The NeXT Horizon Team

Unlike the vast majority of altcoin development teams who prefer to stay anonymous and disappear into the ether when the going gets tough, the NeXT Horizon team pride themselves on the quality of their work. That's because they're all damned good at what they do and compliment each others skill sets perfectly. The NeXT Horizon team are able to leave their egos at the door because they know that the people who really matter are the ones who put their faith in their work.
