During Bitcoin Wednesday on 2 March, 2016, Bas Wisselink spoke about a few of the use cases of Nxt, from document authentication to simple games. He considers Nxt to be one of the most usable crypto platforms that actually works today and is a board member of the Nxt Foundation, as well as its community manager since 2014.
Nxt is a second-generation “Bitcoin 2.0” cryptocurrency, considered one of the innovators among the growing pool of more than 500 cryptocurrencies. As of February 2016, it has a market cap of about $8 million. The Nxt platform includes its own asset exchange for decentralized trading. It also allows for the creation of user-defined assets and decentralized applications on the NXT blockchain, among many other features.
