Picking up the pieces of Q1's correction, Ethereum has recovered to 55% of its all-time-high, where NEO squares up a whisker above 40%.What is NEO?
NEO's semi-centralized DBFT blockchain reflects this, with the NEO Council holding nearly 50% of tokens "To foster the ecosystem" - a common criticism by advocates of true decentralization.
The creation of serial blockchain founders Erik Zhang and Da Hongfei, NEO is a community-funded effort that is separate from Hongfei's OnChain - a private blockchain company collaborating with the Chinese government and large enterprises.
