What does Adam B Levine have to say about NXT?

" I have 8 projects that I am working on. So far we have two of them on Counterparty, one of them on Mastercoin.. I want to do one on NXT, pretty much as soon as possible. They have some of the best software out there as far as I have seen. The wallet is really outstanding. It's funny, it's like looking on what a future version of bitcoin will be. But, you know, it's here now and you can see it."

Did you watch the entire thing? He later states the distribution sucked.

I really should stop bagging out this coin considering I want to become rich from the next pump.

An IPO which enriched 70 odd people with 1 billion NXT. There was no timeframe and it was abruptly finished.

I think you are totally wrong in this one. Check the original BCNext thread and prove yourself.

Yes, the pre-sale was ended abruptly without warning while someone was interested in buying and asking for clarification on the deadline to invest, from https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=303898.480 :

Can we still join in between now and January 3? I haven't really seen any clear definition of a deadline.

I'm waiting for the answer. BCNext reads this thread.

Some changes in the plan:

1. Fundraising is over. That last 1 BTC, sent after the 2nd marking transaction, will be accepted but no more deposits should be made.
2. Nxt will be launched earlier than on the 3rd of January, right after the final test.
3. New Nxt users r supposed to be attracted by selling NXT and distributing via Nxt Faucet.
4. Messaging feature will be released later to avoid situation when somebody attempts to bloat the blockchain making it too huge for newcomers.

BTW we need one more bootstrapping server, coz 2 servers is not enough.
So, if I understand this correctly:

1) the main dev (BCNext) no longer posts directly to this thread but you purport to communicate with him and speak for him about the project, something we can't confirm,
2) the deadline for contributing BTC to acquire Nxt, which was originally described as being open until the genesis block was approved by the community sometimes at least a month from now, is now suddenly declared over with no advance warning; and
3) the BTC that were already sent to acquire Nxt, which the main dev (BCNext) promised earlier in this thread not to touch until the genesis block was generated, have now been moved.


About a week later, NXT was being sold at a 4762% markup at .000001 BTC/NXT over the original average pre-sale price of 0.000000021 BTC/NXT, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=345336.0;topicseen .

geez, a topic about NXT software, and after one post, it's a thread about distribution...again  Roll Eyes

you all should check out the slickest client instead: http://nxtra.org/nxt-client/ (still on TESTnet). Credit goes to wesleyh!

This will be the new reference client in a few weeks.

What happened to the NXT forum?.. forums.nxtcrypto.org is rather quiet; I know they lost their owner but still it's odd there isn't more.

A 2 months IPO.

It was so long and the return on investment was so big that the people who didn't invest will be frustrated and angry for eternity.

Missing the Nxt IPO when you had 2 months to invest is like failing your life. You must feel like the worst piece of shit in the world.

I totally understand why these people are obsessed with it but the truth is that there is 2 kind on people on earth :

- the ones that live in fear, complain and find excuses for their loser-life

- the ones that take risk and seize the opportunity but get over their losses

No need to point at them, they are revealing themselves every time the word "Nxt" is pronounced.

Hey all,
Adam here - If you think about NXT and XCP like "fundraisers" than you're missing the point.

They are not fundraisers, they are spreading-around-the-blame.   Both projects (NXT and counterparty) have anonymous developers, both of them have no mining to distribute coins as Satoshi did, and neither of them apparently needed development funds because NXT raised about $2000 worth of BTC and XCP burned 2100BTC.

So compare that to a method where they sell the tokens - Whose going to buy a new, proof of stake token from someone who won't even tell you their name?  Not many.

Compare it to a method where they give them away - They reward only people who wait for opportunities where they can get something for nothing and those people with more time than anything useful to do with it will become your first line of distribution, and will probably be happy with just about anything because there was no cost for them to acquire it.

But either raising a trivial amount of money (NXT) or simply saying "throw it in the fire and nobody will get it" (XCP) require a proof of give-a-shit and at least pretend to understand it enough to warrant throwing good money into a black hole for what might be a hoax or scam.   It's not ideal, but it's simple.

And because there is no giant pile of money, there is problem of how do you spend a giant pile of money.

As mentioned, I am building projects on all viable platforms, NXT is one of the top contenders from my analysis of the available options.

You don't have to believe me, but if you watch the hour+ hangout linked in the first post I think it'll be pretty obvious I'm not in the bag for any of the protocols, and I'm trying projects on all of them because I want to find out which one is best for which use-cases.

If you're just generally not seeing the point of "user created assets" that things like NXT, MSC, and XCP allow I would really recommend reading the free, recently released book by Tim Swanson on Smart Contracts, Smart Property and what all the hype is about.

i am also in all three projects (msc,xcp,nxt), what makes xcp or msc "easier" or let us say more useful, is that it is on top of btc. so people can send btc directly into the protocol, without first changing it on an exchange. second point is that the btc blockchain is proven for a few years... . for example xcp has engaged sergio lerner and peter todd for auditing, both are well known heads in the bitcoin community. nxt is trying hard to get their code audited by a third person.

anyway nxt is very promising in the longterm, but the useability is limited regarding adaption - what it needs is time

NXT failed at 1NXT fee system...
Where is point to use currency with such high fee...
Most gods is around ~20-50$ now fee 0,5$ this is in basis have fail a bit as currency.
If 1 NXT will cost 1000$ who will use it ?
Even with most advance features cost of using NXT outside exchange make it just pointless as currency...

In same time Bitcoin can cost 10000$ and you can pay 0,1$ fee or less for transfer...

But if we change NXT fee to 0,01 NXT that will probably hurt only that small players.

And today when projects with high lvl of development will arrive soon like NEM,Emunie,Exo,Entherum...
I don't say NXT is bad but that 1NXT fee is killing my interest.
