1 When to use NXT, Nxt and nxt

NXT is the currency code. e.g. "We have enough NXT/BTC exchanges, but we need a NXT/fiat gateway."

Nxt is the network. e.g. "Nxt is not merely a way to send digital currency, it's the software framework around which a large variety of interconnected services, based around the digital currency, can be built."

nxt is a unit of the currency. e.g. "I'm a poor shibe small stakeholder with only 4399 nxt, if someone could give me 601 nxt, I'd have a nice round number."

2 Omit needless words

Being succinct is being clear. And an easy way to be succinct is to omit needless words. [1]. For instance,

"...average Bitcoin transaction time has significantly increased to the 8-to-13 minute range..."

can be simplified to

"...average Bitcoin transaction time has significantly increased to 8 to 13 minutes..."
