Nxt Academy / Pas events
« on: March 18, 2015, 10:27:01 pm »
18 March - U Beránka
Today I had a little lecture for the alternative self-sufficient living group of people who are against consumerist lifestyles and hold themselves rather natural and spiritual values. They have their own local currency, so we were discussing the pros and cons of having their local currency backed by Nxt monetary system

- it was about 140 minutes long, huge discussions, these people have a lot to think about now

Nxt Academy / Campaigns, stunts
« on: March 02, 2015, 12:01:13 am »
This could be a nice place for little brainstorming.

The PHD Movie 2 / PHD Comic
a) They were offering this:
Pledge $1,500 or more
THE VICE-CHANCELLOR: ... Your name, the name of your research group and/or your research project will appear as a cameo IN the movie.
- the screening of The PHD Movie 2 has just been finished, but we could try to get into the The PHD Movie 3, if they choose the same strategy
b) The screenings of The PHD Movie 2 will start this fall at the Universities, it could be a cool opportunity to bring there some promo stuff, speech...

Just in 21 hours we will try to connect students at the University of Economics in Prague to you, Nxters, via video conference, google hangout.


UPDATE 12th February:
The anounced video-conference will take place on Monday 23rd February at 8PM CET. Beside the participants of our project, also the students of my course concerning cryptocurrencies will be present as audience. It would be a delight practical experience for them to be able to speak to you, Nxt developers and professionals. If you feel like joining the video-conference, please contact Salsacz. I'm looking forward to your participation.
The project with students will be finished on Tuesday 24th. If you feel like rewarding the presenting participants and the participants who have anyhow earned the most Nxts during the project with a symbolic amount on Nxt, you can either send Nxt to the project's wallet or I can give you directly their wallets (under their consent, naturally).
Thank you for reading and if you had any questions, feel free to ask.

It all started during this speech: http://nxtacademy.com/lesson/nxt-new-cryptocurrency-trends-2/ (turn on the english subtitles)

Let's hope we will solve all technical issues. I have got few confirmed Nxters for the live-audience, others can still contact me and I will send you invitation. Others should be able to watch the stream on Youtube, if all goes well.

Time of the video-conference: 23rd February 2015, 8pm CET (20:00-22:00), = 7pm GMT.

Thanks  :)

Conferences / Bitcoin conference Prague, 14th May 2015
« on: February 11, 2015, 11:28:00 pm »

By organizers of russian confs..

I think I will be there :D

Everyone has heard about a mysterious currency Bitcoin, but maybe not everyone knows where and what you can spend it on.
The world we live in does not tolerate inertness; it is in a constant process of movement and change. One of the tools changing the image of modernity is digital currencies, in particular Bitcoin.

What is Bitcoin Conference?
A thematic conference devoted to "the currency of the future", Bitcoin Conference, which was held in 2014 in such cities as Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kiev raises awareness of what is Bitcoin and how to earn on it.
Bitcoin Conference has become the first thematic event in the CIS countries, aimed at the acquaintance of participants with the Bitcoin ecosystem and business prospects.
Bitcoin meetings held in three cities and two countries were able to bring together prominent representatives of the industry, well-known experts and gurus of the crypto currency market, lawyers, foreign experts who shared their experiences and represented the best practices for working with Bitcoin.
In 2015, Smile Expo, an organizer of the conference, is going to push the boundaries and enter the European market, conducting a thematic event in Prague.

Why Prague?
Smile Expo has deicide to expand the geography of its activities due to several important factors. In particular, one of the catalysts have been changes in the structure of the cryptocurrency market in Russia after the ban and blocking of thematic sites by the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media. After that, many Russian companies operating in the cryptocurrency industry have moved to Europe, where there are no restrictions for Bitcoin business.
In addition, the conference organizer is in an attempt to develop and promote digital currency; and central-eastern regions of Europe are an ideal place for the realization of this ambition.
Bitcoin Conference Prague wants to serve as a unique platform for the exchange of experience between Russian companies, which have something to say and to show Europe, and their foreign counterparts.
That is why, in the heart of Europe, in the historic city of Prague, the organizers will bring together not only the Czech Bitcoin community, but also participants from Russia, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Germany, and in general all Bitcoin enthusiasts of Central and Eastern Europe.

Nxt Academy / e-Library
« on: February 06, 2015, 08:08:27 pm »
Goal is to have a nice platform where would be scientific papers related to Nxt, Bitcoin, altcoins...

It should be easy to use, easy to find all texts, supporting tags...

I still didn't find a central point - true platform, but very important step is also to have those papers saved at popular sites.

I started with Scribd and Academia.edu:

Nxt Theses list at Scribd:

Nxt Articles:

- Scribd is very easy to use and in supports mobile phones, e-readers etc.
- Scribd has got 80 million monthly readers
- Scribd provides nice support for Googlesearch

Why is this cool? Those uploaded Nxt-related articles will be easily found by those who had no idea about their existence. Someone who will be looking for Bitcoin at Scribd or even at Google, will find those articles.

I created a brand new profile at Academia.edu too:

Here you can see Nxt articles at Bitcoin topic:

- Academia.edu provides fantastic support for google search
- Academia will bring huge traffic to those papers, thanks to a) google searching b) there are 800 people watching all Bitcoin related papers in Academia.edu..

Not everyone has an access to the original full client with the support of Nxt Monetary system. You can still donate to crowdfunding campaigns, by oldschool donations. How?

Let's say you want to donate to Nxt Academy from Bter or Online wallets. You can simply send you donations to the issuer of the crowd funding currency.

How to find an account of issuer?
- At my topics I post it manually (You can also directly donate to Nxt Academy account (from exchanges): Nxt Academy account: NXT-W4FQ-JGAE-JHS9-3PMNR)
- If you have access to the full client, you can find issuer this way:

- most of blockchain explorers still don't support Monetary System. It should be easy to find issuer after explorers will be updated

And what happens next?
In this example Nxt Academy needs to raise at least 500,000 Nxt. If we had problems with reaching this goal at the end of this month (currently we are at 8%), but issuer's account would have enough funds from direct donations, I could send those donations to the monetary system. Basically I would be a middleman helping to those who don't have access to the Monetary System or are still too afraid to use it and prefer direct donations :)

Nxt Academy / Possible cooperation and other courses
« on: February 05, 2015, 11:50:10 am »
Khan Academy
- ideas:
For free. For everyone. Forever.
No ads, no subscriptions. We are a not‑for‑profit because we believe in a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere.

Khan Academy is a small nonprofit with a BIG mission.

Thanks to our generous supporters, what started as one man tutoring his cousin has grown into an 80-person organization reaching over 20 million registered users. Our team passionately believes in inspiring the world to learn and proves a few individuals can make a big difference.

A personalized learning resource for all ages

Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. We've also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.

You’re joining a global classroom

Millions of students from all over the world, each with their own unique story, learn at their own pace on Khan Academy every single day. We have video lessons translated into almost 40 languages and counting in addition to the Spanish, French, and Brazilian Portuguese versions of our site.

- how - become a coach/teacher:

Nxt Academy / Online Courses
« on: February 04, 2015, 11:06:07 am »
This is only a beta-version where you can see how it would look like:

- the goal is to make original content, different for all kinds of audience.

- everything should be based on cooperation, so existing videos could be used, cut, used as a bonus vids...

There are two main reasons:
- to have easy-to use platform for brand new users who don't know which video to watch, which article to read. Everything is served by the Nxt Academy course platform.

- to have courses prepared for other similar projects - Coursera, Coin Academy, Freebieservers... Nxt Academy (= me) will be actively trying to have Nxt courses at all educational video platforms at many languages.

How-to videos are nice too, but first of all we need to create videos where brand new users will be informed about - how is this useful for me?

I will be preparing the scenarios with the school teachers, because they know how to teach. Video itself could be outsourced, but the most important part is a great scenario. Only cooperation with teaching experts can lead to the excellent educational content.

Let’s actively bring Nxt into every university and school all over the world. Every teacher will be able to download and use teaching materials for their students. Everyone will be able to attend free online courses about Nxt from their home. Young people untouched by the cryptocurrencies will be informed about Nxt via: bulletin boards at the school, lectures organized at their school, student projects led at their school… Online Nxt courses will be visible at every educational site with online courses...

Why Nxt Academy?
The world of cryptocurrencies has got a huge enemy – ignorance. The society isn’t ready for wider acceptance of the cryptocurrencies. Nxt is bringing a huge revolution in many industries, but right now it is just a toy for geeks. Nxt Academy is going to prepare the society for the Nxt crypto revolution by providing teaching materials.

Direct marketing to Students – education
Nxt Academy isn’t only a passive website with videos and texts. It actively propagates Nxt at schools, universities or student festivals. Nxt Academy will be targeting all bigger Universities and sending its materials to their students. Students will be working on team projects with their classmates, while Nxters will be mentoring them. They could join international research teams, apply for Nxt Academy grants or Theses of the year. Teachers will be receiving teaching materials, infographics, textbooks and worksheets for children, so they could teach even young kids about Nxt. It will be easy to download all sources, printed materials will be sent to the schools or handed out after the speeches / lectures at the schools and universities.

Online Marketing and Cooperation
All content created by the Nxt Academy will be actively distributed to the other similar projects – Khan Academy, Coursera, Coin Academy,  College Cryptocurrency Network… It’s about spreading the knowledge, so Nxt Academy will try to have its courses at all of those sites and many others.

Nxt Academy will be targeting people untouched by the cryptocurrencies at various online platforms (such as Freebieservers). Nxt Academy provides press releases, news, blog posts, Twitter/Facebook/Weibo posts, forum posts, videos at multiple platforms… SEO, online marketing etc.

Translations are planned for Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, French and Czech.

Nxt Academy will be supporting the crypto research. Database of the research/students papers will be very helpful for all cryptocurrency researchers. This side project will create a library with crypto-related articles saved at multiple platforms. With enough funds, Nxt Academy could provide student scholarships, grants or awards. The dream goal is to have a crypto theses of the year contest during the Nxt Academy conference.

Teaching - Online courses and textbooks
Before entering the Universities or Student festivals, Nxt Academy needs to prepare the teaching materials.

Online courses
Easy-to-use platform for everyone who will be able to learn about Nxt, its ecosystem, its ideas, its abilities. New fresh videos and edited videos will be followed by chosen articles and infographics.

If we want to get cryptocurrencies and Nxt into the mainstream, we need to prepare educational materials for teachers. Textbooks will be created by a cooperation with university professors and school teachers.

Even children should have a chance to learn about the cryptocurrencies. We need to prepare the world for this new revolution. Worksheets, educational programs for children will be prepared by a cooperation with the school teachers.

Social media campaigns need well prepared infographics to reach the biggest audience.

What is Nxt Academy?
Nxt Academy is a non-profit organisation which focuses on free education of the students and children. Nxt Academy isn’t a commercial project, so its existence, form and size depends on donations from the Nxt community.

Nxt Academy Crowd funding:
Nxt Academy is a first project using completely decentralized Crowd funding via Nxt Monetary System:

Name: NxtAcademy
Activation: block 370,000 (cca 1st March)
500,000 NXT need to be raised during February in order to successfully finish this crowd funding campaign. Details and questions: https://nxtforum.org/nxt-academy/

How to donate:

Now you can donate NXT to Nxt Academy only directly, Nxt Academy account: NXT-W4FQ-JGAE-JHS9-3PMNR

- current projects: http://nxtacademy.com/category/news/projects/
- online courses (BETA): http://nxtacademy.com/courses/all/

Nxt Academy Crowdfunding:
Nxt Academy has got huge plans for upcoming years. Salsacz can devote a full time, hire internal coworker (school teacher), external university teachers and pay for outsourcing micro-jobs (translations, voice-overs, corrections) via Nxt-jobs or Fiverr. All costs are very low, because the salaries in Czech republic (1 full time and 1 part time) are very low compared to western countries.

Nxt Academy is a first project using completedy decentralized Crowd funding via Nxt Monetary System:

Name: NxtAcademy
Activation: block 370,000 (cca 1st March)
500,000 NXT need to be raised during February in order to successfully finish this crowd funding campaign. Details and questions: https://nxtforum.org/nxt-academy/

How to donate:
1) Click at Monetary System + Currencies section
2) Find ACDMY / NxtAcademy
3) Click at “Reserve” at the “Actions” column.

4) Buy any number of “Units” (more = better :) )

How it works?
If 500 units won’t be bought before block 370,000, all pledged NXT will be returned. If at least 500 units will be bought, raised funds will be used for maintaining Nxt Academy (= at least 1000 USD/month). More funds = more projects for students, more lectures all over the world, more external teachers, more printed materials.

I don't have any exams, jobs or family, so when I was thinking about my future here in Nxt, I came up with this idea, to combine my skills, wisdom, academic contacts, free time and knowledge: to make educational platform and to bring huge marketing campaign to the universities and schools all over the world. Nxt Academy isn't targetung only universities and schools, but also everyone with a computer who could use its e-courses. It's not about having online courses at nxtacademy.com, but about bringing those courses (+ textbooks, research papers...) to other similar projects (freebieservers, coursera), where can be reached brand new audience.

Nxt Academy has got currently two running projects:
- NXT Academic Outreach Program (NAOP) = collecting contacts, overtaken from Ricky. It was created only for english-speaking schools, my goal is to have all languages, especially chinese.
- Nxt for Students: University of Economics, Prague = cooperation with Hassen as external teacher. Nxt Academy is planning to bring similar projects to many other universities.
- few other lectures will be announced soon

In order to make everything possible, I issued a Monetary System coin: ACDMY to ask for funding. This is a first truly decentralized crowdfunding.
How to donate:

Now you can donate NXT to Nxt Academy only directly, Nxt Academy account: NXT-W4FQ-JGAE-JHS9-3PMNR

Thank you   ;)
