Make Bitcoin, altcoins and tokens private with NIX

NIX Platform combines Atomic Swaps and privacy using our unique, innovative Ghost Protocol to provide the world with a truly anonymous and decentralized transfer of assets for the cross-chain era.

What is NIX?

NIX platform will be the first privacy-based decentralized exchange manager. This system will solve privacy layers among DEX trading, creating a security layer for any protocol and tradeable asset through a multi-tiered trading structure. NIX will bridge communication between external DEX’s to create privacy elements among all and any compatible ecosystems.

Introduction and Concept

How does it work?

NIX is powered by the NIX Ghost Protocol, which involves the best technology on the market, including the Zerocoin protocol, Stealth Outputs, TOR/i2p network protection, Bulletproofs, and more. The trading process for the DEX manager is simple: Coin A is swapped to NIX, then the Ghost Protocol is applied, offering privacy and un-traceability to finally re-swap these NIX coins into coin B and have it sent to the new user through privacy smart contracts on the NIX network.

Discover the Ghost Protocol

NIX Ghost Vault

Ghost Vault is the first NIX privacy feature based on the Ghost Protocol that makes user’s coins completely private from the chain. The procedure for ghosting NIX is simple and can be performed at any time, so users can transfer NIX from the wallet to the vault and progressively send them to a new location leaving no traces.
