Decentralized long term USNBT purchase and burn program

I have proceeded with the next step of the deal which is funding the 2-of-2 multisig.


I have received the first week (1/13) installment of the returned BTC collateral and begun buying NBT for burning.


I’ve completed the first purchase of NBT

NBT purchased: 50065 NBT
BTC spent: 0.32587913
price/BTC: 0.00000651
price/USD: 0.0819

Burn will be posted soon

Process will repeat next week.


Where are the NBT purchases being made? Are you buying in one big chunk each time or is it being spread out? I don’t see a 0.32 BTC transaction on SouthXchange…

In fact this week it was all purchased on southxchange but not in one chunk (which would often be quite expensive given limited liqudity) but rather gradually over a period of a few days.

Going forward I intend to buy whereever I can get the best price in order to burn the maximum number of NBT.

I have begun the purchase of the second week’s installment of NBT, although I have not yet completed the burn from the first week (I required some clarification on some wallet functions, which I have now received) and while I have received a partially signed transaction from the Nu team for return of the second collateral installment, I do not intend to broadcast it until I have competed the first-week burn.

These steps should occur within the next few days at the latest.

Hello Smooth,

You didn’t burn any NBT this week?

Last week was week 3 (see burn above). The burn happened quite early in the week because I was able to buy NBT quickly from aggressive NBT sellers.

As you can see from the multisig address we are now in the fourth weekly cycle.

For next week (4), the NBT buying is going a bit slower and is still in progress.

Any idea why price is going down with the burns instead of up? A bit concerning.

My guess is everyone assumes it is dead, so only a small percentage of NBT owners are paying attention and know about the burn programs. I’m not sure that is a bad thing though, as low prices means more burned coins at less cost to Nu.

Exactly. I’m more interested in maximizing the number of coins burned than short term price increases. The former will be a sustainable fix for the peg and not just a temporary pump. (Or at least the foundation of a sustainable fix, some further changes are needed to prevent the situation from happening again, but at least it moves in the right direction.)

Since this USNBT buyback and burn program began two months ago, the total market capitalization of the entire cryptocurrency space has declined 27%:

Of course, Bitcoin has outperformed the average while other cryptocurrencies have fallen even more than 27%, on average. This means that because US NuBits have maintained their value in this 2 month period, it is outperforming peers by more than 30% for July and August. If US NuBits continue this pattern of vastly outperforming the sector, we can be confident the peg will return.
