An NXT investment allows you to do a lot of really interesting things, but the basic use of this cryptocurrency is to utilize it as a building block for other platforms. While there are a ton of so-called "build your own blockchain" projects out there none of them offer quite so many robust features as this one.
This token is one of the few that is not based on Ethereum. Instead, it runs on its own code. It's also 100% proof of stake which is quite rare as even most POS coins are also partially proof of work as well. What's more is they are building a world where crypto can represent real-world goods and be traded anytime. Bridging cryptocurrency with exports could be this start up's trump card.
You can buy NXT on most top-level exchanges so you shouldn't have any trouble acquiring it. This also is a plus for the coin interestingly enough as many of its newer competitors are not on exchanges with big volume which can hinder their exposure to new investors.
The largest trading pair is Bitcoin-based pairings, but if you are an investor from Indonesia you may be interested to know that there is an impressive amount of volume for an INR pair which is unusual for most coins. The best place to store your new asset is using the official wallet which is available for Windows, Linux, Mac or Android.
