What is Nexus?

Nexus (NXS) is a next-generation blockchain technology designed to create a more scalable and quantum-resistant internet. The platform aims to solve the bandwidth and scalability congestion present on the blockchain, enabling virtual access to the desktop and digital content from any computer in the world.

The Nexus Protocol, which uses a security-focused operating system called Lx-OS, creates decentralized and reputation-driven routing services at both hardware and software levels. This provides an alternative to Internet Service Providers (ISPs), enabling users to recover their digital identity through an end-to-end decentralized platform.

Nexus has designed the ONE (Open Nexus Execution) stack to improve security and openness on the internet. The ONE stack supports online services and verifies information sources through authenticated reputation. The Nexus architecture is built on a seven-layered software stack operating as a 64-bit register-based process virtual machine. Each layer of this architecture carries out a process independently, offering additional functionality to the existing Internet stack.

The native token of the Nexus platform is NXS, which can be staked inside the Nexus desktop wallet with staking enabled and a continuous internet connection. Staking provides an efficient form of mining to secure the Nexus blockchain. Users are rewarded with NXS at a stake rate of 0.5 percent to 3.0 percent per year on their staked holdings. Staking can be done at any amount, and to reach the maximum stake rewards rate, the user’s node must find a Proof of Stake block at least every 72 hours.

Nexus operates three channels to mint new NXS currency and produce valid blocks, including two Proof-of-Work channels and one Proof-of-Stake channel. Minting is the process in blockchain to validate information, create a new block and record this information into the blockchain.

The Tritium Trust introduced the Tritium protocol on the Nexus network, which improved the trust and Proof-of-Stake systems. The Tritium protocol introduced staking concepts created in previous staking systems, improved them, and added new concepts that enhanced performance and security for Proof-of-Stake.

Nexus aims to rebuild the internet from scratch, creating a more scalable and quantum-resistant blockchain with uncensorable and free internet. With its security-focused operating system, decentralized routing services, and innovative ONE stack, Nexus is at the forefront of the next-generation blockchain revolution.
