If you have already invested in the popular cryptocurrency NEO, or you are planning to buy NEO and you want to find out what are some of the best wallets for NEO then you are at the right place.

I myself hold NEO and I have asked the exact same question which led to me various post and comments about what NEO wallets to pick. And I thought I could take my research and compile it to a useful post about the best Neo wallets.

Ever since Neo launched rebranded from Antshares in the middle of 2017 it saw a cometic rise to the surface and being branded as one of the most exciting blockchains and cryptocurrencies to invest in after Ethereum.

Since then the entire cryptocurrency market had a big dip and so did Neo like the rest. Now there is regained interest in cryptocurrencies again and so in Neo.

10 of my favourite NEO wallets list

1 ) Ledger Nano X

Ledger Nano X

If you want to use a secure hardware wallet like the Ledger wallets then you can use it together with the NEON wallet. This will help you secure your cryptocurrencies and still claim NEO/GAS.

The Ledger Nano X is the top of the pack of hardware wallets together with Trezor Model T. But the latter lacks support for Neo at this point in time.

So if you are looking for the most secure and best wallets for NEO then I can say hands down there is no better alternative than the Ledger wallets.

It comes with Bluetooth, additional storage space, and hardware upgrades from the previous excellent model the Nano S.

To receive GAS and use your Ledger device with NEO (same for Ledger Nano X and S) you will need to download NEON wallet also. This is how it works together.

You basically need to install the Neo app on your ledger device in the Ledger Live app, (follow the guide here for more information) and then download the NEON wallet to your desktop.

When you have downloaded the NEON wallet you can simply connect using your Ledger device to access your cryptocurrencies and to send/receive new Neo blockchain tokens.

  • Note that NEO/GAS and all other Neo blockchain tokens are available on the NEON wallet

2 ) Ledger Nano S (hardware)

Ledger Nano S device

The second option for hardware wallet that you can use with Neo is the slightly cheaper and original model from Ledger, and it is the Ledger Nano S.

Like with the Ledger Nano X you need to use your device together with the NEON wallet to make use of your wallet fully and claim your GAS.

It is one I’ve used together with Nano X for a long time and it is extremely good wallet.

The main differences between choosing the Ledger Nano X over the S model is if you want to use mobile device (need Bluetooth) or if you want to use more than 4-5 apps on your device at the same time.

Meaning if you have 5 separate blockchain apps installed. Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens don’t need more than one app.

But otherwise I would say that the Ledger Nano S does as good of a job to secure your Neo holdings which is the most important part of the equation.

3 ) NEON wallet (desktop)

NEON wallet desktop app

Here is the NEON wallet. I have already mentioned it above in conjunction with my recommendation to use the Ledger devices.

But on its own NEON wallet is a fine and one of the best NEO wallets around. It is an open-source wallet developed by the team City of Zion a core NEO development group and node runner.

So these guys are heavily focused on the development and flourishment of Neo blockchain.

The wallet itself is slick and with all the features wanted from a modern cryptocurrency wallet.

Here you can do anything from a modern cryptocurrency wallet and claim your GAS earned from your Neo holdings.

4 ) Neo GUI (desktop)

Neo GUI wallet

This is a full-node wallet alternative for Neo. That means you download the full Neo blockchain and can participate by running your own node on the Neo blockchain.

This gives you full control and access to the entire blockchain and all transactions. Without relying on another 3rd party node or server.

This is the right Neo wallet for the ones with technical experience and an interest in participating fully as a Neo user. Either as a node runner or just by getting full access to the blockchain and not through any other party.

5 ) Neo CLI (desktop)

Neo CLI wallet

Neo CLI This is another full-node wallet for Neo.

And this is a CLI (Comman Line client). This can provide access to APIs for developers to build on, make use of for Neo-based features and widgets.

This wallet is therefore not really something I can recommend for everyday Neo holders.

Rather download the GUI alternative if you want a Neo full-node wallet alternative.

6 ) O3 (mobile wallet and desktop wallet)

O3 mobile wallet and desktop wallet

O3 is a very popular Neo mobile wallet. It comes available for desktop too. It is a Neo-friendly or focused cryptocurrency wallet.

Here you can make use of everything you need from a quality mobile wallet in a lightweight format.

You can also buy more Neo or other cryptocurrencies directly from the wallet, plus the option to trade with Swithneo’s DEX inside the wallet.

Additionally you can get important updates or news concerning Neo directly in the app.

Another good thing is that this is an open-source project, so the code is available for anyone to inspect.

And overall O3 have worked hard to create a secure and development-friendly wallet that will last for a long time into the future.

7 ) Atomic wallet (multi-currency + multi-device wallet)

Atomic wallet

I wanted to include a multi-currency and multi-device Neo wallet alternative. And I’ve choose to include Atomic wallet.

With Atomic wallet you can access your Neos via a desktop wallet or mobile wallet. And it is available for most OS. Android, iOS, Windows. macOS and Linux.

With the ATomic wallet you can store your Neos on the blockchain and access them together with all your other cryptocurrencies. They have support for most cryptocurrencies. All the major blockchains and their tokens.

Check out the full list of compatible assets here

Atomic wallet device and OS support

8 ) Neo Tracker (web wallet)

Neo Tracker a web wallet

This is a Neo web wallet version. But Neo Tracker is not only a web wallet but also a blockchain tracker for Neo.

Here you can track transactions, wallets, Neo holders, node runners and other assets on the Neo blockchain.

The web wallet can be created and opened with a Keystore file. Private keys and encrypted private keys.

I recommend that you never enter your private keys in online environments.

Meaning on websites or apps if possible.

So consider using a secure hardware wallet where the private keys never leave your device. Or use applications and softwares in an offline capacity.

9 ) Neo Wallet (web wallet)

Neo Wallet a web wallet

This is another web wallet version that you could use. You can create your own new Neo wallet here, or import an already existing wallet with wallet key file or your private keys.

With this web wallet you get the basic package of sending, receiving tokens, claiming GAS, etc.

As with any Neo wallet created make sure you keep a safe backup of your private keys. With those you can then again restore and access your wallet from additional sites.

10 ) Ansy (Neo paper wallet)

Ansy Neo paper wallet

Ansy is a paper wallet generator site.

Here you can can generate a new Neo paper wallet by creating a whole new wallet, or by importing your private keys.

You will then get a bunch of QR codes and keys that you can print out and store as an actual paper wallet.

For those interested in securing their Neo tokens and not interacting with them often then a Neo paper wallet could be an excellent choice. This will help to protect your funds from hackers and thieves since they are not stored in an online capacity.

Obviously you need to keep your paper copies somewhere safe and where they won’t get lost or stolen.

How to pick a good wallet for NEO

In order for me to share a list of Neo wallets that is helpful and for you to decide which one to go for we need to consider a couple of main things.

  1. NEO and GAS – which wallets generate GAS?
  2. Which wallets are legit and the most secure?
  3. What wallet options are there (mobile, web, hardware, etc)?

If you didn’t know about GAS then I think it’s important that you know realise that on the Neo blockchain there are two main native cryptocurrencies. One is NEO and the other one is called GAS.

And you generate GAS by holding NEO in a staking compatible wallet. This is important to remember that not all wallets can generate GAS for you.

So it’s important to find one that does.

Other important aspects when deciding which wallet to pick is to find one that is secure and not a scam. So I am only sharing wallets here that I would use for my NEOs.

Where to buy NEO

If you haven’t bought NEO yet and you wanted some suggestion for safe exchanges to use then I would recommend these:

  1. Binance
  2. OKEx

Conclusion – Best Neo wallet?

Neo smart economy logo

So how do you pick the best Neo wallet to use? It should depend on what’s important to you?

Would you very much need to check and transact with your NEO, GAS and other tokens daily? Then a mobile wallet makes sense.

Is security and ease of mind more important? Then I would definitely recommend investing in a safe Ledger wallet for Neo!

Or are you planning to make use or get involved more closely with the Neo blockchain then a full-node alternative for Neo would be the right choice.

So go with the wallet that fits your need. But don’t forget to think about security. Whether that being buying a hardware wallet or keeping safe backups of your private keys.

SafeEarth Donates $100,000 to TheOceanCleanUp Kicking Off Blockchain Eco Project

Republished by Plato

Published

on

SafeEarth

Bitcoin Press ReleaseBlockchain eco project SafeEarth has donated over $100,000 to TheOceanCleanUp charity with more donations planned for other global charities. 

 

16th April, 2021, London, UK SafeEarth, a blockchain eco project, has donated over $100,000 to community selected charity TheOceanCleanUp. The donated funds will help towards the removal of plastic waste from the planet. This generous donation represents the first act of SafeEarth’s continuing initiative to help charities across the globe. 

 

The money was raised from SAFEEARTH token transaction fees. From each token transaction a portion of the fees will continue to be used for further donations to charities that focus on green initiatives as SafeEarth looks to effect a lasting and positive change on the planet.

 

The Ocean Cleanup Head of IT Steven Bink offered his thanks to Safe Earth on Twitter, stating: 

 

Dear SafeEarth community. On behalf of the entire crew at The Ocean Cleanup, I would like to thank you for this very generous donation. We are also honored that you chose The Ocean Cleanup to be the first charity to receive this gift from @SafeEarthETH”

 

Safe Earth & Earth Fund

Deforestation, pollution, global warming and many other factors have had an adverse effect on the environment for decades. As the world shifts more towards renewables and eco-friendly alternatives, initiatives like that of  Safe Earth represent a changing mentality in industry 

 

SafeEarth’s sole focus is to generate capital and build a community which is able to repair the ecological damage done to the planet. Safe Earth also collaborates with another green charity called The Earth Fund, which has raised around 50 ETH ($125,000 at the time of writing) to be used for similar causes. 

 

#PlasticChallenge

As a part of their plan to raise awareness for ecological causes SafeEarth have also started a #PlasticChallenge on twitter, which urges people to get rid of plastic waste. The challenge (which launched on 27th of March) rewards users from a prize pool of $3,600 in SAFEEARTH tokens. 

 

In the short time since the challenge began the SAFEEARTH token has been listed on the number one DEX Uniswap, recorded $3 million in trading volume and locked away more than $1.5 million in liquidity. 

 

SAFEEARTH Token Burn & Benefits

The SAFEEARTH token is a deflationary asset that uses an autonomous yield and liquidity generation protocol. Each transaction charges a total of 4% in fees, which is then broken up evenly with 1% going to charities, 1% refunded to holders, 1% for advertising and 1% token lock-ups to increase liquidity. By burning at least 50% of the total supply after launch, (which will go to a black hole address) SafeEarth ensures increased token scarcity and liquidity. 

 

$SAFEMARS

$SAFEMARS is the sister token to SafeEarth and available on PancakeSwap exchange. The token uses very similar tokenomics to SAFEEARTH and over 50% of the tokens have already been burned. As none of the transaction fees from SafeMars go towards charity the company has chosen to give more back to users, with a total of 2% going instantly back to the holders wallets and the other 2% is auto-locked to increase scarcity and liquidity. Right now the number of $SAFEMARS holders is growing steadily with 93,699 holders at the time of writing. 

 

Save Earth Through Safe Earth

Harnessing blockchain technology through it’s unique protocol in the interest of both charitable giving and community incentives is helping SafeEarth to stand out from its competition. This $100,000 donation is just the beginning of the company’s mission to effect a lasting and positive change to the planet. 

 

SafeEarth blockchain eco project is already gearing up for another large donation with another 35 ETH (roughly $87,600) reserved for 5 charities that focus on humanitarian causes, such as access to clean water and wildlife preservation. The charities will be chosen by the SafeEarth community and will be announced on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2021.

Did Elon Musk’s ‘jet fuel’ set GameStop (and Bitcoin) ablaze?

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Depending on where you stand on the GameStop saga, which saw organized retail traders extract $6 billion from Wall Street overnight, you may think someone should either take the matches away from Elon Musk, or give him more.

The CEO and “Technoking” of Tesla was accused of pouring “jet fuel” on the GameStop short-squeeze at a critical moment by hedge fund manager David Einhorn, founder of Greenlight Capital, in a letter to investors published Thursday.

Einhorn said Elon Musk and venture capitalist Chamath Palihapitiya were the real instigators behind the short-squeeze, claiming both had supplied “the real jet fuel” for the pump with their tweets and TV appearances.

“We note that the real jet fuel on the GME squeeze came from Chamath Palihapitiya and Elon Musk, whose appearances on TV and Twitter, respectively, at a critical moment further destabilized the situation,” wrote Einhorn, according to Markets Insider.

Amid the orchestrated short-squeeze on GameStop by redditors on r/WallStreetBets, Elon Musk tweeted what some interpreted as his support for the endeavor. On Jan. 26, shortly after GME stock was pumped 91% in a single day, Musk tweeted the phrase “Gamestonk!!” accompanied by a link to the WallStreetBets sub-reddit.

Over the course of the next 24 hours, GME stock soared 134%, climbing from a unit price of $147 to $347. The following 24 hours brought even more fireworks, and by Jan. 28, the value of GameStop shares had hit an all time high of $483 — an 18,693% increase on the stock’s value just nine months earlier.

Chamath Palihapitiya appeared to voice his support for the short-squeeze on Jan. 27, when he told interviewers on CNBC that the GameStop saga was an example of the man on the street pushing back against the man on Wall Street.

Einhorn said that “quasi-anarchy” now reigns, based on what he sees as toothless regulation of the stock market. Einhorn compared the situation, where “the laws don’t apply to [Elon Musk]” to the defunding of the police force.

“Many who would never support defunding the police have supported — and for all intents and purposes have succeeded — in almost completely defanging, if not defunding, the regulators,” said Einhorn.

Previously Elon Musk was suggested to have unduly influenced the cryptocurrency market with his vocal support of Bitcoin (BTC) and Dogecoin (DOGE) via Twitter. Legal professionals suggested in February that Musk’s tweets may have acted as a catalyst for the coins’ gains at the time, and warned that such tweets could attract SEC attention.

Musk laughed off the suggestion at the time, claiming that he would welcome any SEC investigation into his tweets, and that he simply liked “dogs and memes.”

Turkey to ban cryptocurrency payments

Republished by Plato

Published

on

A new ban in Turkey will prohibit crypto holders from using their digital assets for payments, in addition to preventing payment providers from adding funds to their digital wallets at crypto exchanges.

According to a Friday announcement by the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, the ban will come into effect on April 30, rendering any crypto payments solutions and partnerships illegal.

The bank stated, “any direct or indirect usage of crypto assets in payment services and electronic money issuance” will be forbidden.

While banks are excluded from the regulation, which means users can still deposit Turkish lira on crypto exchanges using wire transfers from their bank accounts, payment providers will be unable to provide deposit or withdrawal services for crypto exchanges.

Payment providers and digital wallets are widely used in Turkey to transfer fiat funds to crypto exchanges and vice versa. Major global exchange Binance partnered with local payment provider Papara when they first entered the Turkish market to provide a lira onramp for several different cryptocurrencies. 

This new regulation means that users have two weeks to clear their balances if they exclusively use payment providers as fiat-to-crypto gateways. 

Historically, the Turkish government has always had a tight grip on the payment ecosystem. In 2016, Turkey banned major global payment provider PayPal in the country.

Crypto regulation is a hot topic for Turkey in recent months. Last month, the Turkish Ministry of Treasury and Finance announced that they are monitoring the crypto ecosystem and working with the Central Bank, Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency, and Capital Markets Board to regulate crypto.
