The Nano protocol claims to be able to support and infinite amount of instant transactions with no transaction fees. The Nano cryptocurrency is represented by the symbol XRB. Nano offers a variety of cryptocurrency wallets that are available online, on mobile devices (IOS and Android), and desktops (Windows, Linux, and Mac).


The Nano cryptocurrency can be integrated with companies for online payments using Coingate, BrainBlocks, and Coinify. Nano can also be used for payments within stores using Kappture and Appia.
