Building a sustainable supply chain in uncertain times

Building a sustainable supply chain in uncertain times

It is clear that organisations can only operate effectively with easy access to products and services. Likewise, no organisation can continue to grow if late payments and poor procurement processes remain in place. This is where blockchain technology can play a crucial role, in both the modernisation and improvement of the logistics and operations which are vital to the performance of supply chain systems.

Nexus Blasts Off into Space by Forming Partnership with Cutting-Edge Innovators

Nexus Blasts Off into Space by Forming Partnership with Cutting-Edge Innovators

Nexus partners with SpaceChain and appoints their Co-Founder and CTO,  Jeff Garzik, to The Advisory Committee.

Scottsdale, Ariz. — September 27, 2018   At its 2018 Blockchain Conference last week, Nexus announced its partnership with SpaceChain, the decentralized space agency that plans to  build an open-source, blockchain-based satellite network. Additionally, it was announced that Jeff Garzik, the Co-Founder and CTO of SpaceChain, will be joining the Nexus Advisory Committee.

As the third Bitcoin Core developer, Jeff Garzik brings extensive knowledge and experience to the Nexus team. Jeff attended The Georgia Institute of Technology in 1996 where he studied computer science and was involved in one of the best-known open source projects, the Linux kernel.​ Jeff co-founded SpaceChain with Zheng Zuo. The two successfully launched their first cube-satellite in February of 2018, which uses SpaceChain’s satellite software SpaceChain OS and hosts a QTUM blockchain node.

The partnership between Nexus and SpaceChain centers around collaboration to deploy a decentralized internet in space that both companies have been developing. The satellite mesh network will deliver a more accessible, secure, and censorship-resistant communication system, while demonstrating the potential of privatized, space-based initiatives. The partnership will include one of SpaceChain’s future satellites, that will host one of the Nexus nodes; they will also have the opportunity to host nodes on future Nexus satellites. Nexus is due to launch their first satellite next year. It will be the first ever satellite launch funded in cryptocurrency, with Nexus (NXS) being the cryptocurrency of choice.

As an advisor to the organization, Jeff will provide his expertise in coding and assisting Nexus in developing their 3-Dimensional Chain, an on-chain scaling solution of distributed ledgers for mass adoption. He will also assist in building the Nexus Advanced Contracts that Colin Cantrell, the Founder of Nexus, demonstrated at the 2018 Nexus Conference, held recently in Scottsdale.

“Jeff is an early contributor to the open-source movement, and someone who truly believes in what it can do to make the world more free and open.” Colin said, “I’m honored to be able to work with him, to make the promise of cryptocurrencies real for everyone.”

Nexus Announces Partnership with Foleum, Green Mining Alternative

Nexus Announces Partnership with Foleum, Green Mining Alternative

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Nexus, an innovative, open-source distributed ledger and digital currency (NXS), announced today its partnership with Foleum, an inventive blockchain mining project designed to generate the majority of its own power using green hybrid technologies. The organizations share a mutual goal of reducing the environmental footprint of mining. Foleum will measure Nexus’ energy consumption to help minimize their environmental impact as the technology evolves. Nexus is the first Blockchain partnership for Foleum since it launched in May 2017. Foleum has been mining NXS since 2015 which creates a relevant use case for its green technology.

Bitcoin mining demands a high amount of electricity to fuel its technology and Foleum allows this process to be performed with wind and solar hybrid green energy. Currently, bitcoin mining requires more energy to process than the entire amount of energy needed to power countries including Switzerland, Ireland, and more than 150 others, according to Digiconomist’s Bitcoin Energy Consumption Index. This is an important issue for the future of cryptocurrency, and Nexus aims to reduce mining energy consumption through green energy practices as it grows its innovative distributed ledger architecture and creates a mesh satellite internet network.

“I’m really excited to see alternative energy sources power Nexus,” said Colin Cantrell, Nexus Founder & chief architect, “It is aligned with the foundation of this project in finding viable means that create sustainable futures through alternative energy, economics and technology.”

“Nexus is committed to positively impacting the world through its technology. In addition to our economic and humanitarian efforts, this partnership reinforces our commitment to the environment,” said Ajay Ahuja, chief executive of Nexus. “We hope that this collaboration can serve as an example of responsible citizenship in the area of blockchain mining.”

“Nexus’ concern for the environment, and its desire to minimize its carbon footprint, makes it an ideal partner for Foleum, which will generate the majority of its own power with renewable resources. Together, these important steps will  help to create a sustainable blockchain future,” said Rahdi Fakhoury, Foleum Founder & CEO.

Nexus is actively seeking partnerships for multiple use cases for the Nexus blockchain technology across many industries. In addition to its collaboration with Vector Space Systems and LISP, Nexus will announce more partnerships throughout the year to further its vision of connecting people and technology to create a better world.
