NEO, formerly Antshares, is China's first ever open source blockchain. Founded in 2014, NEO’s mission has been to reinvent the way commerce is done. We believe technology drives progress and together we can create the future. Motivated by this, NEO has been created to shift our traditional economy into the new era of the Smart Economy.

A TRANSPARENT AND
FAIR WORLD

In this new Smart Economy, a paradigm shift from the "Internet of Information" to an "Internet of Value" is taking place. This will allow for seamless integration of the traditional economy and digital economy, facilitating the free flow of all assets. Exchange of value and economic activities are provided in a trustless mode. The rules, policies, and organizations of traditional society will be rightfully transparent and fair. This is an "Internet of Order" and the ultimate goal of NEO Smart Economy.
