Earlier in the year, I had a conversation with my father-in-law, Greg, about the merits of Bitcoin and the investment possibility. At the time Bitcoin was trading around $70. The push over $1000 and resulting media attention was the push into the world of Bitcoin for him. An astute handicapper, he asked me for a way to follow the price of Bitcoin. Like anyone knowledgeable about the space, Coin Marketcap serves the purpose very well.
A few nights ago, Greg pointed out to me another coin- Nextcoin (NXT). He asked me if I knew anything about the coin. We have established a position on his call. I have spent a couple of days studying Nextcoin as an investment. Yesterday, the price really started to head higher and today Nextcoin.org went down due to an influx of traffic.
I reached out to two people involved with Nextcoin about an interview, and each graciously declined because of how busy they are with Nextcoin. Adding all of these things together, it looks like the new guy has some skills.
