How would I fork Bitcoin's current v0.9.2.1 release to make a wallet-only Namecoin-compatible client that supports merged mining?

Is it as easy as changing the port, irc bootstrap and message header? If so, where would I look in the code for those areas?

The protocol differences from bitcoin include:
Now that list seems a tad incomplete to me. As I thought Namecoin added the getworkaux RPC call as well? I don't think bitcoin has getworkaux implemented because they're not the auxillary chain, we are.
What am I after is a Namecoin wallet that is presumably more secure (because there have been more eyes looking at the bitcoin code over the last few years compared to the namecoin code) albeit with limited Namecoin functionality.

[Question] For Namecoin to be able to be merged mined next to Bitcoin, did something have to be adjusted to Bitcoin or was namecoin able to implement merged mining without any "permission".

if you can merge mine namecoin with bitcoin why can't bch and btc be mergemined together such that they both are using 100 percent of the hash rate?

Can a fork of bitcoin be merge mined like namecoin? This would absolve miners of any risk.

Miners could mine both chains and let the market choose which chain they wish to transact on.

Namecoin and the future of self-sovereign digital identity.

Namecoin's motto is "Bitcoin frees money – Namecoin frees DNS, identities, and other technologies."
biolizard89 has done fantastic work on the DNS part, but let's focus on the identity use case here. Recent events have convinced me that digital identity on the internet is broken. Consider:
What was true in 1993 when cartoonist Peter Steiner wrote "On the internet, nobody knows you are a dog" is still true today. The only difference is that identity is increasingly being weaponized using AI/ML so "On the internet, nobody knows you are a bot" would perhaps be more apt.
I read the following comment from a user on slashdot yesterday:
For the time being, you can assume that this comment was written by a human being. You can click on my username, look back at my history of posts, and go, "OK, here's a bunch of posts, by a person, going back more than a decade, to the TIME BEFORE BOTS." That is, before the first year of 2020.
Since humans are likely to adopt the majority opinion, bad actors find real value in being able to control the narrative online by surrounding the reader with manufactured opinions by bots that due to advances in ML/AI are quickly becoming indistinguishable from real users. This amounts to a Sybil attack on the minds of digital content consumers and poses major threat to the integrity of our social fabric.
Apart from the recent twitter incident used for scamming, nation states have been known to create massive bot armies of fake and hijacked user accounts to try and shift the narratives regarding the Hong Kong independence protests as well as national elections. This will only increase.
Currently, our digital identity is fragmented into silo's largely controlled by government institutions and mega corporations (FAANG) based on a "Trust us" model. As recent events have proven, this is a bad model and in dire need of improvement/replacement. IMHO we need to move from "Trust us" to a "Trust but verify" model where the user is in full control of their digital identity.
Namecoin can and should play an important role in building this 'web of trust composed of self-sovereign identities" as it is neutral (no owner), permissionless and secure (merge-mined). Daniel already developed a proof of concept with NameID but what can we do to take this further?
Personally I'd like to see users create Namecoin identities and link them to their social identities (e.g. Google, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, etc). Then whenever they create content, they sign it with their private keys. This would allow a reader to verify the content was created by the user. Content verification would have stopped the recent twitter hack, because even if the hackers would have access to internal admin tools they would not have the private keys that the users produce valid content with. "Not your keys, not your content"
Content verification is only one part. Ideally a user would like to verify the integrity of the content creator as well. E.g. has this user passed human verification in any of the linked platforms? Does a trusted linked entity vouch for the reputation or integrity of this user (e.g. a government entity, financial entity or non-governmental organization?). This would require those platforms to allow linking of Namecoin ID with their Platform ID and allow lookup and signing of metadata provided by these platforms. (e.g. UserID Y is linked to PlatformID X and completed human verification on date Z, signed Twitter).
I image users could install an extension similar to uBlock or Privacy Badger that contains human curated blacklists and heuristics that operate on Namecoin entities to perform these checks and flag or filter content and users that fail integrity checks. This would allow a users to automatically weed out potential bots and trolls but keep full control of this process themselves, avoiding potential censorship if this task would fall on the platform owners themselves (something governments are pushing for).
We could take this even further and integrate Namecoin ID's in software and hardware devices as well. This could create chains of trust to verify the entire chain of content creation and manipulation to the final content posted on a social platform. Where every entity signs the resulting content. (E.g. camera -> photoshop -> twitter post)
Apart from signing content/messages (PGP style). Namecoin could perhaps also be used for managing identity tokens in a users 'Identity wallet'. Looking into my physical wallet this could include things like credit cards, insurance cards, government issued IDs, membership cards, transportation cards, key cards, etc. This could be done similar to 'colored coins' on Bitcoin. But would have to support some type of smart contract functionality to be useful (e.g. expiring tokens, etc).
I'm not a developer nor a technical writer, but I do think we need to think long and hard about how we can solve digital identity in a way that empowers users to trust and verify the content and identities of the peers we interact with online while also respecting privacy and preventing censorship by external parties. Namecoin could be the better path to building this web of trust, but given the current pace of AI/ML and the willingness by bad actors to weaponize it at scale against users interests we might not have much time. (Apologies for the rant!)

New Listing on CoinEx: $NMC

New Listing on CoinEx: $NMC
Namecoin is an experimental open source technology that provides functions similar to traditional DNS service providers, with features of security, censorship resistance, privacy and speed. NMC was the first fork of Bitcoin and was first to implement merged mining and a decentralized DNS.
CoinEx will list NMC on May 6, 2020 (UTC).

"Having the highest Hashrate doesn't necessarily imply the highest security"

Pardon my ignorance. I'd like to know what backs this statement. I went to look for merged mining and it does look like a winning hand for both (or all) the blockchains involved.
I guess this cannot be answered in a simple way so I'll go right ahead and post in an organised way all the questions that I have in mind:
  1. Why is this statement correct? "It doesn't necessarily imply". Can you specify when it would not be true and why not?
  2. Why is it that Namecoin gathered so much Hashrate when compared to other merged mining coins? Is it just the first mover advantage?
  3. Can any other coin do the same and just "turn on" the possibility to merge-mine with Bitcoin and even testnets and other SHA 256 related chains?
  4. If yes, why don't all coins just free load off the Bitcoin hashrate power?
  5. Why, for a brief period in time has NMC actually surpassed the hashrate of the very Bitcoin? Does this mean that all Bitcoin miners are also helping NMC but not all NMC miners are helping Bitcoin? (I'm aware it goes a bit against the whole definition of merged mining) In this case: given its low price wouldn't these people be better off just mining Bitcoin?
  6. Without trying to sound like much of a Buzzkill, what is the incentive for miners to go out of their way to secure NMC network? With this amount of Hashrate one would think that the difficulty is through the roof although price not so much. What keeps it ticking? I notice that the hashrate goes up with that of Bitcoin's, but I doubt that the awareness does too. Bitcoin's Hashrate has evolved exponentially and so has Namecoin's. But NMC's actual popularity is not really comparable to that of BTC. Why is it that their hashrates seem to go up so tightly correlated? Are all these people merged mining without knowing?
  7. Also, why not just have NMC alltogether and leave BTC behind? The tech is the same but this one also solves the "decentralizing DNS" issue..

Ok, these are my questions if someone is kind enough to read through and answer each. I'm sorry if I'm asking dumb questions. Thanks a lot.

An appeal to the community: Introduce Merge-Mining & switch to SHA256.

BTCP was launched as GPU-friendly coin, with the Equihash algo. Although I appreciate the arguing behind it, I strongly believe we should follow our big brother Bitcoin, and enable merge-mining BTC + BTCP.
With changing circumstances, we need to change our plans. With the current lower than expected price of Bitcoin Private, it is way too cheap to 51%-attack BTCP. In fact, it only costs a few hundred bucks per hour. That's way too cheap to take down a network currently valued at $55M. The current hashrate is atrocious, and in all honesty I'm not expecting it to be much higher any time soon. A changed algo will not magically increase the hashrate 10-fold, especially not with the current price.
This means that the network will remain insecure and susceptible to 51%-attacks. It has happened to Horizen (formerly ZenCash), Bitcoin Gold and Verge in recent months. A few days ago, BTCP was also targeted, though it did not succeed. A successful attempt seems to be a question of time.
By moving to SHA256, Bitcoin Private can take the advantage of Bitcoin's hashrate. In addition to the rebase, this also makes Bitcoin Private even closer to its big brother Bitcoin; the difference being BTCP's focus on Privacy.
