Upcoming Event: NEO DevCon in San Francisco
NEO DevCon in San Francisco (January 30th 2018 – January 31st 2018)
The NEO team had a very eventful 2017 that helped shape the cryptocurrency landscape.
From the full rebranding of the company from Antshares in June, releasing the NEO Smart Contract 2.0, NEO VM, the completion of NEP-1 to NEP-6, and a series of strategic partnerships such as the one with Microsoft China that pushed the NEO ecosystem to over 40 dapps, NEO has set itself up for a new year full of momentum.
Dubbed the “Chinese Ethereum”, NEO has done everything but stayed confined to the borders in China. The NEO team has hosted developer meetups all over the world uniting NEO communities across China, Toyko, New York, California, Singapore, and Seoul.
