About Neon Exchange (NEX) ICO

According to their website, NEX is a platform for high-performance decentralized exchange and payment. The exchange enables transfers across multiple blockchains such as NEO and Ethereum. Their payment service enables third-party smart contracts on NEO to send and receive global assets such as NEO and GAS as part of their computation. While NEX has received regulatory approval in Europe, their NEX tokens have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, which means if you are in the US, you probably won’t be able to take part in their ICO.
