I think Namecoin can be an interesting diversification for BTC holders.

Not so much that I'm confident in the project (not nearly as I am in Bitcoin), but you can invest 1-2% of your BTC in Namecoin just for the heck of it.

I really dislike the name "Namecoin" ... BitDNS was much better, I'm wondering why they chose one over the other, but well ... yeah, I do not plan to invest in Namecoin really but it may be because of the name only Grin so others who are more courageous to experiment, let us know how it goes if you do invest in it Wink

Bitcoin competes with gold and central banks.

"BitDNS" is a mouthful and doesn't mean anything to non-techies.

"Namecoin" is more human, and connotes the relationship to Bitcoin.

"Dot-bit" is the future of bitdns/namecoin because it captures the best elements of both, and suggests its function as the domain extension for bitcoin sites.

The difference between bad and well-developed digital cash will determine whether we have a dictatorship or a real democracy.  -David Chaum 1996
Resiliency, not efficiency, is the paramount goal of decentralised, non-state sanctioned currency -Jon Matonis 2015
The raison d'etre of bitcoin is trustlessness. - Eric Lombrozo 2015
The only way to make software secure, reliable, and fast is to make it small. Fight Features. - Andy Tanenbaum 2004
Crypto is the separation of Power and State.

"Monero" : { Untraceable - Anonymous - Fungible - Trustless - Adaptive Blocksize - 100% PoW & FOSS - No ASIC or Premine - Wallets - Buy Local - Podcats - Roadmap - XMR.to } -Tacotime 2015

"Hard forks cannot be controversial things" -Peiter Wuille
"Blocksize is an intentionally limited resource, like the 21e6 BTC limit.  Changing it degrades the surrounding economics, creating negative incentives" -Jeff Garzik.
"Gavin is the only committer to Bitcoin core who supports this [20MB block] proposal....the rest of us have significant concerns" -gmaxwell


If Bitcoin was fungible, CoinJoin and CT would not exist.

"Bitcoin is a settlement system, by design."


Bitcoin users might get increasingly tyrannical about limiting the size of the chain so it's easy for lots of users and small devices.  - Satoshi Nakamoto 2010

"Current payment systems simply can’t compete with bitcoin’s fees, security and convenience.  As a currency, no sovereign can match it.  As a payment system, no financial institution can compete with it.  As a distributed network, no government can stop it."     -Chris Horlacher

Bitcoin and Monero are the anvils upon which we shall smash the State.

I don't know of any nmc/btc charts yet. The only existing exchange only went up less than 2 weeks ago so not much data anyway. Currently people are estimating their value based on the difficulty ratio between both block chains plus a little premium.

I definitely think diversifying your holdings to namecoin is a good idea. If a cross miner is created then the namecoin network would be able to become as secure as bitcoin's and merchants would probably start accepting it as payment. Since namecoins have at least one more use than bitcoins then it's not inconceivable that they end up being more valuable.

I invested in namecoin and if I sold them all at the current ask price then I would have tripled my investment.

It's a good hedge against BTC. As BTC price goes down, NMC price goes up. But it's even better than being that simple, because NMC difficulty catches up faster, so NMC value goes up in that way, too. Basically NMC price will most likely go up no matter what, with a bonus if BTC goes down. Instead of selling BTC for dollars, I think it's better to sell BTC for NMC. Especially since the next difficulty will be 4.6 times the current one and will start at an estimated time of within 24 hours.

For diversification, I spent some of my BTC on NMC. That way I'm not totally bummed out when BTC goes down. I'm confident BTC will go up in the long run, but it makes it easier to deal with the swings.

Nothing stops you from calling it BitDNS yourself.  Perpaps that name will catch on. That's the beauty of decentralisation.

BitDNS :  the overarching project.

Namecoin: the things you buy in order to buy domain names.

dot-bit :  the ecosystem around BitDNS

I wonder if, in the future when we also have FastCoin, SlowCoin, and YourMomsCoin, there will be an IndexCoin that indexes all the different coins like S&P does to the stock market.

And ... we're almost there. I give the IndexCoin (or more likely, a client that maintains a balance of the current coins via trading on the different exchanges automatically to achieve an investment portfolio composed of the coins selected by the user) a few more months before it appears.
