NEM has been positioned as a platform for enterprise use, it is featured in our website and a lot of our presentations revolves around enterprise adoption. As someone who has been promoting NEM regularly, when I meet potential enterprise companies (usually with little understanding of crypto and blockchain), I mention a few ‘classic’ use cases that NEM has been working on.
Where I get somewhat stuck is when they ask me for something more ‘in-depth’ like a case study or walk-through of an enterprise using NEM.
Can we come up with world-class reports showcasing NEM’s fundamentally superior technology? I think the team has done an excellent job developing examples on our website, building a use case map and there could be a very long post on all the ‘use cases’ we have, here are some: public sector, voting, degree verification, supply chain, intellectual property, entertainment, digital collectible assets, tagging of luxury products, IoT (Internet of Things)/IoNEM, healthcare and much more.
Of course, there are multiple more use cases that I may have missed out (please share them) but what I would like to explore is in building solid case studies on our use cases for enterprise adoption, especially those who are not bound by NDAs. Can we come up with reports like this that provide a structured approach towards understanding our platform.

I have tried contributing through a joint-article on “Cryptocurrency and blockchain: thoughts for the future” which was published in the LexisNexis Internet Law Bulletin’s promotional piece for ILB 21.6. This is one of the largest portal for legal professionals in 175 countries. You can read the full version here. However, all these won’t work unless or until we influence the use of the NEM blockhain, especially the public chain (private chain options has been preferred with enterprise companies).
- Would it bring confidence and benefit to have in-depth reports which we can give to NEM leaders across the world to use?
- Is it necessary to develop solid case studies for large corporates, enterprise, government etc.? What are other ways besides showcasing use cases?
- Are we overcomplicating things and should we just have have a step-by-step guide for enteprise adoption for business people and a separate one for developers?
We have been working with token projects who are swapping from other blockchain protocols to NEM, 2019 could be the year where we now target enterprise projects to continue deepening relationships and truly champion NEM as an enterprise-ready solution. We need solid case studies to build a solid foundation for NEM.
