Namecoin developers keep close ties with the community, which will make the project better. Landing as soon as possible is the only way out for the development of the project, otherwise there will be no improvement. Cool

That is what a true stable coin should be - costing the same amount of USD no matter the time. More legit and open-minded than Tether.
Sadly that's just irony.

Jokes aside, I lean to think that traders started massively take USD profits on WEX and pump lower-volume coins there (Peercoin, Namecoin and Novacoin), since these coins outpaced the general market for 2-3 days.

Had not heard of wex before

Anyway Namecoin is a lot like early bitcoin, in that it is a chance for new people to buy and hold a very high quality coin probably.

a) Only two coins afaik that Satoshi Nakamoto was involved with, bitcoin and namecoin.

b) Namecoin 14.7m coins @ 0.00023 btc or usd2.2
    Bitcoin 16.7m coins at xxxxxxxxxxxxxx     usd10,000

It's hard to find a coin with a better early history. The second coin after bitcoin to exist, and the first coin with a real world use

ex-BTC-e. It's not a small exchange, especially for Namecoin - its trading volume on Wex amounts more that all other exchanges together (Poloniex, Cryptopia, Altcoin Trader) and the only one to offer a fiat pair for NMC.

Despite Namecoin had a good start and the community, mostly cryptoanarchists at that time, expected it to become a truly immutable DNS service - I sincerely doubt it will ever regain at least a fraction of that faith. The time Namecoin has had to prove valuable and usable - passed away.

If Namecoin had followed the path Darkcoin did - being aggressively ran by a large team of keen developers and marketers, we wouldn't have now lamented how poorly has Namecoin withstood the Bitcoin run and lagged behind the entire altcoins run.

Pretty sure namecoin proved it was useful.

Pretty sure namecoin proved it was useful. 

Remains to be seen if coins will decentralize the internet.

Right now Namecoin is touching its highs for market cap in the last couple years and the technicals look good.

Here are the only downsides I see.

a) It was associated in some way with somebody who was a hacker or something on btc e, not sure what that story is, but possibly might put some people off.

b) It is the only coin, as far as I know, that takes a deliberate dig at a state government, and is likely to be targeted by that government.
1) Aaron Swartz is potentially the most powerful recent symbol of government intimidating honest people. He was a brilliant tech type, an honest guy of the highest integrity. The U.S. government tried to dig up a fake crime so they could bully him into working for them. He declined. there is no doubt a lot of effort has been put into preventing his story from becoming a legend. The U.S. government, and many other governments, make an industry of criminalizing honest people, then forcing those honest people to criminalize their friends so more and more people are under the control of a bunch of petty gangster punk thugs who are not able to compete with integrity. Aaron swartz is potentially governments' worst nightmare and Namecoin is one of his last footprints, so far.
2) The United States has control of the internet. The U.S. government can remove any website in any country, or do it as a favor to an agency in any country, and typically that power is not used in a benevolent way. Namecoin could become a threat to that power and it is likely the U.S. government, and others, are active in trying to hobble Namecoin.

Namecoin, and crypto generally, are not threats to honest people. They can be used to progress a lot of things that need progressing.

Whether this coin will overcome the threats, who knows.

Greetings, friends at Namecoin! As Komodo Platform has been working around the clock to fine-tune the multiple GUI's that are the face of our Agama multiwallet and BarterDEX atomic swap protocols, there have obviously been many bugs found and many debugged. However, one bug in particular was found not only in our Agama GUI wallet, but also in the zcash4mac GUI swing wallet. It is a simple bug, but it warrants your attention. This is a potential money cost bug, and as a Bitcoin-protocol cryptocurrency, your GUI wallet(s) may be susceptible.

watchonly-GUI bug: 'watchonly' addresses appearing as your own in GUI wallet; users could potentially send funds to the address, unaware it is not theirs or available for withdrawal.  You can import <any address> and it becomes a 'watchonly' address. The GUI will display the address as yours, add its funds to your balance, and accept deposits, but cannot be withdrawn. This could be a normal address, my address, a p2sh address, satoshi's address, etc. This can be confusing to an end-user and will lead to many headaches for the developer, as is always the case with misplaced funds.

FOUND: in Komodo Platform's Agama multiwallet (fixed) and zcash4mac GUI swing wallet (@jl777b: "newest QT wallet seems ok about watch only, but not sure of older and when it was fixed")

ex. @grewalsatinder found the bug in his zcash swing wallet:

Quote from: jl777B
"satinder used zcash4mac, ie. the zcash osx GUI, not ours... the assumption is no GUI out there properly handles watch only addresses, until proven that they do... agama also had this bug, which we found and fixed, so it seems a very common bug to have"

SOLUTION: For the 'watchonly' address or any address not yours, the value 'ismine' returns false. Any such address gets filtered out.

QUESTIONS:
  • How does your recommended GUI deal with watchonly addresses?
  • Does your GUI display watchonly addresses as different than actual addresses in the wallet?

We need to experiment a bit to see which approach gets a better response triggering the bug. People WILL lose money if they send funds to a watchonly address.

Quote from: jl777B
"the t3 addresses in the 'Own Addresses' column! and they absolutely cant be as they are p2sh addresses. it is clear proof that the bug is very real and anybody that understands a p2sh address will understand it cant be something in your wallet. it is usually a multisig address, so only if it is a 1of1 multisig (possible but very silly) can you have a p2sh address that is spendable, but the wallet wont even know it... normal addresses can also be watchonly, which makes this even worse. in that case it would appear in the list of addresses just like all the others. even if you are able to spot p2sh addresses visually, it wont be enough"

I've been tasked with spreading awareness and facilitating discussion of this bug, so please let me know if you have any questions. I'll get you some answers and we can minimize the impact. We wanted to reach out directly to the developers of the 60+ coins featured on Agama and BarterDEX as the bug may have a direct impact on you (via your own GUI wallet).

People are not worry of coin prices down. People panic when there is no news or Dev not active.

It hurts to see that Namecoin is in second hundred altcoins on coimarketcap. This coin deserves a better place for sure in top 50.

Hi Folks,

I am keen on merged mining with Antpool for namecoin. However, I am unable to find a wallet which supports Namecoin. It seems like a lot of the folks on this thread are supporting Namecoin so I wanted to see if someone can point me in the right direction. Can someone please take couple mins to explain 2 things?

1) Where can I get a Namecoin wallet without tooooo much hassle?
2) How do I enable merged mining with Antpool?

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.

1) https://namecoin.org/download/

2) You need a pool that enables merged mining. Some mine NMC and sell them automatically and gives you mili-btc. They do not give you NMC. You have to buy them.

Thank you but this one just like the others out there says "not suitable for mining". I just want to dual mine it with Antpool. Any suggestions? Thanks.

That's just a disclaimer because the wallet is in "beta". However there's another, older, wallet in the same page that is for miners, Namecoin Core Client (Stable Release), should be roughtly the same but without the name-tab.

Namecoin’s Jeremy Rand and Jonas Ostman will be at 34C3
Dec 23, 2017 • Jeremy Rand

Namecoin developers Jeremy Rand and Jonas Ostman will attend 34C3 (the 34th Chaos Communication Congress) in Leipzig, December 27-30. There’s a good chance that the 34C3 Monero Assembly will host some Namecoin talks. We’re looking forward to the congress!

34C3 Summary
Jan 3, 2018 • Jeremy Rand

As was previously announced, Jonas Ostman and I (Jeremy Rand) represented Namecoin at 34C3 in Leipzig, Germany. This was our first Congress, so we didn’t quite know what to expect, but we were pretty confident that it would be awesome. We were not disappointed. The CCC community is well-known for being friendly and welcoming to newcomers, and we greatly enjoyed talking to everyone there.

Namecoin gave 3 talks, all of which were hosted by the Monero Assembly and the Chaos West Stage. I expect 2 of those talks to have videos posted sometime later this month. Unfortunately, 1 of the talks suffered an audio issue in the recording, so it won’t have a video posted (but I will post the slides of that talk, as well as the other talks’ slides). The talks’ titles are:

Namecoin as a Decentralized Alternative to Certificate Authorities for TLS
Namecoin for Tor Onion Service Naming (And Other Darknets) (No video will be posted due to audio recording technical issues)
A Blueprint for Making Namecoin Anonymous
As usual for conferences that we attend, we engaged in a large number of conversations with other attendees. Also as usual, I won’t be publicly disclosing the content of those conversations, because I want people to be able to talk to me at conferences without worrying that off-the-cuff comments will be broadcast to the public. That said, I can say that a lot of very promising discussions happened regarding future collaboration with allied projects, and we’ll make any relevant announcements when/if such collaborations are formalized.

Huge thank you to the following groups who facilitated our participation:

The Monero Assembly
The Chaos West Assembly
Technoethical
We definitely intend to return for 35C3 in December 2018. Until then, Tuwat!
