Re: Update for BIP65 softfork

@domob, is it feasible to temporarily revert 71cc9d9fe829efd9c9b012c4cd1ece1d988b4869 for Namecoin Core master, 0.13, and 0.12 branches, and re-enable that commit once AAA has been deployed? I realize that doing this will expose Namecoin Core users to increased risk of malleability attacks by non-m...

Re: Update for BIP65 softfork

This makes sense. We can certainly disable the S-malleability fix, but I'm not sure if that's really what we should do. The Qt pull request has been pending for a really long time now, and from what I understand, it mostly works. Is there anything strongly blocking just merging that and getting ever...

Re: Namecoin Core softfork heights

EDIT 2: Also that is not a good idea. I think we should get BIP65 fully activated on the network as soon as possible ACK, with the exception that I'd like to replace "as soon as" with "as soon as we've informed the users of 0.3.80 and older clients, including NMC exchanges admins". For details see ...

Re: Update for BIP65 softfork

Before I post these warnings in the bitcointalk thread I want to make sure I'm not missing anything. Comments welcome: This also affects users of the Namecoin-Qt 0.3.80 client and older. As soon as we hit the 95% threshold a substantial number of transactions issued by a 0.3.80 client or older will...

Update for BIP65 softfork

Quick heads up to any miners: Softfork voting on BIP65 (version=4 blocks) is in the "enforce" state now - 88% of the hashrate indicates readiness. At 95%, any blocks found by not-yet-upgraded miners will be invalidated - so try to update as soon as possible to a current version. If you do not want t...

Re: Namecoin Core softfork heights

I'm leaning towards specifying the heights as block 130k on testnet and 250k on mainnet (but am still testing if that's actually fine). I'll also add checkpoints at them. If there are no objections until tomorrow evening (CEST), I'll finish the merge and push with that change. EDIT: Actually, it see...

Namecoin Core softfork heights

Upstream Bitcoin recently replaced the pre-BIP9 softfork logic with hardcoded heights when the three forks (BIP34, BIP65 and BIP66) activated. Does anyone know what the correct heights are for Namecoin (both main and testnet), so I can set them while merging? (Just in case someone already has it, I'...

Re: will prove ownership, 10btc fixed price premium dot bits

I doubt anyone will pay that much (probably 10 BTC would be too high even for single-letter domains). My random guestimate is that those might be worth 10-50 NMC at best. (But of course, I can be wrong.)

Re: when I buy a .bit using namecoin, who gets the nmc ?

Technically, the coins are "locked" in your name, but there is no way to get them ever "out" again - so yes, they are burnt.
