Neo issues new mainnet update
The Neo Global Development (NGD) has announced a new version of the core Neo2 node client, neo-cli v2.12.0. This update increases the overall block size limit and improves overall network health. The GAS limit has gone up from 10 to 50, while the max number of transactions per block has dropped from 500 to 200.
This increase in gas limit is for Neo’s upcoming DeFi – Flamingo. The new updates will ensure network stability by compensating for an expected increase in contract execution time.
NEO/USD daily chart
NEO buyers have stayed in control for three straight days, charting the three green soldiers pattern as it went up from $20.35 to $25.15. The price reached intraday highs of $25.90, charting a 52-week high. In the process, the price has crossed the upper curve of the 20-day Bollinger Band and the relative strength index has crept into the overbought zone. Both these indicators show that the price is presently overvalued and will face bearish correction soon. The immediate target for correction will be $24.50, bringing the price back inside the 20-day Bollinger Band.
