Core Features of Neo Smart Economy

Sometimes people call Neo Smart Economy the “Ethereum of China”. This is because the network has some features that Ethereum shares as well, such as decentralized applications (dApps) and social networks. Let’s explore the main features of this network:

  • NeoContracts. Unlike other smart contract-based protocols, the developers of NeoContract can utilize existing programming language (C# and Java etc.) instead of learning new languages. As a result, there are more developers are willing to build new dApps or support those languages that already exist may find NeoContract’s flexibility to work across different programming languages appealing.
  • Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerant (dBFT). This is what Neo Smart Economy uses as a consensus mechanism To protect its blockchain and maintain the synchronization of its distributed computer network. The dBFT is similar to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) mechanism and it utilizes a real-term voting system to decide the order of running software for computers to create the next block on its blockchain.

Tokenomics of the Neo Smart Economy

NEO coin has a fixed supply of 100 million. More than 70% of the total supply is currently in circulation with a approximate market cap of $2 billion. Smart contracts are gradually releasing the roughly half of Neo Smart Economy currencies that were kept in reserve to pay for Neo Foundation expansion.

Platform users use Gas to fund transaction on the Neo blockchain. Nevertheless, there is a built-in discount of 10 Gas for each transaction in the system, thus the majority of transactions are free. The fees are divided between system fees, which are returned to token holders through staking. In terms of transaction fees, those are paid to the consensus nodes.
