Smart Economy Network
A NEW STANDARD FOR DIGITAL ASSETS
A NEW BLOCKCHAIN-BASED DIGITAL IDENTITY SYSTEM
A NEW ECOSYSTEM FOR SMART CONTRACTS
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
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.
Explore the NEO ecosystem, get up-to-date statistics and track our progress as we move into the future.
Through technologies such as P2P networking, dBFT consensus, digital certificates, Superconducting Transactions, and cross-chain interoperability the NEO blockchain enables management of smart assets in an efficient, safe and legally binding manner.
China's first original public chain
NEO project started in 2014 and has been open-source on Github since 2015. NEO applies unique technologies adapted for future industry demand, and is the strongest comprehensive domestic public blockchain.
Underlying design supports multiple types of digital assets
NEO underlying technology supports multiple types of digital assets. Users can register, transfer and trade at will on NEO.
Use digital certificate to guarantee trust
Digital certificates are supported, placing trust into the public chain. This provides full legal protection for all assets digitized through the NEO platform.
Superconductive trade mechanism
Facilitate P2P exchange of digital assets. Buyers and sellers of digital assets and currencies will be handled peer-to-peer without the need for third party exchanges.
Turing-complete smart contract
Turing-complete smart contract, which will have high certainty and finality, support parallel operation, sharding and unlimited scalability when run in NeoVM.
Program smart contract with advanced languages
NeoContract supports multiple programming languages such as C#, Java, and Go. Developers can rapidly develop smart contracts based on the NEO platform without learning a unique language.
Light-weight stack NeoVM (NEO Virtual Machine)
Neo Virtual Machine (NeoVM): NEO's lightweight stack-based virtual machine provides shorter startup times with efficient execution. Deterministic calling tree technology allows NEO to achieve unlimited theoretical scalability.
Innovative dBFT consensus mechanism
Consensus nodes use Byzantine Fault Tolerance Algorithm to reach consensus and ensure the finality of transactions. It also ensures that the system keeps its finality and availability as long as Byzantine fault occurs on less than 1/3 of the nodes.
Original Cross-chain interoperation protocol
Comprises Cross-chain Assets Swap Protocol and Cross-chain distributed transaction protocol and can achieve atomic assets swap and guarantee the operation consistency of smart contracts executed on different chains.
Lattice cryptology-quantum computer-proof technology
Introduced Lattice cryptography-based signing and encryption techinique to avoid quantum crisis by turing encryption and decryption problem into the Shortest Vector Problem(SVP) which cannot be solved by current quantum computers.
