Near Protocol is a platform that helps users overcome all the barriers that usually hold them back in the Web3 space– from complicated UX to the high cost of scaling.
With the innovation of Nightshade sharding, we've achieved unparalleled scalability that can handle any surge in demand – overcoming a major limitation of other Web3 protocols.
