Nexus Dev
Welcome to Nexus Developer Documentation
A place where you will find all the information needed to build on Nexus

Welcome to Nexus

Nexus is a next-generation blockchain technology that is re-building the internet from the ground up.
This is a living document, work in progress and will be updated regularly after completion

Why Nexus?

Nexus is the most advanced, innovative and open protocol blockchain platform, with advanced contracts in the crypto space. The technology will accommodate all usecases which require blockchain and smart contracts on a decentralised network.
Nexus was mined into existence similar to Bitcoin, there was no ICO or premine which makes it a safe bet against any regulatory crackdown.
The development of Nexus is still ongoing and we have a extensive roadmap
Smart contracts on Nexus are known as Advanced Contracts


The genesis block of Nexus was mined on September 23rd of 2014 at 16:20:00 GMT – 7.
Nexus has a max supply of 78,000,000 NXS, which will be mined by September, 2024 and after that there will be tail end emission of 3.67% max. Mining will emit 0.67% and staking will emit 3% if all the NXS are staked.

Nexus throughput on Tritium is 655 TPS, and each Tx can hold upto a max 100 contracts. 655*100=65500 contracts per second theoretical max.
Tritium++ throughput has seen a lot of improvements and will be updated with Tritium++ launch
