Re: Namecoin as Root-CA for .bit-domains/identities

If a particular structure and set of options were enforced on them, it would be possible to "compress" an ECDSA certificate down to specify only the start/end dates, compressed public key, and signature. This breaks down to: * 33 bytes for the compressed public key * 32 bytes for r * 32 bytes for s ...

Re: UNO Commitments

Have you thought at all about wire format for proofs? Would be interesting to do some testing. Any opinions on Hash160 vs Hash256 vs SHA256? I somewhat favor Hash160 to keep sizes down, but this is not a strong opinion. If radix trees are being used, we could do something like this for each level: [...

I tried it with SERVFAIL as Ryan suggested and it works. Thanks for the hint. :mrgreen: I did not notice any lag. I have not yet managed to measure the delay, my guess still is that it is neglectable. I am somewhat surprised that this works. Please test thoroughly to ensure it's behaving as expecte...
