NEO is one of the top-10 cryptocurrencies in the world, boasting a market capitalisation of billions of dollars. It is more than just a crypto, though. Much like Ethereum – the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap – NEO is a project that enables the creation of digital assets, smart contracts, and applications on its blockchain. Crucially, it is the first Chinese crypto to break through into the mainstream.

Crafted by Da Hongfei’s company, Onchain, NEO was originally launched as AntShares in 2014. It rebranded in 2017 and enjoyed incredible success in that year, as its token price rose by thousands of percentage points.

There are a number of reasons why NEO is so appealing to investors and developers alike. On the platform users are able to issue and trade assets and tokens are distributed to prove ownership of an asset, rather than the asset itself. Hence, it is straightforward to transfer shares, equity and assets.

NEO is not decentralised, meaning its underlying blockchain cannot be forked. As Mr Da wanted NEO to comply with Chinese regulations he has coded the platform so he and his colleagues are able to perform platform changes and upgrades at speed, whenever required – and without user consensus. As such, the centralised NEO platform is robust and, further, able to process up to 10,000 transactions per second.

“NEO is a non-profit, community-based blockchain project that utilises blockchain technology and digital identity to digitise assets, to automate the management of digital assets using smart contracts, and to realise a ‘smart economy’ with a distributed network,” the organisation’s website states.

“We want to be the place people go to when they want to do serious and reliable transactions,” said Mr Da in January 2018. Certainly, NEO is arousing the interest of investors, and it continues to attract a huge number of partners, inside and outside of its China base. Users experience less transaction latency on the platform, which supports a number of common programming languages, like Javascript and C++.

For traders, NEO provides a chance to expand and balance their crypto portfolios. Most importantly, it is designed to adhere to and move with Chinese regulations, making it a possible hedging option against Bitcoin, the original crypto that has been cracked down upon in China in the past.

NEO, which hit a high of $187.41 per token in January 2018, is one of a number of top cryptos available to trade and / or buy outright on global trading and investment platform eToro.

Their motto is “Cryptos Needn’t Be Cryptic” and the team has produced a useful short education video to help investors seeking more information about NEO.
