My intention here is to provide a consolidated list of the most important links for getting started in the NEAR community. We are creating so many opportunities to learn, grow, and build your own value systems throughout ecosystems of communities. That’s why this forum post simply aims to redirect anyone who is exploring the NEARverse
Please feel free to edit and include more places to go!

This category is for the Analytics Guild to share metrics and insights related to NEAR Ecosystem. We hope to build trust in our governance systems by promoting accountability.
Where does NEAR communicate?
The best sources of truth (other than the NEAR blockchain) are probably GitHub and this forum, intended for governance. As expected, NEAR is a complex ecosystem with many interconnected organizations and communities. To simplify this, we often use terms like “guilds” and “squads.”
Really, the NEAR community is everywhere! Join to discover opportunities and build momentum toward your goals. Feel free to make a post here on the forum in order to share any ideas or specific projects and proposals.
This category is for discussion regarding the NEAR community, including various guilds, DAOs, and individual contributors.
