NEO + ONT partner to build a cross-chain plaform

As NASH has some kind of connection with NEO and will support it from the start, this might be interesting for some of you:
NEO announced its partnership with Ontology to build a cross-chain platform and establish the foundation a next-gen Internet!
With regards to NASH, I am curious (1) how serious NASH is considering the listing of ONT/ONG. (2) Plus if NASH could play a role in this new platform.


I have been trying to grok what this actually means. I get that they’re making NEO & ONT cross chain … but why? Why not just blend the two in into one chain, if you’re doing that? I’ve spoken with others who are pretty knowledgeable who are likewise a bit baffled by this move. Are we missing something?
