NEO Token

NEO token is one of the two native tokens of the , a platform for building (dApps). NEO tokens allow holders to participate in Neo network management, including network parameter modification and voting for consensus nodes. [1][2]


NEO token has a total supply of 100 million tokens. During the (ICO) which took place between August 8 to 7th September 2016, 50% of the tokens were sold and $4.65 million was raised. [3][11]

The remaining 50 million tokens were distributed to the NEO Council — 10% was allocated to motivate members of the Neo Council and developers, 10% to motivate developers in the Neo ecosystem, 15% to cross-invest in other blockchain projects, and 15% retained for contingency. [3][4][5]



Neo holders can exercise management authority, such as choosing consensus nodes, changing the consensus approach, changing the pricing model, etc. by constructing voting transactions on the Neo network. This is accomplished through the Neo Committee — a group of nodes and members with authority over the metrics determining blockchain performance. [6][7]

The NEO token also allows its holders to claim the associated GAS token depending on the quantity of NEO owned without . [6][7]

The GAS utility token is needed to deploy , pay network fees on the Neo blockchain, and make purchases inside (dApps) created on the blockchain. Additionally, the Neo Committee compensates users with GAS tokens based on how many votes they cast.[5] [7]

Neo Legacy to Neo N3 Migration

In August 2021, the Neo blockchain was upgraded from Neo Legacy to version 3.0 known as N3. During this phase, all holders of NEO and GAS tokens were urged to migrate their tokens from the Neo Legacy network to the Neo N3 network. [8]

The migration process generally involved creating a new address on the Neo N3 blockchain and sending the Neo Legacy tokens to a migration contract. The tokens were migrated at a 1:1 ratio, meaning that each NEO or GAS token on the Neo Legacy blockchain was transferred as one NEO or GAS token on the Neo N3 blockchain.
