What is Gas?
GAS is better known as NEO GAS is what fuels the NEO platform. You can equate it to the dividend payment for owning NEO. This means that in the main NEO platform-similar to Ethereum-there are two tokens. We have the main cryptocurrency called NEO and the other is what you get as a reward when you store your NEO coins locally called GAS. At the moment, if you own a single NEO coin in your wallet, you are rewarded with 0.0005 GAS per day. Check out the rate of GAS reward.
Within the NEO platform, GAS will be the cryptocurrency that will be used to settle payments and not NEO coins. 100M GAS tokens will be released within 22 years with 80% of these coins expected to be in circulation within the first 12 years.
