What is Neo and NEO Staking?

Neo is a blockchain platform that aims to create a decentralized smart economy by leveraging blockchain technology and digital assets. It allows developers to build decentralized applications (dApps) using various programming languages and supports the creation, management, and transfer of digital assets, including tokens and smart contracts.

NEO staking refers to the process of holding and locking up NEO tokens to participate in the network's consensus mechanism in return for the earnings. The staking process contributes to the security and decentralization of the Neo blockchain.

Neo introduces a unique two token model. NEO is the major token owned by holders, and GAS is mainly used for paying operation and storage fees. GAS tokens are generated with every block and distributed to holders. For more information regarding this model, please visit

What Should You Know about NEO?

Neo has a unique network structure, where the staking process is represented by “voting a candidate”. NEO holders are eligible for voting. Voting consumes GAS as a transaction fee, and the NEOs will be locked up. NEO holders can earn GAS by simply holding NEO, but extra GAS can be earned by voting. GAS can be converted to NEO using exchanging tools such as Neo Compounder. For more information regarding this mechanism, please refer to
