Statement on Status of NuBits and Liquidity 2018–03


#62

off to do smt else. I aint trading today at all. Fuck this shit.


#63

Unregulated markets guys. I hope y’all didn’t think there was some oversight or guarantees.

No one is obligated to buy either Nubits or Nushares.


#64

Its a game! I lost today, but more than some, less than others. Least I lost money I made on trading NBT already


#65

I’m sorry that you lost money. Makes me feel bad that people didn’t know how NuBits functions and the risks involved. Considering it each individual’s personal responsibility to research what they spend money on doesn’t improve their effective situations.

We’ve solved every problem yet (including past recovery of the peg), and I am not going anywhere until zero confidence remains in the future of NuBits.


#66

Jooize, the fud is only because we’re seeing the free fall of USNBT on bittrex and when I browse the order book, bid order sequences seem horrible. It simply means that if more people will sell NBT, we will see it at $0.70. That would be a sharp loss for us. Please, please do something. Maybe you guys can borrow a limited sum before the need of funds increase.

Anyways, what is your expected time period that you believe will get the NBT fixed? I know that you can’t tell exact timing but based on the history, you could just predict the time for us. Please keep sharing the positive news and help building trust and confidence again. Communication is much important.


#67

I perfectly well know how it functions and the risks involved. I am not upset, I do profit off buying $0.97 NBT and selling $1.00 NBT. Looks like those days are done for awhile. But I really believe if the NBT had kept more money in tether, and not in BTC, these problems could have been avoided, and liquidity would still exist for you, I just wouldn’t be able to make money this way.


#68

It seems to be that this really isnt a stable coin like kowala is. There should not need to be a backing by currency. yYou just need the right algo to keep it stable. From my perspective how is this not just like any other traded coin?


#69

Nubits is an experimental currency and I do respect letting it play out following the conventions of an experiment. I will be watching to see where this leads.


#70

NBT at 0.79, looks like we all are now fucked up.

I don’t understand why those morons want to get out! it would be normal if there wouldn’t be such stupid traders.


#71

and tada, NuShares are down by -67% according to coinmarketcap. @jooize what’s going on?

Edit: What the hell! I can’t believe my eyes, am I seeing $0.68 per NU? Is this your stable coin?

When you are getting your fucking reserve? will it come when it hits $0.20 again?


#72

If nobody buys NuShares it cannot work. Market cap went from $60M to half a $M in the past few weeks. NuShares hodlers are the most irrational group in crypto world.


#73

I’m not technical but I believe the major difference between tether and nubits is nubits doesn’t have the printer. So liquidity will have to be literally injected by volunteers. NSR has, in the past, done very well from a crypto investment standpoint. So, if one is interested in continuing the experiment, one approach is buying NSR.


#74

When btc price rises, the management team sells nbt and buys btc.
When nbt prices go badly, the management buys nbt again.
Is not the management now doing such a scam?
tihs is fuckin scam coin?


#75

@yr334: Your post was caught by the spam filter.

NuBits are pegged to fiat currencies, and shareholders (NuShare voters) issue tokens to satisfy the demand and hold price down at $1.00. Proceeds from sales enter as Bitcoin, Ether, …, which get placed on the opposite side of the order book in order to provide backing liquidity for the sold NuBits. Amount kept on exchanges is limited to reduce impact of exchange default risk, and part of the proceeds go to NuShare buybacks if the asset reserve is above a certain valuation in relation to circulating NuBits. Further details in earlier explanation:


#76

This is the exact definition of a scam, I will petition bittrex to delist this coin right away. Where are all the bitcoins of the buyers? how did they exit the system so fast?


#77

Nushares have very few trades, and as time goes by, a lot of money is needed to get back to $ 1. Are there any countermeasures against this? You are a cheater because you have issued a coin from the beginning with a garbage - like plan.
I will strongly protest to remove this coin from bittrex. Do you know how many people lost money because of this damn coin?


#78

What is the Equilibrium Reserve and why is there a $4.606 millions? You have somewhere $4.6 millions and letting NBT to die? That really raises some serious questions.


#79

They are presumably likely to be taking advantage of the rise in bit coin. You have to remove them from the bittrex before more victims can be found.


#80

Equilibrium Reserve is the threshold between NuShare sales and buybacks. When the Asset Reserve is worth more than the Equilibrium Reserve, NuShare buybacks commence, and conversely when the Asset Reserve is valued lower than the Equilibrium Reserve, NuShare sales are performed to increase immediate liquidity toward equilibrium.

I say “immediate liquidity” because the deeper liquidity tiers 5 and 6 bring liquidity not immediately accessible.


#81

What I don’t understand is why don’t you sell as many Nushares as necessary to refill the buy side as fast as possible? What is the problem?
