Differences from Bitcoin

NEO works on the guidelines of Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance ( dbFT ). This technology offers quick verification of the transactions relies on one blockchain, zero risks about the leaking of the blockchain transactions, the safety of forks and lessens the risk of any illegal actions.[6]

NEO will support almost all programming languages via a compiler, including those on, Java, Kotlin, Go and Python, greatly lowering the difficulty for developers to write smart contracts.

Much of the interest in NEO comes from its association with Onchain. Onchain developed out of NEO as a way of separating the digital currency from the blockchain development team. Onchain helps businesses to integrate blockchain technology into their day-to-day operations. NEO’s relationship with Onchain helps to bring business ventures to the platform, which aid in its growth
