Re: Decentralised exchange for names

(Writing a new post to keep some structure and not extend the already existing wall of text.) After some more thought, all we need is really just a basic P2P gossip network. So perhaps even writing that one from scratch would not be too much work and produce too much complexity - it is probably just...

Re: Decentralised exchange for names

These are valid points, but to me a big advantage of using the Namecoin P2P network itself is that with all other solutions, you need to set up and manage a separate P2P network - including how to seed nodes, perhaps running some stable nodes by the community and so on. Also, I certainly would like ...

Re: Adding DNS resolving features into Core

Actually, the core project is not only about having a decentralised DNS - it is about having a generic decentralised name/value storage with human-readable names. Using that for building a DNS is the initial application for which it was built, but there are other applications as well. So it does mak...

Decentralised exchange for names

I've recently been thinking about how to best implement a decentralised exchange for names (built upon atomic name trading but including some mechanism to post and match offers). I think that the core P2P network can be utilised also to exchange offers (not the blockchain, though, to avoid unnecessa...

Re: Git

Ok I see - so you do not actually want to propose how to do decentralised Git hosting; I thought that was what your proposal is all about, and was confused about how that relates to your currency. I agree that Namecoin is good to prevent potential censorship on the DNS level - in fact, that was the ...

Re: Git

Thanks for the details ... but to me that sounds basically like a design for a collateralised stablecoin (e.g. how Bitshares work), and not related at all to decentralised Git hosting. Where did I miss that? :D

Re: Git

Yeah sure, just post your idea. (Ideally in a way that is understandable by every reader here (not focussed on me). I think basic Austrian economics is something you can assume familiarity with in the crypt community, although a not too deep one.)

Re: Git

Ah ok, so your interest is on a more abstract level. I thought you were specifically concerned about Github being hostile and compromising Namecoin development, not in general about any such platform centralising development. While your concerns are (on this level) of course valid, I think they are ...

Re: Transfered Domains Show on both accounts

Ok, then probably Brandon or someone else more familiar with the Qt tab should comment on that. You can open an issue on Github (https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core), perhaps that will give you more visibility.

Re: Git

Git by itself is perfectly decentralised. Github is "just" used as a convenient tool to host one Git repository (but every developer has their own complete repository as well) and for discussions on issues and the like. We sign our commits using GPG (like upstream Bitcoin), which means that a compro...
