Is namecoin dead now there is no liquidity or volume or any decent exchanges to trade on? Why will electrum wallet not connect? TIA

Electrum still working fine for me. No volume anywhere, but you might as well try to put up some sell (or buy) orders and see what happens. Southxchange is probably a good option.

Hi,thanks for your response.I am running Version 3.3.6 and have set server to automatically grab a connection and it fails.I have also manually selected each server and nothing connects.I run various electrum clients for bitcoin and numerous altcoins and they all connect without fail.The issue is solely with namecoin client.

These are a list of servers available shown below.If you have other servers you are connecting maybe you can post them here so I can attempt to add them through the executable files.TIA

Namecoin Core version nc0.18.0 (64-bit) does not work on mac either.

I don't have a mac to test, but can you perhaps still give some more details of what exactly the issue is?  Maybe we can still debug it.

Better yet, put the details in a new issue on https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core.  Thanks!

FYI, we've just tagged Namecoin Core 0.18.1: https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/releases/tag/nc0.18.1

This is a minor release, mostly incorporating upstream changes and based on Bitcoin Core 0.18.1.  There is no immediate need to update if you are running Namecoin Core 0.18.0 already.

Today is the heliacal rising of the star Sirius, and is associated with Osiris, the God of resurrection in ancient Egyptian thought, and this is the perfect day to start a novel proposal hack for a Namecoin hard fork named OSIRIS based on the principle of recycling un-renewed coins. The concept of expiration is already present in NMC but instead of wallets that expire, are domain names. The basic idea of OSIRIS is that un-renewed or forever lost coins due to lost private keys are recycled back into the ecosystem, rewarding them to miners at their expiration date. This idea has matured over many years and there is a post in the project direction NMC forum describing this as well. Does anyone feel betrayed by the lack of general interest and fresh ideas around this coin and is concerned that their investment will disappear soon as it seems to sink ever more into the mud as time passes? Does any one want to join forces and fabricate a hardfork that would make their NMC investment float and survive in the challenging waves of the present sea of crypto novelty?https://i.ibb.co/zmb3dMh/osiris.png

You do know that when Osiris was cut into 14 pieces - with Isis and her sister searching and reclaiming the parts - that only 13 were recovered, right?
Osiris never got his dick back. I don't know about anyone else but I am not interested in any project where there is a chance I can have my manhood eaten by an oxyrhynchus fish.

Although there are some who are willing to take such risks... https://diegorod.github.io/WillMcAfeeEatHisOwnDick/

Yes, but her sister Isis represented by the star Sirius gave him an erect phallus made of solid gold and became pregnant by it, hence the birth of Horus, i.e. The Sun.
I took a photo of that moment in the Osireion, Isis having transformed into a falcon https://i.ibb.co/sFQj9cY/osireon2.jpg

The developers work for free.It would be a good idea if people could donate directly from their wallet through some agreed tax or interest on holdings.Why should anyone work for free?

Crowdfunding the hard fork is a good idea, but keep in mind that the monetary reward for developers would be given as an equal amount of their NMC balance in OSIRIS. However you did bring an interesting point regarding the wallet, because since both NMC and BTC use SHA-256, it would be technically possible for the OSIRIS wallet to have an order book that atomic swaps between BTC and NMC.

How interesting and ironic that a coin that sells itself of being against speech censorship and centralized authority, the main developer "biolizard" censors the coin's forum and with very ungracious language just by speaking your mind and ideas, showing the weak moral foundations behind this coin and the ungratefulness towards the investors aka "bagholders".

Ah in all fairness you can only expect the developers to be abrasive or dismissive with posters advocating forking off in some other direction or proposing an alternative project ..if that's the post you are referring to.I wouldn't take offence after considering both sides of the discussion.

That is true in some respect, but like Buckminster Fuller said, instead of fighting forces, use them.
It was not a poster, the image is the logo but it came out really big.
Im really worried about this coin's future, I have invested almost all the money I had in it and its value has decreased ten fold, now it has near-zero liquidity, with 1 btc you could probably get the price down to a few cents. The dev seems to release a .0001 version wallet upgrade very 6 months, with no interesting features added, it feels like jacking off to me. That's why I'm proposing a fork with more room for improvement and foresight.
In another note, if the fork would duplicate your NMC balance, why would a dev be against it?, if it not because he already dumped all his coins.

Just about this bit:  The main blockchain parts of Namecoin are mostly in place, so what new features do you expect?  The releases are based off corresponding Bitcoin Core releases plus added features (e.g. in the last year we added proper support for encodings of names/values, improved the RPC interface in general, and just recently allowed sending multiple name_updates in one block).  So if you think the project is dead because no "interesting features" are added, do you also think Bitcoin Core is dead?

(I'm not talking about applications built on top of Namecoin here, like .bit.  There is also lots of progress with those, with others apart from me working on it.)
