Fast facts

  • NEO hit a daily high of US$25.88 on Thursday from US$20.87 on Tuesday, recovering from a low of US$16.25 on Jan. 24, according to CoinGecko.

  • Jiuquan Chain, powered by China-based Neo, will run as one of the 10 BSN open permissioned blockchains, as part of the BSN Decentralized Digital Certificates infrastructure, a non-crypto NFT network.

  • China has not banned NFTs as it did with crypto, but warnings directing from state-owned media organizations have diverted local businesses from the term “NFTs” to “digital collectibles.”

  • Neo’s token price bump since its jump into the local “digital collectibles” market comes as cryptocurrencies categorized under NFT coins dropped by 1% over the past 24 hours.
