Nano News: Since its origin as RaiBlocks (XRB), NANO has been leaping both in terms of development and earning recognition. The network welcomes two good news this week, for one it released a major update and CoinGate, a popular payment processing platform announces its support by stores in over 100 countries.

NANO has been unstoppable, especially after its rebranding, growing its credibility amongst technology experts and authorities and building a very solid and active community around it. Andy Johnson, public relations coordinator for NANO announced the release of version 17 of NANO, on December 19, 2018. He noted some significant changes in the network:

“It’s been an incredible journey for v17. As one of our largest releases yet it provides foundational support for future software enhancements alongside the major feature of Lazy Bootstrapping”.

Nano’s new version

The New version is focused on three fundamental lines of development:


The article quotes this as “the lazy way”, The Lazy bootstrapping intelligently download the ledger, updating the new blocks, reducing the time it takes to start participating on the network using the Nano node.

With, a node “monitors the real-time network and waits for blocks to be confirmed. Because each account-chain is a blockchain when a block is confirmed, all of the previous blocks on its account-chain are also accepted by the network”. So instead of performing the process every five minutes, the node can bootstrap every hour without any commitment.

RPC stability

This particular update will enable the developers to run commands safer, faster and with greater stability, as many RPC calls have been optimized to avoid some failures or delays in the answers.

Reduced Resource Usage

Due to the bootstrapping process, version 17, is expected to observe a  significant reduction in the bandwidth and the number of resources needed for the proper functioning of the nodes. Also enabling the nodes to handle traffic much more easily.

Support from CoinGate

Adding on to the accomplishments of NANO, Coingate announced that the users will be able to use Nano in all the affiliated shops:
