Nu blockchain statistics. Poll closed. Data presented

Glad to see Nu shareholders begin to do accounting.
Could you tell me if the peg at spread of 2%, given with same NBT trade volume in the first 1.5 years, how much revenue can you get?

I can check everyday’s trade volume here, but difficult to summarize it.

Nowadays, Nu has 700,000NBT debts, for a 550 days(1.5years) period, if you can charge 1272NBT as a spread trade fee, on 2% ratio, means the trade volume of NBT per day is 64,000NBT, it seems that Nu can achieve 64,000NBT average daily volume easily.

It’s stupid to give up spread pegging. This team doesn’t know how to do business at all, hope community learn it quickly if there was a 2nd chance.

In fact if the official spread is 5%, and leave the room for volunteer LP to operate on their own, i.e. they are self funded and self management, LP can become a zero expenditure business. Just like BTC miners are all self management without compensasion from outside.


It’s not possible as most transactions happened off-chain in exchanges.

Still not possible. For the same 100 nbt volume, if you trade 100 once the fee is 100 times smaller than trading 1 nbt 100 times.

You can get each day’s volume off chain, on exchange, if you patient enough.

For the same 100 nbt volume, if you trade 100 once the fee is 100 times smaller than trading 1 nbt 100 times.

There is 2% spread between our Buy and sell wall, if someone buys 100NBT and sells 100NBT, twice trade, 200NBT trade volume and charged 2NBT. If someone buys 1NBT and sells 1NBT, 2NBT trade volumem, charged 0.02NBT, if he repeats 100 times, charged 2NBT.

Oh OK. I was saying exchange fee which are fixed.

In the spread case we need trade history of all LPC and pools.

btw this thread is made to discuss on chain data. I am not going to discuss off-chain tx in details here.

The preliminary conclusion is the 2-5% spread can be a sufficient revenue for peg, at least at NBT/USD pair.

BTW, we can do some experiments on BKC if B&C released. And BTC is a very very bad accounting unit for its volatility, of course USD is good accounting unit I should use.

This matches @BusinessGuy s insights here.


Off topic,BTW.

But @BusinessGuy as a guy with 20years business experimence, he is right, and some community members such as @masterOfDisaster and I (early as Sep 2014) all agree with the spread pegging.

I know there are some opinions disagree with spread pegging, if so, let us do the experiments on BKC since BKC is a blank paper and we had no pegging plan at all.

If the first output of the transaction is empty (0 value and empty scriptPubKey), then it’s a CoinStake that generates 40 NSR. This transaction may have a fee that reduces the reward if it’s too large, but I’m not sure this can happen in practice.

If there’s only one input and its hash is 0:

  • if it’s an NSR transaction and “n” is -1 then it’s a CoinBase (and getrawtransaction mention it’s a coinbase). If it’s in the first 400 blocks then it’s the initial share generation, otherwise its value is zero and only there to make the network work.
  • if it’s an NSR transaction and “n” is -2 then it’s an NSR grant
  • if it’s an NBT transaction and “n” is -1 then it’s an NBT grant

No. I think there was a plan to add a new way to burn that would make them distinguishable but it’s not been implemented.


For example tx 66994993d90fd35a1dfa98fc95b5c0322df53c531a226030cb14acf3511d2a9a , which is the 2nd tx included in block 401, it’s 1st vout is empty

   "vout" : [
           "value" : 0.0,
           "n" : 0,
           "scriptPubKey" : {
               "asm" : "",
               "hex" : "",
               "type" : "nonstandard"

but its 5th vout has an extra 40nsr

            "value" : 60040.0,
            "n" : 5,
            "scriptPubKey" : {
                "asm" : "03e4743e988886dcb13546cf18dd30b832edb11e73c17d9ea18b3aae64a1f1f53c OP_CHECKSIG",
                "hex" : "2103e4743e988886dcb13546cf18dd30b832edb11e73c17d9ea18b3aae64a1f1f53cac",
                "type" : "pubkey",
                "reqSigs" : 1,
                "addresses" : [

As the total total vin = 100000.000000 total vout = 100040.000000, This tx looks like a POS block transaction instead of a CoinStake that generates 40 NSR.

Hi Guys,

Actually I am in favor of a spread peg in that I see Nubits as a currency and I have never seen a currency market without a spread even if it is pegged. HKD is a good example. It is pegged to the USD and does not trade at mid.

However, my main concern is revenue and also Nubits Unique Selling proposition (which I will make a post about later today). As mentioned you could have a spread, a transaction fee or both. If for example the view is that US-NBT are to be perceived to be fungible with USD and therefore a spread is not workable then a transaction fee must be charged instead. Either way the effective amounts actually received and paid by the Nubits holder would either be or need to equate to that overtly displayed in a spread. It’s just about the optics.

Also the 2% to 5% was really a big guess on my part. The Transaction Fee% (or spread%) should = Liquidity Engine maintenance fee + BTC volatility fee* + any other cost of operation + profit margin *If possible the BTC volatility fee should be priced like a currency option premium so that the charge is more in volatile periods.

In my opinion (for what it’s worth) if the fee required is more than the market can support based on say 12 months of operation, then either the model needs to be changed to add more value or to create more efficiency. Also the way in which the fee is expressed must be easily understood by an average user.

Can anyone tell me what the tx charges are now to Nubit holders? I have seen much discussion but am unclear as to the actual outcome.


most pay 0.01 nbt fee per transaction. if you bundle a lot of unspent tr output and send them, the fee is 0.01 nbt per kb of transaction record in the blockchain.

Thanks @mhps . For the uninitiated is 0.01 nbt per transaction the same as USD 1 cent per transaction (independent of amount) or 1% of the transaction amount? Sorry about the ignorance.

it’s a flat $0.01. Even you send 1tr nbt.

this one is being discussed. It use fee to burn a large amount of liability to restore the peg, while leaving a way out for nbt holders, if they park

I’m not sure what a “POS block transaction” is to you. I’d say it’s exactly a CoinStake that generates 40 NSR.

I mean it looks like the transaction is from a POS minting and the 40NSR is the reward for finding a POS kernel.

I thought when you said

You meant it was an NSR grant of 40NSR. But now I understand you also call mintng reward coinstake.

So is this correct: for an NSR transaction whose vout > vin, if the vin is 0 it is a grant ("coinbase printing“ above); if vin > 0 it’s from POS minting.


Thanks for the info. Ok so I think that most people in the forum would acknowledge that 1 cent for a BTC/NBT transaction is practically the same as being free, especially if no allowance is made for the transaction amount and hence the volatility risk. It’s good to see attempts made to try and address this. For Nubits revenue is the life blood, the injury is almost fatal but a transfusion is in the wings :slight_smile:

By the way, I would like to ask to shareholders –
How much exactly is the cost incurred to the possible loss of funds in centralized exchanges?

Technically all the funds. I believe @mhps estimated the risk of exchange failure somewhere at 4%. So we need to earn at least 4% of the funds on exchange just to break even regarding exchange risk.
