    "I'm a cryptocurrency newbie, so maybe I'm missing the significance of NEO, or even a clear sense of what the company does. I *think* that NEO can help me make transfers and transactions of various currencies on different online platforms. The website is handsome but I really wanted a plain English account of what the company does. "

    "Nice transactions and low fees. Limited places to spend, like most altcoins, but that will change with time. This one's a little pricier than some other alts, but is much more stable."
