Q: What is openalias? How does it work?
A: openalias is Monero's aliasing system. It is meant to make it simpler to send moneroj to an address, by applying a label (itself using DNS) to an address. Using DNS prevents landgrabing (of course, landgrabing DNS itself is still an issue).
For instance, if you want to send moneroj to support the development of Monero, you can either send to the dev fund address
Code:
46BeWrHpwXmHDpDEUmZBWZfoQpdc6HaERCNmx1pEYL2rAcuwufPN9rXHHtyUA4QVy66qeFQkn6sfK8aHYjA3jk3o1Bv16em
or the much simpler to memorise alias:
Code:
donate.monero.cc
Of course, before sending to an alias, the said alias must have been created - see the openalias website for instructions.

Does openalias already work in simplewallet? Or is this alias system to be introduced in the upcoming GUI client?

It is done through DNS, so you add a record to your domain. If don't have a domain, get one through your favorite DNS registrar. Simplewallet will decode these so you can type "transmit 3 donate.monero.cc 100" and it will go to the project donation fund.

Example:

Code:
donate.monero.cc. 300 IN TXT "oa1:xmr recipient_address=46BeWrHpwXmHDpDEUmZBWZfoQpdc6HaERCNmx1pEYL2rAcuwufPN9rXHHtyUA4QVy66qeFQkn6sfK8aHYjA3jk3o1Bv16em\; recipient_name=Monero Development\; tx_description=Donation to Monero Core Team\;"
donate.monero.cc. 300 IN TXT "oa1:btc recipient_address=1FhnVJi2V1k4MqXm2nHoEbY5LV7FPai7bb\; recipient_name=Monero Development\; tx_description=Donation to Monero Core Team\;"

It was never mentionned in a missive that it worked with simplewallet Smiley
Regarding the favourite DNS registrar, I swear exclusively by Gandi.net and not (only) because they are French. Because the founders are longtime active proponents of a libre Internet and the new acquirer follows the same ideals. Plus their No Bullshit policy and it this is not enough, read this article about why Gandi matters.

What version of simplewallet implements openalias? I'm on 0.8.8.3 (just waiting for the next version to upgrade).

I tried sending to donate.monero.cc and i get an error:

Code:
[wallet 47Vmj6]: transfer 3 donate.monero.cc 1
Error: wrong address: donate.monero.cc

Q: How to use a remote node?
A: if you don't have the 6-8 Gb of RAM presently needed to comfortably use your computer whilst synchronising the blockchain with bitmonerod, you can use a remote node, like hegemoon's node. This means you don't have to run bitmonerod anymore (this does negatively affect decentralisation, but not much)
For Linux:
Code:
./simplewallet --wallet-file=wallet.bin --daemon-host 88.151.101.22 --daemon-port 5012
Change wallet.bin accordingly. The code above assumes your working directory (use pwd or ls to check) is the one where both your wallet and your simplewallet binary are located.
The daemon host and port are hegemoon's, but you can use another one.

Tip1
You can install then use rlwrap to cycle through commands on the Linux version (no need for this in the Windows version)
Code:
sudo apt-get rlwrap
Code:
rlwrap ./simplewallet --wallet-file=wallet.bin --daemon-host 88.151.101.22 --daemon-port 5012

Tip2
To be sure to always be on the right directory for launching simplewallet, just add a command to go to the right directory
Code:
cd /bitmonero/build/release/bin/ && ./simplewallet --wallet-file=wallet.bin --daemon-host 88.151.101.22 --daemon-port 5012

Tip3
You can combine both:
Code:
cd /bitmonero/build/release/bin/ && rlwrap ./simplewallet --wallet-file=wallet.bin --daemon-host 88.151.101.22 --daemon-port 5012

Im the admin of this server, so its better right now to use the fqdn name : xmr1.coolmining.club, instead of the IP 88.151.101.22 as far as i can switch ip if server has problem Smiley

and also
Code:
./simplewallet --daemon-address xmr1.coolmining.club:5012 --wallet-file ./test1.bin
as shorter command line argument Smiley

Updated; thanks. Do you confirm the quote below?
Quote
Change --wallet-file with the name of your wallet (extension included)
Also, what does ./test1.bin stands for?

You should create an openalias donate.coolmining.club Smiley

test1.bin is the name of my wallet, aka the name i provided when i create it. So user will replace it with his current wallet name.
And "./" stands for current directory im in.
This argument take a filename with his path, so i could use "--wallet-file /home/netmonk/bitmonero/wallet.bin" for exemple, meaning i use the wallet.bin wallet file located in the /home/netmonk/bitmonero/ subdirectory.

Why is an anonymous currency important?
I've heard that side-chains make altcoins redundant?
First question: Why is a private currency important?
Second question: sidechains will make the price of an altcoin pegged to the price of bitcoin. Granted, this is already the case, but this is conjonctural (temporary). With sidechains, this will be structural (permanent).
