NEO had an excellent run as of late earlier than the most recent Bitcoin drop slowed it down. It has managed to rise from $27 USD – the place it was on the flip of the month – to spectacular month-to-month excessive of $42,63 USD (reached on July 5th). It has fallen again to $36 USD and went up once more to $41 USD, earlier than beginning a sluggish bleed which in the end culminated with the larger correction that we noticed yesterday. This correction wasn’t as robust as those that the majority different prime altcoins skilled, as NEO dropped from $38,29 USD to $33,86. The coin is presently traded at $34.46 USD which is a drop of eight.12% over the past 24 hours. It presently has a market cap of $2,178,650,500 USD, making it the 12th most beneficial cryptocurrency on the planet.
Analysts see this as an excellent purchase zone for NEO, as currencies with strong fundamentals are inclined to bounce off of comparable downtrends in a powerful method. NEO is definitely one such coin, because it represents a Chinese language government-backed Ethereum competitor on the battlefield of sensible contract-focused platforms. Certainly one of NEO’s main victories is Ontology, a self-described “next-generation multi-chained public chain infrastructure platform” that’s presently the world’s 24th most beneficial cryptocurrency. This isn’t the place the excellent news cease for NEO, as Ontology has simply entered the second stage of its NEO based mostly airdrop.
The airdrop will embrace NEO holders receiving 10 million ONT tokens (value $37 million USD in the intervening time of writing), as per NEO blockchain snapshot that was taken on March 1st. This airdrop would be the second a part of the 20 million ONT token airdrop that was organized by the NEO Council. Like the primary airdrop, this one will once more dispense zero.1 ONT per NEO to holders. The airdrop was formally accomplished on Monday, July 9th, with numerous sources confirming its success.
Immediately after the airdrop, Ontology started its long-awaited token migration onto a local mainnet (that went dwell on July 1st). The platform will be a part of initiatives like Tron and EOS who additionally lately launched their very own mainnets and accomplished their transitions from the ERC 20 normal to their very own respective blockchains. Ontology began its life as NEO-based NEP-5 token however is now seeking to grow to be unbiased.
This bodes effectively for NEO, as Ontology succeeding as an unbiased platform confirms the validity of its roots. If the longer term occasions stay as optimistic as the present ones, each of those currencies could possibly be in search of a strong worth break-out.
