So any news come out of the ICANN conference?

He said at least he was going to post his presentation slides.

A summary of how things went at ICANN58 (including my slides) should be posted in circa 2-3 days.  (It's already written, I'm just giving the other Namecoin devs a few days to request any changes that might be needed.)  Sorry for the delay -- as with most free software projects, writing stuff in English tends to take a backseat to writing stuff in (insert programming language here).

Seems it'll be another few days, as one of the developers requested changes to the news post I wrote, so the review process has to be restarted.  Apologies for the delay on this -- I realize people are interested in hearing how things went.

My wallet is stuck at 150 weeks behind but I have 8 connections, does anyone have a solution?

What version of Namecoin are you using?

Agree on that. Definitely need some marketing, website revamp, make it more user friendly. And a lot of social media exposure.


To quote from the net: "If upgrades never happen, progress in Bitcoin will stagnate, and developers will migrate to other ecosystems." The same applies to the Namecoin.

 

Given that Namecoin activated a softfork in the last month, I don't think we're particularly at risk of never upgrading.  More developers/volunteers wouldn't hurt though.  (I suppose more funding wouldn't hurt either, though that's harder.)

I'd love to hear suggestions on how we could do a better job on this.

Perhaps, some additional work on the features of the coin, that would appeal to the greater audience. If there is no displeasure with the idea of the more "financial" coin.

а) Some work on the features enabling greater swiftness of the transactions (segwit, lightninings, the like). Regular info updates on this work.

b) Clearly, visibly, outlined emphasis on those privacy/security features, which differentiate the n. from the other coins, or put it in the same league with the more advanced ones (in terms of privacy, security)

c) It appears that at the moment namecoin mostly covers the narrow field: "bit" domains, etc. So, some additional emphasis can be made on the other things, and the website design can embody this (more simple finance-oriented sections separated from the more specialized bit/dns-oriented sections).

I am not sure, though, if my ideas make any sense, and are not just a waste of time and efforts for the devs.

Is this still actively being developed? Haven't heard much about Namecoin in the last few years...
Is it dead?

Old coin, but I never actually looked into it. Will do that now since it is still active.

I don't see much reason to try to compete with Bitcoin, if that's what you mean by "financial".  Bitcoin already works extremely well at what it does.  Remember the Unix philosophy.  Smiley

а) Some work on the features enabling greater swiftness of the transactions (segwit, lightninings, the like). Regular info updates on this work.

We recently activated CLTV; up next in the consensus fork department is AAA, then CSV, and then I think we'll activate SegWit.  That said, we pretty much always follow what Bitcoin does, so if by some chance SegWit is still being held up in Bitcoin, I think it's somewhat unlikely that we'll try to activate before Bitcoin.

I really like Lightning, and we have some plans where Lightning will be highly useful.

b) Clearly, visibly, outlined emphasis on those privacy/security features, which differentiate the n. from the other coins, or put it in the same league with the more advanced ones (in terms of privacy, security)

Privacy/security is a strong focus for me at the moment.  On the privacy front, while I was in London for QCon last month, I met up with Riccardo Spagni from Monero to discuss collaboration plans; I'm also engaging with the Tor people.  On the security front, one of the use cases that we're really pushing is TLS... hopefully an announcement will be made soon on this front.

c) It appears that at the moment namecoin mostly covers the narrow field: "bit" domains, etc. So, some additional emphasis can be made on the other things, and the website design can embody this (more simple finance-oriented sections separated from the more specialized bit/dns-oriented sections).

See my above comment on the Unix philosophy.  There are lots of blockchains that specialize in being a currency (mainly Bitcoin); we specialize in naming.  That said, I see plenty of room for diversification into identity-related applications.  Daniel Kraft's NameID is a really cool proof of concept; I have some ideas on how it could be improved.  There are several other use case ideas that have been thrown around, and just no one has had a chance to work on them yet.

I am not sure, though, if my ideas make any sense, and are not just a waste of time and efforts for the devs.

No worries.  Smiley

Am I correct in assuming that the purpose of this coin is similar to some kind of decentralized GoDaddy?

Not GoDaddy but more like a decentralized ICANN;  DNS.

"Namecoin is an experimental open-source technology which improves decentralization, security, censorship resistance, privacy, and speed of certain components of the Internet infrastructure such as DNS and identities..."

"Namecoin was the first fork of Bitcoin and still is one of the most innovative “altcoins”. It was first to implement merged mining and a decentralized DNS. Namecoin was also the first solution to Zooko’s Triangle, the long-standing problem of producing a naming system that is simultaneously secure, decentralized, and human-meaningful."

ICO s raising mountains of money these days off the backs of bitcoin,namecoin et al=greed is good and it pays the bills while selfless opensource projects struggle for funds and fizzle out.Look at all these gold toothed gangsta rich ICO rappers stomping about the place after swapping the jungle juice and koolade for remy martin and chateau de whorehouse.Namecoin needs some of that ICO action and raise a few hundred mill for some namebooty.
