NEM price analysis: XEM/USD is riding a bullish wave amid Timechain partnership news

  • NEM is the best performing coin of the day with 13% growth.
  • Timechain Wallet added NEM support.

NEM (XEM) is the best-performing digital asset of the day out of top-20 coins. Currently, it takes the 17th place with the market value of $999M and an average daily trading volume $24M, which is sharply higher from $8M registered on September 30. NEM experienced a 13% surge in recent 24 hours to trade at $0.1140 at the time of writing.

What's behind the move

The digital asset may be reacting to the NEM partnership with Timechain Wallet that offers rich functionality, including storage for digital assets and options to buy, sell or hold cryptocurrency. The platform is a useful tool for crypto assets management and an instrument for natural interaction with other blockchain-based services and users. 

Now NEM users can create multiple side-chain wallets with Timechain and also buy and sell digital assets right from their wallets.

“Wallets are becoming the centerpiece of blockchain mass adoption. Timechain strives to offer the most simple solution to use blockchain and cryptocurrencies to its users. NEM technology is a front-runner for digital assets management. We need to popularize this amazing tech to the market. Businesses will dramatically reduce their cost and greatly increase their distribution reach by using this solution,” CEO of Timechain, Louis Cleroux commented.

Once it is cleared, the recovery will be extended towards the next bullish aim at $0.1260 (September 6 high) and $0.1311 (DMA100, September 5 high). 

On the downside, the local support is created by psychological $0.10 and followed by $0.0982 (SMA50, 1-hour). Once below, the sell-off may continue towards $0.0959 (SMA200, 1-hour).
