The word Nexus comes from Latin, and it means a connected group or series. Nexus is a peer-to-peer network, designed to improve the speed, scalability, and security upon the blockchain protocols. This is made possible because of a quantum resistant 3D blockchain technology and communication satellites in space. These are the three core principals of the Nexus platform:- Efficient and scalable code- Improved security- Advanced hardwareAll of this is possible because of the three-dimensional blockchain Nexus has. The first two channels are Proof-of-work but in the first miners search for 308-digit dense prime clusters. The second channel uses hashcash and miners search for SHA-3 hashes. For top groups, you need a CPU, and for hashes a GPU. The last channel uses Proof-of-Holdings to strengthen the network. The developer of Nexus is Colin Cantrell, and when he initially founded Nexus in 2014, it was named Coinshied. There is no maximum amount of NXS coins in circulation but a 10-year distribution period with 78 million NXS until 2024.
