I don't think that's an "idea"; that's just a statement that there is no web wallet service exclusively for Namecoin. You can send your Namecoins to several different places for holding, such as exchanges, if you feel the need to trust anonymous Internet entities with your money.

Q. What is MeowBit?
A. MeowBit is Free Software for Windows that allows you to effortlessly view Dot-Bit websites. It works on your entire system: ALL browsers, plus e-mail, instant messenger, FTP, everything on your computer. MeowBit is TRUSTLESS, i.e., you don’t have to trust a third party to ensure you are going to the desired site. That’s a good thing...

I didn't know that such a thing even existed. Thank you for linking!

It appears to me that a lot of valuable information about namecoin is scattered over multiple sites. That could be improved.


ya.ya.yo!

The reference, was more to the lack of a glossy central point, for those interested. Currently anyone wishing to register a .bit name has to jump through alot of very technical hoops with namecoin.qt.  Further resources are few and far between.

 A sexy looking blockexplorer with some method of tracking nameownership/expiry date and network stats would be a good hub for the sort of people this project needs to attract. The average blog writer or website owner who wants an uncensored domain, and cares little of how this is achieved. How many different domains are blocked under certain jurisdictions around the world? My point, is it should be easy to register, store, browse and resolve namecoin.

For that to happen these services need to be built.

That's the exact raison d'être for my website dotbit.me - to make the whole process as easy as possible.

I want a cool .bit domain name but they are all taken. I have never actually seen any popular website with a .bit domain so there must be a bunch of cyber squatters sitting on all the cool domains. This is horrible for the future of this coin.

Is it possible for namecoin to have many different tlds? Like just random ones. .ny .on .th .ok?

These cybersquatters are screwing up the coin since no one can make a popular .bit website which would in turn promote namecoin.

I make the best websites but have no interest in namecoin anymore since all the cool names are being held by some greedy pigs.

Which name are you interested in?  You can try looking it up in the blockchain, some squatters put contact info like an email or Bitmessage address there.  I can well imagine that most squatters are ultimately interested in the success of Namecoin and will support you if you honestly want to set up a website at some of their names (and will sell you the name relatively cheaply or even give for free).

I wasn't aware .bit has a squatter problem, that is a shame.
Namecoin has been one of my 3 favorite coins for a long time, and that will not change soon. I strongly believe NMC/BTC will be higher than LTC/BTC within a few years, since the supply is much lower and NMC has unique value.

Nice to see that there is still progress in development, because namecoin has a lot of potential. The reworked website is also an improvement.

The id-namespace is a great addition, which might even see widespread use earlier than  .bit.

Keep up the good work!

Hey /r/bitcoin, would you be interested in crowdfunding the rights to .bit from ICANN ($185k + maybe another $100k to become accredited), then set their master servers to read off of the namecoin block chain? Also, come get some SOUL colored coins - post your coinprism address in the comments.

I might get around building something like onename.io as opensource, because I need a blockchain based auth system for people to use. Systems like these could really push namecoin's use. Onename.io claiming that they are "decentral" while doing this as closed source is kinda pointless. But the webinterface I think shows how the future might look like. Building the Twitter/Github/.. API's takes time though. But in these case reliance on a Trusted third party is okay. For ".bit" it's not, because the request takes place continuously.

To get around the squatting, one will need a good auction system, which is hard to do. Actually for the Internet this is broken, too. Transfering from one registrar to another is often impossible, and all these registrars do is take a lot of money for administering a database entry (+censorship for free!). There is a protocol (RFC3731) which in theory handles domain transfers, but nobody implements it. Actually even the guys who've written the protocol don't implement it. If anyone is interested in all of this please let me know.

The squatting isn't as bad as its made out to be, at least for some of the earlier name holders. Many where reserved early to prevent squatters and I've heard of a fair number of those being transferred for free (bitcoin related company names mostly). I picked one applicable to me at a very reasonable price and could easily have haggled lower, a namecoin developer was holding it so it was going towards namecoin development.

I fully agree here.  While I'm not one of the "early squatters", I hold some names and will gladly give them for free (together with free help in configuration) to anyone who wants to set up a real website in earnest.  I've already seen "statistics" like "oh look, what a mess, 99% of .bit domains are only squatted and not resolving to a website!" a lot, and think that this is mostly due not to squatting being such a bad problem, but because there simply isn't yet enough demand to build .bit websites.  I'm sure that, when .bit gets more popular and more people can actually resolve it, this fraction will improve by a lot.
