Supply, Reserves, and Equilibrium (superseded by automation)

Sure. If Nu sells tons of new nubits – say btc crashes and people want to buy NBT – then it will have tons of fund to buyback.

Ok. I have one more question.
Last week we didnt have buybacks because BTC value for buybacks was too low, so is this value adding into buyback this week?

Each week we buyback 10% of the overflow. If 10% of the overflow is not > $2500 we will not buy back. If we dont buy back then we still hold the money, so it will be used the next week if possible. However, no, previous buybacks (whether they happen or not) have no direct effect on future buybacks other than changing the number of btc in our reserve.

So that would mean no buybacks this week too??

always yes we not have much btc in hand

Sorry for the delayed response.

Address BT9AWq9r1i6kghZc6LtrvNb2wRFh7JLCdP was originally a custodial grant address mandated for both development expenses and tier 4 liquidity operations. Because funds to be spent on development should probably be considered NuBits in circulation, while funds for tier 4 liquidity operations should not be considered as NuBits in circulation, these funds are in a bit of a grey area as to how they should be regarded when calculating the number of NuBits in circulation. Excluding this address (BT9AWq9r1i6kghZc6LtrvNb2wRFh7JLCdP) and the 150,000 on B5Zi5XJ1sgS6mWGu7bWJqGVnuXwiMXi7qj, I have 18,390 additional shareholder NBT that are reserved to pay for NuBit development expenses. Because these 18,390 NBT are likely to be spent on development in about 60 days, I am inclined to consider those as in circulation. The ~44,000 in BT9AWq9r1i6kghZc6LtrvNb2wRFh7JLCdP will not be spent on development during March or April and is a paired NuLagoon Tube address actively used for liquidity operations. Therefore, it is probably appropriate to regard these funds as not in circulation.

In summary, I am inclined to add address BT9AWq9r1i6kghZc6LtrvNb2wRFh7JLCdP to the list of addresses with balances that are out of circulation.

Thanks for the explanation. I agree with your view above and will modify the buyback calculation script.

Due to this liquidity operation, the number of shareholder BTC I have is 138.0.

so we will set buyback order next week?
that is a good news for NSR market.


Is there exact time when weekly buyback price counting progress into new day? Im asking this because I see price change sometimes right after midnight and sometimes in the early morning. In my opinnion this is not good

If the point of time were exactly known, it could be used to game the system.

It also could be much easier for people who are in contact with buyback manager to game the sistem, so they are ahead of everybody else.

Do you doubt the integrity of our buyback manager?
If so, you should think one step further - the buyback manager himself is in the perfect position to game the system.
But know what? Most (should I say: (almost) all) community members trust @Nagalim, because of all he did and does and the way he did and does that.

If you mistrust him, I recommend supporting auctions that can trade BTC for NSR and vice versa, because the transactions there happen on blockchain.

A concept for that has once been created to auction NBT for NSR:

I dont have problem with @Nagalim, i really appreciate everything what he is doing. I was just asking if there is time pattern for progressing days or it is just buyback managers will.

I must say it is really hard to be awake whole night waiting for buyback progress :smile:

So put your orders up earlier :wink:

This is the correct answer. I use a die roll to determine when to move the wall. If i wanted to game the system i would mess with the buyback price more than the time i put it up at.

The order book needs orders. Put your orders up and let the market do its thing. I too have been up late nights watching markets like ppc/usd and the best advice ive ever found is just put your bets in and lay your weary head to rest, let the world keep turning.

I do try to do the move between 12a and 12p UTC. I use the full day’s trades (recent weighted more) to get a price so if you put a sell an appropriate amount below the general market price on tuesday or wednesday night you are likely to get it.

Now that we are operating on only one exchange, maybe it would be good to do every move at the same time each day. My issue with that is that my schedule doesnt really allow the buybacks to be a top priority for me. I’d love someone to propose a motion or a software…


Can the parametric nubot be configured to sell NSR with a huge spread of 90% - 70% of the volume weighted average price in the last 24hr?

As far as i know theres no nsr wrapper.

The price feed is another issue.
