As far as I understand Post-Quantum Encryption could be included into Namecoin .bit websites..............however it requires the User And the Website to both have the capability.......of which all web browsers do not include any PQ-Encryption


This would be a good idea to implement and would be the fast track to securing the internet! 


It's simple and easy for a website to generate a PQ-Encryption SSL certificate using Namecoin right now as the resolver however we need to get a Tor Browser Module that communicates with the Website PQ-Encryption........most all the work is done already except the Tor browser module..............

Has anyone managed to talk to the dev team? They clearly still post updates and latest release was just a couple months ago but outside of what they post on the site sometimes they seem rather quiet about the project.

Several of our developers (myself included) are easy to talk to on IRC ( https://www.namecoin.org/resources/chat/ ).  Not really sure how or when you were trying to contact us, but you posted that right around the time that I was on partial sick leave, so maybe that was a factor.  I definitely try to be approachable (and I don't think I do *too* bad a job at this), but at the same time, if I were spending all my time answering questions on all platforms where people could conceivably try to talk to me, I wouldn't have any time left to write code.  IRC is pretty low-friction and has a decent SNR, so it's probably the best place to ask questions if you want a quick answer from me.

Would be nice if they could address why NMC is not being carried on any major exchanges. If we can get it listed on one of the non-chicom trading sites I suspect we'd witness a major spike in market cap. Maybe they don't want this yet but the project's over 10 years old no?

I'm going to have to agree with BayAreaCoins on this: I'd rather spend my time making Namecoin itself bigger, so that exchanges want to add Namecoin of their own accord.

Meanwhile, we released Electrum-NMC v4.0.0b0: https://www.namecoin.org/2021/12/17/electrum-nmc-v4.0.0b0-released.html

And in particular, this release contains a nice new security enhancement by Yanmaani, which he also upstreamed to Electrum: https://www.namecoin.org/2022/01/07/unix-domain-sockets-in-electrum.html

The most important thing for Namecoin is Tor Browser integration to simplify it's use for users........How is that progressing?  Have the Tor people moved on or are they still interested? 

Brave Browser might add resolver has there been any discussion with Brave Browser?


Considering one of founders of Mozilla just flipped out over them accepting Bitcoin donations making firefox stop accepting them will it affect Tor Firefox relationship from integrating Namecoin?

I think that must be his angle he would bust a nut in a fat heifer if Namecoin got integrated into Firefox lol........

And the most important thing for Bitcoin is Merge Mining a Real World Utility


I am not gonna lie, It helped me greatly by them suppressing Namecoin so that I bought a boat of it with other Crypto Profits Early 2021............Namecoin is a gem amid a Sea of Shitcoins!

The Namecoin integration in Tor Browser Nightly wasn't talked about publicly until it was merged and the Tor Browser Team gave me a green light to give a surprise talk at 36C3 about it.  The next similar announcement will probably follow a similar PR path.  I don't really like being unable to talk about in-progress work, but unfortunately that's how this kind of stuff works.  Work is happening here though.

Thanks for surfacing that; I wasn't aware of this particular drama.  I think it's unlikely to impact us, but hard to know.  Definitely useful to be aware of it.  FWIW the Namecoin.org FAQ has a section on global heating.

To me namecoin is better than what people value on web-based exchanges. It's making the entire backbone and structure for the decentralized internet we all want, even if we don't know it. I'm woke. I've seen it in action and I see your plans because my interests aligned with your project before I even knew about it. I've spent my time assisting in Devcoin, but lately I am acquiring as many NMC as I can afford and running a node bc I believe in supporting your fellow Merge Mined OG networks. And btw I value NMC > BTC anyday. What people value in the current day is what they're told bc this web 2.0 media state of affairs and society as a whole having the wool over their eyes - because of the propaganda in the palm of their hands 24 hours a day makes them miss out on what they need. They don't critically think or make their own decisions on what they NEED. They do as they are told, they think they need what they are influenced to believe they need.. but I was lucky to wake up from that world. This is the infrastructure of a new dawn. And I wanted to thank you personally. BTW I just registered on the phpBB - haven't seen one of those since I was looking at web archives of the pre-Bitcoin exchange use of MtGox lol. Ironically, Mark Karpeles is in love with php too. And Mark Zuckerberg was once as well. I love forums... the Web 1.0-2.0 transition I spent childhood days posting on Showdowncards dot com for the MLB trading card game made by the same Wizards of the Coast that made MTG cards - Funny sometimes it feels like I'm in a loop. God speed to Namecoin. Long live FOSS and decentralized P2P mesh networks and liberating protocols from the man.

The most important PQ crypto for TLS is key exchange, i.e. a replacement for ECDHE -- *not* signatures (i.e. a replacement for ECDSA).  PQ key exchange doesn't need anything to be changed in the certificate, so you can create a standard Namecoin TLS certificate today with the default settings, and it will work with whatever PQ key exchange the TLS client/server support.  PQ signatures are going to be trickier, because while you could in principle create Namecoin records that support them, most PQ signature schemes involve public keys that are quite large, and Namecoin does not support hashing the public keys (because doing this would break a lot of TLS software).  Also there's not much point to doing PQ TLS signatures with Namecoin since they're authenticated with a non-PQ blockchain signature.

Speaking of signatures in TLS, p11mod now supports signatures.  https://www.namecoin.org/2022/01/27/p11mod-signatures.html

Yes, Quantum Key Exchange Algo's I understand this is what I was meaning and the only real transport encryption is Cha-Cha20 ATM which is already in browsers..............however websites linked with Cloud like to disable even that encryption standard so assuming anyone in the world who could possibly increase encryption and resources is not likely to advance it...........The world is still fighting the same fight Edward Snowden revealed.................the desire to weaken or backdoor all encryption standards.............

Quantum key TLS size would not be much bigger than traditional cryptography after compression..............


The Namecoin not being Quantum does not matter as it's only resolving the name...........not the data.........and Tor isn't likely to adopt Quantum Encryption anytime soon either but getting .bit readable websites like .onion away from Censorship is more important than PQ Encryption........for now...............

I view this as a long term strategy to force the issue of how the Quantum Computers can break things, which would force Bitcoin/Namecoin to adopt new Hardware/Algos...............As if websites .bit were using PQ-E they would attack Namecoin instead..........but if .bit websites take lazy approach they will just get attacked and people will think it's Op-Sec doing it........instead of Quantum Computers breaking it ect..........

Is that a comment about the accessibility of the PQ discussion, or my p11mod article?

Meanwhile, I significantly improved the Golang DNS seeder, which should fix the long-standing issues with Namecoin Core failing to find peers.  https://www.namecoin.org/2022/01/29/go-dns-seeder-improvements.html

Tor just issued a statement they will scrap the partnership. No reason to integrate a random old coin in their systems. You guys have a stain of hauteur on u. U make things up trying to insinuate that the coin u have been bagholding for 5 years, is worth a dime. U have become too gross in thinking that someone else cares about ur unicorn bags.

Probably cuz your using Windows 10 OS?

No, really just download the Wallet and Blockchain, the Namecoin Blockchain is only 6 GB currently...........


Bitcoin Blockchain size is something like 300 GB or more IDK


Or you just wanting Electrum for the 13 Word Backup?

The wallet I downloaded is for windows and tried the 3 types for windows OS standalone/portable/installer so not sure why windows 10 would be the issue.

I don't want whole blockchain but only lite wallet to keep the coins I bought off the exchange so using the passphrase/seed code is the one I need.The older 3.3.10 wallet I first sent the coins to worked initially before but no longer works now because it won't connect either so not sure what the problem is.

Which version?  4.0.0b0?  Some of the servers were reportedly down when you posted that, but at least two should be back up now.  Is the issue still happening?

In other news:

  • We added a new protection against forgetting to renew on time.  This one was a massive team effort, encompassing a bunch of Namecoin developers, as well as our friends from Tor, Mozilla, Monero, Cyberia, and Cyphrs.
  • I'm adding another abstraction layer to ncp11, which makes Namecoin's TLS interoperability easier to audit.
  • The Netherlands government (via NLnet) is funding Aerth and me with an additional 30k EUR for TLS development.

Yes it is this version. I had previous version 3.10 which used to work and then updated to this 4.0 version which worked at first but after some time when I went to use it then it would not connect so tried the older version again which also would not connect either.

I will try again this evening and will report back accordingly.

Thanks.



I still cannot get electrum to connect. I have manually went through each server also but nothing works and am stuck on block 518352. Bitcoin electrum works fine so not sure what the problem is.

Is there a list of working servers available?

Thanks

Guys I got it to work eventually on a friends computer who has windows OS so it must have been my machine giving some issue.Strange though because I used 2 different machines I had and neither worked but my friends did.We could only get the 3.10 version to connect though but 4.0 would not connect.I think it might be because older versions of windows or something.

Indeed, one of the few coins which went positively through this bearish week Smiley Better than TUSD Grin

Seems NMC is still in a bull market since early/mid 2021. It even reached a 4-year high in April. Could indicate that it's seriously undervalued ...
