  • —— NEO Development Platform ——

    NEO is a non-profit community-based blockchain project. It is a distributed network utilizing blockchain technology and digital identities to digitize assets and uses smart contracts to automate digital i-assets to realize a “smart economy”. NEO officially launched in 2014, and launched on Github in June 2015. It has now become the top ten open source public-chain projects in terms of market capitalization in the world.

    The NEO technical team is based in Shanghai. Since the project is open sourced on Github, any developer can contribute code to NEO at any time and place. In NEO’s ecosystem, community organisations such as City of Zion (CoZ) and NewEconoLab (NEL) have formed a strong technical team. At the same time, hundreds of dApps have been born in the ecology based on NEO.

    NEO supports a variety of digital assets and supports digital certificates. It also has unique technical features such as the original dBFT consensus mechanism, the super conducting trading mechanism, Turing’s complete smart contracts, and cross-chain interoperability protocols.
