Quote
Today at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco, we announced the general availability of One Touch™ mobile payments with PayPal, the industry’s first and only single touch payment experience on iOS (and in public beta on Android). One Touch with Venmo is also in public beta on iOS and Android. In addition we announced that Braintree has partnered with Coinbase to offer a trusted and secure way for people to pay with bitcoin across their favorite apps in the coming months.

With Braintree’s new partnership with Coinbase, merchants and developers that have integrated with Braintree’s v.zero SDK will be able to easily begin accepting bitcoin in the coming months, enabling their customers to pay with the alternative currency across their favorite apps.

Nice nice, now lets tell them about NXT ;)

Will more persons using Bitcoin bring the price up or down?
Same question for NXT. Does it rise and fall with Bitcoin?
What do people think?

I expect that over the next few months more companies will follow Braintree/eBay/PayPal and adopt Bitcoin.

More people using Bitcoin should bring the price up, because the distribution of the coins should be a better one. But also, the coins could be flowing into a hands of few which start to cash out, to receive more fiat money. Anyway, a greater usage should make it more worthy.
This at least is what I think.

Same would count for NXT. Currently NXT is pretty bound to the Bitcoin price, the aim is to get apart from this. One of the reason for the creation of NXT was because miner have a big incentive to generate Bitcoin and cash out in fiat money, this is what I understood of BCNext message. So NXTer try to get more NXT but not cash em out immediately for Dollar/Euro/CNY or whatever.

I see the concept currently working. I never heard of NXTer wanting to cash out as soon as possible. There are investors that invest big amounts to cash out later. They are important now but what NXT needs is NXTer that hold on to NXT. Start to use them on the Asset Exchange, Marketplace etc but not to get fiat money. And what is very good, is that the oeconomy of NXT works awesome. People are investing their NXT in the Asset Exchange, the Marketplace, messages etc., creating a good volume within NXT itself. It is going into a good direction =)
