What is the NEAR Protocol?

A blockchain, NEAR offers high speeds, low transaction fees, and a carbon-neutral Proof-of-Stake (PoS) network.

Why invest in the NEAR Protocol?

Recently, NEAR launched Nightshade Sharding to handle increased activity without compromising security. As a result, NEAR can scale linearly, which makes it attractive to millions, maybe even billions, of users. That's because it now can handle high volumes of transactions while keeping its high speeds and lower transaction fees.

Upcoming developments means NEAR's hardware requirements will also become lower and, therefore, position NEAR for mainstream usage.

What are the NEAR Protocol's pros and cons?


  • NEAR is a high-speed and low-transaction fee blockchain.
  • Its high-efficiency PoS network is carbon neutral.


  • Solana and Cardano are strong, popular competitors.
  • NEAR's price can change drastically at a moment’s notice.

What makes the NEAR Protocol stand out?

Speed, scalability, and sustainability are the main strengths of the NEAR Protocol thanks to its high efficiency and sharding technology. Its computational and storage workload is spread out, which helps increase the number of transactions per second.

Sharding also helps reduce network congestion. Although Ethereum is testing sharding for greater scalability, NEAR is still slightly ahead.
