On July 25th Antshares (ANS) re-branded as NEO, with a logo of "NEO smart economy". The changes coming with re-branding are ongoing, here are some of the highlights.
The Neo team says the new website design is now finalized and will go live August 8th.
Also on August 8th the NEO 2.0 will launch, it is in the process of upgrading all non-consensus nodes.
Here's the info on wallets: "when consensus nodes are updated, users will be prompted to update when starting the old Antshares 1.x client" Users can copy the "chain" folder into new NEO2.0 client folder to speed syncing.
If users have NEO/ANS, NEO/GAS/ANC on an exchange, no action is required duing the switch over.
I've tried three times to download the antshares wallet with no luck so I'm just going to wait and download the new wallet after the 8th
This from the NEO team:
"After the rebranding to Neo, we're taking the oppotunity to update block-chain network and it will be another busy 2 weeks and we thank you for your patience and understanding of our tech focus these coming days".
