Why I switched to NANO for my preferred payment method?

The answer is simple. It’s fast, it’s fee-less and it’s very convenient to use. Since 3 years ago, I’ve been accepting only ETH for custom development work. When Cardano was announced, I also accept ADA together with ETH. ETH is super slow compared to ADA but still useful as a lot of my clients prefer to pay ethers instead of other cryptocurrency.

But now, there’s NANO. This is actually an old cryptocurrency but I just found out about it because more and more users prefer to get paid via NANO. I was very curious and tried the Natrium wallet (check out natrium.io) to send and receive NANOs.

To my surprise, what I read in twitter, reddit, and everything is actually true. It’s insanely fast and miraculously free! Yep, almost all cryptocurrencies charge a certain amount of fee for your funds transfer to be processed (Except IOTA and NANO). With NANO, you don’t need to pay any fee at all. Like how the hell is this not used by everyone else. I tried sending from wallet to exchange and from wallet to wallet and it’s absolutely freakin’ fast! It blew my mind! This is what a decentralized crypto should be. Fast, free, and easy to use.

In fact it’s the world’s fastest cryptocurrency in existing. If you don’t believe me, Google it!

So from now on, I’ll be accept NANO and only NANO.

Thank you Colin LeMahieu for creating NANO! You just realized the vision of Satoshi Nakamoto!

Xcode 11.5 update and the Exposure Notification API

I just updated my Xcode to version 11.5. This version now support the Exposure Notification API. This API is used for contact tracing. So if you’re developing an app for contact tracing, this must be pretty useful. I haven’t read details about the Exposure Notification API, but I’m pretty sure it will speed up development of such apps.

So how this it work? It’s already explained extensively by MacRumors. Check out this article here.

If you want to know more about the ExposureNotification framework, head to Apple Developer’s official documentation. There are topics linked there that explains each class of the framework.

Are you excited to try the API? I’m not as I don’t have any clue about iOS development. Why am I writing about this? I don’t know, just love to write something because this is my blog.

Why are you reading this? I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22.
