[Passed] Promoting Nubits to internet payment processors, exchanges, and gateways

Maybe another solution for hedging against volatility on BTC/NBT is to track a volatility index.
When the volatility is high, the fee for exchanging nbt or btc (from the perspective of a trader) with a lpc is high, when the volatility is low, the fee for exchanging nbt or btc with a lpc is low, relatively.

The thing is that Nu cannot keep forever on providing cheap liquidity when volatility is high.
It is basically giving away money.
Sorry for insisting, but I believe this is the major reason why we have seen so fews lpc in 8 months of history…

I concur -

Open for voting.

Discussion for Nu Exchange Integration guide and LPC grant proposal template have been started.


I like this motion very much, my only concern is as mentioned earlier that I am not exactly sure about its consequences. Its more or less the basic question: Who will do what?

If “who” is just the community, then there is no motion required for this, because it doesn’t result in any responsibility. I would really like to see names in the motion.


The email/messages will be sent by official PR/marketing and if PEGs come to ask technical questions on installing Nu then developers in Nu team will be needed to help. That is the minimum the motion is asking the Nu team to do.

I think the Nu team manager will answer to the motion if it passes and see to that this gets done by the responsible member, given various constraints. If the requested tasks cannot be done or the progress is too slow we will demand explanations. I think it’s better done this way or everyone will be forced to grab the steering wheel and step on gas and brake.

I had the same response as Creon initially and I prefer to see someone tasked or agreeing to the work. Knowing that Jordan has said before that he would follow passed motion within his power and abilities it is likely that he will answer.

My problem is that you might be asking something which is not possible within the current priorities we don’t know about, but are likely to finish of the next release of the client (v2.0?). I’m interested to hear at what cost you want JL to proceed with this motion and what kind of action/response would be acceptable. A counter motion from JL confirming the priorities as they are and nullifying your motion, which I would expect?

I agree that the current liquidity provisioning model is not sustainable without strong growth, so steps towards a better system are certainly useful, but at what priority. Dropping everything at hand and focussing on this?

Hope you can elaborate a bit on this as I struggle to vote for it in its current form. You may blame me coming late to the discussion though :wink:

Cost? I guess

  1. @tomjoad (Sorry tom, they have to see names :wink: ) will spend 3 days maximum to polish up the installation guide, take a look at the site list, draft the message, let the community comment on it, and send them out to the PEGs. Another 1 day total replying general questions or direct them to the appropriate sources / forums. Another 1 day for step 4.
  2. some developers (@Ben, @woolly_sammoth, @desrever ?) spending 2 day total maximum answering technical questions from PEG technical staff.

(edit: correct me if I made this sound too easy.)

What is acceptable? Messages sent. Feed back from PESs received. Questions answered. Or, problem understood if we get no response from any of the PEGs.

You really like chains of motions :smiley:

You have the perfect excuse since you’ve got a lot of things going.


I think things need to be done gradually.
So Nu should not give up supporting the peg via liquidity pools = providing liquidity to traders 1), right now in any case but that does not prevent us from starting to sell nubits through PEGs = selling nbts to Internet consumers 2) since ultimately 2) is the goal, at least from my perspective.

Not really, waste of time… Prefer to get it right the first time.
That’s why you get my questions :wink:

Sounds like we have some people identified who may respond and some tasks and success factors identified.
That is a good start. Can I assume this motion as a question from the Shareholders to the people you mentioned and Jordan as the lead? Normally I’m not keen to coerce people into something they might not be willing to do, although they are getting paid by the Shareholders so they are answerable I suppose. And I still think that what you propose is worth doing.

Therefore I will add your motion to my datafeed.

That is our difference. I assume the team manager is answerable to the shareholders. You think his individual members are.

That answers exactly what the motion is asking, “Should this be done? By these steps?”.

I don’t disagree, I think you are right however I’m not intimate on how the work is managed. When JL dishes out all the jobs on behalf of the Shareholders then you are right, which is likely from what I’ve seen to date. It only begs the question why you didn’t direct your motion straight to JL in the first place.

Because I trust the Nu Team manager will use his judgement to carry out what needs to be done, given all the contraints and priorities of tasks at hand, once the Shareholders’ wish is shown as the motion passes. I specified what “the Nu marketing manager” and “the Nu team” to do in the motion when official voice and action is needed to be shown, and that should be enough.

In fact the Shareholders don’t pay the Nu Team members. The manager does. It’s a relevant point.

This probably should go to a different thread.

I think it is a very important point.

This motion has passed.

Bright news

At one time I saw it getting more than 70% blocks. Thanks everyone who voted!


Can you please outline the expected course of actions?

What I think a logical course of actions are, as listed in the motion, is -

1 Prepare the Nu Exchange Integration Guide

  • Discuss the Nu Exchange Integration guide improvement here.
  • Formulate an LPC grant proposal template here.

I hope @tomjoad can take an active role in the abve steps.

2 Contact a list of selected PEGs

  • Determine the first-round contact list based on discussions of the near and mid term plan.
  • I hope @tomjoad can draft the email / message to send to the PEGs because he writes so well.
  • Send the messages presumablly by tom

3 Help the PEGs to integrate Nubits

I think the tech staff of PEGs will ask questions in the forum or send PM/emails to Nu team developers. Nu team developers should actively help them out.
The complexity of integration should be much less than that to cryptoexchanges because most PEGs don’t allow users to ask/bid. There is no orderbook.

4 Contact more potential partners

Based on experience of the first round of contacting and integrating, contact more PEGs, again presumablly by @tomjoad.
