Re: Discussion for revised fees

That's still at 7 cents, right? Squatters will need to invest $70/1000 domains. I think we need to have it at $10, median price range for domain registrations.

Let's writeup an actual response and drop it to authors and the press.

Re: Can we ever expect to access .bit domains with Firefox,

There is no short answer to this question, but I'll try to provide an authoritative summary of the situation. I interned for Mozilla and it's a *crazy* organization: they live stream their staff meetings and there are random people from all over who sit in on them and populate the IRC channel with a...

Re: Discussion for revised fees

But that's why it's refreshed hourly, they could control it for ... an hour. Anyone could manipulate the namecoin market in X number of ways. This is about putting in a feedback mechanism that doesn't require manual patching.

Re: The need for a DHT

I need to be able to make a GET request for DNS records. I have a hacked XML-RPC and PHP bridge setup right now, but we need something that is decentralized: bootstrapping nodes which are not under the control of any one organization. A DHT is basically the short-term memory version of a blockchain ...

Re: Discussion for revised fees

We could just have it set at a fixed dollar/namecoin exchange rate. We can't set that internally, but it could be set to pool the price from multiple exchanges. We would have to figure out how to smooth out price spikes but it would be a hell of a lot better than fixed price we have now. It would th...

Re: Namecoin Torrent tracking

I too am dodging a final at the moment but I'd like to get in my two cents. For one, torrents on NMC doesn't make a whole lot of sense. As someone said earlier, this would be a "directory" not a tracker: a tracker coordinates peers in the swarm which means live updating of the information. I know th...

Re: "tls"/"fingerprint" and "alias" fields

Aliases are CNAMES so you are basically asking if TLS should be wildcard by default? Wildcard domains were created to bilk money from the consumer, let's go with wildcard by default. I think everyone is confusing aliases for the translate field (which I did at first) and that's basically ICANN domai...

The need for a DHT

As some of you know, I've been working on a pure client-side/in-browser Javascript resolver for Namecoin which avoids all of the legal problems inherent with proxies and mirrors. So far, I've been planning on using various sources for routing information, such as Github, Facebook, etc. This is prima...

Re: Testnet

Of course welcome any donations (I'm working on the Namecoin part of Moneychanger and libnmcrpc announced in another thread), but to be honest, I won't burn more than a single NMC or so if I test on the real net. I can afford this, so please send me coins only if you really want to support my cause...
