Blockchain Network

NEM was built from the ground up to be simple for developers to use. Whether you want to build on top of NEM with your favourite programming language or interact with the NEM core in JAVA (soon to be C++), NEM blockchain has a lot to offer in power, scalability and ease of use.

Business Opportunities

Blockchain is a database technology, but built in a radically different way. Businesses that leverage the strengths of a blockchain database are likely to recognize huge operational efficiencies.
