NEO integrated into Chinese Blockchain-based Service Network
China proceeds with its plan to become the global infrastructure provider for blockchain solutions. Starting from August 10, the developers of six private blockchains - Tezos, NEO, Nervos, EOS, IRISnet and Ethereum - will be able to build their apps and run nodes on the Chinese state-backed Blockchain-based Service Network (BSN). The country confirms its policy of aggressive expansion with emerging technologies, including 5G and Artificial Intelligence.
The public blockchains will benefit from BSN’s cheap services and interoperability corporate blockchains integrated with the ecosystem. Moreover, they will get access to financial data from China UnionPay.
We’ve taken a lot of thoughts about who would be the first public chains to be integrated. Besides Ethereum and EOS we have disclosed in April, we decided to include another international public chain Tezos, and two prominent China-originated projects NEO and Nervos, Yifan He, CEO of Beijing Red Date Technology, commented.
NEO/USD: Technical picture
NEO/USD topped at $11.52, which is the highest level since June 11. While the coin has retreated to $11.40 by press time, it is still above the critical support area created by psychological $11.00 and $10.70 (50-hour and 200-hour SMA, the lower line of the 1-hour Bollinger Band). If it is broken, the sell-off may be extended to $10.00.
On the upside, a sustainable move above Tuesday's high of $11.52 is needed for the upside to gain traction. The next resistance comes at $12.00 and $13.82, which is the highest level since June 2.
