NEO is a smart economy open network, focused on digitalizing assets using blockchain technology. The Shanghai-based blockchain platform is one of the several DLT projects to emerge from the blockchain boom in East Asia in the last few years.
The newly unveiled funding will help the platform to focus on activating seed projects, improving support for DApps, and institutional collaboration. The EcoBoost fund will also be available for projects at different phases of their life cycle, right from inception, until maturity. The program will facilitate technical training, collaborations, community enhancement, joint marketing efforts, and much more.
Emphasising on the importance of ecosystem development, NEO co-founder Da Hongfei said,
Without an ecosystem – blockchain – you can say it’s useless. It’s just a bunch of technology.
Development of ecosystems is extremely important for sustainable growth of any blockchain project. Advance infrastructure, sophisticated technical support and improved facilities encourage developers to develop more and more DApps for the platform, which will ultimately increase the daily trading volumes of the blockchain. Increased trading volumes generally translate to better revenue, which provides strength to the native tokens.
