What problem does this service solve?

Ethereum is a general purpose blockchain with a smart contract functionality that can be implemented to automatically execute certain functions. The Ethereum blockchain and its native currency Ether, are a central components of the entire blockchain ecosystem. A large number of other tokens are built upon its platform, and Ether currently represents around 15% of the total market capitalization of all digital currencies.NEM is designed to be a blockchain platform with improved scale and speed. NEM's blockchain is permissioned and private. It has some of the best transaction rates of any private ledger in the industry.

Company Description

Ethereum is a blockchain-based computing platform and operating system whose core innovation is enabling smart contracts. Ethereum's smart contract functionality, and versatile scripting language, have made it the most popular network for creating decentralized applications. What makes Ethereum different from Bitcoin is that its primary purpose is to serve as a general purpose blockchain for creating DApps, and not as a payment network. Ethereum was created by Vitalik Buterin. It was launched in July 2015 and has become one of the most important blockchain platforms in the industry. Ether is the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain and can can be used as a transfer of value, as well as a form of compensation for mining. The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) executes scripts using a network of public nodes. "Gas" is used as an internal transaction pricing mechanism that decides how resources are used on the network.

NEM is a cryptocurrency and blockchain platform that allows multiple ledgers on the same blockchain. NEM Smart Assets are used to create mosaics for any asset. Transaction fees are paid with NEM's native currency, XEM. NEM originally began as a community-oriented cryptocurrency that was built from the ground up in the Java programming language.
NEM's goal is to achieve widespread distribution through improved scale and speed. It pioneered several blockchain features such as its proof-of-importance (POI) consensus algorithm, encrypted messaging, a unique reputation system, and multi-signature accounts.
NEM is also developing a commercial blocckahin called Mijin, that is currently being tested by several companies and financial institutions.
In early 2018, approximately $400 million worth of XEM were stolen from a Japanese exchange called Coincheck, that was the victim of huge hack. The exchange failed to implement proper security for this coin protocol, and the hackers only stole XEM coins as a result. Instead of creating a fork to deal with this issue, NEM set up an automated tagging system that flagged these funds. NEM then stopped tracking these stolen coins
