Together we can make a big splash to as wide an audience as possible. Please post where you have sent the articles and be sure to boast which ones got placed!

There will be more to do over the next week, this is just the start!

Press Release 1

A new digital goods store powered by NXT, the popular second-generation cryptocurrency, will allow independent musicians, game developers, writers and artists to reach new markets and keep 100 percent of their revenues.

The NXT Digital Goods Store (DGS) is set to launch in the second week of August, offering an exciting new platform for independent artists to sell their material.

DGS is built on NXT, a versatile and feature-rich cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies are a suite of new technologies that allow users to send money directly between each other over the internet, quickly, securely and almost for free. Whilst most cryptocurrencies are restricted to money transfer alone, however, NXT has developed the concept to allow transfer and trading of any digital asset – including media files. The result is a platform that allows musicians and other content creators to deal directly with their customers, rather than relying on expensive middlemen.

No commissions
‘We’re really excited about this development,’ comments Dan Kindly, NXT marketing associate. ‘Most digital media stores take a big commission from their artists. If you’re struggling to get started, that can represent a real barrier to your career. NXT’s Digital Goods Store allows anyone to list their tracks for free. They get to keep 100 percent of the revenue. That’s money that can go back into marketing and development, or be returned to customers, rather than ending up in the pockets of a big corporation.’

Apple famously takes a 30 percent cut of iTunes subscription sales. By contrast, the only cost of using NXT’s DGS will be the 1 NXT transaction fee, currently around $0.04 – and this is likely to be reduced to 0.1 NXT in the future. (Everything within the NXT ecosystem is priced in its native currency, though customers can use another NXT service, the Multigateway, to convert other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin into NXT to spend.) One of the first artists to use the Digital Goods Store will be German musician SinanBoom, who is listing his new EP of 6 songs for 99 NXT. Further videos will be released at a later date.

Getting started
In the coming weeks, users will be able to access a range of digital media on the NXT Digital Goods Store, including games, apps, music, videos and ebooks.

You can download the NXT client, which includes the Digital Goods Store, for free at www.nxt.org. NXT can be purchased for dollars or Euros from CCEDK, or exchanged for Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies from the Multigateway or a number of other cryptocurrency exchanges.

CCEDK and NXT partner to promote new Digital Goods Store for indie artists

A new digital goods store powered by second-generation cryptocurrency NXT and supported by international exchange CCEDK, will allow independent musicians, game developers, writers and artists to reach new markets and keep 100 percent of their revenues.

The NXT Digital Goods Store (DGS) is set to launch in the second week of August, offering an exciting new platform for independent artists to sell their material. A partnership with Danish exchange CCEDK will make it easy for prospective customers to buy NXT, a popular second-generation cryptocurrency, enabling them to get started in this innovative and powerful marketplace.

NXT and CCEDK
The Digital Goods Store is built on NXT, a versatile and feature-rich cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies are a suite of new technologies that allow users to send money directly between each other over the internet, quickly, securely and almost for free. Whilst most cryptocurrencies are restricted to money transfer alone, however, NXT has developed the concept to allow transfer and trading of any digital asset – including media files. The result is a platform that allows musicians and other content creators to deal directly with their customers, rather than relying on expensive middlemen.

The partnership with CCEDK is a natural one, for more than one reason. Aside from offering the easiest path from dollars and Euros into NXT, the Digital Goods Store’s in-store currency, the exchange’s CEO Ronny Boesing worked in the industry for 25 years, travelling the world to distribute and publish music, games, videos and other digital media. Boesing established CCEDK earlier this year, and says that the transition from music distributor to cryptocurrency trader is not as large as it might appear. ‘It might seem like a big jump, but the difference isn’t really that great,’ says 48-year-old Boesing in an interview. ‘I am a pioneer in spirit, and all my life I have made my income getting out there to the rest of the world, in places and countries no one else thought profitable, trying to sell a product.’

The advantages of decentralisation
In this partnership between NXT and CCEDK – which will offer buyers and sellers of digital content a full path into and back out of NXT from their own currencies – Boesing has come full circle. There’s one big difference, though: his profits will come from sales of NXT on CCEDK, not from music and other media. That’s because the Digital Goods Store is designed as a decentralised service: anyone can use it, since it not controlled by any one company or individual. There are no fees for listing products. That means both artists and their customers will see better value.

‘Most digital media stores take a big commission from their artists,’ says Dan Kindly, NXT marketing associate. ‘If you’re struggling to get started, that can represent a real barrier to your career. NXT’s Digital Goods Store allows anyone to list their tracks for free. They get to keep 100 percent of the revenue. That’s money that can go back into marketing and development, or be returned to customers, rather than ending up in the pockets of a big corporation.’

From Selling Music to Trading Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and NXT

For more than 25 years, Ronny Boesing distributed and published CDs, DVDs, games and other digital media all over the world, in over 65 countries on five continents. Today, he runs CCEDK: the first Danish online exchange for digital currencies such as Bitcoin and NXT, as well as a range of others including Peercoin and Litecoin.

‘It might seem like a big jump, but the difference isn’t really that great,’ says 48-year-old Boesing in an interview. ‘I am a pioneer in spirit, and all my life I have made my income getting out there to the rest of the world, in places and countries no one else thought profitable, trying to sell a product. The product might be different each time; the whole world, however, is still my little playground,’ he remarks, a glint in his eye.

Is there a link between the two careers of music distribution and cryptocurrency trading? Yes, says Boesing: not least because transparency and good Danish common sense are both factors for ensuring future international success. They’re also both fast-moving industries, where the advantages of seizing an opportunity can be immense.

Bitcoin and NXT
‘I would characterise myself as a realistic optimist. I tend to say yes, when others decline. I also believe in the good in people, but once let down, I do have a tendency not to forgive that easily. I don’t see myself as naive, as I stay away from any projects I don’t have a gut instinct about.’ This is how Ronny Boesing describes himself, and it’s why he decided to start a Bitcoin exchange earlier this year. Not content to focus on Bitcoin alone – the most widely-used form of digital money – he researched other cryptocurrencies, selecting NXT and a handful of others to trade on his new platform. Boesing plans to add further cryptocurrencies to CCEDK later in the year.

Whilst Bitcoin enables money transfers alone, NXT is a so-called second-generation cryptocurrency that offers a much wider range of capabilities. Rather than being digital money, it can be thought of as the infrastructure for a digital economy. Although NXT can be sent and traded just like Bitcoins, the platform also offers a range of innovative features – not least a digital goods store, which can be used to buy and sell music, videos, ebooks and other media. Because it is decentralised, it is effectively owned and run by everyone, meaning there is no corporation to take a large commission fee and artists receive 100 percent of their profits.

Introducing CCEDK

The venture came about at the beginning of 2014, when he was approached by an international investment group – one of whom was a good friend from back in the nineties, and an old distributor of music. The group had long had its eyes on Denmark due to the liberal and open regulatory framework there, and already knowing Boesing as a trustworthy, tolerant and flexible entrepreneur the choice was easy. Boesing took up the challenge with a will, and on March 20th, 2014 the company Crypto Coins Exchange Denmark ApS (CCEDK ApS) was created. Boesing became the founder of the very first cryptocurrency exchange of it is kind in Denmark. The exchange itself went live on May 26th 2014, starting with Bitcoin and adding NXT soon afterwards with the help of its developers and marketers.

‘These are exciting times, and it’s great to be working with such a strong and vibrant community,’ he says. ‘The NXT community is extremely active and has many talented people working in it. When you’re launching an initiative like CCEDK, it’s important to know that you have partners who will back you and grow with you as you move forwards. We’re all looking forward to a very bright future.’
