1. Proxies Overview

 A proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application) that acts as an intermediary for 
 requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, 
 requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource available from a 
 different server and the proxy server evaluates the request as a way to simplify and control its 
 complexity. Proxies were invented to add structure and encapsulation to distributed systems. XIN 
 provides several in-core proxies which can be extended easily and accessed with simple HTTP GET
 requests. Proxies are playing an important role in XIN's interconnectivity strategy, enabling
 the XIN platform to 'reach out' for additional services and features running within the core-scope.
 Running within core-space enables proxy data to interact with XIN's blockchain, transactions and
 notification system, making it easy to build public or private services. Due to it's transparent
 API access, proxies are reachable from XIN's smart wallet too. Current proxies are used to fetch 
 realtime data from exchanges and blockexplorers for the cryptocurrency market but they are not 
 limited to those and more proxies, connecting to common data services are in development.
