What is Nxt?

Nxt is an open source blockchain platform and one of the first to rely on a proof-of-stake consensus protocol.
Launched in November 2013 and written from scratch in Java, Nxt is proof that blockchain technology is not only about simple transfer of value but also has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of our lives with the various decentralized applications that can be built with it. Today, Nxt remains one of the most tested platforms in the industry, influencing numerous other projects. With its many easy to use modular built-in features, Nxt covers most of the dApp use cases and at the same time is perfectly suitable for private blockchain implementations.

Where did Nxt come from?

Nxt is an iconic project in the history of blockchain development. Launched in November 2013, it represents one of the first proof of stake blockchains. Started by an anonymous developer who disappeared shortly thereafter, with a crowdsale that raised only a symbolic amount, the Nxt project formed a wonderful community around it, and gave birth to many successful follow-up projects, including own Ardor platform.

What are the advantages of Nxt?

  • NXT has simple but flexible architecture that makes blockchain adoption easy, and can be extended to fit any public or private use case.
  • Nxt claims that it was the first blockchain to launch a user-friendly and yet fully decentralized asset exchange. Anyone can issue and trade tokens on top of Nxt, and orders are matched and executed directly on the blockchain itself.
  • The Nxt blockchain has been in production for more than 6 years. The Nxt team claims that for this period there were virtually no downtime, no major bugs, and no successful exploits. Millions of Nxt transactions have been conducted, establishing its reputation of the secure platform in the blockchain industry.

What are the disadvantages of Nxt?

  • Some people find low marketing of the project as its disadvantage. Nxt started in 2013 coin but couldn’t get immediately a lot of traction because of lack of sufficient funding and some big ICOs that followed.
  • Although many crypto projects have their roots in Nxt some managed to become more successful.
  • Nxt is very well developed but considered by some users too complicated due to wallet exposing all features.
