  • Organizing several Hackathon events  
  • New Team Members

In February, NEO participated in the two hackathons; START Hack and HackCU. The winners of both Hackathons received 500 GAS as prize, which would allow them either to deploy their project on MainNet or to use it for the development of their projects.
In March, NEO also organized its first ever solo Hackathon in Taipei on 11th, in collaboration with Blockcamp.
Meanwhile, two new full-time members joined to NEO team; Miki Hayama and Sun FengDa.
Miki Hayama, who spent a decade in London and being in charge of overseas Marketing in the automobile industry, became the  NEO’s first full time team member out of China to cover Japan Operations including community building and all activities for the Japanese market.
Sun Fengda, who has been conducting research on interchain technologies for NEO Council since June 2017, has now officially joined NEO’s Shanghai team full-time as a senior researcher. Fengda, who holds a PhD degree in Microelectronics and Microsystems from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and a Master degree in Finance from HEC Lausanne, has worked with foreign exchange risk management in Geneva before joining NEO.
