A series of announcements have been made by Neon Exchange (NEX) regarding its whitelist lottery, including changes to its eligibility requirements for particular countries.
According to a tweet sent from Neon Exchange’s account, Japan, South Korea and China can participate in the ICO, while US citizens are blocked from participating.
It has been determined by our legal team that Japan, South Korea and China can participate in our ICO! Sadly, the US is officially blocked from the ICO but we are grateful for all of your support!

Commenting on NEX’s efforts to allow US citiziens to participate, Tom Saunders, Neon Exchange and City of Zion co-founder had this to say:
NEX spared no expense or effort to allow US citizens to participate in our token sale. Unfortunately, it would have made the token non-tradable for 1 year, and even then it was still unclear which US states we'd be tradable in, among other issues.
