We are very proud to see so many participants indeed enjoying our specific Earn campaign!
Due to extremely popular demand, the Coinbase Earn NKN campaign was completed within 2 days after all budgeted tokens were distributed. Missed this one? don’t worry! We will have more Learn and Earn campaigns coming in for the next season! Just stay tuned!

Coinbase adding $EUR and $GBP fiat pairs for $NKN

NKN Mainnet v2.1.7 Release introduces fast and light sync
We released two significant updates in our new mainnet version v2.1.7 at https://github.com/nknorg/nkn/releases. In this version we are introducing two new sync modes: fast sync and light sync.
- Fast sync works as node will sync the same full block history as before, but with a much faster speed by syncing the state trie directly. This will speed up the initial blockchain sync up substantially.
- Light sync mode, node will only sync headers of the old blocks without transactions. This will dramatically reduce the disk storage requirement for NKN light sync nodes.
For more detailed information about the two new sync modes and how to enable them, please read:
