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

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.

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

a) 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.

I must admit I'm mildly skeptical about short-lived marketing campaigns for altcoins. Most of them fail because they seem to expect "immediate results", or call it "a quick buck".
If Alexoz has an elaborate idea how to attract long-term attention to Namecoin, though, then I'd say welcome to the team.

Some links for the interested, no idea if this stuff works

https://dotbit.me/

http://dns.dot-bit.org/ old website needs to be updated

https://bit.namecoin.org/

A few of 'Satoshi's' last quotes regarded what turned into Namecoin

@dtvan: all 3 excellent points.
1) IP records don't need to be in the chain, just do registrar function not DNS.  And CA problem solved, neat.
2) Pick one TLD, .web +1.
3) Expiration and significant renewal costs, very important.

However, thinking more about this now I support inclusion of additional coinbases / tracking systems in the main network. The reason for doing this is so as not to water down CPU power into multiple networks. We want one strong network, so the network should be versatile.
Avoiding CPU power fragmentation is no longer a reason.  Independent networks/chains can share CPU power without sharing much else.  See: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1790.msg28696#msg28696 and http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1790.msg28715#msg28715


Quote from: Wikipedia link=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Namecoin
In September 2010 a discussion was started in the Bitcointalk forum about a hypothetical system called BitDNS and generalizing bitcoin, based on a talk at IRC at 14 November 2010. Gavin Andresen and Satoshi Nakamoto joined the discussion in the Bitcointalk forum and supported the idea of BitDNS. A reward for implementing BitDNS was announced at the Bitcointalk forum in December 2010. Soon a developer decided to implement this idea to earn this reward. On April 18, 2011 Namecoin was introduced by Vinced (Rumored to be Vincent Durham) as a multipurpose and distributed naming system based on bitcoin. It was inspired by the BitDNS discussion on the Bitcointalk forum. WikiLeaks mentioned the project via Twitter in June 2011.

Is it required to download the Namecoin blockchain to resolve .bit addresses? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.bit

If there is some portal that easily connects .bit to other internets?
