What is NEAR?

NEAR protocol is a Layer 1 proof-of-stake blockchain designed with a sharding design to improve scalability.
NEAR was launched in 2020 and developed by the Switzerland based NEAR Foundation, which was founded by a couple of machine learning researchers.
In 2021, NEAR launched their Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible mainnet, dubbed Aurora.
Anyone with a NEAR Wallet can trade NEAR cryptocurrency, buy NFTs on NEAR marketplaces, or earn yield on their crypto assets with the many financial products available.

What makes NEAR unique?

One of NEAR Foundation’s stated goals is to focus on developer and user friendliness.
To this end, NEAR has features such as human-readable account names as opposed to the usual wallet addresses consisting of random characters.

What are the core features of NEAR?

  • Sharding technology to enable high speeds and low gas fees
  • Segregation of responsibilities to different nodes; for example, some to validate transactions from different shards, some to produce the actual blocks which contain transactions from all shards, and some to observe the network to detect malicious behaviour.
  • Quick finality
  • EVM compatible smart contract capability with Aurora

What is the native token of NEAR and where can I buy it?

The native token is NEAR. It is needed to pay for gas fees for all transactions on NEAR. It can also be staked with validators for rewards, and governance of the chain.
NEAR can be purchased through Centralized Exchanges, including Binance, KuCoin and others.
NEAR Foundation has also developed the Rainbow Bridge, a trustless bridge between NEAR, Aurora and Ethereum.
