Reviews for NEO

  • Ari Paul on NEO Co-founder and CIO of BlockTower Capital

    Wasn't NEO just shot in the knee by the Chinese government? Why would you want to own an ETH clone facing regulatory destruction?

  • Eric Wall on NEO Head of Research at Arcane Crypto

    A *Byzantine* *fault* *tolerant* consensus system's whole purpose is to be designed to handle ANY error or malicious behavior from a subset of the nodes and still reach consensus. In NEO, their system couldn't handle the most simple error of one node.

  • Jackson Palmer on NEO Group Product Manager at Adobe and Creator of Dogecoin

    Was just tipped off to the fact it costs 500 GAS (currently US$13k+) to deploy a single smart contract on the NEO network.

    Just a *tad* pricey. 🤔

  • Emin Gun Sirer on NEO Associate Professor of Computer Science at Cornell

    Hilarious. #6 cryptocurrency NEO is just a 7-node system uber the control of a single party, and the code isn't designed to handle even a single, benign failure.... Chances of NEO NOT being broken right now: 0%.

  • Jameson Lopp on NEO Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    And yet NEO still maintains an ~$8B valuation despite proof that it's not even fault tolerant to a single consensus node failing, much less tolerant to Byzantine actors... not sure if the market is irrational or just ignorant.

  • Kevin Pan on NEO Product Manager at Twitch

    Whenever an ICO is run on NEO, you will see complaint after complaint of the network being down or wallets not working. This is not characteristic of a blockchain capable of 1000 transactions per second.

  • Kyle Samani on NEO Managing Partner at Multicoin Capital

    I don't know that much about NEO, but I'm generally skeptical. I also generally don't care for this author but figured I'd share. NEO holders, beware.

  • Ryan Selkis on NEO Founder and CEO at Messari

    NEO's "Ethereum but China" pitch reminds me of Litecoin's "Bitcoin but Scrypt" pitch in 2013. A long, dark winter followed.

  • Ari Nazir on NEO Managing Partner at Neural Capital

    NEO is crashing so hard it's about to be rebranded as AntShares.
