Let's build the Open Web!

NEAR is secure enough to manage high value assets like money, assets and  identity while being performant and affordable enough to make things useful for everyday people.

Technically speaking, NEAR is a layer 1 smart contract platform (like Ethereum but cheaper and faster) that scales by parallelizing storage and compute using a technique called “sharding”.
