But the XEM-powered platform is exclusive in that it’s solely meant to be used for the promotion of the NEM undertaking itself.

The market has largely ignored NEM as a result of it shares lots of its objectives with Ethereum, a much more in style blockchain. The incontrovertible fact that each blockchains launched in 2015 signifies that NEM didn’t have the possibility to place itself as “the next Ethereum.” Regardless, XEM has lately been on a slight upward development, and the token’s worth has risen from $0.03 to $0.05 since March. The coin at the moment ranks at #30 when measured by market capitalization, down from the highest 20 in 2017.
Growth is partly due to normal stability within the crypto market moderately than XEM’s personal benefit. Nevertheless, XEM has outperformed Bitcoin within the short-term, up 30% over the previous 30 days, whereas Bitcoin misplaced -0.5% of its worth throughout the identical interval.
It’s not but clear whether or not NEM Hub will increase the worth of the XEM token considerably. The social media platform is extra unique than different crypto-powered social media by design, nevertheless it’s not clear whether or not that’s sufficient to save the dying NEM undertaking.
