NEO is the first-ever blockchain project to join Microsoft’s open-source .NET Foundation.

The foundation was created on March 31st, 2014, to improve open-source software development and make collaboration easier around the .NET Framework.

It is a massive milestone for both parties, as this partnership will help them to work together, while also allowing millions of developers to build the foundation of the next-gen Internet.

During the conference, Head of NGD Seattle said the following:

“As the first blockchain project to join the .NET Foundation, we’re excited to come together based on our shared commitment to open-source, to developers, and to worldwide community collaboration. Based on our shared core values and principles, I am confident that this partnership will accelerate developer innovation to drive mass adoption of blockchain and build the foundation for the next-gen Internet.
