Ethereum Vs NEO ( ETH Vs NEO )

Ethereum Vs Neo, side-by-side differences

Ethereum has been around for a long time, but a new contender is already on the field to compete with more features and use cases. This new contender, a Chinese counterpart, is called NEO, previously called AntShares.
We already covered side-by-side differences among few crypto-assets or crypto-currencies.
Side by side differences,

In this latest update, we are visiting key differences between two blockchain platforms, Ethereum and Neo, that enable DApp and smart-contracts equally well.

Sr. No.
Released in 2014
Released in 2017
Crypto symbol is ETH
Crypto symbol is NEO
ETH has only 1 token
NEO has 2 tokens, viz. NEO and GAS. NEO is used for the voting purpose on the network and generates GAS
ETH has a supply of 97,000,000 coins
NEO has a supply of 100,000,000 coins, out of which 65,000,000 are in circulation. GAS has a supply of 100,000,000.
Ethereum is blockchain platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference
Neo is blockchain and digital identify platform that digitizes assets, to automate the management of digital assets using smart contracts, and to realize a "smart economy" with a distributed network
Targeted towards increasingly new demands on smart contract platforms
Targeted towards a smart economy where every asset will be backed by digital identify validated out of blockchain
Ethereum can handle around 15 transactions per second
NEO handles 10,000 transactions per second
Ethereum uses Proof-of-Work mechanism
Neo uses dBFT (delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance) mechanism
Ethereum has hard forked into ethereum classic and few more are in pipeline
Neo cannot be hard forked
Ethereum has its own programming language called Solidity
Neo support many programming languages biz. C#, Java, Python, and Go are few.
Ethereum does not have any mechanism to protect itself from Quantum computing hacks.
NEO claims that their NeoQS anti-quantum cryptography mechanism can stand tall against quantum computing hacks
Ethereum can be divided into many decimals
Neo can be divided into whole numbers only. However GAS is divisible token as users pay fees using GAS on NEO network.
Ethereum can be mined.
Neo cannot be mined
Backed by ethereum foundation,
Neo is backed by neo foundation,
