  • Speed: It’s aiming for fast confirmation times, aligned with the desire for cryptocurrencies to be used for everyday transactions.
  • Now Wallet & Tracker: The NOWWallet can integrate anything listed on ChangeNOW. At the same time, the NOWTracker is a portfolio tracker for asset performance analysis.
