I’d like to bid 500 US‑NBT for 500,000 NSR.

I’d like to bid 800 US NuBits at 0.002 price (US‑NBT/NSR) (equaling 400,000 NuShares).


1000 NSR available.

A bids 500 US‑NBT at price P on Monday.
B bids 1000 US‑NBT at price P on Tuesday.

A wins and B wins the remainder, i.e. half of their bid.


I began the auction saying minimum bid is “500,000 NSR or 500 US‑NBT”, and later changed to “500,000 NSR (500 US‑NBT)”. Motion says “500,000 NSR”, but I have and will accept bids at 500 US‑NBT this auction.

In draft I set end of Thursday because I intended four days of bidding, but then went by motion which says until end of Friday. End of Friday 2016–06–17 UTC applies.


Thank you! I know it is a burden.

I have only 250 NBT. Anyone wants to collaborate with me and add 250 NBT to reach the minimum biddable of 500 NBT?

You can buy NBT quite cheap :wink:


good point.

Your call. Please check for typos and represent Nu professionally and honestly.

Suggest improvements. Wiki post.

haha I just bought 1000 NBT for 300$

here’s what Nu should do — put some of the weight on the shoulders of the traders. Deliberately remove buy walls sometimes so the peg is lost but the traders will then rush in to buy cheap nbt that they hope to sell later. as more traders start to do this the peg will start holding on its own. checkmate


So it is not a bad thing that we lost the peg. We learned that some speculators are ready to bet on the recovery and therefore buy nubits.

I wouldn’t go that far, but I think there’s a lot we can learn anyhow. If we get NuBits back up or another product rolling, the event should have made us more resilient in areas we otherwise may have neglected, as we did.

Is this a (small) step in order to recover NuBit’s peg once more?

I don’t wanna be pessimistic but a Lot of 3M NSR is only .3% of NSR’s marketcap.

Shouldn’t we have to auction more NSR to burn more NBT in order to increase its price faster and more significantly?

Nevertheless, congratulations for already being taking action instead of wasting time with endless discussions.

Actions are needed as soon as possible in order to recover from a momentaneous loss of confidence in the system.


My understanding is that the 100M nsr, if approved by voting, will be sold/auctioned to support peg recovery.

How much nsr to sell/auction is the subject of discussion here.

Where does this figure come from?
Is the auction primarily intending to burn NBT?
What is the general motive and purpose?

from last week’s buyback calculation (expressed in $) and a market price.

Have you seen this?
