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:

NXT, assets, MScoins, alias, nice messages and anything-else you like.

During the crowdfunding campaign, the account will be forging all the time, the forging revenues will be part of the funding. You can lease your account to support the project.

Special rewards

Alias system

On Nxtforum, we’ll organise an auction to sell a special alias: SurpriseAlias. The winner of the auction will buy the alias on the Nxt platform.

This alias will be printed in large font on the first pages under the words: “Discover the link of SupriseAlias”.

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  :)

Thank you to all the subscribers.

2) Gute Nachricht für die Deutsche. Eine deutsche Übersetzung ist jetzt möglich (danke Durerus).

Die regeln sind die gleiche wie die anderen Sprachen: 20 e-books, wir handeln die Übersetzung, 50 e-books, die Papierbücher wird eine neue Möglichkeit.

The asset for the German e-book is ebookger, ID 15328472663107546217

Jetzt warte ich über die Deutsche/Österreicher/Schweizer. Ist die deutsch Übersetzung wichtiger als de französische?

Tout ceci reste à prouver!

We need funding for :
- The printing costs (~600 €)
- The shipping cost to send the book to the subscribers (~30% of the book price)
- There is also different little costs: registration of the book (ISBN and National library) and sending books to the contributors. (~100 €)

The writers, editors, publisher and translators work for free. They only receive a free book for their work.

We can publish the book in "Print-on-demand" but the printing cost are bigger: 7€ per book
If we print it ourself, it's 3€ per book. And the quality is much much better.

If we sold the book on lulu.com or amazon.com at 20$, the profit is only ~8$. And the buyer should pay shipping costs.

The goal for us is to pre-sale the books to choose the best solution for the buyers, for us and for Nxt. But we need money to cover the initial costs.

Our crowdfunding campaign is as a kickstarter campaign. Much examples:
https://www.kickstarter.com/discover/categories/publishing?ref=discover_index

If you have more question, I'm in your disposition.

BIG UPDATE

1) The price are adapted.

2) The announcement is translated in Chinese and Spanish (thanks NxtChina, jose and rubenbc)

3) I open the possibility to buy with FIAT and BTC (outside the Nxt Platform)

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.

Bank account:
Name: Lionel Jeannerat, 2000 Neuchâtel (Switzerland)
IBAN: CH84 0900 0000 9167 2865 9
BIC: POFICHBEXXX

BTC address:
14ZsKzU1ktjUui27fYZzRLXgkAF8JqsZdP

4) I can't run a full node of Nxt on my computer with Windows. I use the SuperNET lite client. I can't use for the moment FreeMarket.
Sorry. It'll take more days.

5) We have already 25'797 NXT. It's almost 13%.

We receive 999 NXT of donation.
Sold:
4 e-books in English
1 in French
3 in Russian

7 papers books in English

Thanks for your support.

The estimation of the donation is 3'000 NXT.

40'097 NXT = 20%

Edit: sorry I was tired, and the donation was 30 and not 60 assets. It's already a lot. Thanks lopalcar.

@lopalcar : for sure, the price of the book is really cheap. We don't ask for charity, we propose a good deal. It's a win-win proposition. 20$ for a book with the shipping offer is a good deal.

@EvilDave : If TNSSE want to participate, we can talk together about. We are open to create special deals with special supporters. TNSSE is enough special for us  ;D

We appreciate the personal support too. And if you want to buy two books, don't forget that if you buy three, you have a very interesting discount!!!  ;)

Sorry the up-date is for tomorrow. I have some problems with FreeMarket and with my Christmas shopping.

The price of one book will be 3050 NXT tomorrow (if you want to save 50 NXT, you can buy now).

This crowdfunding campaign is a good experience. I can see a lot of technical problems and I'll have much proposition to improve Nxt and FreeMarket for such a crowdfunding campaign.

Update:

The situation is critical for the project. We have only one week (until the 5th) to reach our goal of 200k NXT.

We really need your support if you want the publication of a valuable book about the Nxt ecosystem.

- 58'856 NXT + 9000 NXT in assets (NXTP and HdgFundNXT) = 67856 NXT = 34%

- The prices are updated. Normally the price will not change until the end of the crowdfunding.

- The auction continues for the SurpriseAlias : https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/%281st-nxt-book%29-'surprisealias'-auction/

Re: [Crowdfunding] The first book about Nxt - 48.6%
« Reply #55 on: December 29, 2015, 01:13:55 pm »

The campaign wake up:

97'236 NXT = 48.6%

Thanks a lot to the supporters!!!

@rubenaco: Don't worry, everything is possible. Lot of subscribers wait the last days to support.
We have to mobilise the community but I really want to have them "because they want to buy our great book" as "because we are poor little NXTers".

A crowdfunding is not only about funding a project. It's a market research too. If nobody in the community sees the utility of a book, they can't be wrong. We don't have to be angry about the "reality".

The important thing for me is the symbolic support of the community. Financially, this is not a big deal (the budget is very very low for such a publication) and there is Print-on-demand solutions if we fail.

But I want to explain what is the advantages for the buyers and Nxt if this CF campaign is a success:

For the buyer:
- You have a better quality of the book (for every buyers)
- You have a numbered product that can become collector (for the CF buyers only)
- It's cheaper for the CF buyers.
If you buy right now:
1 book at 20$
3 books at 50$
10 books at 150$
50 books at 500$
Shipping is offer!!!

If you buy later:
1 book at 20$ + shipping costs (~5$) = ~25$ per book
(same price and shipping costs but with lower quality if we need to publish it with Print-on-demand)

For Nxt:
- The success of the campaign will motive the authors, editors and translators of the website Nxter.org, because they feel supported by the community.
- Nxt Foundation or other Nxt evangelists can use the book as a marketing tool. We'll be one of the rare crypto with a book publication.
- You make the book project more profitable in the long-term (in comparison of the PoD solution). It's not more profitable because you pay more, it's profitable because we optimise the charges. There is two consequences:
1) The authors can be better paid.
2) Nxter.org and Plaisir d'histoire will have more funds to reinvest in the publication of new books. This book is the "first"!!! We want to publish more and, why not, launch a collection.
- We have a respectable stock of books. This situation gives new possibilities:
1) Make a deal with book shops (IRL and on-line) for a better diffusion and visibility. If we publish PoD, we can't have a good visibility for the book.
2) We can reach new audiences (Decentralisation Fans, cryptocurrencies Fans...). This CF campaign is only the beginning.

As you can see, the benefit of the project is for us and for you.

I'm very very grateful for the donations, it helps a lot! But I'm really happy when we sell a book, because it's a double support for our project: we receive founds and interest about the book.

We don't ask for charity. We ask for a "win win" support.

Just to give this book publication a little kick up the bestseller lists, I've made a 50 book / 77,500 NXT purchase on behalf of the NXT Foundation and Tennessee.
Apart from being a damn good read, these books will make very useful promotional gifts, and so the NXT Foundation will be distributing our 50 copies at meetups and conferences over the next year, as well as sending copies out to selected individuals.

This means that Ludom/Apenzl now need only to raise another 25% of their funding goal, so let's get those presses rolling.
Buy books....!

Good news ! We reach 200'987 NXT!!!

The book will be printed!!!

Before to update the first post (tomorrow), I want to announce a big change in the secondary goals.
We abandon the idea to print the translations in "premium" version as in English.

But we propose 2 new secondary goals:
- 300k NXT: we translate the book in French, Spanish, Chinese and Russian.

This translation will be proposed as e-book and Print-on-Demand Paper-books.

- 400k NXT: a special cover for the book with a special dedicated drawing

The funding continue to grow! We are at 209'045 NXT!!!

We receive a big support from the Russian community with a big buy of 16 ebookrus. We have already sold 20 e-books in Russian. It means that we'll translate in Russian.

Some statistics of the Crowdfunding:
- 1 x 50 books
- 2 x 10 books
- 15 x 1 book
- 20 x e-book in Russian
- 5 x e-book in English
- 1 x e-book in French
- 0 x e-book in Chinese and Spanish
- 3 life subscriptions for the Nxter.org e-books
- ~16'000 NXT (or assets) as donation

 Thanks so much!

Right now, we need 91k NXT. It's really possible:
- 20 books + 5 life subscription + 22 e-books

And we can always hope for an Advertiser: 31k NXT for the little one and 93k NXT for the big one.

Let's begin 2016 with a big success!

BUMP this thread, for an update.

If you've pre-ordered the book and just can't hold your breath, nxter.slack.com #nxt-book would a place for you to join, as the book development is documented in realtime there. PM me for an invite. Don't be shy. ;)

Original plan was for the 1st Nxt book to be released in late February, so yup, we're late.

Brief summary:

Ludom is the publisher, no changes there.
All "foreign" chapters have been translated into English, Oldnbold has proofread, a few clarifications are needed.
Only translation missing is the French. It was translated, lost, and is now being re-translated. It'll be done by next week. Woo-hoo.

The cover design and book layouter is "Shee", a designer who is not (currently) a part of the Nxt community. She did the design for the free e-book too: http://nxter.org/nxt-2nd-birthday/ 

And that's that.

Well I could add that I've, being the current NXTER.ORG octopus, had to take a freelance job. This has slowed things down.
My contract ends on the 1st of April. Then I'd like to return my focus to Nxt.

Until then... I'd really appreciate some community input before we wrap up the Nxt book release.

1. Atm, the title of the book is:
Snapshot 1 - Nxt, unsurpassable blockchain solutions

Matter is, this book is NOT about the Nxt 2.0 snapshot. Next one is. But this book IS the first snapshot of the Nxt community + tech.

Houston, do we have a problem?

Do YOU like this title of the book or do you have another proposal?

Hello everybody,

I'm sorry for my silence this last weeks. I was very busy in my IRL job. I had to finish a big game project and I couldn't take time for Nxt and crypto.
But right now, the rush is over. I'm back and we'll work to make the book. It's an important project for me. I want to give back all what Nxt gives to me.

Hi,
Sorry, somehow I missed  this thread. It 's nice to read that your project was succesfull.
Any new initiatives? Translations in other languages? Or perhaps - with the development of NXT 2.0 - an new edition?
We need people like you to promote NXT to the world.

Best regards

we're updating the book so it covers the latest Nxt 2.0 design too. I found that necessary. When the English book version is finalised, we'll translate.

We need people like you to promote NXT to the world.

Yup, we need everybody. :)

We're running an independent bounty-program via AE, if you're interested in helping, please make contact ;)

When is the estimated date for the book to be ready?

Would be nice to have it soon, as Nxt/Ardor are quite HOT in this moment...

Hi Capodieci,

You're right. It's the right moment for the book.
I'm very uncomfortable with the situation:
- Apenzl and oldnbold work hard on the book since 2015. But Apenzl wanted to change a lot of text: some where not good/long enough and the divorce with SuperNET and Sasha (Waves) made the text obsoletes.
We are very late with our projections. I'm so sorry about it.

But In the last news, Apenzl said to me that the book is ready soon. But right now, Apenzl is in holidays until 21st or 22nd July.
And after that, I also have holidays (with bad internet connection)...

I can't do anything without the final PDF of the book. And I have to read it before to print it (I don't publish anything without reading it).

So, if Apenzl can send me the book before my holidays (hopefully this week-end), I can prepare every thing for the printing of the book. I read it during my holidays. I can organize to receive the books in my office direct after my holidays and I send it as fast I can.
The best planing can only reach the second half of August for sending the books.

It depends a lot of the finalisation of the printing PDF from Nxter Magazine team.

***

But I can already organise the book swap!

I'll create a new account where it's possible to send the pbookeng assets and TENGB/XENGB/LENGB MScoins with a postal address.

I can already prepare the sending packs and don't losing time.
More information this week.

Thank you Rubenaco and Ludom for the updates.

Well, beside the delivery of the printed book to the supporters, it would be amazing if - and I am sure the supporter will not mind - the book was also distributed/promoted via mass media (A link in Amazon with the book at 50 cents?) with each article that talks about Nxt/Ardor. People is curious, and they usually want to know more.

I am not sure how the book is structured, but history is what it is, so maybe some of the past can be told even if it is no more relevant for the present?

Something I am working on since a few months (now needs updates after the DAO tragedy) on Smart Transactions, that needs heavy editing, yet can be of help for the book:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/11HHm5YPNUA0dmYHAiVXhgnGgYfE5vd3ksR0mXv_uvCE/edit?usp=sharing

Anything else I can do to help, let me know.

Yes, and a good idea. Amazon (and Kindle) has always been on the map, so is Apples's Bookstore, B&N, etc.

50 cents? Well, maybe... My thought was: a free LE to promote Nxt + Ardor, and a Full Edition @ a higher price than 50 cent.  :)

Yes. But history IS relevant, IMHO, history rocks, and all those chapters are in place.

Thanks. I've implemented some, and will send you the article to proof check.
I will also send you your original article, which I have fiddled with a little - still, I've only added quotes from yourself to it. ;)

Same goes for everyone else who have contributed directly to the book; I have now edited and updated the largest part of it, structured it, and oldnbold is in the process of proofreading and adding his editorial comments and questions; I will send you your articles for approval within the next few days.

To make the book serve both our history and Ardor better (as reference, because Ardor is build on Nxt), I decided to add "easy-to-understand" descriptions of each Nxt feature to the book. Man, that does take a non-coder at least a few days per feature. Plus, I've added a couple of new chapters + over a hundred footnotes.

I have a date with Shee (who is the designer of the cover and the free Nxt 2nd anniversary e-book) on Aug 23, where we will finalise the book; it hurts to work for free, so I've had to set up all the content as well, even though InDesign is not exactly my field of expertise.

I can already organise the book swap!

I'll create a new account where it's possible to send the pbookeng assets and TENGB/XENGB/LENGB MScoins with a postal address.
Please do it now. :)

ALL well :)
Yes.
Thanks Ludom & RubénBC for answering for me.

I'm so sorry for letting you all wait, and for the radio silence, but I am confident that it will turn out to be worth it. The book is going to be great.

Best,
a

PS. And after that, nxter.org is up for a re-design.  ;D

Why not consider distributing via Blurb? At least that's the only one I know... As far as I understood it's like the cdbaby of books.
