The new features provided in Catapult, such as combined transactions and multi-level, multi-signature accounts, will help to speed up the adoption of enterprise blockchain by making it more simple to use and implement tasks involving“electronic money systems, user authentication, land and property registration, logistics tracking, food traceability, or other uses.”
In conjunction, Tech Bureau will also be releasing “a self-service, on-demand developer lab” which will allow individuals and companies to quickly and easily start on Catapult without having to worry about managing the structure and organization of it on their own.
What are the People Saying?
Some users are happy to hear about the announcement, with one user even calling NEM “the most developer-friendly blockchain platform.”
