Pangolin on NEAR Protocol
A world where people control their assets, data, and power of governance.
The NEAR protocol is a sharded, proof-of-stake, layer-one blockchain that is simple to use, secure and scalable.
A vast number of applications, infrastructure and support built by an ever-expanding network of developers, entrepreneurs and creatives.
That exists to foster ecosystem development and innovation through grant funding.
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 web keeps evolving. It started with static web pages, became social and interactive, and Web3 is the next big evolutionary step.
Web1 could be defined as the first version of the internet, think 1994-2004. Usage was limited to browsing static pages.
Internet became interactive and social. Also, it became centralized and owned by a few big businesses.
Web3 is the vision of a decentralized internet that gives users back control of their data, identity and assets.
Web3 is only possible with the blockchain - read why
NEAR is the next generation of blockchains. It is a user-friendly and carbon-neutral blockchain, built from the ground up to be performant, secure, and infinitely scalable.
In technical terms, NEAR is a layer one, sharded, proof-of-stake blockchain built with usability in mind.
In simple terms, NEAR is blockchain for everyone. It enables to bring Web3 to the masses.
