Heat investment is a self-acclaimed to be a 3rd generation blockchain enterprise. Its main objective is to respond to the scaling problems of cryptocurrencies and blockchain products. The name actually is a derivative of an acronym - Heuristically Enhanced Asynchronous Transactions, which is a ledger system that wants to handle cryptocurrency management and a new way to address decentralized peer-to-peer transaction problems.
This project started way back in 2016 and has since them been kept alive with several updates and consistent daily trading valuation. The project consists of two developers, Svante Lehtinen and Dennis de Klerk who have combined programming experience worth about 50 years and about 5 years within the blockchain industry.
The overall infrastructure of the platform is built to accommodate optimized speed for enterprise scaled operations. It would seem that this platform took its inspiration from NXT using the time-proven Proof-of-Stake consensus. Further Heat analysis as presented below proves its worth in blockchain industry.
Sadly, even though this cryptocurrency has been trading for a while now- since 2016, it has only been listed on one fairly popular exchange. Other platforms are very low cadre exchanges or still under development and this could make it difficult for most traders and investors. Especially those who are not too familiar with the exchange where it is listed. More so, it is only being traded to BTC alone. This means regardless of what currency (other than BTC) you may have; you need to exchange to BTC first before you can buy HEAT. It is also trading on its own exchange.
If you have fiat then you will need to buy BTC from another exchange, then transfer it to the exchange where the coin is being traded. This incurs extra fee costs. With respect to storage, it has a web wallet where the coin can be stored. Hopefully, a downloadable version of the wallet will be available soon.
