Many people are attracted to the crypto industry due to the continuous realization of new uses of blockchain technology. Since the inception of Bitcoin, we have seen multiple trends play out — P2P scalable digital currencies, privacy coins, decentralized funding (ICOs), decentralized finance (DeFi) and over the past few months, there has been a resounding interest in Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). Whereas Bitcoin, Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens are equally interchangeable (fungible), NFTs have specific attributes that make them unique assets on the blockchain. …


We are pleased to announce that PotCoin (Ᵽ) is migrating over from their legacy blockchain to Nexus (NXS). PotCoin has made Nexus their platform of choice, with the confidence that together we will best serve the growing cannabis industry. The recreational and medical cannabis market in North America already accounts for roughly $17.7 billion in 2021 and is forecast to reach 47.3 billion by 2027 [1], an estimated 44% annual increase. As cannabis continues to be decriminalized and legalized around the world, the potential for economic growth is exponential. …


As we close out Q4 of 2020, we look back on this year of global disruption with open hearts, conscious minds, and humble confidence as we continue our journey to a decentralized future. The development team established ambitious goals when Tritium ++ was originally defined and the majority of necessary features are nearing finality. Though our focus shifted slightly based on revived opportunities and unforeseen variables, our team and our community have much to look forward to, including some special surprises along the way.

Tritium ++ releases are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021, but before we…


Nexus is building a new internet driven by a blockchain-based operating system (LX-OS) and communications protocol (Nexus Protocol), that will be connected by distributed satellite constellations and mesh networks.

Underpinning the foundation is the Nexus Tritium, Amine and Obsidian (TAO) Framework, a seven layer software stack that enables the simplified implementation of smart contracts, Decentralized Applications (DApps), tokens, and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT’s, i.e. Assets) through a set of extensible Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This platform has been completely developed from the ground up, designed with sustainability in mind, featuring on-chain scalability to accelerate global expansion and long-term adoption.


Mike Davies is Managing Director at Biodiversity Ecosystem Futures (BEF), a UK-based start-up targeting environmental assets trading and registration. In this Ask Me Anything (AMA) Mike presents some of the reasons for choosing Nexus as their technology partner, focusing on scalability and ease of use facilitated through the intuitive API as well as Signature Chains.

Nexus.io releases an architectural blueprint for the building of a decentralized and uncensorable internet

On December 21st, 2020, the Nexus Protocol white paper was released. The new internet will be driven by a blockchain-based operating system (LX-OS) and communications protocol (Nexus Protocol), that will be connected by a distributed satellite-based mesh network. The white paper contains technical specifications and mathematical models that showcase and prove the viability, value proposition, and practicality of this novel architectural framework.

Network Architecture

Web 3.0 or Decentralized Web (DWeb), has been coined as the next evolution of the internet, with the promise of emancipating digital communication by reducing our reliance on a select few companies and technologies, to ultimately…


When Bitcoin burst onto the scene in 2009, many early adopters realized that cryptocurrency could change the world. These pioneers were the first of many yet cryptocurrency remained elusive for everyday people, a technological marvel that required adept technical skills to use. Over a decade later and through another marvel of technology, the key to user adoption and the future of cryptocurrency lies in the palm of our hands: the smartphone.

Currently, Nexus is developing a mobile wallet which allows users the ability to manage coins, tokens and assets from their smartphone and will eventually, combined with the three-dimensional chain…


In the first article of this series, we highlighted the history, industries and major use cases involved in the NexOS evolution. This article will explore the crucial factors and fundamental intricacies of the technical foundation and frameworks bringing this innovation to fruition.

Instead of relying on generic technology ill-suited for blockchain’s specific characteristics, Nexus manages to interoperate with the current internet infrastructure while offering the seed of an alternative future.

The Nexus Operating System (NexOS) and Protocol (NP) each rely on several key components thoughtfully interwoven to work in harmony. The Lower Level Library (LLL) represents a major part of…


Understanding the inspiration and history behind Nexus helps convey the current vision. This is the first of three articles covering pertinent aspects of Nexus’ history in which the context is set for the burgeoning NexOS (Nexus Operating System), and its innovative security principles are introduced.

Excessive ambition stands as a valid criticism of Nexus’s technical designs and goals. Nevertheless, that energy provides the necessary impetus to pursue an alternative future. Refusing to follow the trendy designs of Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs), Nexus paved its own path, every passing day affirming these decisions instead of rebuking them. Specifically, the attention to…


Signature Chains (Sigchains) provide a unique access mechanism in the crypto ecosystem. SigChains present a naitive quantum-resistant login system abstracted from the traditional public-private key setup, redefining key management. To access Nexus, anyone can log in from any computer in the world using their username, password and PIN. A recovery phase allows emergency access in case they forget or lose the username, password or PIN. By abstracting key management to a traditional experience, Nexus initiates features that set a basis for decentralized digital identity and sophisticated organizational management, while increasing its general usability.

SigChains are a sequence of transactions that…
