We at Neo could not be more pleased to announce our upcoming participation in our first conference stop of the year: The 2023 Hong Kong Web3 Festival! We have signed on as a platinum-level sponsor for this inaugural event, which is co-hosted by Wanxiang Blockchain Lab and HashKey Group and organized by W3ME. “Resilience meets innovation” is the theme of Neo’s conference participation this year. You’re invited to join us at the Web3 Festival to see why.

Bridge the Physical and Digital Worlds with Neo

Neo’s exclusive booth in the exhibit hall will debut a Neo-themed activation on a gashapon machine–a type of vending machine that’s popular in Japan and beyond. Gachapon machines are beloved for the small toys or trinkets that they dispense. These toys, usually part of larger collections, attract users who try to collect them all.

We have prepared something special for you with Neo’s gashapon machine. We’ll make the world of Web3 real (and fun!) for everyone who tries their luck here. You’ll be able to quickly get set up with a Neo wallet address as your ticket to a first-hand experience with smart contract interaction on the blockchain. As you interact with the blockchain through the Neo gashapon machine, you’ll play for a chance to win any of many prizes sponsored by Neo ecosystem projects and communities.

Thank you to our generous prize sponsors

Resilience, meet innovation

Throughout our history, Neo has embodied resilience as a proven and trusted blockchain platform that stands the test of time. Then, with the launch of Neo N3 in 2021, we introduced a whole new level of innovation to the Neo blockchain platform and ecosystem. Today, we continue to build on the combination of our solid foundation and our new infusion of innovation. Neo provides the industry’s best and most comprehensive decentralized blockchain technology, making it easy for developers and businesses to establish and grow their own projects on Neo.

Our infrastructure brings much to the table for both developers and businesses:

  • Neo continuously optimizes the functionality and efficiency of the Neo N3 protocol
  • Neo delivers improved decentralized storage services
  • NeoBurger provides steady node services with stable earnings
  • NeoNS brings the world of decentralized identity to Neo
  • This year, NeoChat, an end-to-end encrypted communication tool, brought users a native Web3 social communication experience to Neo users

We are proud of all that Neo and those in our ecosystem have achieved. But Neo’s growth and achievements to date are just the beginning. This year, we will further advance our momentum as we continue to create new opportunities for developers and businesses to make their visions real on the Neo platform. Join us in Hong Kong this month to explore the possibilities.
