About Nano (XNO)

Nano (previous RaiBlocks) is a peer-to-peer payment system blockchain that was launched in 2014 by Colin LeMahieu. The project was initially known as RaiBlocks, and its native token was known as XRB. However, in 2018, it was rebranded as Nano, and in 2021, its native token was renamed Nano (XNO) token.

Nano was created in order to create a blockchain that allows for quick transactions at no cost to its users. Transactions on the Nano blockchain are completed in a fraction of a second and at no cost to the user. This is in contrast to most other blockchains, where transactions can take several minutes to complete and users must pay transaction fees to carry out transactions. Furthermore, Nano is built with a different ledger technology known as Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG). This enables very high transactional throughput, in the 1,000 transactions per second range.

The XNO token is the Nano blockchain's native token, and it is used for a variety of purposes, including microtransactions, banking infrastructure, online and in-store payments, remittances, foreign exchange, and trading. One of the most important applications of the XNO coin is in the selection of its network validators, known as representatives.

Nano has forged several partnerships that have helped it strengthen its market position. Some noteworthy entities that constitute the Nano ecosystem include CryptoUK, University of East London, Alternative Airlines, Ledger, Atomic Wallet, Exodus, Guarda, Coinify, Simplex, CS:GO, Raiblocks MC, Quake III, SOS Kinderdorf, and Crypto for the Homeless.

How does Nano work?

Nano was created to facilitate global payments with no transaction costs and instant finalization. Bitcoin was launched in 2009 as the first successful digital currency offering an alternative to traditional fiat currencies. However, Bitcoin had problems and Nano was developed partly to try and fix those problems.

The first problem was that Bitcoin could not scale easily because every node on the blockchain had to have a complete copy of the blockchain stored and updated for each transaction. The process of maintaining the blockchain became difficult as the network grew. Bitcoin also had latency problems, and transactions took a long time to confirm because of the proof-of-work consensus (PoW) model. The PoW consensus model is also very energy-intensive, requiring large amounts of processing power.

To solve these problems, Nano was launched running a version of the proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus model known as delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS). In addition, the Nano blockchain runs a unique version of DPoS known as the Open Representative Voting system. In this consensus system, holders of the XNO token vote for representatives who act as validators, confirm transactions, and secure and update the blockchain.

The Open Representative Voting consensus system is much less energy intensive than the PoW consensus mechanism and poses no threat to the environment. According to data from payments solutions provider Wirex, 15 million transactions on the Nano blockchain require less energy than a single transaction on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Nano also runs on a blockchain with what is known as a block-lattice approach to generating blocks. Using this model, each user on the Nano blockchain has their own personal blockchain linked to their account. When a transaction is carried out between two users, both their blockchains are updated to show the transaction that has taken place. Using this approach, transactions can be finalized instantly. This is because, unlike most other blockchains, Nano does not have to validate all the transactions carried out at a specific time before updating the blockchain. The individual blockchains connected to each account are updated and transactions are immediately finalized. To keep the blockchain coherent, the representatives vote on the validity of transactions by confirming that the total amount of all XNO tokens in the accounts on the blockchain is equal to the amount of the total amount of XNO tokens in circulation.

XNO price and tokenomics

On Nano's initial founding as RaiBlocks, there was an initial maximum supply of 340 million XRB and tokens were released to the public via a mechanism known as a crypto faucet. A total of 126,248,289 XRB tokens were released to the public through the faucet. That, combined with the 7 million XNO tokens in the Nano developer fund, brings the total amount of XNO tokens in circulation to 133,248,290 XNO. Post the faucet's closure, the Nano team sent 207,034,069 Nano coins to an unrecoverable burn address.

When Nano was first launched as RaiBlocks, there was a 340 million XRB initial maximum supply, and tokens were distributed to the general public using a mechanism called a crypto faucet. Through the faucet, a total of 126,248,289 XRB tokens were made available to users. That, combined with the 7 million XNO tokens in the Nano developer fund, brings the total amount of XNO tokens in circulation to 133,248,290 XNO. After the faucet was shut down, the Nano team sent 207,034,069 tokens to a burn address.

On January 2, 2018, XNO reached an all-time high of $33.69. This was also the time when the project's name was changed from RaiBlocks to Nano.

XNO does not have a mining or creation process because the people who run nodes on the network are not rewarded for keeping the network running. XNO has been fully diluted, and the entire supply of XNO tokens is now in circulation. There will be no new XNO tokens created in the future.

About the founders

Nano was founded in October 2015 by Colin LeMahieu, an accomplished software engineer and developer who has previously worked with tech giants like Qualcomm, AMD, and Dell. LeMahieu is also the founder of Nano Foundation, a non-profit organization that oversees the Nano projects. Alongside LeMahieu, Nano Foundation is headed by foundation director George Coxon and general counsel Maulin Shah.

Nano was first launched as RaiBlocks in 2014 with the release of the XRB tokens. The XRB tokens were released to the public via a captcha challenge which anyone could enter and complete captcha challenges to earn XRB tokens. The method of distribution was chosen to ensure a fair distribution of the token, as anyone could get as many tokens as they were willing to put in the work.

The project was rebranded to Nano in January 2018 to reflect its lightweight design and one of its use cases — microtransactions. In November 2021, Nano coin's ticker was also changed from NANO to XNO. This was done to comply with the globally recognized ISO (International Organization for Standardization) requirements.

Nano highlights

1. XNO payments in India

As the global adoption of Nano as a payment system and XNO as a global currency continues, Nano has taken a big step forward in India. A restaurant in Kolkata, India, the Vyanjan restaurant, has started accepting XNO payments for purchasing goods. In a blog post detailing the reason for choosing XNO above other cryptocurrencies, the restaurant said Nano's design made it especially suited for day-to-day payments of small amounts, like buying groceries and food.

2. Coin Cloud ATM integration

Leading cryptocurrency ATM services provider Coin Cloud has announced that it is adding XNO to the list of cryptocurrencies supported by the company. Coin Cloud has 6,000 cryptocurrency ATMs in locations worldwide, and now XNO token transactions can be carried out on those ATMs.

Nano FAQ

What is XNO?
The XNO token is the native token of the Nano blockchain. It is used as a currency, a means of exchange and payments, and a store of value on the Nano blockchain. Nano is also working towards making XNO a global, legally recognized currency.
Is Nano a secure blockchain?
Nano's Open Representative System consensus mechanism places the power over the blockchain in a handful of representatives who maintain consensus over transactions on the blockchain. This leaves the blockchain open to dangers like a Sybil attack that come with the centralization of a blockchain. To protect against some of these dangers, Nano assigns each representative voting power proportional to how many XNO tokens the people who voted for that representative own in their Nano wallets. In this way, the balance of power is constantly shifting and no one person can easily take control of the blockchain.
Which all factors contribute to XNO price movements?
XNO's price is impacted by multiple factors, including regulatory changes, adoption-related developments, project upgrades, market conditions, commercial partnerships, and more.
