OLD NXT Pub Thread - LOCKED
March 23, 2014, 09:07:36 pm

First post!

This page is intended to be page 2501 of the Pub thread from Bitcointalk:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=345619.49940

I'm gonna try and get 2Kool4Skewl to lock the thread over there and post a link to this one...

Long live the pub thread!!!! Only HERE!!!

For continuity, here's 2Kool's dara from post 1 / page 1 of the "original" Pub thread over on Bitcointalk:



Website      Twitter      Facebook      Reddit

Nxt China      Weibo      VK


"One of the reasons Nxt is groundbreaking is because it gives the economy back to the people and re-establishes them as their own sovereigns over their destiny.  An economy is an expression of a political ideology.  Do not mistake us as just another cryptocurrency.  We are a movement."

-----------------------------------------



-----------------------------------------

Nxt :: descendant of Bitcoin

Nxt uses brand new software.  It’s not a fork of Bitcoin's source code.

Nxt is the first 100% Proof-of-Stake (PoS) currency.  Coins are earned solely by charging transaction fees.  Unlike other currencies with PoS mining, Nxt's PoS mining does not cause monetary inflation.  The total amount of Nxt in circulation is 1 billion.  Nxt is resistant to +90% attacks via its transparent forging algorithm.

Nxt improves different features of Bitcoin, removes some disadvantages (e.g. bloated blockchain) and resolves a big environmental issue.  Time between blocks is one minute.  This increases the rate of orphaned blocks, but makes it more convenient for the users.

Nxt doesn’t use so-called “scripts” aka predicates.  This simplifies and accelerates transaction processing.  Advanced features like multisig will be created on top of the core as 3rd party services.

Nxt is routable through Tor and I2P anonymous networks.

Nxt Clients

ONLINE WALLET

The following website offers an ultra-simple online wallet for new users.

https://wallet.mynxt.info

CAUTION: Wallet use is only recommended for an account containing relatively small amounts of NXT you are prepared to lose.  For long-term storage of large amounts of NXT, use of client software on an isolated computer under your complete control is highly recommended.

NXTclients.org has a comprehensive list of the clients available for NXT.

Nxt Development

We invite skilled Java programmers to join NXT core development team. You’ll get access to complete NXT source code. We need 2-3 developers now. If you are interested, please PM user Come-from-Beyond on bitcointalk.org with your e-mail address and your Java experience (very short description). We’ll check your forum posts to make sure that you’re not a troll and contact you via e-mail. If you don’t get my reply by the 10th of January then wait for the next round when we ask for more participants.

Please Run a Nxt Node

If you can run a Nxt node, it will help us stabilize and secure the network.  If you have invested in Nxt, it is beneficial to you to run a VPS to help to secure the Nxt network.  Hallmarking your node helps the network, but is not necessary.

Download  NRS

NRS is the Nxt Reference Software.  It includes a web client.  The latest version can always be found here:

https://nxtforum.org/nrs-releases/

Source code was released on Jan 3rd, 2014.  The fifth anniversary of bitcoin's genesis block.

Nxt Software Change Log

BE SURE TO CHECK THE SHA256 HASH OF YOUR DOWNLOAD!

If you're running GNU/Linux, the program sha256sum is standard on most versions of the OS.  Use the sha256sum command:
'sha256sum PATH_TO_NXT_DOWNLOAD'

If you're running OS X, a SHA-256 can be calculated using the openssl command in an open terminal (the terminal is located in /Applications/Utilities).
'openssl sha256 PATH_TO_NXT_DOWNLOAD'

If you're running Windows, use an online calculator to calculate the sha256 hash.  Upload the Nxt.zip file you downloaded, when the website asks for a file.

Installation Instructions

How to Install Nxt Client w/ Pictures

Ubuntu/Debian
1 - Download and Install Java                     'sudo aptitude install openjdk-7-jre'
2 - Unzip 'nxt.zip'                                        'unzip nxt.zip'
3 - Go to your Nxt Directory                        'cd nxt'
4 - Start Nxt                                                 'java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -jar start.jar'

Windows
1 - Download and Install Java                      Oracle JDK 7
2 - Unzip 'nxt.zip'
3 - Go to your Nxt Directory                        'cd C:/PATH_TO_NXT_FOLDER'
4 - Start Nxt                                                 'java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -jar start.jar'

Mac
1 - Download and Install Java                     Oracle JDK 7
2 - Unzip 'nxt.zip'
3 - Go to your Nxt Directory                        'cd nxt'
4 - Start Nxt                                                 'java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -jar start.jar'

Open Nxt Client
- Open your browser and go to http://localhost:7874
- Click the "Lock" icon in the upper left corner to unlock your account.
- Enter your passphrase or if you don't have an account, enter your new passphrase.  Make sure you use a very random, complex password of at least 80 characters.  You can use 0-1, a-z, A-Z, special and national characters.

Security Tips

- Do NOT use the passphrase for your Nxt account on a VPS client.  Only use your Nxt passphrase on a local Nxt client.  Even if you connect to your VPS securely via SSH, you are still not safe because all VPSs have backdoors.
- 7874 (tcp) is used for P2P communication.
- 7875 (tcp) is used for the http web client.
- 7876 (tcp) is used for API commands.

I don'T think lock is good. Simply try and suggest to move technical discussion over here.

Btw. where is the use of have such a big thread here? :D

We shouldn't say from page 2500+ this is the new thread. We should use the whole forum for discussions.

InfCom spokesperson hat on:

Bounty ANN:: Papers on NXT network security requested.

The Infrastructure Committee (infCom) would like to put out a public request for papers on aspects of NXT network security.
http://107.170.117.237/index.php?topic=49.msg111#msg111

The papers should address the following from both a general P2P and a specifically NXT perspective:

  An analysis/description of the NXT P2P network architecture and the communication within.

  Attacks that could be conducted on Nxt infrastructure (the NXTwork), identification methods and countermeasures that could be used against them,   including : - DoS - Sybil - Poisoning - Eclipse - Tracking - Node Spoofing and any other relevant attack vectors.


InfCom will be rewarding two bounties for submitted papers, the bounties will be somewhere between 10-20,000 NXT per paper.

Deadline is 2 months from now, 24 May 2014.

If you have any questions, post on this thread:
http://107.170.117.237/index.php/topic,102.0.html
 or contact one of the InfCom members via PM.

As inspiration:
http://world-comp.org/p2012/SAM9754.pdf
   

Still on page one, and we're down to business already.....
