level Domain (TLD)." Really?
