We have created a marketplace where items can be purchased using NORT – https://northernexchanges.com. It is also possible to buy NORT coins directly on the website, bypassing both Exchanges and also entry into Bitcoin. This is a rare feature in altcoins. In the future we will look into partnering with different vendors for sales of items.
As an incentive for using the Northern marketplace we will establish “Business-nodes”. These will be a small pool of masternodes which will be run by the team, and rewards from these nodes will be distributed to our merchant partners each month. This is an original idea which draws on the masternode technology to benefit those merchants coming into the cryptocurrency space.
