    This project is dead I guess?

    No, but unlike other altcoins, Namecoin developers are not funded/loaded with coins and so they have little time or motive to spend their time on marketing and public relations. I am here to help with basic namecoin questions. And by the way, this channel used to be linked to the #namecoin IRC channel on freenode, but is not at the moment, so your questions are not being relayed there. usually there are one or two namecoin developers/volunteers there.

    ZeroNet’s description of the use of the blockchain differs from NameCoins, can you explain if they are just describing the same thing differently or if their platform employs cryptography in a unique manner?
    samurai321
    @samurai321
    zeronet does not use the blockchain. it contacts zeronet server that is running a namecoin client to resolve .bit domains that are "zeronet enabled". You can register .bit domains with the namecoin software. A zeronet enabled domain is one that contains info formated according to zeronet FAQ page. .bit domains are virtual domains not recognized yet by the icann or the goverments, just like bitcoin. Namecoin is a platform for registering data, mainly domain data, into the namecoin blockchain. Bitcoin miners can mine namecoins for free at the same time, aprox 0.03 NMC are required to register data up to 500bytes on the NMC blockchain .

    Hi guys, I am new to namecoin. Trying to estimate costs of namecoi transaction and digging into some details.
    The question I have is about value size. In faq I fount that values are limited to 520 bytes. Does it mean whole json in TX is limited to 520 bytes, or every value in key:value JSON format is limited ti that size?
    samurai321
    @samurai321

    520 bytes for name_update to work

    It should be twice that amount but there is some bug.

    @samurai321
    i am not sure, but you should try to only publish links to the data and meta data, like filehashes, dns server ip, url, etc. not the data itself. currently it costs around 0.03 NMC to have your name for a year and 0.005 to update or renew the name, something that you must do every 200days, currently. this matters should go to the wish-list for a a hard-fork. namecoin/namecoin-core#53

    @jmokate Please use the Matrix or IRC channels listed on the Namecoin website to ask questions about Namecoin; we're not using Gitter anymore. Thanks. :)
