Re: Marketing management

24 views not one reply! Anyone here? Everybody watching this thread is wondering if you have some revolutionary idea for altcoin marketing ;) As I already expressed at bitcointalk, public-relation efforts for Namecoin need to emphasize on a sustainable long-term support. I could be wrong, though. I...

Re: sendrawtransaction gives -26 error in Namecoin 0.13.99

Could it be this is the result of that possible bug I recently observed? See https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/issues/150
Maybe a previous transaction of your wallet got stuck with that error code -4, and now createrawtransaction is malfunctioning because of this?

Re: NMC transaction not confirmed

Meanwhile I've been looking closer into an issue with name operations that looked completely different to your problem. However, there is a good chance we have found a bug that may affect both name operations as well as NMC transactions . If this is the case, then there is some good news: Could the ...

Re: sendrawtransaction gives -26 error in Namecoin 0.13.99

Do the sendrawtransaction again and watch the latest lines in your debug.log file. There must be something like this: ERROR: CheckNameTransaction: update without previous name input I guess you told your tx where to find the NMCs for paying the fees, but you didn't let it know what name you want to ...

Re: NMC transaction not confirmed

It seems the Namecoin client of the sending exchange has technical problems. The most likely reason is that they still use an old Namecoin software version. A few days ago the Namecoin network accepted BIP65. This means that old Namecoin clients cannot reliably create valid transactions anymore. I r...

Re: Can not renew my name

I have a name expired. If the name is expired, then it is expired . This means, that you waited too long (more than 36000 blocks = 6 months approximately) before you tried to update or renew it. You can try to register it again: 1) Check whether the name is still available. Example: if that name wa...

Transactions not confirmed (0.3.80 Namecoin clients)

Yesterday one of the mining pools (Slush) has finally updated their mining infrastructure. Slush was the last one of the larger mining pools that accepted all transactions from older Namecoin software. This means that half of the transactions from 0.3.80 clients or older will be unconfirmed forever!...

Re: Some questions with .bit domains.

1. Why does my domain belong to another Namecoin address? This observation can have one of these causes: (a) your Namecoin client automatically uses two different Namecoin addresses for creating a name (or domain name). You own both addresses. This is because creating a new name creates two blockch...

Re: PISP: Proposed solution for selective information sharin

Very interesting application use-case of the Namecoin blockchain. This could be a solution to the problem of how to control read-access to individial parts of one's public profile on the blockchain. I haven't looked at the security implications of the intended protocol, yet. If there are any securit...
