What is this book ?

Initially published as a pdf, it will be the first multi-lingual, tangible symbol of the real-life, global, transformative potential of Nxt.

More specifically, co-published by Nxter Magazine and Plaisir d’histoire (Ludom), it will be the printed (paper) version of the free pdf-book that was published to celebrate Nxt's second birthday. It contains articles written in English, Russian, French, Spanish and Chinese.

In summary, our goals are:
  • Produce a high quality, limited edition of the English language version of the book in printed (paper) form.
  • Translate the book into each of the other 4 languages depending on demand and to make them available initially as pdfs.
  • Produce paper versions of the book in each of the other 4 languages either as 'Print-on-Demand' or in high quality, again depending on demand.

See below for further details.

Why we need your support

This project needs support from the community: morally and financially.

Morally: we need your support to help sustain our motivation. If our project doesn’t have the community's support, we have no reason to continue working on it.

Financially: we need your support so that we can create high quality publications of the book in paper form, starting with the English Language version.

Each copy sold during the campaign will be numbered and signed by Ludom on behalf of Nxter Magazine and Plaisir d’histoire.

Over time, as Nxt becomes established as a financial ecosystem, it is anticipated that the book will become an increasingly valuable collector's item.

Our projected costs are:

  • Printing cost: 200 books
        (150mm x 220 mm, 136 + 4 pages,
        Interior B/W 90gr Premium,
        Couverture Quadri 235gr Integra Antalis,
        Spine Sewn and glued).
  • Shipping cost, taxes and custom fees (30% of the book's price).
  • Miscellaneous costs: ISBN and Swiss National Library registration of the books, shipping of the books for the contributors (writers, editors and translators).

Plaisir d’histoire will pay the FIAT bills but wants to be reimbursed in crypto-currencies, assets and MScoins.

Nxter Magazine and Plaisir d’histoire need 200’000 NXT or its equivalent in value in other crytocurrencies, assets or MScoins to produce and deliver a high quality paper version of the book in English.

How to buy with other assets or MScoins

We can accept other crypto-value. For more details, send a message to ludom@nxter.org or an arbitrary message to NXT-DE5P-4A5T-6SHU-7FHCV.

How to buy with FIAT and Bitcoin wallets?

It's possible to buy with FIAT, you can send the money to the bank account (SEPA) with a Nxt address (I send you the token) or your physical address (I send you directly the book when it's ready). For your information: 1$=0.90€, 1 book = 18€
You can buy with Bitcoin in the same way.

How do you send the books

When the e-books are ready, we will send an encrypted message to the asset holders with instructions how to download the e-books.

When the books have been printed, a confirmatory message to that effect will be sent to the assets/MScoin holders. As soon as each holder sends us back the token with their physical address, Plaisir d’histoire will send the book(s) to their address.

Where any part of the campaign fails to meets its objectives, we will buy back the tokens concerned.

Free donations and account leasing

Feel free to make donation to the account NXT-DE5P-4A5T-6SHU-7FHCV. We accept everything:

What are the goals

The main goal: English paper book

We want to publish a really good quality book in English. We don’t want to use the print-on-demand solution because the print quality is bad and the profits are tiny.

To print 200 books, we need 200’000 NXT of crypto-value. All the NXT, assets and the MScoins are in the “First Nxt book” account NXT-DE5P-4A5T-6SHU-7FHCV.

The campaign will end on the 5th January 2015.

Updates of the estimated value of the 'First Nxt book' portfolio will be published regularly on Nxtforum.

300k NXT: Translation

UPDATE:

If we reach 300'000 NXT, we translate the book in 4 languages:
- Russian
- French
- Chinese
- Spanish

The translated Version will be proposed as e-book and Print-on-Demand.

400k NXT: Special cover with a dedicated drawing

If we reach 400'000 NXT, we'll hire an artist to make a special cover for the book.

FAQ

Who am I?

My name is Lionel Jeannerat ('Ludom' on Nxtforum). I’m a Swiss. I work freelance in History and game design and carry on a publishing business under the name Plaisir d’histoire. I am responsible for managing this campaign and the logistical aspects of publishing the book.  My website is: http://www.plaisirdhistoire.ch/

I’m working with the core team of Nxter.org, the Nxter Magazine. They are responsible for editing and translating the book. Their website is: http://nxter.org/

We are all well-known and, we like to think, trusted in the Nxt community.

What will we do if the goals are not reached?

First, we'll all be very disappointed!

Second, I’ll rebuy every asset that can’t be exchanged with the promised product.

The articles are already available to read, so why should you support us?

Yes, it’s true. You can already read the articles for free, at least in their original languages: http://nxter.org/nxt-2nd-birthday/

But our ambition extends beyond this campaign.

Our future projects

Nxter Magazine and Plaisir d’histoire want to build new projects on the Nxt platform. This campaign is the first of the projects we are planning based on the Nxt platform.

The Nxt marketing

An excellent, beautifully produced book about Nxt is a great tool for Nxt marketing. A PDF or a cheap Print-on-demand Book is a poor substitute for that. And, if we have books in other languages, we can of course reach more people.

We want to print more books than are sold during the campaign. Having a good stock available in each language will enable us to market it, and therefore Nxt, more effectively.

To that end we want to increase the book's distribution via online and physicals books shops.

A new example of the use of Nxt platform

As you can see, we will be using every feature of Nxt in our crowdfunding campaign. Nxt needs its crowdfunding platform to be used in as many different ways as possible in order for its flexibility and effectiveness to be fully demonstrated. The success of our campaign will provide a further demonstration of the power of Nxt.

If the campaign is as big a success as you envisage, what will you do with the extra funding?

We won't make any profit until the book is published in each language: English, French, Chinese, Russian and Spanish. And we need 200k + 150k + 150k + 150k + 150k NXT = 800k NXT for that.

If we funded more than that, it would mean that we would have sold more and the shipping cost would therefore be bigger too. Firstly, I would pay the extra cost with the extra funds.

After that, the surplus (i.e. the profit) would be shared between the contributors (1/3), Nxter.org (1/3) and Plaisir d’histoire (1/3). This revenue would be used to reward the writers, editors and translators, and to prefund our future projects on the Nxt platform.

What will we do with the funding?

Plaisir d’histoire will pay every FIAT bill of the project. If the costs don’t exceed what is planned, there is no reason to sell any of the fund.

Plaisir d'histoire pays in FIAT and receive the equivalence NXT and/or assets, that's it.

If there is good liquidity to sell them, I’ll do it during and after the campaign. But we don't want to crash the price of any token. If people want to buy some of our assets, they can propose their price.  This would be another good way to help us meet our objectives and therefore help Nxt. Contact me at ludom@nxter.org

I issued 6 assets + 3 MScoin + 2 alias. The central account of the crowdfunding is  NXT-DE5P-4A5T-6SHU-7FHCV

If Nxt businesses or people want more information before the launch, I can send the Announcement in privacy if a partnership with them is possible.

I'm totally open in original partnerships. The goal of this crowdfunding is marketing and experiment "new solutions" for the crowdfunding on Nxt.

Roberto (DeBuNe) has just sent me "Nxt: a revolutionary tool for businesses", a chapter which will be incorporated in the book.

What a vision.
We need people to know about Nxt.

A great idea! One suggestion: Since most NXTers come from Germany, which is the country with the most crypto people after USA, a German translation would be a much higher priority than Spanish, French and Russian IMO. We also need a German article ;)

Looking forward to Capodieci's article.

Can you translate the articles or get a team of translators together?

Articles are always welcome!

McFly has translated most of the basic nxter.org content, so it wouldn't take much to finish a launch a German NXTER.ORG. You can run it, Agela  :)
