About Nano

Nano was launched in 2015 and was then called RailBlocks. The creator of the cryptocurrency, Colin Lemahieu, tried to develop a fast, free and scalable network with Nano. To achieve this, Nano looks very different under the hood than, for example, bitcoin (BTC).

For example, everyone who uses Nano has its own blockchain instead of a single blockchain in which all transactions are stored, as is the case with bitcoin. Nano's architecture maintains the balance sheets of the wallets, where traditional blockchains track every transaction and their values. This means that, among other things, less free storage space is required to use Nano.

This revolutionary approach leads to a processing time of transactions of just 1 to 10 seconds. In addition, no transaction costs are charged. The result is a cryptocurrency that is fast, scalable and free! Moreover, Nano is much more efficient because there is no mining needed. Miners ensure the security of the data within the Bitcoin network, a disadvantage is that it takes a lot of power. Nano's unique approach eliminates the need for miners.

Important tips when buying/selling Nano


If you want to buy Nano, there are a number of things that are important to keep in mind. For example, it is important that you have a good Nano wallet. In case you buy Nano through an exchange it is advisable to send your Nano to your own wallet.

Do you want to buy Nano through an OTC platform? Then investigate the company that offers the Nano. Unfortunately, scams are common in the cryptocurrency world. So look for reviews from other users, ask about experiences of friends with the company and use your common sense. Does a website look cheap or bad? Then you need to be extra careful. Important: Never give your private key to anyone!

Wallets come in different shapes and sizes. There are online wallets, these are wallets that can only be used with an internet connection and browser. This type of wallet is considered to be the most unsafe. You can also use software wallets, this is software that you install on your PC or laptop. In this case, you basically save your Nano on your hard drive. The safest option, however, is a hardware wallet, which is a sort of USB stick on which you can store your Nano. These wallets are not connected to the internet and therefore offer the most security.
