Near Protocol Ecosystem, Smart Contract Platform
About NEAR Protocol
Near is a decentralized application platform that enables developers to build and deploy applications on a public blockchain.
It is designed to be fast, secure, and scalable, allowing developers to create dApps that can be used by anyone in the world. Near is powered by its own native cryptocurrency, NEAR tokens, which are used to pay for transactions and services on the platform. The platform also features a built-in consensus mechanism called Nightshade, which allows for faster transaction times and improved scalability.
Near also provides tools for developers to create their own custom tokens and smart contracts. Near's goal is to make it easy for developers to build applications that are secure, reliable, and cost-effective.
