"One of the reasons Nxt is groundbreaking is because it gives the economy back to the people and re-establishes them as their own sovereigns over their destiny.  An economy is an expression of a political ideology.  Do not mistake us as just another cryptocurrency.  We are a movement."

Nxt :: descendant of Bitcoin

Nxt uses brand new software.  It’s not a fork of Bitcoin's source code.

Nxt is the first 100% Proof-of-Stake (PoS) currency.  Coins are earned solely by charging transaction fees.  Unlike other currencies with PoS mining, Nxt's PoS mining does not cause monetary inflation.  The total amount of Nxt in circulation is 1 billion.  Nxt is resistant to +90% attacks via its transparent forging algorithm.

Nxt improves different features of Bitcoin, removes some disadvantages (e.g. bloated blockchain) and resolves a big environmental issue.  Time between blocks is one minute.  This increases the rate of orphaned blocks, but makes it more convenient for the users.

Nxt doesn’t use so-called “scripts” aka predicates.  This simplifies and accelerates transaction processing.  Advanced features like multisig will be created on top of the core as 3rd party services.

Nxt is routable through Tor and I2P anonymous networks.

Nxt Clients

NXTclients.org has a comprehensive list of the clients available for NXT.

Nxt Development

We invite skilled Java programmers to join NXT core development team. You’ll get access to complete NXT source code. We need 2-3 developers now. If you are interested, please PM user Come-from-Beyond on bitcointalk.org with your e-mail address and your Java experience (very short description). We’ll check your forum posts to make sure that you’re not a troll and contact you via e-mail. If you don’t get my reply by the 10th of January then wait for the next round when we ask for more participants.

Please Run a Nxt Node

If you can run a Nxt node, it will help us stabilize and secure the network.  If you have invested in Nxt, it is beneficial to you to run a VPS to help to secure the Nxt network.  Hallmarking your node helps the network, but is not necessary.

Nxt Software Change Log

BE SURE TO CHECK THE SHA256 HASH OF YOUR DOWNLOAD!

If you're running GNU/Linux, the program sha256sum is standard on most versions of the OS.  Use the sha256sum command:
'sha256sum PATH_TO_NXT_DOWNLOAD'

If you're running OS X, a SHA-256 can be calculated using the openssl command in an open terminal (the terminal is located in /Applications/Utilities).
'openssl sha256 PATH_TO_NXT_DOWNLOAD'

If you're running Windows, use an online calculator to calculate the sha256 hash.  Upload the Nxt.zip file you downloaded, when the website asks for a file.

-----------------------------------------

Installation Instructions

How to Install Nxt Client w/ Pictures

Ubuntu/Debian
1 - Download and Install Java                     'sudo aptitude install openjdk-7-jre'
2 - Unzip 'nxt.zip'                                        'unzip nxt.zip'
3 - Go to your Nxt Directory                        'cd nxt'
4 - Start Nxt                                                 'java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -jar start.jar'

Windows
1 - Download and Install Java                      Oracle JDK 7
2 - Unzip 'nxt.zip'
3 - Go to your Nxt Directory                        'cd C:/PATH_TO_NXT_FOLDER'
4 - Start Nxt                                                 'java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -jar start.jar'

Mac
1 - Download and Install Java                     Oracle JDK 7
2 - Unzip 'nxt.zip'
3 - Go to your Nxt Directory                        'cd nxt'
4 - Start Nxt                                                 'java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -jar start.jar'

Open Nxt Client
- Open your browser and go to http://localhost:7874
- Click the "Lock" icon in the upper left corner to unlock your account.
- Enter your passphrase or if you don't have an account, enter your new passphrase.  Make sure you use a very random, complex password of at least 80 characters.  You can use 0-1, a-z, A-Z, special and national characters.

Security Tips

- Do NOT use the passphrase for your Nxt account on a VPS client.  Only use your Nxt passphrase on a local Nxt client.  Even if you connect to your VPS securely via SSH, you are still not safe because all VPSs have backdoors.
- 7874 (tcp) is used for P2P communication.
- 7875 (tcp) is used for the http web client.
- 7876 (tcp) is used for API commands.

It's not a problem. Someone announced an incorrect IP address (I see 88.198.210.2455 for example) and client tries to connect to it.

Please reference the Next API thread too.   Any ETA on when the new client functionality comes out?  I think the earlier version had messaging, but I did not see that in the last TEST client.  Will it be there?  I had some ideas for using that interesting feature.

BTW, is it NXT or XNT?  Guess we go with NXT.

Yes, Nxt will have a messaging feature too.

It's called Nxt (pronunciation "Next"), but the three letter currency code is XNT.

This is a poor decision to have it XNT as a ticker code; you're just looking to piss off dyslexics.

You can currently send, receive and mine Nxt.  Other features are currently being worked on.  The distributed currency exchange is scheduled to be working around January 3rd, 2014.

Nxt is just as operational as any other cryptocurrency.

You should add to the initial post that the client GUI can be accessed (after installing and launching the java client) by going to your browser and visiting this page:

http://localhost:7875/

In the GUI click the lock symbol to create a new account. You will be asked for a phraze. Select a long one (15+ chars!) as this phraze WILL BE YOUR WALLET. There is no user name, and no wallet file. The wallet IS the phraze you select when creating the account. Never give this phraze no anyone. If someone finds out this phraze he will get your wallet (from any computer!). After account creation you will get an account number (long number). This account number can be used to receive and send Nxt coins.

To send Nxt to another account use the arrow in the right upper corner (this is confusing to many).

- there is no WALLET in Nxt as well.  This word "WALLET" may lead to misunderstanding. Your phrase is your ACCOUNT.

I had no problem in previous versions, but in this new 2.9 I can't catch new blocks easily.
When it's open nothing changes in block height, just shows block catching, but no number change even after 30 mins waiting.
Only after I exit and re-open the browser and re-login into my account again, it shows some max. 50 to 100 block height change.
I am waiting to catch up the blockchain to send some tx. As I tried several times, it says: please wait until the blockchain become loaded..
Dunno how long it would take Sad

If you have MacOS try reinstalling jdk and jre - it helped me with the same problem but maybe it was something else who knows? Doesn't hurt to try though..

It takes 1 min to get the whole blockchain. If this doesn't happen, then delete *.nxt files and try again. Looks like u started to download the blocks but then lost connection to the peer and stuck.
