Core Development Discussion / Re: Nxt 2.0 design

I can't really dig through all of this, but just from a feeling, I feel it's gonna get a lot of people even more disinterested in NXT, as it's always complicated compared to many other cryptos and introducing this will remove more casual NXT users for sure :)
The casual user will hardly see any difference. When you download and start the NRS client, you will see the NXT child chain the way you see the current blockchain now, and all transactions will happen on that NXT child chain. The end user will not even be aware that there is a forging chain, unless he becomes interested in how to forge.

How exactly the other child chains will be accessible, which of them if any will be possible to switch to from the default NRS client, this is all a matter of UI. Some child chain creators may want custom clients, with which only their child chain is visible. For commonly used child chains, for example if SuperBTC becomes such a child chain, there may be a way to switch to it from the default client. Or even do transactions on another child chain without the user realizing it, for example if placing an asset ask order and the user wants to place it in SuperBTC, the client submits the transaction on that child chain without the user having to be aware of how it works. How it is presented in the UI is a whole different story, it does not need to reflect how the server part works.

I see, thanks a lot for clearing this up and for providing a great explanation, I get this much better now!

Hi Vya,
I'm also looking forward seeing this feature :-).

Thanks a lot to you two for the quick answer, can't wait for this! :)

All the best,
Vya

Heya :)

Really nice project u got going there :)

Did I see this correctly that there is currently no way to exchange BTC/NXT to Fiat and then withdraw Fiat to my bank account? Is this a feature that will be implemented in the coming weeks and months? I find it very cumbersome to exchange on Poloniex and then go to yet another exchange to convert my NXT to BTC and then finally to Fiat.

Looking forward how this project evolves!

All the best,
Vya

Hi nina,

usually there is a really nice graphical client for mac, called Wesley's Client. Unfortunately, for some strange reason, you can't get this one to download from nxt.org, I just checked on my Mac.

You can download the wallet here: https://bitbucket.org/nxt-wallet/nxt-wallet-mac/downloads

If you navigate to the latest release (https://bitbucket.org/nxt-wallet/nxt-wallet-mac/downloads/nxt-wallet-mac-2.2.0-nrs-1.4.8.zip) then start everything up and once everything is updated/downloaded, it will automatically tell you that the version you are currently using is outdated and that you need to update to the latest version 1.5.9 :)

Someone at nxt.org should get this fixed sometimes soon imho, this could loose us many potential non-tech-savvy users, there is no contact form there though so I hope someone official will read this here  ;D

All the best,
Vya

Security / Re: Is our hardware under threat from NSA etc.?
« on: May 09, 2015, 09:11:29 pm »
Uh, sorry but you kind of lost me there my friend.

On the one hand side you want to discuss the problems but then at the same time you say it's not feasible to find alternatives and basically downrate any constructive import from the community about this topic and bring it back to the topic of conspiracy theory and guess-work? It looks to me like you prefer talking about the apparent problem rather than trying to find solutions. I mean, ever since PRISM, I don't think we need to discuss whether or not there are backdoors but rather what effective treatments are against this illness in the first place, don't you agree? And whether or not there ever will be efficient chipsets similar to AMD and Intel is totally speculative as well. 15 years ago, a good computer cost thousands of Dollars, 20 years ago it was unaffordable by most.

15 or 20 years ago nobody would have even thought of any alternative to money or currency other than gold or silver, yet now we are here in the age of crypto. So what exactly is so difficult to think that in 5 or 6 years there will be chipsets that are just as efficient, if not more efficient than AMD or Intel? Right now, there is open source operating systems that are more powerful than Windows or Mac OS X, if we would have the software available there. Right now, there is a better technology than a diesel or petrol car, and it doesn't require millions to tape them out either, as a matter of fact, it's a simple chipset that needs to be installed into your car's board and you can pretty much run it on ethanol alone.

Saying that there will never be alternatives to AMD or Intel is exactly the reason why there is only AMD and Intel and exactly the reason why we have the problems we have right now. Especially in our day and age, NOBODY needs the actual processing power of the Intel and AMD chips, at least not unless you are HEAVILY into rendering, editing or any other highly professional area of technology.

The normal everyday user of the internet can make do with a very cheap processor, maybe not a Raspberry Pi (we are talking a 29$ computer) but for 100 or 200$ you can get a PC that runs most of the software I argue 90% of all human beings need their PC for, so how exactly is this such a big endevaour to tape out technology from 2 or 3 years ago? I think we have reached a state of consciousness where we slowly realize that the technological advancement in those sectors are more show than actually useful. If you can proof to me that the average joe needs an octacore 4GHz beast chip and uses it in everyday life, I take my statement back but I argue that nobody needs anything more than an i5 dual core at MAX to get every job done he or she sets out to do, regardless of system or software.

My 2NXT and now I will go back to my weekend :)

All the best,
Vya

Hi,
the forging calculator doesn't work for me now. IE shows HTTP 500 error, Firefox just a blank page.
Is it just me?

No, I get the same in Firefox.

« on: May 06, 2015, 09:36:59 pm »
Indeed. I'm just speculating here. I've no idea which companies would be involved or how the backdoor technology would work but it concerns me.

Yes, I agree with you friend.

I think the best way to circumvent this problem is to start investing in decentralized processes more. NXT is a great start but as long as Apple & Co. hold the best Software technologies and the best hardware hostage, we should be worried about the prime problem rather than the symptoms that spring from it.

Kickstarting all these things makes a lot of sense, but it will take time for mainstream adoption, like everything does. Remember back then when you were the cool kid with your Sega Master System?

I think we are seeing a heavy grassroots movement out from this new school approach and back to the old underground fun stations, which hopefully will be built again like they used to be. Back then, ALL the systems used to be great, now you have to choose which provider holds your games and other assets hostage. So in general I would say that starting from the Cryptocurrencies will come all sorts of freedom-based movements, as we can already see in NXT.

So I think for now the best thing to do is to just be patient and try to get actively involved in trying to invest and fund things that are based on decentralized, open-source aspects. So far, staying up to date on the developments here have already yielded many grassroots start-ups that seem to provide many great alternatives, so it's only a matter of time before the next clever business-person will see the need for independent chip manufacturing, based on the great success of the raspberry pi's for instance :)

At least, that's the positive affirmations I try to promote into this space ;)

Thanks for this and the other list!

Does that mean we're OK so long as we choose our hardware wisely? I'm thinking of staying with an AMD processor instead of the Haswell one that I planned to upgrade to.

And why would AMD not sell backdoors but Intel would? :P

@Chuckone, any ideas of way forward of getting an "emergency update mailing list" set up and managed? Would it be done from the core devs side?

Could we not just simply open up a newsletter service and everyone interested can sign up to it? We could propagate it on the official NXT website and the forum - so far, all the important information seems to have gotten through in those places! :)

Lol

Have you guys heard of Synereo?

Nice find, looks quite solid without looking too far into it :)

So far, I only heard of Diaspora as a decentralized alternative, with some mysteries surrounding the death of one of the core devs shortly after it becoming public...

there is http://www.forgenxt.com/ which handles the payout to you.
ok you have to send a message there to get your funds but i think it the future its possible to automatically payout every week for example without doing anything.

a script like forgenxt should be open source so that anybody which is able to administrate a server can open a forge pool and earn some money with it. it will secure the network, and people could choose from many different forge pools.

Not to forget, with fees you can automatically donate to the dev funds, marketing funds, fun funds etc.. :)

Nxt Helpdesk / Re: Increase fee
« on: April 27, 2015, 02:50:43 pm »
Hi coci,

as far as I understood it, the fee is not set in stone but can adapt according to the market value, needs the adjustment of a lead dev though to manipulate the fee :) It's an interesting point though, and something to consider on how to actually regulate the fee without a centralized party. Is there any plans for this from the dev team to have a dynamic decentralized fee regulation?

Welcome to NXT apart from that :D

Nxt General Discussion / Re: NXT Payment Processors?
« on: April 26, 2015, 08:54:36 pm »
Thanks, this looks good as well, however it seems still very much in it's infancy, but nice to keep an eye on :)

Of course, having a decentralized processor would be a dream come true but I think I am thinking too far into the future :D Would that even be doable with NXT at one stage, just thinking out loud here, gazing at the Marketplace built into the platform already, surely there must be ways and forms this could take to really boost merchant adoption to the next level? I think getting smaller businesses to make the switch is really what could benefit this movement a lot, I can see it everyday in my own workflows on how it affects and moves me towards more and more self-reliant systems that are not governed by central authorities, but I don't want to go too far offtopic either, just feeling that the experiences I have right now might very well be shared by many in just a few years.

Have a nice Sunday everyone!

You still "need" convert the bitcoin to fiat.

The rates are also not "good".

You may also want to check out.

https://www.coinpayments.net/supported-coins

Hey, thanks for that! Yes, I find Shapeshift very expensive and not really proper to integrate. CoinPayments seems promising, this is more like it :) I shall dig into this more now for my evening lecture ;)

If there is anything else available, I am of course open to hear more alternatives!

Nxt General Discussion / NXT Payment Processors?
« on: April 26, 2015, 05:51:56 pm »
Hi guys,

I just had a quick browse and was looking for a way to integrate NXT into an online shop system, in a similar fashion that BitPay operates, but there doesn't seem to be much on the market right now, or am I just not looking in the right spots? :D

Love to bring more awareness to this and hope that there is something out there for integrating it into an online platform! It seems like an essential step to promote this into the real world, even if just geeky people would benefit of it right now! :D

Very much looking forward to hearing about something!

All the best
