NEO

We think NEO will hit 100-125USD soon. BE PREPARED! 

Written by Martin, www.thenewmarkets.com

Why do we think this project is great in a nutshell?
NEO can be seen as the Chinese Ethereum and makes it possible for developers around the world to start their own smartcontracts projects on the NEO blockchain. NEO smartcontracts and Dapps can be written and compiled in C# and Java what removes all boundaries for devs around the globe. We believe NEO will be huge. 

PART A: REAL LIFE VALUE OF PROJECT (90/100)
Incubators are the place-to-be if you are a tech start-up. In a very simplified way NEO is like an incubator, but then functioning as a host for Blockchain, Smartcontract and Dapp Projects. To give you and idea, NEO and ETH are basically the same but their are a lot of technical differences (if you like to know more about that please read: https://coinsutra.com/neo-vs-ethereum-differences/).
People often call NEO the ''Chinese Ethereum'', because it's a China based company. NEO has real life value because it can be the foundation of a lot of blockchain, smartcontract and Dapp projects around the world.  NEO's goal is to create a smart economy where trust is established between parties using digital identities. 

In one sentence: NEO is the Chinese platform to host Blockchain- Smartcontract projects and Dapp Projects. 

PART B: DISRUPTIVENESS OF PROJECT  (95/100)
NEO's moonshot is to create a smart economy via a businessmodel that aims to be the the host of blockchain (better known as a extremely disruptive technique) projects, this is pretty damn disruptive. NEO makes it very easy for (Chinese) developers to create blockchain projects that will disrupt the current economy. 

NEO is also disruptive within the blockchain playfield: 
- NEO can be coded in C# and Java, in the future Python and Go will be added. This makes it easy for devs around the world to start building their own blockchain project on the NEO platform. 
- NEO can handle 10.000 transactions per second what makes NEO a fast platform
- NEO is Quantum computer-proof what means that is not hackable by Quantum computers

The NEO dev competition is a competition where devs around the world come together and work on projects with a prize pool of almost 500K USD dollars. You probably think, so what? But the dev competition is really a big thing if you look at marketing opportunities and the number of devs that are involved. At this moment the effect on the price is negligible, but what do you think will happen as the initiated projects will take off? ALREADY 245 SIGN-UPS!!!!

PART C: TEAM AND ADVISORY BOARD (90/100)
NEO is full-time working on their project with more than 20 people, what is pretty much. The team is highly capable and their CEO Da Hongfei has a lot of experience with his tech-company OnChain, that is also affiliated with the government. The second man of NEO, Tony Tao, is founder of Nestfund. 

PART D: STRENGTH AGAINST COMPETITORS (80/100)
NEO's biggest competitor is Ethereum, the second biggest cryptocurrency project in the world. NEO has some very big (technical) advantages, but also disadvantages against Ethereum. In our opinion NEO and Ethereum is like MacOS and Microsoft. 

Advantages
- China always copies Western companies because they like to protect their economy. Therefore it's very plausible that NEO will be the only ICO platform in China (and that gives NEO a huge market). There are a lot of rumors about this, but still the government did not confirmed it. 
- NEO produces NeoGAS (GAS) that can be seen as cryptofuel for the NEO blockchain, if you hold NEO you get a amount of NeoGAS per year as dividend
- NEO uses C#, Java and soon Python and Go as coding language while ETH is only using their own language Solidity (devs need to learn this before they can start coding) 
- NEO can handle 10.000 transactions per second, Ethereum only 15 per second
- NEO is Quantum computer-proof
- NEO likes to create a smart economy, this is a very ambitious goal that goes further than having the best technique

Disadvantages
- NEO is China based so their isn't a lot of information for the English-reading audience, while Ethereum is already a global enterprise  
- Ethereum has a very big international audience and is well known (also by people who don't know cryptos) 
- Ethereum already has a lot of projects using their platform

PART E: WHAT IS IN THE CHARTS? (90/100

Marketcap after introduction: 7.686.150 USD (0,153 per NEO/ANS)
Current market cap (9th of december 2017): around 2.500.000.000 USD
Volatility level: high
Stage: NEO is one of the sleeping giants

First of all NEO is very volatile so, if you can trade, it's a winner for day traders. Second of all NEO reacts on every little rumor, so if you hold NEO and some rumor comes around the corner the price most probably will increase massively. The biggest thing that can happen for NEO is a collaboration with the Chinese government. But also when that will not happen, NEO will be huge in 2018. 

Price at moment of writing 
36USD

Risk Indicator 
Medium

Red Pulse is a project on the NEO platform 

 1) The first massive price increase was because of the rebranding from ANS to NEO 2) The second increase in price was because people thought that the Chinese government was going to announce NEO as their exclusive ICO platform  3) The third increase was because one of NEO's developers posted on Twitter that something big was going to be announced in a few days, after three days NEO announced their dev competition   As you can see the NEO price reacts on every little bit of rumor because people know that NEO will be huge and get in based on FOMO.

OVERALL: (89/100) 

WHAT YOUR INVESTMENT CAN MAKE YOU

POSSIBLE PROFIT: High if NEO can profit from good news
POSSIBLE MARKET CAP: at least 25.000.000.000 USD (10 times current value)
RISKLOW-MEDIUM

NEO IS OUR ALL-TIME FAVOURITE AND A MUST-HAVE IN EVERY PORTFOLIO! 

SHORT TERM: YES, IF YOU KNOW HOW TO TRADE. NEO IS VERY VOLATILE AND THEREFORE IDEAL FOR DAY-TRADING
MID TERM: YES, BUY UP TO 40USD AND HOLD FOR A WHILE
LONG TERM: YES, BUY UP TO 50USD AND HOLD FOR AT LEAST HALF A YEAR WE THINK NEO WILL HIT 100-125USD EARLY 2018.
