Blockmason Link Announces NEO Platform and Smart Contract Support
Blockmason, a leading developer of foundational, base-layer blockchain technologies, today announced the addition of NEO public blockchain support to the official Link development roadmap. Developers of web, mobile and other decentralized applications (“DApps”) that interact with smart contracts on the NEO blockchain will be able to use Blockmason’s Link to accelerate their development while reducing overhead and costs.
Blockmason’s Link is a new blockchain infrastructure-as-a-service that allows app, web and other software developers to use smart contracts and programmatic blockchains like NEO in their applications without requiring any blockchain experience. Using Link, a developer can create classic, conventional web-based APIs for any smart contract written on a programmatic blockchain. At the heart of Link is BLINK, the utility token which provides Link users with API transaction capacity.
Founded in 2014, NEO is a community-driven, open-source project that aims to create a “Smart Economy.” NEO uses blockchain technology to digitize assets, and automate the management of these digital assets using smart contracts. Since launching its main-net in 2016, NEO has become home to hundreds of popular DApps and a global community of DApp developers.
“We are excited to support developers building applications based on the NEO blockchain,” said Michael Chin, CEO of Blockmason. “As a developer-friendly blockchain ecosystem, NEO is well-positioned to help drive the mass adoption of blockchain technologies. Link will help these developers build and scale their NEO DApps faster while improving user adoption.”
Link is viewed as the missing component in blockchain-based app development. With Link, developers and users alike can interact with smart contracts like any other web API. There are no “gas” cryptocurrencies to acquire, browser plugins to install or other unnecessary hurdles. There’s also no servers or web infrastructure to maintain or monitor. A developer simply adds the smart contracts they want to use in their app to Link. Once added, they can read from and write to these smart contracts just like any other API.

Blockmason is a world-class developer of blockchain technology, focused on building the foundational base-layer frameworks that support the blockchain revolution. Their first product, the Credit Protocol, provides a standardized, secure and reliable means for recording and permanently storing mutually-confirmed debt or credit obligations on the blockchain. Lndr, the first decentralized mobile app powered by the Credit Protocol, leverages the blockchain to allow friends to quickly record and settle casual debts and IOUs in dozens of currencies. Link, their latest innovation, simplifies development, improves user experience and increases the adoption of decentralized apps.
