While Ethereum is currently the most popular smart contract platform, there are interesting alternatives like Neo. However, Neo only rarely appears in scientific literature. Moreover, comparisons of smart contract platforms hardly employ a structured approach, but rather apply different criteria to each platform.
This work performs an in-depth comparison between Ethereum and Neo in a structured manner. We derive a catalogue of criteria from related work and use it to identify differences and similarities worthy of discussion. We show how Ethereum and Neo differ in key aspects, ranging from the general goal to technical issues like the execution and fee model and practical aspects like the maturity of its features and documentation.
