Annoucement: 20K in funding and a mainline rebase!

Post by indolering »

Christmas has come early for Namecoin: Discus Fish (aka F2Pool) has donated 20,000 Namecoins to fund a reimplementation based on mainline Bitcoin!

What’s more is that chief Namecoin scientist Daniel Kraft has been working so hard that the code is already usable! Indeed, Discus Fish has been using it in production for a few weeks. The code is still considered experimental but you can check it out on Daniel’s Github repo. As always, make encrypted backups before playing around.

We are working on a series of posts over the holiday outlining our development roadmap including plans for NMControl, hybrid UTXO lite-clients, and more.

TL;DR: Namecoin is back!
DNS is much more than a key->value datastore.
