ok folks help me understand this.

So I clicked the link

https://neverdie.com/wallet.html

I don't understand all these buttons.

Say I decide to buy $20 worth of Neverdie coins and just sit-on-them for now.
I assume that if his currency gets used the price increases right? because there's a limited amount of coins.

have I understood that right?

So what buttons do I need to select (see the link), to buy $20 worth?

I also don't understand the avatar in there, the purpose of it, and how it works.

Thanks for help

Rick

Think I'm gradually understanding it.

So I need to buy ETH (Ether) to be able to buy NDC.

1 ETH = $201.28

but I can buy decimal points of it.

So 0.02 ETH = 16.10 NDC.

Why is ETH valued at that price?
Who owns the Ether?

Or is it better to own the Ether?

I've noticed that if I own some NDC, I can then buy into a fund "Rock Dollars"
Of which there're currently 499039 / 500000 available.

So that raises another question. Is the purpose of buying the NDC to then buy the Rock Dollars, which can rise and fall in value once all the 500K have been bought?

Does that mean the Rock Dollars are like in a sense CLD for Rocktropia?

Rock Dollars



Buying Rock Dollars with NDC




Cheers

I can answer a few bits from your first post.
Currently $1 equals to 4 NDC. After 1st of August, price could go up, price could go down, who knows.
Alternatively, you can change your NDC into Rockdollars. 4 NDC = 1 Rockdollar which is pretty much $1.
The Rockdollar is a Rocktropia Deed and (if not mistaken) dividends will start paying in after 1st of August on weekly basis. Of course its value could go up or down as well :) . You ll find a few more details and understanding of how it works on the "Funds" button at the left of the page. Interestingly enough, there are some sub-funds, check the drop down menu "All data" at the right side. There are different mobs sub-funds, each seem to (or potentially could) pay different dividends. That is an additional bonus to the shrewd investor!

It would appear that if you buy NDC you get bonus virtual gold and silver for another game ND is trying to crowdfund as well.

https://neverdie.io/index.html

But I also read you need to register for this first to qualify, but I've now lost that link.

I'm not doing anything, until I understand all the rules.

But it would appear you buy NDC (to qualify for free holding in a new game), and get to swap the NDC for Rock dollars, which you say behaves like deeds for RT.

Thanks

Rick

I think etherum just recently crashed to 10 us cents recently and came back up again, all within a few minutes?
Too scary.....think I'll stick with Compet :)

edit:

Yeah the ETH prices appear very volatile.

It was 1 ETH = $201.28 (when I looked earlier)

Within an hour or less it's now: 1 ETH = $193.23 (as pic)




Personally converting real dollars into this ether currency seems just crazy to me.
If you're hanging onto bitcoins you can't get rid of, it might be worthwhile swapping (who knows).

However it was worthwhile looking into it, and trying to understand it.

I do most of my crypto trading at poloniex.com.

For those of you that haven't been into it at all you can see some (just a portion) of the cryptocurrencies listed there, some of their values, and watch the markets work very similar to a FOREX.

This includes a bit of price history. I've been dabbling in crypto for a long time, and if you want to get a sense of where the market is at right now you can look back to the first quarter of this year when many coins took a 200 to 2500 percent rise and have slowly been settling back down. It's a high risk time to be buying in.

I can't (or wouldn't) directly endorse any exchange or platform. As I mentioned, most of my stuff is at poloniex, I also trade a little bit at bittrex.com, another american exchange. For a larger list of platforms and trading services available you can see https://exchangewar.info/

It appears that most of the coins on NDs site are Ethereum tokens which anyone can make and propagate onto the ETH network. It remains to be seen whether he can provide any actual value to them, I guess.

EDIT: there's no such thing as bitcoins you "can't get rid of" they're fluctuating between 2200 and 2500 dollars each lately :eyecrazy:

Yeah, you may be onto something there actually... but yea, who knows.

Reminds me the classics! :)
Lieutenant Dan got me invested in some kind of fruit company. So then I got a call from him, saying we don't have to worry about money no more. And I said, that's good! One less thing.

Is there a way to buy this junk in game or on on webshop type thing? Suspecting that there is, and it's all related to that new ai mission, but not sure on the details of it all.

(wouldn't mind investing but my bank won't let this type of activity happen... Same shit with Entropia, which is why I have to use paypal as a third party layer most of the time.)

Mindark, if you are reading this, it'd be nice if there was a webshop or in game interface that let you exchange universal ammo for this type of stuff...

In ancient days there was an in game stock exchange... so the interface, etc. is already half way coded, or was at one point in time.

It is advised that you consult a tax professional to fully understand any potential tax implications of receiving investor perks before making an investment.
Sounds like it might be better from investment standpoint as far as the perks go to go with the Lord British side, and then portal over to RT down the road, etc. Still now sure how these games will interconnect, but suspect that it'll all fall together in 10-15 years.

My guess is the Lord British is the English side similar to Eudoria on Entropia and the Amethera/other continent side will be the AmVRca thing?

Okay, now that August 1st has come and gone... Can anybody confirm whether or not the Rock Dollars paid out? What happened here?

Right now NDC only purpose is to pay me and other government official's of RT our monthly wages
Soon it will be useable in some other games and possibly entropia but til then it's only current official use is to pay our wages.

lol nah, like all cryptos it will only ever be purchased by buy and hold speculative investors. No one actually "uses" crypto (other than criminals) lol even the staff being paid in it now, their primary thought when getting it is "ok how do I convert this into something useful like real money?" Lol
