NEAR Protocol NEAR
Scaling Focused L1
NEAR is a layer 1 blockchain that uses a unique scaling mechanism (Nightshade sharding) and makes it especially easy to onboard new users through named accounts. It aims to open the door to mass adoption for Web3.
The project is considered fundamental, and based on tokenomics and historical data, there is a potential for significant growth, even matching a 10x increase during the peak of the next bull run. More
NEAR has quite an impressive website that goes really well with their goal of bringing usability. More
I'm torn between 4 and 5 stars. Near has borrowed a lot of the best elements from some of the leading blockchain projects and incorporated it into their own to create a very solid product. More

- Telegram: Extremely active
- Twitter: Quite active. 50+ retweets and comments per tweet. More
Active telegram, big twitter following, has discord, wechat and everything else necessary covered.
Current generation of Layer 1 solution tackling scalability (through sharding) and interoperability (layer 2). More
NEAR established in 2017, Near Protocol boasts a formidable team of over 200 members, including a core group with extensive experience who were previously part of major corporations and organizations like Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Consensys, and more. More
NEAR Protocol operates on the basis of Public Proof of Stake and Sharding mechanisms. In other words, NEAR functions as a community-operated cloud platform. More
