We put usability first in our mission to change the world with Web3
NEAR is a blockchain built to be simple, secure and scalable.
The Web3 promise
Ethereum has provided a vision of what's possible, but with NEAR, you can start building Web3 apps that can scale for mass-adoption today.
Low cost & high speed through better scaling technology.
Frictionless onboarding for users and developers.
Low cost. High speed. Effortless scale.
Nightshade sharding enables seamless scaling with minimal fees.
Time to Finality
Climate neutral, now and forever.
Certified carbon neutral
NEAR is certified carbon neutral by South Pole, the industry lead in carbon offsetting solutions.
Low energy footprint
NEAR's innovative blockchain design uses a fraction of the energy other networks use, and requires no sort of power-draining "crypto mining" to perform transactions.
Backed by the best
“NEAR is poised to be a leading smart contract blockchain platform, combining first-rate technology with a fast-growing developer ecosystem. We’re excited to support NEAR as we ramp up our investments in the digital asset space.”
Partner, Tiger Global
“In the long run, all blockchains will need to horizontally scale to support the massive scale that’s coming with mainstream adoption. ETH 2.0 sees this same outcome, but NEAR delivers that actual experience right now.”
Managing Partner, Dragonfly Captial
“NEAR has done a great job from a technology standpoint, and we want to help them achieve a level of developer, user, ecosystem adoption which reflects their current level of technology innovation.”
