So if you think the project is dead because no "interesting features" are added, do you also think Bitcoin Core is dead?

The NMC project has to compete for a share of the attention BTC gets, and because NMC is much less known, it has to try harder and provide much more novelty than just basic wallet maintenance. There has not been real .bit uses so far, for example the btc-e exchange which got their domain seized didn't use .bit for their new wex reincarnation and instead used .nz, I'm sure they knew about this technology because NMC was one of their few trading pairs.

Seeing how .bit domains has not got the attention or widespread practical use, and how exchanges have been dumping NMC continuously for lack of substantial volume, I feel is time to take action and reinterpret what is already there. There is great potential and a hard fork will provide a space to experiment it, as I previously commented, viagra was originally conceived as a heart pressure medicine originally called sildenafil, but patients noted an interesting side effect. And instead of fighting that, the creators used it to their advantage and now viagra is known for giving boners, and not for the original intended purpose.

I'm aware about your talent and the things you can do, and i think you are the right person to lead this new project. Creating a hardfork would not compete with NMC in any way, and would provide a unique solution and concept of recycling unclaimed balances, which no coin has done so far. The basic idea is that balances get recycled back every sidereal year,  at the heliacal rising of the star Sirius, which was associated with the annual flooding of the ancient river Nile. The time to renew these balances is 70 days before this date, corresponding with the 70 days Sirius is invisible to the naked eye, and the 70 days it took for mummification in ancient Egypt to prepare the dead for the after life.

Ok - but if you are interested in .bit specifically, then that is not about Namecoin Core itself (but applications built on top of it).  So wallet releases for Namecoin Core are not relevant here, neither are any plans for hard forks.

We already have good infrastructure for .bit lookups, thanks mainly to Jeremy's work on Electrum-NMC (for light lookups) and ncdns.  So the issue here is not technical development (or lack thereof), but convincing people that they should go ahead and try using .bit.  If you think you can help there, that would be awesome.

Yes, I'm aware of your idea.  And in fact, I don't think anyone in Namecoin actually opposes it.  So feel free to go ahead and do it, or pay a developer to do it for you.  The main point that Jeremy raised on the Namecoin forum was that Namecoin as a project has no interest in implementing your idea (because we personally don't think it is very useful, and would rather spend our time on improving Namecoin itself).

The point is that nobody uses Namecoin or the .bit technology and that the coin is dying on the exchanges for lack of liquidity, which also poses a vulnerability for the security of the network as a whole. It feels like a nerd project that looks awesome in the laboratory but has no real world applications, I actually came in contact with the chief developers at brave browser a year ago and suggested to implement the working of .bit address by default, the director said it was going to looked into it but did not hear from them again. It really seems like nobody cares about it.

In 2014-2015 I tried fiddling around with setting up a .bit domain using NMC, however the Mozilla browser plugin/extension was just too finnicky and I could never get it to work right. It was a great idea for a coin but at the end of the day it is still subject to a central point of failure, which is the fact that the .bit extension isn't being updated as fast as the web browsers are.

if we see a significant development is certainly quite suprising, behind the succes always have obstacles. lets see next progress whether they are able to maintain a positive trend, a great hope for the team

Except that ENS is a lot more centralised than Namecoin.

This...

Namecoin Core 0.18.0 has been released on the Downloads page. This release succesfully softforked at block height 475,000 on mainnet. Contained in the softfork are:

    P2SH
    CSV
    SegWit

That are now activated.

Miners, exchanges, registrars, explorers, ElectrumX servers, and all other service providers should upgrade as soon as possible.

We've just tagged Namecoin Core 0.19.0 in the Github repository (https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-co ... g/nc0.19.0). This is a new major release of Namecoin Core, mostly incorporating the upstream changes that Bitcoin Core 0.19.0 brought. It also includes a refactor of the mempool handling logic for names, which will in the future allow sending multiple pending name_updates for a single name. (While not typically useful for Namecoin, there was no good reason to disallow this; it can be useful in emergencies or when a messed-up name_update has been issued accidentally to fix the situation more quickly.)

Love the new wallet. Seed phrases are a great implementation!
ah.... Is there no longer an active online explorer?

please forgive the noob question, but in this and cryptocoin projects in general:
why are the wallet and explorer separate things? is it too difficult to incorporate an explorer into the client?
In the case of NMC, I would really like to do a search and find all the results, instead of simply checking to see if a namespace is available.
thnx

my specialization is cryptoart and my preffered platform is CounerParty
Feel free to give feedback on the Treatise I wrote. This Gallery includes multiple works made by, with or for me.

A block explorer is something quite different at least in terms of UI than a wallet, that's presumably the reason.  They also use some indices (e.g. of all data by address), which are not needed for ordinary operation and would thus increase the storage and computing cost of a full node if included by default.  Also most block explorers run on a website, so that people can use them without a full node, which can be useful.

Note that Namecoin Core does allow you to retrieve essentially all the data a block explorer has through its RPC interface, as well as get a list of all registered names (using name_scan).  There is just not a UI for it.

Does the project still works? And can we still get a .bit domain name?
