Hi all. My name is Ken. I’m a crypto enthusiast interested n the blockchain technology. I’m very interested to see how this project develops. Reading through the forum has been a treat while somewhat daunting at the same time. Hopefully I will eventually have my mind wrapped around the entirety of what’s going on here.
Welcome, Ken! Feel free to start a new thread if you have questions about anything in the white paper.
Welcome! Most of us went through the same learning curve when we found out about NuBits. The great thing is that this forum is really, really friendly; we don’t tolerate abuse here. Chances are if you have questions we can point you in the right place to find answers.
To say that my friend mention NuBits, and after i read the Wite Paper I am intresteded in the NuBits Software.
Specifically, I would like to feature NuBits on a web site that i developing.
Awesome! Welcome to the community. If you need help with anything let us know. We have more technical documentation on docs.nubits.com and we’re glad to answer any questions you have.
Hi, i am teeneagle, newly graduated from architecture and urban design school, hoppiest illustrator graphic and product designer.
My main interest is “OffGrid Alternatives”, Earthships, water harvesting, power generating and storing, permaculture, Meshnet and ofcoarse decentralized money.
In the past year i have been studying every option available to provide an alternative digital payment methods for the Non-Banked people in my country, but nothing seemed to be efficient or government proof.
Then, three months earlier i found about Bitcoin, i was very enthusiastic until i started my painful journey of searching the cheapest way to get some, considered every option and i couldn’t manage to find a better deal than LocalBitcoin with 110% of the market price, this made me much aware about the huge obstacles between the Non-Banked people and the Cryptocurrencies, couple of days later Bitcoin lost 25% of its price, and this made me sure that Cryptocurrencies will never be popular here.
Another week later i realized the Bitcoin sustainability issues, found about Peercoin and immediately bought some, since then the peercoin community have helped me alot and i managed to contribute in translating the Peercoin.net to Arabic.
At the first after Nubits announcement i was little skeptical until i realized the Nubits potentials after reading @Cybnate Vision, now I think Nubits can be the Ultimate solution to the accessibility of cryptocurrencies -and the online goods and services accepting them- in my local market, and i have been thinking about it for the past couple of days to figure out how to give an extraordinary deal to the Non-Banked people that they cant refuse no matter how skeptical they are, i think now i have a good idea about a system of partnership between Nushares holders and local resellers around the world to give the Non-Banked people 1 Nubit for 1$ which can buy a 1$ worth of goods and services Anywhere accepts any cryptocurrency, who can compete with this? well the governments can ofcoarse and thats why the legal issues are the top concern right now if the Nubex can be developed any time soon !
Sorry for the long post but i thought you might like to have an idea about the potential markets for Nubits and the huge value it can afford and painful obstacles it can overcome, at least from my silly point of view
Been playing with bitcoin for a while.
Liked checking out some of the new things that altcoins have been doing, but after a new one every day I lost interest.
Heard about NuBits at Money 20/20 and it got my interest
Hello Nu people,
Got into BTC after China went crazy last year. Really like cryptos and what they can do. Earlier this year, after personal developments, I couldn’t afford to remain invested in coin because of the volatility. I was very excited when my friend told me about NuBits because I think it is just what the coin world has needed. I can hold coin without having to play speculator game. The real value of cryptos is utility not cashing in on price pumps. I’ll be lurking around trying to learn and help as I can.
Happy to hear about ya’ll.
Welcome to the forums, gballs!
Hey everyone! I am Scott. Though my username is GreatScott, you can just call me Scott. My real name isn’t Scott, but now I am just rambling.
I spent a couple days looking over NuBits and was pretty excited about the prospects of this technology. I am definitely a sound money guy when it comes to monetary policy, so this all feels kind of weird setting interest rates for a currency, but I bought me some NSR anyways.
Glad to be on the board with all of you! Nice site design, Team!
I have seen several new nicknames posting on this forum but no replies to this topic (maybe the ‘latest’ view?) !
We also have a thread for answering questions from newcomers if needed : Welcome, newcomer! Ask questions here
I’m sure there are new people here because of Ben’s recent interview. Bumping this just in case they want to introduce themselves.
Bumping again for anyone who is finding out about us today! Please consider introducing yourself if you are a lurker on the forums.
Somehow I missed this thread. Thanks for bumping it! My introduction is long overdue.
Technology has been part of my life since I was young, and I’ve found that I have developed myself into a bit of a jack of all trades – sysadmin/netadmin, software developer with C++/Qt skills, and a small business entrepreneur on the side. My day job is directly related to the Internet.
I remember reading about a vague concept of cryptocurrency in (I think) 2600 Magazine about 15 years ago, and thought of the concept as completely revolutionary and an imminent complement to the dot.com boom. I stumbled into Bitcoin in 2011 when I heard the alleged stories about homes being raided by law enforcement because they interpreted the homes’ high energy consumption being used to grow marijuana. I knew something valuable was going on, and needed to understand what. At the time, difficulty was somewhere around 90,000.
I got in to Peercoin on its launch day, knowing that Proof of Stake was ultimately more sensible than Proof of Work, but yet Proof of Work had its value in enabling a sensible form of distribution for a coin launch. It was natural that Nu would come across my radar due to its ties to Peercoin.
I was very skeptical of Nu on its launch day because – very frankly – it looked like a premine scam. The block diagram showing the entities left me with the feeling that the complexity would be used to take value away from me by some sleight of hand.
I was turned from skeptic to believer primarily through this forum – the maturity of the team members, the diversity of skills, and the mindset in many that know that the most difficult days and hardest work is still ahead.
I’m delighted to be with you on this project, and am looking forward to using my skills to further it.
Hello Nu Community,
In early 2014 the whole buzz around BItcoin made me interested in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies and I quickly started to dig deeply into this fascinating area. PoS consensus algorithms particularly catched my interest. My background is computer science (not directly cryptography or economics related) and I love programming.
After I reimplemented the Peershares concept for another PoS algorithm I began to read more and more about the NuShare concept and became very excited about it because it decentralizes the decision process in a perfectly sufficient yet simple (and therefore robust) way. This combined with the collective goal to maintain the currency at a pegged unit could in fact work.
I bought NSR from the market and used the one week min age wisely to select my motions in a responsible way. I am looking forward to reading a lot of interesting discussions on the development of this project and hope to become a valuable member of the community.
I got into bitcoin during the march 2013 bubble, riding the volatility, but mostly learning about the technology behind it. I was amazed at how revolutionary it was, despite its flaws. then I started learning about altcoins, and how they could address some of the problems with bitcoin. This is the beauty of open source software- anyone can just fork it and try something new. most projects will die out or become a small niche. but a few will take off.
it’s increasingly apparent that volatility is one of the biggest flaws in bitcoin, (and most alts), and nubits is one possible way to account for that volatility. I still have a lot of research to do… but it’s going to be a wild ride!
I am Oscar Darmawan, CEO of Bitcoin.co.id - Biggest Bitcoin Exchange in Indonesia. We have about 42,000 registered verified members in our site and handling 200-400 Bitcoin daily. I am interested with concept of Nubits that pegged into US dollar.
Because of our belief in Nubits concept, we have open Nubits/Bitcoin in our exchange 5 minutes ago with 0% trading fee (forever). Our Nubits/BTC exchange can be accessed in here: https://vip.bitcoin.co.id/nbtbtc
Hot diggity! Welcome to the forum!
I hope this finds you all well.
I’m a crypto enthusiast // miner and hope to learn more about Nushare and nubits.
Wishing you all the best in this new year.
