Sorry for generating spam on your thread. If you want me to delete it, please let me know.

Darkcoin now has around 900 decentralized nodes running its anonymity mixing system. After the coming update to release what is expected to be the last release candidate before open sourcing the anonymity aspect of the project, and the independent audit of the anonymity + overall code, the devs are considering developing an alternative to Tor using the nodes already up and the ones that are expected to join the new network.

Someone has suggested using namecoin for one of the possible aspects of the network:


About .drk and .mn registrations, why not integrating namecoins .bit domains into this coming darknet?
.bit domains have been around quite some time now, and it would be wise to cooperate between existing coins instead of trying to do everything yourself.

The problem with .bit domains has always been how do you make .bit domains visible in an ordinary browser?

For .bit domains there have appeared a few plugins:

www.meowbit.com
www.freespeechme.org

Still, everybody who wants to view .bit domains has to install a plugin, and that is a big hurdle.
If darktor/darknet were able to integrate .bit domains, that would be fantastic for both namecoin and darkcoin.

I suspect they just need to reach out to the DRK devs and community to see if something could be worked on jointly, or if DRK can provide a route on to the eventual network.

Traffic generates costs, as long as there is an incentive for MN I can't see why the DRK devs (I can't speak for them) would not take a look.

I haven't raised this with the DRK devs, so it may be a little premature to raise it here....but just wondering what the feedback might be on the possible fit.

Thanks.
It should be relatively easy to add support for your darknet in Namecoin and peripheral software (e.g. FreeSpeechMe) if you can provide a socket similar to Tor. I would support it and I think most Namecoin supporters, too.

Note that it should probably go into the same Namespace as ".bit" to prevent squatting of yet another namespace and impersonating of .bit domains.

Of course people could also include their Darkcoin (stealth?) addresses into their Namecoin IDs.

Just a notice that namecoin-qt v0.3.76rc1, which by virtue of continued support and development is the recommended client to emerge from a confusing year or two, is released as v0.3.76.

v0.3.76rc1

    Set default fee per kb to 0.005NMC (phelix)
    Several optimizations to improve handling of large/many network transactions (Domob)
    Only accept finished transactions (phelix)
    Relay transaction size limited to 20kb (consensus/phelix)
    Increased network relay fee MIN_RELAY_TX_FEE to 100000 (RyanC/Indolering/phelix)
    More restrictive filtering of transactions
    Update to OpenSSL1.0.1i (phelix)
    Better drive performance on disk based systems through less fragmentation (Domob)
    "Renew" GUI Button (Domob)
    contrib/easywinbuilder: Qt5/MinGW4.8.2/cleanup (phelix)
    Qt5 compatibility (Canercandan/phelix)
    New command line / .conf file option: -walletpath=customwalletfilename.dat (digital-dreamer)
    "Pay To" in the Qt can be used to send coins also to a name, like "sendtoname" (Domob)
    New RPC block info: height, confirmations, chainwork, nextblockhash. Change: No previousblockhash for block 0 (RyanC)
    The RPC interface now returns an error while initialising, instead of not accepting connections at all (Domob)

v0.3.75

    Add difficulty to RPC block output JSON (Domob)
    Bitcoin port: skip signature verification on blocks before last checkpoint (phelix)
    New checkpoint at 182000
    Update to OpenSSL1.0.1h (security fix for SSL http RPC)
    Czech localization (digital-dreamer)
    Windows installer script for Innsetup (phelix)
    Enforce value length of 520 characters in RPC and Qt (Domob)
    New command line argument -dbstats runs a DB file storage statistics analysis and prints it to the debug log. (Domob)
    Atomic handling of TxDB/NameDB operations, DB code cleanup and optimization. (Domob)
    Even smaller blkindex.dat. Not backward compatible. It will take a while for the rewrite on the first start. (Domob)

Further announcement and binaries: https://forum.namecoin.info/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1975

Relay transaction size and other transaction handling changes in this release are fixes for the under-reported problem that nearly stalled merge-mining on the Namecoin network:

An unknown party (The Aggregator) began consolidating a massive volume (50,000-100,000K) of unspent outputs into a single address. However, namecoind has extreme difficulty selecting outputs to spend in a wallet containing tens of thousands of unspent outputs. The Aggregator appears to have attempted to address this by writing a script which manually built transactions spending 50 or 100 of those unspent outputs to a new address.

The problem is that each of these transactions were 17-30 KB and rather than the standard transaction fee of 0.005NMC per KB (rounded up), a flat fee of 0.005NMC was used. Namecoin, like Bitcoin actually has two fee values, MIN_TX_FEE (used by miners) and MIN_RELAY_TX_FEE (used by all other full nodes). This enables MIN_TX_FEE to be lowered down to MIN_RELAY_TX_FEE without nodes who haven’t yet upgraded refusing to forward transactions with the new lower fee. On Bitcoin, the ratio between MIN_TX_FEE and MIN_RELAY_TX_FEE is 5:1, but due to an oversight it was 50:1 in Namecoin. The result was that The Aggregator’s transactions had a large enough fee to be forwarded throughout the network, but were considered “insufficient fee/free” transactions by miners. Since there is very limited space in blocks for such transactions, they just kept building up in the miners’ memory pools. The volume of transactions soon began causing the merge-mining software run by pools to time-out trying to get work.

so, is this still the official ANN thread of namecoin here on bitcointalk?

We should have more "action" here, and not only on the namecoin-forum  Smiley

Namecoin wallpaper and stl. file for 3D printing now available for download
on http://www.bitpla.net/2014/07/namecoin-nmc.html

Now you can make your own physical Namecoin



Very interesting. Doesn't seem all that useful though.

I agree. Have you seen the cost of 3D printers? Not in the pocket of an ordinary Joe. But interesting that these things can be done.

Also btc-e volume is quite high in general these days because of the ruble trouble.

Anyway it's great the halving finally comes.

Sounds like maybe something positive for this lonely altcoin.  Someone referred to it as the magic-bean of altcoins which gave me a chuckle. A cryptocoin for DNS sounded good, but never went anywhere.  Is anyone doing anything with them? Would be interested to hear about some use cases for them...

Excellent.
Now we wait another 4 years (I believe) until the next halving, right?

End of 2018: 12.5 NMC

Actually it was only 3.5 years or so because of the mostly increasing difficulty.

Are .bit going to exist on their own, or are they always going to be linked to ICANN?
