btcguild = "so far, so good"
Some things to look forward to:
Secure Login Systems
Namecoin Torrent Client (decentralized/censorship resistant)
Fair Name Trading (buy/sell namecoin names in your client safely)
Namecoin Instant Messenger (secure messaging system)
Secure Web Browsing .bit domains
and much more...
That all sounds really great, can't wait for these features to be developed. Do you have any idea about timeline, when any of those items will be released?
I like namecoin, I do believe it has a lot of potential and at the same time I am wondering why all new 'fun-alt-coins' seem to have a better accessibility?
What strikes me every time I am trying to find a mac-wallet for namecoin, that I don't seem to be able to find one, unless I am compiling it myself, right?
(and that is not going to happen because I am not that tech-savvy) I feel like with the dot-bit forum, namecoin.info and namecoin.org - there are too many resources that all look very different that it is hard to tell which one is legit and more importantly the right source of information.... I can imagine that this simple fact alone is a huge hurdle for a wider adoption, let alone the missing mac-wallet software.
What I would wish for is an official entity that has credibility to organize web-presence and offers downloads of official software (with pgp and or md5).
All these softwares from to be downloaded at mediafire, box.com etc... don't really create a lot of trust, in my opinion.
I just wanted to put that out there as I believe, getting these things sorted out would greatly benefit the namecoin-environment.
On a different note: Does somebody know if www.namecoin.org
is legit? It has a wide range of wallets available for downloads but I can't find credits on that site... which makes it suspicious to me.
