2ndgen blockchain

Nimiq is a browser based blockchain. It was written in Javascript ES6 and because of this, the complete blockchain runs in the browser. The main goal of Nimiq is to solve the payment solution, and to provide a browser based payment solution of sending money. They also have nearly instant transactions as well. Nimiq is a CPU only mineable coin, since it uses the Aragon2D algorithm. Nimiq intends to lower barriers of entry for blockchain technology, and make it accessible for mainstream use. With an operational betanet already live, users can experience how simple it is to mine inside a browser - installation free. Nimiq is making blockchain technology as accessible as the internet, with a vision to truly decentralize the web. Current available cryptocurrencies are complicated and counterintuitive for the average person to use. True internet decentralization is impossible if access to blockchain technology is limited to only the technically oriented people. Until blockchain can be picked up with general recognition and general usage, its true power remains unrealized. Nimiq originally began as an ERC20 (Ethereum) token, known as NET or Nimiq Exchange Token. Nimiq held its ICO throughout June and July of 2017, and raised over 10 million USD. NET trading was enabled shortly after the ICO, and development began on the project’s Github. NET was converted to NIM, the currency that is based on the Nimiq blockchain and network, on March 31st of 2018. Nimiq’s wallet (Nimiq Safe) is built right into the Nimiq website, which means there is no need to download or sync a wallet application. The wallet will lead you through a setup guide, which will help backup and secure your wallet in the case of data loss. As the Nimiq wallet is based in the browser, however, erasing your cache could delete your balance – so keeping a backup is highly recommended.

The larger a community is then the more eyes are on that project. Sharing information, red flags and concerns is more likely the bigger the community is. And larger communities are alot hard to censor and control - therefore they provide a diverse range of opinions.

Overall Nimiq this project is not known by the general community. If a project is new and has not had a lot of marketing or exposure then in general as the project grows the awareness score will increase.

The volume score is the simplest of all our metrics and quite often the bottom line metric. It doesnt matter how well a project scores on the other factors, if it is only shifting a few thousand dollars a day in volume then there is a high chance you will left holding a bag

  • low USD 24hr volume

Nimiq is a scam coin. They have a group of 1000-1300 people hyping up the coin on a telegram group. The group is being paid in Nimiq to hype the coin. Sounds like a scam to me. How does that sound to you ?

Nimiq is a truly incredibly underrated project, its easy and accessible interface and its advanced technology will allow an incredible spread of cryptocurrencies. Furthermore, the introduction of staking and the new emission curve will ensure much greater long-term support.

Nimiq is a unique project with solid tech and potential for mass adoption because of its ease of use. My only criticism is that they haven't focused enough on marketing and risk losing much needed attention to compete with other projects.

I found this project by complete accident, but it has become my primary investment. The tech is outstanding, the team appears to be highly motivated, and the community support is good. Wallet to wallet transfers take less time than XRP or XLM, and I believe to be just as secure if not more secure. Also Nimiq doesn't have the SEC breathing down its neck like XRP does. ;)

My experience with NIMIQ is consistently positive... The easiest way to buy crypto. The most pleasant, friendly and eager community. Very capable team, quick answers to questions and deliver working technology. It's a pleasure to be part of this community. And no... NIMIQ isn't a scam! For me, it's the real hidden gem in Crypto Space.

I've been following this project for 2 years know and it's my biggest bag. Guess that says it all: I trust NIMIQ, why is this so? Simply because i have never seen such a high community engagement by any coreteam ever. No matter who you are you can always reach out to the team via social platforms. This comes in clutch should you ever have a problem (which most wont have because NIMs tech is revolutionary). So in conclusion: NIMIQ is a very trustworthy coin from the angle I see it.

My experience with Nimiq has been absolutely positive. I have already made a few fiat to crypto swaps in the wallet with Nimiq Oasis and after a maximum of 4 minutes I had my $Nim in the wallet. For me, this is a unique advantage, as is the fact that Nimiq is a browser-based blockchain. The team is solid and very transparent, you can communicate with them via telegram and get your questions answered promptly. I give nimiq a thumbs up 👍.

I've stumbled across NIMIQ 2 years back and have had the same question - couldnt find any answers. However now i put in some time and can gladly say NO, NIM is not a scam. In fact I'm very confident here, cause when I joined the communities socials i found out even the core team engages with the common people. Let's forget about the revolutionary tech for a second and appreciate the transparity of the developers. If you want to build your own opinion i can recommend the whitepaper where everything is explained in detail.
