NEM evolved in March 2015 as a fork-out version of the NXT, another popular blockchain-based virtual currency and payment network platform. NIS1 is NEM's original blockchain platform which offers flexible and customizable solutions through simple, yet powerful, built-in features. With the upcoming launch of the Symbol platform from NEM, the team has taken their extensive learnings from the NIS1 network to redefine what blockchain solutions look like for the next generation of global business.
Users of the GetBlock service can connect the XEM node to their app using the JSON RPC API method, which ensures a convenient way to interact with the NEM blockchain. The API connection allows developers to monitor the on-chain information, as well as to forget about manual configuration and constant maintenance of the relevance of the data. Information on statistics and parameters for the XEM node is displayed on the website in real-time.
The partnership between GetBlock and NEM stands for the additional support to XEM as GetBlock provides a turnkey infrastructure solution that allows anyone to connect to the full node and focus on product development without worrying about troubleshooting, network updates, and constant syncing. It empowers developers across the NEM ecosystem, significantly reducing the tension involved in interfacing with the network.
Furthermore, NEM is about to launch Symbol (XYM), the next-generation enterprise-grade blockchain solution, purpose-built for Enterprise adoption, and the GetBlock team has already started their research on adding the XYM node to the platform.
