Re: name_new and name_firstupdate - race against squatters

Good question.

Not a developer, but I think that Alice should win.

Re: Idea: Sidechains for Names

I don't think this is any worse than a situation that has multiple non-interoperable blockchains, is it? Presumably the network effect would encourage people to agree on a small number of pegged sidechains, otherwise risk their intended audience not being able to view it. I want to be able to resol...

Re: Idea: Namecoin eMail

Does anyone know how the keyserver protocol works? (I guess it is part of the respective RFCs, but I've never bothered to look at the details so far.) OpenPGP HTTP Keyserver Protocol (HKP) (Draft) There are some free software implementations. SKS is used by the MIT keyserver. PHKP is another one wr...

Re: [NMDF] Namecoin Marketing and Development Fund

I'm not so happy with this one. Closed-source and a bit buggy. Try

OK, I withdraw the proposal to donate to namecha.in from NMDF until the owner publish the code as free software.

Re: [NMDF] Namecoin Marketing and Development Fund

May I suggest a donation to 2 useful non-for-profit sites? Both are promoting Namecoin usage, so I consider that them are doing some good Namecoin marketing and contributing to its good reputation.

https://namecha.in/
https://nameid.org/

Disclaimer: I'm just a user of both sites.

Re: Idea: Namecoin eMail

Thanks for that info. So it sounds like adding id/ to GPG would be the logical step. Maybe there would be a way to have NMControl follow the keyserver protocol, so that GPG doesn't need changes itself? I guess that it may be possible to have an id/ keyserver to retrieve keys. When someone ask for a...

Re: Lighthouse?

NMDF currently holds something like 4BTC and 2000NMC. So a general lighthouse project is not appropriate until we have invested some of that into bounties. Seems logical. I see that you posted a Spring Bounty Cornucopia . Nice :D Also I think it would work better if the lighthouse project would be ...

Re: Lighthouse?

I would ask that you make it clear that while the address is accurate and the Namecoin developers will certainly be able to use any raised funds to advance the project, this fundraiser is not directly operated by the Namecoin developers (much like how the successful GPG fundraiser was not directly ...
