How to verify installer's integrity

For better security, you can verify the integrity of the installer you’ve downloaded to make sure it’s original and hasn’t been tampered with. In order to do so, check the SHA-512 hash of the installer by following the instructions and compare the result you got with the correct hash provided below. If the hashes don’t match, please let Nexus team know about that.

 

How to get SHA-512 hash of a file

On Windows

  1. Open Command Prompt (press Windows + R, type cmd into the textbox, then press Enter)
  2. Type this command:
    certUtil -hashfile pathToFile SHA512

    and press Enter (replace pathToFile with the path to the file that you’ve downloaded)

On MacOS (OS X) and Linux

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Type this command: shasum -a512 pathToFile and press Enter (replace pathToFile with the path to the file that you’ve downloaded)

LOGIN TO YOUR WALLET

With the release of Tritium you will be able to access your Nexus Wallet anywhere, anytime, by simply downloading the application and logging in (via username, password, and pin)

Logging in to Nexus will be comparable to accessing an online banking app, without the requirement of providing a centralized service with your personal data (birth name, birthdate and passport details) when creating an account. 

A huge advantage of the new Nexus Wallet is that users will no longer have the burden of storing private keys.

MODULES

The Nexus Wallet provides a platform to easily install and create modules using APIs which give access to features such as Contracts, Tokens, and Assets. Building a Nexus module is as easy as developing a web page; you do not need any specialist blockchain programming skills. Modules can also be built using other available APIs, such as those for trading dashboards or holding other cryptocurrencies in the wallet.

CUSTOMIZABLE SKINS

Design your own skin or import others made by the Nexus community.

STAKING

NXS can be Staked inside the Nexus Wallet with a continuous internet connection (24 hours a day, 7 days a week), providing security to the network. In return, NXS holders can earn a Stake Rate between 0.5% and 3.0% per year.

SECURITY

Your wallet is accessed by a technology called Signature Chains which not only enable you to log in to your wallet anywhere, they also provide higher security through the use of a PIN, Password Recovery, Login System, Quantum Resistance, Reversible Transactions, and the future use of Password Managers and Biometrics.

PIN

A PIN is requested every time a transaction is created, much like using a bank card. This makes it more difficult to hack into someone’s account, similar to Two-Factor Authentication (2FA).

Password Recovery

The wallet also has a password recovery system, in which users can set up a ‘recovery phrase’ (either 10, 20 or 100 words). The master seed phrase provides extra assurance, enabling one to recover their Nexus Account in the event that it is compromised, or the password has been forgotten.

Login System

Given that the Nexus Wallet is accessed through a login system, a wallet.dat file for key storage (a common requirement in legacy blockchain systems) is no longer required.

Quantum Resistance

The key pair to your wallet is also changed with every transaction, and the public key is hidden until it is used. The result of this is a high security standard with support for multiple signature schemes such as FALCON.

Reversible Transactions

Transactions are required to be claimed (signatures are required from both sender and receiver). The result is a two-step validation process which prevents users from losing funds if accidentally sent to non-existent accounts.

Password Managers

To prevent attacks on your Sigchain through methods such as keyloggers, we designed the architecture to support hardware password managers such as the Zamek Hardware Password Manager.

Biometrics

In the future, we envision the use of biometrics for the generation of usernames, or as a secondary secret that can be used to improve the security of a Sigchain.

 

PROTECTING YOUR WALLET

The Nexus Wallet is the safest place to store NXS. If coins are stored on a centralized exchange or a mining pool, then that entity has full custody. Third party custody comes with a multitude of risks. To ensure you maintain ownership, we recommend that NXS is held in a password protected (encrypted) Nexus Wallet.

Nexus is a decentralized organisation, all software is licensed under an MIT/X11 open source license. You are the sole custodian of your coins, Nexus cannot unfortunately help if coins or encryption passwords are lost. However, the Nexus Team is always happy to help with any wallet support related queries
