Niobio Cash pioneered hard forks that other currencies did not dare to do, mostly by changing its algorithm from CryptoNight to CryptoNight Heavy.
Other cryptocurrencies projects follow the steps of NBR:
Karbo used the NBR code in his updates.
Niobio Cash has participated in updates of other currencies:
Helder Garcia collaborated with the hard fork to change the difficulty algorithm of Luka, a currency of Chilean origin, previously held at NBR.
