Welcome to the NEAR Discourse! Here we will talk about the protocol, the future of decentralization, blockchain applications, governance structures (DAOs), and more! NEAR’s mission is to enable community-driven innovation to benefit people around the world. NEAR Protocol makes building and deploying decentralized apps (and exchanging NFTs) easier, faster, and cheaper than any other blockchain. Create hybrid projects using the ETHEREUM<->NEAR Rainbow Bridge. Features such as its contract-based account model and NEAR Drops make NEAR significantly more usable for developers and end-users. Find out more about NEAR Protocol on our website, follow us on Twitter, or join our community on Discord.
