NEO has recently launched the NEO3 Preview1 on a particular pilot testing network with the aim of familiarizing its developer communities to main NEO3 updates.
NEO Global Development (NGD) made known the release of NEO3 Preview1 build in a Sept. 17 press release.
Although official NEO3 release is expected next year, the developer communities can get a couple of insights into some major updates and architectural changes with Preview1 build available.
NEO Founder Erik Zhang responded as follows concerning the release:
“Through the NEO3 Preview1 pilot, we’ve advanced forwards towards our goal of delivering large-scale commercial applications — something which I believe is of critical importance for achieving a smart economy as well as the next-gen Internet. Moving forward, we aim to accelerate NEO3’s development further to overcome current roadblocks and deliver unmatched stability, throughput, and an optimized developer experience.”
Partnership with Ontology
In July Ontology and NEO — the two Chinese blockchain platforms — reportedly partnered to form an interoperable protocol that would spur development of the next-generation Internet.
Based on a certain interoperability protocol, the two blockchain companies want to develop an open and transparent global cross-chain platform that employs the strengths of both companies.
