Re: Hardfork 2016 Value Size Limit

I'll post a more thorough analysis of this later, once I try to analyze the economic arguments. But, we should consider whether it's possible to implement value size changes without a hardfork. In particular, how do the Namecoin consensus rules view a name_update that has more than 2 PUSHDATA ops? ...

Re: Google Summer of Code 2016

Well then. I opened this thread a month ago so that we could try to get things done ahead of time. Joseph is the only one who has assisted substantively in the past month. At this point, if we can only get 2 people to look at a wiki page or forum thread in a month, I don't think I can in good consc...

Re: Getting Jekyll deployed soon

If not, I suggest that we consider pushing a commit to the old site which does an HTML redirect to the version of the Jekyll site that is hosted by github.io. The benefit is that this is trivial to deploy and can be done very quickly. The drawback is that end users would see a github.io URL instead...

Re: [NMDF] Namecoin Bounty Cornucopia

They talked to me extensively and discussed it on IRC. Feel free to check the IRC logs on #namecoin-meeting. I believe there is more than reasonable consensus that BitcoinJ is an acceptable way to go about SPV support (indeed, all of the P2P SPV Bitcoin clients on bitcoin.org use BitcoinJ), so I'm ...

Re: Module Request: Keep a Namespace in Sync

I wrote a patch for Namecoin Core which adds a name_sync command, which is used to implement namesync. It's in a subdirectory of this repository but github is down so: https://github.com/hlandau/namesync Hit! Once again I am impressed by the thorough specification and general sophistication of your...

Re: [NMDF] Namecoin Bounty Cornucopia

I suggest we double the bounty for the SPV client from 0.5BTC to 1.0BTC. Any objections? FYI, EN and Stephen from OU are currently working on this, using BitcoinJ. Interesting. what is OU? If they want to claim the bounty they should post here. Well, right now they haven't yet earned the bounty, so...

Re: Segregated Name Values

Very interesting idea. But there still need to be incentives in place for miners to actually distribute the value data. The only reason miners have to broadcast blocks bodies is so that others can verify them....

Re: Hardfork 2016 Value Size Limit

I'm all in for an increase to 2kb. people are paying money to store a tiny amount of info on his/her domain, the least we can do is allow to store the whole set of data in one step, linking many names to store a tiny bit of data is redundant and causes overhead and maintenance problems. Well, I wou...
