The main network cryptocurrency NEO has been successfully updated. According to the developers, the upgrade of the blockchain has made it more stable and productive.

According to team, reducing the transaction confirmation time to 15 seconds will prevent the risk of double spending and will be convenient for users of financial applications.

With this upgrade Neo consensus nodes are now also running the code that improves the memory pool performance, which further reduces the operational burden on the network and ensures block times can stay minimized during higher transaction volume on the network. [...] With the improvements from dBFT 2.0 consensus, NEO should now posses the reliability necessary for more businesses to begin using the NEO blockchain for point-of-sale solutions.
