That's what they said the first time. :P
Basically this means that, on average, you can have an IP address for each of your own properties (from pencils to shoes ).
could someone explain in simple terms what this IPV6 IP address thing has to do with stopping domain name combinations from running out in 2 years?
1,000 IPs x 6,795,253,544 People = 6.79525354 × 10^12
4.4 humans born per second. 264 per minute.
(6.79525354 × (10^12)) / 264 = 2.57395967 × 10^10
Therefore, we can see that it will be 2.57395967 × 10^10 minutes until all of those are used up. Assuming we're not countering the number with deaths or altering the rate of birth.
Let's counter the number with deaths:
1.8 die every second. 108 each minute.
264 minus 108 = 156. (6.79525354 × (10^12)) / 156 = 4.35593176 × 10^10
Come and see me in 4.35593176 × 10^10 minutes, Shenron. (Approximately 82,875.414 years.)
Right. But my point was - why not just implement something like IPv8 now?
I mean, why do we intentionally limit ourselves?
