Nexus Group, an innovative and rapidly growing product company, developing identity solutions for physical and digital access, has announced its partnership with Vector, a nanosatellite launch company. Two companies aim to deploy a cryptocurrency on a satellite orbiting the earth using Vector's GalacticSky Software-Defined Satellite platform.

This partnership will bring the use for GalacticSky's technology, prove the versatility of the platform and allow future Vector customers to pay for launches using NXS, which is a cryptocurrency of Nexus.

The capabilities provided by the GalacticSky platform, combined with the flexibility of Vector's launch model, bring us one step closer to accomplishing our mission of providing the world with a decentralized currency that can be accessed virtually anywhere, anytime.

Nexus will host NXS currency in space via GalacticSky in order not to be tied to a nation-state and to distribute its blockchain across multiple satellites, providing it much better performance. Vector's mission is to give accessibility to entrepreneurs and space innovators and to revolutionize the commercial space industry.

At the moment of press, these are main market parameters of Nexus:

  • Average price: $4,29
  • Marketcap: $234 054 733

1st Alternative Zcash Client to be Created by Parity

The responsibility for the continued development and support of the new client called Zebra will be with the Zcash Foundation

The leading developer of solutions for the Ethereum ecosystem, Parity Technologies, presented the first alternative client for cryptocurrency Zcash.

A new client called Zebra is designed to improve the security of the Zcash network. So, if the original Zcashd client will not be able to operate for some reason, the blockchain will be supported by nodes on Zebra.

In addition, with the help of an alternative client, developers will be able to identify bugs and eliminate defects in consensus.

The community wins across the board, as there are now more core developers working on clients, with more interests represented and clients taking different approaches on how to build apps on top. Zcash can now boast a more diversified community that can effectively tailor experiences for Layer 2 developers as well as end-users.

CTO, Parity Technologies

The responsibility for the continued development and support of the Zebra will be with the Zcash Foundation.
