I only know about Nubits and they "print" more nubits out of thin air(this is very bad imo) in order to pay the liquidity providers with the 8% Coihoarder mentioned above, it seems to work until now but there is another problem with them, every time new suckers buy nubits, a large percentage of the suckers money are considered "Profits" and are used to pump their nushares  ponzishares. IF there is going to be a huge supply of nubits that threatens the peg, then and only then they will inflate their ponzishares supply (because every week they use lots of the sucker's BTC's as "profits"), despite all that it seems that they have a very good peg so far. If it works with them why not for us? 

Worst case scenario we will have to abord if we see that it does't  work, I think we will loose more time and energy than bts

I'm completly biased against nubits.

You are being hypocritical. Bitshares also prints BTS out of thin air for worker proposals and delegate dilution...

I also do not agree that Nubits is operating on a fractional reserve. Nubits are backed by the value of Nushares, as that is what is diluted to pay for liquidity and a tight peg. The Nushares market capitalization is above 2.6 million and the Nubits market capitalization is approx 750k. As long as Nushares has sufficient value to provide incentive to liquidity providers, and there is reason to believe there will be demand for Nubits at some point in the future, then I think it is unlikely it will ever collapse.

If the NuShare market cap is 8 million NBT and there are 1 million NBT in circulation, the asset to liability ratio is 8, not counting any reserves that exist. This is a highly solvent state that doesn’t resemble anything like fractional reserve.

Unfortunately for them there's a grand total of 15 BTC of buy support for NuShares across all exchanges? Yay, $750 000 of Nubits are backed by $6000 of NuShares buy support.

https://poloniex.com/exchange#btc_nsr
https://bter.com/trade/nsr_btc

Which is literally nothing and that tiny buy support would evaporate if NuShares was having to dump to support NuBits.

I think they have a few levels of reserves and I think they can still offer interest on parked Nubits before they get to that stage.

I don't think market capitalization or value should be determined primarily by the amount of buy orders, but more as to the current price. There has been $6500 in volume on the NSR markets today, and there are a lot of holders in the NSR community. I am biased though.. I have been investing in NSR.

The post up-thread explaining all of the competitors to bitUSD, including their market capitalization and volume, sum up my thoughts on the matter perfectly. Bitshares should be neck and neck with its competitors considering it was the first to market. Bitshares was my original pick to be the market leader, but the lack of success has lead me to having to diversify my holdings for this crypto market (stable asset and DEX). It is time to take the bull by the horns and swallow our pride, as to the hatred for Nubits and their solution, and get this problem solved.

People around here seem to hate Nubits because they print money, and then look the other way when it comes to BTS printing money (dilution).

Yes, but I'd guess 99%+ of all coins dilute in the same manner BitShares does.  BitShares does not dilute however to maintain their peg. There really is a large distinction although it may be meaningless to many users.

Also demand for Nubits explodes when BTC is falling, which is expected so I don't think their volume is fake.
In this way they'll likely loss money..
When BTC is falling, people want to sell BTC for NB, so Nu's bots will have to buy (BTC) high.
When BTC is raising, people want to sell NB for BTC, so Nu's bots will have to sell (BTC) low.
I guess there is something missing?

Yes. It's possible they raise the premium at these times but I think they still lose money during these extremes.
I think they subsidize the liquidity providers.

I think it works because they are constantly selling NBT and receiving BTC but not all the NBT they sell are coming back.
People might lose/forget or keep their NBT for a long time.

I think they are operating on a extreme fractional reserve and if a lot of people all wanted to sell their NBT at the same time they would have a problem because they've used the proceeds of previous sales to pay dividends, fund development, marketing and pay liquidity providers. (Their argument is that they have some liquidity tiers, they can use parking and finally dilute NuShares holders if necessary but NuShares is so illiquid, I don't think this is realistic.)

However they've survived so far without even needing to use parking rates I think, so maybe they can keep it going for quite a while.

You are comparing aplles to oranges. Nubits have no max cap in their printing presses and they also make the claim that their "token" will not devalue.

I also do not agree that Nubits is operating on a fractional reserve. Nubits are backed by the value of Nushares, as that is what is diluted to pay for liquidity and a tight peg. The Nushares market capitalization is above 2.6 million and the Nubits market capitalization is approx 750k. As long as Nushares has sufficient value to provide incentive to liquidity providers, and there is reason to believe there will be demand for Nubits at some point in the future, then I think it is unlikely it will ever collapse.

What is really the "value" of something that has only 15 btc 8,65 btc 9,39 btc buy support and half of its trading volume are pumping money from their ponzi "revenue" scheme?
 
The last 3 months they had a total volume of 540 btc in BTER and 378 btc in Poloniex for a total of 918 btc, but 458 btc of that volume is their ponzi "revenue" money used to pump the prize https://discuss.nubits.com/t/nsr-buyback-19-week-of-february-1-2016/3462

Add to the picture the huge spread and the fact that only 0.25% of the nushares are in the exchanges for sale and you get the whole picture.

There is no demand for NuShares, there is only demand for a peged crypto, good luck to you if you try to defend the peg by giving away.... Nushares

Hard forks happen all the time around here. You are kidding yourself if you think Bitshares has a hard cap on its printing press. The rules in Bitshares are final until they are changed. Bitshares... its marketing, and its users, claim SmartCoins are safe investments without hardly mentioning the risks involved. "Safer" than Nubits while sweeping the vulnerabilities and flaws under the rug left and right. Smartcoins are "backed" by a cryptocurrency that was printed out of thin air.... HELLO... A cryptocurrency that has lost value for almost 2 years straight with no signs of giving up. There is no way SmartCoins will ever become valueless, right?

You guys will keep diluting for useless features, because there are a bunch of idiots in control, and refuse to dilute for the things that are actually important. Important things like.... gasp.... liquidity on a cryptocurrency exchange. You guys wouldn't dilute for privacy, yet you are about to dilute to change flat fees to percentage based fees. As if that is going to be Bitshares' savior from this two year downtrend. No, it is the referral systems fault... we obviously need to tweak it. All of you "solutions" involving liquidity that don't involve dilution will not work, yet you guys are too thick to realize it. At the end of the day I  have little at stake here and have little to zero faith in the people that seem to be in control around here. So, I will peacefully bow out of here, sell my stake, and move on to another project. I suggest you guys get off this sinking ship while you still can. Sayonara

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

It is a bit absurd you are so hurt because a couple of guys disagree with you that dilution and the backing of smart assets have tiers in what is preferred.  BitShares has a hugely preferable method to what NuBits/NuShares is ... if only they can get liquidity. Which is the point of this thread.

edit - Thinking about this a bit further, there is a difference between diluting directly for the market's needs and diluting to pay other parties some sort of bonus system to incentivize them to be market makers. I always thought NuBits/Nushares had the first, but I suppose the 2nd is acceptable to me personally.

 Nubits/Nushares always seemed a bit odd to me .. They get away from transparency but use crypto as a ledger. I have used Nubits before, but I never kept my USD in there long. Mainly just trying to avoid big BTC drops. It worked well and was available on the exchanges. Last time I checked to get out of BTC, it had a 10%ish spread when BTC was swinging down. I passed...
