How to Earn GAS While Holding NEO
While holding NEO, you start generating GAS automatically as more blocks are generated by the construction of the blockchain. With every new block generated, 8 GAS are distributed for all 100 million NEO in existence. This is similar to Ethereum, but in contrast to Bitcoin, where the value of a bitcoin mined is the same as the value of a bitcoin purchased. GAS is used to pay for transaction fees on the NEO network.

But if you are worried about security, you can also look into connecting with NEON wallet. This way, you can technically earn free GAS simply by holding NEO and create an income.
