NEM – New Economy Movement uses XEM, a cryptocurrency. They have officially launched on March 31, after having been developed for over a year. NEM features unprecedented Proof-of-Importance (POI), a 100% original codebase and uses very little energy. Additionally, it currently has a good number of active people, with a potential of increasing rapidly in the future.
