Why is it so appealing?
NEO has skyrocketed to the top ten of coin market capitalization. Lots of media call NEO ‘The biggest crypto in the world’. The very reason of NEO’s prominence is that the platform uses totally different approach to blockchain by combining it with the traditional financial system. Unlike a regular cryptocurrency platform, NEO actually doesn’t have coins that fuel the network. It is rather acting like the company’s shares. To maintain the network, NEO uses fiat money and bases on the classic trading system. NEO’s community is convinced that their approach will transform all the financial procedures across the world by empowering them with smart contract technology.
NEO is an indivisible cryptocurrency. It means that you may trade any amount of NEO including decimal figures, but the amount to withdraw always should represent a whole number rounded down. For example, you want to buy NEO for Bitcoin on Changelly. According to your calculations, you should receive, say, 7.9 NEO. In fact, you will receive only 7, since it’s impossible to withdraw 7.9 NEO from traders. This peculiarity is important to know in order to prevent unfavorable exchange.
As you know, Changelly charges 0.5% fee of the exchanged amount. However, due to the coin’s indivisibility and rounded down figures, Changelly doesn’t take any commission fee for transactions with NEO. However, it’s important to mention that the rate still remains volatile, and the final rate may differ. The more you put off exchanging, the higher the risk to get another amount. We recommend to exchange a coin for NEO once a transaction is created.
