Last week we launched Neo N3 RC4, which we are hopeful will pass all our stability tests and graduate to become the Neo N3 Formal TestNet. Once we have achieved this milestone, we will begin rolling out the Neo N3 MainNet, along with migration and governance.

While we are not yet ready to finalize dates, we can outline how we intend to move from Neo Legacy to Neo N3. We can also reveal some of the migration options that will be available at a high level.

Essentially, the rollout will occur in three phases: TestNet, MainNet Setup, and Mass Migration…

2020 was the year DeFi exploded. A plethora of projects rapidly developed and took off on the Ethereum network — however, Ethereum’s high GAS fees and performance ceiling rapidly resulted in a strong spillover effect. At the same time, Binance Smart Chain — an Ethereum compatible public chain — quickly captured a large number of projects thanks to its low GAS fees and easily accessible development environment. As an Ethereum compatible chain, BSC seemed to offer the best of both worlds.

But does this solution really represent the pinnacle of a public chain’s potential? From our perspective, no. This approach…
