In the event, panelists discussed Neo’s core infrastructure suite including the NeoFS distributed storage network, Neo’s native oracle network, digital identity, and their use cases.
Neo and CoinTelegraph China co-hosted a Polaris Launchpad panel Advancing the Dream of Interoperability, which focused on cross-chain technology and discussed Neo’s ongoing hackathon. The panelists included representatives from NGD, BSN, and Poly Network.
NGD announced two more upcoming Polaris Launchpad panel discussions.

The BigONE custodial exchange launched a liquidity mining campaign for the GAS/USDT pool, concluding on March 31, 2022. Liquidity mining is a mechanism where individuals deposit their digital assets to an exchange in return for rewards. Exchange users who participate in the program will receive 50% of transaction fees as rewards and share from a pool of 2,000 USDT.
NGD announced it is giving away three digital passes to attend the Paris Blockchain Week Summit, taking place April 13 and 14. The PBWS digital pass recipients will be granted access to the physical conference and the Paris NFT Day digital platform.
NNT Catch Up
NGD Enterprise’s head of development Harry Pierson recently documented a significant enhancement to the Neo Blockchain Toolkit’s Smart Contract Debugger. Now available in a preview release, the latest update overhauls the debugger’s contract storage viewer to display stored keys and values in a much more developer-friendly manner. NGD Enterprise has also released an overview of the Storage Schema to break down the latest changes.
Neo News Today released a Neo N3 exchange support update for Q1 2022. As of March 2022, nearly a dozen exchanges offer trading for Neo N3 tokens, with more still on the way. NNT also reached out to NGD to query the migration status of other large exchanges currently trading Legacy NEO. The EcoGrowth team indicated that they are in communication with exchanges such as Bittrex, Bitfinex, and Kucoin, and are providing support where needed. Ultimately, however, the listing of N3 NEO is in each exchange’s hands, and NGD cannot offer timelines.
COZ airdropped Puppets NFTs and unveiled PROPS, a new initiative designed to enhance the Neo N3 contract developer experience and help bootstrap applications in the ecosystem. PROPS is the first major step towards on-chain developer infrastructure for N3. Over time and with community assistance, COZ envisions the evolution of a rich smart contract package ecosystem for Neo N3. The initial PROPS launch features four utility contracts: Collection, Dice, Generator, and Puppet, with plans to add new on-chain tools for developers over time.
All Neo users voting for consensus nodes on N3 received an airdrop of one Puppet token, a general-purpose NFT. Puppets were designed with the metaverse in mind but no initial use case. An additional Puppet was airdropped to COZ, AxLabs, Neo SPCC, and NNT voters, with a total number of 4,861 Puppets distributed.
Neo SPCC released NeoGo v0.98.2, its final iteration before the upcoming Neo v3.2 release. The update features a new lightweight mode, which limits the amount of block data stored by a node, a generator for Go contract bindings that uses contract manifest files, and full support for Windows.
COZ updated the Dora blockchain explorer to v0.1.0, which included a redesigned address information page with a cleaner look, and a new tab to display NFT lists.
March 21, Poly Network announced the multi-chain interoperability protocol had surpassed US $564 million in bridged total value locked and that cross-chain volume had surpassed $15.9 billion. Neo is the second-ranked chain by TVL, with approximately $102.47 million.
March 22, TOTHEMOON announced it will conduct its first airdrop of item NFTs in the New Moon Phase of Cycle 1 to wallets that hold Character type NFTs. The snapshot for the item NFTs will take place at 7:00 p.m. (UTC) on Monday, March 28, 2022, and the airdrop will take place shortly after.
March 23, Mega Oasis announced the upcoming launch of the NFT marketplace’s second series, MetaPanacea II.

The auction begins at 11:00 a.m. (UTC) on March 30 and will only be live for 24 hours.
March 23, Flamingo launched two new single-click features on the DeFi platform, PoolSwap and ReStake. The two features simplify the process of moving assets between liquidity pools and contributing rewards back into liquidity pools. PoolSwap removes the complexity of moving liquidity from one FLP to another. Through the ReStake function, users can convert their FLM rewards from a liquidity pool and contribute to that same LP.
March 23, TOTHEMOON announced the next release of Character type NFTs for the Waxing Crescent phase of Cycle 1. This “Moon Phase” will witness the release of 50 new Cryptonauts, four new Moon Trainers, four new Moon Babies, and the second Generation Moon Creatures.
March 24, Flamingo launched its new Reverse Pool liquidity pools and listed CANDY and NUDES NEP-17 tokens. Reverse Pools allow users to stake FLM and “x” token to a pool and, in return, receive “x” token as a reward instead of FLM. The first two reverse pools to launch on Flamingo are FRP-FLM-NUDES and FRP-FLM-CANDY.
March 24, GhostMarket launched its artist verification process, which allows artists to receive Blue Checks for verifying the authenticity and artwork and collections. Applications will be open from the 1st of each month through 5:00 p.m. (UTC) on the 15th of the month.
March 26, Poly Network temporarily suspended its bridging services to Neo N3 due to instability in the N3 CCM contract. The contract was updated, and the service was reinstated in less than 24 hours.
March 27, Nudes Token announced an upcoming airdrop of NEP-17 NUDES tokens to Save The Flamingos and Neoverse N-, E-, and O- series NFTs. Fifty billion NUDES tokens will be distributed for each to Save The Flamingos and N-series NFT, 25 billion NUDES to each E-series NFT, and 5 billion NUDES to each O-series NFT. A snapshot of wallets holding Save the Flamingos and Neoverse NFTs will be taken at 9:00 a.m. (UTC) on April 11, 2022.
