True though that the technology also needs to advance as it also does for other coins with active development. Standing the test of time is one thing, active development the other.
There is active development.  I've already mentioned the ConsensusJ light client.

The full client, namecoin-core follows Bitcoin development closely, the last update was 7 days ago.

The problem, for me, is still usability. It is still too difficult for the "general public" to use Namecoin. The Blockchain DNS project (browser extensions) I mentioned earlier is a big step forward as it works on two of the most popular browsers and works out-of-the-box. I think porting the Blockchain DNS extension to the remaining browsers (Safari and Edge/IE) and with a stable light client (ConsensusJ or Electrum) Namecoin can be a success.

The main reason namecoin is not heavily traded is because traders don't have a lite client to store their coins off exchanges.Same goes for regular Joe who has no interest in bit/dns and only wants a solid coin to use to buy his trash on the internet wherever a shop accepts namecoin.It all boils down to economics and the whole namecoin economy is wrong by only appealing to a niche audience.We are not all geeks but have a lot of respect for the developers of this legacy coin and many want to trade and use it for non geek stuff too.

Firstly, there are so many scam coins (check coinmarketcap), which have a higher market cap than Namecoin. Those projects are traded for speculative reasons, the additional benefit is limited, especially compared to Namecoin. You can't even buy something with those coins. Namecoin was once traded on kraken. They removed it. I do not know why.

Secondly, go back a few pages. There, we discussed ways to make Namecoin and the corresponding DNS more prominent. Even though our result is still limited. But I hope this will change in future.

Thirdly, I think, that there is relatively much development under way. E.g. I am looking forward to Namecoin version 0.15.99, which seems to be still in beta state (https://namecoin.org/2018/02/01/namecoin-core-0-15-99-name-tab-beta1.html).

Fourthly, the next Namecoin halving is scheduled for end of October.

Thus, it is time for this coin to shine again (imho)!

Signature verification (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6017.msg36620285#msg36620285)

I provided the wrong PGP-Key: D9D72D3A

The correct PGP-Key is: F8F7BF85

The verification worked in my case, because I had the correct key already imported!

Always check twice, what is posted in the internet!!!

Namecoin is one of the few tokens I have added to my portfolio for a long time. Presently ready to hold it for a long time.

Has anyone else got this working? There is no namecoind target in the makefile, so i built bitcoind.  My daemon is currently sitting at 0 blocks and doesn't recognize calls such as name_list and name_scan.

Namecoin is now ready for cross-chain dapps with the Blocknet Protocol!




Now that namecoin is compatible with the Blocknet Protocol, it can be used in cross-blockchain dapps and traded on beta Block DX!

You can read more about Blocknet, the Blocknet Protocol, and Block DX here:

https://blocknet.co

https://sites.google.com/view/blocknet/directory

To get started with trading on Block DX, follow this setup guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ciwLFSXwv6CXd3QEvVW88lHXo9CSIlweYOoSbDHkies/preview

The setup is in the process of being automated/abstracted so it's much easier and streamlined to use for beginners. In addition to that, in July we are planning to release SPV support which will allow for the creation of litewallets so whole blockchains will not need to be downloaded.

What exactly have you built?  There should indeed be a namecoind.  If you got bitcoind, then perhaps you checked out the wrong branch?  We do keep "bitcoin" and "auxpow" branches in our repo for the purpose of tracking upstream development.  You want the "master" branch.

The only reason I never bought namecoin is because there is no electrum.Not too many peeps want to spend all day downloading a whole blockchain and less want to leave coins sitting on an exchange either.

I'm trying to build contacts with Namecoin miners.  I may have some questions about mining-related features from their point of view in future development (as I'm not a miner myself), and also for planning of potential future forks.

If you are mining Namecoin and are willing to get in touch, please reply or send me a PM with contact information.

WARNING! I DID NOT TEST FURTHER FUNCTIONALITIES OF THE SOFTWARE!
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

Hello everybody,

there is a Namecoin electrum wallet, which you can download here:

https://namecoin.org/download/betas/

This source is more suited, since the Namecoin-developers provide signed hashsums for the binaries and tar.gz-files. For verifiying the files, see:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6017.msg36620285#msg36620285

For instance, download the Linux version via (Edit: the instructions are working with ubuntu 16.04 LTS)

Code:
wget https://www.namecoin.org/files/electrum-nmc/electrum-nmc-3.1.3-beta1/electrum-nmc-3.1.3-beta1.tar.gz

Unzip the file via

Code:
tar -xzvf electrum-nmc-3.1.3-beta1.tar.gz

And enter the resulting directory

Code:
cd electrum-nmc

Check the README.rst file firstly. I am not sure, what really is needed but the following seems necessary for a working installation

Code:
sudo apt-get install python3-pip
sudo apt-get install python3-pyqt5
sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools
sudo apt-get install pyqt5-dev-tools
sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler
sudo apt-get install python-requests gettext
sudo apt-get install libudev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev

Edit: I added the last line, which is necessary for building electrum.

I am also not sure whether the above covers all necessary libraries. If not please complete the missing by yourself and post it here (google is your friend). Then do

Code:
pip3 install .[full]
pyrcc5 icons.qrc -o gui/qt/icons_rc.py
protoc --proto_path=lib/ --python_out=lib/ lib/paymentrequest.proto
./contrib/make_locale


Now try to start electrum-nmc

Code:
./electrum-nmc

If the wallet works: Fine!

Edit: Repeating the instructions as given here, it worked. However, if you messed up your system somehow, see below.

I still got the following error message

Code:
cannot import name 'icons_rc'
Error: Could not find icons file.
Please run 'pyrcc5 icons.qrc -o gui/qt/icons_rc.py', and reinstall Electrum

And I was not able to get rid of it, even though the icons-file is generated where it should be. To "solve" this issue open gui/qt/__init__.py

Code:
nano gui/qt/__init__.py

Change

Code:
try:
    from . import icons_rc
except Exception as e:
    print(e)
    print("Error: Could not find icons file.")
    print("Please run 'pyrcc5 icons.qrc -o gui/qt/icons_rc.py', and reinstall Electrum")
    sys.exit(1)

to

Code:
#try:
#    from . import icons_rc
#except Exception as e:
#    print(e)
#    print("Error: Could not find icons file.")
#    print("Please run 'pyrcc5 icons.qrc -o gui/qt/icons_rc.py', and reinstall Electrum")
#    sys.exit(1)

Again run

Code:
pip3 install .[full]

And try again

Code:
./electrum-nmc

The wallet should start now. Might be, that the icons are missing now.

You can also use your Trezor hardware wallet with electrum-nmc (see my post above https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6017.msg40238305#msg40238305)!

Clearly, your Trezor hardware wallet should work with Trezor's web interface. If not, you might need to do the following:

https://doc.satoshilabs.com/trezor-user/settingupchromeonlinux.html

Firstly, you must install python-trezor (https://github.com/trezor/python-trezor)

Code:
pip3 install --upgrade setuptools
pip3 install trezor

This installs the corresponding files to

Code:
/home/<user>/.local/lib/python3.5/site-packages/trezorlib

Unfortunately, this is not enough in the moment, since there are inconsistencies in this project (see https://github.com/namecoin/electrum-nmc/issues/6). The support directory is missing even though it exists in the master branch of the project. Thus, you must also clone the current state of this project (this will be corrected in future I guess, that is, all this hacking might not be necessary then):

Code:
cd /home/<user>/Downloads
git clone https://github.com/trezor/python-trezor.git

Then exchange folders:

Code:

The device (Trezor T) can now be detected from electrum-nmc, but only, if it is unlocked!

Finally, so that electrum-nmc and the Trezor show the same addresses, two lines must be adapted (see https://github.com/namecoin/electrum-nmc/issues/3). In

Code:
electrum-nmc/plugins/trezor/trezor.py

change line 177 from

Code:
return "Testnet" if constants.net.TESTNET else "Bitcoin"

to

Code:
return "Testnet" if constants.net.TESTNET else "Namecoin"

and in

Code:
electrum-nmc/lib/keystore.py

change line 712 from

Code:
coin = 1 if constants.net.TESTNET else 0

to

Code:
coin = 1 if constants.net.TESTNET else 7

Last but not least, build it newly:

Code:
cd <path to electrum-nmc>/electrum-nmc
pip3 uninstall electrum-nmc
pip3 install .[full]

However again:

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
