Developer Governance

NEAR’s platform is built by builders for builders, just like you. Do you have a great idea for the next big NEAR innovation?

Overview

Improvements to the NEAR standards and protocol are overseen by various developer working groups with support from the community. These working groups discuss and vote on NEAR Enhancement Proposals (NEPs), which are also used to establish the protocol’s roadmap trajectory.
