NEM Foundation to bolster smart blockchain adoption with global webinars

The NEM.io Foundation, the creator of the peer-to-peer NEM blockchain platform, is embarking on a series of events for the NEM community and newcomers to the blockchain ecosystem.

The local events and global webinars will promote the use of blockchain and distributed ledger technology to governments, academics, industries, developers, and users. NEM will showcase its “out-of-the-box” blockchain solutions and simple API around the world.

“Interest in blockchain technology is growing globally, but not everyone has the background or skill set to get started. We created the NEM platform as an easy-to-use blockchain solution and a simple API,” said Lon Wong, President of the NEM.io Foundation. “Seeing is believing, and this roadshow will allow us to demonstrate the power of NEM in promoting the widespread adoption of blockchain technology.”

Based in Singapore, the NEM.io Foundation is currently one of the most well-funded and successful blockchain technology projects in the cryptocurrency industry. It is dedicating a portion of its recently launched $40 million development fund to these events, which will feature presentations, panel discussions, education sessions, and activities.

“Our goal is to empower leaders, equip developers, and educate the public on NEM,” said Jason Lee, NEM’s Global Director for Partnerships and Strategic Alliances. “There is a tremendous amount of interaction focused on NEM already happening on social media and forums. We want to build on this by offering opportunities for in-person meetings to develop these conversations further.”

Upcoming Global Webinars with the NEM.io Foundation will take place on:

  • September 25, 2017 at 8:00 PM (GMT +8)
  • October 4, 2017 at 8 pm (GMT +8)
  • October 20, 2017 at 9 pm (UTC -7)

In addition to this event series, NEM is currently developing a state-of-the-art Blockchain Centre in Malaysia, and investing USD$5 million into the NEM Blockchain Venture Fund to support new projects.
