    NEL’s founder Liu Yongxin said that NEL is actively promoting NEO game ecological construction. The first is to hold the NEO game competition to attract game projects to join NEO game ecosystem. Second, we have done a lot of infrastructure construction, such as wallet entry, game distribution platform, and assets trading platform. The NEO Game Competition and the upcoming BlaCat project will work together to build an early NEO game eco-infrastructure and use this facility to attract more game projects to join in then realize positive feedbacks and a virtuous cycle.
