Nxt supporting the student revolution in Hong Kong

Nxt at the Internet Finance Initiative CEO (IFICS) Global Bitcoin Summit

During the two days (28/29 November) of the IFICS, Global Bitcoin Summit in Hong Kong, at which I was invited to speak, Nxt enjoyed a fantastic opportunity to gain significant exposure; it was the only cryptocurency represented, even the Bitcoin foundation was missing. The summit was aimed at investors, businesses, and consultants. As always, it was full of representatives from various Bitcoin related services, including exchanges and ATMs.

As they had done at the Shanghai Bitcoin Expo in September, OKcoin was trying very hard to gain the best exposure. But it’s not just about the size of the booth. For example, take the China-based Bitcoin exchange, Huobi: they sent maybe just one representative, but the speech given by Wendy Wang (Huobi’s International Business Director) was absolutely amazing and they always prepare very nice slides.

After I had given a small speech at the Bitcoin Expo in Shanghai, I decided to represent Nxt at the Hong Kong IFICS summit in order to follow up with the Asian contacts I had made. And, as things turned out, it was a good idea, because the IFICS organizers were very Nxt friendly; so much so, I was given two opportunities to make presentations. In fact, Roger Ver (Bitcoin Angel Investor) and I were the only delegates who not only gave a speech but who also spoke on the discussion panels.

It meant that the other members of my discussion panel, having had no other exposure, had to deliver a lot of information in the short time available, while I could afford to focus on just a select few topics because most of what I wanted to say had already been presented in the speech I had given earlier.

Nxt was placed in the ‘Innovations in the digital currency’ category, so I decided to go with the simple topic: Nxt Innovations. As well as speaking about Nxt’s innovative technology, I also focused on the innovations taking place in our community. In particular I wanted to share my excitement regarding the working Starfish: Nxt’s decentralized ecosystem. The information in the speech came from many sources, not just the Nxt wiki, but also all the ideas I had spent weeks getting from the community to present at the conference.

I carried out this information gathering exercise via a private questionnaire for businesses and by opening new threads on the Nxt forum in order to get feedback from Nxters. So, while I was speaking at the conference about certain topics, I was able to put up slides quoting the real opinions about those topics made by Nxters. I showed a lot of pictures as part of my presentation – including infographics, a nice comparison of the Nxt mining rig (raspberri pi) and a picture of Bitcoin’s ASIC factory after the big fire. I even showed the pictures of Come-from-Beyond’s family which CFB had published.

I am not a native English speaker, but neither of course was the Chinese audience, so the speech was written in simple language, but the information in it was based on long-term research. As already mentioned, I have invested a lot of time getting all the information I needed, for example, the number of Nxt commits in the source code. I have been studying Nxt since January, when I was working on my ‘Nxt myth’ study. Since then I have been continuing with my research by formulating some new questions and trying to figure out the answers.

On the second day of the conference, I made the first presentation of my discussion panel. Initially there were about 80 people in the room. Many others came in while the presentations were being made. Half of the audience consisted of young cryptocurrency fans and the other half were businessmen, investors, speakers, and sponsors. As one of the invited speakers, I was able to attend both of the lunches and also the VIP cocktail dinner party. This is where a lot of contact building takes place, so it was very important for me to be there. And of course, we didn’t just speak about Bitcoin.

I took every opportunity of introducing Nxt and SuperNET. I think SuperNET is something so new and different that it has the best chance of capturing people’s attention. Even on the discussion panel, I spent more time talking about SuperNET than I did about Nxt AE and third party services, such as Coinomat, Nxt2pay…

During the event I gave out quite a large number of business cards, maybe 30-40. I was approaching people or they were just running into me. My question was always the same – what can Nxt do for you to accept it in your business? And, if it wasn’t a business, I would simply ask: Have you heard of Nxt? In the months leading up to the conference I had been involved in many internet discussions with lots of anti-Nxters thereby, in effect, training myself to deal with any troll type questions that might get asked at conferences. I had even discredited some of the troll-ideas in my speech in order to dispose of them in advance of any questions. But, as I have discovered in previous conferences, the people you meet are not only reasonable and fair-minded, many of them already know about Nxt and have nothing against it. That said, some of them are old school Bitcoiners, so here you need to speak to their friends and let the magic work…

The venue of the Summit was in the Cyberport, which is quite some distance from Hong Kong’s urban areas; even so the commute only took an hour, included searching for bus stops. It’s easy to travel in Hong Kong if you use Google maps, but sometimes it takes a lot of time to get a GPS signal. On one occasion I asked a policeman for directions, he used his mobile phone to search for the name of the street. 😀 The Cyberport’s hotel, where the delegates were invited to stay, was too expensive for poor Salsa, so I chose a 10x cheaper accommodation in a 2x2m room in Kowloon. But the food was included in my VIP ticket, so I could at least enjoy many luxurious delicacies.

Nxt and the student revolution in Hong Kong

And what about Nxt supporting the student revolution in Hong Kong? Each day after the conference business was over, I visited the demonstration camps. These are situated in a few streets near Admiralty, the Central Government Complex, and have been occupied by students for months. Actually a battle of Admiralty happened whilst I was at the second demonstration in Kowloon. The ‘Admiralty camp’ consists of hundreds of students; it’s become, in effect, their home and you can see them carrying on their daily lives: eating, learning, doing homework, drawing, preparing transparencies, providing information.

This camp is a very interesting place and something which you cannot see anywhere else. You can see many tourists passing by, making photos or selfies, there’s even a press camp… and the Lennon wall. I was talking to many students and I was proud of them for knowing about the Lennon wall in Prague (which a few weeks ago was destroyed but then restarted!) and for also knowing about a similar revolution in 1989, when we, the Soviet union countries, successfully demonstrated for democracy.

The Lennon Wall

The Lennon wall in Hong Kong is covered in paper messages, mostly in Chinese, supporting the Hong Kong revolution. These temporary means of communication are a fascinating topic with a long history; for example, in Shanghai, I was showing people pictures of the paper messages aimed at the Soviet army’s occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968, as an example of anonymous communication. In Hong Kong, the students were also using chalk to make inscriptions. They have a symbol – a yellow umbrella, which can now be seen all over the place…

‘Pravda vítězí’ – ‘The truth wins’

At the end of the first day of the Hong Kong conference I placed a Czech symbol of Václav Havel’s fight for democracy: ‘Pravda vítězí’ – ‘The truth wins’ –  on the Lennon wall. This is a slogan which also appeared on our first postage stamp issued after the revolution. The idea of placing a message about Nxt on the Lennon wall came to me a little bit later, so when I returned to the Lennon wall for the second time, I left a Nxt message there too. It was a slogan that I remember from our site – ‘Nxt, democratizing the future’.

Nxt’s ideas fit perfectly into these demonstrations, because that’s what we are all doing: simply fighting for our rights, our freedom, for democracy. Although I took hundreds of photos of the demonstration camp, it wasn’t enough to satisfy my journalistic and freedom-loving instincts. So, in the evening, having found the Kowloon’s demonstrators, I joined them as a photographer.

Kowloon’s demonstrations

Kowloon’s demonstrations were very peaceful and, comprising around 1000 people, relatively small in scale; the demonstrators, sometimes splitting up into a few groups, just walked around the same few blocks. I was hoping that this would be a good opportunity for me to explore the area, but because we were going around in circles I only ever saw the same few streets. The Kowloon demonstrations were uncoordinated and therefore didn’t have much of an impact. Students, joined by many tourists and the press, went to the left, then to the right, then back, crossed the street, sometimes stopping for a few minutes.

The crowd was blocking the pavement, but it was always possible for other people to get through. Policemen were mostly just taking care of the traffic, so when there was a green light they let us cross the street and when there was a red, they blocked us. Once, when the crowd was blocking a bus, the police were a little more active, holding hands and pushing the crowd back onto the pavement. On another occasion, when someone was injured, the situation became rather more intense. It was a signal for radical protesters to start shouting and making gestures, for policemen to protect the wounded person and for the press to take hundreds of photos a minute.

In the TV news reports you can see the battle of Admiralty, where bricks were thrown and pepper spray had to be used. At the Kowloon demonstration I joined one local Bitcoiner and we were checking the situation online via social networks. In the TV reports you can see a policeman holding a red flag. The police operate according to a set of rules, which is good, especially for tourists and the occasional photographer like me, enabling us to escape into safety. Each policeman always carried three flags of different colours. I myself never saw them deployed, because the demonstrations I attended were peaceful, but in the TV reports you can see them being shown. The flags have different meanings according to their colour, so the first flag is just a warning:  ‘Police cordon, do not cross’.  The second means: ‘Stop charging or we use force’. And the last flag means ‘Disperse’. This is when you really should run away, put on your mask or start recording because the videos recorded in these circumstances are the ones that will appear on TV.

I don’t want to make this article over long, so I’ll conclude my account of what I witnessed with this: when you see on the TV or read in the newspaper that ‘the revolution has escalated’, what it actually means is that after many boring hours of nothing much happening, except for lots of verbal warnings, suddenly flags start being shown and the bulk of the crowd begins to disperse, leaving behind just a few radical protesters to fight with the police. Even on the videos showing the worst of the confrontations you can still see many reporters in the middle of the fight.

Although I was only a simple observer, I became a silent member of the demonstration. I didn’t shout “Kowloon” or any of the Chinese slogans shouted by the ‘one-minute-leaders’ which were then repeated by the demonstrators, nor did I raise a hand in the Hunger-games style. However, although I didn’t fully adopt the protest mentality, I still became one of the demonstrators and, for a while, was even leading them.

PS: I didn’t spend much time doing anthropological research while I was there, but I would suggest to anyone studying revolutions to visit this place, talk to people, talk to students (oral history), digitalize all written (temporary) sources and to record the students’ gestures during the demonstrations.

CfB:

BCNext wrote the whitepaper in Java language. Now we r translating it to plain English. So we r working on it right now, time to move from geeks to academics.

https://nxtforum.org/nxt-whitepaper/

Monetary System

CfB:

Monetary System allows any user/group to create a currency on top of Nxt platform. One of the currency types is a PoW currency. The supply will be minted by using PoW and secured by using Nxt PoS.

PS: Such PoW correncies can migrate to their own blockchain after the bootstrapping phase. This provides protection for currencies that r being attacked before they get a big community.

I think it should be noted that NXT protects PoW currencies and their price, so the price can’t go to zero.

Nxt Café

nxtcafecut

WHAT is this??? And who is Lee?

Lee (TXTCoinsNow):

My father started the place in 1988. He died of cancer few years ago and my mother tried to run it but she also was diagnosed with a terminal illness so lasted 1 year after.

Its basically been shut but the defacto on the level 1 rating is based on the guy turning up when southern water was pumping the blocked drains and there was a fire next door which left the cafe having to have fire doors etc put in they come when my brother in law was working on the place and the cafe was not open even. [referring to reviews like THIS]

Obviously it wont make any mega rich over night but a great novelty and excellent point of location for NXT Coin I already spoke to Just Eat this morning they liked the idea of it as people do ask if any places can take crypto and they have asked me to go to there head office.

It already had some media: HERE.

Well to just take it further they want a follow up to a grand opening where people are invited down “ITV and BBC could well be there to cover it”. I know 1 of the MP’s around here I could get him on my speed dial and have him here to do the opening and invite local business’s which will give massive amounts of media as the Local Area is involved.

Payexpo 2014

cointropolis

Justabit:

Here’s a random conversation :

John “The price is 1000 NXT to issue the asset”

Hedge Fund Manager “Only $10,000 for the entire platform”

John “No, the platform is free.. there is no licensing. You just need to spend a 1000 NXT to issue the asset”

Hedge Fund Manager “How much is that?”

John “About $70”

Hedge Fund Manager “(real loud laugh) What’s wrong with it?”

You can imagine how that one trails off.  Try explaining crowd funding plane tickets and conference booth to these guys, minds were seriously blown. The response was sick…just unbelievable life changing conversations. People were polite but had a very direct message to us:

What are you waiting for? You have the platform, you don’t have the image problems of Bitcoin, you have people that work for donations.. wtf. Why haven’t you approached the financial markets before, you’re messing around with low volume crap.

I know that my time is now best spent approaching pushing NXT in real world meetings.

Gocoin NXT

GoCoin announced, that they will integrate NXT in their payment solution.

Justabit:

CoinTropolis members have been talking with GoCoin fairly regularly since the Bitcoin Miami event. It was important for us to outline a real plan for how NXT could enhance their portfolio. It was a lot of follow-ups, however, the end result was well worth the effort. We look forward to getting NXT fully integrated and going after merchants worldwide.

Merchants will be able to integrate NXT via the GoCoin plugin into shopping carts such as PrestaShop, Opencart, ZenCart, Magento, WooCommerce, VirtueMart, Ubercart and more.

jl777

This is more significant than when BTER started trading NXT. The reason is every silly altcoin gets on some exchange, not such a big deal to be on an exchange. How many coins are integrated into VC backed payment processors? BTC, LTC, DOGE and NXT. maybe PPC, so now NXT has full gen1 features.

PayExpo 2015?

Justabit:

Bitcoin Foundation wanted to be the PayExpo crypto sponsor for 2015. I don’t want to start any drama with those guys, but there’s certainly some bad blood with NXT watering down the Bitcoin message. How dare we be so successful.  Btw, they don’t have the option. Lee signed a contract which states that we have 3 1/2 weeks to decide if we want to come back.  If we do, they are not allowed to be a crypto sponsor.

Big plans from PayExpo in 2015 for crypto, thanks to the response that NXT received.  People were generally thankful we were there to explain what exactly we do and how it can help support their initiatives.  It was so weird to hear ‘Thank you so much for joining PayExpo’ from other sponsors.

The PayExpo went well, seems to be consensus. The hack is another thing. More about that next week.

NxtHaus

NxtHaus is a Nxt<->Fiat trading platform.

nxthaus

domsch:

We’re in Alpha testing of NxtHaus. We changed direction and instead of having the most focus on Buying and Selling Nxt, we want to be more like the Coinbase of Nxt. The new homepage should be ready and implemented next week, the dashboard within 2 weeks.

Because NxtHaus’ focus is on easy to use we can not include sophisticated trading solutions for our day traders. Because of that we will create a sophisticated trading desk together with Margin in a Joint Venture. Additionally, we will obviously be included in the LeonArdo software. Beta testing for LeonArdo will start soon.

We are also working on a POS Terminal. Thanks to the progress on Isle of Man we were able to work on even more: We will become an actual payment processor similar to Bitpay, GoPay and the likes. In the coming month we will start doing local beta testing for the POS Terminal and the Payment Processor (A merchant gets paid in Bitcoin/Nxt and we then automatically convert it into Fiat (obviously only if the merchant doesn’t want to keep the crypto currencies).

Since November I’ve been in touch with a great entrepreneur from the US. He is running a Startup focused on delivering/using credit cards. Obviously we want to add such an option to our users and make it possible to pay locally at any shop with the credit card or withdraw cash at an ATM. This is still work in progress as it is still very difficult to get banking in the US (which is required for this). But we are working on a Plan B that would handle this in a P2P fashion.

Anon136

wow. can you imagine if a legit nxt credit card came before a legit bitcoin credit card.

Bithaus

domsch:

The very first Nxt Crypto Valley on Isle of Man is here!

The goal is it to realize the creation of a legal DAC, which means that companies that issue shares on the Asset Exchange can do so legally. We’re also working on implementing the idea of a “Safe Harbor” (as mentioned  during the New York Bitcoin Hearing): companies that would normally require a license to operate will be given a “trial” where they can prove themselves and their abilities to operate. This means that these companies will be able to operate right off the bat without having to worry that bureaucracy will kill their innovation.

On Isle of Man we will work closely together with the regulators and politicians, that means that we are taking a proactive stance in the way this industry will be regulated. We are sort of creating our own regulatory framework and thus make it possible for no regulator to cripple our innovations.

Trustless online wallet

mynxtwall

abuelau:

myNXT will now be trustless and open source

We are happy to announce that starting on the 16th/June the myNXT.info Online Wallet (https://wallet.mynxt.info) will become a trustless wallet, and the client-side code will be open-sourced so anyone can review it.

This will add an extra layer of security to our users, and we hope the extra level of trust will help boost the online wallet adoption by both existing Nxters that were hesitant to use the wallet before, and also (and most importantly), will help encourage new people to join Nxt.

With this work, the myNXT Online Wallet becomes an on-blockchain, client-side trustless wallet, which is very similar to the leading Bitcoin online wallet Blockchain.info. We will also be adding a backup functionality so that our users can easily backup their wallet and even migrate to other Nxt clients if they choose to.

https://wallet.mynxt.info is usable as an online wallet for mobiles too.

Nxt Android Wallet

iNxt wallet

Nxt Community has been pushing for weeks now to get dev’s coding a functioning native mobile wallet. The Nxt corporate design has been in place from Ideenfrische for what feels like ages, but NOW things are moving!

marcus03 [ANN]:

A fully functional, open-source Android NXT wallet. Transaction signing done client-side with the Android app connecting to “well-known” public NRS server without sending account secrets over the network. Fund raising has started and will run between June 13th to July 13th 2014 (or shorter).

Buy as many assets as you want to fund in NXT. As long as the fund raising is running you can step back from funding by transfering the assets back to the issuer account. Marcus03 will then return your NXT. If he decides the project is well funded, the client will be created. If Marcus03 decides the project is not well funded after a month, he will put up a buy order at 1 NXT so that everyone is free to sell the asset against this with minimal loss (2 NXT in transaction fees).

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Nxt AT

All unit tests are done!

CIYAM:

This is a milestone.

EXT_FUN tests have been published and I’ll close the task off as soon as blockchain.info is working properly again (keeps timing out trying to check the BTC balance with it at the moment).

http://ciyam.org/open/?cmd=view&data=20140220164742097000&ident=M100V137&chksum=065ecf7d

If you buy NxtAT Assets, you are helping the project as well as hopefully getting something in return when it’s completed.

Nxt AT (Automated Transactions) will provide Nxt with the ability to create a special type of transaction that contains “Turing complete” byte code which will be executed by a byte code interpreter built into the NRS. The addition of such transactions will allow for many types of Nxt blockchain applications ranging from games of chance to ensuring that NXT savings will not be lost forever.

Nodecoin

jl777:

Remember nodecoin?

Now that NXTservices will be running on mainnet I was going to enable nodecoin mining by default for those that run NXTservices. Since there is a fixed number of nodecoins per block, the fewer people that are testing NXTservices, the more nodecoins each person testing will get.

Even though NXTservices is in beta, these are the real nodecoins.
Please no complaints about all the nodecoin whales who will be earning them by helping test NXTservices (and they also help the NXT network at the same time)

Nodecoin was created as an incentive for running Nxt nodes.

NxtForex

jl777:

It seems that MGW beta is working better than I expected so I can now finalize InstantDEX and start the great sucking of trade volumes from all the centralized exchanges. My plans for InstantDEX are much bigger than just crypto trading, that is why NXTforex for largest trading market of all and also in the works are trading support for all the other major market types.

Trading markets will be the easiest to shift into NXT once the blockdelay factor is eliminated. Since that alone is probably a bit more than 1% of GDP, it will be a very good start. The other part is high growth NXT based operating assets, along with a family of mutual fund type of assets to allow people to select whatever field/risk level they are comfortable with. Finance and Tech are the key industries. the former because, well, its about money and the latter because nothing can grow as fast as Tech companies.

Secure Asset Exchange

SAE:

Secure Asset Exchange (http://www.secureae.com/) is focused on enabling the web-based creation, purchase and resale of “Trustworthy Decentralized Assets” that will exist wholly on Nxt’s innovative Decentralized Asset Exchange infrastructure. Our goal is to make Nxt’s Decentralized Asset Exchange easily usable.

If successful, SAE will substantially increase transaction volume through the Nxt network by reducing the “friction” investors must currently overcome to access Nxt decentralized asset.

We hope that the integration helps the promotion of NXT, such services as withdrawal to bank cards (which will be launched immediately) and SEPA transfers (we plan to launch them in July) definitely should be of interest to the community.

I approved 50.000 NXT from NXTcommunityfunds as I think this is a nice service for NXT to have. Every little bit counts, so even if it is just 10 NXT, lets get a bit of the coinomat assset. They will be giving out dividends on all of their business and if things go well, we might even make a bit of money, but I view this more as a way to get an operating crypto company into NXT. they also support OKpay, EGOpay and perfectmoney. I never quite understood what those companies did, but if you use them this would be added bonus.

Run a node

EvilDave (Infrastructure Committee):

The core of NXT is good code running on a solid, secure, widely spread and de-centralised network, and while the whole community can’t help with coding (except by funding, hint!), the whole community can help with setting up and running the NXTwork. We need to make sure that NXT can deliver on our promises.

Running a node isn’t all that tricky, so check this section out:

BCNext’s purpose

Come-From-Beyond:

I think it’s a good idea to explain why Nxt was created. (…)

Nxt is a by-product and its main purpose is to prepare the ground for the main project of BCNext. Bitcoin and its clones seem to stop progressing, Nxt is supposed to fix this issue. Nxt is more a platform than just a currency and this is not coz its technical implementation allows to easily add new features. “Platform” should be read as “stepping stone” to qualitative changes in the global society.
So, to make it clear, BCNext’s goal was to create something intermediate, a bridge to the next stage of human society progress. For the others Nxt may, of coz, have another purpose…
While the real identity of BCNext will never be revealed I think it won’t harm him if I reveal that “BCNext” is derived from Bitcoin — Next

Quote of the week

Justabit:

At Bitcoin Conferences, we spend a lot of time positioning ourselves as an up and comer to Bitcoin. I’ve been ‘scowled’ a few times for approaching it that way. We hurt the brand when we do that and make it more difficult for interested parties to convince their clients to invest.  We are NXT.

We have an amazing tech, clean imagine and business professionals that are willing to interface between development and investment. We get stuck in our crypto bubble (me included) we forget to target the bigger markets. The reception was better than we could have ever imagine, it was really that strong. We took back some painful lessons that we’ll share as soon as we find a moment.

I dont believe our community really understands the impact PayExpo had on our exposure to serious financial markets. I’m too tired to give a fk.. at another after party until 2am with people that fart more than my 10 year salary. We waste a lot of time, including myself, on small pond crypto activities.. we need to start networking with people outside our sector.

I received a lot of great advice that I don’t think will be received well in the community. I know my focus needs to shift to 1on1 meetings… as frequently as humanly possible. Exhausted, broken English… I wanted to get down a few thoughts before crashing.

Words of wisdom of the week

ShortNXT:

IMO, the best (probably only) way for a crypto to achieve meaningful price stability (and thus meaningful mainstream usage) is the emergence of a significant web of products/services not just purchasable with that currency, but denominated in that currency.  In other words, you can currently buy something IRL with BTC, but the price in BTC is calculated at the time of purchase in almost all cases, in reference to USD or another fiat.  As long as that remains the case, the value of a unit of crypto will remain untethered and simply be whatever you think you can get for it tomorrow (i.e. it remains a purely speculative instrument, forever prone to bubbles and crashes).  I don’t worry about the price at which I can sell dollars on an exchange tomorrow because I know that dollar will still buy a can of soda, 20% of a sandwich, 10% of a movie ticket, etc.  No one in their right mind would enter into a long-term contract denominated in crypto with that status quo, because there’s no way to reliably gauge what the value will be in a week, month, or a year.

I think this is one of the greatest strengths of the asset exchange.  By having a diverse range of products/services/instruments all denominated in the underlying currency itself, it should begin to lend more and more stability to NXT because those prices are sticky.  Now, if NXT doubles tomorrow, it would be rational for AE traders to bid down the price of certain assets, and they can indeed do this, so the prices are not *completely* sticky, but it does provide some inertia.

The AE ecosystem isn’t yet robust enough (or widely enough known), but in time, it should serve as its own “ankle weights” on the price of NXT, significantly limiting purely speculative swings of typical crypto-magnitude.

This will not only be unique among cryptocurrencies, but it will be a purely market-driven approach that doesn’t require central planning, which seems to me to be its greatest appeal.  As soon as we start talking about manipulating the price for the good of the community (and artificially tamping down volatility is manipulation), bad things are sure to follow, however benign the intentions.

Nxt at Bitcoin 2014 (2)

PART 2

bitcoin2014_nxt

So what took place in the Nxt booth on this beautiful day in crypto wonderland?

Damelon
Today at 06:23:03 pm:

The Conference was terrific! Such a good vibe all over.
It’s clear that crypto is coming out of the woodwork and gaining approval and interest.

ALL the people we met were genuinely interested, asked insightful questions about the issues important to them and all people took us seriously as a system.
We were cordially received and we are most definitely on the map. People don’t see us as “just an alt” anymore.

Just a quick tally of the people I know we have talked with and received contact details from:

cards

* BTCChina, Bobby Lee * GoCoin * Netiago * BTChip * Bitcoin Foundation * Elliptic * ZipZap * Mercadobitcoin * Rublon * OLS-Systems * Virtex * Coinproz * Happycoins * Hash.bg * Bitfury * Omidyar Network * Egopay * Tedd Marketing * Woodwallets * PRISMcide * Ripple Labs * Shopelia * CoinTerra * JafCapital * Strevus * BitFin * MasterCoin * Lamassu ATM * Coinbase, Charlie Lee * CryptoWerks * MarginSoftware * Bitcoin Solutions Ltd. * yBitcoin * Meni Rosenfeld * Goobit.se * Pwc.com * BitcoinThing * Alitin * Primeventures * BNP Paribas * Bitcoindoc * Norton Rose * Fulbright * Commonwealth Bank of Australia * Riddle Williams Attorneys …

From the Live Updates:

GoCoin. Nice guys and some very exciting things going on here. I’ll leave the rest with Justabit as he is lead contact here.

– chanc3r met with the CEO of ZipZap. BIG interest there. We expect some very exciting developments here in the medium future here.

– Met with Happycoins on the smoking boulevard. They are one of the leading BTC – Fiat companies in Europe. They will be a good contact with connections in banking, legal and governments here. Contact lives in NL, so it will be easy to keep in contact and keep each other informed.

– Also managed, with a lot of running to press a card and receive a card from Bobby Lee of BTCChina. He was very busy, but I’ll follow him up after the Conference.

Lastly, chanc3r had a good developers conversation with Ripple Labs who were very impressed with our client and also were amazed by the support from our community. Good professional contacts :)

Talked with the PriceWaterhouseCooper guy, who turned out to be a poker game and I mentioned Ola’s decentralised poker game to. He wrote down the details and is on an iGame panel later, so I am hoping for a mention there :)

I just had a 30 minute talk with Meni Rosenfeld about this [Nxt unfinished whitepaper] and he has given me some things that he would need to actually take Nxt serious at this level. If he has time, he has said that he might be willing to consult. :)  I will get back on this later.

Other:

– We are now being approached by Venture Capitalists.
– We have an investor for the amount of $ 250,000. chanc3r will take lead in this.
– We have been invited to a local affair here in NL, which might be a good test case for our local meet ups initiative and have a Nxt meet. The meet is in Arnhem.

Still bucketloads of interest here and it’s not diminishing.

Damelon
Today at 06:23:03 pm:

After resting, we will go over all contacts collected, sort and prioritise follow ups and connect people to other people within the community.

I want to thank EvilDave, chanc3r, l8orre, Berzerk and coretechs for their enthousiams, input, voices, hard work and dedication. You guys are ACE and a joy to work with! Thís is how a team works! Also props for your enthousiastic support from the forums, people!

Also: NICE PRICE RISE!

Now, I am going to sit behind my screen, sip coffee, eat pizza and have a very content evening!

Analysis and stories will follow tomorrow.

Just want to share this last nugget:

Charlie Lee came by and got a 15 minute presentation by chanc3r, l8orre and EvilDave!

EvilDave
Today at 07:12:21 pm:

Just got to add, as a little story, that the above was our second meet with Charlie Lee, the first one was when me and Damelon were doing a circuit of the booths and dropped in on Coinbase…we started our pitch to this very quiet dude, who listened very carefully and then interrupted us with the question:

“Do you know who I am?”

Me and D sort of looked at each other, I try to read the dudes badge, but it’s turned around. I think of bullshitting for a second or two, but then both of us simply say “No” simultaeneously. The quiet dude hands us both cards and says: “I’m Charlie Lee, I invented Litecoin”

Ooooppsss….crypto geniuses, me and Damelon.

But we had really excellent contact with him, probably spent an hour in total over two days, discussing Coinbase and NXT with him.

More stories to come……theres so much to cover,
It’ll take much of the next couple of days just to sort out what to do with all of our contacts…..but you guys need to know: NXT is a serious player now. We are seen as pretty much an equal to Ripple and Ethereum, by many of the people who matter in the crypto world.

@JustaBit: your conference guide is pretty much perfect.
And you’ve been an invaluable support to us in the last few days of lead up to the conference. A sort of steadying hand to show us the right path.
I’ve always wanted to keep you (+Cointropolis in general) very much on-board with NXT and this conference has just driven that point home.

I also want to to say that we had an excellent team that simply formed a really powerful unit right from the start:
Me on chief bullshitter and intro duties, Damelon as a slightly more low-key pitch man and contact organiser, l8orre answering the tech questions, chanc3r quietly and very competently manning the booth, Berzerk running around carding and Twittering like a good ‘un, andcoretechs just turning up and helping out with his mad pitching skillz.

A really mixed team, all with different strengths and abilities, but the guys turned into the NXT dream team as soon as the conf. kicked off.

Gotta repeat that! Thank you so much for your great effort!

Nxt at Bitcoin 2014

PART 1

bitcoin2014_nxt

bitcoin2014.com:

Bitcoin 2014 is the annual international forum, exhibition and networking conference organised by the Bitcoin Foundation for the fintech industry. It’s where investors, technologists, regulators, executives, entrepreneurs, developers, and policymakers gather to collectively shape the future of cryptographic money worldwide.

Join us in Amsterdam, one of the most prolific fintech hubs in Europe, to get a glimpse into the future and the opportunity to be a part of building the digital economy.

Let’s hear it from the horses’ mouths.

How did the representatives of the Nxt Community feel after a long exhausting day in Bitcoinland?

Damelon
Today at 09:04:19 pm:

I was GREAT!

We have had so much attention.

The day started brilliantly, as Patrick Byrne mentioned Nxt in his keynote speech as one of the projects he finds interesting.

This led to a wave of people coming to check out to see that Nxt was.

We basically were with 6 people (we met user coretechs at the Conference and he was a brilliant pitcher for us and helped out brilliantly: thank you!) and were occupied most of the time.

People came from all walks: we talked to bankers who were interested in the AE, we talked to lawyers interested in developing a legal structure for AE trading, we met normal users, business owners, the generally interested, wallet builders, 2nd Gen collegues (Ripple and Mastercoin), Bitcoin fans etc. etc.

We are definitely on the frigging map! Both Dave and I are losing our voices, and we japped our mouths off. l8orre and chanc3r managed the more technical questions, which was needed, because some people really wanted the nitty gritty where I would have just stood slack-jawed if we wouldn’t have had real experts with us. All conference teams should have a dev with them, it’s invaluable and you will be taken much more seriously!

Berzerk has been doing rounds all day just making introductions and gathering cards and opening up contacts that we afterwards can follow up. I am very happy that someone actually can work in a “serving” but necessary role. Big props for Berzerk there.

Dave managed to combine his volunteer organising tasks with easily chatting with people and getting valuable contacts. We both took the part of basically telling the “story of Nxt” over and over again, so people could grasp that we were new: new code, new blockchain, not a coin but a system, and no, we do not have a chairman, no HQ, we work as a community!

We have created loads of follow up opportunities today and we still have a huge wishlist of contacts to visit tomorrow! It’s one of those rare things to get out of a full conference day being pumped instead of tired because YOU have to chase people! Most people came to US!

Going to relax a bit now, put my tower of business cards in a safe place and prepare for tomorrow. smiley.gif

Guys/girls/things:

On behalf of the Conf. Crew, I’d like to apologise for the lousy updates here.

The good news is that we can’t update because the NXT booth has been completely overwhelmed with people for pretty much the entire day, It’s very difficult to describe the amazingly positive buzz thats happening here with NXT: it seems as if everyone here is interested in NXT in some way.

The buzz is not only about NXT, btw, the whole conference is totally optimistic about the future of crypto, Bitcoin and alts. Its a very powerful feeling.

Couple of random things: the RaspPi Solar is a brilliant conversation piece, all the tech dudes love it. Myself and Bas have developed a charging system demo for the solar panel…. as you lift it up towards the overhead lights, the charging boards LEDs start to flash as the current goes up. i think we have that on video, to be posted in a day or so….

Legal aspoects of 2nd generation features (and the legal side of crypto in general) is a recurring theme in teh conversations we’re having. We really need to think very carefully about what we are doing with the AE, for example. Luckily we made some very good legal contacts: Norton Rose Fulbright are the law firm in crypto, and we’ve had about 3 sessions with the guy who is heading up their crypto point group. Had some other lawyers as well….

We will work up a full list of contacts (with proper notes on each) when the conf is over, Sat is the last day.

As i said earlier, we are so busy, that any keyboard time at the booth means ignoring interested people. We’ve had 3-5 NXT guys on the booth all day, and I can remember only a couple of periods of a minute or 3 with no-one actually deep in a conversation with an interested attendee.

I went on a mission to annoy all the mining-rig companies today, invite them over to see the RPS, and all I got where mostly NXT-positive miners

A quote from one ASICS guy: ‘I’m a miner by day, NXT investor by night’ No-one was unfriendly (and i was annoying), the worst response I got was just not very interested. If you can’t get miners to hate on NXT, what is the world coming to?

Oy. yeah, i’ve lost count of the number of people here who hold some (or a lot of) NXT…..I’d guess that 10% have some NXT holdings. And this is the serious end of the Bitcoin world……

Bitpay gave me some stuffed toys for my kids, and said very firmly that they where NOT going to use anything other than Bitcoin for the forseeable future.

They get 10,000 mails per day (maybe I’m exagerating) from alt-coin fanbois requesting their fave alt be used by Bitpay. So I suggest that we simply leave them be for a while, maybe check at the end of the year how they feel.

Spoke to 2 exchanges who may want to list NXT, one with a dollar/crypto gateway. Might need help with integration, but they’re not asking for bribes….

This is just a sample, there’s so much more good stuff to share with you lot, but I’ve got to be up early in the AM.

(BTW: last time I saw Berzerk, Damelon, L8orre and Chanc3er, they were heading off to a local bar with a posse of lawyers……..much free legal advice coming up)

I’ll try to post some pics in a bit before I hit my bed.

Berlin Conference

Inside Bitcoins Conference

written by Salsacz.

Bitcoin conf is like a scifi convention with business cards and almost without women. All of them are just nerds in a different stadium of age or wealth. I had to spend 12 hours in 11 buses to get from South Bohemia to Berlin, but all was OK, now snow, so no complications. Me (salsacz), l8rrie and Bitventurere bought network passes, so we could talk business at the conf  hall, while admiral.fu, our sponsor who got t-shirts for us, flew from Sweden and bought a ticket for sessions. I brought business cards, they were essential, + stickers and infographic. It was also useful, some people wanted to talk about myths… But there was no problem to talk about PoS distribution, all Bitcoin lovers now know PoW is not perfect. Bitventurer (Hamburk) brought flyers and one surprise and l8rrie (local), it was our secret weapon, a developer of Asset exchange with very fluent english and native german was very useful 🙂 Btw I was buying not only a conf ticket, but also a hotel by Bitcoins, right before the crash, so I was lucky to sell all my Bitcoins 😀

The job of Nxt conf ambassador is very exhausting, you spend all day by talking about Nxt with tenths of guys. So your legs suffer, your voice and if you are not using your native language, the brain is tired too. So after first day I even didn’t have any dinner, I just passed after I came to the hotel room. It is very different than homeoffice and such jobs should be paid by gold 😀 Especially if you are also dealing with real business and need to decide how much you can spend on bribes for conference organisators. So we gave away one Nxt t-shirt. And little more.

What were the hot topics?
1.   You can build new coins on top of Nxt. We would really like to have some application for that, so you can create a new coin by clicking at one button
2.   Green energy
3.   100% Proof of stake
4.   Zerocoin protocol, Asset exchange
5.   Decentralized apps – twitter, facebook, email, storage, all decentralized and built on top of the Nxt
6.   Decentralized leadership and community
7.   Blockchain shrinking
8.   Positives over Ethereum
9.   DACs, Smart contracts, Lego platform from Ethereum
10.   Decentralized Games, Poker

Which coins were at the conference?
–   Bitcoin – but only some miners..
–   Mastercoin – Mastercoin guys are very kind. We had nice chats, it looks like they are little disappointed with their situation. They have some plans to the future, but right now they even don’t advise to use it. So no competition, but very friendly guys
–   Nxt – 4 ambassadors + 1 guy from the topic, about 2 holders and 10 potential buyers, maybe more. Tons of people talked about buying Nxt so they could catch the train 🙂
How many naked ladies attended a convention?
– 0
I had a funny talk with a guy from Iceland mining company. But he didn’t know it. He was excited as he could answer my questions, but inside me I was rofling how screwed Bitcoins are thanks to this centralized machine. It is based on unfair pow mining that is much cheaper on Iceland. So it will become centralized. Another thing is, you can buy 1 ghash for a year for 8 Dollars. So it is now similar to Nxt. Buying their gigahashes is a proof of stake system, however leading to the centralization.

There weren’t a lot of journalists. But thanks to RT we got a nice attention on TV. A 4 minutes long spot about Bitcoins and Bitcoin conference was on air every hour in the news on RT. The spot from the conf was quite short and then with a little interview with some guy, but then the moderator went to the Bitcoin bar. I was quite surprised how sofisticated, informed and well instroduced were Bitcoins, however there was no place for altcoins or Nxt. Even the interview with BTC China guy wasn’t chosen.

The most interesting guy was probably the CEO from Cryptoventures, an experienced manager, who was born in Italy and the lived in Argentina, Spain and… London? L8rrie will surely provide much detailed info about discussed stuff. Nxt’s altcoins will become a currency in African states and in Casinos. This guy will help provide contacts. We need to provide an easy platform for creating and mainteaning such coins. So the new topic for Nxt article is definitely „How can coins built on top of Nxt’s platform become a national currency and how could they be used, mainteaned and regulated?“ + the same thing with casinos.

We talked with a lot of companies about coordination with Nxt. Or to get more dev contacts, we we would be able to build all decentralized internet on top of the Nxt. We intriduced Nxt to..30-50 people? So now we can cooperate with OpenCoin, Hive, BitAngels, Dots for Bits… Sadly there reren’t exchanges, only real life german and BTC China 😀 Also we have new contacts for crypto conventions, so we are invited to San Francisco (who will attend?), to Bitcoin Camp (Nevada?) and we also spent hours with the Texas guys. It was important to intriduce Nxt to all consultants, advisors and journalists, so now they can talk about Nxt to other more important persons. It was interesting to bank guys. There was a young ambassadors from Deutsche Bundesbank. They are trying to get to the cryptoworld somehow so they are researching the situation.

I am still too tired to think about it from the higher perspective. So just a little conclusion. We need to send 2-4 ambassadors to every Bitcoin conf/convention, it is really essential.
