SuperNET Newsletter #18

Welcome to the SuperNET.

This week we’ve got the usual roundup of news and developments. The tech is coming together, as James writes: ‘It is getting very close. The core, GUI and windows are really three totally independent projects, but they all need to come together to get a windows release. This is happening.’

James own role could be coming to an end as the core functionality nears completion. ‘I prefer to just make a decentralized self-organizing topology network that allows individuals to remain private and offer services without worrying about all the details cuz it just works.’

Wallet Updates

nxtcrypto-supernet

SuperNET Litewallet v2.0.5-beta

Litewallet users: update to the new version at https://forum.thesupernet.org/index.php?topic=545.0. The Litewallet offers the most user friendly SuperNET experience and includes the MGW multiwallet.

SuperNET NRS plugin

You can use SuperNET as a plugin to the Nxt NRS (the standard Nxt client, rather than the dedicated SuperNET release): https://nxtforum.org/lite-multigateway-releases/supernet-nrs-plugin-v1-0/. Extract and save the plugin component to your NRS client, and simply use SuperNET as a Nxt plugin.

SuperNET NRS 1.5.12 update

After the 1.5 hardfork, there have been a couple of updates. To gain all of Nxt’s and SuperNET’s functionality, you’ll need to download the latest SuperNET client: https://nxtforum.org/lite-multigateway-releases/supernet-v1-5-12-1/

Agents

Agents is James’ dev-friendly plugins system. It offers an easy way of creating new features. James writes, ‘I released Lchains MGW, so far not so many bugs at all, and I got the InstantDEX ported into new structure in 2 days. That includes making cgi, which I never did before. Need to debug it, won’t take long. Then we can get a GUI + core to test on unix. When Windows has SuperNET, then we can make a one click installer. My work is almost done.

‘With agents, especially supporting many languages, I just need to be advising other coders, instead of having to do it all myself. It is like completing the operating system, but there are not so many applications yet. That is why I am making reference applications like MGW, InstantDEX, etc.

‘echodemo is 50 lines of code, but it has all that is needed to make an agent. If you can parse and process JSON, that is all an agent needs to do. It is a JSON processor: JSON input -> JSON output. The agent system automagically gets the inputs from the entire SuperNET and returns the output to where it needs to go. All the networking is abstracted out of it.’

If you want to join development, join SuperNET Slack channel #agents.

Dev assets

SuperNET will be issuing SuperNET Dev assets / “carreer assets”.

The dev will own 90% of this, SuperNET 5% and 5% is dividended out.

100% of a devs earnings from SuperNET is pushed through this asset, so investors can for the first time directly invest in the future earnings of a specific dev. Also, each dev will have a high priced sell wall, so people that want to donate can just pay the above market price.

More info:
https://nxtforum.org/unity/supernet-dev-assets

James writes, ‘Last year I had this idea for artists/athletes, but they are entangled in real world contracts and agents, and therefore problematic, also making sure that they honor the dividend commitment is even more problematic and would require real world contracts.

But the basic idea is sound, ie allow a talented professional to capitalize their future revenues. This allows such a talent to avoid the “starving student” years by selling off part of their future earnings. It also allows investors for the first time (!) to invest in a specific dev, instead of the projects a dev is involved in. Granted, these assets can only assure investors that revenues from SuperNET are paid out, but since it is based on trust in a specific dev, the asset is directly related to the trustworthiness of the dev and his/her future potential’.

777-supernet-slack

Dividend sent

BTCDdev and longzai assets have been sent to SN holders as SuperNET Slack reached 777 users.

MGW agent

supernet-multigateway-mgw

James now uses Lchains to make deposits to MGW. Integrating Lchains makes it significantly faster: ‘Tx 14981284329551545928 is the first automated Lchain MGW deposit. I still need to get the stats reporting fully debugged, but withdraw is the next (and last) thing needed to be done for MGW to be ready for larger scale testing. Latest really really fast ramchain has regenerated 300K BTC blocks in 10 hours. Since it used to take more than 10 days, this is quite a speed boost and also enables debugging at a much faster cycle.

‘I added the ledgerchain code to the (literally) 7th iteration of the ramchain generation. It still will take some minutes to restart from scratch, but if that becomes an issue I already figured out an instant start solution.

‘I had to get the BTC MGW not only working, but fast to run and fast to start and fast to regenerate. These actually are three completely different problems and each one not so easy, but the latest solution is getting close to the “speed of light” type of barrier where I can’t see how to make it go much faster. Maybe someone smarter than me will find ways to make it go even faster… oh, it uses a lot less RAM too. When the code is really optimized, both the algorithm, resource usage and code, then it starts becoming harder and harder to improve it.’

Lchains are the evolved form of ramchains in which ramchains are used to create another layer of data, i.e. the ledger. Learn more about Ramchains here: http://test.nxter.org/?p=7826

Test it

BTCD Lchains MGW is ready for testing. The same code for BTCD MGW is used for BTC MGW. Instructions:

Install BitcoinDarkd:

git clone https://github.com/jl777/btcd; cd btcd/libjl777; make dependencies;
make onetime; make btcd; echo “{\”secret\”:\”randvals\”,\”userdir\”:\”$HOME\”}” > SuperNET.conf; ./BitcoinDarkd
then get a deposit address: ./BitcoinDarkd SuperNET ‘{“plugin”:”MGW”,”method”:”msigaddr”,”coin”:”BTCD”,”userNXT”:”NXT-KAK4-SDL7-DHGT-9W37B”,”broadcastflag”:1}’

The JSON cannot have any syntax errors and it needs to be a valid btcd address. The message cannot be encrypted.

./BitcoinDarkd SuperNET ‘{“plugin”:”relay”,”destplugin”:”MGW”,”method”:”msigaddr”,”coin”:”BTCD”,”userNXT”:”NXT-KAK4-SDL7-DHGT-9W37B”,”broadcastflag”:1}’

The above is the proper syntax to query the MGW servers via the relays.

Small fees to cover server costs

‘MGW [Nxt asset ID 10524562908394749924] has a valuation that is 10% of InstantDEX, actually a bit less due to server costs. I added a bit of withdraw fee (0.05%) and nobody complained, so maybe it can cover server costs from there’.

InstantDEX agent

instantdex-idex-supernet

InstantDEX (Nxt asset ID is looking great:

InstantDEX-SuperNET-ui-lo

James writes, ‘I predict I will reach code complete (meaning only bug fixes left to do) for my portion of InstantDEX on / – what day is today? – / – [tuesday] – / – cool. I think I am at code complete’.

‘The first version will be limited to a few thousand nodes. There are other components too; still a wider scale beta test is hopefully possible soon as the MGW servers are being configured, windows actually got past init and recv packets and the GUI is looking good. Quite a few parts to put all together and we will need as many testers as possible’.

It is still unix only, if you’re interested, join SuperNET Slack channel #testing-instantdex

‘The advantage to testing early is that you will be able to take advantage of the arbitrages that InstantDEX will find automatically for you. I still have improvements in the core I want to do, but I think I can do this as the rest is being finished. I don’t like the long time it takes to regenerate orderbooks, but from the Lchains work I have a way to realtime update NXT tx so it takes no time.

Once I use that for the NXT AE orderflow, then it should be able to create orderbooks in less than 1 second. That and making a dynamic topology for efficient native InstantDEX orderbook propagation. I hope to get both things working this weekend, just might be a long weekend, but when it is done, then we will be able to handle thousands of active InstantDEX traders.’

Cryptosleuth, working on the GUI, writes, ‘I am trying to make it so mostly everything can be customized. The charts on the right you can switch between candlestick/line/areaspline atm, and I am thinking of some other things you can put in there, like combining two to make a mini orderbook/place order window to trade multiple markets easy. I haven’t spent much time on extra things that aren’t needed at GUI’s core.’

You can get a feeling for the iDEX experience in this video: https://vid.me/LVza

PrivateBET agents

Btcddev will be writing a set of C-based agents. The decentralized relays will act as a clearinghouse of all available bets, results, etc. By using the agents method, the problem is divided into several pieces, each becoming a single purpose agent.

Data feed

‘We have the data feed agents, which are there to get (for example) the sports results published to SuperNET – they don’t have to deal with exactly who needs to get it, etc, as SuperNET handles all that. Just get the data and publish.’

Privatebet

‘Now, SuperNET has this data about the sports events and any client with the Privatebet client agent will be able to browse and subscribe, but most importantly the end user will be able to post privatebets, and all the other privatebet clients will be able to find all the available privatebets. Then, similar to InstantDEX direct peer-to-peer process, they will verify terms, lock funds, and then when the event is completed release payment to the winner.’

Cashier Agent

‘There will be a generic cashier agent available to all the other SuperNET agents, so the process of payments is abstracted. At first it will need to be for the same currency in matched amounts, but later I will allow matching X amount of this currency for Y amount of that currency. Of course if the market moves, the value changes, but this is part of the fun.

‘The handling of monies can of course be monetized using the golden rule. Just a percentage of bets to be kept, and the privatebet itself is not needing a bankroll.

‘When the privacy agents become available, betting will be private. In the meantime if you are in USSA please don’t use this, as it is most likely not allowed. Unless you are in Las Vegas, or one of the 14,000 Indian casinos…

‘Since there isn’t a lot of liquidity on the sell side, I can offer bulk amounts direct in BTC or NXT, 1% discount from market price per BTC to a max discount of 20%, but only for a limited time and total amount. PrivateBET [asset ID 17083334802666450484] is majority owned by NXTprivacy [ID 17911762572811467637], which SuperNET has 25% stake in.’

Crypto777

Dividend

James has donated a significant proportion of his new Crypto777 asset (id:     13476425053110940554) to SuperNET. 7.5% / 7.5% / 5% has been donated to SuperNET / NXTventure / JLH, and 24%+ has been sent into the SuperHODL account.

James writes, ‘Yes, I did just put in nearly half of crypto777. It is now the fourth core asset and I didn’t want there to be any resistance for its usage within SuperNET. What is good for crypto777 is good for SuperNET. The crypto777 donated to SuperNET has added  around 30 NXT to UNITY’s NAV’.

Crypto777 is a pipeline asset, and the dividend won’t be made for some time. ‘Current AE orderbook sells need to be cleared and the tech needs to be in beta release or very close’, James writes.

How is crypto777 going to be monetized?

‘There are several ways it can be monetized. It is not officially out yet, I just had a bit of spare time so wanted to get it all in place. It will take some time to get ramped up for the selling of services. It is not a short term thing.

‘The backed and pegged system aims to make a blockchain-enforced mechanism to allow people to get interest on their crypto holdings and there will also be a bid/ask spread built into the blockchain, so these are two sources of monetization.

‘Additionally my idea for providing crypto consulting services to fiat companies, especially with tech like Lchain, well just a few big contracts and it will be making for quite a large cashflow. With the agents system that I will extend to have crypto777 primitives, customizing private blockchain (or even nochain) will be much more efficient than making something from scratch.’

Crypto777 aims to ‘be the tech that solves the final unsolved things about crypto’:

  • Blockchain bloat
  • Price volatility
  • Inconsistent blocktimes
  • Too easy to get hacked

‘With the new SuperNET agents system, I am seeing how many parts can be done in a nice and simple way and reducing the scope of the remaining issues, but this is not an easy problem to solve, as a fully decentralized fiat peg is kind of hard to do. Consensus Research (andruiman and kushti, https://nxtforum.org/consensus-research/) is helping from the theoretical and math side and will even be doing a white paper, which everybody seems to like so much.

Job offer to technical sales creature

‘I am seeing literally dozens of companies getting millions of dollars, and the tech they are needing doesn’t seem to be very much advanced. So, I think with the crypto777 agents system, it would be possible to create customized solutions for corporates, especially the ones with tons of VC money and not enough devs.

‘I need somebody to take the lead for developing this service. We can offer fixed price contracts (for projects with very high confidence levels) so there won’t be any budget risk.

I think contracts in the $50,000 to $100,000 range are possible. Such contracts at first would need to be done by myself, so clearly can’t get this sold in the near term – then again, maybe if we had budgets like that, we can hire coders to work under my guidance. Net profits would be going out as dividends. So if you have experience with technical sales to corporates, contact me.

‘I think some sort of bounty for business brought in and/or percentage of deal flow makes this worth the while for someone who already has the contacts. And if you have experience managing dozens of coders doing half a dozen projects, then this could ramp up into a nice amount of business.’

1%-20% discount on core assets

James writes, ‘I can offer a discount of 1% off of marketprice per BTC, up to a max of 20% off. I accept BTC, NXT, maybe even other things’.

‘Short term I think NXTcoinsco/Tradebots will be pretty good, medium term NXTprivacy or Privatebet, and longer term crypto777. Maybe allocating among these would be a good balance of risk/reward. I can make a single bundle for you at the standard discount.

‘Tradebots/NXTcoinsco gets 30% the revenues that InstantDEX asset holders get, so from a valuation standpoint it is worth at least 30% of InstantDEX. Additionally it will get monetization from the tradebots leasing that it facilitates, it might even do some trading itself. Other than NXTprivacy I think it is one of the most undervalued. But NXTprivacy is further out, so it is longer term hodl.’

SuperNET Services updates

Jay

Secure litewallet and framework
Nxt asset ID: 8688289798928624137

Jay NRS now supports Multigateway 1.0 with mgwBTC.

Jones is creating a Chrome extension for the next version of Jay. ‘With jay v.2 as a browser plugin, it will allow transactions to be made by clicking on the TX_ codes generated, so making trades quickly will be possible in a web application setting. Working as fast as I can :)’.

jay.js is an easy way to integrate an Nxt wallet into your project: http://jnxt.org/jay/

Cryptocard

Semi-anon card from Coinomat
Nxt asset ID: 7110939398145553585

Coinomat: ‘The bank we’re working with now is extremely slow, it is killing me. I found another solution, which seems perfect. The old card will work too. The new cards will be active starting from next week. ’

Card loading will cost 1% + $3. ‘The purchase price will be lower than for the old card.
After we launch this, cryptocard asset will be brought back to life. This is a matter of days.’

SkyNET

Financial analytics AI
Nxt asset ID: 6854596569382794790

Nexern writes:

Changed the landing page to visualize the dev stage: http://finhive.com

Changed the main doc into sections, including api call examples here: http://docs.finhive.com/. An api spec card would look like: http://docs.finhive.com/card.html

analytics, statistics and signaling (see landing page).

‘This API expansion has, besides clarity and completeness, another big advantage. Wrapped into an additional client module, it can be used as a tool to teach trading and explain strategies. There are thousands of sites offering online courses/classes, so a good affiliate program is a win/win for all and helps to spread FinHIVE awareness. Just a handful of affiliations would be sufficient because they are multiplicators. And a trader who used these tools could convert into a loyal customer over time. Moreover, since this module contains not only the definitions/visualization (like a TA encyclopedia) but also the current and historic performance (each symbol get its own data profile, containing the performance for all known indicators) compiled from profiles, it goes much further than all other tools at the market. This is just an additional revenue stream by recycling stuff, from other stuff we need anyway, so it makes sense.’

‘Added a visual overview for pattern detectors/triggers:

1. candlesticks >> http://docs.finhive.com/frm_candles.html
2. chart formations >> http://docs.finhive.com/frm_formations.html
3. point & figure >> http://docs.finhive.com/frm_pandf.html

Now I’m wrapping all this stuff, including the new descriptions and previous components, into the final API, starting the performance-statistics and signaling for all TA components on each symbols.’

‘A clever mind will recognize quickly how to utilize, dense and pipe all this stuff here into something meaningful, to shift probabilities into desired direction. The reference client later will make things much easier then. Now it’s only useful for some devs.

‘Besides visualization it will also contain a complete TA encyclopedia and all stats and tools to build trading systems by simple booleans, including backtesting. And some other useful stuff of course. I guess latest when SkyTrade and SkyBot appears, we will gain a decent level of attention.’

James: ‘I don’t think many people realize how powerful InstantDEX+SkyNET will be.’

Pangea Poker

Decentralized Poker
Nxt asset ID: 6883271355794806507

Valarmg writes, ‘The first 90% of software development takes 90% of the time. The last 10% takes the other 90% of the time, according to the main dev. So it feels like we are close to the first playmoney release, but there are lots of small parts to finish off.

‘The only good news about these delays is that the structure of SuperNET has changed into a much more modular architecture in the last few months, so it’s a much better time to try and integrate a project than earlier in the year.’

Freemarket

Decentralized Marketplace
Nxt asset ID: 134138275353332190

A new FreeMarket version 1.4 now available.

Knuckle writes: ‘This is our best version yet. There are a couple of new features to make FreeMarket easier to use:  New, separate views for sellers (View Your Active Items, View Your Sold Items, View Your Expired Items, and View Your Pending Sales). We have revamped the Relist feature so that it will only relist the quantity of an expired item that didn’t sell; for example, if you listed 10 of an item, sold 3, and then the item expired with 7 unsold, Relist will put 7 of the item up for sale again.’ Trade at http://nxtfreemarket.com.

SuperNET Core Coins

Bitstar

http://bitstarcoin.com

Bitstar will promote and utilise SuperNET on ATMs.

t3cltd writes, ‘Connecting the ATMs to InstantDEX is the ultimate goal. We are waiting on a number of things, not least of which for InstantDEX to be fully tested and operational in order to then be able to set the ATM real-time trade orders to automatically be handled by InstantDEX. I’m hoping to not have to set them on a centralised exchange process at all.

We’re in one of those situations that could see it all happen in double-quick time once we reach a certain point, or it could remain bogged down in inching forward as elements are put in place. InstantDEX is a critical part of everything both SuperNET is doing and the ATM side of things. It is critical that it be given the attention it needs to test fully and prove itself as the first decentralised trading platform in the industry.

Any revenue that SuperNET earns from the ATMs will come from the transaction fee generated through InstantDEX.

BTCD

http://bitcoindark.pw

Get paid for staking

BitcoinDark has started a new feature in recent weeks: dividend payments to stakers. This was always a plan for BTCD, with stakers receiving a proportion of revenues from InstantDEX and SuperNET, as well as through inflationary ‘rewards’ (5% each: the 5:5:5 scheme).

Now, the MMBTCD asset (a market-making and mutual fund built on Nxt, that pays out in superBTCD) is paying 10% of weekly revenues directly to stakers. Each week, a call integrated into the core of BTCD creates a list of all recent stakers, then pays them a proportion of the total dividend, depending on how many blocks they staked. Unlike paying stakers in proportion to their stakeweight, this rewards clients who stake 24/7, maintaining the strength of the network. BTCD is the first gen1 currency to include such a feature.

A script written by Btcddev enables anyone to make use of the functionality. Once it has been tested, it will be integrated into the new BTCD client, and ‘that way, BTCD can really be attractive as an asset. Anyone can easily pay divs using btcd’s network for his service.’

‘Anyone who wants to use btcd for a revenue generating service might consider paying dividends to stakers. They keep the network going, and the value of the BTCD (and therefore the service itself) will rise. A case in point is InstantDEX’, writes Btcddev.

Btcddev continues, ‘The getstakers command outputs number of blocks staked, not how much you staked. So if you stake constantly and find 10 blocks in a week, you will receive 10x the payment than if you turned it on for an hour and staked 1 block, even though you staked the same number of BTCD’.

Note that mgwBTCD/superBTCD does not stake. Read more at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=762346.new;topicseen#new

Initial dividends

MMBTCD: market-making and mutual fund
http://bitcoindark.pw/mmbtcd-btcd-market-making-and-mutual-fund/

Two dividends have already been paid out from MMBTCD, with more on the way weekly.
See http://bitcoindark.pw/bitcoindark-pays-first-dividend-to-stakers/

For upcoming dividends, as well as the 10% revenues from MMBTCD, James is donating 100 BTCD (this week only), mivond is donating 10% of revenues from  bitcoindarkdice.net.

‘Think about this. Once InstantDEX and other major services begin generating money, a large percentage of the new money supply will be bought as BTCD and paid to stakers, reducing inflation. It would be nice if BTCD bought reached greater than or equal to number of coins staked.’

PayExpo2015

Nxt enjoyed a solid presence at the conference.

Bas Wisselink (Nxt Foundation) writes, ‘Nxt was one of two booths for crypto, the other being GetCredits. We got some pretty high level attention, for which we are now going to do follow ups. We’ve talked to a lot of people from both the banking and payment industries. They don’t actually hate Bitcoin or crypto, but Bitcoin is definitely not being considered as much as you’d expect’.

‘They have seen the potential of the new technologies. They see more opportunities in newer tech that is built with new ideas, but taking the innovations of bitcoin, and they already know Bitcoin will be obsolete quite soon. And why would one go with obsolete technology?’

‘Uses that people are looking for are primarily secure and auditable ledgers and tokenisation. For the “developed” world, the currency angle doesn’t really strike a chord, but for the “developing” world, the currency side is potentially HUGE. We got a few people wanting to work on that. One of the lessons here is to look for solutions that actually solve a problem for a large demographic’.

NXT ATM in Vienna

Coinimal writes, ‘We have established the world’s first NXT ATM’.

‘The ATM is placed in the ‘Gretel’ café in Vienna’s most popular shopping street, Mariahilfer Strasse. The purchase process takes only a few seconds and after insertion of the desired cash amount into the machine, it automatically sends the equivalent in Bitcoin or NXT to the desired address. The beauty of this ATM is, that we were able to jointly expand the General bytes software so that this machine has the opportunity to issue NXT’.

Drachmae

http://www.drachmae.org

SuperNET is platinum sponsor for the Drachmae project.

Drachmae writes, ‘Drachmae is a hybrid banking system built over NXT using NXT core functions like AE, MS and Voting. It’s otherwise called a “Central Bank in a box” over the blockchain.’

See further at www.drachmaeconnect.com and www.drachmae.exchange

‘Everything started to be built on the 5th of May and was presented and demo working on the 20th of May. With all the media that is looming around it I need to close it in Greece with government or private association. We already have one assocation interested in taking drachmaeconnect as a business barter network.’ The project has potentially huge significance. ‘It’s not just about Greece. Greece is the test dummy of what will happen to Italy, Spain, Portugal… I am arguing with the EU Commission over drachmae as they don’t like the idea – this could be a solution.

There has been lots of great publicity about this:

Damelon writes, ‘This project, even when not viable, has generated more high level attention than 4 months of articles on things like CoinTelegraph. It gets people talking and that for me is its most important function.’

BTCOR

https://www.btcor.co

BTCOR Group Investment supports SuperNET in alignment with a profit-for-change paradigm, and it’s the first NXT asset to utilize Nxt’s revolutionary Monetary System technology and Asset Exchange to generate dividends on stored wealth. BTCOR and its SERIES VENTURE wealth storage facilities allow for holding/storing value in the form of ASSETS, GOLD, SILVER, BITCOIN and the US DOLLAR.

BTCOR is the parent asset and is the simplest choice for investment. Funds received through sales of the BTCOR asset will be used to appreciate value for shareholders by investing primarily in SuperNET’s technology, core coins, and assets and by seizing any other opportunities the Executive Board may deem advantageous.  Any dividends received by assets held in the BTCOR Treasury will be redistributed proportionately to BTCOR shareholders on a monthly basis.

Last week BTCOR announced the members of its diversely talented and respected team https://www.btcor.co/btcor-team/ alongside its business plan https://www.btcor.co/btcor-group-investment/, which details the asset’s complex structure and core principles.

NXT Market Report: 15 September 2014

Market Cap

Welcome to this week’s market report. Reviewing what’s been happening in the last few days is a real pleasure. At the time of writing NXT may have gained ‘only’ 1% in price but during the course of the week (12 September) NXT was valued at USD 43.2m and therefore reached its highest price since the beginning of August.

This increase in price is one consequence of the superNET ICO.

A second effect of the “ICO”, and probably even more important, was the significant increase in the trading volume with a peak at USD 250’000. Since the superNET ICO will last for at least another week we can expect a steady volume at around USD 100’000 – 150’000 for the next week and will probably see another rise in value.

In my last market report I pointed out the increasing ascendancy of NXT and this fact hasn’t changed. There are 9 NXT  trading pairs on 7 different exchanges with a daily trading volume of more than USD 1’000. If we also take the Multigateway into consideration, the number of exchanges with a decently filled order book rises to 8!

Status of the superNET ICO

The superNET ICO had a very successful start – within 2 hours jl777 raised funds valued at USD 1m! Since then, the fund raising has slowed down quite a bit but the funds are still flowing in steadily. A number of investors have indicated that they will be buying (more) tokens towards the end of the ICO period in the expectation of higher Nxt prices: because the token is priced in BTC, the Nxt price of the token on the Asset Exchange decreases with a rising NXT price. As of 13 September 14:00:01 GMT jl777 sold 438’214 tokens and raised the following amounts:

  • 621’425.55 CNY (@ 2907.5 BTC/CNY)
  • 5’403 VIA (@ 0.00035055 BTC/VIA)

Converted into BTC, as at the exchange rates for 14 September 2014, the above figures produce a total of 4335.47 Bitcoins! 

What is CoinEvolve.com?

We are happy to welcome CoinEvolve.com to the Nxt Community. CoinEvolve.com develops projects for crypto currencies and has already finished two: CryptoHire.com and CoinGigs.com. You can get more information about these projects in their announcement thread on nxtforum.org.

CoinEvolve.com announced their IPO on the NXT Asset Exchange on 4 September 2014.  Initially there wasn’t really a lot of interest in their IPO asset EVOLVE since the offered product is new to the community and there was no immediate expectation of significant earning potential, at least in the short term. Then, on 13 September jl777 announced a partnership between SuperNET and CoinEvolve.com.

This announcement resulted in panic buying on the Asset Exchange – within 6 hours the offered IPO shares at 0.6 NXT were sold out and the market price sky rocketed to 3 NXT each. CoinEvolve.com decided to issue a second asset called EVOLVE2 on the same basis as the first one. This time the asset was sold out within 1.5 hours! More evidence of the so called ‘jl777 effect’!

What’s going on in the Asset Exchange?

Privatebet: Privatebet is also one of jl777’s famous assets. jl777 bought some know-how from Come-from-Beyond for 200k NXT regarding a once popular gambling game called SatoshiDice. The owner earned millions with it but his service lost popularity because he had to switch from unconfirmed to confirmed transactions. In effect, jl777 bought the solution to how this service could be run on top of Nxt without being restricted to only accepting confirmed transactions. After jl777 won the auction, the price of Privatbet increased multiple times up to 88.83 NXT and is now listed at 84.99 NXT.

Nxttycoin: I have written about Nxttycoin in a previous market report. Nxttycoin has so far proved to be an outstanding investment possibility in the Asset Exchange: not only has its increase in value been remarkable, Nxttycoin holders also receive 5% interest on their coins at the end of every month.

You may have seen seen that Nxttycoin recently dropped several places on coinmarketcap (CMC). CMC has decided, for the purposes of calculating market capitalizations, only to count the coin supply actually tradeable on the market which, in the case of Nxttycoins, is 200M rather than the 1BN total supply on which the market cap was previously calculated. This of course means that Nxttycoin’s market cap is now 2o% of what it was previously.

The remaining 800M Nxttycoins are held in escrow by the Nxttycoin Foundation to cover the monthly ‘interest’ of 5% and to meet the developer’s commitment to distribute Nxttycoins among the first 100’000 users of the Nxtty messaging service.

The launch of the Nxtty messenger service has been postponed several times now in order to take into account all the feedback  regarding possible improvements. The design of the application has been upgraded and the developer is planning to include a wallet for Nxttycoin in the application itself. The purpose of the wallet is twofold: to make in-app tipping a reality whilst at the same time introducing the user base to crypto currencies, which I find an amazing approach. We are looking forward to the final launch of the app and to its installation on our mobile devices.

That’s it for this week’s market report; I hope you enjoyed it!

Description:

PrivateBet will allow individuals to make escrowed bets directly between each other. It will be designed to support P2P sports betting and casino games. PrivateBet creator jl777 has recently won an auction for the technology that will enable a new version of the highly popular SatoshiDice game, which lost many users due to switching from unconfirmed to confirmed transactions. The new technology will avoid this problem and hence access a known and active market.

jl777:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1G-xRirAIAFHhJb1b04HG5EGXoG68O7SesiRm9mbRI9c/edit?usp=sharing has a rough description of GUI, the more specific technical details are not strictly accurate and has been changed, but at least you will get some ideas on what to expect.

Privatebet is what is sounds like, it allows you to make bets directly with someone else. For events with publicly verifiable results, there will be a decentralized mechanism for the payouts. You can create one shot bets based on anything you can think of, but for this you would need to get someone to agree to be your arbiter in case both parties cant agree as to what the result is.

Privatebet won an auction from Come-from-Beyond for a way to obtain provably random numbers from the NXT blockchain. The initial vehicle for this tech will be within the neoDICE asset, which is based on the satoshi dice game. This asset will payout 100% of revenues in dividends. The reason this is possible is that the dev who is implementing the neoDICE will have a significant percentage. So, the asset represents a slightly higher return for purchasers than the actual dev who is doing the work and maintaining the servers. After discussions with Come-from-Beyond, I think it is possible to fully decentralize the entire neoDICE, but any such Version 2.0 will be something for next year.

I will be encapsulating this provable random distribution of numbers into the SuperNET API and this will solve one of the thorny issues when it comes to making any type of casino game, eg. cards, slots, etc. So, with this API call, if there was a nice GUI and game play for a game, we have a very nice combination.
So, the plan is the following:

1. Select dev for a particular casino game
2. Issue asset to dev 10% to 40% depending on how much capital is needed
3. 50% of the asset goes to Privatebet, 10% to JLH and if capital is needed up to 30% to NXTventure
4. When the game is in beta and completion is virtually certain, NXTventure or the dev will make some available for sale
4b. In the event NXTventure provided capital, enough assets are sold to at least recoup the amount invested and the balance is distributed as dividends to the NXTventure asset holders.

At the end of this process, Privatebet has a new casino game asset providing 50% of its revenues.
NXTventure asset holders get some nice dividend or the dev is making some initial sales, or a bit of both.
The dev will now have a way to get some cash when needed just by selling a bit off via NXT AE. JLH gets its customary 10%.

P.S. SuperNET will of course consider partnering with companies on these type of terms. PM me if you are decision maker for such a company. All the standard and non-standard games will be considered. Also any unique game of chance is of course always welcomed.

NXTprivacy owns 50% of Privatebet and the dividends from Privatebet will flow through to NXTprivacy asset holders, so this puts a 2:1 ratio between Privatebet and NXTprivacy.

[UPDATE]: Privatebet now owns 40% of NeoDICE (asset ID 18184274154437352348).

Description on Nxt Asset Exchange:

Privatebet will allow people to make bets directly with each other in a decentralized way. It will let people create their own personal bet with a designated arbiter in addition to automatically supporting a range of standard events with betting interest, like sports betting. Privatebet will only accept crypto and no personal information will be required from its customers. It will have a fee of 1% to begin with, subject to change to adapt to market forces. The goal is to automate as much of Privatebet as possible and it is expected to be able to payout about 80% of the fees it collects as dividends. Please follow the NXTforum for more detals and up to date information.
