Neo launched NeoNS, the first name service provider for the Neo N3 network, allowing users to create a digital identity in the form of an NFT-based domain name. NeoNS is designed to map machine-readable identifiers (i.e., N3 addresses, NeoFS shared links, other metadata) to more easily readable names such as NeoNewsToday.neo. When a NeoNS domain is registered, it is minted as an NFT on the Neo N3 network that the domain owner holds directly in their wallet. To acquire a NeoNS domain name, users must pay a cost varying between 2 and 200 GAS per year, determined by the number of characters in the name. Any Neo N3 compatible wallet can be used to register, browse, send, and receive NeoNS domains.
Neo Global Development launched the NeoPod initiative, designed to empower dedicated and knowledgeable community members to help expand the reach of the Neo blockchain. NGD believes NeoPod can positively impact participants by connecting them with other passionate members from across the globe, deepening their knowledge of the Neo ecosystem, enabling contributors to get their voices heard, and much more. Anyone interested is encouraged to apply for the initiative.
GhostMarket integrated support for Flamingo Finance, allowing users to purchase NFTs using NEP-17 tokens other than the currency requested on a listing. Before Flamingo’s integration, users were required to purchase an NFT using the NEP-17 token requested by the seller. Now, users can make offers using any supported token. The new implementation is designed to reduce user friction when buying, bidding, and placing offers on NFTs on the Neo N3 blockchain.

TTM is also hosting a Secret Colors Contest among its community, where the winning color will be the name of the final Legendary section of attributes in Moon Device NFTs. The contest concludes at 5:00 p.m. (UTC) on Oct. 4, and the reward has yet to be announced.

NGD Enterprise released the first preview of Neo WorkNet, a tool that makes it easy for developers to test their smart contracts on a private fork of MainNet or other public networks.
