NEO is a cryptocurrency that makes use of a blockchain technology and this technology is commonly referred to as “smart contracts.” However, it is essential to know that these smart contracts are personalized blockchains that help to reduce the need for middlemen in daily transactions. This implies that with smart contracts, you can execute your daily transactions without needing the consent of a middleman, with this, additional charges can be avoided.

With all these in mind, NEO company is much prudent to make sure that its systems meet up to the required standards of its users. NEO project ensures that security is measured-up and meets the industrial standards.
It is also important to keep in mind that there is a ‘big’ difference between smart contracts used by other cryptocurrencies and NEO. Using Ethereum as an example, 15 transactions per second can be executed by this cryptocurrency. On the other hand, NEO surpasses this rate by executing more than a thousand transaction per second.
That is due to the fact that it makes use of the Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance device to execute more significant transactions with the speed of light. NEO is thriving well in the crypto-world today, and with its USD 36 billion market cap and $56 per coin as its current market value, it is showing no signs of slowing down.
However, it is expected that the current value of NEO should increase this year and this crypto-coin is attracting lots of investors every day.

With NEON wallet, a user can claim any automatically generated by GAS token when they have NEO cryptos in their wallet. Individuals who want to use of NEON wallet should know that private keys are never stored online on its servers. This desktop wallet is compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac platforms.

It looks more like a flash drive, and it has a 4-digit password option that comes every time before it’s been operated – this makes it less likely to be hacked by anyone.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
