Und noch einer  Grin

Has anybody already registered a German domain for NEM? If not I could take a look at it as there seems to a bit of interest already and I have some domain slots open at my provider anyhow.

A fair distribution is one of the most important factors for NEM in my opinion.

Imho it's desireable but it can't be the most important thing. It's not something that will get us to where we want to be. If we really want to create something awesome then we need more than just the fair distribution argument.
I do believe we have everything we needt though. There are some great ideas in play regarding forging and the network design so I'm confident we'll have more to offer than just fair distribution.

Agreed, there need to be other factors as well.

I only think if we end up with far less users than planned and instead have lots of users which hold 10-50 stakes each, then this this will hurt NEM a lot.
I just had a look into the registration thread and it is a bit worrying to me to see that 80% of the users who buy in there are brandnew accounts.

On the plus side I think NEM has a very promising team of people who are driving the coin development and also the community seems to built up nicely with some active people at this stage already.

Due to being very busy at work currently, I could not stay up to date on all of the discussion:
I've been onboard with NEM directly when I read about the idea because it sounded like something I was looking for since getting into crypto currencies. Now with the higher prices I think it would be fair to acquire another spot (not taking away two cheap spaces).

Are we allowed to buy a second stake of NEM if we are already on the stakeholder list once? From what I read it is ok two buy two, one for myself and one for a loved one. Would it be ok to buy in a second spot from my btct account which is already enlisted once?

You could buy a second stake but with a new account. We stick with with the original 1 account/ 1stake rule. To be fair 1 account is different from 1 person. But the idea that's we could start the first distribution/ genesis block with 3000 equal piece of NEM for 3000 stakeholders is just awesome that I am going to follow through with it.

After the first distribution, everyone could freely sell, buy, give away or consolidate their holdings as they see fit.

Thank you very much to the update!
I aggree that the initial plan is very appealing. In this case I will create an account for my s/o which I would use to buy one more share of NEM for her.
Hopefully people will keep it fair and square and not abuse the forum to buy multiple stakes for themselves too much. A fair distribution is one of the most important factors for NEM in my opinion.

@ norti:
good work! the realistic looking coins on your flickr, are they handmade in photoshop or an edited template?

Thank you!
The realistic looking coins are based on a set of templates that I have available and tried to play around with. I am not a graphics designer, but I found it interesting that people seemed to like the designs more, the more you move away from those templates and just create something more simplistic from the spot.

Maybe a general comment regarding the 8 line design:
What I really like about it is how easy it is to reproduce. I mean, even a child could sketch it onto a sidewalk easily. I think this would be a big plus for a major movement. Smiley

Therefore I would also be interested in what a professional designer could get out of it. Maybe somebody professional like play4ce could give it a go as well. Wink

more logos! Smiley

Those look really professional executed and presented, well done! I also really like the whole look of the promotional picture.. I've got a lot to learn!  Grin

I like the cyan logo best, as I think it would be the most recognizable and also I find it easy on the eyes.  Smiley

Sorry for the late response but I have been incredibly busy in the past week.
I hope there is still interest, I have shortened the "E" a bit and also extracted the logo from the coin in a simple approach:





Both available on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/116462858@N08/
Just drop me a message if I should adjust anything, I will try my best to do so. Smiley

Thanks to all for the great feedback and ideas.
This evening I will eventually come around to add the pure logo without the coin design. I would create two versions, one with the longer "E" and one with the shorter one as it was proposed by hydkyll.

@ashapasa
No worries. I specifically made a flat design as it was desired by most people. Personally I also like things a bit more flashy.
I am not a designer by any means but I have learnt quickly now that it is impossible to make everybody 100% happy. Smiley

I much prefer the "E" being the same height now, but personally, I don't like how the rim reminds of a casino chip.

Thanks for your honest feedback. I think I got stuck a bit on some of the elements in that design. Smiley

Here are my last two attempts to play a bit with the basic idea:


As mentioned, all proposals are available on this flickr:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/116462858@N08/

I will quit working on these for now in order to leave room for some other ideas from other people.

Really cool, but can we get a "flat" version. Like something that would feel at home in iOS. Also, can you make a version without the coin, but just the 8 lines representing NEM? Actually, I was sketching logos last night and came up with the same idea as you, representing NEM with the 8 lines. I think it is the way to go for a logo.

Ok, flattened it quite a bit more and also aligned the characters:



I think the variety for this design is now big enough as a proposal. Smiley

I hope we're not ciritzizing you too much - Just wan't to get it right Smiley
Was it on prupose to not perfectly align the lines ? I feel like the "E" is supposed to move up a bit.

Constructive criticism is always highly welcome. Smiley
Yes it is not perfectly aligned, I have tried to keep it simply and reproducable by using the arial unicode ms font. I will check this evening if there are nicer options to align the lines.

I am not really a fan of flat designs to be honest, but I will create a flat version as well when I am home again.

As for the 8 lines, I think one nice thing about it is that you can easily reproduce it, as the "trigram for heaven" character (☰) is part of unicode charsets:

This is really great! We should make a "white" version too.
This is such a great design that we could probably make t-shirts/leather jackets with this coin on it.

Thank you for the kind words! Looking forward to see the first NEM leather jacket. Cheesy

I have also added a light design:

How can i make a pic inside?

You mean how to post a picture? You can post a picture by providing a link to a picture within img tags, for example like this:

They look pretty cool but they also look a little ancient for the NEW economy movement Smiley Just my 2 cents.

Thank you very much for your feedback!
I think gold might not have been the best choice, so I have tried my best to modernize the proposal a bit. Smiley

I have also tried myself at a coin design. Unfortunately I have not figured out how to upload them to the mentioned flickr album, but they are available here:

For someone who is not an expert on details it would be nice to sum up some comparsions for the different client options in the initial post.

What about a lightweight local client like DUB which has recently be released for digitalcoin?
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: [ANN] Dub - A Lightweight Client for Digitalcoin on: February 03, 2014, 10:42:03 PM
It is a fantastic project and I think it really marks another milestone for DGC.
I have found a few display bugs on my Mac, but as this is still a very early version I am very positive that those will be cleaned out at some point. Will wait for the update on Saturday and then check again. Smiley

I registered somewhere on the first 20 pages but did not hear back.. it would be good to conduct a list of people who got in in the different stages, maybe on the main post. Additionally of course you could also send a PM as a confirmation.
In order to motivate people to spread the word and contribute to the project I think it is important to involve them.
