Of the 735013.307400 NBT in circulation, 735013.307400 - 30000.000000 = 705013.307400 NBT are outstanding.

106.822468 - 241.782402 = -134.959935 BTC (76722.545127 - 105751.996110 = -59029.450983 NBT) are in the share buyback pool.
The Standard is 5.00 percent of this, -6.7480 BTC (~ -2951.47 NBT)

Ok, looks good to me, but this is for today not friday. We need one number for the week, and I’m sticking with the -\$2446.59. Of course, it is up to FLOT ultimately, but I’m pretty sure everyone is going along with what you and I are saying.

The last math meant to show the math only.

Ehhhh, well I think we are the only ones who know what is going on.

I try to follow as good as I can

I’d like to explain some of the more obscure points in current way to calculate. The current way is really calculating BTC and PPC, NSR reserve flows. NuSafe is only considered by subtracting it from our nubits liability.. Parked Nubits are not considered.

So the line

should be considered a suggestion if NuSafe is not to be used. Assume 100k NBT will stay parked next week we would have 200BTC less liability. If half of NuSafe is further coverted as T4 reserve in BTC, we would have

41.610685 - 175.598544 = -133.987859 BTC (35764.355759 - 87626.307390 = -66861.951631 NBT) are in the share buyback pool.
The Standard is 5.00 percent of this, -6.6994 BTC (~ -3343.10 NBT).

Can NuSafe be used to substitute NSR buy back? The Standard and Core doesn’t really say.

Id really rather we operate based off the 4726.93 number. NuSafe deployment will be used for next calculation, we don’t know how long those funds will last either.

Do we then sell NSR until the number is reached?

Just one nsr amount, determined before taking them to market. Of course FLOT can do what they feel they must, but it is important that we stick to the plan for now.

Let s move fast. Btc might rise even further.

We could just sell them for nbt via blind auction and we wouldnt have to worry about the btc price or rushing the market.

Doing this in a hurry is not likely to get a better price than keeping a level head.

This was the week when btc started to rally almost continuously

The buyback pool was -40 BTC then, meaning that the pool was short on fund. During the rally in mid-April and late May Nu T4 reserve lost rate was about 90BTC/week to defend the peg. Had there been no buybacks, Nu would have 555.6 BTC more in its reserve. These reserve could last 6 weeks of unstopped btc rallying, starting May 21.

Selling NSR in a time, when NBT doesn’t look all great is hard enough.
Selling NSR in a time, when NBT doesn’t look all great, because of a BTC bull run is even worse; people just don’t want to trade their BTC for NSR - for two reasons…

The only real NSR demand we’ve seen for as long as I’ve been a shareholder seem to have been the buybacks, which seem to have been used by desperate shareholders as a way out of Nu.

how many BTC will be used if we want to buy back all NBT at market?

the latest calculation showed out standing nbt at ~710k , about 1200 btc at current rate.

Really astonished that shareholders agreed to spend so many BTC to buyback. They are really deserved to today’s situation.

cutting the nose to spite the face. The shareholders acted in self interest only to destruct them later. What a lesson
