Nxt Service Providers
Service Providers are developers who make use of Nxt to provide Services ‘on top’ of the Nxt Platform.
A Service is a feature built on top of Nxt but does not form part of the Nxt core, in the same way that email is built on top of the internet. Gmail is not integral to the internet, it is built on top of it. Services are built by third party developers known as Service Providers who are often not directly linked to the development of Nxt. By virtue of a Service being built on top of Nxt, they often make use of the Nxt core features. Examples of Services are InstantDex and NXTCash. Other examples are limited by people’s time and inclination and could include shops, financial exchanges, email, twitter and facebook. Service Providers will make possible the development of Distributed Computing, Distributed Storage, Global Collaboration and other future Nxt Technology features
