Accept Namecoin Payments
Let your customers pay with NMC. Get Euro payouts or convert to Bitcoin.
Namecoin (NMC), is a domain name register that is blockchain-based. This prevents governments, domain name services, servers, or anybody to interfere with your ownership of a domain. The choice, for now, is limited to a ".bit" (dot-bit) domain name, but in the future may include others as well.
The goal behind Namecoin is to create an environment that cannot be censored, manipulated, or illegally obtained by governments. They aim to build enough infrastructure and to combat the possibility of humanity ending up in an Orwellian nightmarish dystopia.
The nature of Namecoin is technical, and if this description caused a curiosity spike in your mind, it is advised to take a look at their FAQ document. The team has spent much time generating this content.

How to accept Namecoin payments on your website?
CoinGate makes it easy to receive customer payments in most popular cryptocurrencies, including Namecoin. To make it simple for merchants, all received payments are automatically settled to EUR/USD or to BTC, depending on your preference.
To integrate our payment gateway on your website, choose either:
- One of CoinGate ready-made integrations for e-commerce content management systems or web billing platforms (like WooCommerce, Magento, PrestaShop, OpenCart, WHMCS and similar)
- Developer API that can be configured for any website and different codebases (e.g. Ruby, PHP, Omnipay, Python, NodeJS...)
- Payment buttons for accepting donations or simple payments (for example, if you only sell one or several products)
To get started with accepting Namecoin as well as Bitcoin, Litecoin and other coins, first, sign up with CoinGate. Then, create API credentials if you are planning to use our e-commerce plugins or the API; if not, go ahead and create your first payment button.
If you wish to keep all your received payments in cryptocurrency (i.e. to receive payouts in Bitcoin), then no verification is usually needed to use CoinGate. For Euro or U.S. Dollar settlements, you will have to pass our simple merchant verification procedure by uploading your business documents and director's ID.
