Neo enters the world of decentralized identities with NFT-based Domain Name Service: NeoNS

Today we are pleased to announce the launch of NeoNS — the first Neo name service provider on Neo N3. NeoNS offers a more streamlined, efficient and functional experience within the Neo ecosystem and beyond. You can visit NeoNS and start registering names now at NeoNS complements our all-in-one, feature and dApp rich ecosystem, adding to the array of developer and user friendly solutions such as decentralized oracles, NeoFS, and NeoID. With the launch of NeoNS, we continue to build key Web3 infrastructure that allows individuals to move around the web with greater ease, freedom, security, and privacy. NeoNS gives users an easy-to-remember way to collect Neo N3 wallets in one place, removing the need to remember and store long and complex addresses. Businesses will also benefit from NeoNS NFT-embedded domain ownership that ensures no one other than the domain owner can take time or censor the content linked to the domain. NeoNS works with new domains but also allows linking already existing DNS domains or files under decentralized domain aliases. Web3 Identity Owned And Controlled By You Neo’s N3-hosted domains utilize the top-level domain extension — .neo, — managed by the Neo Council, which is voted in by the NEO token holders. Users can also create subdomains from domains that they own. For example, if you owned hello.neo you could create home.hello.neo. Each of the human-readable subdomains can be mapped as an alias to any records stored on the N3 blockchain such as wallet addresses, dApp addresses, or decentralized files. This will allow developers to better organize data used for their dApps. Unlike traditional centralized domain names, all registered .neo subdomains are minted on N3 as NFTs, fully owned by users. The NFT domain format means that domain ownership is easily transferable between wallets and traded as any other kind of NFT. Each domain is stored in the user’s wallet rather than on a centralized server where traditional domains are managed. Helping to solve Web3’s UX issue As the sole owner of the .neo subdomain, the user has full freedom to decide what a given domain links to, whilst all information stored under the alias is censorship and third party control proof, meaning no centralized authority can delete or make the information inaccessible. Whether it is about having a human-readable wallet address, mapping .neo domain to content such as an NFT gallery, or using NeoNS for better organization of decentralized files and N3 dApp-related information, Neo is making navigating Web3 more user-friendly and intuitive. We believe that such user-friendly organization of blockchain information is a milestone for blockchain UX entering the realm of ‘the familiar’ and onboarding the next generation of mainstream web3 users.

Introducing the Neo Polaris Launchpad — Compete for $500,000 in prizes and incubation opportunities

Introducing the Neo Polaris Launchpad — Compete for $500,000 in prizes and incubation opportunities - In 2021 Neo launched N3, the newest and most powerful version of the Neo blockchain development platform. Alongside the release, the Frontier Launchpad was initiated, calling on trailblazers to be the first to take advantage of Neo’s powerful features. Over 700 developers answered the call, sharing in over US $100,000 in prizes and $200,000 in post-event funding. With foundations firmly established, developers can now look towards the Polaris Launchpad for the next opportunity to join the growing Neo ecosystem. Just like the Northstar was a guide for travelers who would journey through the wilderness, the Polaris Launchpad can be seen as a guiding light for developers seeking a home on the Neo platform. Polaris features five development categories representing the next wave of applications we would like to see come to life on N3. These categories are: DeFi, Metaverse & NFT, DAO, Middleware Incorporating NeoFS/Oracle, General, Neo is upping the ante, with a $500,000 prize pool and opportunities to receive further funding through Neo’s $200 million EcoBoost program. We are also adding a bonus round, Polaris Plus, in which we will allow the community to vote for their favorite projects with their own tokens. Neo will match these votes through quadratic funding to the tune of a minimum US $57,500. As always, developers can expect to receive hands-on support from Neo’s global development community to help them bring their projects to life. Neo’s multi-language support provides a range of options, offering a choice between C#, Python, Go, or Java smart contacts. Developers can also take advantage of Neo N3’s full stack of native features, including the NeoFS distributed storage platform and oracles, along with best-in-class tooling. To register for the Neo Polaris Launchpad, please head over to our DevPost event. — Competition details - Highlights: Three phases: Planathon (optional), Hackathon, Polaris Plus (invite only), $500,000 prize pool, 5 x major prizes of $35,000 each + prize multipliers, 15 x excellence awards of $8,000 each + prize multipliers, Minimum of $57,500 to distribute in Polaris Plus through quadratic voting, Incubation opportunities to the best teams, — Planathon - March 7th — April 5th Thomas Edison once said “Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.” Building on the fantastic response from Frontier Launchpad we are once again kicking off our launchpad with a Planathon. Before you get stuck into development, we want you to take some time to really flesh out your Polaris project. This includes evaluating the suitability of your ideas for blockchain, organizing a team, drafting a business plan, identifying delivery milestones, and so forth. We understand that what you develop during Polaris may only be just the beginning of something fantastic. The teams with the best plans will win “multipliers” between 1.1x and 1.5x that will be applied to any prizes won at the conclusion of the Hackathon phase. For example, if your team wins a 1.5x multiplier and you win a grand prize of $35,000, you will actually receive $52,500. Not only does crafting a project plan put you way ahead of your competition, it also increases your opportunity to earn! The average prize money won during the Frontier Launchpad was increased by over 42% for Planathon participants! Further, Neo is actively looking for promising projects to incubate, so this is also a chance to put us on notice and show that you mean business. Short written feedback will be provided to all submissions. Participants are not required to compete in the Planathon to make a submission in the Hackathon. However, teams that take part in the Planathon will also have the advantage of having their final submission judged against the background of their original plan. This may help judges evaluate the quality of your submission within the bigger picture of your project, and not just the features you were able to deliver within the competition time frame. Finally, even if you do not win a multiplier in the Planathon, getting feedback on your ideas could be critical to adjusting your project concepts so you’re better positioned to win a Hackathon prize. Multipliers will be awarded to teams on April 11th. — Hackathon - April 12th — May 9th Submissions for the Hackathon phase of the Polaris Launchpad open after the results of the Planathon have been announced. This is when you put your skills to the test and start building your project. If you need help getting started, visit Neo’s Developers Portal to find documentation, tutorials, and tooling options. If you haven’t already, please join the Neo Discord, where the Neo community (who is responsible for many of the tools you will be using) will be ready and waiting to provide support, advice, and encouragement. Submissions for the development phase close on May 9th. Our esteemed Polaris Launchpad judges will review all entries and announce the winners on May 30th. — Polaris Plus - June 8th — June 21st Following the conclusion of the Hackathon, a bonus Polaris Plus round will be held, in which the Neo community gets to decide the winners. The best Hackathon submissions, regardless of whether they received awards or not, will be invited to join us on Dorahacks for a round community voting. In this special event, GAS token holders will be able to use their funds to vote for their favorite projects. Neo has set aside a minimum of $57,500 to match these votes through quadratic means. Further, due to the structure of the Polaris Launchpad, the maximum prize pool that can be distributed to Hackathon participants is $442,500 — depending on each team’s performance during the Planathon. Any leftover prize money will be allocated to Polaris Plus, meaning that the total amount to be distributed may rise. This is a chance for the Neo community to have its say on which projects it would like to see grow within the Neo ecosystem. Polaris Plus participants will have one week between the conclusion of the Hackathon and the beginning of Polaris Plus to make any final adjustments to their projects before the quadratic voting round starts. Voting will close on June 21st. — Prizes - — Planathon - Multipliers of between 1.1x and 1.5x will be awarded to outstanding plans. Short written feedback will be provided for Planathon submissions. — Hackathon - Grand Prizes will be awarded to the best overall project in each of the following categories (five total): DeFi, Metaverse & NFT, DAO, Middleware Incorporating NeoFS/Oracle, General, Each Grand Prize winner will receive: US $35,000 in NEO tokens, Entry into the Neo EcoBoost program for incubation support., Entry into the Polaris Plus community voting round for additional prizes., Excellence Awards will be awarded to projects that have demonstrated excellent technical execution across any category and will receive (15 total): US $8,000 in NEO tokens, A one-hour consultation with NGD EcoGrowth to discuss your project and its goals., Entry into Polaris Plus community voting round for additional token bonus., Polaris Plus entry may be awarded to projects that did not qualify for a Grand Prize or Excellence Award. — Polaris Plus - Neo will match community voting via quadratic means up to a minimum of $57,500 in value.

Neo Polaris Launchpad Hackathon Community Kickoff: Recap of the March 7, 2022 Live-Streamed Event

Neo launched its developer-friendly Polaris Launchpad hackathon event in a virtual community kickoff session on March 7, 2022. Four guest speakers joined the kickoff to share details about the newest Neo hackathon and field questions from the audience. Check out this article for a recap of each leader’s session in the live-streamed kickoff. Da Hongfei, Founder of Neo Da Hongfei, founder of the Neo Foundation, opened the event with a walkthrough of the relationship between Neo and Web3. “Web3 is the new iteration of Web1 and Web2, it is an innovation of different layers of the internet,” he said. He explained that Web1 and Web2 represent innovation at the content and platform levels, while Web3 innovations target lower stacks at the level of protocols themselves. Based on these innovations at the protocol level, Web3 enables people to do a new range of things such as digital asset transactions, value transfers, and more. Thus, Web3 is much more than a simple replacement of Web1 and Web 2; it is an innovation that incorporates and builds upon both. Da described how Erik Zhang, who founded Neo along with Da, spent three years working alongside the rest of the core Neo developer team to build and launch Neo N3 on the MainNet. Da said that Neo N3 has continued to run smoothly in the several months since its launch. Thanks to its new capabilities, Neo N3 now offers developers the best infrastructure available for Web3 development, he said. He cited examples of the functionalities in Neo N3 such as multi-language support that enables developers to build smart contracts in the languages they already know best; one-block finality for DeFi usage; and a range of new modules and functionalities. Last year’s milestone events (including the large-scale migration of Neo Legacy to Neo N3 and the successful hosting of the Frontier Launchpad hackathon) provided a solid foundation to this year’s Polaris Hackathon, Da said. He highlighted the fact that Neo’s global communities have been key to supporting and contributing to all that Neo has achieved. He concluded by introducing the new Polaris Launchpad hackathon and extending a warm welcome to all developers who wish to participate. Steven Liu, Head of Development Steven Liu, Head of Development at the Neo Global Development (NGD), provided a briefing on the Neo N3 technology stack. He gave an overview of key features and functions. Key points included the evolution in Neo N3 compared to the capabilities of Neo Legacy and the interoperability offered by Neo N3. He described advanced functionalities such as NeoID for customization of attribute verification; NeoFS Network for decentralized storage; a native oracle service to enable new ways to create decentralized services; and Neo Name Service (NNS), a native name service to provide domain-mapping for numerous record types. Liu said that providing developers with this rich new set of capabilities supports Neo’s vision helping developers easily build on Neo N3–setting them up to succeed in the Polaris Launchpad hackathon. Catherine Lu, Business Development Manager Catherine Lu, Business Development Manager with Neo Global Development (NGD), described the financial support that NGD can provide for Polaris Launchpad winners. Lu also gave an overview of the types of projects that NGD seeks to incubate and see built on Neo N3. These include DeFi; on-chain information aggregators and explorers; Metaverse infrastructure; middleware components; an IDO/IGO platform; cross-chain apps; and other projects that are scalable, sustainable, and disruptive. Dean Jeffs, Founder of Neo News Today Dean Jeffs, the founder of Neo News Today, introduced the rules and specifics of the Polaris Launchpad event. The hackathon includes five tracks of competition: DeFi, NFT and Metaverse, Infrastructure, DAO, and General. Jeffs described the prize system for each competition track as well as for the different phases of the Polaris Launchpad: the Planathon, the Hackathon, and Polaris Plus. Jeffs also provided information on logistics and resources such as the registration website, the new New Developer Resources portal containing a comprehensive collection of tools and resources to help developers build on Neo N3, the Neo community Discord channel, and more. Jeffs concluded by telling the audience that Neo is a fun community and a fun platform to build on. He invited participants to jump in and have a great time competing in the Polaris Launchpad hackathon. Kickoff Call Conclusion and Call to Action At the end of the kickoff, the speakers addressed audience questions such as the details of the BSN collaborations, what makes Neo more competitive to build on compared to other blockchain platforms, the story behind the “Polaris” concept, and so on. The community kickoff call marked the official start of the Polaris Launchpad Planathon phase. The Neo leadership team invites talented developers worldwide to register today to create the next set of amazing projects that may become part of the Neo N3 ecosystem.

Neo Global Development (NGD) Welcomes Hacash.Diamonds to the EcoBoost Program

Neo Global Development (NGD) has accepted Hacash.Diamonds, a platform that provides professional collecting and trading services for a specialized type of NFT, as the first project to join the EcoBoost program in 2022. Within this program, Hacash.Diamonds will receive a range of support including grants and business incubation opportunities to promote the growth of a novel newer category of NFTs known as Proof of Work (PoW) NFTs. — About the EcoBoost program - Following successful completion of the Neo Early Adoption program last year, the NGD Eco Support organization will focus on fostering Neo ecosystem growth in 2022 through the larger-scale EcoBoost program. The EcoBoost program has allocated US $200 million to build a strong network of partners who can support Neo-based projects across the project lifecycle. — About Hacash.Diamonds - Hacash.Diamonds is a platform that provides professional collecting and trading services for a type of NFT known as HACD, or Hacash Diamonds HACDs are NFTs on the Hacash blockchain. The Hacash.Diamonds platform was founded in September 2021. The platform is committed to spreading the energy generative art represented by HACD and promoting HACD to become a mainstream store of value. Hacash.Diamonds team members are serial entrepreneurs who are experienced veterans of the American and Chinese blockchain worlds. Hacash.Diamonds has launched numerous products and services to date, such as a HACD browser, scarcity tools, decentralized exchanges, OTC guarantee services, NFT platform guarantee services, and NFT art exhibition services. — Hacash.Diamonds and Neo - As an NFT designed to store value, the PoW NFT is a relevantly new innovation that the blockchain industry has just begun to explore. By joining the Neo EcoBoost program, Hacash.Diamonds will pioneer a PoW NFT track on the Neo N3 blockchain, opening new possibilities to NEO and HACD holders alike. The Hacash.Diamonds team and the HACD community collectors have collaborated to launch a DAO called the 1H1B DAO. The DAO’s self-stated purpose is to push the floor price of HACD beyond that of Bitcoin. The DAO’s long-term plan is for the Hacash.Diamonds team to mint a 1H1B NFT that will be first minted on the Neo blockchain. With this efficient and mainstream-compliant approach, the 1H1B NFT will enable HACD to enter the Neo ecosystem. The 1H1B NFT will be an unreserved NFT that is fully transparent, membership-based, and multi-chain. Minting the 1H1B NFT on the Neo N3 blockchain will drive more on-chain activity to both the Neo and the HACD ecosystems. The 1H1B DAO will focus on incenting Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) to promote the 1H1B NFT. The intended approach will be to incent KOLs and their followers. As well as HACD collectors, to donate their HACD NFTs in order to mint 1H1B NFTs, resulting in a value transfer. “The 1H1B DAO will be the first project in the Neo ecosystem to focus on Proof of Work (PoW) NFTs,” said John Wang, Director of Ecosystem Growth at NGD. “We at Neo expect this partnership to provide HACD holders a chance to get acquainted with Neo and our premium Neoverse series NFTs as well.” Ken You, Founder of Hacash.Diamonds, likewise welcomes the new partnership. “I believe that with the cooperation with Neo, we can power the whole PoW NFT market and also help more people understand the value of HACD,” said You. “I also believe that HACD and the 1H1B DAO will play a very important role in the development of Neo’s NFT ecosystem.” Learn more Neo official website: Follow Neo on Twitter: @Neo_Blockchain Join the Neo community: Discord / Telegram Neo Global Development (NGD) Welcomes Hacash.Diamonds to the EcoBoost Program was originally published in Neo Smart Economy on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Technical Analysis: AVAX Enters Crypto Top 10, as NEO, THETA Also Gain

    AVAX climbed into the cryptocurrency top ten on Wednesday, following a three-day winning streak. Today's move comes as THETA and NEO were also higher, despite the current market uncertainty. Biggest gainers Although the majority of the crypto top 100 was underneath a red wave, there were a few exceptions, which managed to surf above this. These include NEO, and THETA which were up between 4-8% respectively, however, today's most impressive bull was AVAX. The price of avalanche (AVAX) rallied for a third consecutive session, with today's surge taking AVAX into the top ten crypto's by market capitalization. AVAX/USD rose to its highest level since January 12, hitting an intraday peak of $97.05 in the process. Although, as prices hit the recent resistance of $97.10, profit-takers began to liquidate their positions, which led to avalanche falling from its high. The profit-taking came as price strength found some resistance, with the 14-day RSI hitting its ceiling of 62, an area which has halted bullish momentum in the past. AVAX has mainly trended upwards in the last three weeks, and should this RSI level be broken, prices will likely surge past the $100 mark. Biggest losers Despite cryptocurrency markets being down 0.77% as of writing, there was no definitive bear of the day, as drops in price were marginal. Some notable mentions however have been zcash (ZEC), and CELO which both fell by as much as 4% on the day. However, Wednesday's biggest loser, relatively speaking, w... read More

NEO to Work With China's Blockchain Service Network on a Permissio...

    China continues its foray into the field of cryptocurrencies, albeit in a way like no other. The country launched its very own Blockchain Service Network (BSN) and is now teaming up with NEO to create a permissionless chain. According to a press release shared with CryptoPotato, the China-native NEO ecosystem will be creating a permissioned chain called Jiuquan. As per the report, this will be one of the ten blockchains that will form the Chinese blockchain-based ecosystem. It's worth noting that China has previously announced that it will have its own take on the NFT industry, although non-fungible tokens will be based on the Distributed Digital Certificate (DDC) standard). Speaking on the matter was Yifan He, CEO of Red Date Technology, as well as the Executive Director of the BSN Development Association, who said that: NFT/DDC technology is a digital certification and distributed database technology that can be applied in any scenario where digital proof is required. We anticipate billions of DDC's issued annually in China in the future. The biggest market for DDCs lies in certificate account management of all types. Per the release, NEO plans to integrate their domain name service as part of the new chain to function as DDCs and replace their hash strings with memorable sentences. Da Hongfei, the founder of NEO, commented: Neo is thriving to bolster our ecosystem under any circumstances in any regions. We are aiming for creating a solid foundation for the Next-Gen Int... read More
