Nxt General Discussion / Breaking: Satoshi Nakamoto's Email was Hacked!
« on: September 09, 2014, 09:11:29 am »
Hacker Hijacks Satoshi Nakamoto’s Email, Threatens to Reveal All

The bitcoin world is abuzz with speculation that some of Satoshi Nakamoto’s online accounts have been compromised, concerned a hacker could potentially access information concerning the bitcoin creator’s true identity or use the accounts to defraud key members of the bitcoin community.

Wired reported that the alleged hacker had posted on Pastebin that they would reveal key details of Nakamoto’s identity if 25 BTC were sent to a specified bitcoin address. While small donations have been coming in, the address still appears well short of that mark.

Administrator ‘theymos’ of the Bitcoin Talk forum (aka Michael Marquardt) a key figure in bitcoin’s online community, posted just after 9pm (BST) on 8th September, alerting the community of the development, writing...  continued

Nxt General Discussion / Is it Time to Re-educate the People?
« on: August 25, 2014, 11:05:59 am »
From BCNext: 

"Regarding NXT as coins: NXTs are not coins... or at least the creator of Nxt didn't want them to be seen as coins. They are tokens that grant privileges for supporting Nxt.
Deflation is not much better than inflation. "Real" coins should be created on top of Nxt, and be issued in quantities that keep their value constant. BCNext understands that this is very arguable. The community should decide if it wants to follow the path showed by him, or stick to the Bitcoin legacy of an unchangeable supply of coins with which people hope to become rich by doing nothing."

If the people finally understand it the way BCNext wanted us to, maybe the people might not feel as iffy getting into Nxt as they do now?


Amagi Metals, an online dealer in precious metals and coins, announced today that they will stop taking US dollars for payment at the end of 2016.

Since the dollar was decoupled from gold in 1971, it has lost 97% of its value compared to the yellow metal and 83% of its domestic purchasing power, and the trend shows no signs of stopping. Both investors and foreign governments have begun to lose confidence in the dollar’s future…and so has Amagi Metals. Thus, Amagi has planned that by the end of 2016, the company will no longer accept US dollars or other “fiat” currencies. Instead, Amagi plans to be trading exclusively in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.

From its beginnings in 2010, Amagi Metals has advocated what CEO Stephen Macaskill calls a “sound money” philosophy for investors looking to preserve their wealth in the face of governments worldwide issuing massive amounts of currency with little or no relationship to its actual value. Macaskill has been a pioneering cryptocurrency advocate since 2012 and wants Amagi customers to be prepared for what may come of the dollar and other paper currencies around the world.

“We want to be a leader in the sound money movement,” Macaskill says. “With the adoption of cryptocurrencies increasing every day, their viability is virtually assured. History shows that paper currency, backed by nothing of value, will ultimately fail. It’s only a matter of time until no one will be accepting the dollar. By trading exclusively in cryptocurrencies, we’ll still be in business when that time comes."

Amagi Metals has been accepting cryptocurrencies since November of 2012 with a major focus on Bitcoin. Bitcoin now accounts for over 40% of the company’s customer payments. It has been adopted by well-known companies around the globe like Overstock.com, Expedia, Dell and Newegg. Due to Bitcoin’s miniscule fees and fast transaction time, transacting in Bitcoin is more efficient than using credit cards or sending personal checks... continued

Nxt General Discussion / Something's wrong with wallet.mynxt.info
« on: August 19, 2014, 12:05:30 am »
Hey guys,

I sent 300 Nxt to https://nxtblocks.info/#section/accountId/NXT-QEQ4-FAZH-8PH8-F7KE7

But when I login, it appears as if I didn't receive anything in my online wallet.  And if I use the wallet's block explorer, I get this:  http://www.mynxt.info/blockexplorer/details.php?action=ac&ac=15182238432072774338

Does somebody know what's going on with wallet.mynxt.info?


Nxt General Discussion / How did the Nxt Committees come about?
« on: August 18, 2014, 11:04:42 am »
Just wondering..  How did the Nxt Committees come about, and how did they get funding?  Was it from donations from the community?

Considering that no company or organization is behind Nxt except the community is truly amazing.  I think other projects should follow the same example.

You guys still willing to deposit money on BTER after the hacking incident?  I had no problems with them before, but this recent hack is making me iffy on using their services again.

'BlackHalo is a smart contracting client which eliminates the middle man, or the trust you have to put in total stranger when doing transactions. It offers “double deposit two-party escrow”, joint accounts and more! You can initiate worldwide transfers, straight from your computer to someone else right from the wallet — anywhere in the world and without the need of a company or person acting as an intermediary.  You can pay them knowing they can’t break the contract due to the advanced deposit each party made to insure the deal. The contracts are unbreakable.'

'A decentralized exchange/trading floor is implemented in BlackHalo’s “Market” tab. NightTrader is an encrypted messaging system which creates a totally new system of client networks, which allows them to communicate without the use of centralized servers. This prevents threats and extortion since clients can filter the messages and allows for all kinds of wonderful products to be created atop the platform itself.'

'Now your coins never have to leave your computer! Trade Dogecoins for Blackcoins and Bitcoins for Peercoins. The sky is the limit.'  -this feature could be a game changer.

... seems like everyone is pushing forward to be on top of crypto 2.0.

Nxt General Discussion / A Fair Review of Nxt from a Ripple User
« on: June 30, 2014, 05:43:46 am »
Nxt seems like the closest competitor to Ripple so I figured I'd download it and give it a spin this past week. My results and impressions are below. SO far, it's the most interesting cryptocurrency and network I've seen of any of the "altcoins". It has some drawbacks but although it's a "small" competitor it could potentially become a real big thing if development continues. I will be watching this one more closely. First impressions below...

Setup (Nxtra 1-click client)
- Downloadable client was nice, with a quick install and setup process - just as easy as the old Bitcoin-QT.
- Needing to remember or store a long secret phrase seemed like a hassle, versus having a password separate from the secret phrase.
- Blockchain took a very long time to download (approx. 2-3 hrs).

- Send "Nxt" funds to other users, with approx. 1.5 minute confirmation time (seems slow relative to Ripple!)
- Send messages to other users for a 1 Nxt fee.
- Contacts section to store addresses, emails and description for each contact
- Messages inbox
- Asset Exchange - this seems like it could hold huge potential for decentralized issuing, buying and selling assets directly on the Nxt blockchain. Trades also seem to require the 1.5 minute confirmation time delay though... slow relative to what I was used to on Ripple. The only big asset trading right now seems to be NEM stake token trading (New Economy Movement) so at the moment it does not seem heavily used.
- Aliases
- Peers (view connected addresses, platform, etc)
- News

Missing features (things that Ripple has):
- Instant transactions (5 seconds or less)
- Sending / receiving other currencies in the network
- Currency trading
- Instant currency conversions
- Bitcoin bridge

If you want the TL/DR verdict: I'm still much more in favor of Ripple due to the speed and user experience.

A few additional notes unrelated to the direct user experience and features:

- From an outsider's perspective, the Nxt community and marketing seems very fragmented and disorganized. It wasn't exactly clear how to find the "official" place to go and get a summary of the information on the protocol, the Nxt currency or how to find a simple downloadable client to use. It took a few Google searches and reading online forums.
- Approximate network transaction times are not exactly clear anywhere. I just had to test and check myself.
- Nxt trading seems difficult right now, as it's mostly traded on a few small exchanges based in China and other foreign countries. The only US-based one is Cryptsy which was a relief to find. However, their deposit and withdraw times are unfortunately all over the map, ranging from minutes to hours wait time. Deposit and withdraws ranged from 1-3 hours when testing with Nxt which was a little taxing on my patience and could be stressful for anyone who moves large money there.

Overall, Nxt was interesting but does feel a little cludgy and rough around the edges. It does have some potential though!



Nxt General Discussion / Nxt AE, Asset to Asset Trading
« on: June 23, 2014, 09:54:49 pm »
Are there plans to make asset to asset trades possible in Nxt in the future?  Just wondering.

I was thinking about organzing a Nxt giveaway for the Peercoin and Dogecoin communites, but I am not an active member there.  So it might be a good idea to find someone who is an upstanding member of those said communities to help me.

Also, what do you think of a 'Make a tweet for Russel Brand giveaway'?  Best tweets get some Nxt and the best of the best tweet actually gets to be tweeted to him.  He is kind of a revolutionary according to this thread:  https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/decentralised-society-political-movement-potential/

Nxt Improvement Proposals / Online Wallet + AE?

Are there any plans to add the features from the downloadable client to the online wallet?

Like the AE for example.
