"Cryptocurrencies to Buy: NEM
NEM was one of the first "utility blockchains" to hit the market; that is, blockchain projects that are specifically designed for multiple uses and to serve as a platform to launch new ideas.
To that end, NEM's development team created a "Smart Asset System." This unique protocol allows individual users to customize the NEM blockchain to fit their needs precisely. In other words, NEM is scalable to your demands. If demand grows, NEM can seamlessly incorporate additional functionality.
In theory, NEM sounds like a market-winner, and it was. However, a hack which resulted in 500 million NEM units being stolen from a Japanese cryptocurrency exchange killed its value.
But with the hack fading from the news cycle, I believe NEM presents a shrewd opportunity. Irrespective of the breach, its underlying blockchain technology is one of the most innovative. Eventually, more investors will recognize this, increasing its value."
