I think you’re focusing too much on comparing Nash to other products. Nash is going to stand out based on its own merits. I have done zero research into REN. I’m focused on Nash and that’s my main concern at the moment.
People will be attracted to Nash based on its own merits and that includes its compliant, easy to use and non-custodial nature. KYC is not an issue in my opinion, as 99% of exchanges have some form of KYC. Nash only requires it if you trade above $1000, and that amount will be raised in the future. If you don’t want to have KYC, there are other options out there which most people will not seek or utilise.
Nash aims to grow its own userbase, not take away from the existing cryptocurrency userbase. The goal of 1 billion users by 2030 does not involve taking users from Coinbase and other platforms. It involves gaining new users everywhere, around the world, who will be attracted by its usability, its compliance, its staking for passive income, and its easy payment system, i.e. Nash Pay. Nash is somewhere to put your money and know its safe, to save safely, to pay safely, to stake and grow your investment portfolio in a safe and secure manner.
It is, moreover, based around the ethos of “Trust Yourselves”, and it is the only regulated, compliant exchange which really puts that ethos into action.
