While there will be no “next Bitcoin”, there will be blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies filling specific niches, providing specific solutions to specific problems… making things better. Right now, NEO is taking the needed steps towards a “mightier blockchain developer ecosysytem”.
NEO is a non-profit community-based distributed-network that seeks to realize a “smart economy” by way of blockchain technology and digital identity to digitalize assets which are then auto-managed by a smart contract system programmable with languages that developers are very familiar with (Java, C/C# and Go). https://neo.org/
NEO plans to launch the first blockchain eco-development competition in China. Co-organized by Microsoft and with support from Elastos, INNOSPACE+, Kaiyuanshe, and Onchain, this event will result in the development of awesome new apps with the support of NEO blockchain and Microsoft’s dev environment and tools. https://neo.org/competition.html
Digital Assets + Digital Identity + Smart Contract =
NEO has a robust Reddit community of 38,487 readers ( https://www.reddit.com/r/NEO/ ).
I purchased NEO a few weeks back when it was worth $27. It has since climbed to over $40, and the image shows its price as of the time of publication of this article.

In addition to NEO’s dev competition, NEO has made several recent announcements that have sent the coin price up, including the use of NEO on the Ontology platform, a new distributed trust network by Onchain ( http://www.onchain.com/en-us/ ).
Despite the price jump, NEO has received some criticism. Appearing on GitHub, this article raises at least 6 arguable points regarding the value (or not) of NEO, which is responded to on Medium by Malcolm Lerider.
My opinion… ?
In addition to all the great announcements and progress NEO has made, because NEO is NOT fractional, and thus cannot be purchased fractionally…
Get in on NEO now!
NEO is purchased by exchanging Bitcoin (BTC) for it. If you don’t have BTC, buy at least $100 worth here and you and I will both get an extra $10 worth for FREE!
Download your NEO wallet. I use the City of Zion NEON Wallet.
Once you have your BTC, exchange some for NEO here.
Do you own NEO?
