Private Blockchain Evaluation Kit
We expect this evaluation release to be useful for the following purposes:
1. Application developers who plan to eventually deploy their application to public Nxt blockchain.
2. Businesses evaluating the suitability of the Nxt platform for their own private blockchain use case.
3. Academic research and experimentation with proof of stake blockchain technology.
4. Users who want to learn how the Nxt blockchain works, without having to purchase NXT or ask for testnet coins.
Using the "Private Blockchain Evaluation Kit" solution, users will now be able to rapidly prototype, develop and test Nxt-based applications on a private, local testnet, without having to join the public testnet or the production blockchain.
This is an evaluation version for testing only. Source code is not provided.
This Private Blockchain Evaluation Kit is a testing and evaluation version
based on NRS release 1.11.4.
It contains the following modifications:
There are 10 hardcoded genesis recipient accounts with passwords "0" to "9"
and 100,000,000 NXT initial balance each.
The genesis account with a password of "Nxt" is allowed to send transactions
even though its balance is negative.
The software is configured to run as testnet only, ignoring the value of the
The peer networking port has been hardcoded to 5874.
All modifications specific to the current Nxt public blockchain have been

A lot of things have changed since the launch of Nxt in late 2013. One of those that stood out to me when I came back in mid-2016 after a 2-year hiatus was how less decentralized things were becoming, which has its pros and cons. I remember sending a tweet to what is now considered as the official Twitter account back in the early days and being told that there’s no such thing as an official account since Nxt was a decentralized platform. Just as BCNext thought, things can’t be completely decentralized, though whether Nxt found the level after which a society can’t function as a whole or not is arguable. In any case, some centralization has occurred, both with the Foundation or with Jelurida, the corporation created by the core development team. The creation of both has led to some mixed reactions. For some, it was enough to leave Nxt or solidify their interest in the platform. However, Nxt is still largely decentralized. The Nxt and, soon, Ardor blockchains can be used without permission from either of the two and will never need it. Network consensus is also untouched, which is another reason why the ARDR distribution was 1:1. On the extreme end, even if the Foundation and Jelurida were to disappear instantaneously, the code would still be available and the current version would still be running. Remaining users could create a Foundation of their own as well. It probably won’t be easy to do, but it would be possible.
As a lot of those in the community know, Nxt didn’t have the same start that other platforms have, with only 21 BTC raised in 2013, all of which were long gone by the time the Nxt Foundation or Jelurida came into existence. Also, a number of early projects were either voluntary or funded through bounties by the early members of the community. Aside from core development tasks, everything else was organized in a decentralized manner, whether it was creating tools for community members or creating committees to fill various necessary roles. This is still being done today, though to a lesser degree, due to the various initiatives and 3rd party projects on Nxt and those planned for Ardor. Even a large factor of the Foundation being able to fulfill its role within its first official year even came in the form of donations from community members through the Tennessee Fundraising project with nothing but work promised in return. In a lot of ways, the beginnings of Nxt, coupled with an anonymous and now non-existent founder, matches that with Bitcoin’s. While further funding options are being explored by both parties, whether they be internally or externally, it is clear that the reason why Nxt has lasted so long is because of the cooperation of the wider community behind it, not just the Foundation and not just the core developers. It will also continue to be the key for Nxt and Ardor to go into the future.
*Announcing Adel’s 1st Project for Incubation ▲ Crypto Financing Platform*
Adel is proud to announce the first official project for incubation, called the Crypto Financing Platform. This will be a Fintech project that will run on the Ethereum Blockchain, utilizing smart contracts. This project has been created by the Adel R&D team, and will be shortly released for idea incubation to the community. Here is an abstract:
Cryptocurrency platforms have recently seen an impressive growth both in value and in investment opportunities. This has expanded the community, attracting many new investors, entrepreneurs and developers, and has also encouraged people to hold cryptocurrency tokens for the long term. This project aims to offer a blockchain-based application that can provide liquidity to investors and returns for passive holders, in the form of cryptocurrency loans with other cryptocurrencies as collateral.
Dear myNXT wallet user,
Due to the wide usage of the official Nxt light client feature (https://nxtplatform.org/download) and the Jelurida public node (https://nxt.jelurida.com), the lack of manpower for development and support, and no clear path to profitability, myNXT has closed new user registrations and will phase out the MyNxt web wallet feature by the end of 2017.
