What Is Near Protocol?
NEAR Protocol is a public Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain that supports smart contracts and was designed as a community-run cloud computing platform. NEAR was created by the NEAR Collective to host decentralized applications (dApps), and it aspires to compete with Ethereum and other leading smart contract-enabled blockchains such as EOS and Polkadot. The native token of NEAR, also known as NEAR, is used to pay for transaction fees and storage. Token holders who participate in network consensus as transaction validators can also stake NEAR tokens.
