Welcome to the new internet!
The New Kind of Network
Easy To UseNKN makes it easy for everybody to use and utilize our services. Our code is available in many programming languages so it's easy to adopt for every developer.
Optimized RoutingThe NKN network always finds the most optimal route to it's destination. Using our own "proximity routing" algorithm, data is always taking the fastest possible relayers.
Private and Secure DeliveryNKN works without the direct use of an IP address. Data is stored only in the local device, and always guarantees best protection of privacy and security.
Solutions in the NKN Ecosystem
With nMobile, we created an all-in-one solution for decentralized chat, wallet integration, and solution utilization. It eliminates the possibility of security and privacy breaches by removing centralized servers entirely.
With nConnect, we offer a unique remote access solution with strongest security and ultimate privacy. This revolutionary service allows our users to reach to all their private data and personal files in just one click, whenever or wherever they want.
With dataRide we provide custom built solutions (e.g. nCDN or nConnect) for customers, as well as documented resources for developers who want to code applications on their own.
Solving all the problems todays internet can't!
Millions of nodes
NKN's novel MOCA consensus algorithm is horizontally scalable and supports an arbitrary number of consensus nodes. NKN mainnet can support millions of full consensus nodes, more than Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Aggregated high speed
Nodes and clients can utilize the aggregated speed of several routes. Adding more NKN nodes to the network can horizontally scale throughput for the entire network.
Fully peer to peer and decentralized, with no need to develop and run centralized servers. Significantly reducing complexity and costs, as well as removing the single point of failure and a centralized target for attacks or hacking.
Unique and global ID
Unique NKN addresses enable services from anywhere in the world and at any time, and also helps people discover and search for applications and services.
Extra security and privacy
End-to-end and hop-by-hop encryption without Public Key Infrastructure or 3rd party certificates.
NKN Supports all application types including real-time 3D gaming, AR/VR, and IoT, as well as edge computing and optimized routing.
