To achieve it, NEO combines blockchain technology with the concept of digital identity via smart contracts. This leads to the elimination of third parties and automatization of digital asset management. Smart economy has the potential to revolutionize financial relations on a global scale.

The non-fungible NEO token is the native asset of the network. There are also utility GAS tokens intended to pay fees in the network. They can be divided up to 0.00000001 GAS.

NEO offers fast transactions (up to 10,000 TPS). The platform is often referred to as the “Chinese Ethereum” because it allows the creation of decentralized applications (dApps) based on smart contracts. NEO has open source code and it’s free to access on GitHub.
