Fellow Nxters,

1.  Many of you guys myself and my buddy Leon Fu as early investors of NXT.  In addition to Marc De Mesel, we have made the most NXT videos online to help promote NXT since it first came out.  We even went to the 1st Texas Bitcoin Conference to spread the word about NXT.  In addition, myself and Damelon and others in the NXT community to help organize and start the NXT Foundation so we can help promote NXT.  Due to my father in law's open heart surgery which consumed all my time and resources, I had to resign from the NXT Foundation.  However, I still followed NXT behind the scenes.

2.  I have not made any videos about NXT during it's decline in the crypto community because I had no solution to fix the decline in NXT.  However, the recent successes of Ethereum, Auger, Lisk, etc. and talk of NXT 2.0 has prompted Leon Fu and I (with input from our friend James D'Angelo from the World Bitcoin Network) to come up with these 10 Keys To Success in reinventing NXT. 

3.  We are calling this proposal "The Madonna Solution" because we believe that NXT needs to reinvent itself in order to avoid extinction.  Here is our proposal:

2016-03-28 UPDATE:
A few people, asked for the text version.  I do not type fast, that is why I always prefer to do videos, but here are the bullet points of what I discussed in the video:

How To Reinvent NXT In 10 Steps:

1. 3 month legit ICO
2. eliminate centralization
3. notate & publish their POS alogrithm
4. Announce NXT 2.0 relaunch at all major bitcoin conferences
5. Identify a clear use & ideal customer for NXT (Here are some examples):
   a. ETH = Smart Contracts, DAO, Turing Complete Scripting
   b. DOGE = A joke & tipping coin
   c. Monero, DASH = Anonymity & Privacy
   d. MAID, Storj, SIA - Distributed cloud service
   e. Slock = hardware/software locks
   f. Lisk = Decentralized Apps

Ask yourself these simple marketing questions:
   a.  What is the potential customer or user's irrational pain?
   b.  Is the potential customer or user actively searching for a solution?

7. Include bonuses & incentives during the NXT ICO
8. Get microsoft onboard
9. Set aside funding for development, sales & marketing
10.  Come up with a new name for NXT

I call it the "Madonna Solution" because Madonna has reinvented herself over the years to stay current.  If Madonna can reinvent herself, so can NXT.


Let me know your thoughts guys...

Enjoy

Hello everyone,

Bas and I just completed an update to announce some changes that we are taking to the NXT Community & Development Updates:

http://nxtfoundation.org/nxt-community-development-update-19-11-01-2014-the-nxt-evolution/

As the NXT platform evolves, we feel that the way we create content to educate the public also needs to evolve to ensure the longevity of the NXT technology.

Enjoy!

I personally believe this is going to severely hinder NXT adoption by the general public:

"The recipient account is an unknown account, meaning it has never had an incoming or outgoing transaction. To submit this request you must supply the recipient public key also."

There has to be a better way for a new user to acquire and send coins...  This security process creates too much "friction" and "confusion" for a new user.

We have a lot of smart folks in the NXT community... somebody please come up with a better solution.  I understand there are security concerns but there has to be a better compromise...

Enjoy!

Hey guys,

1.  The NXT updates will be cancelled today.

2.  Due to our work schedules, Damelon and I are rescheduling the update date and times.  Orginally, we thought doing it during the weekend would be more ideal and get more people involved.  The metrics indicates it did not make a significant difference whether we do the updates on a weekday or a weekend.  The attendance rate is fairly the same.  The number of video views are also the same. We still get 200-300 views per video update:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZUljIZUHCzZpyd1ziwlmaA/videos

3.  Instead of doing the updates 4 times/month we are moving to a new schedule where we do the updates twice a month.  So we will do the updates every other week now.  We are doing this for several reasons:

-- Our work schedules do not allow us to do the updates 4 times a month, we've tried to make it happen and it is putting too much stress on each of us where it becomes more of a burden then something we both enjoy doing.  Doing the updates every other week will allow us to enjoy promoting the nxt platform because it will not interfere with our personal and professional lives.

-- Initially, there were new nxt developments coming out each week so it made sense to update the community each week.  Nowadays, the developments take more time so we do not want to do an update full of "filler" content.  Doing it every other week will allow us to have more "quality" updates.  We prefer to have less updates but each of them are high quality.  We want outsiders and new investors to nxt to see us as a high quality content community.

-- We want more regularity and consistency in the updates.  It is unprofessional to keep rescheduling updates all the time.  The nxt community knows our commitment to promoting nxt so reschedules can be tolerated but new nxt adopters, investors, and businesses may misinterpret our inconsistent updates as being unprofessional.

-- We want to focus our updates more on the progress of the nxt community and it's platform development.  Recently, our updates have been about the contropolis hack or the bter theft or the graviton hack and we have decided that we want to focus more on the positive aspects of the nxt platform and it's community.  We want future updates to announce new developments in the nxt platform or the growth of the community.  In other words we want to spend more time on the positive aspects of the nxt platform and it's community.

4.  Therefore, our next community update will now be on the first an third sunday of each month.  This is not set in stone.  nxt is constantly evolving and we will try this new schedule to keep the community updated and continue to promote the nxt platform.

5.  The next updates will be on september 6th and 20th.

Enjoy!

If sunday doesn't work for any reason we will figure out a different time slot.

If you have topics you want me to cover during the update please leave it in the comments.

Topics that will be discussed in the next community update will include:

1.  New management of NXT.org by QBTC.
2.  Recent crash of NXT due to theft of NXT.

Hey Guys,

1.  I have a conflict with my work schedule today.
2.  The other folks are not available to do the update.

Therefore, we have to cancel the updates for today.

I will look to do one this coming Sunday to make up for it and try the weekend time slot to accommodate some of the weekend nxters.

Enjoy!

Here is a marketing/publicity opportunity for the NXT community.  Please let me know your thoughts.

1.  There are 5 Malyasian MMA champs from the 2013 season of Malaysian Invasion who will be competing in Las Vegas, Nevada in the U.S. this July 4th weekend.

http://english.astroawani.com/news/show/mma-malaysia-top-team-invades-las-vegas-38474

http://www.malaysianinvasion.com/

2.  The 5 fighters will be representing Malaysia at the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) in las vegas this weekend and be referred to as Malaysia Top Team:

http://www.immaf.org/worldchampionships/

3.  I have a client/friend named Eric Gerber, who was the fighter's Jiu Jitsu & Muay Thai coach when he lived in Malaysia.  Eric currently resides in Texas.

4.  If the NXT community can help sponsor his round trip ticket to Las Vegas to help coach his former fighters.  The entire Malaysian Top Team and their coach Eric Gerber will be willing:

--- to get on video and thank the nxt community for helping to sponsor them for the IMMAF.
--- they are willing to wear our nxt t-shirts at the fight to bring attention to nxt.
--- whatever else the nxt community deems is necessary to help promote nxt as long as it fits within their team's "professionalism" guidelines.

5.  The cost of the round trip ticket will be approximately $1,500 USD since it is a last minute booking.  Any unused funds can be returned if necessary.

6.  If you are in the las vegas area and can assist these fighters in any way, please let me know.  Eric Gerber has already secured them a complimentary training facility at Wanderlei Silva's gym in las vegas.

7.  Please let me know your thoughts, or questions, and if you are available to donate to this sponsorship opportunity.

Enjoy!

Nxt General Discussion / Results Of Cointropolis_JustaBit Issue
« on: June 26, 2014, 09:51:30 pm »
I had previously mentioned to the community that I could get computer forensics done on John's computer regarding the Cointropolis_Justabit issue and many community members did not feel it would would benefit anyone so I stopped any further research into this matter.

If you are a current user, investor, trader, or new to the NXT platform and it's community, here is an opportunity to join us today LIVE on Youtube Livestream starting at 11am New York time to get the latest updates and progress about the NXT platform straight from the folks working on it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W0BAHbfBTc

We will discuss:

1.  PROBLEM:  The market needs a decentralized, trustless system to allow people to trade crypto currencies

NXT SOLUTION:  NXT multigateway soon to be released to provide trustless exchange of crypto currencies

2.  PROBLEM:  The market needs a store to sell their digital goods and alias.

NXT SOLUTION:  NXT 1.2.0e release going to testnet which includes Digital Goods Store & Alias Trading by end of next week.

3.  PROBLEM: The market needs a simple online wallet to store NXT coins (similar to blockchain.info) where customers can keep their own private keys to their accounts.

NXT SOLUTION:  MyNXT.info and Beta version of NXTblocks.info has been created to provide free online wallet services for NXT with possible wallet service coming from NXThaus.com as well.

4.  PROBLEM:  Merchants & payment processors want to know more about crypto currencies and how to integrate it into their system.

NXT SOLUTION:  NXT has become official partner of 2014 PayExpo event in London and in negotiations to continue as official crypto currency partner for 2015 PayExpo.

1.  NXT was the official crypto currency partner of the 2014 PayExpo in London.  The cost to be a partner at the expo and have a booth and speaking time on stage is £15,000:

http://www.payexpo.com/page.cfm/ID=1

2.  Here is John Manglaviti (Cointropolis) and Lee Gibson's (TXTcoin) talk at the PayExpo about NXT:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qOTNHIX77w

3.  Right now, NXT has the option to be the official crypto currency partner of the 2015 PayExpo again for £15,000.  The deadline to make this payment and reserve the partnership and have a booth is June 28th.  If NXT is not a partner then the Bitcoin Foundation will probably fill the void and be the crypto partner.

4. £15,000 is only the "partner & booth" cost.  The hotel/flight cost of sending representatives from the NXT community to the payexpo will also incur additional cost but there will be a year to raise funds for the this.  Right now, if the community wants NXT to be at the 2015 PayExpo again, we will need to raise approximately £15,000 in NXT.

5.  Please leave your "yes" or "no" decision including a reason for your decision.

6.  Donations will also be needed to fund this decision.  if you would like to donate nxt to fund this event, please state the amount of nxt you will commit to this event in your comment.  Once there is enough "yes" votes and enough nxt donations, I will provide a receiving nxt address to receive the funds and pay the payexpo folks.

7.  Myself, QBTC, Damelon, and Uniqueorn are the folks involved in this matter.

8.  If the majority of community votes is "no" we will notify the PayExpo people we are not interested and will not pursue this matter any further.

9.  If the majority of the community vote "yes", and there is enough donation commitments from the community, then we will proceed accordingly.  If the majority vote is "yes" but there is not enough donation commitments coming in, then we will close the issue and not pursue this matter any further.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

10.  Several prominent people in the community are available to convert the donations into fiat off exchange so it will not have an artificial effect on the price of NXT in the case we have enough donations for the event.

11.  Please be sure to submit your vote at the top of this post so your votes can be tallied.

Thanks for your input in this matter.

I shot this video of my friends and I discussing the differences between Ethereum Vs. Bitcoin Vs. NXT the night before I had to speak at the Texas Bitcoin Conference.

We tried to keep the discussion as non-technical as possible so it will benefit everyone:

The NXT Community & Development Update has been cancelled for today due to my work schedule.  Bas & David are unable to host the update due to their work schedules as well.

We will continue the update next week.

You can catch previous updates here:

Sorry for the inconveniences folks.

1.  We had the first public NXT community & Development Update last Wednesday with several people in the NXT community including Come From Beyond, Damelon, QBTC, Uniqueorn, Adam Levine, Opticalcarrier, Randall, etc and others who chose to remain anonymous.

The purpose of these NXT updates are to keep everyone in the NXT community informed and up to date with the latest developments and progress from NXT without having to read multiple forums.

Here is the NXT Community & Development Update #1 video:

http://nxtfoundation.com/updates/

2.  I will post this status update video in all the major nxt forums for now but in the future it will only be posted to Nxtforum.org.

3.  I'm in the process of creating a system that will automatically broadcast these status update videos to the community as soon as they are uploaded so you don't have to constantly check in the forums.

4.  Any suggestions and constructive criticisms to make future hangouts and updates better are highly welcomed.

5.  The goal is to have future updates broadcasted on Youtube Livestream and have a chat roll available so NXT community members can interact and do a Q&A during the update.

Enjoy!
Tai Zen

The next update will be next Wed, april 9th at gmt +1 (11am EST).  One of our main guests will be Wesley and he'll spend a few minutes to update us on the NXT Wesley Client which will soon become the default NXT client after it's code has been reviewed so stay tuned.
