Since its inception in 2013, the Nxt Community always manifested a great commitment, and supportive engagement, for the project. Now, a leading investor within the community known as the ‘Megalodon’, referring to the fact this individual is the single largest stakeholder, is offering $150,000 worth of NXT digital tokens to anyone who runs NXT nodes.
Nxt is a peer to peer network, in which the network is made up of a large number of equally important nodes, each consisting of an individual machine running the Nxt client. The Nxt network does not build on the Bitcoin code. Instead, it uses its own code written from Java software.
The Nxt network is still relatively small when compared with Bitcoin and has the 14th largest cryptocurrency (NXT) by market capitalization. The number of nodes is important to ensure the security of the network: a limited number means the network can be compromised or attacked much more quickly than a larger network.
In essence, these nodes communicate with each other to create a decentralized super-computer where all contributors are rewarded for their efforts.
