Namecoin (NMC) is an open-source decentralized cryptocurrency that improves on Bitcoin. Namecoin launched in April 2011, and became the first fork of Bitcoin, which made Namecoin the first altcoin. It was first to implement merged mining and a decentralized DNS. Namecoin was also the first solution to Zooko’s Triangle, the long-standing problem of producing a naming system that is simultaneously secure, decentralized, and human-meaningful.
