Decentralized long term USNBT purchase and burn program

The price of USNBT has vastly outperformed most other cryptocurrencies for the period this buyback program has been running. Since late June when this program started, cryptocurrency excluding Bitcoin is down a full 50%. The difficulty of growing in a sector that contracts 50% in 13 weeks cannot be understated. US NuBits hold 75% of the value they had on June 26th, the recent peak of the cryptocurrency market. If you invested an equal amount of money in an average cryptocurrency and US NuBits on June 26th, your USNBT would be worth fully 50% more than your average cryptocurrency. While it is not emotionally satisfying to lose value for any reason, the performance of USNBT has been objectively outstanding compared to its peers. We outperformed peers by 25% in a single quarter. If we can continue that performance, we can be confident the peg will return.

How much NBT supply is left?

@Ghaleon There is about 15 million left in circulation. Recently someone parked about a million (don’t know who it was; not me), which I guess could be viewed as a signal of confidence, but who knows.

You burned the same twice?

Even after all these burn’s the price has not increased a bit.Infact the price is going down.

@EwoutM Not sure what you mean about burning the same twice. There was an error where some of the posts had the wrong week number so I edited that and didn’t change anything else.

Week 18 is in progress now.

As mentioned above by a couple people, including myself, this is actually a good thing. We want to delay a price rise for as long as possible, so the buybacks have maximum effectiveness in burning as much supply as possible. The less NuBits there are, the less Nu owes.

Withdrawals are temporarily disabled at SouthXchange, which is preventing the USNBT targeted for this week’s burning from being withdrawn. We expect deposits and withdrawals will be enabled soon, and the burn will be completed.

* In addition to the wallet issues mentioned above, I had another technical issue with the trading engine and/or web UI where some trades were going through but not being reported. As a result I ended up buying too much NBT (using some of my own BTC in addition to the budgeted amount), around 10k-20k extra. Without digging through the detailed trading records, which would be very time consuming, I can’t tell exactly how much NBT was purchased using the budgeted amount, so I have withdrawn and burned the (generously) estimated amount of 70000. In fact, the price paid for NBT was subjectively higher this week (therefore the quantity purchased lower), as there did not seem to be much aggressive selling. Perhaps the market is starting to tighten up? We’ll see in upcoming weeks.

@smooth has funded the third quarter of the buyback program. Using the methodology detailed in the original post, the NSR price is $0.000610571. At this price, the $50,000 investment equals 81,890,500.7019 NSR.

The December 28th close price for BTC is $7,317.99.

50,000 / 7317.99 = 6.8324 BTC to be sent to 3Lv9C4JtFQmVMhFtyYK43GncwweMi341NT.

It has been received.

The six months that this USNBT buyback program has been running have been a difficult time for all blockchain assets, which have declined an average of around 50% since their peak six months ago (excluding Bitcoin). USNBT has outperformed in this difficult environment. Buying a crypto that has a constant buyback program is certainly better than buying a crypto that doesn’t. While most cryptos increase in supply steadily, USNBT circulating supply is contracting by more than 1% per month. As this continues for another 6 months, it is expected that it will raise the price of USNBT, which should bring more attention to what a compelling purchase they are, prompting a restoration of the peg as in 2016.
