The current price of NEO is $9.89.
NEO is a non-profit community-driven blockchain project. It utilizes blockchain technology and digital identity to digitize assets and automate the management of digital assets using smart contracts. Using a distributed network, it aims to create a “Smart Economy”.
It uses a delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance (dBFT) consensus mechanism and can support up to 10,000 transactions per second. To achieve consensus, book keeping nodes are randomly selected to validate transactions on the network based overlapping networks of trust in a manner most similar to Hyperledger Fabric and Stellar which employ subtlety different implementations to solve for the Byzantine General’s problem. Systems employing dBFT for consensus cannot hard fork into two separate chains as the mechanism relies on 2/3 majority rule to operate.
NEO was founded in 2014 and was open sourced on GitHub in June 2015. NEO believes that community development is its top priority. It has a huge developer community around the world, such as CoZ, NEL and NeoResearch, who continuously contribute to NEO development. Millions of community members are active on Reddit, Discord, Github and Twitter.
