Nash is pleased to open applications for listing tokens on our exchange. We are keen to support promising projects and to grow the digital asset ecosystem.

A Listings page has been added to our website where project leaders are able to submit their applications.

Nash does not make profits by charging token listing fees. If we choose to list a project, at present we charge a one-off fee of ca. 10,000 USD to cover legal costs. …

Unlike centralized exchanges, Nash gives users direct control of their funds. We want customers around the world to have the chance to buy and sell digital assets with national currencies — and hold them in their own wallets!

Nash is hence collaborating with national currency partners in various jurisdictions to establish these “fiat ramps”. We are already working with partners in the United States of America, European Union and Brazil, but are keen to expand to new regions and grow our network in the areas we already serve, providing a greater choice of currency pairs and types of digital asset.

As a project originating within the blockchain community, we want to empower other businesses to connect with our user base and share in the success that delivering a new, decentralized financial system can bring. …

The Nash referral program is extended

The Nash referral program giveaway will now end at 18:00 UTC on 26 December 2019.

We are extending the program deadline to bring it back in line with our original marketing plans for launch.

When we announced the referral program in February, our internal planning was based on the Nash Exchange being operational some time in advance of the program’s end. Although Nash is not yet operational, our team is currently working hard to polish the MVP for launch. Our internal roadmap and the objectives we communicated in our Q1 2019 Quarterly Report have not changed. …

The year started at full speed for Nash. We hit several milestones, culminating in our April beta program. During the first quarter, we worked on multiple iterations of our interface, employing user testing to optimize the launch of our non-custodial funds management and trading platforms. At the same time, we greatly refined the specification for our payments solution and our Marketing and Communications division began to build a support team. Nash continues to make great progress on legal fronts and our compliance efforts are yielding positive results. …

Beta testing: Schedule for perfecting our product

Nash will begin our Community beta testing program today, as we announced at NEO DevCon in February.

Beta testing is a crucial element of software development that is sorely overlooked within the blockchain space. Not only is beta testing essential for finding bugs, but it is also a key aspect of user-centered design. By allowing our community to test Nash, we will both catch outlying software glitches and gain valuable feedback on the first-hand experience of using our platform. This will enable our designers to further refine our interface, giving the intuitive, seamless experience that blockchain requires if it is to see mass adoption. …

Cryptocurrency trading: The good, the bad and the ugly

The problem digital currencies solve

Everyone talks about “sending” files over the Internet. We send messages, photos and documents every day. But when we send things electronically, it’s not like we’re sending them through the mail. Send data over the Internet and you are really making copies of that data.

When you share a photo in WhatsApp or WeChat, you create a copy of the file that exists on your phone. This copy travels to their servers and on to its destination. But the original file is still with you when the copy arrives. …

The heart of Nash is our matching engine, which we described in this article as a multi-chain state channel manager. The matching engine provides speed by processing trades off the blockchain, but it will never update a user’s balances unless they have signed orders.

Of course, the matching engine must also interact with the blockchains supported by Nash. This is where our Blockchain Integrations team comes in: smart contracts store user funds for trading and can interact with both the matching engine and users’ personal wallets.

Manual withdrawal from our contracts is possible at all times, even if the Nash platform and matching engine are unavailable. Users have the option of interacting directly with our smart contracts to withdraw funds. Nash can potentially block trades on the matching engine, but since we do not have users’ private keys, we cannot issue trades or interact with smart contracts on their behalf. Furthermore, the matching engine cannot be exploited to steal user funds from our smart contracts. Even if the matching engine were somehow compromised, user balances would remain untouched. …

Our goal at Nash is to bring decentralization to everyone. Since blockchains are too slow to implement high-performance exchanges, users turn to centralized solutions for trading. If decentralized technology is to be truly widespread, we must overcome these bottlenecks. Genuinely decentralized systems have to compete in terms of performance.

This is exactly what our off-chain matching engine achieves. By matching trades off the blockchain, we bypass its speed restrictions. We can also match trades across multiple chains, like a centralized exchange. However, with Nash, users never give up control of their funds. …
