Program info

NEAR is a simple, scalable, and secure blockchain platform designed to provide the best possible experience for developers and users, which is necessary to bridge the gap to mainstream adoption of decentralized applications. NEAR's unique nightshade sharding design allows the protocol to scale almost linearly with the number of shards. In addition to high transaction throughput, NEAR also has very fast finality and support for mainstream programming languages for developers to easily build decentralized applications.
