nConnect key use case:NAS remote access

Finding a way to securely access data and services from anywhere is probably the biggest challenge that Internet users face today. While tablet devices have limited storage and cloud services require all your data into the cloud, NKN offers a conventional solution: nConnect, which ensures users have the power to take their data and applications anywhere they want to while keeping them nice and safe. 

NKN’s nConnect is currently working with top tier NAS vendors in this space, and we’ve already got fantastic testing results for this specific user case.

More details on nConnect and its benefits can be found in the following blog post:

nMobile progress: Cross platform notification on iOS and Android

NKN team is always determined to offer the most trusted chat app which eradicates the roots of security hacks and privacy issues of popular chatting applications by removing all centralized servers and runs only on NKN’s dataRide platform. 

One of the key challenges of decentralized messaging applications is notification, which needs to use centralized servers and adapt to different mobile operating systems. However, real time notification is essential for great user experience. Therefore, the NKN team is now implementing the cross-platform notification service of nMobile on both Android and iOS. Stay tuned for next nMobile releases.

Marketing Plans: Updating NKN Introduction presentation and official website

As some of you might have already noticed, we’ve been updating our official site in small increments since the mid of 2020. Now that we’ve completed our goals in the previous roadmaps, NKN is entering into a new phase and we’d like to present ourselves to the world better with a more approachable technology explanation and a more polished website. Our team is currently working on updating the introduction presentation, which will be available on our website soon. After that, we will use the new material as well as new visual designs to rebuild our official website   in the coming months!
