What is NEO and how to buy it on Changelly

NEO is a new promising cryptocurrency platform rebranded from Antshares. It is believed to be Chinese Ethereum by offering a cross-chain interoperability. Unlike Ethereum that runs only on Solidity, NEO is compatible with a range of programming languages, including Java and C-Sharp. Apart from that, NEO serves as a base for smart contracts and DApps (Decentralized Applications).
NEO has already gained prominence in China and now it’s available worldwide on Changelly.

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.

Changelly fees

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.

Exchange tips

Knowing about NEO’s features, you can foresee the best moment to buy it.
1. First off, pay attention to a coin’s amount gap worth for 1 NEO. Depending on a coin you want to exchange, the gap can be both large and small.

You can see the gap right on Changelly’s home page. Once you figure it out, you can opt for the most profitable value.

4. Divide large amounts into small transactions to prevent market pump. If you want to buy NEO for more than 10 BTC, it would be better if you divide the whole amount into several transactions of 1-2 BTC separated by a few hours.
