Neo Global Development released the bimonthly report for Sep. and Oct. 2021, which focused on technical development. NGD recently changed the structure of the monthly reports–instead of delivering one report every month detailing all activities within the Neo ecosystem, each month will alternate between focusing on general progress and on development. The current report covers Neo core protocol updates, infrastructure and tool development across the ecosystem, and major project milestones.
NGD accepted iMe Smart Platform into the N3 Early Adoption Program. The iMe application is a messaging platform powered by the Telegram API, incorporating blockchain-enabled features like wallets and DeFi. In the announcement, the iMe team noted it was drawn to Neo’s community and seeks to engage and interact with its global audience. Looking forward, iMe plans to involve the community in farming and staking campaigns, contests, and other activities. The iMe app is available for iOS and Android.
Polychain Monsters co-founders Leif Leiser and Lennart Brandt joined NGD’s AMA series, Neo Live, on Thursday, Nov. 25. Polychain Monsters is a cross-blockchain, play-to-earn game based on NFT collectibles that also incorporates DeFi elements. In the AMA, Leiser and Brandt discussed new gaming revenue models, the mechanics of the PMON token, the Neo N3 ecosystem’s focus on interoperability, how the feature-rich N3 platform simplifies onboarding new hires, upcoming NFT and game launches, and collaborating with other blockchain projects.
Binance added support for N3 NEO and GAS to its custodial exchange. Users can now deposit NEO and GAS from the Neo N3 network. NEO/BUSD, NEO/USDT, NEO/BNB, NEO/BTC, NEO/ETH, NEO/TRY, NEO/USDC, and GAS/BTC markets are currently open for trading. Alongside N3, Binance intends to continue supporting the deposit and withdrawals of NEO on the Legacy network.
