Nano (NANO) is a cryptocurrency with its own blockchain launched in 2015 under RaiBlocks. Nano is a low-latency payment platform that requires minimal resources to approach, ideal for peer-to-peer transactions. Nano allows instant transactions, zero fees and infinite scalability with pre-cache wallets.
The Nano protocol is meant to be lightweight, where running a node costs close to nothing. The idea is that each account has their own blockchain as part of a larger directed acyclic graph, where each individual provides the computational power for the verification of their own transactions, not requiring updates of the overall ledger.
