# NAETION Docs 👋

Welcome to the getting started guides for NAETION and NAETION ($NTN).

# What is NAETION?

NAETION is a decentralized, user-owned service marketplace that allows service providers to easily show, manage, and sell their skills. NAETION's model allows providers to keep 100% of their earnings, and lets anyone find great services quickly and easily. NAETION can take lower fees and create community ownership through the use of our blockchain token, NAETION ($NTN).

# What is NAETION ($NTN)?

NAETION ($NTN) is why NAETION can take such low fees. It also enables our community of users to have control over the entire network. NAETION ($NTN) is the utility token inside NAETION used to earn rewards, govern the network, and more.

# Why is NAETION different?

NAETION is the first service marketplace that gives service providers a true share in the upside and control of the platform they work for.

Legacy platforms like Upwork, Thumbtack, etc. take 20 to 40% of what service providers earn. Not only that, but just a few executives and investors actually own the network. NAETION takes 0% of what the provider makes, and the community of service providers control the network instead of just a privileged few.

When a service provider successfully completes a project on NAETION, they are paid in cash and rewarded in NAETION ($NTN). They can then use their NAETION ($NTN) to create and vote on proposals for how the NAETION platform should work.

NAETION ($NTN) allows QUESTers to collectively control the network and take part in its upside. Extractive web2 marketplaces, where the ownership is concentrated in a small number of hands, are a thing of the past. NAETION gives service providers a real stake in the platform at the same time as they earn a living from it.
