True though that the technology also needs to advance as it also does for other coins with active development. Standing the test of time is one thing, active development the other.
There is active development.  I've already mentioned the ConsensusJ light client.

The full client, namecoin-core follows Bitcoin development closely, the last update was 7 days ago.

The problem, for me, is still usability. It is still too difficult for the "general public" to use Namecoin. The Blockchain DNS project (browser extensions) I mentioned earlier is a big step forward as it works on two of the most popular browsers and works out-of-the-box. I think porting the Blockchain DNS extension to the remaining browsers (Safari and Edge/IE) and with a stable light client (ConsensusJ or Electrum) Namecoin can be a success.

The main reason namecoin is not heavily traded is because traders don't have a lite client to store their coins off exchanges.Same goes for regular Joe who has no interest in bit/dns and only wants a solid coin to use to buy his trash on the internet wherever a shop accepts namecoin.It all boils down to economics and the whole namecoin economy is wrong by only appealing to a niche audience.We are not all geeks but have a lot of respect for the developers of this legacy coin and many want to trade and use it for non geek stuff too.

Firstly, there are so many scam coins (check coinmarketcap), which have a higher market cap than Namecoin. Those projects are traded for speculative reasons, the additional benefit is limited, especially compared to Namecoin. You can't even buy something with those coins. Namecoin was once traded on kraken. They removed it. I do not know why.

Secondly, go back a few pages. There, we discussed ways to make Namecoin and the corresponding DNS more prominent. Even though our result is still limited. But I hope this will change in future.

Thirdly, I think, that there is relatively much development under way. E.g. I am looking forward to Namecoin version 0.15.99, which seems to be still in beta state (https://namecoin.org/2018/02/01/namecoin-core-0-15-99-name-tab-beta1.html).

Fourthly, the next Namecoin halving is scheduled for end of October.

Thus, it is time for this coin to shine again (imho)!

Signature verification (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6017.msg36620285#msg36620285)

I provided the wrong PGP-Key: D9D72D3A

The correct PGP-Key is: F8F7BF85

The verification worked in my case, because I had the correct key already imported!

Always check twice, what is posted in the internet!!!

Namecoin is one of the few tokens I have added to my portfolio for a long time. Presently ready to hold it for a long time.

Has anyone else got this working? There is no namecoind target in the makefile, so i built bitcoind.  My daemon is currently sitting at 0 blocks and doesn't recognize calls such as name_list and name_scan.

Namecoin is now ready for cross-chain dapps with the Blocknet Protocol!




Now that namecoin is compatible with the Blocknet Protocol, it can be used in cross-blockchain dapps and traded on beta Block DX!

You can read more about Blocknet, the Blocknet Protocol, and Block DX here:

https://blocknet.co

https://sites.google.com/view/blocknet/directory

To get started with trading on Block DX, follow this setup guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ciwLFSXwv6CXd3QEvVW88lHXo9CSIlweYOoSbDHkies/preview

The setup is in the process of being automated/abstracted so it's much easier and streamlined to use for beginners. In addition to that, in July we are planning to release SPV support which will allow for the creation of litewallets so whole blockchains will not need to be downloaded.
