Every moment is a fresh beginning

Good day, good people! For 6 months I haven’t posted on nxter.org. That’s a world record for me. So, yesterday I soft-launched the redesign of the Nxter.org website. Still some things to be done, but ain’t there always. It’s about time to get re-started. If you’re in ardornxt.slack you know I’ve been working on cleaning …

Dear Investors, It’s Time To Face The Real Facts

Many of the existing blockchain startups that are looking to raise money are not real businesses. Yes, they have ideas, often brilliant ones that almost sound too good to be true. And then… that’s it. Nothing but ideas put on paper with no clue on how to fully execute it to make the promised prototype. …

A Review of Dominium/Max Crowdfund

For your information: The project “Dominium” changed its name to Max Crowdfund in late 2018. We’ve kept the original name in the article for historical reasons.  I suspect I wasn’t the only Nxter to be caught off guard by the articles from several weeks ago describing how a company called Dominium will build a platform …

NXT/ARDOR: A SKY OF CLOUDS

There is no gainsaying that information rules the world, for information is simply knowledge and knowledge, they say, is power. Come to think of it, what can we do without information? Exactly! Information is everything we need to survive, and at the heart of that surviving factor (information) lies data. Everybody has got a need …

The Equal Market You Ought to Explore

Equality has always been a farfetched term and only exists in the dreams. Unfairness and inequality have gone beyond the five fingers and have eaten deep into all systems. But then, this isn’t a conversation that concerns us at the moment. However, the market is. Who can survive without a market? No living man can, …

What Good is Ignis, Anyway?

Recently there have been several posts on the Nxt and Ardor subreddits asking about Ignis: Why did Jelurida create it? What problems does it solve? Why would people want to use it? I suspect that for a lot of longtime members of the Nxt community, the answers to these questions are self-evident. For newcomers, though, …
