NEAR Protocol NEAR

The only platform powerful enough to put the Open Web into the hands of everyday people

NEAR is one of the most highly anticipated technologies of 2020 because it addresses both the scaling and usability problems which have prevented existing chains from breaking out and caused fees to explode, so apps finally have the potential to operate at consumer scale with real consumers.

NEAR is a decentralized application platform which is built atop the NEAR Protocol, a revolutionary public proof-of-stake blockchain which uses sharding to scale and an innovative account model to make apps similarly usable to those on today’s web. Unlike most “next generation” blockchains, NEAR’s homogeneous sharding design allows developers to take advantage of push-to-deploy simplicity while benefiting from the Nightshade sharding design, which provides dynamic scalability and stabilizes fees – all of which is comfortably hidden from developers and users.

Blockchain apps are complicated. NEAR makes building, using and scaling them simple.
