NXT Starcraft 2 tournament. APPROVED (Cancelled)

-----------------------------Submission date-----------------------------
31 March, 2014
-----------------------------Short description-----------------------------
Market NXT to the starcraft 2 community VIA a starcraft 2 event in order to educate them on NXT and hopefully expand the userbase of NXT.

-----------------------------Long description-----------------------------
I have previously with help from Uniqueorn put on a starcraft 2 showmatch with a 25,000 NXT prize pool between Ret and Whitera which unfortunately ended in a clean sweep for Ret but it still managed to reach over 6300 unique viewers with a peak of 1431 concurrent watching live on the stream.

The objective of this event would be to put on a much more extensive event, A 16 person event taking place over two days similar to the recently concluded vasacast invitational which managed to keep an audience of 16,000-20,000 live concurrent viewers throughout the majority of the event in several languages. The goal would be to put on an event similar to the Vasacast invitational hopefully reaching tens of thousands of people around the world and educating them what NXT is in hopefully as many languages as possible.

-----------------------------Target Audience-----------------------------
Starcraft 2 fans mostly aged 18-30
-----------------------------Budget-----------------------------
80,000 Going to the prize pool, Paying the casters for there work, And Marketing materials such as promotional images. We could shoot for a smaller event if you dont want to go for this size of an event though.

-----------------------------Deadline-----------------------------
I would like to plan on shooting for the end of april/early may although it may have to be delayed in order to prevent scheduling conflicts with other events.


Edit, due to the delay it would have to be mid to late may in order to get everything organized in time and get everything finalized in order to make sure it all goes smoothly.

-----------------------------Metrics-----------------------------
Viewership from the streams on twitch.tv and the VOD viewership from the VOD's on youtube with specific statistics taken from the analysis tools built into twitch.tv to get total unique viewers and everything else.

Edit, This is the thread from the showmatch with links to the VOD's. http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/sc2-tournaments/443331-nxt-starcraft-showmatch

Yes, there are some pretty good sized professional starcraft leagues not only in korea but also around the world with the global WCS event and alot of smaller events around the globe. But yes korea is still a huge competitor in the starcraft scene.

Would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Also as i said the budget can be pretty flexible and we could do almost any kind of event if you wouldn't want to do a 2 day invitational tournament. We could do a weekly king of the hill event or possibly something along the lines of trial of the xel'naga which was a pretty successful event meant for pure fun instead of people competing all out in a more serious event for a large prize pool.

I like this, because it could appeal to a large group.

However, I would like a very firm and clear plan on how we get this known.

The last contest was great, *I hear*, but I have seen nothing but the promo and as far as I know nothing else came from it.

Can you tell us how the people involved felt like it? Did we get people interested in Nxt? Are some of these people still here?

I am at least looking to learn from past experiences here. What is you opinion on the value of this and how can we maximise exposure?

In theory this can be fun and BIG. How can we make sure it actually is?

However, I would like a very firm and clear plan on how we get this known.

My current plan would be to announce players in two announcements both of them announcing 8 players giving us more exposure on the front pages of the starcraft fansites. This would put us on the front page of reddit.com/r/starcraft for more then one day maximizing the exposure for the event and fueling more discussion on it creating more hype for the event. The players would also put it announce it on there social network accounts putting it in front of there fan bases. The players we invite would be well known players in order to maximize the exposure on that front.

After that we would mostly wait for the event day, Then on the event day on teamliquid the event would be on the sidebar showing that its on air and with links to all the currently live streams. And on reddit there will be a thread up in order to remind people over there that the event is taking place.

We could potentially do a announcement video if anyone is good at video editing in order to make more hype for the event.

Im not sure what you mean by nothing else came from it. If you are referencing the event its self then everything happened that was planned. If you could elaborate on what you mean then it would be appreciated.

The players involved were pretty interested into NXT. One of them is in it for the long haul and the other wanted to cash out.

The casters had no interest in learning crypto currencies so they both cashed out.

Quote
I am at least looking to learn from past experiences here. What is you opinion on the value of this and how can we maximize exposure?

I personally think that this holds alot of potential in order to grow the NXT community or at the very least get NXT into the minds of tens of thousands of people. In order to maximize exposure we would mainly due what i described in response to your first question.

One thing in order to maximize the amount of people coming into NXT would be stuff such as 30 second to one minute ads we could play during down time explaining some of the advantages of NXT and what NXT is.

hi,

would you include a report, like: http://bostonherald.com/entertainment/lifestyle/2014/04/call_of_duty_championship_shows_power_of_esports ?

thanks


So try and get reporters to cover the event? I would try to but no guarantees as its not really my area of expertise. I could do a post mortem of it myself though.

TeamWealth: well, sure you can try, but I was asking for a text report about the tournament - you could simply post it to this forum and to gaming forums. We can do the distribution and contacting journalists then, but we need to have that text :)

Ok, wasn't sure on what you meant by that. So basically a post mortem covering all the details of the event and how successful it was? Sure i can do that. I would put it on the teamliquid blog section and this forum, put up a post on reddit linking to it and also putting up the same post from teamliquid on here.

This is essentially what I meant by "not knowing what became of it".

A post-mortem would be very nice :)

Ok, i will get one written up if we put this event on and after i get all the relevant data so probably a few days after its conclusion. But the showmatch that was put on i really did not do any post mortem or anything else to answer your question damelon.

No matter. I'd rather look to what we cán do in the future, than gripe about the past :)

I'd like to add that this isn't just about sponsoring / hosting a event.
The casters actually did broadcast the message and all the important intel about NXT to the 6000+ viewers several times during the hours that the showmatch ran.

We would also have been able to get more media coverage if there was funds for this. We BARELY got 25K for this huge event (whens the last time over 6K people who had never heard of NXT learned of NXT last time?) after I had to fight with salsa for days for it.
I even had to pay TeamWealth from my own money for the tremendous effort he put into it.

QBTC also stepped up with graphics.


So I guess my conclusion is: if people would've actually listened and salsacz had shut the fuck up then events like this would already have been the norm.

No remember how our logs showed differently ?
Remember how the funds were from both Neer.g and Hash for this?

What you were complaining about was that there was additional costs (Organization and Casters) which I had tried to explain to you for weeks, which you dismissed as "spam" and "a wall of text" because you are so incompetent that I barely fathom how you are even capable of using a computer.

Then afterwards you used this SUCCESFUL event as a part of your smear campaign against me. Randomly saying out of context "25K NXT on Showmatch and no report!?" in an attempt to get the community against it. This was AFTER I had provided you all the facts of viewership, the vods and how shit went down.
You are a clown and should not be a part of this decision at all, go back to writing articles and paying yourself.


*EDIT*

Anyway, I am not going to waste more time or derail this thread.
I just want people to understand why the last event, which was a success, wasn't even better covered and also why the additional costs exist.
Organizing this + casters + graphics actually cost time and money.

That is a bullshit statistic and you know it all too well. Just because you put ad in a paper that is PERHAPS read by 250K that doesn't mean even 1% actually read the article about it.
And also if we are to count people who may have glanced at it (since you use the 250K number) then I can also say that additionally TENS OF THOUSAND saw the NXT SHOWMATCH reddit thread, the forum posts etc.

These was guys PRESENTING NXT with details and explanation and comparing it to Bitcoin and DOGEcoin which was well known in the eSport scene already. There was a 13 BTC showmatch in the same community at the height of the Bitcoin value (13 000 dollars), so there was a reference point.

Like I told you: the eSport scene is a HUGE market filled with the EXACT target audience we want. Teens and guys in their 20s who love technology and got money to spend.

There is a reason that the ad you refer to as "900 NXT" only cost 900 NXT. If the adspot was effective it would cost more. It's the laws of marketing. You should google it.

it is hard to get these data :D

But you can look at new accounts in blockchain explorer:

Day : 92    84
Day : 91    87

Day : 89    116

Day : 87    145

you can compare this with 20th and 21st March, when I did last marketing campaign:

Interesting data points salsacz. The people i talked to who watched the event afterwards said they had checked out NXT and thought it was interesting and said they would check it out.

Unfortunately it is hard to say for sure. We were directing people to check out nxtcrypto.org so possibly we could see if there was a traffic spike on that day?

One thing i think would be good to do would be to setup a webpage with a simple redirect so we could better track the turnover rate from viewership to looking into NXT.

One thing i think would be good to do would be to setup a webpage with a simple redirect so we could better track the turnover rate from viewership to looking into NXT.

There could maybe be a special page for this, like - starcraft.nxtcrypto.org :D - but actually my idea about this was not based on the numbers of new accounts, I was asking for a report/article about it so I would be able to post it to some important news sites, so it was aimed to the long term goals

 - the thing is - is Nxt really prepared for people from the non-crypto world? Right now?

I think with NRS client definitely not, because this is not a software for other people, even if they are used to deal with game cracking.

The situation is slowly better thanks to the wesley's client - first that I downloaded and it worked, there were no bugs/errors/puzzles... So the first step should be soon - having wesley's client as our default client instead of NRS.

But what else? Without wordpress plugins, Nxt is still very unfriendly to all retailers. If we have a kickstarter, that could be better, because then Nxt could be really useful for anyone. Starcraft people could come here and fund their own starcraftcon or anything.

The other thing is a marketing. Yes, right now Nxt is only just like other cryptos, even like Dogecoin. What Dogecoin fans do, is - if they fund anything, they spread the word, they share the news about their Olympic/Nascar/etc fundings. So everyone is informed about their acts even weeks after the funding. This is why we do this, why we want to support such events. To get attention of media. Last time there were some links at some sites or forums, but no mainstream Magazines were involved and after the match - we had no new info about the event so we weren't allowed to use it for other marketing campaigns


If we compare Nxt to Dogecoin, I think we will be ready for such events with integrated wesley's client. But if we want to be compared to Ethereum, we should focus on research and education till summer and then with released FANTASTIC features, we can focus on mainstream. Right now we should spend more resources on development, education, looking for our visions, studying Nxt and looking for university students/teachers/cryptographers to come and join us.


So to help solving my little puzzle, I have a little question for TemWealth: why is better to have a tournament in April than in August/September? thank you

I think one of the points you have missed COMPLETELY salsa is that this wasn't just about getting X amount of new users. It's the most cumbersome task in the world right now to get NXT. I already told you this way before the showmatch.

It's about putting NXT into the subconscious of people, so that when people search "NXT" they don't just find LEGO and Wrestling.
When you've seen something once your brain will notice it the next time. This is a well-documented phenomena in psychology. This is what marketing is all about.

Sure we probably got a small surge in users from it, but that wasn't the primary goal

There could maybe be a special page for this, like - starcraft.nxtcrypto.org :D - but actually my idea about this was not based on the numbers of new accounts, I was asking for a report/article about it so I would be able to post it to some important news sites, so it was aimed to the long term goals


Yeah, i think putting together a page even if its just a redirect to the main page of nxtcrypto would help with statistics gathering. Shouldnt be to hard to throw together i think.



Im not 100% sure what you mean so correct me if im wrong. But you are requesting an article before the event? I was planning on working on something like that for the announcement thread.


Quote

 - the thing is - is Nxt really prepared for people from the non-crypto world? Right now?

I think with NRS client definitely not, because this is not a software for other people, even if they are used to deal with game cracking.

The situation is slowly better thanks to the wesley's client - first that I downloaded and it worked, there were no bugs/errors/puzzles... So the first step should be soon - having wesley's client as our default client instead of NRS.



I agree that the NXT ecosystem needs to evolve a bit more but i do anticipate an easy to use client would be out before the event is ready. Along with the launch of the asset exchange i feel would be in a good position in order to get a good first impression of NXT.


Quote
But what else? Without wordpress plugins, Nxt is still very unfriendly to all retailers. If we have a kickstarter, that could be better, because then Nxt could be really useful for anyone. Starcraft people could come here and fund their own starcraftcon or anything.

I do not see it being a big deal if there arent shops at the time of the event honestly. Retailers want to see positive growth or good publicity in NXT before putting in the time to develop there storefronts to support NXT which would be able to be provided with events such as a starcraft tournament and articles written about it. Overstock did not invest the development time into bitcoin until it started to get huge publicity not when it was a small tight knit group who believes in the future of the concept. It will be the same with NXT and we have to start somewhere if we want companies outside of small startups which are mostly only known to the NXT community to support NXT.

Quote
The other thing is a marketing. Yes, right now Nxt is only just like other cryptos, even like Dogecoin. What Dogecoin fans do, is - if they fund anything, they spread the word, they share the news about their Olympic/Nascar/etc fundings. So everyone is informed about their acts even weeks after the funding. This is why we do this, why we want to support such events. To get attention of media. Last time there were some links at some sites or forums, but no mainstream Magazines were involved and after the match - we had no new info about the event so we weren't allowed to use it for other marketing campaigns

And we could do that. But remember the last time it was more so a proof of concept. If you want to try and get huge amounts of media attention then you can try to but as ive said before that really is not my area of expertise so i would be happy to provide any information needed but i do not think it would be best for me to be in charge of that portion of it.


Quote
So to help solving my little puzzle, I have a little question for TemWealth: why is better to have a tournament in April than in August/September? thank you


The reason i would want to focus on shooting for late april/early may would be in order to try and get around around scheduling conflicts with other events such as WCS and all. The biggest thing we want to avoid is scheduling conflicts with other events competing for viewers.

Interesting data points salsacz. The people i talked to who watched the event afterwards said they had checked out NXT and thought it was interesting and said they would check it out.

Unfortunately it is hard to say for sure. We were directing people to check out nxtcrypto.org so possibly we could see if there was a traffic spike on that day?

One thing i think would be good to do would be to setup a webpage with a simple redirect so we could better track the turnover rate from viewership to looking into NXT.

There could maybe be a special page for this, like - starcraft.nxtcrypto.org :D - but actually my idea about this was not based on the numbers of new accounts, I was asking for a report/article about it so I would be able to post it to some important news sites, so it was aimed to the long term goals
can have a google Analytics on nxtcrypto.org for PV statics.

yes,NSR is really not a better choice for promotion.
As I deeply feel,I have to teach every Chinese who is interested in Nxt.
They asked,I answered,it is very tired,so I made some picture and text instructions for them.

If we compare Nxt to Dogecoin, I think we will be ready for such events with integrated wesley's client. But if we want to be compared to Ethereum, we should focus on research and education till summer and then with released FANTASTIC features, we can focus on mainstream. Right now we should spend more resources on development, education, looking for our visions, studying Nxt and looking for university students/teachers/cryptographers to come and join us.
As I know,doge have founded a promotion association company named DOGECOIN GLOBAL ASSOCIATIO COMPANY in China.

Could be an option. Either way we would figure something out before the event to gather some data for use on the event.

I have just discussed this, and at this moment we feel the time is not yet ripe for us to vote on the plan.

Constructive discussion has been had, but we feel we need to flesh this out more.
Let me stress that this delay is because we feel the plan definitely has potential, otherwise there would be a vote which probably just would be "no".

So, in the interest of making this plan doable and making it work, I am hereby extending the discussion period to Monday 14th.
That will be the definite date for the vote.

Until then, I ask all members of the MC to step in and ask questions and work with TeamWealth to make this work or show why it shouldn't be done.

On behalf of the MC,

Damelon

Ok, Will be glad to continue answering any questions anyone may have.

Also, Due to the delay there would not be enough time to get everything organized in time for the end of april/early may. So we could target mid may or almost any time frame and work around the WCS schedule and just invite people who are not competing during that time due to being knocked out of WCS or something else. Just one issue with waiting a long time with crypto currency based events is the value is unstable and if the value would exceed 10,000 USD then we would have to delay it until we could get a license from blizzard which could take anywhere from a week to a month.

http://wcs.battle.net/sc2/en/about/community-tournaments for the restrictions on events if anyone wants to read up on them.

A couple of questions:

1) How will Nxt be promoted during the match, and who is providing text/materials?

2) Can you provide a more detailed breakdown of the budget, including how Nxt prizes will be allocated/awarded?

Re: the timing -- I think the delay is actually a good thing. It is highly likely that wesley's browser-based interface will be integrated with the source at that time, which puts us in a great position to promote it.

1) How will Nxt be promoted during the match, and who is providing text/materials?


The casters will be able to give a pitch about NXT during some downtime ingame when they think it is suitable. There will be short 30 second to one minute videos for NXT
explaining in layman terms what NXT is and some of its more useful features. There will be a logo ingame on all maps of nxt, example here.

http://i.imgur.com/GL3TwQD.jpg

Although i think it would have to be reworked a tiny bit to be more visible on some ingame maps. Probably just a small border around it although im not 100% sure yet.

And also the logo of NXT will be on the overlays the casters will use for there webcams and inbetween games.


2) Can you provide a more detailed breakdown of the budget, including how Nxt prizes will be allocated/awarded?

80,000 NXT

45,000 prizepool

17,500 for casters

10,000 for marketing materials and overlays and other stuff along those lines including translation of the overlay's text into the casters native languages.

5,000 NXT incase other stuff goes over. If not then it would go to me for managing the 16 players making sure that they have all the information needed on what NXT is and when the event is what the rules are when they are going to play. Making sure the casters have all the stuff they would need and all that.




Re: the timing -- I think the delay is actually a good thing. It is highly likely that wesley's browser-based interface will be integrated with the source at that time, which puts us in a great position to promote it.



Possibly, you guys probably have more information on the behind the scenes stuff so yeah.

Thanks!

Here are a few other followups:

Do you know who the casters are?  Will they be folks who have broadcast show matches in the past? 

How will those short videos work -- are scripts provided for the casters, or do they wing it? In other words, how do we prep them?

Apologies for barraging with what may seem like dumb questions but I want to make sure I have a good feel for the whole thing :)

No worries, i would rather answer any questions that you may have then have misinformation in the air.

 Do you know who the casters are? Will they be folks who have broadcast show matches in the past?


No, nothing is set in stone as i want to confirm funding before proceeding with organizing things. I am going to try and see if the casters from the previous showmatch would be available for the english and polish streams but if not then i can find other people.

Yes, they will be experienced in casting events in the past. This will give us an establisbed viewerbase who would know who they are and enjoy there casting style.

How will those short videos work -- are scripts provided for the casters, or do they wing it? In other words, how do we prep them?



I think we have some misunderstanding here. They would be premade video clips they could play inbetween matches or
whenever explaining in a professional way what nxt is, another could explain like the asset exchange. These would be made to be understoof by people who dont know what Cryptocurrencies are at all let alone NXT. They could also be used in other events or whatever not just this event.



I will do my best t explain the basics of NXT to the casters but we will also provide them with in there own language a set of facts they could use to base there arguments off of such as NXT being a few thousand percent more energy efficent then bitcoin and things along those lines. They would not have a script as it would not be natural and not give the best impression. We want what they say to be there own words not words being stuffed into there mouthes which would not fit there talkng style at all or anything. They are professional sports commentators not really professional voice actors who could make it seem natural.

I know that I don't have time for that, so will you (or your team) doing all this?

@Salsacz

http://www.twitch.tv/madals/b/504738865

Wait for the ad to play, or if you have adblock wait for the 30 second timer to end to play it.

21:42 is the first timestamp.

59:25

Not giving direct links to it as twitch has a nasty habit of muting the sound permanently if you link to the vod time directly.


@Damelon.


I will be doing all the promotion for the event with someone else doing the graphic work.


Afterwards as ive said i am not the best person for writing long articles so i will provide a post mortem and then anyone could write an article about it afterwards and i would answer any questions they would ask me if they need more information or anything.

Thanks for that link. I had not actually seen this, so this helps put it in perspective for me :)
It's interesting to see that one of the casters had, of course, only heard of Bitcoin and DOGE  ;D
Would it be possible for us to get the casters some more info? Or are you one of them?
I think we should seriously tone down the amount of info we make them give out. Just the basics, tell them it's a coin that doesn't need GPU to mine etc.
Going in too much won't help as most people won't care, I think. Soundbites over content would do it here.

Yes. Thats one of the things that i learned from the showmatch going into the tournament with to much information at once. Thats why i want to make small bite sized videos explaining one aspect of NXT where only one will be played at a time so they dont get confused with to much information and over the course of the entire tournament they would see each video multiple times so they would have a solid understanding of the basics behind it. Just like what NXT is and some awesome features that other cryptos dont have such as the AE.

I am going to compile a much more extensive list for the casters in the future. This is what i gave them for the showmatch.

Quote
1) NXT is truly decentralized.
It contains a decentralized asset exchange where you can trade cryptocoins or assets completley without needing to involve a thirdparty like Mt. Gox which leads to the problems Mt.Gox is facing. NXT is immune to scams, bankrupcy and the like.

2)
Energy efficient as hell. Can be ran on a raspberry pi charged with solar panels, several thousand percent more energy and cost efficient to Bitcoin.
Also additional fact: Litecoin, the second largest crypto uses graphic cards which is the reason prices of graphic cards have gone up and it's almost impossible to get certain models.
In other words: NXT is a gaming friendly crypto.


3)
True anonymity layer is being developed. This means you'll be able to trade completley anonymously, unlike Bitcoin which is transparent.


They didn't really use 3) at all in there explanations as you can see. I am going to try and compile a more extensive list highlighting basically anything so they have a good base so if someone asks a question in chat or something they are able to answer.



Quote

Yep, There had been a Dogecoin and bitcoin showmatch before the NXT one was put on. Helps to show how it can help get the NXT name out there with people in the esports world not knowing about it until theres an event.

Not exactly sure what you mean by that. The plan is just to give them a list of basically all the major features of NXT with a pretty in depth description of it. If you have any suggestions on how to improve that then i am all ears.

Yeah, that was one thing i was going to work on in the future, them possibly uploading the entire segment not the individual games but the reason we did it like that was to make the people watching on youtube not have to go through 5 minutes of random music or something while we setup everything ingame getting gameheart and all setup, along with some miscellaneous things such as diagnosing why the colors in the first game were the same color for the casters but we got that resolved in a timely fashion.

That exact data i do not have, but it was around 500-600 during the first ad and 1200-1300 for the second one. This is based on me glancing over at the view counter when it was live and remembering it so it may be a tiny bit off.

Edit, Also there was the polish stream which averaged 400 viewers the entire time, i had given him some basic stuff but there was not time to get him everything as he literally volunteered 3 hours before we went live. He said he gave a pitch but there are no vod's of that stream and even if they were i dont speak polish so i would have no idea what was said.

Votes take 24 hours, so it ended just a few hours ago :)

Your proposal has been approved, as outlined below:

https://nxtforum.org/marketing-committee/starcraft-2-event/

The breakdown of the funding is as follows:

80,000 NXT TOTAL

45,000 prizepool

17,500 for casters

10,000 for marketing materials and overlays and other stuff along those lines including translation of the overlay's text into the casters native languages.

5,000 NXT incase other stuff goes over. If not then it would go to me for managing the 16 players making sure that they have all the information needed on what NXT is and when the event is what the rules are when they are going to play. Making sure the casters have all the stuff they would need and all that.

Somehow he missed 2,500 Nxt in these  ;)

Ok, sorry about that then. Will get organizing it all later today then :) Thanks!

and opps on the 2500 unaccounted for, will put it to the prizepool probably.

Will keep this thread up to date with any relevant information, outside of the player list in order to prevent that from getting out before we announce it to the sc community.

I have asked neer.g, our treasurer, to transfer 80,000 Nxt to account no. 5421497365368793255.
Could you let us know when it arrives?

If you need any help, also please let us know!

Just a quick update. Right now shooting for May 20th and 21st for the event, working on getting all the invites ready to send and then we can get started on the promotional images for them, getting ready for the announcement and all.

Update, planning around WCS has been more difficult then i thought due to them announcing there dates not until very recently. There is an open slot on the 26th but WCS europe is on the 27th so we would have to do it all in one day vs the planned two days that we were planning on if we decide to go for that one, Which would not be a problem for the competition of it but it would be a problem with reduced exposure for NXT. Beyond that there still is not any news for dates for june for WCS.

We do have some players who depending on the date would be able to compete, but once again we have to find a date without any conflicts where we could do it.


Just a quick update to show that im not dead or anything. Going to be working on the advertisements for NXT some more later today and hopefully will have something to show from that soon. I have been busy the past week with some stuff in my life so i haven't gotten a chance to work on them.

The Nxt Marketing Committee funded this project with 80,000Nxt on April 16, 2014.

There have been no updates on this project since May 9.

What is its status?

I apologize about the lack of updates, up until recently there has been little change in the status that would be worth posting.

The date for the tournament is July 27th-29th. Instead of the planned 2 day event it was extended to 3 days in order to prevent a 14+ hour day of starcraft play, Which would just serve to make the casters tired and overall reduce the quality of everything involved.

I will post a more in depth update in a few days, Once again i apologize about the lack of updates but the primary reason for there being no updates was that there was no updates to be had as the world championship series and other events such as Dreamhack, MLG, and the homestory cup were taking up all available broadcast time slots and its basically suicide to go up against them for viewership.

@JoeFox: good work on the chasing up MC funded projects, mate. Nice one...

I should point out here that TW has leased me the forging rights to the 80,000 NXT, so I can confirm that its safe and being useful right now.

There will be announcements as stated earlier on in this thread on teamliquid.net and on reddit.com/r/starcraft, Along with a annoucement on this forum. The players will be announced in multiple waves in order to maximize exposure.

There is a slight possibility of getting advertising specific to /r/starcraft or teamliquid.net but i am not convinced either would provide a worth while ROI in terms of viewership.


@JoeFox: good work on the chasing up MC funded projects, mate. Nice one...

I want to add onto this, Before it was leased to evildave it was leased to the public pool operated by forkedchain. It was leased for about 2 weeks mostly as a curiosity from me as to how much could actually be gained from forging with a decent amount of NXT. The amount forged equaled 18.23 NXT. Basically what was gained from that was the transaction fees being covered along with my curiosity being answered.

In order to provide further verification that i still control the funds, Have a token.

The main stream will be casted in english from madals and probably pengwin still not 100% sure on if pengwin is going to be around, These two previously casted the 25,000 NXT showmatch Ret and Whitera so they have some history with NXT. With potentially a dedicated observer(Basically ingame camera man) which would also handle production of the stream. I am still looking into options for forgein language casters which would be available during the event.

About as much as this entire events budget, Even then he picks and chooses as starcrafts a side project and its not like he is short on cash or anything.

Quite a bit can be done when your working 100% for free and doing everything yourself really behind the scenes :) Anyway if all goes to plan and it gets the viewership i am expecting, It should be a freaking bargain for the cost.

Just a quick update, Sorry that i haven't put in a huge update like i said i would.

The current status is it is still on track for the 27th to the 29th, announcement was planned for tomorrow but it will have to be delayed by a bit in order to allow for the players to actually confirm if they will be there or not and allow graphics to be made, Which leads into another massive issue.

This month has been completely disastrous for the players trust in NXT, When the majority of the players first were contacted NXT was around 12000-13000 satoshis, It is currently sitting at just under 7000 satoshis so consequently the prize pool's value has henceforth halved and as a side effect a few of the bigger name players dropped out as they no longer felt it would be worth there time with the uncertainty in there minds that wondered if NXT would continue its slow decline or if it would eventually climb out of the decline and climb again. Remember these are not investors or any people into crypto currencies at all really, They do not know of the volatility of it. These are mostly normal people some more technology inclined then others.

So basically thats where it stands, I'm still going to try to hit the target date of 27th-29th but i can no longer guarantee 80,000-100,000+ unique viewers learning of NXT over the 3 day period due to losing those players.

Ok i thought i had updated this...Apologies..

As you may of noticed, there has been no announcement and that is due to it being delayed to mid august as there was little interest from players and some other factors. It will happen between the round of 32 and round of 16 of the world championship series. This will be the last delay, If it fails this time then it will be cancelled and the marketing committee will be refunded the unspent portion of NXT.

Now for some good news, I do have 6 players confirmed for mid august with 4 more as a 90% with another 6 people waiting to be confirmed, The level of competition will be much higher then what i was able to get for july 27th-29th which will hopefully help with the viewership therefore the RoI.

Also, do you think this is a good description for the casters on how the send system works?


After hitting send, a cryptographic signature is generated automatically containing your account id, Recieving account id, Amount you want to transfer, And the time. The cryptographic signature is able to be independently verified by anyone with the NXT software. It is then transmitted trough the NXT network to be bundled together with all other unconfirmed transactions in a form for long term storage known as a block, A block contains the cryptographic signatures of all of the transactions and also has an identifying signature, The block is then transmitted to the forgers peers which independently verify it and all transactions are valid then passes it on until the entire NXT network accepts it.
