Therefore, a cryptocurrency exchange NXT Asset Exchange with its own NXT cryptocurrency was developed.

Not to mention the PoS at all is impossible, because this technology makes the production of cryptocurrency by mining an absolutely eco-friendly activity. The project also has an additional service on the decentralization of the DNS, which is an anonymous community.
