Last November, we announced our strategic cross-chain expansion to the Neo blockchain via the Neo N3 Early Adoption Program. Through this program, we have been able to further contribute to the smart economy of tomorrow, and bring a wave of new users to benefit from our unique blend of DeFi, Collect-To-Earn & Play-To-Earn ecosystem.
Thus it is no surprise that we are thrilled to launch a dedicated Booster Partnership in co-operation with the Neo team to help celebrate their important milestone, and the future potential it will bring to the Neo ecosystem.
The Neo blockchain is known for being a pioneer in the early blockchain industry. It was originally launched in 2014 and, over the years, has experienced many upgrades and advancements. Most recently, Neo upgraded to version 3.0, also known as N3.
The N3 upgrade represents the biggest advancement in Neo’s history. It aims to bring the first all-in-one blockchain development experience to the industry, packed with powerful native features such as distributed storage, oracles and name services. In addition, Neo N3 also boasts a simpler and more modular architecture than its predecessors, along with an improved governance and economic model.
Neo N3 touts itself as the most feature-complete blockchain platform for building decentralized applications on the market. Neo enables developers to digitize and automate the management of assets through smart contracts while providing powerful native infrastructures such as decentralized storage, oracles, and a domain name service — creating a solid foundation for the Next-Gen Internet.
The Dual Token Model
Customarily speaking, most blockchains utilize a single token for their network. However, Neo was the first public blockchain to use a dual token model. This way, it separates the rights of governance from the rights of using the network, allowing its users to keep their governance tokens untouched. Respectively, these two tokens are known as $NEO and $GAS.
The $NEO token is used to participate in blockchain governance by voting for the NEO Committee. The Neo Committee is composed of members and consensus nodes that govern the Neo blockchain and provide specific services, such as maintaining the liveliness of the network, and adjusting critical blockchain parameters.
The $GAS token is the fuel token of the network, which is used to cover the cost of transaction fees and reward users of the blockchain as well as $NEO token holders.
Welcome to Neoverse
The Neo team, in celebration of their N3 Mainnet, is launching Neoverse — an NFT mint and collection event. The Neoverse N3 Collector’s Edition NFTs are not only invaluable collectibles, but also carry various VIP privileges within the Neo ecosystem itself.
The series comprises nine N3 Element NFT pieces, representing the nine major features of Neo N3. All nine pieces can be randomly found and minted from N3 Element Blind Boxes. There are a limited number of 27,000 Blind Boxes in total, including 3,000 of each of the nine different elements.
Beware, these are not an ordinary collection of NFTs! Once all nine unique pieces are collected, the owner can mint one of the special N3 Collector’s Edition NFTs, which are created by world-renowned NFT artists specifically for Neoverse. The new NFT is minted by burning all nine NFTs.
In order to collect the NFTs from the Blind Boxes, users need to download and install a wallet compatible with the Neo blockchain. All available wallets can be found here.
If you are interested in finding and combining other Neo NFTs, you can visit Ghostmarket, the Neo NFT marketplace.
As is customary to celebrate our new partnerships, we have created a brand new special edition Polymon. And a partnership of this significance cannot be left understated. Therefore, we would like you to welcome our latest addition to the Polymon family, the Neo Unigiraffe!
Starting January 19th (4:00 PM UTC) you will be able to discover this joyful neon green Unigiraffe in booster packs. The Neo Unigiraffe will be limited to only 35 pieces (plus 5 from the giveaway and contests over the week) as determined by our “Special Editions” Collector DAO vote which concluded earlier this week.
What more, each lucky puller of the Neo Unigiraffe will be airdropped three N3 Element Blind Boxes to get you started on your way to owning your very own N3 Collector’s Edition NFT!
Our Booster Partnership will be accompanied by a couple of social events, giving you the opportunity to snag yourself a beautiful Neo Unigiraffe Polymon, some NFT Element Blind Boxes, and a chance to learn more about the new Neo N3 protocol.
NFT Creation Contest
Will will kick off our events by hosting an NFT Creation Contest. Starting January 20th (4:00 PM UTC), you will have the chance to participate in our NFT contest on Twitter.
This time we have decided to create three categories. These categories are: an art creation contest, a high-quality meme, and an animation category — all representing our new partnership with Neo. We believe three categories will allow more people to participate in the event, and provide fairer chances for each individual to win all while celebrating Neo N3.
To be eligible to participate, you will need to mint your creation as an NFT on a secondary marketplace of your choice. Moreover, all participants need to submit their artwork and memes before January 25th (4:00 PM UTC) through the submission form on Twitter and by tagging and following @polychainmon and @Neo_Blockchain. After a careful selection process, we will announce three winners, one per category, on January 26th.
Good luck to all participants! We are looking forward to seeing your creativity!
Right after our NFT contest kick-off, we will be hosting a Twitter giveaway starting on January 21st (3:00 PM UTC). Make sure you follow our official Twitter account so you don’t miss this first chance to win a Neo Unigiraffe! Winners will be announced on January 24th.
