Next, we started investigating NEO. NEO is not based on Proof of Work (PoW), which means you don’t have to mine. Mining is expensive and tedious. NEO’s consensus protocol is based upon the Default Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm (dBFT), which is a form of Proof of Stake. NEO also does not require a custom programming language. Smart Contracts can be written in C# in Microsoft Visual Studio or Python.
We liked NEO so much that we built a new way to interface with the NEO Blockchain, NEO Flux. Prior to NEO Flux, you had to leverage NEO Python, which requires you to pull down the entire NEO Blockchain on test or production, which can be painful and time consuming.
Recently, we’ve also been doing a lot of exchange work for cryptocurrencies. The exchanges will make use of open source versions of Peatio and BitExchange. These exchanges require in depth knowledge of Bitcoin Core, geth, NEO, etc.
We’ve also delivered our first cryptocurrency wallet on Android for the NEO Blockchain.
