Easter Egg Hunt

Just wondering if no one knows or no one cares about picking up free money anymore.

Quoting this week’s Nxt Newsletter:

A new transaction has been sent to the alias EasterEggs.

Here’s a clue: Twitter handle @OPeasterEggs.

 

Some cared to check @OpEasterEggs and even #OpEasterEgg:


Now, just follow the white rabbit. Find the secret words that unlock the transaction.

tl;dr:

1 JINN asset has been sent as a phased transaction to an account that anyone can access.

Log in to the account using its passphrase.

Unlock the transaction by typing its hashed secret.

Transfer the asset to your own Nxt account.

You have now picked up this week’s Easter egg: 1 Jinn, current value ~1000NXT~160$.

Deadline is Block 1359698.

Need more clues?

In the end of the section about NxtBridge OFFLINE in our latest Nxt Newsletter we wrote:

OOOPS: Did I really expose the passphrase to the demo account in that video? Oh boy. The first who logs in to the account can have the NXT and ARDR in it. There’s also a clue to follow if you log in, which leads to another asset Easter egg!

Few hours later a user had not just emptied the account for NXT and ARDR, but also found that the encrypted Charles Bukowski quote which had been received by the EasterEggs account could be used to open a password-protected file which had recently been uploaded to the Nxt Data Cloud. This revealed 12 random words, the passphrase to an account that held 100 NXTP assets.

Those are long gone now. Congrats to the Nxter that won and who, by the way, surprised us by using the Eastereggs account to cast a vote in Nxter Magazine’s newsletter-poll. – Nice one! 🙂

Adel ICO will begin on May 1 – and be legally compliant

Since the public announcement of Adel on December 06, 2o16, the team behind has been working hard informing people about the project, getting mentions in the media, publishing whitepapers, and even shared their first two Project Proposals by the R&D team.

The Adelphoi token ICO was planned to be kicked off on March 1st, but today, in a press release, Adel’s press contact John McLeod broke the news that the Adel R&D Team has chosen to postpone it for 2 months to get time to first establish a proper legal structure for Adel.

This means that Adel may very well become the first legally compliant ICO. Distributed ledger technology is a new and dynamic sector that is evolving quickly. By establishing a limited liability company in the Isle of Man, along with AML/CTF compliance, Adel makes sure that the Adel community can maintain a secure and long-term viable incubator for blockchain technology innovation. Adel Ecosystem Ltd. will be able to protect both members and address future regulatory requirements as they are introduced.

To me, as potential investor, this is good news, worth a 2 months delay.
Others may disagree and can air their counter opinions in the comments field.

But, we all know it. If cryptocurrency technologies and blockchain ICO’s are to ever gain mainstream adoption, there’s no other way but to leave the grey zone behind, legally register, and comply with all regulatory and legal requirements including KYC/AML policies. I wish Adel good luck with that – many eyes will undoubtedly be on them.

I’m also sure that some hardcore anons and privacy advocates will refrain from investing in Adel due to this, and will stick to other more anonymous investment opportunities on the blockchain. For a project like Adel, this is the only right thing to do. Their mission and visions are simply too big to be accomplished in any other way.

Gabriel Dusil, Co-founder and board member of Adel:

Adel’s vision is to create a decentralized, self-regulated and self-sustaining macroeconomic ecosystem for blockchain innovation with a mission to be a global leader in community-based funding. Adel’s value is in the core principles of its ecosystem. This ecosystem promotes the use of blockchain technology, creating innovative solutions for various industries. By leveraging the expertise of the Board, R&D team, and its community members, Adel establishes a supportive and collaborative environment for state-of-the-art projects.

Travin Keith, member of Nxt Foundation, and Marketing Manager of Adel:

Adel is trying to solve the lack of a platform for blockchain projects that doesn’t just help with launching the project with funds, but also provides support and guidance throughout the whole life of a project. Adel also aims to actively engage its community members in the projects and can also connect the projects with VCs for further funding if necessary.

The Adelphoi token will be initially launched on Nxt’s Asset Exchange and it will act as the fuel for proper operation of Adel. Adel will work with other blockchain solutions as well if they are needed for the projects.


Adel Press Announcement

Adel establishes LLC in the Isle of Man

  • Adel establishes a transparent legal structure
  • One of the first ICOs to comply with Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing legislation (AML/CTF)
  • Preparation of the new legal structure will delay the ICO to 1st May

Adel, a community-powered startup incubator focusing on blockchain technology, (https://www.adelphoi.io/) has decided to create a separate limited liability company called Adel Ecosystem Ltd. in the Isle of Man in order to establish a clear legal structure for Adel Services and the Adel community. The decision was made to set up a clear legal and tax regime in connection with crowdfunding that will fuel blockchain innovation.

The new legal entity will be registered as a designated business with the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority. As such, the entity will follow AML/CTF rules stemming from the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Code 2015. Part of its compliance will include the implementation of customer due diligence, also known as the Know Your Customer (KYC) process. Therefore, participants in crowdfunding will have their contributions protected from any fraudulent activities by anonymous investors.

Gabriel Dusil, Co-Founder and Board member at Adel: We are very excited to be the first ICO to comply with Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing regulations. As distributed ledger technology becomes more accepted by mainstream investors, we hope the legal structure and protection offered by Adel will act as a template for future ICOs. It is our top priority to protect the contributions of our members, protect our staff, and establish a strong brand.

Gabriel further adds: These are positive steps towards maintaining a long-term and stable incubator for blockchain technology, and for legitimizing our ecosystem. Our stance on regulatory compliance will also open our ICO to a much wider audience of interested contributors.

NXTER.ORG update #1

Hello world!

NXTER.ORG is slowly (in crypto time) turning into the community project we hoped for. Nxters are contributing with their news and views, so the overall number of news items, blogposts and tech articles published has been going up, and with this also the number of site visitors, social media connections and email subscribers. So a big thank you to everybody who has contributed to the English and the French NXTER.ORG so far.

Done:

In January we focused on getting some basic ‘long lasting’ content up, Nxt guides and in depth presentations of Nxt’s CORE features, not only because they have been implemented in the NRS Client, but also to show they should be and are being used by 3rd party developers to build innovative and user friendly services on top of our Nxt platform. With the essential guides and articles now in place, we can begin to spend more time on diving into the detail of those 3rd party projects. They are, after all, what will probably drive the wider adoption of Nxt in the future. So, if you have a project built, or in the process of being built, on Nxt, please get in contact so we can help you spread the word.

Also read: http://test.nxter.org/developers

But why?

In addition to the obvious reason for documenting Nxt’s core features, one of our goals for February-March is to translate them and add landing pages in more languages. Each ‘local’ NXTER.ORG site will host easy to follow guides, our main articles about Nxt plus the most important links. This is to give non-English speaking people an access point into Nxt and also make it easier for them to spread the word about Nxt locally. To friends, maybe developers, maybe universities, maybe the press. Each subsite can be turned into a full blown local blog space or magazine (like the English and the French sites), if/when local editors take on the task. For the moment we will not be actively working for the latter, as we are still working hard on building the main site.

Translators

We consider the expansion of Nxt’s outreach very important, so we’ve decided to reward translators of this specific ‘landing page’ content, not with the usual 1/3 of what the original authors were paid, but with 1/2. If you are interested in translating and can do it well, you can read more here.

Join the movement

We welcome anyone who wants to join us in our efforts.

We don’t want to just sit around waiting for NXT to appreciate in price. Neither do we want to confine ourselves to merely being a donation funded promoter of the Nxt platform. We want to share Nxt with the world and at the same time make money which can be shared with everyone who is participating in building Nxt through NXTER.ORG.

NXTER.ORG is an opportunity to showcase Nxt and its ever-growing range of services. We think people should directly benefit from contributing to this promotional experiment. Accordingly, when you make a contribution to NXTER.ORG, profit-sharing NXTP assets are transferred to your account and every month we pay out 70% of NXTER.ORG’s Net profit as NXT dividends to our asset holding contributors.

We welcome anyone who wants to join us and contribute their quality skills to our awareness building community project; bloggers, journalists, graphic designers, web designers, translators, SEO experts, Nxt 3rd party project devs (funded or unfunded), and Nxt businesses. We look forward to working with you, either as employers or in a profit-sharing business relationship.

Make contact either by writing directly to apenzl or Ludom or by using NXTER.ORG.

Yours sincerely,
Arthur Penzl, on behalf of the NXTER.ORG Team
