NEO represents the first Chinese open source blockchain designed to transform the traditional economy into Smart Economy – one that relies on digital assets, digital identities, and smart contracts. Founded in 2014, it used to be known under the name of Antshares.

To achieve its goal of creating a secure, efficient, and legally binding smart asset management system, NEO employs technologies like P2P networking, dBFT consensus mechanism, superconductive trade mechanism with P2P exchanges without third parties, and cross-chain interoperability. The platform allows its users to both issue and trade assets, with proof of ownership being tokenized instead of the assets themselves.

All NEO tokens are premined and issued on NEO’s genesis token.
