Wouldn't it be tough to copy NuBits, seeing as no one outside the project knows what it is? Reminds me a little of when the inventor Dean Kamen was working on something HUGE that was going to change urban transport forever. Everyone was calling the project "IT". Steve Jobs and all these notables had visited him and were hyping his work. "It" was the next big thing, but very hush hush. Speculation was rampant. Would it be a Stirling engine breakthrough? And when the Segway debuted, people were juuuust a little bit underwhelmed. Cool, but definitely a niche product. Hopefully, NuBits adds a useful piece to the crypto universe; I'm rooting for them, even though I sold all my PPC for BitShares.
