It’s no secret that the EOS Lynx wallet has multi-chain ambitions. Today we’ll look at the state of the NEO blockchain.
Desktop Wallets: NEON and O2.
Neon is a GitHub release, 03 is on the AppStore.
In order to send Neo (fast) you need Gas. Both Neo and Gas can be bought on exchanges. You can send without Gas, but it is considerably slower.
Oddly enough, you can only send integer NEO amounts. Hence it is currently impossible to send somebody under $10 of NEO.
Neo is still significantly slower than EOS, although much faster than ETH
The inability to send fractional amounts of NEO has a major drawback for apps. This does not apply to other tokens, however, so the flow is:
buy app tokens → send tokens to app
There are considerably less apps on Neo than on EOS (or Tron)
Built in ShapeShift
The 03 Wallet has built in conversion from BTC. No KYC.
Token Sales in Wallets
At one point, Neon was doing token sales in wallets. It’s still there, but there are no active sales.
