Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Effortless organization
Pro Efficient use of System Resources
It seems to be well written and in no way bogs my system.
Pro Very responsive
There is nearly no lag between multiple instances.
Pro Incorporates tasks, notes, and collaboration
Plus: auto save, sharing permissions, various modes for organization, tab suspension, (optional!) new tab, layout switching, multi-platform, file attachments, most web apps supported, and its actively developed and updated with new features. With some ingenuity and a few extra extensions, I've even included my local directory resources in my client workspaces with in-place editing.
Pro Works seamlessly across multiple monitors and browser instances
Due to NANO's structure it requires 0 fees.
Pro Instant transactions
Instantaneous transactions. The fastest cryptocurrency in activity now.
Pro Does not require mining
Does not require mining
NANO is provably decentralized.
Pro Best cryptocurrency for daily use
With instant, feeless and decentralized transactions, Nano is the most ethical and the best cryptocurrency for daily use.
Forever limited number of Nanos .
Pro Very secure
In theory, in order to send a transaction you just need to notify the receiving wallet, making it fully P2P (Peer-to-Peer).
Nano is easy to integrate with other platforms.
Nano is hypereefficient. The entire network could run on the output of a single wind turbine
Pro Great community
Pro Fairly distributed
Pro Inclusive, classless
Pro Great for developers
Nano is very easy to develop with. There also exist many libraries for a wide variety of programming languages.
Pro Easy to use
Easy to use. What bitcoin was meant to be.
Pro Easy adoption to every day business
Pro Not traceable because of speed
Nano is so fast that can't be tracked by anyone.
It has 0 supply emission
Con Worst than alternatives
For free accounts, you can only have 5 personal workspaces and 3 shared workspaces.
Con Application concept changing all the time
They still seem to be searching heavily for their vision of productivity focussed tab management. Big changes in user interface have occured in the last years. The UI is more complex than needed and it is not clear what they want to achieve.
Con Duplicating and loosing windows and tabs
Sometimes window sessions are duplicated and have to be merged by hand. More than once sessions and tabs have been lost. Mostly because it couldn't cope with Chrome restarting. Once also because the backend was updated and it went wrong. Workona has not at all proven to be reliable.
Con Doesn't always play well with others
Even though most of the bugs and glitches are a result of conflicts with other extensions or browser features (e.g. edge rolling our new tab management features)... it takes a lot of trial an error to figure out what works. Some feedback by way of a useful error message would help.
Con Traceable transactions
Not anonymous, but there is discussion to change this.
Con Lower/slow adoption
Perfect for peer to peer but lot of work to do to get business on board.
Con Strongly opposed by Bitcoin maximalists because it threatens Bitcoins existence
As an example, the censoring by moderators of the biggest cryptocurrency forum on Reddit /r/cryptocurrency.
Con Prone to hoarding
Many people might want to hold nano longer term as demand grows and supply is limited. However fortunately there are no direct financial rewards for holding nano as opposed to proof of stake currencies.
Con Lesser known compared to other alternatives - it doesn't have much presence outside of the crypto space
The Nano Foundation doesn't have a massive marketing budget. Nano does only one thing, and that one thing directly competes with Bitcoin. In the short term it's going to be very difficult for Nano.
