According to the rationales given in the OP and comments and sugestions made by the community, I propose the following near-term and mid-term plan to push Nubits adoption.
1. Prepare the Nu exchange integration guide
Payment processors and exchange gateways do not only offer exchange interfaces but also provide liquidity (acting like LPCs), we should add a section telling things that are not known outside Nu-sphere:
a) Nu allows payment processors and exchange gateways to apply for compensations fees from Nu shareholders at market-determined rates. The exchangers will need to post an LPC proposal for shareholders to vote. (a proposal template should be given: who, how much liquidity on NBT/USD, for how long, how often to report, promise to re-ballance or not at what frequency, how much fee is asked etc )
b) Whether to be an shareholder-approved LPC or not, in addition to buying Nubits from the market, exchangers can purchase Nubits from shareholders or Nu reserve fund custodians at $1/NBT.
2. Contact a list of selected payment processors and exchange gateways
We send official emails/messages to promising payment processors and exchange gateways to introduce Nubits, invite them to integrate Nubits, and point them to the integration guide.
There are hundreds payment processors and exchange gateways. It’s better we pick a small number to start with.
Here are a list top e-currency issuers listed in Method 1 in the OP
edit: add http://www.neteller.com
Somehow I don’t expect many of them will pay a lot of attention to Nubits because there must be many people proposing all kind of ideas for these big players. So I have chosen from those smaller processors and gateways listed by bestexchange for buying BTC with PM-USD. I looked at each of them, and selected the ones according to the criteria:
- Has English version web interface
- Trades PM USD (annotated after the link-- PM:PerfectMoney OK:OKpay PY:Payeer WM:webmoney EG:EgoPay) and BTC
- my webpage security alarm doesn’t go off
The ones with a “*” means they are also chosen in the PM partners list (see bellow). The ones in this list generally have better made, more professional interfaces. If you have other lists that can help to pick out the more active, liquid, developed, and potentially friendly exchanges, feel free to suggest.
edit: https://www.247exchange.com/ is asked in this post.
3. Help the processors and gateways to integrate
I expect contacted processors and gateways to do most of the integration work. However to accomplish a solid step using Method 1 and 2 in the OP, the Nu team and community might need to give some help to the processors and exchanges, because they may have various levels of development and cryptocurrency expertise, to vote on LPC proposals, and to help with testing. Nu should treat the interested processors and gateways as potential partners.
Once there are several processors and gateways that have Nubits integrated, we will contact price comparison and rating sites such as bestchange and OKchanger to suggest NBT be included. This will not only get more users to see NBT, but will help other exchanges to see the need to offer NBT, too.
4. Contact more potential partners
There are about 200 entries on PerfectMoney certified partners list . I looked at the first 60 or so and picked out about half of them using the same criteria above.

5. Make Method 3 code available
Once there are quite a few processors and gateways that have successfully integrated NBT/fiat, we will offer to acquire core code described in the OP, in exchange of bounty or nushares. The plan will get details once first several steps are done.
Please comment, especially from the Nu team. I see strategic importance in getting this done. I will put this forward as a motion if needed.
