Payments are the major goal of Nano

Just like Bitcoin or Litecoin, Nano was meant to work with P2P payments. It deals with many of the same problems that the former two coins oppose.

Basically, Nano consists of as many blockchains as there are nodes. That is done through a block-lattice architecture to ensure that the initial Nano network can increase its scalability as much as necessary. In theory, this can solve the trouble that Bitcoin is facing right now.

Just as a reminder, Nano cannot be mined. The coins were spread around through faucets by means of CAPTCHA tests. Now there are 133,248,289 tokens circulating out there and trading on exchanges, such as Kucoin, Binance and BitZ, etc.

The present size of a ledger for Nano is about 8 GB and on average it costs around 0.112 Wh to complete one Nano transaction, which is about $0.005.

Current market situation of Nano

As mentioned above, presently Nano is taking position #38 on the top-100 coins list. Its market cap value amounts to $137 548 514. The price of the coin is $1.03; the asset is in the green.

Recently, the coin has witnessed a drop despite its expansion into China and the local crypto community. Experts blame the fall of the price back then on the Bitcoin Cash hard fork.
