Schedule future bids
Allow users to enter bids even before auctions start, to be automatically submitted when an auction goes live.
Enable claims for reserved domains
Allow Alexa top 100K domain owners to claim their domain through Namebase: Generate the DNS records for them and add their free claim HNS to their wallet via the web UI.
Show more info about a domain reserved
Eg: https://www.namebase.io/domains/piratebay It says Alexa 100k. Would be interesting if it says something like "Reserved for piratebay.red "
Auto-generated parking page
Automatically generate a "parking page" for domains bought on namebase. This may instantly increase the value of names a little bit. If you really want to get technical with it, auto-generate a parking page on namebase.io also for each domain with instructions for how to access the domain without the namebase.io url.
"Make an offer" feature for marketplace
Allow Namers to make offers on other Namers' names
Make pending transfers visible in tx log
Currently if I transfer HNS into my namebase account, there's no visible indication anywhere on namebase that the transaction is pending confirmation or even exists, which leads to wondering whether I used the wrong address etc. Like other exchanges and wallets, namebase should show pending transactions even when they haven't met the confirmation minimum, and then visually change them to show as confirmed appropriately
Tool to move out names to external address
It would give users more freedom to have their name on their own hns address for which they have their private keys. Because at the end of the day, we all here because of decentralized nature of handshake. So please build a tool to transfer names out to an external hns address not belonging to namebase.
As far as growing your company goes... you should offer corporate accounts. Maybe you charge 100 HNS a month, and you manage someone's domains with 24 hour support, enhanced security (not sure how you would do that, partially thinking out loud while I'm typing), and insurance on their domains. (would have to do that through a third party insurance company maybe). Some sort of company offering to protect people from fraud or domain theft. It would look good to those 100,000 Alexa companies for becoming customers.
Display a notice when transactions are filling up or likely to fill up
if NB's system can detect when it's happening/likely to happen, it'd be good to refine the UX with extra warnings about blocks having no room for more tx. maybe just a simple banner at the top of the site or something "current transaction volume may prevent bids from being mined immediately, it's recommended to input bids a few blocks earlier"
Allow domain holders to easily see how many users are watching the name
Would be great to help gauge interest and refine pricing if I could see how many users expressed interest in a given name based on watch list, both in the marketplace listing where i'm contemplating price adjustments and on the 'my domains' page where i'm considering which names to resell.
