Namecoin has many useful functions, therefore it is impossible to consider it simply as an ordinary coin. It is an innovation that will show itself to the world. I read information about the Safinus project as an investment platform. I also see a lot of revolutionary innovations there

Hi,

I was wondering, when the next Namecoin halving happens. I found no corresponding clock, so I wrote a simple bash script for computing the date (see below). Is the middle or end of October correct?

Moreover, I was also wondering, why Namecoin shows such a low price (especially compared to newer coins)? In the bubble of 2017, Litecoin for instance, reached new ATHs. Reasons why I think that Namecoin is undervalued:
  • Namecoin is even a little bit older than Litecoin;
  • Namecoin has only a supply of 21m coins;
  • Namecoin is as secure as Bitcoin;
  • The next halving is in around six month;
  • With a little bit of time and money, it seems not hard to purchase over 10k NMC;
  • And last but not least, in contrast to many newer and higher priced coins, Namecoin HAS an instrinsic value as decentral domain name system.

So why is Namecoin forgotten by the community? What is your opinion?

My opinion: Imho should 1 NMC cost at least as much as 1 LTC. Thus, Namecoin can increase in value by the factor of 50. But even a factor of 10 would be fair.

The following script works also for other coins:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

# bc-binary
bc_exec=bc;

current_block=$1;
halving_block=$2;
blockinterval=$3;

remaining_blocks=$(echo "obase=10;ibase=10;scale=10;$halving_block-$current_block" | $bc_exec);
duration=$(echo "obase=10;ibase=10;scale=10;$remaining_blocks*$blockinterval*60" | $bc_exec);

current_epoch=$(date +%s);
halving_epoch=$(echo "obase=10;ibase=10;scale=10;$current_epoch+$duration" | $bc_exec);

halving_date=$(date -d @$halving_epoch);

echo "current block   : $current_block";
echo "remaining blocks: $remaining_blocks";
echo "halving date    : $halving_date";

Save the script as halving.sh. The bc binary should be installed on your system, which is included in the most Linux-systems by default. Change the permissions of the script:

Code:
chmod 700 halving.sh

Compute the date:

Code:
./halving.sh 390391 420000 10
current block   : 390391
remaining blocks: 29609
halving date    : Sun Oct 14 00:09:04 CEST 2018

Can anyone, who owns a working account at

https://forum.namecoin.org/

post a message there or contact an admin directly, that the namecoin-forum is totally useless for new members?

I created several accounts at forum.namecoin.org in the last few days and it is NOT possible to reply to messages, it is NOT possible to create new threads and it is NOT possible to send PMs!

Moreover, there exists a list of the forum members (Quick links -> Members), which can be ordered with respect to the date a person joined the forum. It seems that everyone, who joined after 2017-11-30, is not able to post messages.

With such a non-working/dysfunctional/broken namecoin-forum, it is not surprising, that the namecoin community seems dead.

The solution:

Click on your username on the right top of forum.namecoin.org, below the search field as follows:

Username -> User Control Panel -> Usergroups -> Self confirmed users -> Submit

I registered at many fora, and no registration was so unintuitive. I can only recommend, that the admins of forum.namecoin.org change this as quickly as possible.

If you think that Namecoin is a valuable project, then use some of the money you don't need and buy some Namecoin. I think, the price is so low, because bitcoin miners get Namecoins for free via merged mining. They sell it immediately since they bought mining hardware for Bitcoin and not for Namecoin. However, since Namecoins cost virtually nothing in the moment, it should be quite easy to dry-out the markets by buying relatively big amounts of Namecoins. Provided, there is more than one person buying Namecoins.

There are only 21m Namecoins and it is easy to buy 1000 Namecoins. With 1000 Bitcoins, a person is already considered to be very rich. Hence, 1000 persons buying 1000 Namecoins reduces the available supply by at least 1/21.

Additionally, the next Namecoin reward halving is around the 14th of October 2018. Thus, the supply will be reduced further this year.

Taken together, buying Namecoins plus the reward halving might show a visible effect on the price this year.

I bought around 3500NMC last year when it was sub $1. I sold them on the bull market as I needed money. Now I'm re-buying (1500nmc at the moment) and looking to reach 5000-6000NMC.

I think the probability of namecoin going into a bull market is weak. Especially if you consider the state of despair on the crypto market. However, the upside is laughable.

nmc could go to 100$+ prices easily if some whales mass market it. most people are unaware that nmc will lose lots of its supply once people starts to register domains as they burn the registration fee (0.01nmc currently). That with the people who already lost their coins due to inattention and negligence.

I had followed Namecoin a bit in 2013 and 2014, and also had bought some - I even registered some domains. Then it seemed that other coins had implemented similar "naming" features (for example, NXT and Emercoin) and my interest dwindled a bit.

However, the naming/DNS solutions of other coins seem to be used even less than Namecoin's. And a big advantage is that it's officially supported by ZeroNet (one of the few really working "decentralized internet" projects) and OpenNIC. So I think that in "anarchist"/crypto-libertarian circles Namecoin is still used and valued.

I have, honestly, no idea where Namecoin is heading, but it could be an opportunity, as - as trantute2 already wrote - it's one of the coins that provide something unique, and it was the first of its kind. (If I remember right, it was even the first altcoin!)

It's a shame that Namecoin is so little used!

I think the practical value of Namecoin is not really promoted: freedom. I would like to use and browse bit-domains. However, it is quite complex to configure a browser correspondingly. There exist at least one browser addon, but as far as I remember, this is not working in my current browser.

Because of that, there should be an addon for all important browsers, which is maintained continously by the community.

If I am wrong, please correct me.

PeerName works for me on Chromium. There seem to be more extensions for Chrome/Chromium (dot-bit-proxy, Dotbitme web surfer and Blockchain DNS, I didn't test them), but I didn't find a working Firefox extension. I also didn't find an Android app, and that should be "standard" in these times for cryptocurrency communities and applications. I don't know what's the situation on Edge or Safari.

So I think you are right with your criticism. If Namecoin wants to be successful, it must be as user-friendly as possible, otherwise people will simply stick with the good ol' centralized DNS.

Namecoin also has an incredible history in the crypto space. I hope it can go back up again as it is one of the oldest coins out there!

What about a corresponding project:

Development of some trustworthy browser-app for all major browsers

It should not be too hard to code this. Especially since there already exist code snippets one can use. However, I am not very experienced in app-development even though I think this is not hard to learn. Nevertheless, I would like to try my luck. But I want the community to be involved. That is, if you know about some existing and working broswer-app being open source, please post this here. d5000 already mentioned PeerName, but I am not sure if this project is open source.

Moreover, it would be nice if other people could join since my time is limited and I do not know when I can start such a project and when/if there will be some result.

How can we kick this project back up?

There has been a current coin ECC that started back up a similar project with their ANS feature that I was really taking a liking. I want to help.
