You are able to access your Nexus Wallet anywhere, anytime, by simply downloading the application and logging in (via username, Password, and PIN). A huge advantage of the Nexus Wallet is that users no longer have the burden of storing keys on a hard drive or hardware wallet, or rely on third party custodian services. A wallet.dat file for key storage (a common necessity in legacy blockchain systems) is no longer required.
View live market data from Bittrex and Binance, monitor market liquidity, and view the history of past market trends.

Search, filter, and export transactions as a *.CSV file, or view your transaction history as a live graph.
Download software updates as simply as you do with a smartphone. Checking into GitHub to see the most up to date version is no longer necessary.
Design your own skin or import others made by the Nexus community.
One can also build modules using the Nexus API, or other available APIs. To learn how to do so, please visit the Nexus Module guide available on our Github.
Your Wallet is the safest place to store your NXS. If coins are stored on an exchange or other custodial wallet, then the risk of coins being lost or stolen increases. To ensure you maintain ownership, we recommend that NXS is held in a password protected (encrypted) Nexus Wallet, or a recovery enabled Signature Chain, and that you set up a Password Recovery. Remember: your wallet, your crypto. If your coins are stored somewhere else, they are not yours.
Nexus is an open source technology, licensed under an MIT agreement (click here to view license). You are the sole custodian of your coins, meaning there is no one that can recover your coins or encryption passwords if they are lost. In the case of technical difficulties, the Nexus Community will be happy to help with Wallet related queries.
