Malaysian Government, Universities Team to Put Degrees on a Blockchain
Malaysia's education ministry has formed a new consortium of universities to issue and verify degrees on the NEM blockchain.
The NEM blockchain project is launching a development studio to support its move towards a major protocol upgrade later in 2019.
The NEM Foundation is mapping out its survival plans in real time after a funding injection of roughly $8 million last month.
Traditional markets continue to struggle during the coronavirus crisis while cryptocurrencies are seeing an upswing.
The leading non-profit behind the NEM blockchain is seeking $7.5 million in emergency funding to keep the lights on.
NEM surged 25 percent today to reach its highest price since early September while accumulating its most 24-hour trading volume in over three months.
