Pablo then further emphasized that “as the world is still struggling to digest and accept the introduction of blockchain technology and adoption, NEM helps supports my vision to help educate the masses and new comers of blockchain.

Representatives from MakerDAO and NEO underlined the importance of scalability and having a user friendly Dapp that everyone can use is essential to increasing public adoption of blockchain technology.

Pablo mentioned that NEM’s user friendly platform, such as creating assets of digital value and user-friendly voting on the blockchain, were ways for NEM developers to show everyone how easy it is to use the platform and adopt into their business through the use of API.

Are dapps really efficient to all business and everyday application?

Pablo showed his pride in his involvement with the NEM community and NEM’s versatility as a platform that equips organizations with tools and easily accessible information without the need of relying heavily on cryptocurrencies and high gas prices to make a business scale.
