Re: WDYT about soft fork to enable some Bitcoin features

Also, just to be clear: I do not propose to cancel the AAA idea. I think we should do this "simple" soft fork as soon as possible to remove issues with forks activated now on Bitcoin already, but we should still work on AAA and land it at a later point in time (6 months to a year after the soft fork...

WDYT about soft fork to enable some Bitcoin features

Recently, it is getting more and more delicate (and risky) to keep Namecoin on par with upstream Bitcoin code due to efforts that clean up soft-fork activations in Bitcoin that are not yet active in Namecoin - for instance, https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/11739. We have been talking about th...

Re: [Brainstorming] Namecoin SPV

If you are interested to look into UNO commitments, there's also https://github.com/domob1812/namecore/tree/uno-trie which I started to work on two years ago. It might be useful to base further work on, but maybe it is also easier to just start from a clean slate. Honestly I'm a bit skeptical that ...

Re: Recovery wallet.dat after delete from hdd (python script

The difference might be between compressed and uncompressed keys - the old client only has uncompressed keys, while the new client uses compressed ones.

Re: sendrawtransaction gives -26 error in Namecoin 0.13.99

Yes, that's roughly speaking the intent I had when I implemented it like this: The raw tx API should really be a very low level layer, and by not prefilling the name input, you gain additional flexibility. Adding the name input is not hard, just use name_show to look up the txid and vin.

Re: Is my JSON data in Namecoin ID correct?

Re: What version should I use?

Let me just add: With/without UI here means "UI for managing names". The wallet UI from Bitcoin Core is included also in the "stock" Namecoin Core build - but I think it is good to get more testers for Brandon's code, so that we can eventually merge it back if everything is fine.
