Re: Pirate Bay's .bit DNS

This is not newsworthy. As far as I can tell they're just running yet another OpenNIC server. I'm not sure why TorrentFreak thought this was interesting -- maybe because it has the word Pirate in it? I understand your arguments/points and they're valid. But we should look at this not only from a te...

Pirate Bay's .bit DNS

> The Pirate Party’s DNS has added benefits though, as it supports additional Top Level Domains including .geek or .pirate, and the Namecoin based .bit. In addition, it operates from Norway with minimal logging to guarantee users’ privacy. https://torrentfreak.com/pirate-party-offers-dns-to-bypass-p...

Re: How to do a depends build for namecore

On Debian Jessie, steps 4 and 5 failed for me unless I did this first: sudo apt-get install pkg-config autoconf libtool pkg-config is a new requirement in Bitcoin Core 0.11. It's not used if you build on Windows, but even on Windows it has to be installed. The same 3 packages need to be added to Ub...

Re: Name Squatting once again...

Thanks Cassini. Looks like either u/ has declined a lot relative to d/, or OneName representatives were incorrect about their registration numbers. Even so, they've squatted far more names than even exist in the id/ namespace. They are definitely the largest identity squatter, if not the largest na...

Re: Name Squatting once again...

I think my algorithm is censorship resistant. The famous last words. 3. Network gives 1 month for miners to investigate everything and decide how to vote To investigate what? They're just freaking miners for Pete's sake! This reminds me of those "works councils" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Works...

Re: Name Squatting once again...

I won't contact him. Just go to courte with documents needed and get my domain. For example, if I own a trademark. So I think there should be something like courte in NMC or the project will fail. Why would any particular court has jurisdiction over some particular public ledger? What if he owns th...

Re: Name Squatting once again...

Do you think name squatting is a severe problem in Namecoin? Sure, you are right! Squatting is the most important problem for NMC. I will go so far as to say that squatting is existential threat. Have you encountered problems with squatters, which made you think twice about using Namecoin again? Ye...

Re: Name Squatting once again...

* As of this writing and to the best of my knowledge, there exists no incentive for name squatters to refrain from bulk-registering Namecoin names. Since name squatting has yet to be recognized as a major problem, it does not seem to affect the price directly (at least I found no actual proof, whic...

Re: NMControl Windows Installer RC1

You can test from the command line: what your system does: 'nslookup nx.bit' or 'nslookup zombo.com' (will also tell you your default DNS) what NMControl does: 'nslookup nx.bit 127.0.0.1' or 'nslookup zombo.com 127.0.0.1' I hope this helps. Thanks for your bug reports and feedback. Let me know if t...
