Seems like namecoind doesn't support the dumpprivkey command.



or pywallet (link on the site above).

These are the only ways I know. Not really comfortable. Also it is probably not possible while namecoind is running.

    Thanks @phelix. It seems that for namecoin, one needs to use a forked version of pywallet github.com/jackjack-jj/pywallet and use the command line parameter --namecoin. – nivs Apr 8 '13 at 7:42
  • Fun fact: you can even share private keys between Bitcoin and Namecoin. Might make a good secret wallet ;) – kermit Apr 8 '13 at 13:48
  • Care to explain? :) – nivs Apr 8 '13 at 15:14
  • Bitcoin and Namecoin private and public keys are exactly the same thing. Only the address generated from the pub key looks a little different. It is possible to generate both address types from a single priv key. Check out the casascius address utility. – kermit Apr 15 '13 at 16:02
