Re: Internationalizing the website

typically users have a tool to change typing between their language and english, while having a domain name in strange characters makes the domain more difficult to access to latin-character users. Regional domains, like namecoin.co.uk and namecoin.ru are more likely to suffer legal action because t...

Re: Options for creating your id/ and d/

first try to launch with /rescan option , then wait. If still persist the error try to delete the blockchain files, then launch again and see if it gives you the same error. I don't have linux but from other user's posts looks like i may take a while to sync and it looks like frozen but it's just do...

Re: [Brainstorming] Namecoin could benefit from sidechains

My understanding is that regular sidechains won't have any coins to start with (unless get-quick-rich pump&dump alt.chain of the day) and people can "buy" and "sell" them at a fixed exchange rate. Possible benefits: shorter block time, lower fees, issue shares etc. In the case of NMC. It could be wh...

[Brainstorming] Namecoin could benefit from sidechains

Since the topic of the day at /r/bitcoin is sidechains , with even a paper , it'll be nice to start a discussion about this. First: they propose bitcoin backed sidechains , however it is possible to enable namecoin to have sidechains and at the same time to be a side chain of btc with the particular...

Re: [Brainstorming] Namecoin SPV

@tosh0 I don't follow how you're planning on verifying the authenticity of the snapshot. Downloading an entire name database to be able to resolve anything would be much less usable compared to what dolphin is talking about, which only requires block headers. -It would be verified since nodes/miner...

Re: [Brainstorming] Namecoin SPV

i think there's another way, to allow for trust-less light weight client bootstart. it's kinda strange but simpler and should allow to only need the last 200 blocks and be perfectly valid. (it can be combined with the previous proposal) Just copy the utorrent model, every 200 blocks create a snapsho...

Re: Identifi (Sirius Interview)

well, there could be a special transaction or flag that ads reputation points to a name, but to prevent spam, this should only be done by people that already has reputation. Maybe client can hardcode a few devs names that start with reputation 10. and the reputation is lost should the name expire or...

Re: Donation Address For Domain Namespace

So it works already, but limited to the name address: Send to d/name sends to the name address. The next step could be what domob says: in which case I suggest the "bitcoin" (or "namecoin") field, similarly to the id/ spec. Maybe to be able to pass a parameter to nmcontrol or the -qt along with the ...
