Made with you in mind.

NEAR is a scalable smart contract platform that supports decentralized applications of almost any kind. Leverage an ecosystem of components backed by cutting edge technology.

Hosted Wallet

The NEAR Wallet lets your users authorize low-stakes transactions without multiple pop-ups or, in many cases, without even holding tokens.

Instant Transfers

Transfer tokens directly between accounts on NEAR or bridge assets from other platforms to create next-generation financial applications.

Common Languages

Write contracts using TypeScript (a typed superset of JavaScript) or any other language which compiles to Web Assembly (WASM).

Sharded Scaling

The network scales horizontally using the same sharding technology that powers databases behind the largest companies in the world.

Strong Consensus

NEAR uses the "Nightshade" consensus, which is a Byzantine Fault Tolerant algorithm designed for speed, simplicity and security.

Flexible Tokens

The network is powered by the NEAR token but allows you to bridge from other networks as well so users have the best possible experience.
