Nexus Developer Documentation
A place where you will find all the information needed to build on Nexus
Nexus is a next-generation blockchain technology that is re-building the internet from the ground up.
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 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 has created a very unique and innovative blockchain, a result of an in-depth R&D on the expectations of people from blockchain, and how to make it accessible to all people. Listed below are the key design innovations.
