We study the fixed point property (FPP) in the Banach space 𝑐 0 with the equivalent norm 𝐷 . The space 𝑐 0 with this norm has the weak fixed point property. We prove that every infinite-dimensional subspace of ( 𝑐 0 , 𝐷 ) contains a complemented asymptotically isometric copy of 𝑐 0 , and thus does not have the FPP, but there exist nonempty closed convex and bounded subsets of ( 𝑐 0 , 𝐷 ) which are not 𝜔 -compact and do not contain asymptotically isometric 𝑐 0 —summing basis sequences. Then we define a family of sequences which are asymptotically isometric to different bases equivalent to the summing basis in the space ( 𝑐 0 , 𝐷 ) , and we give some of its properties. We also prove that the dual space of ( 𝑐 0 , 𝐷 ) over the reals is the Bynum space 𝑙 1 and that every infinite-dimensional subspace of 𝑙 1 does not have the fixed point property.
