# Network Service Providers Key Concept
unikname.network provides services through specialized nodes called Service Providers Nodes. These nodes are like gateways and make the bridge between the decentralized network and the traditional web. They provide services to @unikname ID owners in exchange for UNIK tokens. They are core in the unikname.network tokenomics.
Network Service Providers Nodes are operated under licence, granted by the community.
Elementary services provided are called
Network UniT Services (NUTS). All available services are listed in a directory called the
Directory Of Network Unit Services (DONUTS)
