Today Namecoin celebrates its 10th anniversary! On Sunday, April 17, 2011 at 00:26:41 (GMT/UTC), the Genesis block (block 0) was generated - and the very first fork of Bitcoin and thus the world's first alternative cryptocurrency was born! Namecoin, along with Bitcoin, was and is primarily intended as an alternative Domain Name System (DNS) for websites, with the goal of becoming independent of regular ICANN domains with Top Level Domains (TLD) such as .com, .net or .org.

As a key/value store, Namecoin allows any record on the blockchain such as identities and whatever data up to a size of 255 bytes for the key (255 ASCII characters such as numbers and letters, i.e. the name of the record like a domain name) and additional 520 bytes for the value (520 ASCII characters, e.g. the DNS configuration of a domain). So in total a key/value pair can contain 775 bytes or 775 ASCII characters (see record with TxID b5a1d922cb66299ced3856b8b112201f798b81dee31a4483e935f43866bb5554 as an example).

Today, Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 00:30:02 (GMT/UTC) we mined block 554960. So including the Genesis block, we got 554,961 confirmations of block 0. During these 10 years, a total of 5,584,201 TxIDs (transactions) were written to the blockchain, including the so-called Coinbase transactions for newly mined blocks that credit the miner's wallet with the reward. Subtracting the Coinbase transactions, 5,029,240 TxIDs were issued, so 5 million transactions for transferring coins and creating and updating names. On average, these are 10 TxIDs per block including the Coinbase transactions (or 9 TxIDs per block excluding the Coinbase transactions) and 152 blocks per day over the last 10 years.





happy birthday !

The ironic thing is if namecoin was only a regular shitcoin instead of a utility coin it would probably be priced at about 1000 dollars with muppets knocking each other over to get in to "invest" while elon tweets shit about it being the next big thang. Crypto market is the scammiest most brain drained swamp on the face of this god forsaken earth and deserves to crash and burn without any mercy shown to it.

This would mean more to me if you weren't currently attacking FreeBitcoins.com with some fake Alexa search results.

"freebitcoins.com steven drugs
freebitcoins.com steven fraud
freebitcoins.com arkansas illegal exchange
freebitcoins.com illegal exchange"

The community want to thank for pointing out the relevant thread Request for permanent ban of user BayAreaCoins. That such behavior get's public attention was clear, but I have indeed better things to do than generating search queries.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

You're a scammer & extortionist as well!  You should get a life.  [(TradeRunner contact my countries police for legal firearm sale, attacking our search ranking and posting on social media.... all in hopes of you earning "something" (which is NEVER going to happen!)]

You attack anyone you think might be able to pay you to shut you up.  There is absolutely no reason, beyond the hopes of profit, that you attempted to attack me.
I might post a screenshot here where this troll asked what he would have to pay. But again, the community would like to thank him for the impressive confirmation of his inability to even notice what he might have done wrong. You'd have to be crazy to think I'd like to get a single penny from a military weapons dealer! But indeed, that Botcointalk get's abused for such deals under the acceptance of the forum admin is a good reason to stay away from here!

The community...

How big is your community?

I expect it's about this big:



is a good reason to stay away from here!

Perfect, time to go to your next sockpuppet account and leave me alone next time.  Kiss

London Trust Media = Private Internet Access?

I remember when they sponsored these forums many moons ago.

you guys should take your grudges everywhere else instead of staining an epic thread.

could everyone focus for a second on the topic at hand, namely, Namecoin

and discuss how the chinese are even copying the .bit domain extension when they launched their own token naming service... ---> https://twitter.com/RBCHI/status/1402230670915604486

shouldn't we, when they finish, just copy their features or something.?

NMC should have at least pretty interfaces for normal people to be able to use it...

The notification about the new IRC channel was not caused by any Namecoin-related internal conflict. Anyway, regarding our internal conflicts I tried to find a solution and even offered in a chat with the contributor yanmaani to bury the hatchet with "Jeremy Rand" aka biolizard89 for the case of his public excuse for his repeated misconduct - with the result that he fully sided with J.R. and even adopted his manner 1:1. As a result, I finally banned yanmaani from the IRC channel. The question of a fork came up again in one of our Telegram groups. By the way, the reason for this conflict is also the same reason why the Namecoin project is considered dead from the outside.

About the TLD .bit we had it earlier. There wouldn't be a problem registering the .bit TDL even in the regular ICANN namespace. It's just a question how the browser plugins etc are handling the DNS resolution. This Chinese project can take and copy which pseudo TLD ever, it won't affect Namecoin and it's usability in any way. That Namecoin is not really user friendly is well known and I regularly even get requests on Telegram how to get the Core node connected as no peers are found for days. Only after manually adding several peers the synchronization starts. But in the end, Namecoin is indeed epic and the most established blockchain DNS service, secured over the Bitcoin network, see e.g. the notification 🎊 10 years Namecoin 🎉 for details.

As we have uncovered, the Namecoin contributors on GitHub, namely and most notably Daniel Kraft, Jeremy Rand, and the user under the pseudonym yanmaani, received an airdrop of 10.2 million HNS in February 2020, according to Handshake's whitepaper. We need to clarify here that most of the listed contributors, and thus the members with the most contributions such as laanwj, MarcoFalke and sipa, have never contributed a single line of code directly to Namecoin. For example, since the Namecoin Core wallet is forked and regularly imported from the Bitcoin Core repository, the original contributions to the Bitcoin Core wallet are automatically shown in the Namecoin fork as well, without these contributors even knowing it. The members active exclusively on the Namecoin repository can be found e.g. in the open issues.

The huge airdrop for the Namecoin contributors was sent to the Handshake multisig address hs1qme9hk473uwkgk8293pyjea2dysrrweedk3jfcdnmzey432ctl06q4nk370. This airdrop was intended as a personal donation to active and previous Namecoin contributors and has been spent on February 20, 2020 at block 2872, worth approximately $1 million USD at the time of the airdrop. In order to obtain this airdrop, the Namecoin contributors had to apply for the pseudo TLD (top level domain) .bit within the Handshake network with the DNSSEC proof of ownership of the subdomain bit.namecoin.org. The claim was then made with the TxID 4cf79769efba09e0eb1ed446f8d8200579fd67967eb9252b834475eb5c2878a9, which was symbolically rewarded with 503 HNS (in addition to the airdrop of 10.2 million HNS).

Referring to the news section on namecoin.org (see also the current Wayback archive), this airdrop has never been publicly declared by the Namecoin contributors, nor was it ever declared how the airdrop was split and who received which amount. For further details, see the discussion in the Handshake Telegram group. By the way, recently we had a very nice discussion with J.R. & Co....  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Another trustworthy exchange for Namecoin is https://freiexchange.com. I use it for years without issues. The only drawback is no disposable deposit adresses.
