NNT Catch Up

Neo News Today hosted NeoResearch co-founder, Vitor Coelho, on the NNT podcast to discuss the NeoResearch team and its founding, its recently published MILP model for testing PBFT-inspired consensus mechanisms, upcoming Neo3 changes, and much more.

Coelho discussed his belief that Neo’s new governance mechanism can spur altruistic investment within the ecosystem. Neo’s model would enable NEO holders to vote for a committee of 21 governing members responsible for representing the community. The elected members will receive GAS rewards, which Coelho believes can be redistributed to fund smart contract deployment, development meetups, hackathons, or other incentives to use the Neo blockchain.
