NKN Short video series | Developing with NKN

As you probably already know, we aim to make NKN as easy to use as it could possibly be. Because of this, we wrote our code with adoption in mind. NKN is a project that was created by developers, for developers, to revolutionize the way we write apps in the future.

See how you could just use NKN in your own application as quickly as 1-2-3!

Struggling to manage a lot of remote machines on a daily basis? nShell comes in handy here! It is more convenient and more secure than the popular SSH tool!

Does Binance support mainnet or is it still the erc20 token requiring swap?

It is still ERC-20. Coinbase does not support any mainnet in recent years. So it is important to keep the token format consistent between the two tier-1 exchanges that have the largest share of NKN trading volume. Thus we have accurate pricing and good liquidity.

That’s unfortunate, from a token usage perspective, it’s an extreme pain in the butt + $ cost of 2 transfers and a swap, simply to get it to mainnet for a state of usage.

If you want a higher number of users and/or developers, you need to remove the complexities of acquisition for the less technical.

For adoption, I agree we definitely need much easier way to acquire NKN mainnet tokens. There are a few ways:

  1. The app developer hides the complexity: e.g. nConnect, we charge user fiat and automatically convert into NKN mainnet token under the hood.

  2. Users can acquire NKN mainnet tokens directly from swft swaps, where you can use any crypto they have to directly swap into NKN Mainnet tokens with very very low fees
    SWFT added support for NKN mainnet and NKN ERC-20 token swap

  3. We are still working with more exchanges to support both ERC-20 and Mainnet NKN tokens,.
