I’m not writing this from an investor perspective, but from a developer perspective, I have worked with Ethereum in-fact we started Sernez in ETH block. Just take a look at our MVP http://lamina.sernez.io/ which is built over NEM. With ETH or say top 20 chains it is not possible to create something like Lamina.
The cost to notarize a document is super low. This is one of the reasons why we already signed MoU’s with universities. I don’t think we can build something like this with other blocks.
I do understand that NEM is not perfect. It is slow, but hey, it’s in top 20 for a long time. Again, the top 20 is just bullshit because the I know people working with EOS and other chain and they are doing nothing. You have no idea what Catapult can do to NEM. It’s a sleeping giant, and I do believe that NEM will rise to the top 5 in the next couple of years.
NEM don’t have a brand strategy. That’s the only thing I’m worried about NEM. Most of the people are not aware of NEM, and they don’t know the advantages. Just take a look at the NCF. There are very less amount of companies applying for NCF. EOS had millions of application in last few months when they opened their fund. I think brand awareness makes a lot of difference in any business.
