NEM: Recent Price Behavior

XEM is maintaining strong upside momentum, as the price prints fresh highs for March. XEM/USDT is currently running at its fourth consecutive session of gains, having advanced as high as 18.5% within this period. The march north has been observed since the NEM Foundation released the restructuring plan. It had somewhat of a hopeful tone, which the community has taken a warm liking to hence the buoyant XEM price.

Recap – NEM Restructuring Details

As previously covered by Hacked, earlier in the month the NEM team decided to restructure its organization by working on a reduction in its operational costs. To achieve this, the organization reduced its staff numbers. The NEM Foundation team obtained $8 million in February, which will release 210 million of XEM tokens from its reserve. The critical community members of NEM approved it.

NEM Foundation president Alexandra Tinsman recently commented: “I think this is a vote of confidence that the industry is moving forward and that we are ready to pivot to a very new way of working. It’s in the best interest of the companies to be fiscally responsible with the platform, their products and their teams. We need to be, and that’s what we have done. This is a sign of good things to come.”

Finally, in terms of support, there are only just a couple of small barriers protecting a retest of the all-time-low area, $0.0350000. The zones of demand observed at; $0.0450000 and then $0.0400000.
