Sounds good, I'd say it makes investing in NMC a more risky, I think Namecoin's value is in the merged mining and the total hashrate, i haven't been flowing btcd much, do you think it could fly as an alt?
What are you talking about?

Btcd is an implementation of the Bitcoin protocol written in Go, not an altcoin.

If a btcd-like implementation of Namecoin existed, you'd basically get the advantages of all the upgrades to Bitcoin that happened since 0.3 that Namecoin never got.


thanks, I show my ignorance, I though btcd was a clone of of the Bitcoin protocol written in go. i'd change my mind and say that sounds awesome.
who knows Namecoin could have some benefits to Monetas.  

Thank me in Bits 12MwnzxtprG2mHm3rKdgi7NmJKCypsMMQw

Back to gold  Grin

A friend of mine, who is into TA, told me he is shorting gold because he thinks gold will drop below 1000 USD/ounce...
Seems unlikely to me, but what do you guys think?

The gold manipulation is exposed now. Guess gold will start to rally again in the near future, no?

This seems counter intuitive given Russia is looking to buy gold, maybe the FED is shorting Uukraine gold with new fractional reserve paper gold.

Nah, they are shorting the gold they "transported" from Ukraine to store it safely in undisclosed location in case there wont be Ukraine in the future. Nice "borrowing" USA, well played.

Yes, that's where most of Europe's gold went. I doubt it's were they say it is.

Namecoin isn't a monetary coin.

LMAO for non-monetary coins.

namecoin is useful as it allows a decentralized censorship resistant DNS .bit domains

its a cool alt coin thats been out for a long time.

I wouldn't speculate on namecoin, but i can see myself possibly buying a few to get a .bit domain



actually namecoin is interesting from a theoretical perspective. [...] The fact the gold-bugs are not jumping on NMC in hoardes tells me the whole "intrinsic value" argument is flawed.

Distributed TLD/DNS database: yes

Database that can't have values removed: no


Using coin mining as an incentive for the problem that Namecoin is trying to solve doesn't work IMO. There's just no reason to have a separate cryptocoin for every implementation of a decentralised network that uses cryptographic proofs to operate.

In bitcoin, the justification is there, as every data unit (the coins) must originate from a mining block reward to ensure the validity of transaction inputs. The database for TLD/DNS serving doesn't need to store the original instantiation of the domain name or it's DNS resolution mapping, that information is no longer relevant the moment it changes (and there can exist the need for it to change frequently in either case). The wasteful bloat would probably kill a working Namecoin system before it became really useful. It still does a good job of popularising the idea.

I think the uncensorable web domains issue will be solved by some overlay protocol to MAIDsafe or MetaDisk (or perhaps a new rival decentralised storage system)

Well... I'm still bullish on gold, for the mid term. I think there is a chence crypto will take a large part of the gold market in 10-20 years. But not in the next 5 years. I still have some gold. I sold some for BTC around 500 USD/BTC.

However, the bull market of BTC will be greater than the Gold bull market.

Tried to find a friend from whom I could lend some fiat to buy BTC with my gold als "pawn", but nobody accepted. I even offered to discount the gold value with 20% and offered a montly interest rate of 1%. Well, now it's to late. I will not buy BTC anymore. I have my stash and am happy with it. I will keep the gold as hedge against crypto failing ( Roll Eyes)

Im upping my previous 85% to 90% that we never see sub $1180 again. The bottom is in, smart money is accumulating. I havent bought as much gold since 2008 when it crashed to 600. everyone back then proclaiming gold dead just like they are now.

For sub $1000 gold to happen, we'd have to see 15% interest rates and fiat printing massively reduced. Expect that to happen ? We live in an entirely different world then 1980.

The Fed will never allow another '08 deflationary crash to happen again. They are going for broke, the next collapse will be the end of the USD.

On the up side, there is a good chance it will be integrated with Open-Transactions, for all those cool 2.0 Bitcoin type services, solving the P2P trust of individual identity in a decentralized and trust free way.
Monetas just hired two Go programmers to work on adding features to btcd.

What if they used those coders also to fork btcd and modify it to into nmcd - a Go implementation of Namecoin?

Sounds good, I'd say it makes investing in NMC a more risky, I think Namecoin's value is in the merged mining and the total hashrate, i haven't been flowing btcd much, do you think it could fly as an alt?

I'd agree that merged-mining provides more value to a coin than anything else these new p&d alt coins offer. However the market hasn't priced it in yet so I'd say you are making a smart move by buying merged-mined coins...

Look at Devcoin its price is super duper low, and in comparison coins with similar amounts of supply are priced higher, not even being merge-mined. So it's just smart investment imo.

it's about understanding Bitcoin as a whole; the technical aspects plus the economic incentives involved.  if he fails to understand either one of those, he fails to understand Bitcoin.

The same can be said for economists who dismiss BTC.  They fail to understand the technology behind it.

Ha Ha.  Peter Schiff and other gold bugs came to mind.  They seem to understand the economics of sound money.  Its the keynesians who are totally clueless.

People with a degree in economics will be among the last to truly understand the economics behind Bitcoin. Too much disinformation posing as knowledge stands between them and understanding.
