Neo Foundation announces new features: file storage and digital identity

Neo3 wants to move towards file storage and decentralized ID next.

In an open letter to the community of the Neo crypto project, the Neo Foundation reflected on developments over the past four years and made the first hints about future plans

Bitcoin Up, the third iteration of the smart contract-enabled blockchain, should enable the storage of files (file storage) and decentralized identification (D-ID).

Neo is currently 22nd in terms of market capitalization among cryptocurrencies.

The crypto project had a strong year , during which cross-chain interoperability for its own blockchain was established in cooperation with Ontology and Switcheo

The self-proclaimed “Smart Economy” was also successful when it jumped on the DeFi hype, as the cooperation between Binance and Neo , which runs under the name Flamingo Finance, reached a value of 1.5 billion US dollars in invested assets (TVL).

Despite the successes in the areas of interoperability and decentralized financial services (DeFi), the Foundation indicates in its open letter that it intends to steer Neo3 in two completely new directions in the future, namely to file storage and decentralized identity. The two planned features will be named NeoFS and NeoID.
