Let's get all of us on Slack!

Why don't you just message domob or one of them? Send them a pm? If you have something specific you want to do then you can mention it here too.

You know, a lot of things do not trequire gang effort. For 'marketing' do you want somebody to give you money to 'market' it? If you have means you can make another Namecoin website with updated info and promote it, or put ads that lead to one of the already existing sites.

Agree that awareness of the importance of free speech and how Namecoin can figure in that is important. But 'marketing' is a harsh term, this isn't a streetwhore like ethereum, it's a coin started in the way cryptocurrency should start.

Perhaps you are starting to realize that talk of "marketing" is very premature.

Ok I've been through Namecoin. I see that there are more improvements needed. But using the word "marketing", frankly speaking, is all the bag holders need to hear since they lost plenty of money.

I've got free time and energy.

I'm here! Any developers around???

What proposal are you offering?

Is it a secret?

If you have something to say or some idea that requires more people then why not say what your idea is?

Open Source works.

You posted some links but it seems you didn't spend much time at any of them:
https://namecoin.org/resources/chat/

If you not a dev yourself with something tangible to contribute then you may be just wasting your & their time.

He does not have to be a dev. He has offered to start a 'marketing' aspect of Namecoin, which obviously it doesn't have. If he has ideas that popularize the idea of decentralizing the internet, that is good.

Only problem some people might have is that 'marketing' often  means hyping and pushing. Namecoin offers something real, not too many people know about it. So long as somebody isn't mixing it with cocaine or hiring a televangelist to promote it, publicity is good.

He just hasn't said what his ideas or plans might be, but whatever they are, they are more than what most of us are doing, and that's something.

tsoloalex@gmail.com send me an invite!

Guys IRC is not good. Slack keeps record of the conversations...

I haven't had much time to look cuz I'm already busy with Decred. But I've some free time and will be glad to help growing the namecoin community. Nobody is expecting Namecoin to rally...

Some trader views on Namecoin

"We cannot compare namecoin with decred. Decred is magnitudes better in its voting system and has a really active developing team as opposed to Namecoin. I can see Namecoin rally in about 2-3 months, but nothing crazy like Decred, unless I am missing something in this puzzle..."

You are missing something. lol

Namecoin is the highest quality altcoin, built on a solid longterm foundation, clean as a whistle. It will have people building on it a thousand years from now, even if it is worth a penny.

Decred has some sort of novel ideas, but nothing groundbreaking. It only stands out for the massive payoff it is producing for a few people, before it disappears, probably within a year or two.

A lot of new people come to something and they look at a few superficial things and are sure they know what's under the hood.

Coins you should actually look under the hood and see what they are about. Namecoin has an honest purpose. Some people will make money with it, some will lose money, but after the money is spent something important remains. Namecoin is probably the best 'silver' to bitcoin's 'gold', if you research it a bit.

You do realize we have a Matrix channel, right?  Why would a decentralized free software project want to use Slack?

Is there Trezor for Namecoin? A friend is asking me... I really have to read through the docs Wink

Not at the moment, but this situation might improve in the foreseeable future.

Since this thread seems to have exploded in the past week, I'll try to briefly summarize my thoughts on this as a developer.

Namecoin's documentation is certainly somewhat lacking.  This is because none of us specializes in documentation; we simply document things in our spare time when we're not coding.  We'd love help on this; our website accepts pull requests (in fact, there's a link at the bottom of every page to submit a pull request).  If improving documentation (and by "documentation" I mean all of the website) qualifies as "marketing", then by all means help us on this if you like.  Probably best to talk to us on Matrix (or start a GitHub issue in the namecoin.org repo) before you expend too much time.

In the past, the few times that 3rd parties have done "marketing" on our behalf (or said that they're doing so on our behalf), the end result has been more harm than good.  For this reason, I have learned to be extremely cautious when unknown people propose marketing operations for Namecoin.

In practice, the most effective public relations operations we've done have been speaking at conferences.  (ICANN58 went really well, as did QCon London 2017 and DWS 2016.  GETD#4 also went really well, although we didn't give an officially scheduled talk there.)

I think the primary barrier to wider adoption at the moment is simply that Namecoin is difficult to install and difficult to use securely.  Hugo and I have been working on improving that situation.  Once that situation is resolved, public awareness certainly becomes more relevant, as do various other issues that we face (privacy comes to mind here, and scalability will matter at some point too).

If anyone wants to help us with this but isn't a coder, taking some of the documentation work off of our hands would probably be a great way to help.  Is there some information that should be clearly documented on the website but isn't?  Create a GitHub issue for it or submit a pull request.  Several of us are pretty easy to reach via Matrix (or IRC for those who prefer it -- our IRC is bridged to Matrix), and we're happy to facilitate stuff.

What I *don't* think we need is, say, a giant advertising campaign.  I won't rule it out forever, but we're not at the point where that's going to be beneficial -- all it will accomplish is cause lots of technically unsophisticated people to try Namecoin, realize that it's too hard to use right now, and then not want to try it again in the future when the UX is more polished (and many of those people will sap our time on Matrix answering questions before they decide to call it quits).

Anyway, that's my take as a Namecoin developer.  I look forward to hearing your ideas on Matrix.  Smiley
